European PS Store Update For 15th April – Mike Haggar Approves

This is a great week for the PSN. Lots of fantastic content to purchase and there’s even a permanent price reduction on Trine. Get it! On Friday the Episodes from Liberty City will be available to download. Just one more day…

Finally there is a PSone Classic that does the name justice. Please welcome Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee to the PlayStation Network! Yay!

Fan of beat ‘em ups? Good, because now you and a buddy can piledrive your way through endless waves of thugs in Final Fight: Double Impact. If that’s not your thing, don’t worry. Section 8 is also available. Just don’t tell Haggar.

There’s also a demo for Skate 3 and Sam and Max, tons of DLC, avatars for EyePet, the second episode of FirstPlay, and a new set of Dynamic Themes. This is a very good week!

America has higher ratio of PS3s connected to the ‘net than the Xbox360 and Wii

America has a higher ratio of PS3s hooked up to the internet than the Xbox 360 and the Wii. A recent survey from The Diffusion Group found that 78% of PS3 owners are online. The Xbox 360 had less with 74% while the Wii scored a pitiful 54%.

Our main concern is that 22% of PS3 owners are missing out on some of the PS3′s best features.

Final Fight: Double Impact – The PS3 Attitude Review

Final Fight: Double Impact features two classic arcade games, Final Fight and Magic Sword. Unlike the recent release of TMNT: Turtles in Time, this is not a remake. These are the same exact games that stole your quarters back in the day but with more features, mainly an online multiplayer mode.

Can gameplay that has been left untouched for 20 years still manage to captivate gamers or are these games just too archaic to be enjoyed?

The end of 2010 may feel like a long way away, but it is good to look to the future.

Sony has now announced that a “major” update to PlayTV is due at the end of 2010, adding some new features, all but one of which they are keeping tight-lipped about.

GAME adds a DLC warning to pre-owned games

We suppose it was only a matter of time before this happened – GAME are now adding warnings to pre-owned games about the lack of advertised DLC content.

This step is needed to avoid legal action from angry customers.

Zipper lets you see MAG from a whole new angle

Regular readers of PS3 Attitude will know how highly we rate MAG – so much so that we dedicated two reviews and several weeks of play testing to it.

The game seems to have inspired that level of drive in quite a few people now, and these hardcore followers are desperate to have any sort of edge on their opponent.

Well happy days, because Zipper has a hi-res present for you.

Veteran staff exodus at Infinity Ward

Betrayal, accusations, hirings and firings. No, this isn’t a plot for the latest soap opera, it’s what’s been happening over at Infinity Ward and Activision lately.

It seems some staff have had enough, and since West and Zampella’s exit several other key Infinity Ward staff have packed their bags – taking with them almost thirty years experience.

Hmm…we wonder where they might be heading.

Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo – the motion sensing marketing war

Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo – the motion sensing marketing war

The upcoming release of PS Move and Natal, the motion sensing devices from Sony and Microsoft, has marked an interesting change in the way these two gaming institutions promote their consoles. It’s a shift because it’s the first time peripherals have taken centre stage for either company. Sony and Microsoft have traditionally taken a very conservative approach to console development, believing superior graphics to be the holy grail. When it comes to input devices both have been happy to stick with the trusted joypad.

Dead Rising 1 was “too Japanese” – Capcom

There was a time when Western gamers used to lap up everything Japan had to offer – we couldn’t get enough of it. These days, it appears to be the case that being “too Japanese “can be a bad thing.

Not our thoughts, but the thoughts of Capcom producer Shinasuka Hohara who cites the failure to appeal to Western audiences as being the main reason why the first Dead Rising game underperformed. Are we really losing interest in Japan?

Has the SubController been renamed?

Has the SubController been renamed?

We like the name ‘Move’. It has purpose, and a meaning. Unfortunately the Move’s attachment – the SubController – is a little less inspiring. In fact, it sounds downright boring which is definitely not what Sony is after.

Well it seems a new name is in order if the US PlayStation site is to believed.

Get ready – this name is going to blow your mind!
