Criterion, who made the brilliant Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit back in 2012 and are currently making Most Wanted, have now been given total control of the entire NFS series.
After the disappointment of Black Box’s The Run, this is probably a good thing.
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
After a week of absence, we’re back with another dose of Deals of the Week.
That’s right if you’re desperate to part your money for some awesome games, we got several to grab your attention.
The UK’s position as a world-leading developer of video games is under threat. For years it has been the third largest employer of development staff in the world, with the USA and Japan in first and second position, but recent times have seen the UK overtaken by the Canadian games industry.
Here we are with the third edition of PS3 Attitude’s famous ‘Deals of the Week’ feature. Every Friday we deliver our favourite deals on PlayStation 3 games that we have discovered across the Internet.
Last Thursday saw the release of the Burnout Paradise DLC bundles on the PlayStation Store in North America.
We’re big fans of the game, and so were hoping that Europeans wouldn’t get left out.
Whether we like it or not, downloadable content is now a major part of the videogame industry, and it won’t be going away any time soon. Of course, PC games have had add-ons and expansions for years, but it’s only in the current generation that developers have seriously been able to bring DLC to consoles.
I’m normally completely in favour of some extra content for my favourite games, even if I have to pay for it, but occasionally I can’t help but feel slightly conned after I’ve made a purchase. Three examples would be the games listed below; I’m a big fan of all of them, but regrettably they are also all examples of how NOT to do DLC.
Welcome to the PS3 Attitude Retro Review, where we take another look at titles that were released at least six months ago and discover whether they still ought to garner your attention. This time, it is the turn of Burnout Paradise.
Criterion have released details of a raft of hidden gems in their recently released Big Surf Island expansion for Burnout Paradise.
We’ve spent a little time on the island recently here at Attitude Towers and whilst we hadn’t noticed anything in particular (since we spend most of our time driving everywhere at full speed), we’re certainly liking the new space.
Now that Criterion have told us there’s more to Big Surf than meets the eye, we might have to slow down.
If you’ve been desperate for some new Burnout Paradise high-jinks, you probably already know that, this Thursday, the spectacle we know simply as Big Surf is finally opening up to members of the public.
The island is a veritable playground of super drifts and mammoth jumps and, not that the insignificant matter of price should matter but, we’ve got that too.
We’ve mention the upcoming DLC for Burnout Paradise, Big Surf Island, before, but only now do we have video of the island in all it’s splendid glory. Touting some of the games biggest jumps, it’s no wonder they call it Big Surf.
8 new cars to be won, new freeburn challenges, and new events are just some of the things to do when you get there. Surf’s up!
When Paradise City is full of illegal street races causing havoc in a once beautiful and peaceful city, itâ€™s time to call the cops in – All 33 of them!
The newest downloadable pack for Burnout Paradise is hitting the PlayStation Store this Thursday and we have got the low-down on how much it will cost your wallets.
Let’s face it, Paradise City is a pretty lawless town.
From April 30th however, Paradise City citizens can breathe a sign of relief and be able to safely walk the streets again, the threat of some fool in a beat-up Carson GT tearing over the horizon and into their children a distant and unhappy memory. The law is coming.
In a follow up to our previous story on Sunday, it turns out Sky reported on Criterion Games producing Burnout Paradise 3D a little while ago.
Burnout Paradise is currently available in 3D for PC owners who have purchased special TVs or monitors with 100Hz or higher.
At CES, Sony were demonstrating the power of 3D and showing off its potential. One of the demos that they showed off was a 3D edition of popular racing game, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue.
In a recent episode of Qore, it was a different game that was getting some 3D treatment…
What have we come to expect from the winners of our Best DLC award in 2008? Great DLC, that’s what.
Hot on the heels of the awesome Legendary Cars Pack are the wacky Toy Cars that we can’t wait to get our hands on.
Do you eat, sleep and breathe Burnout Paradise? If you answered yes, then boy do we have news for you. Criterion Games have officially announced the launch of the Criterion Games Network on all platforms.
Now you can stay connected with your Burnout pals wherever you are… provided you have an Internet connection of course.
Game Demos have been part of the industry for as long as we can remember and they offer gamers the chance to try out a game without taking any money from their pockets.
However we ask ourselves, are demos actually bad for the industry and developers?
Remember the Burnout Paradise Legendary Cars pack we told you about?
Well you won’t have to wait very long before you can get your hands on the wheel of a DeLorean doppelganger, as Criterion will be launching the much-anticipated DLC this Thursday.
