The Pinball Arcade delayed until 11 July for Europe

Did you notice that the European PlayStation Store was missing the DLC table packs for The Pinball Arcade for PS3 and Vita? As it turns out, Farsight Studios made an announcement on Facebook informing fans of an unexpected, but welcomed delay. Since when are delays welcomed?

Death alive and thriving in the latest Darksiders II trailer

No longer flying under the radar, developer, Vigil Games’ Darksiders series looks to make a splash this August with the release of Darksiders II. Having already done a tour with War, Darksiders II shifts focus onto his slightly more cantankerous horseman brother, Death.

See the angel of dark and light in action as he stems a tide of demons who’d like nothing better than to have at the flock of church goers cowering inside their doomed sanctuary.

5 sequels that should never have been made

Introducing a new weekly feature, in which PS3 Attitude takes an irreverent* look at the world of gaming. Today we’re discussing five sequels that, if we had our way, would never have seen the light of day; although, in a way we’re glad they did, because otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to write this article.

*At least 37% of the following is probably incorrect.

Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad gets budget priced release 26 June

Robb Rinard, the creative director for 2XL Games, posted on the PlayStation Blog earlier today that Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad is coming to PS3 via the PlayStation Store this Tuesday, 26 June at the low, low price of $9.99. Fancy kicking up the dirt on some hairpin turns in a sport buggie?

“Cross-Buy”content for WipEout HD and WipEout HD Fury coming to WipEout 2048

When Sony introduced the Vita, one of the touted features of the device was the ability to have some connectivity between it and the PlayStation 3. Whether it be engaging with console players while on your handheld or transferring saves between the two for quick pick-up-and-go gameplay, it looks like things have gotten even better. WipEout 2048 will have the ability to use DLC from WipEout HD and WipEout HD Fury via a feature called “Cross-Buy”.

20 games to sign off PS Vita’s first year

PS Vita was tragically undersold by Sony during their E3 keynote speech. An early leak spoiled the Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation announcement, so our only “surprise” came when we got a title for an already announced Call of Duty game. Oh, we got a logo too.

We’ve scanned the list of confirmed upcoming games. Here are some of the most noteworthy

20 minutes of Dead Space 3 gameplay

EA’s 2012 E3 showcase was amassed around new iterations of publisher’s biggest and most successful franchises. From relatively new (Crysis 3) to unfrozen from carbonite (SimCity), Electronic Arts CEO, John Riccitiello made it abundantly clear that the publishing giant would indeed focus on strengthening an already proven stable of franchises. Among EA’s prized assets is Dead Space and the forthcoming Dead Space 3.

What wasn’t shown at E3 however was this rather large chunk of Dead Space 3 footage which serves as the first real close-up we’ve seen of the third installment in the survival/horror series. Steve Papoutsis, vice president and general manager of Visceral Games would like to take you on a tour of some of the new aspects you can expect when Dead Space 3 makes its way to store shelves. Including the polarizing addition of 2-player drop-in/drop-out cooperative play.

Vita? I don’t need no stinkin’ Vita! It’s still PSP for me

As much as I’d like one, unfortunately there’s no way I can justify, let alone afford, getting a PS Vita right now. Instead of looking upon owners of Sony’s latest handheld console with envy (well, to be fair I’ve been doing that too – obviously), I decided I would simply dust off my old PSP.

E3 12; Tomb Raider preview; a dark and grittier Lara

Last year, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix wowed us with a darker and grittier Lara Croft than we’ve seen before. Rebooting the franchise to before Lara was the gun touting, ass kicking heroine we’re familiar with, Tomb Raider depicts a fragile girl who is thrust into danger and must survive at any cost. While we weren’t able to go hands-on with the game, we did get to see a lengthy gameplay demo that expanded on what was shown during Microsoft’s press conference.

E3 12; PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale preview; much more than just a Smash Bros. clone

When PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale was announced, people were quick to dismiss it as just another Smash Bros. clone; after all, it does feature many of PlayStation’s most notable franchise figureheads battling it out in an arena-style fighting game. After going hands-on with the game this past week at E3, we’ve realized that while it may appear similar to Nintendo’s brawler, it’s an entirely different beast.

E3 12; Dead Space 3 takes the dead out of space and onto the planet Tau Volantis

Dead Space 3 was Electronic Arts big reveal of E3 this year, and the game introduces audiences to a whole new kind of Dead Space. The biggest news is that the game will feature drop-in/drop-out co-op, pairing Isaac Clarke with the newly introduced John Carver. Now that you’re no longer alone, questions arise as to whether or not Dead Space 3 can still deliver the same survival horror atmosphere as its predecessors.

E3 12; 5 big games with something to prove

Unless you haven’t been on the internet for a month, you’ll know that E3 starts in just a few days’ time, so we no doubt have dozens of game reveals to look forward to over the next week or so. Before that though, PS3 Attitude thought we’d take a look at some of the games that have already been announced, and, more specifically, what they need to prove at the expo.

Resistance: Burning Skies composers discuss making a AAA soundtrack for a handheld game

Sony is determined to prove to the world that just because PS Vita is small, it doesn’t mean it can’t offer those big game experiences. This not only applies to controls, visuals and gameplay; sound also has a huge part to play.

PS3 Attitude caught up with Kevin Riepl and Jason Graves, composers on Resistance: Burning Skies, to discuss their approach to composing a score for a handheld game that befits a AAA PS3 blockbuster.
