Another week, another twitter round-up.
And what a week it has been! We celebrated our 1,000th follower, launched our new SWAG competition and some of us even managed to play some Burnout Paradise with Ducer15! What’s this – actually playing games?!? I know, I know…
Anyway, for the full recounting of the week in tweet-format, read on!
In todayâ€™s world of entertainment, movies and video games go hand in hand like milk and cookies. Thatâ€™s why we would like to introduce to you a new feature entitled, â€œThe Reel Deal.â€ Weâ€™ll bring together the latest and greatest news that bridge the gap between video games and films.
Today weâ€™ll discuss the latest news regarding the Uncharted film, what Uwe Boll said about Alone in the Dark 5, and look at the release of films and their video game adaptations…
The Homerun is back to give you another dosage of PlayStation Home goodness. We’re delighted to say that there is a lot of new content for everyone this week!
Weâ€™ll start this time with the massive European update. As we have said countless times before, we are big fans of Killzone 2 and so were really happy when Sony announced that a Visari Throne room apartment for PlayStation Home.
Welcome to our first ever Search, Win, and Gloat Competition, also known as SWAG.
In our recent trip to visit a little expo named E3, we were able to get our hands on some goodies and what better thing to do than pass them on to our readers. Right? Of course!
Here we are again on a Sunday, rooting about in our Twitter Archives. And who can blame us – after all, it has been a hectic week.
From an interview with Uwe Boll to another round of PSFree Attitude to site crashes and go-slows. Thankfully, everything is back up and running now, but we had some hairy moments there.
The PlayStation Network looks set to expand across non-gaming devices in the near future, and it seems that Sony are looking for the PSN to play a part in helping provide a viable alternative to illegal downloads.
In a recent article by Fortune, extensively detailing the current executive strategies Sony are undertaking, you can clearly understand the importance of the PlayStation Network to the Japanese consumer electronics giant.
Let’s take a closer look at some of their recent statements.
With the recent news that Final Fantasy VII has reached 100,000 downloads from the US PlayStation Store within a fortnight, there was only one question that sprung to our collective mind.
Could a PSOne title from 1997 actually beat the likes of current-gen darlings such as Warhawk, GT5 Prologue and Ratchet & Clank?
There’s only one way to find out…
It’s that time on a Sunday once more, when we get Twitter-happy and shoot the breeze with you about what has happened over the past seven days in the twitter-verse.
The Homerun is back for another week of Home news from around the world. We will give you analysis of what’s happening in and around the virtual hub for the PlayStation 3.
We’re very happy because unlike in the last Homerun, we have a tonne to fit in this week so lets go straight into business and talk PlayStation Home!
The PlayStation 3 has been lacking in the traditional JRPG department since its infant days as a console. With the release of Cross Edge, we were hoping for a break though game featuring five top developers; Capcom, Nippon Ichi, Namco Bandai, Gust, and Idea Factory, after all, there is a certain excitement about controlling your own personal Prinny, Morrigan Aensland, Meu, and Aurica Nestmile army.
In reality, the game is like a complicated calculus equation. The road to the solution can be long and arduous, but upon arrival, there is a certain satisfaction. That, and the fact that there were probably hundreds of times we wanted to hurl our controller at the television screen and call it quitsâ€¦
Another week on Twitter – and what a week it was.
On Tuesday we kicked off our Uncharted 2 multiplayer beta key contest and saw an explosion of new followers. Welcome to one and all.
Nothing really else happened on the feed this week so, if you want to see how the contest went – blow by blow – read on.
E3 is not just about the video games and booth babes. There’s much more to it than that, after all, you can’t hear that sneaky Helghast sneak up without a decent surround sound system or execute a perfect head shot in Call of Duty 4 with simply a Dualshock 3? Sure, it can get the job done but you want to be the best out there, don’t you?
We had the chance to try out Tritton Technologies latest surround sound headset, the AX Pro, which brings the ultimate listening experience straight to your ears. In addition, we also tested SplitFish’s FragFX controller designed specifically for the PS3.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma was one of the first must-have games on the PS3. The graphics were beautiful and the gameplay was spectacular. The game had its fair share of problems too, most notably, the camera angles. It’s good to hear, then, that Team Ninja has addressed this issue for the upcoming Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. The game takes everything that made the original Sigma good, and makes it better.
Many thanks to all our new (and existing) followers who dutifully re-tweeted and put their names into the virtual hat for an Uncharted 2 multi-player beta code.
The following people have now all received codes and should be well on their way towards plundering and co-operating with the best of them.
Congratulations to: attattattack, CrashDude55, Eweor, HempEffect, jonathan_bright, MaKUltra, meiklzh, Moose772 and YoBrenoops.
If you remember correctly, we told you little about our most anticipated game.Well, we now reveal to you the world of you favorite fairytale. In Fairytale Fights, you’ll encounter everyone from the bedtime stories we read as a kid. You play as Little Red Riding Hood, who has fallen out of the spotlight and will do anything to get back to the top, even if that means hacking all of the other creatures to pieces. Do we have your attention now? Good.
As PS3 Attitude continues to grow as a site, it’s quite evident that we’re very much reliant on you, our dear readers, to keep us going.
For the uninitiated, each Tuesday we run PSFree Attitude, a weekly Twitter-based giveaway that sees us hide game and DLC codes for both the EU and NA PlayStation Store throughout the site and invite our Twitter followers to locate and redeem them before anyone else. It’s a fun way of interacting with you guys and we freely admit it’s designed to increase awareness of the site. That said, not everyone who comments on the site is following us on Twitter and are hence automatically excluded from winning. We feel it’s time to address this.
One of the more impressive games on the show floor was the stylized action cinematic adventure Bayonetta. From the creative mind of Hideki Kamiya, the very one who brought us the original Devil May Cry, comes this sexy heroine complete with guns, brains, beauty, and the power of evil.
Along with the many press conferences, game demos, and free t-shirts of E3, there is one more thing that seems to be missing from our coverage. Booth Babes! Yes, we were able to get some pictures of the glorious ladies of the convention (and a few dudes as well). Our favorites are the Ninja Gaiden chicks and Bayonetta. Check out the full gallery after the jump, along with all the other pictures from our experience at E3 2009.
As a special treat to the winner of our Twitter-based PSFreeAttitude giveaway last week, we offered the attentive victor the chance to not only enjoy the fast-paced mania of Inferno Pool, but also to go up against the creators of the game, Dark Energy Digital.
Unfortunately the actual winner was unavailable so, still eager to pit our potting skills against the best of the best, we picked one of our many supportive readers, Ducer15, and prepared to square off against two of the best Inferno Pool players on the planet.
