Last week we launched PS3 Attitude’s second annual Seach Win and Gloat competition. We had you search our E3 2010 articles for keywords that would lead you to instructions on how you can win our fabulous Swag bag filled with goodies we managed to gather at the convention.
Here’s how it all went down…
Gran Turismo 5 will finally arrive this November, and to increase our anticipation for its release Polyphony Digital has released two new trailers.
The trailers show-off the game’s breathtaking visuals, varied environments and wide selection of cars. The new car damage physics are also on show and they look a whole lotta fun.
Rockstar and GameSpy have teamed up to bring us a slew of stats gathered from the recently released Read Dead Redemption. While the stats don’t have any real significant value, who wouldn’t want to know that 7,771,916 bears have been killed or that 300,000 miles have been traveled by train?
Yoichi Wada, president and CEO of Square Enix, was speaking to VentureBeat at E3 and he told them that his company are looking to become the first publisher to succeed globally. Wada believes that the company’s multiculturalism can give them an edge over other publishers.
With inFamous 2 on the way, its developers have been reflecting on the mistakes they made with the first game. The PlayStation exclusive came with much hype, but it received a mixed reaction.
Chris Zimmerman has been speaking frankly to Play about what went wrong and how the sequel will be much better.
The biggest fighting game tournament just got bigger!
As many of you know, in the recent firmware update v3.40, one of the many features introduced was the ability to rate content on the PlayStation Store.
For us this was one of the best new additions to the PS3 because it assists gamers when choosing what games to buy for their system.
Electronic Entertainment Expo – better known as E3 – is the biggest date on the gaming calendar. The event was as big as ever this year and, unsurprisingly, it stole our attention for the best part of June. All the leading publishers were there promoting upcoming titles, hoping that they could impress us journalists enough so that we would enthuse about their projects to you. There is a lot of enthusing to be done.
So here we are with another Deals of the Week, and the first for July 2010!
As many of you know, both England and the United States went out of the last 16 in the World Cup last weekend, and so if you’re a football/soccer fan, we think you may need a little cheering up.
EA has released a video with Cliff Bleszinski, a designer at Epic Games, who takes us through his team’s latest project, the obscenely gory Bulletstorm. Bleszinski shows off the game mechanics, and he informs us that this is the only video game that allows you to give your enemies “a colon cleansing with lead.” We’re sold.
Wow! The first gameplay trailer for inFAMOUS 2 has just surfaced on the Internet, and after watching all three minutes and thirteen seconds of it, we are gobsmacked.
As soon as the trailer started playing it was instantly recognisable to us as big fans of the first game.
Time Crisis: Razing Storm with PlayStation Move controls works exactly as it should but the gameplay itself is just a massive disappointment.
The Chronicle Taxidermist DLC for Heavy Rain was released back in April, it was set to be part of a series of prequels that delved back into the past of the various characters. These plans were put on hold so the team could work on PS Move and it’s unlikely that they’ll be made in the future due to time constraints.
Understandably not everyone is too enthusiastic about the prospect of paying $10 a month for Hulu Plus just so they can watch content from their PS3 instead of a PC…
2K Games are continuing to make good their promise of an “aggressive post-launch downloadable content plan” for BioShock 2 with the announcement today of the Protector Trials DLC.
Unlike the previous two instalments, the Sinclair Solutions Test Pack and the Rapture Metro pack, the Protector Trials are a single-player expansion developed by the core team behind BioShock 2’s single-player experience.
