Today PS3 Attitude are pleased to announce two new writers are joining our merry band of volunteers.
As you may know, PS3 Attitude is written not only to provide you with the best PS3-related stories and commentary, but also for good causes. Every ounce of revenue we generate is given to GamesAid, the video game industry charity.

We speak to SpecialEffect, a UK based charity whose primary aim is to include people with disabilities in gaming, an industry that, despite perpetuating the concept of allowing people to experience fantastic things, routinely exclude those who would benefit the most from simulation.

Founded in February of 2008, No Fuss Reviews was created by Matthew Riches from the quaint town of Ipswich, UK with the sole aim of providing quick score-only reviews. The idea was born after much frustration from other bloated advert heavy video game websites and how difficult it was sometimes to simply see a score out of 10 for any given game.
As you may know, we at Attitude Towers also take a different view on reviews and review scores, so we’ve watched No Fuss Review with some interest, but the best news is yet to come.
GamesAid has confirmed which charities they will be donating at least £11,000 to as a result of their fundraising, where PS3 Attitude plays a big part in raising money for the organisation.
The Royal Hospital for Neuro Disability, The Willow Foundation, Action for Kids, Special Effect and Winston’s Wish have all been voted to receive the donation, with one final charity still to be announced.
