Dear friends of PS3 Attitude,
Do you hear that sound? It’s the sound of PS3 games being unwrapped in houses across the world. People are waking up to Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3 and other things with 3 in the title. Some are even finally joining the club by getting their first PS3.
It’s also the sound of Team Attitude shouting out a loud and cheerful merry Christmas to our many friends out there. You all know who you are and we hope you are all having a tip-top day.
At this year’s E3, 46,800 industry professionals, journalists, retailers and analysts arrived in LA to experience the videogame industry’s biggest event of the year, and with over 200 exhibitors promoting their latest games and hardware, this year was arguably the biggest ever.
We cannot offer you a complete guide to E3 2011 (that would require writing a book), but we can give you this neat list featuring 10 thing that caught our attention during this year’s show. We had great games and impressive hardware on show and a lot of stuff happening in-between. Enjoy.
Call of Duty used to shock gamers with its nuclear sized surprises and intense, action-packed gameplay; however, the series has become very formulaic, due to the number of sequels and the dead-end nature of escalation.
Everyone knows what to expect from Modern Warfare 3: you’ll face more soldiers, get knocked over by more blasts, be funnelled down more corridors and there’ll be even more on-rails sections. It’s so predictable, but people still get excited about new Call of Duty games, including us. That’s just the CoD phenomenon.
The first-person shooter genre is one of the most dominant of this generation. The success of Call of Duty alone is staggering. Back in late December, Activision announced that Black Ops had surpassed $1bn in sales and that over 600m hours had been logged playing the game. The game is still topping the charts today. Call of Duty isn’t the only franchise flying the flag for first-person shooters either; there is also much fanfare for Killzone, Battlefield, Medal of Honor and Resistance, to name just a few of the big hitters.
Modern Warfare 2’s Stimulus Package contains five new multi-player maps, two of which have been reused from the first Modern Warfare, and it’s retailing at a pricey £10.99. This surely falls into the “I want, but not at that price” category. Right? We maybe not…
We have never doubted Final Fantasy XIII’s credentials as an RPG, it’s never crossed our minds to do so. After all, the series it belongs to is widely regarded as one of the most influential in RPG history. But when you put Final Fantasy XIII under intense scrutiny, does it live up to its classification? Daniel Erickson, Writing Director of BioWare, has been telling Strategy Informer that it doesn’t.
What would you consider to be a highlight in your gaming month? Would it be that sequel to your favourite triple-A game or some surprise new IP that’s redefining its genre? If so, April wasn’t good for you.
Bungie has never made a game for the PS3, that notoriously difficult platform to develop for (or so we’re told). Can they cope? Of course they can. With “some of the best engineering folks in the industry on board”, community manager Brian Jarrard believes the developers are well equipped to tame the beast.
Following the whole debacle with the dismissal of Infinity Ward’s former heads Jason West and Vince Zampella, we now know that a further seven employees have now left too.
Activision COO Thomas Tippl has spoke out against the ongoing accusations that his company treat their employees shoddily.
Can you wait a month? Well, you’re going to have to. The Stimulus Package hits the PSN in May.
Welcome to our first ever Deals of the Week. Every Friday we will deliver the best deals for PlayStation 3 games that we have discovered across the World Wide Web.
The articles will be divided into two with two deals for the United Kingdom, and two deals for the United States.
The Sun newspaper has reported a massive increase in game related injuries, whilst outdoor related injuries have plummeted.
Is the video game industry once again being blamed for something it has no control over?
Though it took a little longer than Avatar to reach the same milestone, Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has now passed the one billion dollar mark in retail sales worldwide.
It’s a remarkable achievement, and one only a select few entertainment properties have managed to accomplish.
fourzerotwo has just given word that the newest patch for MW2 is live!
What did we do when games shipped as fixed, unalterable entities, warts and all? Oh yeah, we just got on with it (while usually exploiting every known glitch as much as possible.)
Two recent games that have gone down well with the masses have just received updates. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is now actually Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (1.06) while BioWare’s seminal fantasy RPG Dragon Age: Origins is now up to a mighty version 1.02.
Glitchers, your days are numbered! Infinity Ward has announced that with version 1.06, the javelin glitch will be no more.
While it seems like the PSN will not be banning punks that do the javelin glitch, this is a far better solution anyway.
Contrary to popular belief (also known as: the Internet), Modern Warfare 2 is currently not banned in Russia.
After a media storm over that scene in Infinity Ward’s latest blockbuster, reports of recalls and ban-hammers falling akimbo in the Motherland are, according to Activision when speaking to Eurogamer, spurious to say the least.
Providing the voice of Gaz in the first game, Craig Fairbrass returned to the fray in the latest Modern Warfare phenomenon, this time voicing the enigmatic Ghost.
Speaking during the spectacular Modern Warfare 2 launch event in London, Fairbrass revealed that we may be seeing Ghost again sometime in the future. This time in a staring role.
