LittleBigPlanet on UK Launch Pad

300°
359w ago - Sony's great white hope - the quite wonderful looking LittleBigPlanet - looks nearer to finding its way into our homes, with Sony insiders confirming they are working to get the game out in the UK for this September.

The game - which was unveiled to universal applause at last year's Games Developer Conference - is currently being developed by British company Media Molecule. It is one of the highest profile exponents of a new generation of games placing an emphasis on creativity, giving players a blank canvas to explore co-operatively and making full use of the PlayStation Network to deliver patches and user generated content. It's continued to impress at subsequent outings at E3 and the Tokyo Game Show, and if it manages to realise its lofty ambitions it could well prove to be Sony's killer app.

The September release date may be a little later than many had hoped - initial mummurings suggested the first quarter of this year - but at least it gives us something to look forward to towards the end of the year. As soon as more concrete details emerge, we'll be sure to let you know.
 

Hero Showdown: Dante vs. Kratos

50°
359w ago - Another year, another Showdown. The first Hero Showdown of 2008 kicks off by going to the mats with two titans of the gaming world, guys who have a history of pissing off and picking fights with gods and devils: Devil May Cry's Dante vs. God of War's Kratos.

Last time on Hero Showdown, Homer Simpson took Peter Griffith to the mattresses, and earned a first-place trophy filled with Duff in the process. Sector 7G's "best" employee scored 65.8% of the vote, leaving Quahog's lovable chicken fighter with 34.1%.

The latest installment of HS promises to deliver an ass-kicking of biblical proportions, as the half-devil, half-man-child takes on a former Spartan-turned-deity. And audience participation is encouraged, so check out the profiles below, add a comment or six, and cast your vote in the poll below. Fights don't get any easier than that.

So let's do this:

Dante

The star of Capcom's Devil May Cry series since 2001, Dante is the son of a mortal woman and a devil lieutenant who managed the not-so-easy task of conquering and imprisoning the Devil (Satan, Lucifer, Disney, he has many names...). With an origin like that (and frosted, metro hair) it is no surprise that Dante has some violent tendencies. But what demon-slaying mercenary doesn't?

With twin handguns...
 

Unreal Tournament PS3 mod cooking update coming soon

50°
359w ago - An update for Unreal Tournament Engine editor, that will allow UT3 mod-makers to cook their mods into the required PS3 format is coming soon. It should be released next week after wider testing.

To quote: We're very close to releasing an update to the Unreal Engine 3 editor, that comes with the PC version of UT3, that will allow UT3 mod-makers to cook their mods into the required PS3 format. We've been doing some internal testing and we're hoping to expand to a wider group tomorrow or Friday.

If all goes well then we should see the update released next week which is what I expect will happen. Obviously the process works, as we put out a few mods before Christmas and people seem to be playing them, but it is the update to the editor that we're testing.
 

Will the new ‘Ultimate’ Xbox 360 eclipse Sony’s PS3?

50°
359w ago - What a week for rumor mongering. Metal Gear Solid 4 on the Xbox 360, Crysis on the Xbox 360, and now the imminent arrival of the new Xbox 360 'Ultimate.' What will Friday bring, we wonder?

With Mr. Bill Gates expected to launch a departing bombshell during his final keynote as Microsoft chairman at next week's upcoming CES show in Las Vegas, industry commentators have been speculating wildly about exactly what he might unleash.

Well, if today's rumour from Stuff magazine is to be believed, Microsoft's concerted efforts to quell the challenge of Sony in the gaming arena are about to shift into overdrive with the arrival of the all-new 'Ultimate' Xbox 360 console.

Not content with the Core, Premium, and Elite models, Microsoft is apparently preparing the autumnal introduction of its Ultimate edition, a 320GB behemoth that comes equipped with 1080p HDMI, onboard Wi-Fi connectivity, HD audio output, cool-running 65nm hardware, and an almost imperceptible ventilation fan.

Furthermore, it will also be able to take advantage of the Xbox IPTV service, which is expected to be in full flow well before the end of the year. And, if you're presently wondering whether the Ultimate will offer enough oomph to crush the PlayStation 3 beneath Microsoft's stomping corporate boots,...
 

Worst European PlayStation Store Update Ever?

500°
359w ago - Update: A French Sony representative lets us know that last week was their week off and so they had nothing set up for this week, which is perfectly fine. Therefore, this weeks European update is only what they had hanging around, making our title a tad unkind.

It looks as though the European and Australian stores are going to be pretty empty this week. Their friends across the water had a New Years break, and perhaps it is their turn for a little rest. It certainly looks like it.

Can we blame them? They brought us 3 gems last week - a Super Stardust HD demo and upgrade, The Club demo and a new PSN game, Snakeball.

The Australian Store has already been updated, and reports from the French Playstation forum suggests that the same meager offerings are on their way to Europe also.
