Compared to the wimpy wimpy wimpy update of last week, this European PlatStation store update is quite hefty!
The highlights no doubt are Vidzone, the music video application, and four new add-ons for a few of the biggest PS3 games.
E3 is not just about the video games and booth babes. There’s much more to it than that, after all, you can’t hear that sneaky Helghast sneak up without a decent surround sound system or execute a perfect head shot in Call of Duty 4 with simply a Dualshock 3? Sure, it can get the job done but you want to be the best out there, don’t you?
We had the chance to try out Tritton Technologies latest surround sound headset, the AX Pro, which brings the ultimate listening experience straight to your ears. In addition, we also tested SplitFish’s FragFX controller designed specifically for the PS3.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma was one of the first must-have games on the PS3. The graphics were beautiful and the gameplay was spectacular. The game had its fair share of problems too, most notably, the camera angles. It’s good to hear, then, that Team Ninja has addressed this issue for the upcoming Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. The game takes everything that made the original Sigma good, and makes it better.
Exclusive to GameStop (and only in Spain), the PS3 is now available for â‚¬299.98 with two games. The bundles on offer include Gran Turismo 5 Prologue + MotorStorm, Resistance + Uncharted, GTA4 + Midnight Club Los Angeles, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue + GTA or, if you’d rather just one newer title, the console along with Killzone 2 for the same price.
We don’t know how long the offer lasts so, if you’re in Spain, RÃ¡pido! RÃ¡pido! Get them while you can.
We got a chance to see EA’s Dante’s Inferno up close at this year’s E3 and are happy to confirm that Visceral Games, the team behind the pant-wetting and well-received Dead Space, have only gone and done it again and have created something truly chilling.
By now everyone should be familiar with the concept behind Dante’s Inferno. Based on Dante Aligehri’s 13th century canticle of perdition, love and loss, the game takes a few things from The Divine Comedy and “re-imagines” them for the purpose of creating an exciting videogame.
Hitting the US Store yesterday, PopCap’s Heavy Weapon is an old-school arcade style shooter with some strategic elements thrown in for good measure.
Players assault enemies across 19 stages, going up against some challenging end …
While we’ve been busy clamouring for beta keys, it’s important to remember the real purpose for the Uncharted 2 beta: to find issues and then fix them.
As those of us in the Drake-themed testing playground – blind-tossing grenades and reporting bugs akimbo -may already know, the beta has now received its first update. Clocking up a healthy whole 10 points, the Naughty Dog developer wildspeculation has unearthed the following new artifacts over at PlayStation.com.
From Software’s Demon’s Souls is an example of something that might come across as fairly rudimentary but is, in fact, a complex and punishing venture into frustration and perseverance.
And if that sounds like gaming nirvana to you – you might want to check out the following.
This week on the Homerun we discuss the end of the Xi reality game in PlayStation Home, as well as a Killzone 2 apartment.
So let’s dive in! The big news this week is an end to an era – Xi has finished…
Many thanks to all our new (and existing) followers who dutifully re-tweeted and put their names into the virtual hat for an Uncharted 2 multi-player beta code.
The following people have now all received codes and should be well on their way towards plundering and co-operating with the best of them.
Congratulations to: attattattack, CrashDude55, Eweor, HempEffect, jonathan_bright, MaKUltra, meiklzh, Moose772 and YoBrenoops.
Fuzzyeyes are working day and night [you’ll get the reference soon] to bring us the incredible steampunk adventure, Edge of Twilight. We have managed to get hold of the new trailer for your delectation, in which hero Lex gets choppy with the bad guys.
If reading our preview didn’t give you enough reason to love the upcoming Fairytale Fights from PlayLogic, then perhaps a trailer showcasing the beautiful scenery all covered in blood will. We have the latest trailer from the game revealing the Volumetric Liquid System and Salami Violence in action…
If you remember correctly, we told you little about our most anticipated game.Well, we now reveal to you the world of you favorite fairytale. In Fairytale Fights, you’ll encounter everyone from the bedtime stories we read as a kid. You play as Little Red Riding Hood, who has fallen out of the spotlight and will do anything to get back to the top, even if that means hacking all of the other creatures to pieces. Do we have your attention now? Good.
FUEL, Pure, other four letter vehicular games that come to mind – the off-road racing arena is a burgeoning genre.
Now we get “Fireburst” (already showing innovation by shunning the mandatory four letter title rule), a new entry to the increasingly crowded high-octane driving field.
Reporting on new details about Max Payne 3 in the latest edition of Game Informer, our friends over at CVG have posted up some of the more salient points.
The acerbic and perpetually wronged Max is …
As PS3 Attitude continues to grow as a site, it’s quite evident that we’re very much reliant on you, our dear readers, to keep us going.
For the uninitiated, each Tuesday we run PSFree Attitude, a weekly Twitter-based giveaway that sees us hide game and DLC codes for both the EU and NA PlayStation Store throughout the site and invite our Twitter followers to locate and redeem them before anyone else. It’s a fun way of interacting with you guys and we freely admit it’s designed to increase awareness of the site. That said, not everyone who comments on the site is following us on Twitter and are hence automatically excluded from winning. We feel it’s time to address this.
Courtesy of the gang from Joystiq, we have a new trailer for the PC/PS3 hybrid MMO title, and though it shows off not one single frame of game-play, consider the fact it’s still receiving the trailer treatment as more proof that it’s very much still in development.
If you’ve been desperate for some new Burnout Paradise high-jinks, you probably already know that, this Thursday, the spectacle we know simply as Big Surf is finally opening up to members of the public.
The island is a veritable playground of super drifts and mammoth jumps and, not that the insignificant matter of price should matter but, we’ve got that too.
Andrew House, the SCEE boss believes that consumers will duplicate their behaviour from previous console cycles and invest into the PlayStation 3 as a means of ‘upgrading’ from a lower powered machine later on in the hardware timeline.
