Kevin Butler has been the face of every PlayStation 3 commercial in the United States for over a year now. But his great success expands beyond the TV screens because he is also knows his way round Twitter.
Last March we compiled a list of the top 30 tweets by @TheKevinButler. It was such a success that we decided to bring it back with all his 50 best tweets from the end of March to the end of July! BOOM!
PS3 Attitude is extremely pleased to launch our sister website – PS3 Attitude TV.
We’ll be bringing you a range of ‘channels’ at PS3A TV over the coming months, and we’ve already been busy making sure there’s a good amount of content for you to come and view right now. Let us tell you more…
The sequel to one of 2009’s greatest games Batman: Askham Asylum was announced with a massively unoriginal name by simply sticking the number 2 at the end. This was especially strange considering the second game could no longer be based in Arkham Asylum.
So Warner Brothers have gone back to the drawing board and come up with a brand new name: Batman: Arkham City.
The ModNation Racers update that we mentioned last week has now released. So it’s time to pop the champagne right?
Sadly not as this update may have fixed some issues with the game, but it has also delivered new ones.
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?
Last Friday, PS3 Attitude attended the PlayStation BetaRooms event and got a peek at some upcoming games, as well as the Move and 3D.
If you didn’t get a chance to attend the weekend, then go to our Flickr page and look out for some videos in the near future. First however, lets take a look at the Move.
Fond of Zen Pinball? Looking for another reason to go back and wear out your flippers? We’ve got the reason, right here.
The Mars DLC table has landed and we have the low-down about the newest download for the classic PSN pinball game.
Eastasiasoft has released 12 new screenshots of Söldner-X 2’s upcoming DLC.
“We’re gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse”. That’s what 2K said to us when they invited us to try out Mafia II, and who were we to turn down the advances of a team who had clearly let a self-imposed prohibition and a propensity to stuff cotton wool in their cheeks go to their heads.
The question is, of course, is Mafia II a ‘hit’ in the making?
We’ve already detailed all the content PlayStation Plus members will be able to download that will be included with today’s PS Store update. Don’t worry if you’re not a subscriber though as there is still plenty of content available for all.
If you’re a fan of shoot’em ups, you’ll be pleased to know that Gundemonium Collection makes its European debut. For £9.99/€12.99 you get not one, not two, but three entire games! If you read our review, you should know that it’s a fantastic deal.
The EU PlayStation Blog is a great source for PlayStation related news. They updated us on the PlayStation Plus content for August and September and now they have revealed the full details for Gran Turismo 5’s Signature Edition. It’s absolutely brilliant – if a bit expensive. We want it.
Much to the surprise of us here at the Attitude Towers, Crysis 2’s release has been pushed back.
How far back?
The news is in: over at the EU PlayStation blog, Sony have announced the content that will be available on PlayStation plus throughout August and September. As expected, it’s a mix of PSN games, minis, PSOne Classics, full game trials, DLC, dynamic themes and avatars.
Need for Speed: Shift 2 was announced by EA recently, and it was done in quite possibly the most boring fashion imaginable.
So what details can we tell you about this new sequel?
Top Gun for the PSN is exactly what you think it is. Based on the iconic ’80s movie of the same name you get to fly around as Maverick, taking down the bad guys one missile at a time.
PS3 Attitude were coaxed out of our ivory traffic control tower to get hands-on with this forthcoming PSN title. So, exactly what does this new dogfighting game have to offer?
Haggar approves of this update! RAWR!
*piledrives a car*
Tons of deals this week. We already mentioned the contents of the Summer Sale but there’s even more! Most notably, Final Fight: Double Impact is 50% off. There is nothing more satisfying than piledriving your way through countless waves of thugs as you try to save your daughter from a dude in a wheel chair. Yeah!
PS3 owners finally gets their hands on Earthworm Jim HD today. It’ll be interesting to see how new gamers react to the very oldschool design. Gameloft didn’t make any changes to the gameplay at all. All the problems that existed then are still an issue now. There is a trial so let us know what you thought of it.
Lots of DLC this week from all the usual suspects. The 3rd Marvel pack for LBP is out. Now you can dress your sackboy up as Wolverine and slice your way to happiness. Trine has a new downloadable level and it’ll only cost you a dollar. Not bad, although it was free for PC owners. Perhaps the most bitter DLC of the bunch comes from Aksys Games. Squirrel girl Makoto is now available, which is nice, but she’s $8. There’s also a bunch of other pointless DLC for the game that will cost you quite a penny. Colors, voices? Really? Why would someone buy that? Just stick with the Squirrel and you’ll be fine.
Remember when EA announced that NBA Jam was coming back exclusively for the Wii? Well, it looks like things have changed a bit since then.
Electronic Arts are being sued by close to 6,000 retired National Football League players over the “unlawful” use of the players’ likenesses in Madden NFL 09. It is alleged that the publisher “knowingly and intentionally” used their likenesses for the historic teams in a way that avoided having to pay licensing fees. Naughty naughty.
It’s that time of the year again. Summer deals for everyone (in North America and Canada). Yay!
