It seems that developers have cottoned on to the power of Twitter when used as a free marketing tool.
Eagle eyed gamers scan relevant Twitter feeds waiting to pounce on any hint of announced.
So what does Square Enix have to say?
Reports are in from multiple sources that GAME.co.uk, GameStation.co.uk and allegedly Gameplay.co.uk has been selling ex-display stock as new – with some very unsatisfactory results.
Capcom has announced it plans for an exciting new campaign called “Kill Big for Charity” that ties into the new Lost Planet 2 multiplayer demo.
Cast your mind back a few days and you might remember our report on the BioWare Bazaar – and how it seemed to exclude every country but America.
It seems we weren’t the only people who felt aggrieved – and boy have they let BioWare know about it.
The reaction has been so bad that BioWare bosses have come out to make a public apology.
Team Attitude has no problem with lists – they are normally a sure fire way to get people talking, even if they don’t necessarily agree with what has been put down.
However, we do prefer it if the list makes actual sense. On that note, step forward The Independent newspaper who has recently released a ‘top 50’ games list – in at number twenty two is…the Wii Remote Charging Stand? Wait, what…?
Mixed news from Polyphony today as it is announced that – once again – Gran Turismo 5 is being delayed.
But is there a good reason this time?
When Square Enix and RPG’s are mentioned in the same breath, a multitude of franchises spring to mind.
So when they mentioned earlier this week that a Japanese PSN release was planned for an Action RPG, our speculation meter went into meltdown.
Well the wait is over, the game has been announced – but it’s not what you think.
The season of secrets and mysteries has begun – with a very excitable THQ trying to get us hyped up about an upcoming fighting game.
Can we just have a little hint? Please!
The fans have spoken and Capcom have listened. Say hello to the final box art for Super Street Fighter IV.
It has been announced via Twitter that the PlayStation focused interactive show – FirstPlay – is set to hit UK shores from April 8th onwards.
So what can we expect?
More bad news today as Square Enix confirms that job losses will be hitting IO Interactive – the studio behind the Hitman games.
Is IO Interactive in financial difficulty?
Remember the mystery BioWare countdown we reported last week? Well the clock has ticked down to zero to reveal the BioWare Bazaar.
But what on earth is it?
Michael Pachter is a bit of a funny onion. The analyst from Wedbush Morgan Securities is actually pretty good at his job – that is until he wades into the video games territory.
Yes, over the years his comments have ranged from wildly inaccurate to blindingly obvious – unfortunately many people take them as gospel.
Let’s celebrate some of his best quips.
Famitsu has become an iconic gaming institution. Whether you like it or not, when they comment people listen with great interest.
They have recently listed their top thirty most wanted games – and Sony has done very well.
Working in retail can be a harsh existence. Constant pressure and ever increasing sales targets can sometimes lead to the slight bending of the truth.
However, one GameStop employee has taken things a step too far – is your console about to be fried?
We loved Heavenly Sword. With fantastic visuals, superb animation, excellent voice acting and genuinely likeable characters, Ninja Theory were on to a winner – it’s just a shame the gameplay didn’t live up to the …
Square Enix was smart to release some of the classic Final Fantasy games on the PSN. Final Fantasy VII and VIII have sold like hot baked goods so it’s only a matter of time before IX reappears.
Will it be sooner rather than later?
Two exciting bits of news for people who like to shoot massive bugs in their glowing parts.

Hurrah! Another mystery website/countdown has popped up onto the Internet, causing flapping of arms and scratching of heads.
This one involves God of War though – so colour us interested.
