129w ago - Sony's Latin America Blog Manager Lorenzo Grajales has unveiled the first glimpse of Aliens: Colonial Marines on PS3 from E3 2011.
To quote: During E3 2011, I entered a gloomy room and found myself before Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford. He was there to show off Aliens: Colonial Marines, the upcoming first-person shooter that's scheduled to hit the PS3 in 2012.
When you hear a developer talk about his game with the passion Pitchford demonstrated, you know the studio is on the right track. Gearbox Software is packed with fans of the Aliens films; seeing the game in action, it shows.
The demo starts with the crash of the U.S.S. Sulaco, the high-tech marine vessel from the second film. You wake up to find yourself in a nightmare, surrounded by xenomorphs with no idea about what is happening.

If for some reason you don't know, the PS3 has motion controls as well; unfortunately, developers haven't been able to utilize this feature to the best of its experience. Back in 2002, Sony presented the Eye Toy in which your body movement is the controller.
Although a ground breaking idea, people weren't really feeling it back then. The games weren't that good, or at least good enough when compared to the other PS2 titles. People were more focused on all those AAA titles Sony was pushing.
Sadly, Sony dropped the ball with the Eye Toy; it was not promoted right and it got pushed to the corner of the room. Few developers would make games for it which in the end made for a cheapened experience.
Microsoft is looking to revive this technology now and take advantage of its full potential, just as Wii has done. If Microsoft can implement this feature on 360 it would be great seeing how massive the 360 fan base is. If they...
