Legend of Spyro: Darkest Hour to hit this year?

50°
340w ago - Who is your favorite dragon that knows how to burn those sheep into nothing but crispy delight? Spyro without a doubt is the only one capable of being the answer to that very question.

EB Games and GameStop have officially started taking pre-orders for the lovable dragon for its upcoming title, Legend of Spyro: Darkest Hour. They currently have the listed price at $49.99 which happens to be $10 cheaper than usual retail launches. The game is expected to release in October, so you may be able to catch a glimpse of this title at the upcoming Game Developer Conference next week.

The title is supposedly going to be a multi-platform release for the PlayStation 2 and 3 as well as the Nintendo Wii and DS. This apparently leaves the 360 owners out of the fire breathing fun once again.

We'll keep you up to date as more comes out regarding this title in the future.
 

Resistance 2 PS3 Preview

50°
340w ago - As a launch title, Resistance: Fall of Man did much to dissuade potential PS3 owners from holding off on taking the initial plunge with a huge financial investment for the system. The title showcased a substantial portion of the PS3's technical might as well as the skill of developers Insomniac Games and landed its way as the top-selling game within days of the system's release.

Mixing a touch of sci-fi horror into an intense, stunning first-person shooter on the next-gen console was a winning mixture for Insomniac, whose track record is well proven with the hilarious and engaging Ratchet and Clank series. With two great PS3 titles under their belt, they're out to up the ante with what looks to be one hell of a sequel in Resistance 2.

While FOM centered on the invasion of Britain by the alien Chimera forces, Resistance 2 takes the battle to American shores. The game's story will pick up precisely where players left off at the conclusion of the first installment; protagonist Nathan Hale is captured by unknown troops and whisked away to Iceland.

Their chopper is shot down, and Hale eventually makes it back to the U.S. where he joins a group of fighters who are resistant to the Chimera virus. From there, the conflict will unfold across the 1950's era American landscape - in an alternate reality...
 

PS3 backwards compatibility to return?

100°
340w ago - PlayStation 3 owners who don't have PS2 backwards compatibility may yet be able to enjoy the feature after a Sony executive hinted at its return.

At launch, all PlayStation 3 consoles boasted PS2 backwards compatibility - with the US and Japanese machines offering a hardware solution while the UK console featured software emulation.

However, Sony removed the feature in later editions of the console, including the 40Gb model currently on sale in the UK.

PlayStation network director Eric Lempell told EGM that the function could return for those PS3 consoles currently lacking it. "There are possibilities through technology and software emulation to make that possible," he said, but added that Sony has no "specific plans at this point".
