A new Mirror’s Edge game was announced today at EA’s E3 press conference, pleasing many gamers who were hungry for the next parkour title developed by DICE. Many thought it may have become vapourware but EA have confirmed that it is definitely coming… when it’s ready.
While some franchises simply refuse to go away, others seriously struggle to make the leap into multi-game territory. This can be for a number of reasons, but usually comes down to poor sales, regardless of how popular the game is among those who played it. This week, we’ve been discussing the likelihood of whether or not we’ll see a sequel to five of our favourite PS3 games.
BAFTA Games last week hosted a Game Writers Panel in London, during which experienced writers Edward Stern (Brink), Rhianna Pratchett (Mirror’s Edge) and James Swallow (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) covered a variety of topics on the subject of narrative design.
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.

We love a deal here at Attitude Towers which is why every week we not only bring you our four favourite bargains, but also a list of any other great value titles we’ve spotted.

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.
Gameplay, graphics, storyline; these have always been the defining element in video games. Not to be outdone, the score of a game is becoming equally important.
Below are some of the games that have left lasting impressions, sometimes even more so than the gameplay itself. Rhythm games, such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band, are not included as they revolve around music, and let’s face it, we already know how awesome their soundtracks are.
Thanks to our friends over at The Sixth Axis, and tipsters TheDeathAvenger and stefhutch20, it appears that the Pure Time Trials DLC for vertigo infused Mirror’s Edge has suddenly jumped from the lofty price of Â£6.99/â‚¬9.99 to zero.
You may recall how we applauded EA last year for taking a small step away from the safety of sequelitis and investing in new IPs such as the chilling Dead Space and the free-running spectacle of Mirror’s Edge.
Both games, received well by (most) critics and (nearly all) gamers alike, now have the opportunity to see what life is like on the other foot with the previously announced Visceral Games developed follow-up to Dead Space now joined by the inevitable – Mirror’s Edge 2.
Sick and tired of free running though the city? Well then perhaps the latest downloadable content for Mirror’s Edge will peek your interest.
After a small delay in February, we finally have the aptly named Pure Time Trial Map. It features 9 fast paced courses that will test all of your skill and speed. These courses are just as visually beautiful as the game. With vibrant colors, all courses float above the deep blue sea so you better watch your step…
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?
PS3 Attitude proudly presents an interview with Tom Nally, a student in the UK who could well be the Molyneux, Miyamoto or Ueda of tomorrow. We grilled Tom about a host of things, from emotional music right through to where the industry needs to pick up the slack.
We all know that the Mirror’s Edge Pure Time Trial Pack was coming on January 29. What we didn’t know is what else we would be receiving with that pack. Six shiny new trophies will be up for grabs come the end of January. Free running enthusiasts will have to perform some fancy dance moves as well as be quick on their feet if they want to earn bragging rights.
Hit the jump for the list of what’s included…
Come January 29, you will be able to download the DLC time trial pack for Mirror’s Edge. You can own all maps for the price of $10 (Â£6.90) and for those of you who feel that is a bit pricey, remember, PS3 owners get an exclusive map for free. That’s right, nada!
According to EA CEO John Ricitello, the company is happy with it’s improved metacritic scores. The number of games with scores of over 80 jumped from 7 last year to a mighty 17 this year.
But is that good enough for the lofty expectations of EA? No, nein, nacht, non and nei. They want things to be even better in the new year, and have some plans as to how to make that dream a reality.
