The PS3 and PS Vita have seen a handful of Cross Buy titles (purchase one version of a game, get the other for free) in the last few months, including MotorStorm RC and the recently released (and brilliant) Sound Shapes, but up until now they’ve all been relatively small PSN games, not full retail titles. Well, that’s all set to change later this year.
It really exists. Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified actually exists. We were told it was coming, long before PS Vita launched. But the secrecy surrounding this title left us in doubt.
Did Sony accidental tell us they secured a Call of Duty but forgot to check with Activision? Was that embarrassing logo moment at E3 just a cover, an attempt to secure more time?

EA has released the first trailer for upcoming third-person shooter Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel and, this is a total shot in the dark, it would seem as if something has gone terribly wrong in Mexico.
Killzone coming to Vita doesn’t surprise anybody but it’s still great to have Sony finally confirm it at gamescom.

Darksiders II opens with Death charging up a frozen keep on Despair, his fearsome steed, hacking the few enemies brave enough to get in his way. The next stage sees him running up and across walls, clinging to pillars, shimmying at speed across hand holds and taking out ice skeletons with ferocious combos. A boss battle soon follows, which is surprisingly more intense than what you’d normally expect at this early stage.
