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...
Tony Hawk games have taken somewhat of a beating over the last few years with fans begging for a fresh approach to the franchise and the emergence of the Skate series from EA.
But Activision have plans to return the Birdman to the number one spot by supporting the Far-East’s ability to knock out huge lumps of plastic for very little outlay.
Yes people; this year you’ll be standing on a huge board controller of your own, hoping nobody glances through your living room window as you play Tony Hawk Ride.
In grand PS3 Attitude tradition, we offering you the chance to own a Limited Edition 24-carat gold-plated 4Gb iPod Shuffle, laser etched with the Call of Juarez logo on the clip.
Currently one of only six in existence, and with only another 14 planned, here’s your chance to own something special whilst helping us raise money for charity.
Word reaches us that the official King of Fighters XII website has gone live, and packs a few nice surprises.
As well as fighter profiles and the usual multimedia you’d expect from a game-site, Ignition have announced a ‘Fan Art Contest’.
This contest, which will run from May 12 to July 31, will reward the best user-created fan art with $1,000. Runner-ups will receive consoles, games, and limited-edition figurines. All of the submissions can be found on the Fan Art section of the official KOF site.
Starting today, and repeating every Tuesday, PS3 Attitude is becoming PSFree Attitude.
Yes, we’ll be giving away all sorts of freebies to our loyal Twitter followers every week with prizes ranging from PSN codes for new games and DLC to physical swag that we have here at Attitude Towers.
We told you it was a good time to be following us on Twitter, didn’t we?
PS3 Attitude on TwitterThis week in Twitter, we spent time discussing which netbook to buy, what cereal to eat, what constitutes an ‘exclusive’ and why Gmail is suggesting burlesque poledancing lessons in Newcastle.
We also spend a little time teasing our Twitter follows about some cool stuff we have planned for the weeks ahead, and we were recommended by several members of the Twitterati (including the nice people at @SonyPlayStation).
inFamous has long been a source of much discussion amongst the crew at Attitude Towers.
The heat was turned up yesterday afternoon when SCEE sent us the inFamous demo. After a longer than usual download thanks to a dodgy wireless router, we fired up the demo for the first time. 56 minutes and 7 seconds later we had the answer to a most burning question; is inFamous shockingly good, or did it fail to spark our imagination?
Ubisoft have announced today that, in the UK at least, the official Assassin’s Creed 2 announcements will arrive via four magazines.
The latest issues of Play, 360, Total PC Gaming and gamesTM include the official UK-exclusive announcements of the forthcoming sequel.
But how can you get your hands on the news right now?
One word. Everyone’s lips.
Whilst we certainly weren’t the first video game news site to join the 140-character bandwagon, we are making the most of the service.
And soon, you too can make the most of following us on 2009′s favourite social network.
Did somebody say ‘giveaway’?
You may know we have a soft spot for The King of Fighters series here at Attitude Towers.
Now, Ignition is giving the opportunity to the online community to choose the official box art for the PS3 and X360 versions.
Subscribers of the PlayStation Official Magazine in the UK received their latest edition in the post this morning, with the headline story being their review of forthcoming superhero-em-up, inFamous.
The review, which pitches inFamous as ‘shockingly good’, runs across six pages of the June 2009 edition of the magazine, and features a number of useful hints and tips that will help players when the game hits our streets before the end of May.
Another title that was announced at a former E3 (2008, if you must know), Singularity has been gaining a lot of interest lately.
The latest gameplay videos show us a number of interesting mechanics, making this more than just your usual run-of-the-mill FPS title.
But with the poor success of (possibly) similar titles such as Fracture and Timeshift, will Singularity have enough gravitational pull to make it really stand out from the burgeoning shooter crowd?
PS3 Attitude has today handed over its entire operating profit to games industry charity GamesAid.
On the back of this news, PS3 Attitude has decided that now is the best time to further expand the team and help generate greater profits for GamesAid in the future…
The Edinburgh Interactive Festival has today announced that early-bird rates are now available for delegate passes for this yearâ€™s Festival.
Special rates will be available for anyone wishing to book tickets between now and Friday 29th May.
Throughout April, we’ve been running our big Spring Competition for everyone who followed us on Twitter and ‘tweeted’ a particular phrase.
Now, the time has come to announce the winner of this impressive bounty…
You asked us for more competitions, and boy are we gonna give them to you!
Here’s a reminder of the first competition in the 2009 giveaway schedule. There is still time to enter before the winner is chosen this Sunday.
It is not often that we receive something in the post that leaves us mildly baffled, but this morning was one of those times.
A postcard arrived with a picture of Venice on the front. The rear of the postcard contains none of the usual ‘wish you were here’ drivel that most postcards around the world carry; in fact it carries no text at all. The postmark is clearly from Central Milan, not Venice.
Then we started to notice something recognisable within the picture that gave the game away…
TikGames and Creat Studios are bringing more content to their three most recent PSN titles from April 16th.
Magic Ball, Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom and Cuboid will all gain add-on DLC packs over the next few weeks, the first being 25 all-new levels for Magic Ball.
We just received word that ThreeSpeech, the semi-official UK/EU PlayStation 3 blog, will be closing their doors on April 17th.
The change is to make way for a new EU Official PS Blog along the lines of the much-lauded US site, and whilst we love that site with a passion it is sad to see ThreeSpeech moving on…
PSU got their hands on the first proper trailer for Data-Fly, the Origo Games title that was heavily teased last month.
Origo also launched a teaser website in March with a countdown clock that is due to end at midnight (UK time) tonight, so this is a likely precursor to other Data-Fly announcements and media.
Whatever information Origo continue to release over the next day, we can’t deny the game is looking very intriguing…
