So Uncharted 2 is undoubtedly Sony’s biggest exclusive this year, and perhaps so far in the PS3’s life cycle, but how are Sony going to tell the UK all about it?
Well they are launching a massive marketing campaign that may not be too far away from resembling the scale seen with the Halo series.
Ryu Hayabusa is a man of few words. There’s no need because it’s his sword that does the talking, and you better not cross him or you’ll find yourself at the sharp end of it.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is more than just a simple port of the Xbox 360 version.
Containing more chapters, more playable characters, and a re-balancing of gameplay, not to mention beautiful graphics, the game has been deemed the definitive version by many.
What do you do when you have a license for a movie sequel released last year about a bunch of zoo animals in an unique and hugely significant part of the world?
You got it; make a game based on said zoo animals karting about! Simples!
It’s not like us to point out the obvious; we prefer to let our readers make up their own minds. But when it is as blatant as this, there has to be something bigger going on, surely?
We are, of course, speaking about the latest trailer for 3D Dot Game Heroes.
The two big PS3 exclusive titles coming out this year are having some PlayStation Home love, with both getting a dedicated public space.
The Uncharted 2 space is set in Nepal, complete with views of surrounding temples and mini-games.
The latest developer diary from Dante’s Inferno explores the fifth circle of Hell or Anger. Here, Dante will unleash all his fury and might against the hordes of the underworld using Death’s trusty scythe and his holy cross. Nothing beats slaying demons in the name of the Lord.
Tekken 6 has gone gold and Namco has provided some more details about the game.

Version 2.10 of flOw has just been released for your downloading pleasure. It’s time to start hunting trophies!
Earlier today we told you some of the amazing statistics that the Unchated 2: Among Thieves multiplayer demo has accomplished. Well, those statistics are about to get a huge increase over the course of the weekend because Sony and Naughty Dog are going to be giving away 30 Fortune Hunter Editions in the next three days.
Fairytale Fights is nearing it’s October 23rd and 27th release date for Europe and North America respectively, and what better way to prepare then a fancy new site update. Check out the redesigned FairytaleFights.com to find out everything there is to know about the game.
The Uncharted 2 demo has been out for over a week now, and so far it has been extremely successful as millions of you have downloaded it.
Sony are so impressed that they have decided to brag about the success of the demo with a list of statistics.
The music in LittleBigPlanet is a great asset to the game because it helps to set the mood to each level.
That’s why Media Molecule are releasing today their first music pack that adds three new songs to the soundtrack.
This weeks video content update features Michael Cera and Jack Black in their simply average comedy, Year One. In addition to the unrated version of the film, there’s a shaman featurette available in case you didn’t get enough of Michael Cera playing the same role he has in everything else.
In addition to films like Battle for Terra and My Life in Ruins are trailers for Legion and Did You Hear About the Morgans. It’s no wonder Year One is the highlight of this update…
Relentless Software are known mostly for the success of their Buzz! franchise, so when they announced a new IP at Develop 09 in Brighton we were intrigued to find out more.

Paul Woodbridge, Design Director at Relentless, took some time out of his busy schedule to answer our questions.
Nature is gross, but Critter Crunch is cute even when there’s upchucking involved. One look at that fat and furry gerbil/toad crossover and you’ll be sold too. Or not, we hear you. Critter Crunch may not be for everybody, but it tickles our collective fancies.
We’ll skip over this week’s selection of a PSOne ‘Classic’, and get right to the add-on content.
Add $10 (excuse us, $9.98) to your DiRT 2 bill and get everything in the game unlocked. Get musical with LittleBigPlanet, RPG your way of a paper bag with Fallout 3’s new add-ons or pay for the privilege of pretend golfing in the Riviera Golf Course in Tiger Woods PGA Tour.
We won’t shy away from the fact that we have been waiting to get our Europoean old-school on with Digger HD. We won’t shy away from the fact that labeling A Bug’s Life as a PSOne Classic is just plain wrong. Who camped out for a midnight release of A Bug’s Life? No really, stand up so we can beat you with a pointy stick.
Ahem, where were we? Oh yes. Digger HD is live in the EU! If you were alive enough back then (and still have your memories), why not relive the good old days with this updated and upgraded PSN remake?
You already know this, but here we go again. The Bayonetta demo is live on the Japanese PlayStation Store. We recommend you give Devil May Get PMS the good old college try; or at least watch this video of us destroying the demo.
If you feel a little lost, there’s also a Bayonetta video that you can watch to get a better sense of the story; even if you end up being more confused about it.
Welcome to this week’s Homerun that will cover the new PlayStation Home content updates including what we think of them.
