Last Friday, PS3 Attitude attended the PlayStation BetaRooms event and got a peek at some upcoming games, as well as the Move and 3D.
If you didn’t get a chance to attend the weekend, then go to our Flickr page and look out for some videos in the near future. First however, lets take a look at the Move.
“We’re gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse”. That’s what 2K said to us when they invited us to try out Mafia II, and who were we to turn down the advances of a team who had clearly let a self-imposed prohibition and a propensity to stuff cotton wool in their cheeks go to their heads.
The question is, of course, is Mafia II a ‘hit’ in the making?
Top Gun for the PSN is exactly what you think it is. Based on the iconic ’80s movie of the same name you get to fly around as Maverick, taking down the bad guys one missile at a time.
PS3 Attitude were coaxed out of our ivory traffic control tower to get hands-on with this forthcoming PSN title. So, exactly what does this new dogfighting game have to offer?
Hulu Plus for the PlayStation 3 has landed here in the States… or at least a preview version of it has.
In doing so, it has set out to bring a ‘premium’ version of the standard Hulu service you can currently get on your PC’s called ‘Hulu Plus’ – or at least, premium, is what they’d have you believe.
Regardless, going up against the juggernaut that is Netflix when it comes to instant streaming is no easy task, and we recently got some hands-on time with this new service.
So how does Hulu fair?
If you’re anything like us here at Attitude Towers, you remember the good ol’ days. The days back when the PlayStation One ruled the console roost, and that one analog stick the N64 had was ‘over-rated’. Remember those times?
If so, then you might remember a little game called Medal of Honor. If you played shooters back in that era, then chances are you know exactly what Medal of Honor is.
We’re pleased to say that many years later, the franchise seems to be ready to try and take back the shooter crown; a mantel that it has since lost to the likes of titles such as Call of Duty and Battlefield.
Time Crisis: Razing Storm with PlayStation Move controls works exactly as it should but the gameplay itself is just a massive disappointment.
Imagine Resident Evil 4 for Wii. Now imagine Resident Evil 5 for the PS3 with RE4′s control scheme. It’s basically the same experience. However, you will need to buy the Gold Edition since the original will not feature PlayStation Move support.
Mortal Kombat has returned and it’s better than ever before.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is unlike any Tomb Raider game you have ever played. Despite that, there is still a strong sense of familiarity that long time fans will enjoy.
Vanquish has already captured the attention of the gaming industry because 1) it’s being developed by Platinum Games, the studio behind the critically acclaimed Bayonetta, and 2) it’s under the direction of Shinji Mikami, the creative mind behind Resident Evil.
To say people have high hopes for Vanquish would probably be an understatement.
While John Daly probably isn’t as popular as Tiger Woods, the pro golfer has managed to rack up five PGA Tour wins including the PGA Championship in 1991 and the British Open in 1995. Come this fall, you’ll be able to play as John “The Lion” Daly in ProStrike Golf and show off your skills with the brand new PlayStation Move as well.
We went hands-on with the game along with the all-new Move controller at this year’s conference. How did our round of golf turn out and more importantly, how responsive was the motion controller?
Welcome back, Sonic. It’s been a long time.
Third party controllers and accessories tend to be either shoddy imitations of the real thing or souped-up behemoths costing an arm and a leg.
Nyko have been in this business for over ten years now and have created a wide variety of game accessories at lower costs then their first party counterparts. Some are good and some are bad, but the upcoming Raven controller shown at E3 takes things to a new level with its premium status.
Bionic Commando Rearmed was a great remake of a classic game. We wanted more and now we’re finally getting it.
Sadly, GRIN is not developing the sequel since the studio closed down shortly after the retail release of Bionic Commando. Instead, the game is being developed by Fatshark.
Don’t let that worry you though, most of the team that worked on Bionic Commando Rearmed moved to Fatshark. The sequel is in good hands.
We were given the opportunity to try the game out for ourselves. Does the inclusion of a jump button really make that much of a difference?
Killzone 3 was the main attraction at the Sony booth during E3 last week. In addition to the multiple widescreen televisions they had demoing the game, there were a few utilizing 3D.
We got the chance to play Killzone 3, and in 3D no less. How does the game stack up so far, and does the 3D do for games what Avatar did for films? Let’s find out!
Rock Band 3 marks a complete makeover for the entire series; adding more songs, more features, and basically evolving the way the music rhythm game is handled.
We’ve known for a while now that keyboards were coming to the franchise and we got up close and personal with the new instrument in addition to testing out the new Pro mode that let’s you get even closer to your dream of becoming a rock star by teaching you how to actually play an instrument.
This is the moment you’ve all been waiting for; the Sony Press Conference. We’ve already had some amazing announcements come in the weeks leading up to E3 such as LittleBigPlanet 2, Killzone 3, and MotorStorm Apocalypse so what can we expect at today’s conference?

We already covered earlier today and now it’s Ubisoft’s turn. What announcements and surprises can we expect from the makers of Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell? Let’s find out!
At E3 2009 Electronic Arts showed off Brutal Legend, announced the newest EA Sports title, MMA, and had a special appearance by tennis legend Pete Sampras. What does this year’s press conference have in store for us?
