Sony's dragon-themed aerial combat game, Lair, has become the first PS3 Blu-Ray game to allow full gameplay on the PSP via Remote Connection.
Remote Connection is a feature built into the PSP and PS3 that allows you to access your PS3 via the handheld - but it hasn't previously allowed you to play PS3 games remotely, only access to your stored music and video.
The main reason for the restriction, we expect, was because Remote Play requires the PS3 to stream the video and sound

So the results are in. With two of PlayStation 3's biggest titles now being reviewed around the world, it has to be said they haven't been as impressive as their initial promise suggested. We're talking scores as low as 40 for Lair and 6/10 for Heavenly Sword. How could such massive releases be so disappointing?
Didn't someone look at Lair somewhere along the line and say "Er... this really isn't working"? And why does Heavenly Sword feel so disappointing despite its beauty?

LocoRoco, everyone's favourite PSP game, will treat PS3 owners to its unique brand of bright and cheerful puzzling with LocoRoco Cocoreccho. Cocoreccho will hit the PlayStation Network as an "interactive screensaver", according to Sony.
Cocoreccho uses the Sixaxis controller to influence LocoRoco's tipsy-turvy world, boosting the collect-'em-all challenge by bringing 200 LocoRocos into action at once. As you can see from the first screens, this gives the game a chaotic, boisterous
You wouldn't believe the smiles spreading around here when LucasArts announced plans for an Indiana Jones LEGO game. It's the one series of movies (after Star Wars) that we've been itching to see brought to the world of plastic bricks.
We know the game will cover all three existing Indiana Jones movies, but to date we've only been given a sneak glimpse of scenes from the films that will make the transition to the LEGO world.
So, putting on our dirty brown fedora and pretending we're hot shit
Weve just dismounted our dragon, that we've affectionately named Puff, in order to bring you this exclusive footage from Sonys fantasy blaster. And it's not all about soaring around hundreds of feet in the air.
Taken from the game's first few stages, the footage shows that although there were some aerial scraps to be had, we also got the chance to land our scaly beast on the ground and unleash some fiery breath onto hordes of enemy troops.
Escort missions of some much-needed supplies and an
The recently released Resident Evil 5 trailer is currently causing a storm of debate across the internet after one critic - a single, solitary person writing on a blog - fingered the game as being racist in its depiction of black people as "inhuman savages" and for the fact that a white man in military clothing is employed to destroy them. It's an interesting opinion, certainly, but one that we happen to think is wrong.
While a cursory glance at Resident Evil 5 may give the impression that
Little is known about L.A. Noire except what you can take from the trailer, but it looks like the game is only coming to the PS3. And this isn't the recently revealed PS3 exclusive either...
The game's described as an "interactive detective story set in the classic noir period of the late 1940s," presumably before highways, E3 (RIP) and illegal hotdog vendors that now plague the streets of The City of
Sony has delayed its flagship dragon flight game Lair three weeks, hot on the heels of Electronic Gaming Monthly's shock 6/10 review.
According SCEA the dodgy review has nothing to do with the slip though, instead SCEA producer Ryan Hamlyn says it's "an extra step in QA testing to enhance the community features in the game." After all the anticipation, we sort of wish it was to do with the review criticisms.
He went on to say that "natural challenges that arose while finalizing the offline
LucasArts has unveiled LEGO Indiana Jones: The Videogame (working title) and you can see the first trailer of the game right here.
Developed by Traveller's Tales (the same team responsible for LEGO Star Wars) LEGO Indy will be very much along the same piss-taking lines based on the first three Indy movies (not the fourth). Just in case you didn't buy the box set as soon as it came out, that includes Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom and Last Crusade.
Jim Ward, president of LucasArts,
LucasArts has announced that everyone's favorite professor of antiquities, Indiana Jones, is receiving the LEGO treatment for summer 2008. The game's first trailer shows that LEGO Indy will use the drop-in drop-out feature for co-op gameplay that made the LEGO Star Wars series so enjoyable. But who else besides Indy would we really want to play as?
Here, in no particular order, are eight characters from the Indiana Jones trilogy that we think would make the best “buddies” in the
