North American PS Store Update For December 10th – PixelJunk’s Nude Inferno

PixelJunk Shooter, Dante’s Inferno, and nudity, what more could you possibly ask for? Well, beat ‘em up fans will be pleased to know that Revenge of the Wounded Dragons is now available to download. If you enjoy crossing dangerous streets with frogs, then you’re in for a treat as well. Frogger Returns! Yup, he’s back, but is he better than ever? We’ll know soon enough.

If you were looking forward to the Guitar Hero: Van Halen demo, you’re out of luck yet again. It’s not out this week either. The Saboteur nudity DLC is out though and we know you’ve been waiting for that one.

If that’s not enough for you, there’s Bomberman Party Edition, two more game demos, and a crapload of DLC for High Velocity Bowling, KOFXII, Rock Band, Guitar Hero and more. Don’t forget to pick up your free Gigawatt Blades.

It has been a long time since the last level packs were released for LittleBigPlanet. The Metal Gear Solid add-on was a huge success and after flicking through LBP’s trophies on PSN, we now know that more are on the way, and it sounds like they will be treat.

Fancy a Pirates of the Caribbean level pack? Well that’s what appears to be on the way and it will feature water!

Unfortunately there will be no live stream like Symphonic Fantasies, but that doesn’t get rid of the awesome.

This concert promises new renditions of the songs we all know and love and even music from Final Fantasy XIV will be played. Excited?

X-Factor to get the PlayStation treatment?

Love it or loathe it, you can’t get away from The X-Factor in the UK. The big “singing” contest in Britian is watched by millions each week with the series finale coming this weekend.

But it turns out Simon Cowell is not satisifed with this huge success and he is focusing more of his attention on the gaming industry.

European PS Store Update For 10th December – PixelJunkies get their Call of Duty

Pew! pew! pew! PixelJunk Shooter has finally arrived! For some odd reason, there is no demo, but we can assure you that you’ll like the game since it’s just that good. There actually aren’t any demos at all aside from Fairytale Fights, but there are three other games to purchase and one of them happens to be Call of Duty Classic. Yay!

Unfortunately there are no PSone Classics this time around, so if you were looking forward to Rugrats or Peter Pan 2, you’re out of luck. For the PSP owners out there, you’ll be happy to know that Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, Portable Ops+, and the MGS Digital Graphic Novel are now on the PSN.

3D Dot Game Heroes DLC planned

We’ve dutifully focused our beady eyes on the charming 3D Dot Games Heroes of late and we hope it hasn’t gone amiss on your part.

Already out in Japan and confirmed by publisher Atlus for a release in NA sometime next year, the Zelda referencing RPG has got a lot of people excited due to its intriguing art style and reverence toward old-school gaming flair.

Even better, the game will support DLC, with Japan about to get the first of what we can assume will be many packs on December 25th.

505 Games to unleash Naughty Bear on greater bear population

How does a studio follow up a hot chick with a penchant for katanas, sub-machine guns and body art? With a homicidal teddy bear hell-bent on mass-murder of course.

Coming from WET developer Artificial Mind and Movement, Naughty Bear features a stuffed protagonist with one thing on his mind: the destruction of other bears who failed to invite him to a party.

Transformers: The War for Cybertron announced; no Bay in sight

Woah, put the hammer down! High Moon Studios’ new Transformers game “Transformers: The War for Cybertron” will have no connection to the recent Michael Bay re-imagining of Hasbro’s insanely popular robot franchise.

Published by Activision and from the studio who created The Bourne Conspiracy, the new game has everyone’s favourite mechanised protectors and overlords take on their more traditional appearances compared to Dreamwork’s more busier renditions.

Dante’s Inferno ‘the Animatrix edition’ arrives in 2010

Dante’s Inferno will be getting the ‘reverse movie tie-in’ treatment in February 2010 with the release of Dante’s Inferno: The Animated Movie.

Following the critical success of Dead Space: Downfall, also released by Film Roman in association with EA, this DVD and Blu-ray movie release already reminds us of another project from back in 2003.

And trust us, that is no bad thing.

The Saboteur shines on PS3 with new anti-aliasing technique

The Saboteur shines on PS3 with new anti-aliasing technique

Pixel-counters, graphic junkies – call them what you will. Regardless of your stance on the practice, no one can discount the phenomenon – which has only intensified during this generation of gaming – that showcases people’s obsessive desire to dissect multiplatform games and hail one the victor over the other.

We here at PS3 Attitude usually care very little for these graphical comparisons. For the most part, the games are actually indistinguishable to the human eye and we’d rather focus on the game itself rather than one version having an almost invisible jaggy while the other does not.

That said, we’re also suckers for innovation, so Eurogamer’s recent Digital Foundry article where the PS3 version of The Saboteur is shown to present a whole new graphical technical in the battle against the ever-niggling bugbear of anti-aliasing is more than welcome.

The update takes the form of two main sections. Firstly, the previously mentioned new Special Forces teams (Dutch KCT and the Italian COMSUBIN) are included free of change along with new primary weapons for all squads.
