PS3A PlayTime: 24th-30th June 2013
As you could probably expect from the way the whole PS3 Attitude team raved about it last time, The Last of Us has been all over this week’s play time once again. It’s pretty rare for every PS3A team member to play the same game within a single week (in fact, we’re not sure if it’s ever happened before!), which just goes to show how incredible Naughty Dog’s epic really is.
Indie game Proteus makes its way to PS3 and Vita
Indie hit Proteus, an award winning title previously exclusive to PC, will be making its way to PS3 and Vita this Autumn.
The port is being handled by Curve Studios who have ported Thomas Was Alone, and will be bringing us Stealth Bastard Deluxe and Lone Survivor.
Killer is Dead Fan Edition revealed
Publisher Deep Silver has announced that Killer is Dead, the upcoming crazy cel-shaded game from Suda51, has received a Fan Edition packed with extra content.
With many of Grasshopper Manufacturers games becoming niche, this may become a rare collector’s item.
Gran Turismo 6 Anniversary Edition revealed
Gran Turismo 5 feels like an age ago but we never expected to see the 6th installment so soon. For those who may be feeling bored with GT5, with it’s last-gen graphics*, can now look forward to GT6 and it’s Anniversary Edition.
*May be a big, dirty lie.
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z announced
Namco Bandai has announced a new DBZ game, Battle of Z, which is ‘coming soon’ to Europe.
It has been revealed for PS3 and Vita but sadly, not PS4. Though DBZ on the go is nothing to scoff at!
PS3A PlayTime: 17th-23rd June 2013
One game in particular has been dominating the team’s play time this week. You can probably guess which title I’m talking about, but just for the sake of clarity: it’s The Last of Us… obviously. At a time when the industry is almost entirely focused on next-gen, it’s good to know we can always rely on Naughty Dog to remind us just how good PS3 gaming can get.
Skylanders: Swap Force takes the collectible franchise to a whole new level
The Skylanders franchise has been one of Activision’s most successful brands in recent years, combining fun and imaginative gameplay with the addictive nature of collectable figurines. Both the original Spyro’s Adventure and the Giants expansion created fans out of children and adults alike. Their upcoming Skylanders: Swap Force will attempt to complete the collecting trifecta.
E3 13; PS3A PlayTime: E3 Special
Hello and welcome to the PS3A PlayTime: E3 Special! This week, not only will the PS3 Attitude team be sharing which games have been absorbing our lives over the last couple of weeks, but we’ll also reveal our favourite moments of E3 2013. With game designers making announcements left, right and centre, there’s a lot for us to get through; so let’s get started, shall we?
E3 13; Diablo III runs the gauntlet on consoles
I am not a Diablo player. I never have been and up until this past week, I never thought I would be. The Diablo franchise has primarily been a PC venture, and I’ve always felt more comfortable with a controller as opposed to a keyboard. When Diablo III hits the PS3 in September, and the PS4 at a later date, it will feature a new control layout designed specifically for consoles. After going hands-on with this version, Blizzard may just have made a new fan.
E3 13; PlanetSide 2 coming to PS4
PlanetSide 2, Sony Online Entertainment’s long-awaited sequel to the popular MMOFPS, was originally released as a free-to-play game on PC last year. It was extremely well received by both critics and fans, and Sony has consequently announced a PS4 release for the title.
E3 13; Sony still serious about supporting indie developers
Recently, Sony has made a huge effort in welcoming indie developers onto PlayStation platforms, and the results speak for themselves; incredible original experiences like Journey and The Unfinished Swan, and impressive ports such as Thomas Was Alone and Terraria. So it’s pretty frickin’ awesome to hear that this philosophy will continue with the PlayStation 4.
E3 13; PS Plus subscriptions will rollover onto PS4
Without a doubt, the most welcome news to come out of Sony’s conference was that the PS4 will support used games, and won’t require an internet connection. But almost as good as that was the fact that PlayStation Plus subscriptions will incorporate PS4 games and features at no additional cost.
E3 13; First look at Battlefield 4’s multiplayer
Rather than show a quick trailer and leave it at that, EA has been streaming live footage of Battlefield 4′s online multiplayer throughout E3. Here’s a 6-minute video that includes some of the best moments.
E3 13; Hands-on with the PS4′s DUALSHOCK 4
The PlayStation DUALSHOCK design has remained pretty much unchanged since the original PS1, but the PS4 introduces the newly improved DS4 that adds a touchscreen pad to the face of the controller and a light bar to its top in addition to usual six-axis sensors and rumble feature.
When the PS4 was revealed during February’s Future of PlayStation event, the DUALSHOCK 4 was actually the only thing physically present on stage. It was the first thing we would come to associate with the PS4 and would blend the touchscreen aspects of the Vita along with the precise control of the DUALSHOCK 3. It was different from the design we’ve become accustomed to, and yet familiar enough.
