GC09; New Battlefield: Bad Company 2 trailer; coming out March 2nd

Though made up entirely of rendered footage, we’re not going to beat up EA Dice’s new Battlefield: Bad Company 2 trailer too much considering just how enjoyable it is.

Focusing on the game’s squad-based elements, witness what four men can accomplish when they put their minds together. As you might expect, these four particular guys have a mind for lots of death and destruction.

GC09; Europe’s Video on Demand service launches this November

Announced yesterday at Gamescom (which is pretty much the centre of the universe at the moment – our German friends are so happy) and to much applause, Europe will finally see their own previously promised Video on Demand service launch this November.

Quoting a raft of great titles from the Terminator movies to Batman, new SCEE boss Andrew House (who is not a British guy playing a surly American doctor as it turns out) assured us that great content will be purchasable from the EU Store through the normal e-wallet system.

GC09; Heavy Rain trailer – “Everything I did, I did for love.”

The new Heavy Rain trailer shown during Sony’s conference speech at Gamescom got a lot of tongues wagging among those of us lucky to be there while raising numerous important questions.

Questions like, doesn’t Ethan look a lot like a young Alec Baldwin? Did Quantic Dreams’ David Cage really lose his kid in a supermarket for ten minutes or is he just yanking our chains? And, the most relevant one, where are you going for beers later on?

Thanks to GameTrailers, you too can now check out the new trailer and ask yourself the very same question posed to games journalists at the presentation: how far would you go for love?

GC09; Gran Turismo has crash damage; 1,000 cars

Taken out of the protective garage once more for a new spin at Gamescom, Polyphony’s Gran Turismo 5 is generating a lot of heat over in Germany.

In order to cater for this new attention there has also been an update to the official GT5 web-site revealing some new details of the perpetually upcoming racer.

The big news is that, and you can take this as official, there is crash damage with car deformation and the ability to even flip your ride on to its roof (not recommended).

Dark Void to open up January 12th; new trailer

Dark Void is everywhere here at Gamescom in Cologne with pretty much every taxi you can see plastered with advertisements for the sci-fi vertical shooter.

For good reason too as our friends over at Capcom have just provided the shortest of updates declaring the jet-pack featuring action title for a Jaunary 12th release in NA. Europe can expect to get some empty gloomy goodness a mere three days later.

GC09; Sony motion controller developers’ update

We know that Sony’s E3 motion controller announcement wasn’t the most popular for some of you, but you can’t deny its significance for the PlayStation brand.

Love it or loathe it, at Sony’s Gamescom conference yesterday, a developers’ update video for the controller was shown to the world.

The PS3 Slim Aftermath; Images, Shortages, Backwards Compatibility and the 250GB model

Sony’s megaton announcement yesterday at Gamescom confirming the impending arrival of the PS3 Slim is not even 24 hours old and already we have a wealth of new information, stories and even rumours to wade through this morning.

Here’s a quick round up of what’s happening in a world where the PS3 Slim is no longer fiction, but a stark reality.

GC09; iPlayer coming to UK PS3s; no relation to Apple

No, we are not refering to the next new and exciting product from Apple but the official BBC media player. The iPlayer allows users to stream/download clips, shows, and other features from the BBC. Up until now, the service has only been available on PS3 consoles through the integrated web browser.

Announced at Gamescom, Sony will be partnering with BBC to bring an official version of the streaming service to the PS3…

GC09; Sony Conference, full summary

We’re at GamesCom in Cologne this year, and the first order of the day is to cover the much-anticipated Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Press Conference.

Whilst the rest of the Internet has been awash with rumour and speculation, as usual we at PS3 Attitude have bit our lips (and kept the ‘Drawer of Secrets’ locked), preferring instead to wait for the official word.

And now that word comes to you via our people on the ground, (almost) live from Germany.

GC09; Firmware 3.0 – New Look And Functionality Coming Soon

We are nearing the release of the long awaited and somewhat fabled Firmware 3.0 for the PlayStation 3. How do we know we’re close to see it? Not only it was just announced at GamesCom, but the US PlayStation.Blog released a video update on how the new firmware is coming along with a slightly new look.

GC09; PS3 Slim announced; universal price cut confirmed

We’re still at Gamescom and the wi-fi is a little fuzzy at the moment so, just in case you missed our Twitter feed, we’ll keep this brief.

Sony have finally announced a price cut for the PS3 while also unveiling the oft-rumoured PS3 Slim.

Taking to the stage at Cologne, Sony big-wig Kazou Hirai talked about how Sony have a bright future and how Gamescom is officially “the third major date on our gaming calendars” (after E3 and TGS).

But enough of the pleasantries, Kaz also wanted to touch upon form and certain things “slim.”

GC09; CCP announce DUST 514 for consoles – UPDATED

Showcased today at Gamescom, CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar Petrusson proudly announced DUST 514, a game best described as an FPS MMO with some RTS elements.

The new title will also be connected to the larger EVE Online universe, offering users who may have yet to experience the space opera an insight into just what they’ve been missing.

GC09; Some new CryEngine3 footage

Crysis 2 for the PS3 is going to be one of those games that will either re-invent the FPS, or fall flat on its face. Though it will surely be a pretty game, a lot depends on whether or not Crytek can match their legendary visuals with compelling gameplay and story.

Check out some new demo footage of CryEngine3, the engine that will power Crysis 2, taken by a fairly steady hand over at Gamescom.

First we saw Sony’s new motion controller, then we heard about some new tools for recognising faces, and now… emotion recognition?

I Am Alive still alive on the PS3

Alarm bells went a-ringing this morning when eagle-eyed visitors to the official Ubisoft website noticed that the PS3 had been mysteriously omitted from the list of platforms upcoming survival title I Am Alive will feature on.

Cue frantic phone-calls to Ubisoft and, thankfully, it was just an typological error and the game is still very much planned for the PS3 sometime in 2011.

Insomniac podcast hints at studio’s new game

Insomniac podcast hints at studio’s new game

Broadcasting on the first and third Thursday of every month (so not actually matching with the lunar cycle), Insomniac’s “Full Moon Show” podcast is a way for the studio to connect with its fans, answer some questions and basically goof around for nearly an hour.

Revealed on the podcast is just what Insomniac’s new studio over in South Carolina are up to.

With hints in the past that the new division would be focusing on their own titles, the podcast confirms that the new game is not a Resistance or a Ratchet entry and is “a lot of fun”, if not a long way off.

Grin closes, developers break out and form Outbreak Studios

After numerous whispers through the industry grapevines over the last couple of weeks, the sad news that developer Grin has shut its doors has finally been confirmed.

Posting on their official web-site, founders Bo and Ulf Andersson state that it is with “a heavy heart” that the development studio is now defunct. Though associated mostly with recent lacklustre titles such as Bionic Commando, Wanted: Weapons of Fate and Terminator: Salvation, the studio also worked on the solid action series Ghost Recon and the racing game Ballistics.
