So-called gaming ‘innovations’ normally disappear after a few short months, but occasionally they strike a real chord with players and stand the test of time. We’ve compiled a list of five genuine innovations that have truly revolutionised gaming, and show no signs of going away. And no, this article doesn’t include motion controls or instrument-shaped dust collectors.
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!
Last year, PS3 Attitude brought you Pure Platinum, our guide to the best classic games on the PlayStation 3. In the PAL region, if a game sells at least 400,000 copies, then it qualifies for Sony’s Platinum range, giving it a swanky new case and, more importantly, a big price cut.
Since our first Pure Platinum feature, many more AAA games have joined the range, so, with December just around the corner, we thought it was about time we updated the list, in the hope of helping new PS3 owners sort out their Christmas lists.
Goozex, the number one video trading site, has released a list of its most requested games of 2010, and in a surprise twist, three of the top ten are PlayStation 3 exclusives.
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 sixty developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing ten more.
Over on the EU blog, Sony and Quantic Dream have released the first of a two-part ‘Making of’ video (see below) for the upcoming Heavy Rain: Move Edition, which launches on 8th October in the UK and Ireland, 7th October in Australia and New Zealand, and 6th October for the rest of the PAL territory.
Do you plan on getting Move, but don’t want to also fork out on a bunch of new games? Then don’t worry because Sony’s got you covered.
As Move launches today in North America and the UK, we thought we’d compile a list of the games that have already been patched with Move functionality. We’ve also included information about where you can get the patch from, and other useful details.
Sony and Quantic Dream have just announced the release date and other details of Heavy Rain: Move Edition, as well as the Move patch and demo.
Heavy Rain is due to get a free patch in a few weeks to add Move support. At the same time, Sony will also be releasing a new Heavy Rain: Move Edition.
However it has been revealed that this edition will contain more than just a free feature.
One of the biggest Move supported games this year is Heavy Rain, and today Sony published the first official screenshots for the title to show how the Move support will work.
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.
Sony has unveiled a strong line-up for this year’s Eurogamer Expo, which is set to take place at Earls Court, London, from 1st to 3rd October.

The Chronicle Taxidermist DLC for Heavy Rain was released back in April, it was set to be part of a series of prequels that delved back into the past of the various characters. These plans were put on hold so the team could work on PS Move and it’s unlikely that they’ll be made in the future due to time constraints.
It seems like only yesterday that Quantic Dream smashed right through our expectations with the phenomenal Heavy Rain. We, like many others, looked past the faults and savoured the amazing experience that laid beneath.
Sadly it looks like our hopes of returning to the game’s world have been washed away. What? You seriously thought we had run out of water related puns?
Gamers are said to have active imaginations, which is a good thing because they’re going to need to continue using them in the future. Yes, Vivid Video, the world’s largest distributor of adult entertainment, has run into a brick wall in their attempts to get their mature content streaming on the PS3. Sony, didn’t you claim that the PS3 “only did everything”?
If you loved Heavy Rain as much as we did, then you’re probably wondering where the action figures are at. Now its Heavy Rain’s turn, but there’s a catch.
UK’s Advertising Standards Authority has dismissed claims that the TV advert for PS3 exclusive Heavy Rain is offensive.
If you ask us there are plenty of more patronising, ridiculous adverts out there to get worked up about than this one.

Well, Belgium mag Chief have confirmed that Heavy Rain will indeed be using the PlayStation Move.
