The North American Video Store has sported a ‘Search’ feature ever since its debut at last year’s E3.
Strangely, Sony has never decided to add the feature to the game front of the PlayStation Store in an effort to help sort through the ever-growing list of demos, trailers and wallpapers – well until now that is.
The battle of the turntables has officially begun. In one corner, we have Scratch: The Ultimate DJ. In the other, it’s DJ Hero. Who will reign victorious?
Numark Industries, in conjunction with Genius, Inc. have released the first images of the controller for Scratch: The Ultimate DJ under the title SCRATCH DECK. Why it’s in all caps? We’re not sure but it could have something to do with it being ultimate and all.
It seems like it was just yesterday that we announced Free Realms hitting the one million user mark. Oh wait, it was nine days ago! Today marks another milestone in one of the fastest growing games in the MMO genre.
After approximately only a month since launch, Free Realms have managed to rack up over two million user accounts! This time, however, we have a few stats to go along with that number…
Equal in magnitude to the Super Bowl, the Masters at Augusta and the National Curling Championships all rolled into one, the Champions League Final, the paragon of Europe’s footballing knock-out tournaments, kicks off in Rome, Italy tonight.
In an undoubtedly pricey manoeuvre, Activision have seen an opportunity and will announce upcoming super-shooter Modern Warfare 2 to the masses through an ad spot secured during the event.
The people at Capcom have been tinkering away on Dark Void for quite some time now, with the game encompassing a number of themes and taking cues from several well-known games and movies.
In the latest video for the project, the brains behind the operation talk about the influences which have affected the game and how it has changed since the original concept was first floated.
We have had a long distance relationship with Rhino Studios’ shoot-em-up-with-a-camera title Afrika since it came to our attention back in 2006.
The original trailer for Afrika didn’t reveal anything of the gameplay, a topic that became quite the ‘Internet wildfire’ as speculation mounted about what you might actually do in the game. Much later, a second trailer showed us a human character taking photographs, and there was even talk of the game shipping with a ‘pressure mat’ that could sense your movements as you got closer to the wildlife.
We waited with baited breath for news of Afrika’s release into the West. So what happened?
As waiting for countdowns to expire just isn’t our thing, we’ve kept unusually quiet about the whole “Kojima-gate” speculation rattling around the intertubes over the last few weeks.
It’s not that we thought you weren’t interested – we know you are – but, rather than report on a counter (or a counter counting down to another counter), we thought we’d wait for some substance before offering up our opinion.
The roster of great LBP content is set to continue this week with the release of the latest set of snazzy outfits. Based on the 2000AD comic series, we ‘judge’ that these new wardrobe additions to the LBP canon will prove to be hugely popular.
Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time is set to land on the PS3 at the end of this year and we at Attitude Towers are keeping a firm eye on how the game is progressing.
And so we were delighted when we heard (literally) that it is being hyped up to be even bigger than the previous Ratchet and Clank game on the PS3; Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction.
Most likely to be overshadowed by the release of inFAMOUS, Cross Edge can be found at your local retailers today as well. For those of you unaware, the RPG is the result of five (that’s right, FIVE) different companies collaborating for one amazing game.
Capcom, Nippon Ichi Software, Bandai Namco, Gust, and Idea Factory all bring their top franchises together for a battle royal. Best of all? You can play as your favorite character from them!
Originally posted on Eurogamer’s Portuguese site, we’re including the new Bayonetta trailer here courtesy of Buttonbasher who’ve graciously provided a handy embedded version.
Kamiya-san’s kinetic tale of bullets and witches is looking more and more impressive and, dare we say, adult. Expect coarse language, furtive glimpses of supple witch-flesh (we mentioned Bayonetta’s clothing is essentially what amounts to sentient hair, right?) and totally over the top action.
It is 8 a.m. on the set of Stan Lee’s ‘Who Wants To Be A Superhero?’, and auditions are in full swing. One by one, regular members of the public appear with their superhero persona, backed up by a costumes made of plastic bags and a notion of the one thing that makes them better than you.
As you may have read, FUEL is the record-breaking racer from Codemasters and is due out June 5th.
To show off exactly what the game is like in terms of sheer size, Codemasters released a trailer which combines both the team discussing some of the technical aspects of the game with some of the breathtaking scenery from within the game itself.
It is Tuesday, and you know what that means, don’t you?
Yes, today and repeating every Tuesday, PS3 Attitude is becoming PSFree Attitude.
So as usual we’ll be giving away all sorts of freebies to our loyal Twitter followers every week with prizes ranging from PSN codes for new games and DLC to physical swag that we have here at Attitude Towers.
We told you it was a good time to be following us on Twitter, didn’t we?
After reporting its first loss in 14 years, Sony are now pulling out all the stops in an effort to make their business more efficient, including looking at new and inventive ways of cutting a dollar here and not spending a euro there.
One fairly obvious way of driving down costs is to work with fewer companies and negotiate lower prices based on the pretext that, as preferred suppliers, Sony will send more business their way.
According to our friends over at 9lives.be, Sony Belgium stated in a recent interview that we may not see the introduction of PSN Cards any time soon, if ever.
These have been in circulation for some time in the NA and Japan Territories, but have yet to show face anywhere in the EU region. Why is that, exactly?
We have another debut this week; a three-way debut. Ministry is bringing more metal to the Rock Band library with a three pack from hell. We say bring it on.
The Zombies are coming! The Zombies are coming! They are a 60’s English rock band, get it? The Cranberries complete the hat-trick debut with just one track, but we’ll take it anyway.
Warner Bros. have announced the many different DVD/Blu-ray releases for Watchmen, which is scheduled to hit home theaters in July. Currently we have the standard edition DVD and Blu-ray and then the 2-Disc Director’s Cut as well. Then there is the Watchmen: The End is Nigh The Complete Experience editions.
Bad news for bionic corporate America; they have lost one of their own in this state of economic turmoil. Depending on whom you ask at his former office, the bionic middle manager was summarily dismissed as part of a strategic downsizing or because of his role in an unfortunate high-five celebration mishap.
Don’t feel too bad for him, our bionic friend has bounced back and found a job already. Nothing as cool as a fireman or profitable as a middle manager, but it puts food on his bionic table. He’s a paperboy.
