Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few weeks, you’ll know that E3 2013 is now upon us. We’re expecting a truckload of big game announcements, so it’ll no doubt be difficult to keep track of everything that’s going on. But don’t worry; PS3 Attitude’s dedicated E3 news hub is here to help!
With the next console generation very nearly upon us, next week is surely destined to become the biggest E3 since 2005. Quite clearly, Sony’s focus will be on making sure they present the PlayStation 4 in the best light possible, but there’s still plenty to look forward to seeing on PS Vita and even PS3 too. Here are the PS3A team’s hopes and expectations for E3 2013!
In the days of the PS2, if you asked me what my favourite videogame series was, I almost certainly would have said Ratchet & Clank. It’s somewhat depressing then, that the last couple of R&C games seemed hell-bent on destroying everything that was good about the series. This is one disillusioned fan’s take on the revered rise and unfortunate fall of Ratchet & Clank.
London Anime Con is a two-day event that takes place on June 20th and 21st and brings the best of Anime, Cosplay, Manga, Karaoke, TCGing, Video Games and J-Culture to Islington, London.
We’re pleased to announce that we have partnered with London Anime Con to raise money for GamesAid with a dedicated ‘Gamer’s Day’ featuring a number of fundraising events throughout the convention. These include ‘donate-to-play’ areas, a cosplay competition, and a GamesAid Charity Auction.
Sony is aiming to have the PS4 everywhere by Christmas, judging by their advertisements. Many people were confused by their reveal on the 20th February when they stated PS4 would be releasing in 2013, as they never stated a region, but it seems we were supposed to interpret it as worldwide after all.
Terraria is a big game with a simple concept – survive. This is done via creating shelter, collecting materials and fighting off monsters who are more than ready to attack you the moment you’re off-guard. Although many people compare Terraria to Minecraft, and the resemblance is easy to notice, does it stand on its own two feet?
Yesterday evening, Sony announced the future of Gran Turismo at the franchise’s 15th Anniversary event at Silverstone, the home of the British Grand Prix. It turns out that its future is in Gran Turismo 6, which (as has been widely reported across the internet over the last few weeks) is coming to PS3 this winter.
Persona 4 Arena sees characters from Persona 4 and 3 return in a crossover fighting title to solve the case of the returning Midnight Channel, the place where the events of Persona 4 took place. With the return of the Investigation Team from P4, several characters from P3 and Arc System Works’ ability to make an in-depth and immersive fighter, can P4 Arena compete with the best of its genre?
PS3 Attitude is growing again, and we need great writers to join our team.
It is that time. Time for us to announce the final three PS3 Attitude Awards; the Editor’s Choice, Developer’s Choice and Game of the Year. Are you ready? Strap yourself in…
Last month we asked you, our dear readers, to vote for your favorite games of 2012. Categories ranged from Best Developer to Best PS Vita Game and the votes were as diverse as the games themselves. We’ve gone and tallied up all your votes and we are pleased to announce the winners of this year’s PS3 Attitude Awards!
So without further adieu…
The PlayStation Vita is no stranger to fighting games. In the last year we’ve already seen the likes of BlazBlue, Mortal Kombat, PS All-Stars Battle Royale and Street Fighter all appear on Sony’s handheld console. So does Dead or Alive 5 Plus have what it takes to compete?
A warrior’s journey is never truly finish and although Kratos has conquered Mount Olympus and toppled the gods, there is still much to be told. God of War: Ascension chronicles the beginning of Kratos’ journey as he breaks his blood oath with Ares and vows vengeance on the god of war. It’s an act that draws the wrath of the three Furies, the guardians and enforcers of punishment on those who disobey the gods. Not one to stand down lightly, Kratos does what he does best; kill everything.
Has Kratos ascended beyond the status of a god or does his latest venture sink to the depths of Hades?
Payday 2 is the forthcoming sequel to Payday: The Heist, the co-operative first-person shooter that made you the bad guy, attempting to rob from the rich to give to yourself. PS3 Attitude were invited to a preview of the altogether bigger and broader ‘rob-em-up’.
Tomb Raider is one of those rare videogame franchises that has permeated into mainstream culture; and yet in the last decade, the series has struggled to keep up with similar action/adventure titles. In January, Ninja Theory showed exactly how to reboot a classic videogame series with DmC: Devil May Cry, so has Crystal Dynamics been able to do the same for Tomb Raider?
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a new title that looks to follow in the footsteps of the likes of The Unfinished Swan and Journey, combining a bite-sized slice of karmic game-play with an unusual control mechanism. PS3 Attitude were invited to see the game and meet the man behind it.
In all the excitement of Sony’s PlayStation 4 reveal two weeks ago, it’s easy to forget that we still have several months’ worth of PS3 games to look forward to! We’ve already seen the likes of DmC: Devil May Cry, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Tomb Raider (to name a few!) this year, but those games were merely the tip of the iceberg of what’s still to come.
Ubisoft today confirmed that the next title in the Assassin’s Creed franchise will be called Assassin’s Creed IV: black Flag and revealed the first piece of promotional artwork from the game. It features a new assassin dressed in the familiar white hood brandishing a flintlock pistol and cutlass.
Sony just announced the PlayStation 4 at their “Future of PlayStation” event in New York and the details confirm some long standing rumors as well as reveal new and exciting features of the next generation console.
