U.S. PSN Video Content for October 9th – Michael Cera is Michael Cera

This weeks video content update features Michael Cera and Jack Black in their simply average comedy, Year One. In addition to the unrated version of the film, there’s a shaman featurette available in case you didn’t get enough of Michael Cera playing the same role he has in everything else.

In addition to films like Battle for Terra and My Life in Ruins are trailers for Legion and Did You Hear About the Morgans. It’s no wonder Year One is the highlight of this update…

European PS Store Update For 1st October – Brutal Demos For The PSPgo-less

European PS Store Update For 1st October – Brutal Demos For The PSPgo-less

It’s all about the PSPgo and PSP minis all over the world. But for the PSPgo-less crowd (the lot of you we hope) there’s a ton of games for you to sample on your PS3 Phat or Slim. Brütal Legend is the one we have all been waiting for, but there’s also Star Wars, Need for Speed, TMNT (which you can buy) and Up.

Up is a pretty fun coop game for the family. And speaking of family, LittleBigPlanet has a new costume pack featuring characters of a movie that the kids are not allowed to watch. They sure do look cute in sackperson form though. FIFA 10 and NBA 10 get DLC as well, one of which is free.

North American PS Store Update For Septemeber 30th – Brutal Digging Update

The wait for this one was brutal, but well worth the wait. Brutal Legend: The Demo is upon us. We all rocked to Tenacious D with Rock Band, but now you can be the man himself. Jack Black rocks out with his rooster out in the open in Tim “Freakin” Schafer’s Brutal Legend.

But that is not all Digger HD: The Downloadable Game is available for all you digging enthusiasts. We just hope that the multiplayer modes are not full of virtual teamsters slowing everything down. Qore, PSone classics, LBP’s Watchmen costumes, and two Fallout 3 packs round up this very awesome update.

U.S. PSN Video Content for September 18th – Hugh Jackman is a beast

This weeks PSN video content update features People’s Sexiest Man Alive Hugh Jackman as the claw touting mutant Wolverine, along with a few other less notable X-Men characters.

Not only is the film up on the store, but two featurettes and a bonus documentary are there for downloading as well. We do wonder why the film only appears in standard definition and not HD.

Confirmed: Firmware 3.01 is live – UPDATED

News is trickling in here to the Attitude Nexus that the previously promised Firmware update 3.01 (aka “Sorry we broke Uncharted” fix) is now live in some regions.

Details are sketchy at the moment but it appears that the only thing different is the aforementioned game will no longer crash like a drunk monkey driven plane.

PSone Classics: Has Sony Kept Its E3 Promise?

The PlayStation Network has been a huge opportunity for Sony to re-release the classic games that defined the PlayStation era. Unfortunately, for countless weeks Sony underwhelmed fans by ignoring the library of quality games that the PSone has to offer.

During E309, Sony stated that the number of PSone Classics available on the US PSN will increase to nearly 60 titles by the end of the year.

Is Sony on track in keeping its promise? Not only that, but are the games actually ‘classics’?

U.S. PSN Video Content for September 11th – No room for old movies

This weeks video content update is rather lacking in both movies and TV shows with only a handful in each. While new content isn’t flooding in, it’s the classic shows that are making a splash.

Starting today and up until the 17th, the PSN is having a First Season Summer Sale where episodes will be on sale for $0.99.

PlayStation classics: Where are they now?

Throughout the years, Sony has released numerous games onto the PlayStation Store. Despite the growing collection, there are some glaring omissions to the PlayStation 3 experience that just makes me wonder why certain games haven’t been released yet.

Which classic franchises would you love to see make their return in HD on the PS3?

U.S. PSN Video Content for August 28th – This…is…PlayStation!

This weeks new arrivals to the PSN Video Store include action, comedy, magic, and a little bit of mystery. To top off the list is Zach Snyder’s amazing adaptation of the graphic novel 300. Watching it will make you think why is this just now making it to the PSN?

Also near the top of our suggestion list is I Love You, Man staring Paul Rudd and Jason Segal. If you’re a Harry Potter fan then The Order of the Phoenix is the choice for you. If you can’t seem to find a film to your liking, then perhaps one of the hundreds of television shows will catch your eye.

The PlayStation Network is going to have some maintenance work done later today, Tuesday 25th August.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 – The PS3 Attitude Review

Before the Street Fighter IVs and the BlazBlues, there was a little game on the Dreamcast called Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes.

Even to this day, MvC2 is still played in tournaments across the country, and copies are sold on eBay for ridiculous amounts.

Thankfully you no longer have to give an arm and a leg to play this wonderful game…
