This weeks PSN video content update features People’s Sexiest Man Alive Hugh Jackman as the claw touting mutant Wolverine, along with a few other less notable X-Men characters.
Not only is the film up on the store, but two featurettes and a bonus documentary are there for downloading as well. We do wonder why the film only appears in standard definition and not HD.
Bioshock was a very successful title when it first launched for the Xbox 360 and PC. But by the time it finally arrived on the PS3 with a cheap price, many people had lost a lot of interest in the product.
A lot of gamers who really wanted to play the game had already done so, and newer, better games were releasing at the same time as the PS3 version.
We’re not quite sure of the logic behind developing two games that share a great deal in common but having one exclusive for the PS3 and the other for the 360. We guess SquareEnix have their reasons.
Nier RepliCant (the PS3 outing) has a slightly more effeminate protagonist and, instead of trying to save a daughter, the PS3 version seems to switch in a sister in peril.
Demon’s Souls was released in Japan towards the beginning of the year and was met with great success, hailed as one of the best PS3 RPGs to date. Set in the fictional kingdom of Boletaria, you play as one of the ten classes of heroes as you set off to rid the kingdom of this mysterious black fog that has surrounded its outskirts.
Hidden within its depths are demons who feast on the souls of all who enter. Only the brave shall set out on this deadly quest to slay the demon lord, the Old One, and return peace to the kingdom. Be prepared as it is a tough journey ahead…
Fans of the PixelJunk games will be pleased to know that the series will be hitting PlayStation Home users in Japan soon.
What will the new Home space have to offer and when does it come out?
Are you one of those gamers that likes to get your ‘munch’ on while playing your PS3? If so, Sony now has you covered… assuming you like pizza.
The Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 demo is out in Japan and we have gameplay videos showcasing all the modes available to play.
With improved controls, new abilities, additional characters, and new gameplay modes, how does the game hold up?
Is NGS2 worth the wait?
If you’re already participating in the MAG beta you may already be aware of a couple of things.
Firstly, the servers are currently buckling due to the influx of Qore subscribers, new beta code lottery winners and other assorted people coming online and hammering the hardware.
Another thing you probably recall is how, after finally getting your grubby hands on a beta code, the actual download weighed in at an almighty 3GB. Well, according to the all-knowing “Shijima”, this download size could actually double during the beta period to a jaw-dropping 6 GiggleBytes.
US_PSNSad but true. Us gun toting, Whopper eating folk are still Trine-less. Maple syrup chugging, poutine eating folk hadthe same fate. So we would like to ask: where the (radio edit) is Trine? Not in NA,that’s for sure.
The options? Switch your ball or Interpol. Embrace your inner Sporty Spice and give FIFA and NBA 10 the good college try, or go down memory lane with two more PSone Classics.
We can’t believe it’s time to say TGIT. Hmm, that almost reads something cheeky. We won’t say what though, our mums could be reading this (love ya, send cookies and PSN vouchers).
Trine is the reason for the season, and that reason is pleasing. Pleasing all of us that have waited a long ( looooong) time for Trine. Well here it is ladies and gents; better get buying after all that moaning.
True to their post-apocalyptic word, Bethesda have narrowed down “the end of September” a little and have announced that the PS3 flavour of Fallout 3 DLC will commence with Broken Steel on September 24th.
This will be followed up with Operation Anchorage and The Pitt on October 1st with the final two add-ons, Point Lookout and the alien themed Mothership Zeta, completing the package on October 8th.
Well, we weren’t expecting this one: Uncharted 2 supports Twitter!
With this new feature in Uncharted 2, you can select the option for the game to automatically tweet your followers when you do certain activities…
There is no new content for PlayStation Home this week, and so we decided to do a Homerun special on our top five features we want to see in Sony’s online universe.
Just recently Infinity Ward allowed a small group of very privileged individuals to check out the multiplayer in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Unfortunately there apparently was some mix up with the invitations and we here at PS3 Attitude weren’t invited(end of sarcasm), but that’s not going to stop us from bringing you all the delicious details!
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz about topics such as Army of Two 40th Day and prototyping for Sony’s new Motion Controller, EA Montréal’s Alain Tascan responded favourably to the idea of the studio revisiting an old favourite — the much adored snowboarding franchise: SSX.
Commenting on the torrent of responses to a Valkyria Chronicles II (PSP) post over at the official blog where fervent fans of the original decided to hijack the thread and bark on about those missing Trophies once again, Sega’s Aaron Webber had something interesting to say about the now fabled Valkyria Chronicles update. And, guess what folks, it could happen.
The JPN PlayStation Store has updated, and the Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 demo is now available to download!
Speaking to 1UP, Capcom’s Jun Takeuchi (Resi Evil 5/Lost Planet) has gone on the record for the whole of the Japanese development community* and stated that Sony’s introduction of a Motion Controller (due next spring) will signal the start of possible Wii to PS3 ports.
Which has got us thinking. Just how many current Wii games would we even want on the PS3? Our conclusion? Not many.
On September 11, SCEA filled a trademark for “TV Superstars.” The title includes “computer game and video game software” for “operating a real-time game for others over global and local area computer networks.”
So what exactly does this mean?
