North American PS Store Update For August 13th – Hope you like PSOne classics

If you thought the European Store update had a lot of Add-on content, you should see this North American update. The highlight of the Add-ons has to be the new PAIN Museum Environment that will cost you $5.99.

LittleBigPlanet has also received the Historical kit and costumes pack in case you’re bored of the months of content for this game that has released already.

Grin closes, developers break out and form Outbreak Studios

After numerous whispers through the industry grapevines over the last couple of weeks, the sad news that developer Grin has shut its doors has finally been confirmed.

Posting on their official web-site, founders Bo and Ulf Andersson state that it is with “a heavy heart” that the development studio is now defunct. Though associated mostly with recent lacklustre titles such as Bionic Commando, Wanted: Weapons of Fate and Terminator: Salvation, the studio also worked on the solid action series Ghost Recon and the racing game Ballistics.

Smash Cars crashes on to the PSN next week

TikGames and Creat Studios, the nice people who brought you games like Cuboid and Magic Ball, have another PSN title ready to launch; Smash Cars is coming to the network on 20th August.

Naturally, since this is a follow-up of the original Smash Cars title launched back in 2003, this is a ‘no rules’ RC car racing game, and promises to be a lot of fun.

Rage trailer shows driving, mutants, awesomeness

With all the furore about frame-rates, the benefit of BD textures and other technical issues, we’ve kind of lost sight of what id’s Rage is actually all about. Mutants – and the mass killing of them.

Check out the below footage from a new trailer of Rage showcased at the currently underway QuakeCon.

Warning: bring spare pants.

Fairytale Fights gains two new characters; Jack and the Naked Emperor

Fairytale Fights, the highly anticipated hack n’ slash game that pits our favorite childhood fairytale characters against each other, will have two additional characters joining Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White in the battle against evil.

You’ll have a new opinion of Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk and the Naked Emperor from The Emperors New Clothes after you watch the latest trailer featuring these cute death bringers. I mean come on, look at all that blood!

European PS Store Update For 13th August – We Got Add-on Fever

It’s been a while since we have seen so many freakin’ add-ons in a PlayStation Store update. It’s like EA went on another mindless money grubbing add-on blitz. Oh wait, they did. But this time Madden NFL 10 is the culprit.

But all is not nonsense, Marvel vs Capcom 2 is finally on the PlayStation Network and the demo made it too. So did Droplitz (the game) and Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (the demo).

Uncharted 2 getting no single player demo

Uncharted 2 getting no single player demo

Those of you hoping for a free demo of the single player mode in Uncharted 2 will be a little disappointed as Naughty Dog has out ruled that possibility.

Not to worry though, because gamers will get the chance to play a multiplayer demo online which is probably just as good, if not better than a single player one.

Yes, Man! Danny Wallace is in Assassin’s Creed 2

Assassin’s Creed 2 is lining up to be one of the biggest PS3 releases ever, which means anyone associated with the title is bound to either be a big name or become one quite soon.

Today, it has been announced that none other than Danny Wallace is playing the part of Shaun Cummings in the swords and sandals sequel. And if there’s one guy we love at PS3 Attitude, it’s Mr. Wallace.

Sony’s Gamescom conference to last just over an hour, not three

Sony’s Gamescom conference to last just over an hour, not three

Confirming to VG247, SCEE have clarified the recent mammoth time slot quoted for Sony’s conference next week at Gamescom noting that the actual presentation will last “just over an hour” with the added time required “for people to sit down.” Obviously Sony will be hiding the chairs around Cologne if it takes two whole hours to find your seat.

Or maybe they’re anticipating some really drunk people. Actually, we’ll be at Gamescom – maybe they’ve got wind that we were coming?

Aliens Vs Predator drops complex class system

Aliens Vs Predator drops complex class system

When you think of Aliens and Predators facing off against one another — undoubtedly with some Colonial Marines frantically dying in the middle — you probably think of three obvious groups: Aliens, Predators and Dead Guys.

However, with the influx of complex class systems in the likes of Killzone 2 and the Call of Duty games, more and more people are expecting weird and wonderful roles for their characters when they jump online.

Would a Colonial Marine medic for example be proficient in the skill of face-hugger removal? And what of Predator snipers? Would they come fitted with a specialised shoulder-mounted laser-turret?

Confirming in an interview with GameSpot, developer Rebellion have announced that they see the three main factions within their upcoming game as “a beautiful purity” and will not be over-complicating things further with an intricate class system.

Assassin’s Creed II – Developer Diary – Power to the People

The creators of Assassin’s Creed II have returned to the diary room to discuss the back-story of the stealth-fest and introduce three new factions as part of Ezio’s surrogate family.

Shunned by the very people who once supported and loved him in his old life, Ezio must now rely on the underbelly of Venice and cavort with thieves, courtesans and mercenaries if he is to achieve his ultimate goal and get vengeance.

PS3 stock drys up in the U.K. – retailers expect Slim soon

PS3 stock drys up in the U.K. – retailers expect Slim soon

Reported over at MCV (and pretty much all across the interweb), U.K. retailers are claiming that, according to Sony, they should not expect any new PS3 stock until later this month or possibly September.

The news comes during a period of immense speculation of an impending announcement from Sony with such stock strangling measures occurring in the past, usually when a new SKU is about to launch on the market in conjunction with a sales-injecting price-cut.

With Sony expected to announce the PS3 Slim at Gamescom next week, mark this one down as yet another red flag in the “PS3 Slim Lives!” phenomenon.

Behold Borderlands’ awesome boxart

Though the majority of us make our game purchasing decisions based on brand loyalty, past experience with a developer’s previous games or, God forbid, what some over-worked journalist in a magazine says, there is another cadre of people out there who simply walk into a store, clap eyes on a pretty picture and promptly throw down some money at a disgruntled game shop employee.

If Gearbox are targeting that third group, we feel Borderlands’ sales are going to be through the roof.

If the cover art gets past the censors first of course.

Uncharted now a Greatest Hit

We’ve no idea why it’s taken so damn long, but it appears our American readers will finally be able to get their hands on something us Europeans have enjoyed for months now.

Drake’s inaugural adventure, the seminal and beloved Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, will enter the annals of the Greatest Hits on August 16th and be available to purchase at a fraction of its normal price.

That fraction being a little more than half.

Enhanced trophy online integration coming to NA PlayStation site

Remember when we told you that the EU PlayStation website was getting a trophy overhaul that would allow users to compare their trophies with their friends complete with a leaderboard and all? Well, it looks like the same feature will be making its way overseas to NA users as well.

Not only will the online version of our trophies be enhanced but the absolutely horrible Portable IDs will be getting an upgrade as well. Finally, it looks like they will actually be worth posting to websites, forums, and social networks.

Could Need For Speed Shift spoil GT5′s party?

Could Need For Speed Shift spoil GT5′s party?

Need for Speed Shift is the latest in the long-running franchise from EA. And whilst various versions of the game haven’t always hit the right spot, the new edition certainly seems to be rustling a few feathers.

Whilst much of the marketing for this game thus far has centred around the real-life drivers that helped shape the game, we now get to see some actual screenshots.

And we think GT5 might be feeling a little nervous…
