Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus announced for PS3 later this year
Insomniac Games has announced that Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus, the upcoming installment in the long-running series, will be coming to PS3 in time for the Christmas Holidays.
Whilst it harks back to a time when R&C were in their prime, it will be a downloadable title and not a full-blown sequel.
PlayTime: 1st-7th July 2013
Once again, The Last of Us has been at the very forefront of PS3 Attitude’s play time this week and, judging by its four weeks at the top of the UK videogame chart, we’re not the only ones. Also getting some action this week were quirky JRPG Time and Eternity, the surprisingly decent Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut, and great-looking racing sequel Grid 2.
Tales of Xillia 2 confirmed for EU and US
Namco Bandai Games and Hideo Baba, producer of many Tales Of games, has announced that Tales of Xillia 2 will be coming to EU and US in 2014.
This announcement was made at the Japan Expo 2013 which is set in Paris, France.
Dress Lightning up as Cloud in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
Fans have been clamouring for a HD remake of Final Fantasy VII for years, and Square Enix have heard our cries! We have been bestowed with a Cloud Strife outfit for Lightning, exclusive to pre-orders of Lightning Returns.
Although this may not have been what people wanted, it’s certainly a step in the right direction. Plus Lightning is pretty to look at.
The Walking Dead: 400 Days is releasing very soon
Highly anticipated The Walking Dead: 400 Days, which will branch seasons 1 and 2 of the game, will be making its way to PSN early July.
Whilst NA players can expect to have it on 2nd July, EU players will need to wait until the 10th.
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.
