One new game! Four new demos! Three free good ‘ole themes! Three dynamic themes and one of them free! Freezepop! George Takei!
Good one SCEE, you set us up the bomb for this update just right. You gave us an atrocious one last week, only to sweeten this one that much more.
Welcome back to another Homerun PlayStation fans!
This week we will be giving you more news and views on all the new content for PlayStation Home that has arrived and been announced for Europe and North America.
Old-school American football fans rejoice! Recently, EA Sports announced the ‘AFL Legacy Pack’ which is coming soon to Madden NFL 10.
You remember the AFL, right? The American Football League was an integral part in creating the game of football we have today, and helped give birth to the NFL we all currently know and love.
So what exactly does this pack entail?
Nowadays, NBA games are all about how realistic they can be with their graphics, league rules, and physics engines. What ever happened to the simpler times of NBA Jam?
Tecmo have heard our cries and they are busy developing NBA Unrivaled, a retro style basketball game modeled after the classic arcade genre.
Ah, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan. How we love the unique way in which their releases play out.
Even the hype is subtle, building gradually and gracefully until the whole community is set to fever pitch.
If you pay attention to any form of mass media, be it television, radio or the internet, you’ve probably seen or heard Sony’s new marketing campaign adverts. The feedback that we’ve seen has been almost all positive, and everyone seems to think the new ads are good. Except, of course, the Nigerian Government.
So what exactly has their feathers ruffled?
The unforgettable music from Square Enix will be performed in Germany on September 11th and 12th.
Video game composer Nobuo Uematsu will be in attendance, and now you can be too! The video game music tribute will be streamed for all fans live on September 12th for free.
“Symphonic Fantasies – Music From Square Enix”, just as the name implies, will not just cover music from Final Fantasy…
Subscribers to EA SPORTS new My Live Season service for FIFA 10 will be able to enjoy the most authentic and up to date football (soccer) game ever.
Pushing updates every Wednesday to those who sign up, the service tracks every injury, transfer and statistic to keep your virtual squad as close to real-life as possible.
Already going where no shameless movie tie-in has gone before on Xbox Live, PS3 Star Trek fans still have a while to wait before setting their virtual phasers on stun. At least we’ll be getting two exclusive new ship classes as part of the top-down shooter to enjoy.
Nothing is better than the pixelated goodness that is 3D Dot Game Heroes. Of course, having the ability to build your own creations only increases the awesomeness of the game ten fold. Not only will you be able to create your own hero, but you can also create the weapons he or she will be using to slay the evil monsters.
Award winning composer Garry Schyman, who has developed scores for games such as Bioshock and Destroy All Humans!, can add another to his ever growing list.
Announced by Visceral Games, Schyman will be in charge of capturing the music of Hell for Dante’s Inferno.
They just keep rolling them in! VidZone has secured another music video exclusive, this time in the form of the Editors’ new single ‘Papillon’.
The new music video will debut this Thursday at 15:00 BST and the single is from their new album; ‘In This Light And On This Evening’.
Reading the comments, we understand that a lot of you are a bit annoyed about the $3 price tags attached to the new dynamic themes for the PS3, and we agree with you.
Fans of Valkyria Chronicles unite! SEGA has announced that more DLC is on the way and that the latest additions are coming as a ‘thank you’ to the game’s fan base.
The users of the PlayStation Network have voiced their opinion and Sony has replied. Based on the feedback from Firmware 3.0, Sony has decided to put a Q&A up on the European PlayStation Blog.
What Firmware 3.0 functionality would you like to see made optional?
If you’ve been playing multiplayer games on the PS3 for very long, you may have noticed how game-invites have been changing over the years.
Well we’re pleased to see another change that’s coming very soon, starting with Codemasters’ new rally-racer, DiRT 2.
“So what’s the big change?”, we hear you ask…
Yesterday we heard the news that Japanese gamers will finally get their chance to play Final Fantasy XIII on the 17th of December this year.
Now, Square Enix has released a statement on the European release for the game…
We have news today on PS3 exclusive Agent after Rockstar confirmed that it is on track for a 2010 release.
Although little is known about the game, it’s being developed by Rockstar North, the people who brought one of the biggest game franchises to our screens; Grand Theft Auto.
Most of you are probably too busy playing the actual game to be watching the menu screen of Batman: Arkham Asylum. If you look closely towards the bottom of the screen though, you’ll see a news ticker.
Normally these aren’t too exciting/newsworthy, but free DLC is always awesome, especially for such a great game.
