Final Fantasy XIV, the upcoming Final Fantasy MMO, is set to remain as a PS3 console exclusive. The people of Square Enix have never suggested that it would arrive on the Xbox 360, but there has been some doubts circulating around the ‘net that this could change. The Final Fantasy XIV online creator and developer, Hiromichi Tanaka, has moved to quash this speculation, explaining that the Xbox Live system is too “closed” for the game.
It’s over a decade on from Escape from Monkey Island, the last – and weakest – game in the series; aside from having a counter-intuitive interface, the game had an air of sterility which suggested Guybrush wasn’t meant for the 21th century. Thankfully Telltale Games disagreed, as Tales of Monkey Island marks a rumbustious return for series. It’s been out on the PC and WiiWare for over a year, and now PlayStation owners have a chance to enjoy its piratey goodness. But while it’s better than its predecessor, does it live up to the high points in the series?
Welcome to the final Deals of the Week for June 2010. Every Friday we will deliver the best deals for PlayStation 3 games that we have discovered across the World Wide Web, and this week is no different. Except that we’re a day late. Whoops!

We brought you news earlier this week that the proposed tax break for the UK video games industry was one of the many things to fall under the axe in the Coalition Governments emergency budget.
At the time we all accepted it as an unfortunate inevitability – but something a bit more sinister has started to surface across the Internet.
Was the tax break sabotaged?
This is quality that you could only expect from Studio Ghibli.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is unlike any Tomb Raider game you have ever played. Despite that, there is still a strong sense of familiarity that long time fans will enjoy.
Vanquish has already captured the attention of the gaming industry because 1) it’s being developed by Platinum Games, the studio behind the critically acclaimed Bayonetta, and 2) it’s under the direction of Shinji Mikami, the creative mind behind Resident Evil.
To say people have high hopes for Vanquish would probably be an understatement.
FirstPlay has been with us for a few months now and it’s really starting to get into its stride, with great content appearing every week. But what can you find in this week’s episode?
While John Daly probably isn’t as popular as Tiger Woods, the pro golfer has managed to rack up five PGA Tour wins including the PGA Championship in 1991 and the British Open in 1995. Come this fall, you’ll be able to play as John “The Lion” Daly in ProStrike Golf and show off your skills with the brand new PlayStation Move as well.
We went hands-on with the game along with the all-new Move controller at this year’s conference. How did our round of golf turn out and more importantly, how responsive was the motion controller?
Exciting news for Studio Ghibli fans, as it seems the Level-5′s Nintendo DS title – Ni no Kuni: The Another World – is coming to the PS3.
Can the extra power of the PS3 be put to good use?
Here’s a contest that doesn’t make much sense. All you have to do is win an online tournament in Super Street Fighter IV hosted by Delriach. Easy enough, right?

There’s a few downloadable titles. Secret of Monkey Island, Fret Nice, Sam & Max Episode 3, and more!

If you somehow missed out on PixelJunk Monsters, be sure to purchase this brilliant game while it’s on sale. You won’t regret it.
