Ubisoft announced today the newest addition to the Prince of Persia series with Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.
The game will follow the classic Sands of Times storyline and is scheduled for a May 2010 release.
It’s only Monday but we already have a round of PlayStation Home news to talk about – for Europe only.
Starting with the third of December, where the Presentation Podium will be re-opened to play host to Groove Armada, currently one of the world’s biggest bands.
Welcome to the first in a new series of articles here at PS3 Attitude.
Instead of being written by the awesome volunteers that help run PS3 Attitude, these reviews and stories have been created by various well-known public figures, world-renowned gamers and media personalities.
First up is a review of SingStar Motown, written by Ortis Deley, all round good egg and presenter on Channel Five’s ‘The Gadget Show’ in the UK.
Monday, November 30th celebrates the largest game update in LittleBigPlanet history.
Update 1.21, which has commonly been referred to as ‘Leerdammer’ will bring a slew of new features, the biggest of which is Online Create, all for the amazing price of free.
We recently had the pleasure of being interviewed for the Official PlayStation Magazine (UK) podcast, and we talk about what it takes to run PS3 Attitude and why we took the opportunity to make the venture a 100% charitable affair.
We’ve also discuss with OPM our future plans and how you can get involved in helping us expand and improve.
Sounds like you’re not the only ones in love with the PlayStation 3.
The U.S. Air Force will be ordering a total of 2200 PS3s very soon. But they aren’t buying them for a massive gaming party this Christmas.
It is that time of year again tomorrow for Americans as the United States celebrate the day after Thanksgiving with amazing deals across retailers.
And lucky for some, the PlayStation 3 is not the exception as Sony has presented the top deals being offered by the big stores on Black Friday.
Though a certain console’s name was mysteriously missing from the initial announcement by publisher Southpeak, it has been confirmed that Two Worlds II will be released on the PS3 along side its PC, Mac and 360 counterparts next spring.
An action fantasy RPG (think Dragon Age: Origins but with less man/elf lovin’), Two Worlds II is the sequel to the popular Two Worlds PC/360 game from a couple of years ago. A PS3 version of the first game was also in the works but was ultimately canned. So, in other words, don’t count your medieval chickens just yet.
Tekken fans rejoice, the Tekken 6 online patch is finally here!
But does it fix the problems that plague online? For the most part, yes. We’ve played more than a dozen matches and we have some initial impressions to share.
It was just revealed yesterday that Adon, Cody, and Guy were joining the Super Street Fighter IV cast. IGN not only has tons of pictures of the new challengers, but they also have a trailer that showcases all six of the new characters!
Naughty Dog has announced that this Friday, players of Uncharted 2 will receieve a free patch for the game, and in the patch is a map!
They are setting off the first DLC in the form of “The Fort” map for free. This is said to be based upon the “Fortress” chapter in the first game.
In case you were tired of the already dozens of playable characters in Dragon Ball Z: Raging Blast, Namco Bandai plan on releasing customized DLC packs from now until April 2010.
These packs will be available to download for free and have already begun with the Warriors on Earth pack which is already available on the PSN and features Krillin, Yamcha, Tien and Chiaotzu.
We have more content coming out this week for PlayStation Home. The highlight of which is the addition of two new Red Bull spaces in both North America and Europe.
The Red Bull Air Race space has been a huge success in Home, but it came out nearly a year ago, and so something new is due.
Not long now Japan, and you’ll finally be getting your hands on Final Fantasy XIII.
In case you needed one final push, however, check out the last trailer for the JRPG before the title actually hits Japanese shelves in twelve days time.
As if SquareEnix even needed to advertise the game. It’s going to sell like hot-cakes and everyone knows it.
In what will likely become an unpopular move by many, Sony has changed their PlayStation Network Terms of Service with immediate effect and this will have consequences for some people.
In the past, many people have abused the allowance of activating a PSN account on up to five PS3 systems and chose to share their login details to other users so that they can get those games and other paid items for free.
Square Enix has today finally announced the release dates for the up and coming title Just Cause 2.
You may remember awhile ago we found out that the PlayStation 3 version would be receiving exclusive features such as video recording and YouTube uploading.
Guerrilla Games will be celebrating with champagne and cake on the 26th because they will be celebrating the fifth birthday of Killzone. Sure, the game was released on November 2nd in the US but the team is based in the Netherlands so they celebrate the European release. Time to bring out the candles!
In celebration, Guerrilla Games wants to invite fans to the party. Here are some of the activities they have planned:
Never ones to shy away from new technology, or probably because we’re suckers for trying new things and watching as they combust around our ears in the process, today marked the inaugural PS3 Attitude Twitter interview.
Or “Twitterview” – if you’re down with that whole brevity thing.
The subject of our maiden experiment in social tomfoolery was one Dylan Cuthbert, producer extraordinaire of Kyoto based Q-Games and all round great guy for signing up to be our guinea pig.
“I see gamers as the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. Damn it, an entire generation playing rubbish film tie-ins and redneck shallow shooters on cheap consoles riddled with design faults…
What are we going to do about it?”
