With the gaming world talking about Killzone 2 and the pre-orders already at a high level, one has to ask how much Killzone 2 can change the way developers see the PS3 – what you might call ‘the Killzone 2 effect’…
With the game getting so much attention, in some part because of its awesome graphics, you could imagine developers must be feeling the pressure to compete.
Welcome to Cell Yell, a new regular feature at PS3 Attitude where you, our wonderful readers, are the stars of the show.
In this week’s Cell Yell we want you to tell us, via our comments system, the following…
The sequel to the highly popular Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has just been confirmed. Announced as part Activision’s forth quarter earnings call for 2009, Modern Warfare 2 is sure to impress. While we have no details on what Infinity Ward is up to this time around, an executive from the company stated that the game will be the most anticipated for the end of 2009.
Once again, it is that time of year when the video game industry gathers together to find out who has been nominated for a glittering prize.

Straight from the annals of “We could have told you that ages ago” zombie frag-fest Dead Rising has been confirmed as a multiplatform title with the PS3 now being shown some undead love. Eww … that didn’t come out right.
Following the incredible work Brodiesan put into the Games of 2009 series, we have now consolidated everything into a single 2009 PS3 Games Database so you can keep tabs on what is on the horizon for our favourite console.
We’ll be constantly updating the database as the year progresses to ensure it is the one place you can visit to find out what is going on with your favourite games. It’ll also be a good place to hang out if you want to impress your friends with some of the more obscure titles (“What do you mean you haven’t heard of Islands of Wakfu”).
You can access the database from our menu (hover over Calendar)
Leave no game behind. That’s our motto. The Games of 2009 series may be over but the list is most definitely incomplete. Read on to find out what we’ve decided to do to remedy the situation.
Despite all the negative press about Sony’s profits (or lack of) recently, it appears that they do understand that in a down economy you need to flash some marketing cash to help pull yourself up.
And that is precisely what Sony have planned for Killzone 2 – a Â£2m spending spree that will see, amongst other things, the neatest sounding web-based game we’ve heard of for some time.
We haven’t heard of Matt Hazard in a really, really long time. We almost completely forgot about him here at PS3 Attitude. You may remember the original “The Adventures of Matt in Hazard Land”, the ground breaking “Matt Hazard 3D” or the wildly successful and now legendary console game “You Only Live 1,317 Times”.
If none of these games ring a bell, then take a look at this unofficially official guide to the to the world’s greatest game hero ever created. In the meantime, look at what the best game character you’ve never heard of has been up to all these years. Consider yourself warned though, it’s not all good.

One thing is for sure; when it comes to creating LittleBigPlanet content, I’m a newbie.
And when I see levels like Ultimate Pinball Challenge – created by the obviously talented UrbanDevil – it makes me wonder if I will ever generate anything that even comes close to ‘downright average’, let alone ‘ultimate’.
The best thing to do? Let everyone else keep coming up with awesome levels like this one and then play the field…
