Tales of Xillia is finally coming to NA and EU after a gruelling 2 years of being an exclusive in Japan. PS3 has seen a port of Tales of Vesperia, also exclusive to Japan, and Tales of Graces f – which was my game of 2012 – and whilst they are great games they are let down by the lack of character animation.
Xillia is created from the ground up on PS3 and this is why we think it benefits from it.
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.
Another week, another PS3A Weekly Roundup! It’s been a fairly quiet seven days in the videogame industry (presumably all the big publishers are saving their big announcements for E3!), but there’s still been plenty to think about.
Limbo, the dark and gloomy game developed by Playdead, is being introduced to Vita with the aid of Double Eleven. Whilst not many details have been revealed on Vita-exclusive features, it’s safe to assume that it will look gorgeous on the Vita’s LED screen.
Indie-hit Flower, developed by thatgamecompany, is seemingly heading to PlayStation Vita if IndieCade’s list of playable titles is correct. Flower has met critical acclaim on PSN and was followed by the spectacular Journey last year.
Ubisoft has announced that Rayman Legends will be arriving on Vita alongside its console counterparts later this year. It will come with exclusive features which will utilise Vita functionalities.
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.
Although the biggest news of the week concerned a certain other company and their next set-top box games console, there was still plenty to talk about in the world of PlayStation.
Disney Interactive’s Epic Mickey 2 will be making its way to Vita on 18th June in North America. We assume that Europe will see it on the 21st as is standard with many releases and, hopefully, it’ll fare better on the Sony handheld.
LittleBigPlanet is receiving yet another costume pack, but this time it’s featuring our favourite space crew from Mass Effect. It’s nice to see the LBP titles being strongly supported still and we hope these costumes will be compatible with any inevitable LBP games on the PS4, or future games on the Vita.
Last week we were teased with a quick battle between Batman and central villain Deathstroke, and today Warner Bros. Montreal have released the full trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins.
The latest installment in Arc System Works developed fighting game series, Guilty Gear, has been announced as Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-. Yeah, we’re not entirely sure how you pronounce Xrd either, zerd, maybe? It seems as if we’re making up new numbers as well as names now! (Remember Revengeance?)
Ratchet and Clank: QForce – known as Full Frontal Assault overseas – is finally making it’s way to PlayStation Vita. It released last November on PS3 and those who already own it will be able to access the Vita version free due to Sony’s cross-buy deal featured on the title.
Hello and welcome to a bumper edition of the PS3A Weekly Roundup, as the feature moves to Friday evenings. Here is what’s been happening on the site and in the world of videogames over the last week (well, actually the last 11 days).
Velocity Ultra, the Vita version of FuturLab’s critically acclaimed PS mini, was released a couple of days ago on the European PS Store. It’s even free for PlayStation Plus subscribers, but the team isn’t stopping there!
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.
Ninjas, pirates or sailors? You can support your favourite with the unlockable costumes in Resident Evil: Revelations, where Jill, Chris and Keith dress up as a pirate, sailor and ninja respectively.
Rayman Legends, previously a Wii-U exclusive, is making its way to PS3 later this year and will include an exclusive Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag skin.
The skin is based on IV’s main character – Edward Kenway – and will see Rayman don his assassin gear on his adventure to save all the Electoons.
A few weeks ago the newly formed Seaven Studio teased audiences with their debut gaming project, and today the development studio have revealed it to be Ethan: Meteor Hunter.
Ethan has been hit by a meteor and as a result, has been given the power of telekinesis and the ability to freeze time. Using his new-found abilities, Ethan embarks on a journey through 50 levels across three different worlds collecting the fragments of the meteor that hit him.
