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.

Round 1. FIGHT!
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.

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 letâ€™s see Chart Trackâ€™s UK Charts for week ending 6 December 2008â€¦
DolphGB departs on a secret mission and it’s up to Brodiesan to step in and make a mess of the weekly news recap from last week. What stories did we read and ultimately decided that making a cup of tea and looking for trophies was more attractive? Read on fearless PS3 Attituder.
Brand new trailer for the awaited Arkham Asylum videogame starring an older Niko Bellic (pictured). I kid, Niko only does a cameo. Sorry, I kid again, I don’t know who that guy in the picture is but you can bet the Bat-cave he is not Niko Bellic (or is he?).

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…
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.

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 â€œreadâ€ the playerâ€™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 Capcomâ€™s attempt to give us a â€œre-innovatedâ€ MotoGP experience.

Did Capcomâ€™s take on the MotoGP franchise proved to be another mediocre bike simulator or a hidden gem?
