Editor-in-Chief, Founder and all-round Big Cheese at PS3 Attitude. Despite it not having a sound chip of any description, I once wrote a working music creation application for the ZX-81...
As you may know, PS3 Attitude is an official media partner for Edinburgh Interactive 09. You can always find all the latest news regarding the event here.
So without further ado, here is our full and complete show preview, helping you get the best from the event.
We love competitions and giveaways here at PS3 Attitude. Heck, every Tuesday we even rebrand the site to ‘PSFree Attitude’ in honour of our weekly Twitter-based freebie-fest.
But this week we’ve got something really special for y’all. Yes, we’re offering you the chance to get your hands on one of the rarest of commodities for your precious Sackboy – a Golden Crown.
So what do you need to do to win this glistening ode to your creativity and awesomeness?
Need for Speed Shift has started moving up a gear and is now preparing to take over YouTube with some great new trailers.
To warm you up for the event we have a teaser trailer featuring top drivers such as Vaughn Gittin Jr., Tommy Milner and others who worked hand-in-hand with the dev team at Slightly Mad Studios to take Shift to the next level.
Good day dear readers.
The swanky new login bar we implemented recently just didn’t work out. Once we’d got it home, it started re-arranging all our furniture and brought it’s pet bug collection along with it, so we had to be cruel to be kind and kick it out on the street.
But here’s the good news…
LucasArts have announced that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will see further expansion this Autumn through a new downloadable level that promises to take the story in a new direction.
In addition, they also announced Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition, a special new version of the game that will show gamers the deepest, darkest side of the Force in a story that puts them on a collision course with Luke Skywalker himself.
The Ultimate Sith Edition will include all of the original missions found in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed as well as content previously only available via download and an all-new exclusive bonus level.
As is our want here at PS3 Attitude, we like to get involved with the politics of gaming every now and then.
On reading the report that Nathan Hartley, an 18-year-old from Maryland in the United States had been sentenced to seven years in prison for an act we’d never heard of before – ‘door-checking’ – what sparked our interest was the insistence that this activity is an integral part of Grand Theft Auto.
But rather than tow the sensationalist line, we asked the prosecutor in this case, John Mark McDonald, what really happened and why GTA was even brought into this courtroom, since we don’t remember seeing this activity in the game at all.
We’re big fans of SingStar here at PS3 Attitude, and the already burgeoning song catalogue is about to take another leap forward.
Today, Sony have announced a deal that will bring a whole slew of Universal Music UK tracks to the SingStore for download over the next few weeks.
So what can we look forward to warbling along to?
Castle Crashers has been a bit of a ‘diamond in the rough’ on Xbox Live Arcade since it became available for download last August.
The game, best described as a 2D sideways scrolling brawler, has even managed minor cult status, along with the obligatory ‘fan art’ movement, thanks to the quirky art style and characters.
Now, Castle Crashers is coming to the PSN and if you’re in San Diego at Comic-con, you can get your hands on the game at the event.
As an Official Media Partner for Edinburgh Interactive 09, it would be remiss of us not to offer you, our glorious readers, a summary of who is doing what and when.
So without further ado, here is a complete event schedule for those of you going along to the event in Edinburgh this year.
We’ve been waxing lyrical about VidZone since it launched on the PS3, what with the fact that it is free, contains thousands of music videos and is being updated every week with hundreds more.
But now VidZone has taken the first step towards becoming a real benefit to sales of the PS3 thanks to gaining the first exclusive showing of U2’s latest video.
We’re always striving to provide you, our gracious readers, with the best features and tools here at PS3 Attitude, and we hope the latest changes we’ve made will be to your liking.
In one of our biggest updates for some time, we’ve added new commenting features, a great new login system and various other cool additions.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is already looking hard as nails, and this time around you’ll be able to buddy up with a friend to get your collective backsides kicked all the way to Kyoto.
Comic-Con in San Diego is starting to look like a gamers’ paradise, as more collaborations and game tie-ins are announced.
The latest? EA, developer Visceral Games and DC Comics/Wildstorm have announced a collaboration that will see the launch of a comic mini-series based on Dante’s Inferno.
Which has to be the easiest tie-in ever…
Harmonix and MTV have announced today that Rock Band will allow artists to upload their own music in the future.
Much like websites such as MP3.com and others that sprang up many years ago, the team behind Rock Band intend to allow independent musicians to upload their own work and sell it to Rock Band owners.
Whilst this does solve one problem for Harmonix and MTV – namely the delivery of a regular stream of licenced music – the new system will also offer challenges that require considerable thought.
