L.A. Noire – the PS3 Attitude review

L.A. Noire is a crime procedural drama from Australian studio Team Bondi, which is looking to recreate the mood and melodrama of classic Noir films of yesteryear – think Chinatown and L.A. Confidential. But unlike most developers who have looked to Hollywood for inspiration only to find a shaven-headed meathead, Team Bondi has used its lessons to create a game that actually has a cinematic quality.

5 ways BBC iPlayer is now better on PS3

The newly redesigned BBC iPlayer has been live on the PS3 for a few days now, giving us plenty of time to dig through all of the changes (and watch a fair bit of TV).

The new design takes full advantage of HTML5 to create an interface that is “visually rich”. This new design will be rolled out to several BBC iPlayer compatible TVs, set-top boxes and blu-ray players in the future – but for now it’s only available on the PS3.

So what’s so good about the new iPlayer?

FIFA 12 Coverage HUB

PES has a decent level of support, and last year’s showing was actually pretty good, but for most football fans, hardcore or casual, there’s only one football series for them.

FIFA’s success is partly down to shallow reasons: it has a huge marketing budget, high production values, 500 plus officially licenced clubs and 15,000 plus players. But underneath the Wayne Rooney adverts and Sky Sports presentation lies great gameplay, gameplay that claws you back every time for one more match.

FIFA 12 hands-on preview

EA Sports is calling FIFA 12 a revolution, not an evolution, due to the number of changes being implemented this year. It’s not your standard yearly FIFA iteration, that’s for sure.

At the top of the list are several gameplay innovations – including a new Player Impact Engine, Tactical Defending and Precision Dribbling – and each of them add a new dimension to the gameplay, changing completely how we experience FIFA.
