SEGA have been taking a lot of heat recently from the Aliens vs. Predator community when it was announced on the forums that console patches would no longer be coming to the game, despite the PC having received five already. We now have an official response from SEGA of America.
ModNation Racers is one of our most loved titles this year, as is in fact amongst DolphGB’s top PS3 games.
But one of the problems that most owners of the title complain about is the huge loading times that can be a big turn off between the adrenaline pumping action.
Do you have some money that you’re simply desperate to spend? Well you have come to the right place as we have another Deals of the Week article to recommend what games you should buy.
Tiesto, one of electronic music’s most popular and successful DJs, will be making his video game debut in DJ Hero 2 this October.
Looking back, Tiesto has quite the track record. The scratching legend has worked with the likes of Muse, Justin Timberlake, Flo Rida, Sean Kingston and Three 6 Mafia and has spawned dozens of albums in the process.

Hulu Plus for the PlayStation 3 has landed here in the States… or at least a preview version of it has.
In doing so, it has set out to bring a ‘premium’ version of the standard Hulu service you can currently get on your PC’s called ‘Hulu Plus’ – or at least, premium, is what they’d have you believe.
Regardless, going up against the juggernaut that is Netflix when it comes to instant streaming is no easy task, and we recently got some hands-on time with this new service.
So how does Hulu fair?
Can you sense the frustration in our quotations?
It wasn’t long ago that we were complaining about the lack of real map packs to be released for Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
Now, DICE has given us reason to call in the whaaaaamblulance yet again.
Remember Explodemon!? The game is finally set to release at the end of this year (hopefully).
SOCOM 4 has been hyped up as one of Move’s biggest supported games for this year, but we now have some sad news.
Zipper has confirmed on their blog that the game will not make it before the year ends.
We may still be waiting for a disc-free solution to Netflix on the PS3, but news has come that the current software has received an upgrade.
The PlayStation 3 is the first console to now support search on the service, making it far easier to find the movie or TV show you want amongst the 10,000+ content available.
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?
Next month Gamescom, the European gaming convention, returns to Cologne in Germany and all major publishers are expected to be there.
Sony has today announced the date and time for their conference there that could see a few exciting announcements.
It’s another week of minimal content on the European PlayStation Store. However we do see the return of Earthworm Jim in HD which has to be the highlight for us. It’s also great to see a couple of classics in the form of Rayman 2 and Pong!
Although we’ll probably pass on pong despite how iconic it is, Rayman 2 for £3.99/€4.99 is certainly a good buy and will bring back great memories for some.
Naughty Dog continue to pump updates into one of Attitude Towers’ favourite games.
Today title update v1.09 goes live at 10:00 am PDT and as usual we have the low-down on what’s new. You won’t be surprised to hear the update focuses on the multiplayer element.
Gameloft’s remake of Earthworm Jim – that 16-bit era classic, originally released on Sega MegaDrive/Genesis – is making its way to the EU PlayStation Store today. Giving us all the opportunity to revisit the game’s original levels now in crisp HD.
It seems like just last week that Zipper brought us a cool update… oh wait, it was. Regardless, they’re bringing another and it’s even bigger than the previous.
So what’s in this update and when does it go live?
It’s time for the North American PlayStation Store update again, and unlike last week, this one is packing some content… assuming you like PSone classics or are a PlayStation Plus Subscriber.
If you answered yes to PlayStation Plus, you’ll be very interested to see that there are three new free games that have been added to PlayStation Plus lineup – Critter Crunch, Syphon Filter and Kahoots.
Or if you’re one of the gamers that have been trolling the PlayStation Blog comments section demanding more PSone classics, you’ll be thrilled to see an unprecedented four new titles – Toy Story Racer, A Bugs Life, Hercules and The Emperor’s New Groove.
That’s a whole lot of Disney…
The Californian rock back, Linkin Park, will be headlining the soundtrack for the new Medal of Honor game with ‘The Catalyst’, the lead song from their upcoming album called A Thousand Suns.
Linkin Park’s Joe Hahn has also directed his own teaser trailer for the game. It has ‘The Catalyst’ playing over live in-game footage that features the Tier 1 crew in action. The montage is broken up with bold statements warning of “merciless” enemies and “escalation”. It’s all very bombastic.
Fancy PlayStation branded underwear? PlayStation shoes? Or how about PlayStation deodorant? Well that just might be possible as Sony has announced that they are expanding the official license program to non-console items.
Rights to the iconic logo and the triangle, circle, cross and square combination will be distributed to other manufacturer products in a move that is likely designed to bring more brand awareness.
