We’ve all seen the pics and lusted after the slimmer version of Sony’s behemoth, but what if 120 GB just won’t cut it in your media rich world?

In the past we have seen Final Fantasy titles releasing around a year after the Japanese launch in Europe, and sometimes several months after North America.

Took them long enough. The team at Slant Six in conjunction with Sony Computer Entertainment America is finally (finally) ready to unleash the mother of all patches to one of the games that has needed them the most.

We’ve already told you what we thought of Avatar with our first-hand preview of the game. But how about getting to see what all the fuss is about yourself?
Check out this trailer of the upcoming Ubisoft produced sci-fi epic.
One of the largest additions to the wonderful world of LittleBigPlanet, water is about to make its debut as part of a recently announced DLC kit.
Of course, such a monumental enhancement is not something you introduce without some stringent testing. Hence, open to all, Media Molecule are now inviting LittleBigPlaneters to sign up for the Water beta.
Resonance of Fate is one of those rare beasts; a JRPG that is actually making roads out of Japan. Known as End of Eternity in the land of the rising sun, Resonance of Fate is close to being finished and localised for US and European markets.
But it isn’t the fact that this is one of the rare Japanese role-playing titles to be distributed elsewhere that grabbed our attention. No – it was the sheer scale of the project that opened our eyes to what the game might hold.
Fat Princess Ninjas we can understand. And then when we heard ninjas were coming, pirates were almost to be expected. But chefs?

Tamagotchi 2.0? The ultimate kid-friendly, odourless pet?
There’s nothing quite like taking the dog for a walk.
Whether it’s throwing a stick in the park or watching as your canine friend craps where he’s not supposed to crap, it’s a wonderful way to relax.
Unless you’re Jack Slate of course who, instead of telling his canine friend to stop chasing birds/terrified children, readily orders him into harms way to take down the bad guys.
It was the moment we’ve been waiting for since we heard that the God of War franchise was coming to our beloved PS3 all those moons ago.
What we weren’t quite prepared for was the sheer violence of the latest chapter in Kronos’ story. In fact, it didn’t matter if you spoke German, English or any other language in Hall 7 – everyone understood what was meant as wave after wave of awestruck gamers uttered the same refrain…
