It has been a particularly brutal and cold blooded week on the verbal battlefield between the warring Microsoft and Sony corporate armies. Both have been busy "giving it all that," back and forth, non-stop, on and on. And while the word guns may have fallen silent for now, our ears are still ringing from the undignified jibes and digs that were fired about.
In case you missed any of the mouthing off - and we know you love it when top brass bitch like a bunch of playground, er, bitches - here's
Following an apparent posting on Sony's official PS3 site earlier today, the interwebs erupted with news that jaw-dropping slash 'em-up Heavenly Sword - easily one of the most impressive games shown at the E3 expo in May 2006 - would hit stores on March 6.
When we checked, though, the date had disappeared from the game's official page, replaced only with a vague "2007." According to Sony spokesman Alex Armour, the March release date is wrong and was posted by mistake. Plans for the game's
Here's a confirmed sighting of The Outsider, the mysterious Xbox 360 and PS3 action game from gaming legend David Braben, the creative mega-brain behind sci-fi classic Elite. And, although it's only a snatched glimpse of movie action, we reckon it gives away a few fact-morsels about The Outsider's unexplained gameplay. Hit the Movies tab above, launch the Video Player and select "The Outsider - trailer 01-11-07" to see the footage.
In light of this fresh footage evidence, we're willing to
Good news for a console currently starving for RPGs, as it looks like Atsuma is branching out in his tutelage. Ubisoft and FromSoftware announced today that their once Xbox exclusive, Enchanted Arms, is making its merry way to the PlayStation 3 early in 2007.
Centering on the aforementioned Atsuma, a student in the field of enchantment, the gameplay focuses on his ability to take control of the wayward golems some dastardly individual has exhumed for malicious intent. 1,000 years in the
The Godfather, last year's movie inspired GTA-a-like actioner, is pushing into new territory this March, with The Godfather: The Don's Edition planned for PS3 and The Godfather: Blackhand Edition aimed at Wii, developer Electronic Arts has revealed.
The Don's Edition comes to PS3 complete with The Corleone Expansion Pack, adding brand new missions and gameplay to the gangland experience currently doing the rounds on Xbox 360, PC, Xbox and PS2. It'll also include SixAxis support - think
For everyone who missed the criminally neglected GripShift on PSP, this new trailer for the downloadable version on PlayStation Network should give you a glimpse of the game's race/puzzle magic. And if you're already a fan, well, you can just show it to your friends and say "Told you so". Hit the Movies tab above to
These brand new screens for gore-fest shooter The Darkness reveal the game's mentalist Otherworld realm - an alternate universe where history has been bent all out of shape by the titular wicked force.
So, as if the game wasn't supernatural enough - hit man Jackie Estacado becomes possessed by an evil, shadow-hungry force embodied by giant toothy tentacles and nasty goblin murderers - the images below show that you won't simply be butchering New York mobsters. Entering The Otherworld brings
Crashing. We're obsessed with the crashing. Ever since we started playing PlayStation 3's MotorStorm, we've spent the majority of the time setting up ever-more dangerous track accidents for our voyeuristic pleasure - as opposed to trying to win races.
Like selecting the bike, speeding it into a rock and propelling the driver into a cliff face. Or purposely holding down the boost button until it reaches boiling point and our jeep explodes in a flower of shrapnel, brake pads and burning rubber.
