With the dazzling opening ceremony last Friday, there was only one theme we could choose for this week’s article: the Olympics! Specifically, we’ve been discussing some of the biggest heroes on PS3, and which sports they would dominate in at the London Games.

Indie game franchise Knytt is coming later this year to the PS3 and PS Vita thanks to a partnership between the developer Nifflas, the production company Green Hill, and Ripstone Publishing.

We are well into the second half of 2012 and feel the need to look back on some of the best releases the first two quarters of 2012 had. The year is usually so heavily packed with AAA releases during the holiday months that it’s easy to forget about the gems that came before them.
Each member of the PS3 Attitude team has assigned a point value of 5, 3, and 1 to their top three games of 2012 thus far, allowing us to create a list of the top five games. In the end we had a list well over 10 games. Here are our top five.
It’s once again time for PS3 Attitude to take a flippant look at the world of gaming. This week’s trope is impossibly obese bosses, all of whom could definitely stand to lose a few pounds; or a few stones; or, in one case, a few million tons. We had a fair amount of fat – sorry, big-boned – characters to choose from, but these are the five that made it onto our virtual weighing scales.

With all the different editions available to you when Assassin’s Creed 3 releases, you might be thinking “How am I going to hold all these AC3′s!?” but the simple solution to that is you don’t.
Instead, you should go for the best edition available, which is courteous enough to be from on-line only stores to save you the hassle of carrying it home, and that is the Freedom Edition if this video is anything to go by.
Hot on the heels of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle reveal comes the announcement of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD.
