Sony are happy to announce today that all six of the worlds biggest movie studios are now providing HD films for the US PlayStation Store.
The latest press release for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has revealed details about the gameplay, a fresh batch of screenshots and concept art.
The game is expected to mark a significant shift away from the origins of the series: for a start, it will lead with the Lara Croft brand in favour of the traditional Tomb Raider title; it’s going to be distributed as a downloadable only title; it’s the first Lara Croft game with co-op; a fixed camera will also be used for the first time; and it’s expected to be a lot more action packed than previous Tomb Raider games, with concept art showing Lara sporting a flame thrower and other screenshots picturing Lara facing up to a cluster of giant spiders.
Age of Zombies is the latest mini from Halfbrick, the Aussie team behind PSN title Blast Off. The game has Barry Steakfries, the badass protagonist, travelling through various ages of time, blasting through hoards of zombies as he attempts to stop his evil nemesis Professor Barry Brains.
There is nothing particularly remarkable about Age of Zombies that sets it apart from the overabundance of zombie games around: dressing the zombies up as mummies or cavemen does not hide the fact that it’s another typical zombie shooter. Yet, Age of Zombies is still an incredibly moreish game that keeps clawing us back for more.
This week’s update to the PSN Video Store brings the good, the bad, and the ugly. No, we’re not talking about the film in this case. We’re talking about Forgetting Sarah Marshall, 2012, and Where the Wild Things Are. We’ll let you decide which adjectives fit with each movie…
Welcome to our monthly feature were we tell the world what’s been happening over the last month at PS3 Attitude.
You probably noticed already, but the PlayStation Network is down. PS3s are acting weird as a result. Skynet activated?
Many of you, including us, are very interested in FirstPlay, the new weekly video magazine that will be arriving on the European PlayStation Store next month for 99p per episode.
The Lost Gamer were lucky enough to speak to Editor-in-Chief of the Official PlayStation Magazine Tim Clark about the new service.
If you answered, “they’re all on this week’s EU PSN Video Store” then you would be correct. Now you can purchase Michael Jackson’s This Is It, Planet Hulk, and Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li all in one place.
Now whether you actually want to is a whole different story…
The 2010 Winter Olympics are currently going on in Vancouver, Canada and in case you missed your favorite event, fear not because the PlayStation Network has you covered. In addition to the Olympic Games, The Tester, Sony’s new reality game show, makes it debut on the Store.
If you’re in the mood for a movie, this week has plenty of those too. Law Abiding Citizen is the big name on this weeks list. With the amount of content the PSN Store is putting out each week, you’re bound to find something akin to your liking.
It seems the battle for brand supremacy is going mobile, as Sony announce that the PSN is coming to Sony Ericsson phones.
This weeks EU PSN Video Store update contains a rather paltry selection of videos. If you don’t feel like purchasing a video but still want to see it, then the renting section is somewhat decent with the likes of District 9 and The Taking of Phelham 1 2 3.
What makes the Fruity Edition of Good Luck Chuck so fruity is beyond us but watch at your own risk. If nothing suits your fancy this week, don’t forget that the Naughty Valentines sale is still going on until the 18th.
Sony Europe has announced that the PlayStation Network is scheduled for another spot of maintenance tomorrow from 16:00 GMT.
From then till 17:30 GMT you will be unable to sign in to any PSN service.
Future and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe have today announced the launch of FirstPlay – Europe’s answer to Qore and the first HD interactive show for gamers in the EU territory – available exclusively through the PS3.
Weekly FirstPlay episodes will be available to UK gamers from March and will roll out across selected European and other PAL territories later in 2010. FirstPlay promises PS3 gamers HD reviews and previews of the latest games and exclusive access to downloadable content.
This weeks EU video content update is somewhat lacking in terms of quantity but hey, if you want to see Jesse Eisenberg aka Michael Cera 2.0 then Adventureland is for you.
There are also two new collections available on the store; The Gangster Collection and Naughty Valentines. While the gangster one is self explanatory, Naughty Valentines includes films like Cruel Intentions, School of Seduction and Fatal Attraction.
The PlayStation Video Store first came to our attention back at E3 2008, when it was simultaneously announced and launched during the Sony press conference.
It took until November 2009 for the Video Store to hit European shores, so we decided to take it for a little more than the usual test drive and see if we could live on just the Video Store for our movie viewing needs for a month.
Here’s the story of what happened…
On Tuesday February 2nd, Lost fans all over the US stared into their televisions like zombies and watched the premiere of its final season. In case you missed it, you can now catch the two hour episode, “LA X,” on the PSN Video Store along with all other season six episodes the day after they air.
Round off this week’s update with Zombieland, Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie and Lesbian Vampire Killers, and… wait, what’s that about Lesbian Vampire Killers?
In an interview with IGN, SCEA’s senior VP of marketing – Peter Dille – has commented on the fact that Sony Computer Entertainment are “actively thinking about” charging gamers to use the PSN. The question we want to know is, what might we actually be charged for?
February is always the shortest month of the year, and so SCEE are cutting the price of some of their minis in Europe – we’re sure the month being small has nothing to do with the decision though.
Sony’s answer to the success of the small games on the Apple iPhone and iPod touch were recently supported under the PS3 firmware update 3.15.
Up until now, the EU PSN Video Store has only allowed users to purchase videos in standard definition and rent in HD. Starting today, a variety of films are available to own in HD including Pirates of the Caribbean, Surrogates, The Proposal and many others.
Better free up some space on your HD. The store also features your usual fanfare of other films to rent and purchase as well. This week, we recommend Con Air, Signs and The Recruit. Nothing beats the classics.
