Yakuza 3 localization possibility exists

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?

“360 Exclusivity helps us make better PS3 games” – Japanese developer

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.

Free Realms finally gets a PS3 release date…kinda

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.

Assassin’s Creed II Dev Diary #3: All roads lead to…

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…

DiRT 2 – The PS3 Attitude Review

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?

New Store Icons Pushing PSN Sales?

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?

Trine Hits PSN This Week

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?

Beat The Team; PS3 Attitude [PS3A] versus Kamikaze Kittens [K*K]

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?
