Fight Night Round 4 – The PS3 Attitude Review

Cast your mind back to 2005.

We’re at E3 and Kudo Tsunoda is showing ‘real-time’ footage of what the PS3 is capable of doing for his Fight Night franchise. Of course, what is shown at E3 didn’t transpire when Fight Night Round 3 arrived on our beloved black monolith, raising questions of whether it was real-time after all.

Does Fight Night Round 4 finally deliver the realism we crave, as demonstrated four years ago?

Burnout’s Big Surf Island is full of eggs

Criterion have released details of a raft of hidden gems in their recently released Big Surf Island expansion for Burnout Paradise.

We’ve spent a little time on the island recently here at Attitude Towers and whilst we hadn’t noticed anything in particular (since we spend most of our time driving everywhere at full speed), we’re certainly liking the new space.

Now that Criterion have told us there’s more to Big Surf than meets the eye, we might have to slow down.

Motorstorm: Pacific Rift patch brings us Home

Motorstorm: Pacific Rift has received a third major patch, and this update brings us closer to a more relevant and fully featured PlayStation Home gaming environment.

Home has certainly been coming along at a pace, but one of the main features promised and demonstrated prior to release still requires much better support; game launching.

EU PlayStation site gets ‘Trophy Wars’ feature

Over at the Official EU PlayStation Blog, SCEE have been detailing some updates to the already popular Portable ID feature.

In fact, these new updates do remind us somewhat of a certain ‘Trophy Wars’ feature we ran here at PS3 Attitude some time ago!

Yes, soon you’ll be able to compare your trophies online with your friends and see how they’re doing against your tally with a fully automatic leaderboard.

PS3 Attitude reach 1,000 Twitter followers; free stuff ensues

We have had a few great moments at PS3 Attitude over the years, and this weekend we hit yet another milestone.

After jumping on the Twitter bandwagon very late, only starting to tweet on January 26th 2009, we hit the 1,000 follower mark just five months later.

We’ve had our own internal celebration (involving drinks and nibbles), so here’s our gift to you, the people who made it all possible.

PSN and Cloud; a viable alternative to illegal downloads

PSN and Cloud; a viable alternative to illegal downloads

The PlayStation Network looks set to expand across non-gaming devices in the near future, and it seems that Sony are looking for the PSN to play a part in helping provide a viable alternative to illegal downloads.

In a recent article by Fortune, extensively detailing the current executive strategies Sony are undertaking, you can clearly understand the importance of the PlayStation Network to the Japanese consumer electronics giant.

Let’s take a closer look at some of their recent statements.

2.80 included some updates after all [UPDATE]

The latest firmware to hit the PlayStation 3, v2.80, seems to have created somewhat of a stir on the Internet.

Not because it included any groundbreaking changes. No. In fact all the talk has been about what wasn’t included, and why Sony felt the need to make this a ‘point release’ (a 0.1 increase in the version number) instead of a minor update (to 2.71, for example).

The firmware update has also created a flow of anti-SCE commentary as people wonder why Sony don’t just come clean with every update and publish the full changelog.

But after much searching and a handy news tip from one of our readers, we can reveal the extent of the actual changes to your XMB.

Sky apologise for PSN connect issues

Sky Broadband, in a statement to Eurogamer, have confirmed they are aware of the problem that some PS3 owners in the UK have been experiencing and they are working to fix the problem.

If you are on their Sky Broadband Connect service, you may have been signed out from the PSN or had access issues during peak hours – between 17:00 and 0:00 UK time – thanks to an error in ‘traffic classification’.

“What’s that”, we hear you ask?

Can Final Fantasy VII top the PSN’s greatest hits?

With the recent news that Final Fantasy VII has reached 100,000 downloads from the US PlayStation Store within a fortnight, there was only one question that sprung to our collective mind.

Could a PSOne title from 1997 actually beat the likes of current-gen darlings such as Warhawk, GT5 Prologue and Ratchet & Clank?

There’s only one way to find out…

Hands-on with Sony Ericsson AINO

Yesterday we were at the global launch of the new Sony Ericsson AINO, the first mobile phone to include PS3 Remote Play technology.

We got a chance to get our hands on the device itself whilst at the event, and managed to capture some (shaky) video of the phone accessing the PS3. But what else does the AINO offer?

Afrika finally arriving in North America; for real this time

Afrika finally arriving in North America; for real this time

We have had a long distance relationship with Rhino Studios’ shoot-em-up-with-a-camera title Afrika since it came to our attention back in 2006.

The original trailer for Afrika didn’t reveal anything of the gameplay, a topic that became quite the ‘Internet wildfire’ as speculation mounted about what you might actually do in the game. Much later, a second trailer showed us a human character taking photographs, and there was even talk of the game shipping with a ‘pressure mat’ that could sense your movements as you got closer to the wildlife.

We waited with baited breath for news of Afrika’s release into the West. So what happened?
