Since its international launch almost exactly a year ago, the PlayStation Vita has presented players with a huge amount of entertaining and innovate gaming experiences. Naysayers may complain that the Vita ‘has no games’, but the following nominees beg to differ.

WipEout developers Sony Liverpool had, sadly, been closed recently and it left many fans wondering if would be the end of WipEout.
Earlier this week, SCE Studio Liverpool became the latest in a long line of developers to unfortunately close their doors. It’s no secret that the videogame industry has been hit extremely hard by the global recession in recent years, so PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to remember five of our favourite development studios that are sadly no longer with us.
Studio Liverpool, one of the world’s oldest game developers, is closing its doors after 28 years in the business.
Sony has cancelled all of its projects and staff will be relocated to other studios within the company.
The move has been made by Sony to focus investment on other studios, ensuring resources are available to create “high quality, innovative and commercially viable projects”.
This week, PS3 Attitude has been discussing PSN trophies, or more specifically, trophies that must have spawned from the depths of hell. Everyone loves trophies, but occasionally a challenge will come along that is so ridiculously hard and/or time consuming, you have to think to yourself; what’s the point? These are our picks for 5 of the most evil trophies on PSN.
We are well into the second half of 2012 and feel the need to look back on some of the best releases the first two quarters of 2012 had. The year is usually so heavily packed with AAA releases during the holiday months that it’s easy to forget about the gems that came before them.
Each member of the PS3 Attitude team has assigned a point value of 5, 3, and 1 to their top three games of 2012 thus far, allowing us to create a list of the top five games. In the end we had a list well over 10 games. Here are our top five.
When Sony introduced the Vita, one of the touted features of the device was the ability to have some connectivity between it and the PlayStation 3. Whether it be engaging with console players while on your handheld or transferring saves between the two for quick pick-up-and-go gameplay, it looks like things have gotten even better. WipEout 2048 will have the ability to use DLC from WipEout HD and WipEout HD Fury via a feature called “Cross-Buy”.
Getting the WipEout 2048 gold trophy Beat Zico is hard, but did you think Studio Liverpool would give you that lovely piece of polished digital metal for nothing? No. You need to put in the graft. We can’t do it for you but we think the following five tips will help you get over the line in under 52s.
Two things sped through my mind faster than a Pirahna while playing WipEout HD tracks on PS Vita against a PS3 player: (1) the crossplay worked perfectly, with no noticeable lag or advantage for one format over the other; and (2) it looked much better on the portable.
Back in November, at a PlayStation Access event in London, I sat down to discuss the high-velocity anti-gravity racer WipEout 2048 with its lead designer Karl Jones. Over a loud backdrop of New Order and Primal Scream, he took me through the singleplayer and multiplayer campaigns, showing me the exciting things Studio Liverpool has been working on for this Vita title.
The WipEout series has been a PlayStation stable since its initial release in 1995 and has appeared on every platform in some form. Released in 2008, WipEout HD marked the series’ debut on the PS3 with 1080p graphics, 60 frames per second visuals, and 5.1 surround sound. In essence, it was one of the biggest downloadable titles at its time, with a $19.99 price tag to prove it.
It was worth every penny though as the game featured five game modes, online play, split screen multiplayer and an optional SIXAXIS control scheme. For these reasons and more, WipEout HD is #3 on PS3 Attitude’s Top 20 PSN titles.
The PlayStation Network has come a very long way in the last five years.
Believe it or not, there was a time when merely a handful of games were available on the PlayStation Store, and only a fraction of those were actually worth playing. However, nowadays, Sony’s online service is full to bursting with quality titles that have no doubt had your virtual wallet begging for mercy on more than one occasion.
Game Group today announced a partnership with SCEE to release PS3 titles, DLC and subscriptions to the PSN in the company’s Game and Gamestation stores.
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 seventy developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing ten more.
So far in 2010, we’ve been bombarded with several top quality games and had many interesting topics to discuss. We’ve been very lucky. July was, however, a very humdrum month. Sure, it’s normally dead the month after E3, but we were still looking out for the big releases, but sadly they never came.
Still, we found just enough to keep us interested during the mid-summer shutdown. We digested PlayStation Plus, got to grips with the Medal of Honor Beta and explored Hulu Plus. There were even a few new games announced that left us excited – not to mention an obscene amount of beat ‘em up news. There was also a big announcement here at PS3 Attitude. Here’s the review of the month…
PlayStation Home has just received its most interesting space yet: the WipEout Museum. The space, made to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the game’s release, is a place for visitors to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the iconic space racers’ rich history. According to Sony, “the WipEout Museum blasts away from the perception of a dusty old museum exhibit with a stunningly high-tech offering.”
Sony has set a release date for the first batch of updates to convert existing games into stereoscopic 3D. On June 10, updates for Wipeout HD, Star Super Stardust HD and Mr. Pain will be available on the PSN.
The great news is that updates for Wipeout HD and Super Stardust HD will be absolutely free, the bad news is that you will have to pay ¥300 (£2.26/$3.28 if converted accurately) to play Mr. Pain in 3D.
