According to VG247, EA were due to showcase a new console-only DICE game at an event in the UK today.
However, the event has been cancelled due to the snow. Whilst this site is not the place to rant about the fact that the UK goes to pot after 2-3 inches of the cold white stuff, it is a shame that we’ll have to wait to find out what EA have up their thermal sleeves.

A lot has been written about the PS3′s ‘weak’ sales and the never-ending (it seems) battle with Microsoft’s Xbox 360.

Hopefully that gameplay video we showed made you sit back and appreciate just what the PS3 is capable of. Now, we can reveal some of the startling facts behind this much-anticipated title.

The PS3 browser has always done a pretty good job of showing YouTube videos, especially since YouTube themselves started supporting 720p resolution.
But that is all about to get a lot better.
