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.
We just received word that ThreeSpeech, the semi-official UK/EU PlayStation 3 blog, will be closing their doors on April 17th.
The change is to make way for a new EU Official PS Blog along the lines of the much-lauded US site, and whilst we love that site with a passion it is sad to see ThreeSpeech moving on…
It seemed only yesterday that we were telling you about some new DLC for perpetually under-appreciated and allround excellent RPG Valkyria Chronicles. OK, it was actually last month but who’s counting?

So what do we think of the latest firmware (2.70) and the new additions it brings to the system?
One of the best PSN games out there, Wipeout HD, will be getting an update on April 8th as in tomorrow.
Included in v1.30 is the chance to earn 33 different online badges, game invites, and a new Spectator mode where you can watch races from the sidelines. In addition, the top three finishers will be treated to a special podium display. Talk about ultimate bragging rights.
You know what they always say: Why do buses always come in threes? Well you could say that MAG (Massive Action Game) is just like buses â€“ We wait nearly a year for more information about MAG, and then 3 pieces of news come at once, in the space of just 4 days.
Tony Iuppa, from Zipper Interactive, has been speaking to NowGamer who are behind the Play magazines in the UK…
Normally we have to painstakingly research a game before sitting down with developers to ask our pointed questions. But, as a magnanimous gesture, David Costarigot, Project Manager at Nobilis, the company publishing the game, sat down with Lauri HyvÃ¤rinen, the Designer at Frozenbyte and makers of Trine, and have done the interview for us.
Wow, you guys are signing your hearts out! Sony have announced to Eurogamer that nearly 100,000 SingStar videos have been uploaded online, thatâ€™s 96,000 to be exact.
We hope you like statistics because we got moreâ€¦
Dan, The European Home Business Manager, has spoken out about the criticism from gamers in the region about the variation that Europe receives when compared to North America.

Last week we said that PlayTV is getting a new patch that adds new features including an SD upscaler, skip the menu system to go straight to watching TV, and allowing you to adjust the volume on the Blu-ray remote.
Well the patch has now been released today! The update will take the software version of the PlayTV device to v1.10.
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.
New and crazy gadgets and abilities are just a few of the goodies we can expect from the developers over at Insomniac.
The game will also “answer some of the franchise fansâ€™ largest questions.” Does this mean we finally learn about Ratchet’s origins? We believe so…
There’s a new Red Faction: Guerilla trailer out. With a great section showcasing the destructible scenery, there’s a lot about RF:D to look forward to come release date, but the trailer has left us with some concerns…
Tales of Vesperia, Namco Tales Studio’s crazy haired and wide-eyed story of ancient technology intermixed with global catastrophe, scored highly with critics from both the East and West alike (Famitsu gave it 35/40 while Edge scored it a heady 8/10) attracting a whole legion of new devotees to the series.
We have details of what’s coming as part of the upcoming PS3 version.
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. But has the public backlash doomed the add-on to failure before it even hits the Store?
Lookie! Lookie! Lookie! A super-secret new creature to be found marauding around the grassy plains of Capcom’s upcoming PSN game Flock! There’s even a video to prove it!
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.
That’s not entirely true of course, as what we do get is a (mostly empty) new site along with some intriguing footage that lends some credence of Altair (or maybe the Son of Altair) moving out of the dust bowl of Jerusalem next time around.
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.
