Prey 2 is being developed by Humanhead Studios, and published by Bethesda. Click the "see more" button to view the trailer. (more...)
Good news for PS3 owners who fondly remember or recall the 2003 cult classic adventure game Beyond Good & Evil. Not to be outdone by Microsoft, Sony has announced that the Playstation 3 will get an HD treatment of the game giving PS3 owners what Sony calls "...the best version of Beyond Good & Evil yet." featuring improved visuals and sound. Specifics on the exact release date are mum, but Sony expects the title to be available on the Playstation Store this May.
For the uninitiated, Beyond Good & Evil was developed and released by Ubisoft back in 2003 on the PC, Playstation 2, Gamecube, and Xbox. The title was highly regarded by critics and gamers alike garnering a metacritic score of 87%. Despite the high praise and cult like following, Beyond Good & Evil did not sell well leaving it to be labeled a commercial disappointment much to the chagrine of the game's fans.

Welcome to New Vegas! Home to bright city lights, life on the edge and game bugs! It is a place where the strong survive, but only the cunning thrive. Obsidian has captured all of these things outstandingly in this latest installment of the post apocalyptic series, which has both captured out hearts and led us to a seemingly unreasonable about of disappointment. In this review we will cover all of the content that makes, and breaks, this game.
With the release of Fallout: New Vegas knocking on the doorstep of gamers everywhere with its Tuesday release date, I would like to give you a preview of what is to come in the newest installment of this epic series.
A name and release date we already knew for Treyarch's next iteration to the Call of Duty series, but what we didn't know (for sure at least) was the when and where the game will take place. Gametrailers TV had their big reveal Friday night with the debut trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops, and while there were many hints indicating a Vietnam era war game, there were also some more modern elements thrown in than we expected. Take a look for yourself below.

Disney Interactive wants your next street race to be utterly ridiculous, and to give you a taste of what Split/Second's high octane, explosion filled action has to offer the studio has released a demo of the game's airport track, the very same one used to showcase the game at major industry events. The demo is currently available exclusively for the Xbox 360 (Xbox Live Gold Members only) with a PS3 demo arriving May 11th.
Blackrock Studio focused on filling Split/Second with huge bangs and whistles by letting players trigger Hollywood style explosions that change the nature of the track and throw their opponents off Kilter. The studion also worked on Pure which was a bit of a sleeper hit when it released, and if nothing else provides some solid reputation for the developer in making high quality, fun racing titles. The demo is around 800 megs so you should definately check it out until the game releases May 18th.
The update itself is said to "prep" the PS3 for 3D gaming which is a feature intended to be introduced in the future as in, you know, not now but later. At least this gives you some time to save up a few bucks for that brand new 3D TV you'll need to play your games with the added illusion of depth perception.
To catch you guys up on recent Sony news, a firmware update was announced that would enable 3D gaming on the Playstation 3 and was planned to go live sometime in June. A few select titles including Wipeout HD, Super Stardust HD, PAIN, and Motorstorm: Pacific Rift would feature the 3D update and other titles the likes Killzone 2, Little Big Planet, and Gran Turismo 5 were either rumored or hinted at. What the update doesn't let you do is watch 3D blu-ray movies.
Will 3D Blu-ray playback ever make it to the PS3? Yeah, probably. With the industries push to have more 3D television sets in consumer homes it would be invaluable to have a major video game console sport the new feature. As for more games sporting 3D other than the aformentioned? Can't say too much on that currently but expect Sony to be throwing all sorts of news around when the update hits this June.
Despite some grievances with a linear design and a plodding first twenty hours Final Fantasy XIII is quite a success. According to an NPD report Final Fantasy XIII has sold roughly 1,321,000 copies state side with the PS3 version of the game outselling the Xbox 360 counter part nearly two to one. Since there are some differences between the platforms, mainly the use of multiple DVD's and a lower resolution overall on the Xbox 360 version, its not really all that surprising.
Generally, the likely purchasers of the Xbox 360 version of FFXIII are either those who only own an Xbox 360 or multiplatform owners prefering to throw their support behind Microsoft's console for personal reasons/incentives, such as raising one's gamer score. Aside from these suppositions there is thorough and undisputable evidence that the Xbox 360 version of the game is not of the same quality as the Playstation 3. Sure the differences are minor, but gamers who own both platforms tend to be sensitive to these differences, preferring to go with the platform the game seems most optimized for.
