MAG: “A new kind of war is coming…” – to Afghanistan, Mexico and Alaska

They haven’t made it terribly easy to find but there’s a new official MAG site up for your rabid ocular dissection.

In the grand tradition of recent reveals, there’s very little to get your teeth into so don’t get too excited just yet. In fact, all you get is a map – and a pretty bare one at that.

ThreeSpeech is dead; new EU PS Blog on the way

We just received word that ThreeSpeech, the semi-official UK/EU PlayStation 3 blog, will be closing their doors on April 17th.

Key Features to Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time

The official description page for Ratchet and Clank’s next adventure has been added to PlayStation.com and with it comes details of what we can expect this fall.

The game will also “answer some of the franchise fans’ largest questions.” Does this mean we finally learn about Ratchet’s origins? We believe so…

Resident Evil 5 DLC gets escape date and price.

The DLC for RE5 was announced a short while ago, and caused a decided uproar. With the game now out and receiving pretty decent reviews, Capcom have updated us with some salient points about the new Mode. Namely price and date.

Assassin’s Creed 2 – new site and teaser

After months of speculation, endless hours of heated debate and innumerable arguments both for and against the concept of Assassin’s Creed leaving the setting of the Holy Land (not to mention the odd fiery flag discussion), the teaser of the sequel arrives and … we get nothing.

Virtua Tennis 2009 Developer Diary 1 – That New Crowd Smell

Dear diary,
We recorded a video in which we talk about what we think will be the best PS3 tennis game of 2009. Since it looks like this will be the only PS3 tennis game in 2009 we are feeling pretty good about that claim. Never mind that, we are throwing the kitchen sink just in case. Gorgeous graphics, new locations, new players, and even new 3D crowds. We can still feel that new crowd smell, probably because Timmy keeps wearing it as cologne.
