Sure, Final Fantasy XIII just came out in Japan, but that won’t stop everyone from being excited about the PSN release of Final Fantasy VIII.
Can you believe that it has been 10 years since the game was originally released? Music from Final Fantasy VIII is still loved by fans and played in concerts around the world to this day. Truly a memorable game with a kick ass intro that will give you chills.
The Guitar Hero: Van Halen demo has finally made it onto the PSN after being teased a couple of weeks ago. There are actually six demos to try out this week with Gran Turismo 5 Time Trial Challenge being the highlight.
There’s more than just demos. Puzzlegeddon is the lone PSN game this week, and is joined by a plethora of DLC for Rock Band, Guitar Hero, and even Socom: Confrontation. Enjoy!
Final Fantasy VIII is now available in North America and will be out in Europe very soon. sw00t!!
While American’s will get the Ultimate Edition, it’s Europeans who will be getting the God of War: Ultimate Trilogy Edition.
Announced on the PlayStation.Blog, God of War fans will be able to get their hands on the same replica of Pandora’s Box, only this time with a few extra goodies…
Yes alright we haven’t done one of these for a long time, but it is back with a great deal of new content to talk about for PlayStation Home!
Arguably the biggest addition to the platform this week which comes at quite a surprise is a brand new futuristic public space called Sodium One.
Demos, games, price reductions, special offers, and more! There is quite a bit of content this week with games like Blue Toad Murder Murder Files and Braid now available on the PSN. The majority of PSP minis are now playable on the PS3 as well.
In terms of DLC, you know what to expect. New songs for Rock Band and Guitar Hero are a given, but there’s also the free Singstar media viewer and content for Brutal Legend too! Rock on!
Oh, and GT Academy 2010 Time Trial Challenge. Need we say more?
It’s almost a personal crusade at this point but, after numerous delays and promises, Vagrant Story will finally hit the EU PSN on December 22nd (next Tuesday).
We’ve already spoken about why it’s a classic, but if you don’t trust us, trust the Japanese. They gave it 40/40 in Famitsu.
No seriously. A developer is releasing a personal space in PlayStation Home on the 7th of January that is based around a London pub.
VEEMEE who are behind this unique space explain that it will be releasing in Europe for €4.99 and include some interesting features.
Sony has announced a brand new application to soon be available on the PlayStation Store in Europe.
SingStar Viewer is a downloadable feature that will allow you to purchase music from the SingStore, and watch, rate or review video clips, photos and profiles from the community.
Announced on their community forum, Volition are enticing all you Mars lovers back to the red planet with the promise of filthy lucre.
Or a shed-load of XP points. It’s one or the other.
Happy Birthday Mega Man! Today is the official 22nd birthday of the little Blue Bomber and Capcom celebrated it with a live broadcast with Inafune-san, the creator of Mega Man.
In addition, we have the debut trailer for Mega Man 10. It’s in Japanese but that doesn’t make it any less awesome…
Confirming what we already knew by looking at the box, EA’s Medal of Honor restart will be the first M-rated game of the long and respected series.
Of course this isn’t the only monumental shift the game will be experiencing.
It’s no secret what EA are trying to achieve with rebooting the Medal of Honor franchise and setting it during a modern conflict. You only have to look at the sales of Activision’s Modern Warfare 2 to realise that there is an extreme appetite among gamers right now for more shooters of this type.
The application for the PC version of the Final Fantasy XIV beta is now available. PS3 owners are left out at this time, but it does look like there will be a beta sign up eventually.
It’s that time of the week again. The Super Street Fighter IV blog has been updated and this time we are given an in-depth look at Adon.
In case you haven’t gotten your fill of sneaking around and assassinating figure heads or you simply want to explore more of 15th century Italy, Assassin’s Creed II will be getting it’s first batch of DLC early next year.
Remember those sequences of Ezio’s DNA that were deemed corrupt? Well it turns out that someone or something has fixed them as these two DLC packages will fill the missing gaps.
Proof that you just can’t keep a good dog down, IGN have posted up a new trailer for Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days.
It’s remarkably gritty stuff with shaky-cam gun battle footage interspersed with Lynch taking a leak. Seriously, you see him drain the lizard.
IGN named Shatter the Best PSN Game of 2009 and to celebrate Sidhe is running a holiday special where you can pick of the official soundtrack for only $1.
We’ll also be giving away a digital copy of the soundtrack right here so read on to win…
Further proof that Bethesda are positioning themselves as a strong publisher as well as developer of games, news hit the trades yesterday that id Software’s upcoming shooter RAGE will now be published by the ZeniMax company, ousting original publisher EA in the process.
The second downloadable scenario for Resident Evil 5 has finally been revealed. We hope you like Jill Sandwiches.
We don’t know what to think of The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest.
Sure, it’s been a while since our last Middle Earth gaming fix, but somehow we think this game isn’t marketed toward your average orc-slaying Númenórean.
There is now footage of the game. It kinda needs to be seen to be believed.
