Flower to grace the Vita

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.

5 uses of Sixaxis that DON’T suck

Ah, Sixaxis. Remember that? Sony pushed this motion-sensing technology in a big way before the launch of the PS3, but then Lair came out and everyone decided it was the worst thing in the world. That said, there are some good uses of the Sixaxis out there, so let’s take some time to remember them; to be honest we initially struggled to get to five, but we got there in the end!

5 games that have awesome credits

Staff credits shouldn’t just be a list of names; they should be a reward for completing the game. Unfortunately most titles choose to take the former route, forcing us to make a cup of tea until we can take control again. However, very occasionally, a game’s credits more than justify the time spent getting up to that point, and remind us why we started playing in the first place.

PS3 Attitude’s 20 Days of PSN: #1 – Flower

We have now reached the final entry in our ‘20 Days of PSN’. It’s a journey that began with survival horror title Siren: Blood Curse and featured many gems along the way, such as Limbo, Braid and WipEout HD. In at #2 came Q-Games’ physics-based puzzler PixelJunk Shooter, and it takes something special to out-do that. So without further ado, let’s introduce Flower, the best of PSN.

Welcome to PS3 Attitude’s 20 Days of PSN! [Updated with full list]

The PlayStation Network has come a very long way in the last five years.

Believe it or not, there was a time when merely a handful of games were available on the PlayStation Store, and only a fraction of those were actually worth playing. However, nowadays, Sony’s online service is full to bursting with quality titles that have no doubt had your virtual wallet begging for mercy on more than one occasion.

PS3 Attitude’s Top 100 Developers – Part 9

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.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be revealing our one hundred favourite developers, and believe us when we say that there are some incredibly talented teams included. We’ve now revealed eighty developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing ten more.

Batman comes top at the 2010 BAFTA Video Game Awards

Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum beat off strong competition from Uncharted 2: Amongst Thieves to win the best game category at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards. Rocksteady’s portrayal of the Caped Crusader also took the award for best gameplay. Isn’t this award just further proof that Arkham Asylum is not only the best Batman game, but also the best ever superhero game?

Innovation in Games

With the release of Heavy Rain this week, I thought I’d revisit some of the most innovative games that have graced the PlayStation 3 in the last few years.

Nowadays, it feels like every other game is a direct copy of Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto, so it’s refreshing when a game pushes the boundaries and pioneers something which is genuinely new.

Flower developer’s new game “larger” and “more challenging”

If you’re looking for a good read with your coffee and Twitter feed this afternoon, we highly recommend Brian Ashcraft’s piece on Chen Jenova and studio extraordinaire ThatGameCompany over at Kotaku.

The article covers the precocious Jenova and how we started out on the long road to game development along with an intriguing insight into how ThatGameCompany approach the tricky topic of ethics and gaming.

Other interesting tidbits found in the article include talk of the studio’s third in their three game deal with Sony. Having already impressed us with fl0w and what we like to deem “yoga for the eyes” Flower, Chen reveals the team are hard at work on their next challenge.

Flower for Valentine’s Day…

Simply beautiful, and certainly one of this particular author’s most anticipated releases for 2009, Flower has got a release date; 12th February.

Although we haven’t been told what price Flower will go for, we’re pretty sure it’ll be cheaper than a dozen real roses and might just convince your other half that the PlayStation 3 really is value for money. Want to see what I mean? Video after the jump…
