I've been gaming since I was just a wee lad but it wasn't until about 5-6 years ago that video games really started to grab ahold of me. Now, I play pretty much every day. I enjoy games from just about every genre, although fighting games and JRPG's have yet to really grab me. I'm a particular fan of on-line and co-op game modes, and I really enjoy the social aspects of those kinds of games. I'm always up for talking about games and technology so if you ever see me around, don't be afraid to strike up a conversation.
In case you weren’t around towards the end of 2009, we’ll tell you that we absolutely loved DiRT 2. There are very few members of the PS3 Attitude team that aren’t big rally fans, so this franchise has always been big around here. When DiRT 3 was announced, we were giddy with excitement and now that more information is starting to come in, we can hardly contain ourselves.
Homefront is a game that – for us – has been the complete polar opposite of a game like DC Universe that we talked about in the article below. There have been a fair amount of details that have leaked about Homefront and what it’s all about. Those details and the minor amount of gameplay footage we’ve seen so far have us very excited. Click the title to see more info and some new screens.
We haven’t talked much about DC Universe in a while and the few things we’ve had to say about it have been very lukewarm. It’s not just us, either. Much of the gaming community seems to be a little skeptical about this title. Today we’re bringing you some new screens with the hope of boosting your excitement level.
It was just shy of two years ago when Killzone 2 exploded on to the scene and inserted itself as yet another multiplayer juggernaut on the PlayStation 3. As crowded as the genre already is, Killzone has always found a way to set itself apart. Now, we’ve had some hands on time with the Killzone 3 multiplayer beta and we’re ready to bring you our impressions. So how does it hold up?
It was only a few days ago that we showed you the Creatinator video for LittleBigPlanet 2 but we’re already back with another small featurette involving everyone’s favorite little sackboy. This time Media Molecule is showing off a new tool called the grabinator. Click the title to see how it works.
Hey there, it’s time once again for the PlayStation Store Update! There’s not a ton of content this time around as far as games go but if you like themes or game videos, then this may very well be the update you’ve been waiting for.
Available this week is the new PSN game Crescent Pale Mist which requires you to use ancient magic to save the world from certain annihilation. While there’s no demo or trial to go along with it, there are demos for Apache Air Assault and CSI: Fatal Conspiracy.
If you fancy those nifty dynamic themes then you should definitely cruise down to the theme section and check them out. Nine new themes grace the store today with six of them coming in dynamic fashion. Along with the overabundance of themes, there’s also 22 new videos to watch, including a new episode of Pulse and The Tester.

[LBP2 Brush] It’s certainly no secret that LittleBigPlanet 2 is one of our most anticipated games here at the Attitude Towers. Every time we get new information or a new trailer we can’t help but dance around in excitement. Displaying yet another one of the cool tools you’ll have at your disposal, Media Molecule has released a trailer that revolves around the ‘creatinator’. Click the link to see it.
Fresh off the heels of our comprehensive Dead Space 2 multiplayer coverage, we’ve got another small tidbit of goodness to share with you. It’s a new trailer titled ‘lullaby’. Ironically enough, after watching it, you probably won’t be sleeping any time soon. Click the link to see it.
We all knew Fallout: New Vegas was going to be a smashing success but none of us had really seen sales projections for Bethesda/Obsidian’s new post-apocalyptic shooter. Well apparently it’s selling well… extremely well. Click the jump to read more.
A couple of years back, Sony announced that they were making a new bluetooth headset built specifically for the PlayStation 3. We all let out our voice of approval because using random bluetooth headsets with the PS3 can be a bit of a pain. Now, Sony is coming back around again with a redesigned version of the headset we love so much. Click the link to see it.
Are you a proud owner of the PlayStation Move? If so, then you’re likely already aware that Sony has released a pretty awesome product to the market. So awesome that people are apparently eating it up, which is giving Sony plenty of reason to brag about the results. Click the link to see those results in great detail.
If you’ve been around the site for very long, you know that we pride ourselves on bringing you the latest and greatest PlayStation 3 coverage that we can. Unfortunately, the fact that we do all this for charity sometimes gets lost in the shuffle of things.

Have you ever been sitting at your boring work cubicle on another bland Monday and thought to yourself, “Man, I really wish I could just start shooting at people with a gun?” If so… then you should probably seek professional help.

Do you ever wonder what the staff of PS3 Attitude does when they’re not busy bringing you some of the best quality PlayStation 3 coverage on the web? Well wonder no more because we’re about to show you.
For our money, Zen Pinball has been the best pinball game up to now on the PlayStation 3 and we’ve been lucky that they continually support it with new tables. Following up on the release of the Mars offering, we now have the Paranormal table to sink our teeth in to. So how was it, we hear you ask?
Unlike our GranTurismo 5 news, you don’t have to hold anything for this. No, this news is not exactly unexpected but it is unfortunate. It seems the second of the two major basketball titles has been officially canceled this year. Click the jump to read more.
In case you missed it, the world almost imploded for a bunch of PlayStation 3 gamers when there was a delay in publishing the store update… or at least that’s what you’d think if you went over the PlayStation Blog. Indeed the update was a few hours late but it’s nothing to lose sleep over. It’s all updated and ready to go now for your purchasing pleasure. So what do you have to look forward to?
If you’re a Plus member, you have the God of War Collection full game trials to play (non Plus Members still get the games but not the trial) as well as a new mini titled BreakQuest and a few other odds and ends things.
Plus members and regular members alike have episode 25 of Qore to download, as well as the new action/strategy game Hoard. If you cruise over to the demo section, you’ll find demos for Rock Band 3, Aqua Panic HD and another Split/Second demo.
There’s far more to see and purchase beyond that but we’ll leave the browsing to you. Be sure to head down to the comments section after seeing the complete list and let us know what you’ll be getting.
