Sledgehammer Games’ website & jobs page hint at new AAA title

Pulling off what many saw as a spectacular double-punch coup with the capture of industry mavens Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey from EA, speculation was rife regarding what “existing properties” Activision’s new studio, Sledgehammer Games, would turn their hand to.

Though not concrete confirmation toward the identity of the mysterious franchise, Sledgehammer’s new website and job listings do go a long way in providing something of an insight as to what it might be.

You are one in a billion; EA CEO touts global gaming audience

How far our passion has come.

Once the playground of kids and the socially inept, the gaming industry continues to expand and mature – enticing new demographics into its fold at an almost alarming rate.

Speaking to the Nightly Business Report, EA CEO John Riccitiello, though admittedly factoring in pretty much every single facet of the gaming spectrum known to man, claims that there are now one billion people gaming worldwide.

PixelJunk Shooter – The PS3 Attitude Review

PixelJunk titles have become synonymous with ‘quality and eccentricity’.

This time your mission is to fly a spacecraft into a series of challenging cave and canyons blasting enemies and solving puzzles along the way. Armed to the teeth with lasers and missiles, you can also find ways to use the indigenous lava and water to your destructive purpose.

The question on all our lips; is this the best PixelJunk game yet?

Patchwork: Modern Warfare 2 and Dragon Age: Origins receive updates

What did we do when games shipped as fixed, unalterable entities, warts and all? Oh yeah, we just got on with it (while usually exploiting every known glitch as much as possible.)

Two recent games that have gone down well with the masses have just received updates. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is now actually Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (1.06) while BioWare’s seminal fantasy RPG Dragon Age: Origins is now up to a mighty version 1.02.

Tony Hawk defends RIDE and attacks the reviewers

Arguably one of the biggest “flops” this year in terms of games is Tony Hawk: Ride.

Well Tony Hawk has now gone on the defensive for his game on his Twitter and attacks reviewers for being “snarky”…

Incoming! Firmware 3.15 “very soon”; brings Minis plus data transfer

It seems like only yesterday when we were updating to firmware 3.10 (well, for some of us, it actually was) but it looks like Sony have more *ahem* wares for us with James Thorpe popping up on the official EU blog with news of a 3.15 system update.

First things first: it’s optional.

Second things second: it adds the following to your PS3.

EA seek “Senior Online Level Designer for Dead Space”; draw your own conclusions

We’ve debated about it in the past, but it seems the perennial All Games Need Multiplayer hokum just won’t die. Next up to the online plate would appear to be the recently announced Dead Space 2.

Found lurking in the darkest corners of LinkedIn, EA have advertised an open position at Redwood City, CA – the location of Visceral Studios – for the new Dead Space game. The publisher are quoted as “Seeking a highly motivated Senior Online Level Designer for the Dead Space franchise on Xbox360 and PS3. This is a major opportunity to contribute creatively to an exciting new franchise.”

Sony patents show off Motion Controller abominations

We love patents.

Not only do they give us an early look into what a company may (or may not) be planning for us consumers in the near future, they’re also the source of some of the biggest WTF moments in gaming history.

Filing a whole slew of papers in relation to its upcoming Motion Controller, Sony have proffered a glimpse into a bizarre world of add-ons, interchangeable doohickeys, and some interesting possibilities when it comes to how they may proceed when it comes to using the new controller with other devices.

Recent Brink footage all PC; but runs on consoles “just as good.”

Recent Brink footage all PC; but runs on consoles “just as good.”

Splash Damage’s futuristic and dystopian FPS Brink has surfaced recently with new and exciting footage showing off the game’s unique SMART system.

Blending a free-running element akin to Mirror’s Edge with the usual ferocity associated with a First Person Shooter – as opposed to a First Person Runner – Brink is looking like a hot prospect for the end of next year.

Some eyebrows were raised, however, regarding just what hardware was actually running the current build on display in these aforementioned videos. Reported over at PS3 University – after confirmation from Splash Damage on their official forums – the footage shown is in fact from the PC version.

But don’t fret. The console versions will be on par. Apparently.

It’s the EU and NA Heavy Rain pack shots

It’s the EU and NA Heavy Rain pack shots

Europe and North American may be two countries divided by a common language, but it’s the differences in box art which is where the real fracture can be seen.

Case in point, check out the following box art for next year’s Heavy Rain.

Though both contain the key imagery associated with The Origami Killer, there are a few noticable differences between the covers – namely the lack of rain on one and the presence of newspaper clippings on the other.

And the fonts differ. Can’t forget about the font.

Which one do you prefer?
