32w ago - Square Enix Community Manager Benjamin Bateman has posted up the first PS3 screenshots today for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system!
To quote: Today we come bearing gifts! For all our RPG-loving fans we're excited to bring you the world's first screenshots of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn on the PS3 (Chocobos included)!
In our first PlayStation 3 reveal we wanted to give you a guided tour around the UI and menus. With a wealth of different options and commands at your fingertips at any one time it was important for us to create an elegant UI that is easy to read and navigate.
Taking inspiration from previous games the look and feel of the new FINAL FANTASY will be instantly familiar to long-time fans of the series.
In FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn we've put an extra emphasis on customisation. Knowing that everyone has their own personal tastes, not to mention the need to have a load-out that's compliments the character and role you're playing in-game, all of the UI elements that you see in the screenshots can be enabled, disabled, and repositioned to suit your preferences. Menus are also simple to navigate with the command you're looking for being only a few button presses away.
115w ago - SCEE's James Gallagher has shared some fresh Batman Arkham City PS3 screenshots and details today for fans.
To quote: My flatmate cites Arkham Asylum as his favorite game, and when I got home and told him that I'd been to see it at Warner Bros. London office, he put his fingers in his ears and turned the stereo up. It confirmed something I'd been thinking on the train home: this is one of those games that we're better off not knowing much about.
There's five of us in the private screening room and Dax Ginn, marketing game manager at Rocksteady, has just played through an early mission from Arkham City, lasting around 30 minutes, which I'm not going to spoil for you. We are free to call out questions afterwards and one journalist asks, "Will we see anything like the Scarecrow missions from Arkham Asylum?"
"Did you like the scarecrow stuff?" he replies to slow nods. "Well we did too. Aren't you glad that you didn't know about the Scarecrow levels before you played Arkham Asylum? If they had been part of the marketing campaign they wouldn't have had that kind of impact, so I'm just going to leave it there."
The biggest difference between Arkham City and its predecessor is the move to a more open setting. In the intervening 18 months, Quincy...
146w ago - SCEE European Product Manager Ross Alexander has shared the first PS3 screenshots from the upcoming Heavy Rain Move Edition for Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system today.
To quote: Today we have a world exclusive for you - the very first screenshots for the game which showcase the new PlayStation Move control system.
Heavy Rain has been given a PlayStation Move makeover with a brand new control scheme that gives players the ultimate freedom of control. With PlayStation Move you can really put yourself at the heart of the story more than ever before, and your every decision and every move will make a difference.
Heavy Rain Move Edition will be available to buy pre-Xmas. If you already have a copy of Heavy Rain you'll be able to download a free update from PSN that'll let you play the game with the new PlayStation Move controls.
Heavy Rain Move Edition is played using a PlayStation Move motion controller to complete actions and a PlayStation Move navigation controller or DUALSHOCK 3 Wireless Controller to move your character.
But if you want the full experience we'd strongly recommend you play with a PlayStation Move motion controller and a navigation controller.
You'll also be able to play the game with the standard DUALSHOCK 3 controls...
159w ago - Epic Games via Electronic Arts has released the first screenshots from their upcoming first-person shooter titled Bulletstorm today, which will hit the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows in 2011.
Bulletstorm takes place in a futuristic setting where a futuristic confederation is being protected by an elite band of mercenaries known as Dead Echo.
When Dead Echo members Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato discover that they had been working on the wrong side, they betray their squad commander and end up being exiled to the edges of the galaxy.
Bulletstorm will allow players to "step into the role of Grayson Hunt complete with an arsenal of over-the-top combat moves and outrageously large guns."
The developers also revealed that "Bulletstorm's array of distinct 'skillshots' produces unprecedented levels of frantic gameplay and yell-inducing satisfaction. The skillshot system rewards players for inciting mayhem in the most creative way possible.
The more insane the skillshot, the more points players collects to upgrade their character and unlock weapons, which then allows them to execute even more creative moves and exaggerated skillshots.
Check out some new screenshots from the video game below!
