Hello again, Abe. We missed you.
Capcom have put out some pretty interesting and entertaining collector’s editions in the past and it looks like Dead Rising 2 will be no exception. We present to you the Dead Rising 2: Zombrex Edition …
We’ve been talking about Singularity here at the Attitude Towers for quite some time. Since its reveal early last year, it’s been through a roller coaster of hype and publicity. In 2009, it seemed Activision was very eager to show this game off to any and all that would pay attention, but it the past 6 months or so the game seemed to fall off the face of the Earth.
Now, with little warning, it has finally hit shelves.
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?
It’s not very often in the games industry that we hear about games being pushed forward. Games get delayed all the time, and it rarely comes a surprise to anyone. In fact, there are some games that are known for being delayed – we’re looking at you Gran Turismo.
Now, Square Enix is helping to break the mold.
Hulu Plus does not require PlayStation Plus as we discovered not too long ago, but to preview it early you do need Sony’s premium service.
Today the preview build for Hulu Plus is available to a select number of PlayStation Plus users at $9.99 a month.
There really isn’t much this week. The only downloadable game is DeathSpank and that doesn’t even have a demo for some reason. Similarly to the North American update, there is a multiplayer demo for Blur. The rest of the games are minis, a brand games that just recently sold 1 million copies. Congrats to all you small developers out there!
There is a surprising lack of DLC this week aside from the usual suspects. The highlight is the new level for Trine, which won’t cost you much at all. It should be noted that this was added to the PC version through a free update. A bit of a shame the same couldn’t be done on the PSN. Luckily for us, Trine is a great game and deserves your support.
Sony invented minis after the success of small cheap games on the Apple App Store.
Today they have announced that minis have been a big success with total sales across all titles of over one million.
Sony has unveiled a strong line-up for this year’s Eurogamer Expo, which is set to take place at Earls Court, London, from 1st to 3rd October.

PlayStation Home will soon see a new arcade title that borrows heavily from the massively popular ‘doodle’ titles you may have seen on you iDevice or Android phone.
We’ve known ever since E3 that Medal of Honor would be getting a limited edition for the PS3. Now, DICE has released a trailer about this alternate version of the game, but it’s not quite what we expected.
Like many of you, I read and kept up with the torrent of announcements at this year’s E3.
However, while Killzone 3 and Gran Turismo were exciting, I’m interested in something altogether, simpler…
This week is pretty good, although if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber you don’t get anything worthwhile aside from Gravity Crash being half priced.
Aside from that, there are two games to download. There’s Landit Bandit, a 3D helicopter adventure title that looks lighthearted and fun, and then there’s DeathSpank, an action RPG that doesn’t take itself too seriously. There is a demo for DeathSpank. Be sure to try out the Demon Poop Hammer and let us know what you thought of the game.
If that’s not enough for you there’s also a multiplayer demo for Blur. Aside from that everything else is DLC. Most of which is for NCAA Football and Trinity Universe. Pretty boring stuff.
It is interesting to note that there are new avatars for Super Street Fighter IV (Vega, Sakura, Ibuki), Crash Commando, and … Street Fighter Alpha 3 (Charlie, R. Mika, Rolento). Yup, you read that right. Street Fighter Alpha 3. Perhaps it has something to do with Yoshinori Ono’s Comic-Con announcement? Speculate away…
Joe Danger is one of the biggest new games on the PlayStation Store, and today the developers have been at the Develop Conference 2010 where they revealed some interesting statistics for the title.
Despite the high development costs that developers face for games on the PlayStation 3, Hello Games’ Managing Director Sean Murray revealed that the game broke even on the day of release.
