English FF XIII coming within 6 to 8 months, Euro date soon

Yesterday we heard the news that Japanese gamers will finally get their chance to play Final Fantasy XIII on the 17th of December this year.

Now, Square Enix has released a statement on the European release for the game…

Uncharted 2 Beta not the only Multiplayer Demo

That’s right, folks – there’s a new Uncharted Demo in the pipeline.

It’s not just a re-run of that beta demo that some managed to wangle their way into, either.

This will be a fully fledged demo open to everyone, and will available sooner rather than later to boot.

How soon is that?

Japanese PS Store Highlights For September 3rd – Zebras In America

Japanese PS Store Highlights For September 3rd – Zebras In America

We don’t know how it happened (honestly*) but Afrikan zebras have been spotted in America. The sound of hooves are driving us insane. One of the cooler additions of firmware 3.0 were dynamic themes, one of which we saw in motion already (we’ve called it ‘Globetrotting Sackboy’) and was available for purchase since September 1st for a price.

However, ‘Afrika Theme Zebra’ was also available on the 1st in Japan for free. That may explain the penetration of these black and white equids to American soil. This week a third theme is available, PixelJunk Monsters, but you already know all about it. Other than that, Japan’s Store offerings are slim this week. Not even a PSone classic for crying out loud!

SCEE launching £82 million advertising campaign

One of the things we have been saying about the new PS3 and price is that Sony needs to back it with advertisements.

It’s all very well making your hardware more affordable for consumers, but you need to make sure they are in the know.

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.

It Came From Japan #5 – Vagrant Story

Just like Xenogears from last week’s column, Square’s Vagrant Story bucks numerous staple JRPG trends, this time, however, in completely different areas.

One of only eleven games to receive a perfect 40/40 score from Famitsu, and the only PlayStation 1 title to feature in the list, Vagrant Story wowed fans across the globe upon its release back in 2000 and went on to become one of the most loved, if somewhat forgotten, of the many illustrious Square RPGs.

Bionic Commando: Rearmed patched; trophies live

The wait is finally over…for North America at least. Today, Capcom has released the patch that brings trophy support to Bionic Commando: Rearmed.

In order to enable trophies though, you’re going to have to manually delete your current save date and create a new one. Tis a small price to pay for the luminous goblets. So just exactly what trophies are there to earn? Let’s take a look…

Every year a senior industry figure gives the main keynote speech and this time around it is none other than Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai.

His speech is entitled ‘Sony Computer Entertainment’s New 2009 Strategy’, which is interesting in itself sincethe year will almost be over by the time he speaks!

North American PS Store Update For July 16th – Still Going Strong

North American PS Store Update For July 16th – Still Going Strong

Well would you look at that. A very nice North American PlayStation Store update plus a baker’s half-dozen (that’s seven) of ‘PlayStation Network Favorites’ for a discounted price. Notice how it does not read favourites; this is for North America only. We can just feel a whole continent seething right about now.

But for the lucky ones in the ‘new country’ it’s nothing but love from Sony and the PlayStation gang: one new game, one new PSone classic, three new demos, a new Pulse and a bunch of other add-ons and wallpapers to boot.

European PS Store Update For 16th July – You May Not Like This One

Sure, still no Metal Gear Solid 1 or Bomberman, or anything else with ‘weight’ besides the weekly LBP, Rock Band and Guitar Hero World Tour offerings. At least those are not delayed. Oh no, I think I may have jinxed it…

Disney’s Tarzan for the PSone? F-yeah! Themes for the on-again off-again Battlefield 1943? At least you can pretend to play the game while browsing your XMB while cursing EA and DICE. Bonus Mission for The Last Guy? I got it! this update is a clever ploy to get all of Europe to buy The Last Guy DLC in frustration. Is it working? But seriously, The Last Guy rules.

LittleBigPlanet Ghostbusters costumes this week

Bordering on cuteness of an almost criminal level, four Ghostbusters themed costumes will be available for LittleBigPlanet this Thursday.

Priced at $1.99 each or $5.99 for the pack, fans of one of the greatest movies of the 80s (if not of all time) will soon be able to express this ectoplasmic love by decking their Sackboy out as either Slimer, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, a Casper-esque ghost with signature sign or in an actual Ghostbusters jump-suit.

Sony patent Emotion Engine software emulation

Sony patent Emotion Engine software emulation

Rumours of the return of PS2 game support to the PS3 have been doing the rounds ever since the Emotion Engine chip, the actual physical hardware that enables the majority of PS2 games to be played on old PS3s, was removed from the chip-set. We should state that, for some people, this feature is moot. After all, who wants to play PS2 games when an extensive PS3 library of high-def games are available to the discernable consumer? Other people have vast PS2 libraries and would love to be able to retire their atavistic PlayStation console to their own personal Museum of Gaming.

But what of Sony? Where is the advantage of bringing this feature back into the fold? Glad you asked.

The Uncharted 2 beta code contest is over – or is it?

Many thanks to all our new (and existing) followers who dutifully re-tweeted and put their names into the virtual hat for an Uncharted 2 multi-player beta code.

The following people have now all received codes and should be well on their way towards plundering and co-operating with the best of them.

Congratulations to: attattattack, CrashDude55, Eweor, HempEffect, jonathan_bright, MaKUltra, meiklzh, Moose772 and YoBrenoops.

E3 09; Sony’s keynote round-up. The Megaton Edition

When the lights went down in the Shrine Auditorium we admit one simple thought crossed our minds: how are Sony going to top Microsoft’s killer presentation from the day before.

From the new NATAL technology to Milo to the Modern Warfare 2 timed exclusive content, we admit to thinking Sony were going to stumble and let us down a little.

How wrong we were. Sit back and forgive us the staccato nature of its presentation but here’s all the big announcements Jack Tretton and friends bestowed upon us at Sony’s 2009 E3 conference.

New Ghostbusters Video Ain’t Afraid Of No Multiplayer

Watch the new Ghostbusters trailer and get that 1980′s feeling in you. Never mind the readings on your PKE meter, that’s nostalgia filling up your body, not Slimer playing tricks on you.

The video features all new weapons, enemies and the icing on the cake: multiplayer. It also features a very menacing and not so cute looking Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, but we’re trying not to think about him anymore.

European PS Store Update for 16th April – Guten Abend

The chain is broken! After the slim Japanese update and the anorexic Hong Kong update, we are pleased to announce the hefty European update to you. The Europeans. Living in Europe. Or stubborn Europeans living abroad. Or non-Europeans dreaming of warm lagers, ministries of funny walks and dead parrots.

The Bloody Details Behind Splatterhouse

This past weekend there was a little thing called Comic Con in New York. Geeks dressed up as their favorite superheroes came flying in from all over the place. There were also some game developers at hand and MTV Multiplayer got a chance to sit down an talk with Dan Tovar and Mark Brown, producers for Namco Bandai’s upcoming remake of the classic Splatterhouse…
