Remember that story where SEGA stated there were “no plans” to localize Yakuza 3? According to a comment left on the PlayStation Blog, the story was apparently false.
SEGA gave out huge news today by confirming that the existence of the game being localized is actually very real.
Is SEGA just teasing the fans?
You may recall we mentioned the upcoming free Batman: Arkham Asylum DLC.
Well, Eidos have now dated the impending download along with releasing some scant details of what’s in store for us Bat lovers.
There’s no doubt that Japanese developers have been jumping into Microsoft’s deep pockets since the start of this generation of gaming.
However, many people have been baffled as to why a Japanese developer would release a game exclusively for a console that has a significantly lower user-base in Japan. And usually in the RPG genre, a genre Japanese gamers traditionally go bananas over.
A Japanese developer has now posted on his blog as to why so many developers from his native land are going first with Microsoft. And how PS3 fans are benefiting from it.
Despite being only available for two days of week-ending September 12th, Activision’s Guitar Hero 5 has usurped the U.K.’s top chart spot from long-standing champ Batman: Arkham Asylum.
The wait is finally over. Capcom has revealed that on the first day of the Tokyo Game Show, the PSN will be getting the Lost Planet 2 co-op demo.
To help soothe the burns from the delay, PS3 owners will get to experience two additional exclusive missions in the demo.
Free Realms was released to the PC last April to great success, reaching one million users just 18 days after its release and two million after a month. We were told that a PS3 version of the game was to come but we were never given a release date. We’ve waited patiently but alas nothing has come up…until now that is.
The first Assassin’s Creed was highly criticized for being repetivive. Gameplay consisted of traveling from town to town and gathering intel which ultimately led to a major assassination.
With Assassin’s Creed II, the gameplay has expanded to so much more than just assassinating victims with a variety of new missions to choose from…
Every year we see the battle of the football (soccer) games and after seeing the European demo for FIFA 10 last week, and with the American demo out on Thursday, it was a matter of time before Konami would respond.
It’s been almost exactly two years since Codemasters released the original ‘DiRT’ racing title. When it hit shelves back in 2007, it was very well received by most, and some even hailed it as the greatest rally-racing game money could buy.
Now, Codemasters have given us DiRT 2, which contains a larger bag of tricks and more polish on the outside, but can it live up to the overall success of its predecessor?
A lot has been said about firmware 3.0. People have been very vocal about things they like and things they don’t like.
Well we hope you all like the new PlayStation Store icons that have popped up on the XMB, as well as the ‘What’s New’ section, because according to a certain developer, it’s driving sales way up.
Which developer, and how far up?
The off-on-off-on relationship we have with Trine is a bit too familiar for some here at Attitude Towers.
First we fall in love with the concept, then it is out of favour when we learn what the cost of the game will be. We loathe the game for the delay imposed and love it once more when we get our hands on the demo.
So do we love it or hate it today?
We haven’t done one of these in a long time. The very first ‘Beat The Team’ column debuted about six months ago to highlight our very first Killzone 2 clan match. Back then we scored a perfect 7-0 score, securing our first clan win. Since that glorious evening we built a 2-2 Killzone 2 online record.
Now is the time for a PS3A Killzone comeback. A reboot of the clan if you will. Our first match of the new season was upon us, and the opposing clan was primed and ready to go. Will history repeat itself?
It was touted as one of Microsoft’s big exclusives and now that has ended with the news that one of Square Enix’s biggest games for this year will be making its way over enemy lines and onto the PlayStation 3.
EA has been quite successful with its own skateboarding franchise, aptly named Skate, with two games already under its belt. Today they developer announced that a third title will be released with a focus on the social and community aspects of the game.
Skate 3 allows players to create their own team of skateboarding fanatics and compete against each other in challenges, not to mention the typical career mode as well.

Anyone who lives in the United States might want to head out to their nearest Toys R’ Us, as they’re having a great deal on some of the PS3’s best selling titles.
Just how good is this deal?
News is trickling in here to the Attitude Nexus that the previously promised Firmware update 3.01 (aka “Sorry we broke Uncharted” fix) is now live in some regions.
Details are sketchy at the moment but it appears that the only thing different is the aforementioned game will no longer crash like a drunk monkey driven plane.
We predicted that this would happen, and we were right: WipEout HD is joining PAIN and coming to Blu-ray.
One of the best PlayStation Network games is finally making its way to Blu-ray disc next month and will be bundled with the equally delicious Fury pack.
The VidZone team have been busy in their offices responding to all the feedback that they have received from the gaming community, including some of our own wishes.
