Street Fighter IV Collector’s Edition Comparison: NA vs. EU

Details emerged today about North America’s Street Fighter IV Collector’s Edition. The European Collector’s Edition details have been widely know for some time now. There are some differences between the two and since we cater to both sides of the pond we have decided to pit both Collector’s Editions in (Mortal Kombat?) a Street Fight to find out which one comes out on top.

Age of Booty Will Be Patched, Probably In The Eye

Capcom has fessed up that the European Trial version and the North American trophy patch were actually leaked and not ready for prime time at all. That is the reason you may be experiencing stability issues, connection problems and, if you live in Europe, an overwhelming feeling of exclusion. A patch is coming soon to fix all this. Actually, two patches.

UK PS3 charts: Nothing can stop WaW

UK PS3 charts: Nothing can stop WaW

The feeling of ‘deja vu’ is in the air, since this is the fourth consecutive week Call of Duty: World at War remains in the top of the charts.

Activision has hit the jackpot with their “one CoD per year” tactic. The next Call of Duty Modern Warfare title is due to visit us in Fall 2009.

Here at PS3 Attitude towers we are ok with that “Fifalization” of the franchise, as far as they keep producing innovative quality games.

But let’s see Chart Track’s UK Charts for week ending 6 December 2008…

Get in the Killzone: concrete release date

Get in the Killzone: concrete release date

We finally have it people; the release date for 2009′s game of the year, Killzone 2, has been revealed. Right at the end of an interview on G4 TV.

The video itself mostly consists of someone being shot to bits while running about with two new weapons, one of which is the flamethrower. It has to be said, this looks very much like the best weapon in the game, and the visuals are looking extremely close to that render footage seen wa back in 2005.

But the guns on display here are merely the cherry on the cake…

Yet more games get the trophy treatment – or do they?

In my blatant hunt for easy trophies this week, I came across 2 stories which filled me with glee. Two games are to be patched with trophies in the near future. In fact, they already were. Then one wasn’t. Then it never was in the first place.

Click through for some semblance of an explanation, from what I can gather.

MotoGP 08; a step to realism?

During 2007 Capcom announced that they now have the right to publish games based on the MotoGP franchise. At first, that decision seemed risky, since Namco used to develop Moto GP games.

The first footage of the game got us excited, with head of communications of Capcom Europe Ben Le Rougetel, promising us that the game would be able to be played by both amateur and experienced players. The system they were developing would be available to “read” the player’s reactions and decide the difficulty level he/she would be playing on.

Just a few months before the release of the game, an optimistic hype had been created around Capcom’s attempt to give us a “re-innovated” MotoGP experience.

Two months ago, the game hit the stores and gave gamers the opportunity to finally see for themselves what Capcom had managed to create.

Did Capcom’s take on the MotoGP franchise proved to be another mediocre bike simulator or a hidden gem?
