19 Hottest and Most Anticipated Games of 2008

50°
343w ago - We've spent the past few weeks researching ahead, and we are proud to bring you a list of our staff's most anticipated games, presented in alphabetical order...

Alan Wake: This psychological action thriller, from Remedy, (of Max Payne 1 and 2 fame) is published by Microsoft Game Studios, exclusively for Windows Vista and Xbox 360 (unfortunately, the previously planned PlayStation 3 version was nixed). The main character is based on Ilkka Villi, a Finnish professional actor and writer.

Disaster: Day of Crisis: This new "Survivor" Wii game uses natural disasters as the impetus to inspire rogue Special Forces, while players race cars down mountains, dodge toppling buildings, and try to avoid the devastation of an earthquake, in addition to swimming through a raging flood.

Endwar: Best-selling author, Tom Clancy's story, set during World War III, was designed by Ubisoft Shanghai. Previously known as "Firehawk," it is a real-time strategy game for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Nintendo DS.

Fallout 3: Those who have viewed development blogs and screenshots have said that this game appears to be re-done from the ground up; designed for true fans of the Fallout series. It seems like a true departure from the first two games, released 10 years ago, but it is promised to "stay...
 

Metal Gear Online Looking to Take Over PSN

50°
343w ago - After the success of the online portions of Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence on PS2, Konami is Gearing up to conquer the online gaming world with Metal Gear Online for PlayStation 3, which may be released as a part of the Metal Gear Online Starter Pack.

While being set against the backdrop of the upcoming Guns of the Patriots, MGO is looking to rival online juggernauts such as Call of Duty4 and Team Fortress 2 for dedicated fans. There are features that MGO, if properly integrated, could prove to be quite a memorable experience. A few notables are:

- Tried and true arsenal, including the VZ.83, AK10Z and M4s
- New system called SOKKU, which quickly gathers info about your allies.
- 16 player death-match, capture the base, along with other sneak and attack combat which is still TBA
- Character creation and leveling up, rivaling Call of Duty 4

It is still too early to tell if MGO will be commanding a legion of fans or just lag out into nothing more but hype. Even without any characters from the leading cast (although some screens suggest Snake will make an appearance), Konami still feels that this game will be instantly recognizable to anyone who has previously played anything from the Metal Gear franchise.

It is still unknown if MGO will be sold independently....

PS3News.com gets a late President's Day gift!

100°
343w ago - We at PS3News got yet another great, although belated gift recently. Welcome the new PS3 Test to the family!

We received it the other day and since this is an actual TEST unit, versus a prototype (which is what I have), we decided to show off a few pictures below!

With the additional TEST unit, we now have (2) development PS3's to work with. It will help work progress much more efficiently as the resident PS3 Devs will be able to offload work onto the other unit now too.

In related news, we have been able to get additional retail back-ups running on the TEST PS3, which squashes initial concerns that the current method may not work for all titles.. nice news indeed!

Furthermore, soon we will be launching a scene-wide BETA of a collaborative PS3 Dev project that has been in the works for awhile now. All individuals/sites are encouraged to participate so that the PS3's full potential can be unlocked- more very soon, it will be impressive!
 

PS3 Home BETA gets huge update next week

50°
343w ago - The update will bring the version number to 0.8.3 (taking us ever closer to its release at v1.0.0) and the information comes from the beta message board on the official PlayStation site, so we're certain it's legit.

Playstation Home BETA update version 0.8.3:

New user interface:

The UI has undergone a major change (our graphical artist calls the new interface "Home CS" [Home Chip System]) and it's not just there to look good; we also believe it improves the logical flow of your interactions.

Other UI changes include a new vector based font system that improves text clarity and improvements to a range of different icons (for example the loading icon under your character's feet now gives a sense of something happening).

Another nice addition is that people on your friends list in the virtual PSP are sorted by three different states: "Offline", "Online" and "Online in Home" - these are colour coded too.

The Virtual PSP has undergone considerable changes. We have changed the structure of the menus to try and make it easier and more logical to navigate. There are also new icons for all of the options and new backgrounds available to customise the look. In the past an option that was unavailable to you was simply invisible; but now the option will remain...
