Keep your eyes on the PSN Store when the downloadable game hits this Fall.
When the review copy of Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway came through my letterbox I was slightly apprehensive about playing it. My Granddad served in the 2nd World War and I am very aware of the way in which the war has affected people’s lives. I’ve stayed away from World War 2 games before because of this but I was determined to give this one a chance.
So was this the right thing to do, or should I have left well alone?
Since the newest instalment in the Motorstorm series (yep, it is now a series) is already out in the US, Game Director Nigel Kershaw decided to let us know that the lads over at Evolution Studios are eager to give us new content for the game on a weekly basis. Yes, you heard me right; on a WEEKLY BASIS!
Sony have sent out a questionnaire today to some of their PlayStation Network customers that specifically asks questions on their enjoyment of Siren: Blood Curse.
The questionnaire goes into detail about how customers liked the game and all the different elements, such as gameplay, controls, ease of use and graphics.

Christopher Kaminski, US Producer of Valkyria Chronicles, answers some reader submitted questions over at the PlayStation blog.
Insomniac announce final dates for the Resistance 2 beta. When will the servers go offline? And is there still a chance some late-comers can join the fight?
An enlightened few on the team at PS3 Attitude (Kawaii, MeEdIC and me, Phreaky) have
realised that Resistance 2 is phenomenal.
From playing the Beta we have selected our 5 shining beacons which have guided us to this gaming Shangri La. The team as a whole at PS3 Attitude Towers is not without its dissenters championing lesser games but hey – we’re not here to judge… Just pity.
Media Molecule have just announced that the LittleBigPlanet servers have been switched on.
What does that mean to you and I? If you’re one of the lucky people who have already got their copy of this …
Looking forward to Tom Clancy’s EndWar?
We are, and Ubisoft invited us to join in the fun at a preview event last week. We’ll have a full write up of our hands-on with EndWar and its voice control system later this week, but in the meantime you might like to know more about the factions and how their various weapons and upgrades stack up.
PS3 Attitude presents the first in a new feature entited “Trophy Wars”. Check out how the team is progressing in their trophy hunting endeavours as they attempt to scale to the top of the ranking leader-board.
With a new direction for the Prince of Persia series many gamers are asking if the title will match up to those that have gone before.UbiSoft have taken the brave step of including an active companion, Elika, to fight alongside the Prince and are hoping that she will bring a new depth to both the game play and the story.
Over the weekend I was able to get some hands on experience with Prince of Persia at the MCM Expo in London.
Those trophy reapers among you will be pleased to know that a 20MB download is now available for GTAIV. Pop the disc into your PS3, download the patch and get completing those challenges.

As you might know, we’ve been big fans and supporters of Criterion’s brilliant Burnout Paradise.
The high-octane, adrenaline-fuelled racing has been tweaked and tuned all year with additional challenges and even the addition of bikes for the first time in the franchise.
When we were the first site to announce planes in Burnout (even before Criterion could announce it at their own site!) we already knew that this was just the beginning of what they had planned.
Sony’s upcoming (and troubled) social app may be the victim of a malicious hacking attempt. Has Home inadvertently opened the door to PS3 modification?

According to what Frank Gibeau, President of EA and Glenn Schofield, General Manager of EA Redwood Shores stated in their interview to Variety, EA’s latest IPs will be followed by sequels. More specifically, the sequels of Bad Company and Army of Two are on the way!
“Bad Company has come out and done very well. “Army of Two sold very well. We’ve got sequel ideas planned for those”, stated Gibeau.
Although SF IV has already started its “career” at the Arcades, the release date for the PS3 version still remains unknown.
