Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3 that focuses on Abstergo and the powerful capabilities of the Animus.
It also focuses on the multiplayer aspects of the game and gives us a look at the customisation options, maps, characters and game modes.
This week, PS3 Attitude has been discussing PSN trophies, or more specifically, trophies that must have spawned from the depths of hell. Everyone loves trophies, but occasionally a challenge will come along that is so ridiculously hard and/or time consuming, you have to think to yourself; what’s the point? These are our picks for 5 of the most evil trophies on PSN.
When you see two Tekken players moving with the rhythm of the fight, do see carefully considered footwork, precise execution of combos and perfectly timed blocks? Or is it all just one confusing blur, which you presume could only be caused by the two players bashing their pads?
Naughty Dog have released patch 1.13 for Uncharted 3, the game’s biggest ever patch which they have affectionately named Godzilla.
The patch includes a variety of things but the headline attraction seems to be the inclusion of a Tournament Mode, both for the fun it brings and the criticism that the tickets microtransaction scheme has brought.
Zen Pinball 2 has finally received a release date, and it’s September 4, announced Zen Studios this morning. It will be available on both the PS3 and PS Vita free of charge with the option to purchase individual tables for cross-platform download.
GRID 2 was finally announced today by Codemasters after two years in pre-production. Due out in 2013, the sequel to 2008’s Race Driver: GRID promises “high-impact aggressive thrills” for a “cinematic race experience”.

It will be available as downloadable content alongside fan favourite, hit-on-everybody Wallace Wells as a playable character.
Sony have announced that LittleBigPlanet Karting, developed by United Front Games, will be racing on to store shelves (you can imagine them if you buy online) later this Winter.
Pre-order bonuses and a special edition have also been revealed but are they enough to make you take the plunge on day one? I think the VP of Everything Awesome will pull you in with his brilliant ways.
Sacred Citadel is an upcoming side-scrolling brawler based on the action RPG Sacred series that will be available for download in 2013, Southend Interactive and Deep Silver announced today.
Players will be able to choose between three character classes; the Safiri Warrior, the Ancarian Ranger and the Khukuri Shaman.

The latest trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops II unveils the curtain surrounding the always-popular multiplayer of the next installment in the franchise and includes a few new surprises to boot.
Sony has announced that they will be releasing the God of War Saga and the inFamous Collection later this year exclusively to the US.
They will both be released on 28th August for $29.99 each and although they are currently only planned for the US, a Europe release has not been ruled out.
THQ has dropped Guillermo del Toro’s inSANE and moved away from casual and social games in an effort to refocus resources towards its core games market.
Jason Rubin, president of THQ, made the announcement during an investor’s call on Monday, where he also revealed positive first quarter figures.
Writing about games and playing games are a couple of the things that we here at PS3 Attitude do best. So why not share with you a little bit about the games that we have found the time to play amidst our busy summer schedules. New games coming and going, what did we get our hands on this week?
Arc System Works has announced BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, the latest instalment in the hugely popular 2D fighting series.
The story will continue from where Continuum Shift left off but have the developers, Arc System Works, done enough to entice you to visit the world of Ragna and co. again? Read on to decide.
The PC cult favourite, Metro 2033, could have been better had THQ realised the game’s quality at an earlier stage of development, says the company’s head of global communication. However, Huw Benyon says the sequel will get the extra support its predecessor never got.
Every generation, Sony takes one of its biggest franchises and turns it into a kart racer; on PSone it was Crash Bandicoot, on PS2 it was Jak and Daxter, and on PS3 it will be LittleBigPlanet. Kart racers are often looked upon with contempt by many gamers, because it normally signals the end of a console generation, and a refocus towards a more casual audience.
However, they also (usually) happen to be bloody good fun, so PS3 Attitude thought we’d take a look at which other games we’d like to see given the kart racing treatment.
Top developers have a lot in common with championship winning F1 teams: they both know the value of a good engine.
The F1 team may have great drivers but this means nothing if they’re sent out in a heavy, unreliable car. Likewise, the most creative game devs will always struggle if they’re asked to work with a shoddy game engine.
This new Assassin’s Creed 3 trailer shows off Ubisoft’s new engine, AnvilNext, and its confident tone suggests they think they have a winner.
EA have kept the Army of Two series under wraps since it’s last game, The 40th Day, was released in early 2010 but have today announced that fans will see another game, The Devil’s Cartel, as EA are aiming for it to be on store shelves by March 2013.
Visceral Games, developers of the Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno series’, will be bringing us the game and have taken over from EA Montreal creating it. We have faith that Visceral Games will put a fresh, unique take on it and that it will stand up against the ever-growing list of games coming out early next year.
When you think of Medal of Honor and the prestige the series has brought to war veterans since its uprising on PS one, don’t you also think of Linkin Park? If the answer is a resounding “NO”, then you are likely the target audience for EA’s latest marketing partnership initiative for the next iteration in the Medal of Honor series.
