Fresh off the heals of one of the biggest shopping days of the year and immediately after a similar report out of the Microsoft camp, Sony has announced how many units the Move has sold worldwide so far. Seeing a number this large has to please Sony, as they went on record a while back saying that they expect Move to sell like the Eye Toy did back in the PlayStation 2 days. If it keeps up at this pace, it will shatter those figures.
Zombies are all the rage right now in gaming. It seems like just about every store update has something that involves the undead, and this week is no different. Dead Nation has finally hit the PlayStation Store and you can go grab it right now for only $14.99. Also available is the cute platformer we showed you yesterday, called Funky Lab Rat.
PlayStation Plus members get a decent haul this week as they have access to a free mini, a 20% discount on Dead Nation, and a 50% discount on Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation and three PSone titles.
Other than a couple of items that pack a big punch, this is actually kind of a small update. There’s not a ton of game videos or add-ons that hold a lot of weight but hopefully everyone will find something that floats their boat. Take a look at the complete list and let us know what you’ll be picking up.
Shooting zombies in the face. Roasting the dead with a flame thrower. Blowing up monsters with explosives. Creating ultimate carnage with just about any weapon you can imagine. If any of those lines piqued your interest, then you may want to check out the new Dead Nation launch trailer.
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is an updated sequel to BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, which was released over a year ago. Included in Continuum Shift are three new characters, a rebalanced roster, and added modes for beginners and advanced players.
Like Super Street Fighter IV, the latest version of BlazBlue is available at a cheaper price than its predecessor. Despite that, does Arc System Works manage to justify the existence of a sequel so soon, or is Continuum Shift just a rip off designed to take advantage of its fanbase?
E3 is probably the largest gaming event of the year. Regardless of which country you live in or which platform you prefer, it’s pretty likely that you pay attention to E3. If you live in the U.S. and you’re the kind of gamer that likes to see it all happen live, you’re in luck.
While trolling through the suddenly small list of news and press releases today, we stumbled across a rat. A Funky Lab Rat, to be exact. No, we didn’t squeal like little girls and jump on the nearest chair, but rather we watched with intrigue. So what is Funky Lab rat?
Gran Turismo has always been on a different plateau from its competition; that is not only other racers but just about any game, in any genre. It’s unique for its impressive sense of scale, polish, authenticity, depth and class. Yet, while that is its history, we’re in a different era now; so does this racing Tour de force still deserve to be revered, or is it time we sent Gran Turismo packing, to join Pong at our local gaming museum?
Mad Catz is offering up to 50% off on select peripherals and even B1G1 free on SFIV Tournament Edition FightSticks. Don’t miss out on these amazing deals!
FirstPlay has gone reviews crazy this week, with reviews of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, recent SingStar releases, and a whole host of the second wave of PlayStation Move titles, including TV Superstars, The Fight: Lights Out and The Shoot.
There’s also an online review of FIFA 11, an interesting feature on the difficulty of awarding review scores, screenshot galleries of Dungeon Siege III and Operation Flashpoint: Red River, and even a free minis title, Beam’em Up.
As Gran Turismo 5 launches today, there will undoubtedly be some of you wondering whether or not to buy the game or not. Here’s 5 things you should know about GT5.
We have a feeling that a lot of people will be too absorbed in a certain driving simulator to have much interest in today’s Store update, but to be fair if you thought SCEE would give us a small update this week then you’d be wrong.
For a start, there are several PSN games released, including Pac-Man Championship Edition DX and Funky Lab Rat, as well as downloadable content for Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Mafia II and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
It’s also worth mentioning this week’s deals, which include offers on all Prince of Persia related content. There’s also a long overdue permanent price cut of the Awakening expansion for Dragon Age: Origins, which is actually a bit of a bargain now.
So, can any of this content tempt you away from the racing behemoth that is Gran Turismo 5?
Gran Turismo 5 is released today, and portable racing fans are storming into the lead. One of the game’s neatest features is the ability to transfer car data from Gran Turismo Portable, making those pint-sized cars available in the big game – they get bigger. So, if you ploughed hours into the PSP version, why not take advantage of your library of over 800 cars and get a head-start on the rest?
So, it’s finally here – the driving simulator to end all driving simulators. But the question is, do you pick up the standard edition of the game for £39.99, or get some extra content with the Collector’s Edition for £59.99? Don’t worry; PS3 Attitude is here to help.
Fans of Battlefied: Bad Company 2, look this way and watch a new Developer Video for the upcoming expansion pack to the popular multiplayer segment: Vietnam.

Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage is a game based on the popular manga series from the 1980’s. Set in a world destroyed by a nuclear holocaust, the story revolves around Kenshiro, the successor of an assassin’s art known as Hokuto Shinken. This powerful martial art allows Kenshiro to utilize pressure points located on the human body to decimate his opponents in brutally awesome ways.
Ken’s Rage is Tecmo Koei’s attempt at retelling the entire story of the manga. Did the developers at Omega Force do the beloved franchise justice, or is Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage already dead?
Here at PS3 Attitude, there are few things that please us more than seeing a very good game boast very good sales. As you no doubt read from our review, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was indeed a very good game. So far, it looks like it’s also selling very well.
I can’t speak for the rest of the crew but if you’re anything like me, you love Netflix instant streaming. The problem I’ve always had with it is the disc portion. I always feel like I’m paying for something I don’t use because most of the time, whatever disc I have at home usually stays there for the majority of the month. Netflix now has a solution.
Gran Turismo 5 will be hitting stores tomorrow, much to the delight of PlayStation 3 owners around the world. It’s the latest in a series that dates back to 1997, when Gran Turismo first arrived on the PSOne. However, Gran Turismo is actually much older than that; Kazunori Yamauchi (and his team of seven) started developing the original back in 1992. Yes, a staggering 18 years ago.
