Submitted by on Friday, 23 April 2010No Comment

dotw Deals of the Week   23rd April 2010Here we are with the latest edition of PS3 Attitude’s ‘Deals of the Week’. Every Friday we deliver our favourite PlayStation 3 game deals from across the Internet.

We’re also fair people here at Attitude Towers, so we have split this segment with two PS3 deals for the United Kingdom, and two for the United States.

It would be easy to simply show you what’s on offer, so we go one further by telling you why in our opinion you should not waste any time in clicking the ‘Buy Now’ link under every deal.

And don’t forget, if you find better PS3 deals elsewhere we want to read your discoveries in the comments!

United Kingdom

killzone 2 boxart Deals of the Week   23rd April 2010Killzone 2 – £14.73

Killzone 2 was the hit PS3 exclusive first-person shooter that released little over a year ago.

This game is full of epicness from the awesome graphics that at the time was the best we had seen on any console, to all the explosions and bullets that it packs in throughout the game.

With a Metacritic score of 91%, it is not a title that sits in the shadows and so if it isn’t on your game shelf yet, it is time to take the plunge.

Killzone 2 is a sequel to a game that if we’re honest received a mixed reception. But Sony kept faith in the franchise and the developers Guerrilla Games.

This time the fight against the Helghast is leaving the familiar territory of Earth as Humanity takes the battle to their home planet. You play as Sev who is handed his own big part in destroying the alien army and bringing peace back to the world.

For only £15 this game absolutely deserves your attention. If you need any more convincing, here were our final words in our review: Brutal, jaw-droppingly gorgeous and truly great to play, Killzone 2 is a complete must-have title for the PlayStation 3, so stop reading this and go buy it already!

dragon age box Deals of the Week   23rd April 2010Dragon Age: Origins – £14.98

Dragon Age: Origins was a game that appeared on many Christmas lists when it was released just before Christmas last year, and at such a low price you should definitely add it to your game collection today – Call it a late Easter present to yourself.

The game itself is very much your typical Bioware RPG fare. Expect a massive game world, oodles of character customisation and plenty of moral choices to make, which will affect the title’s ending.

While there is enough micro-management and upgrading of your character to satisfy even die-hard RPG fans, equally so the combat is real-time and in a similar vein to Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, so there is plenty of action to hold your interest too.

Bioware claimed at time of release that Dragon Age: Origins had the most content in any game they’d made since Baldur’s Gate 2. To this end they claim it will take 80 hours of gameplay to complete the title entirely, which means you are getting an awful lot of game for your £14.98.

It has dragons in it too. Everyone loves dragons!

United States

box eflc Deals of the Week   23rd April 2010Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City – $33.54

Many PS3 owners have been waiting a very long time for this. Episodes from Liberty City is a disc with two pieces of downloadable content released for GTA IV.

Although you can buy these from the PlayStation Store, by purchasing a hard copy you do not need GTA IV to play them – plus it features exclusive radio station Vice City FM!

Arguably a step-up from Grand Theft Auto IV, these episodes feature even more exciting missions and side-quests that keep you sitting in front of your TV.

For the first time we see checkpoints in missions so when you die, you no longer annoyingly have to start from the beginning again – finally! With two separate storylines, these episodes are more than just the same and include brand new weapons, cars, characters, music and other features that keep the game fresh.

Additionally the episodes are playing parallel to the GTA IV story so there are many crossovers, which is great as it helps to lift some of the stones left unturned from before.

Our review for the episodes will be published soon, but you can take it from us right now that if you enjoyed GTA IV, you shouldn’t turn your back from these.

uncharted box Deals of the Week   23rd April 2010Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune – $20.54

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune was released over two years ago now, back in the winter of 2007. At the time the PS3 library was really rather bereft of decent titles, and Uncharted was one of a few great games that kept loyalists going during those hard times.

Since then Sony has really turned things around thanks to the PS3s now massively higher install base.

The point in telling you all of this is that many of you may not have owned a PS3 ‘back in the day’, and therefore possibly missed out on Nate’s first outing. Even today the first Uncharted is still as fantastic as it was when it was first released and we cannot recommend it highly enough.

Drake’s Fortune has a fantastic island setting and is far more focussed on puzzles and exploration than its action packed follow-up. More climbing and less gun fights (although there are still plenty of those) make it feel more like a Tomb Raider game than Uncharted 2.

There is also more ‘quiet time’ to appreciate the beauty of the jungle setting and the brilliant soundtrack.

In conclusion buy this game. Buy it now. You won’t regret it.
