Eight minutes of UT III - PS3

358w ago - Unreal Tournament III has finally hit PS3 in US after months of confusion over it's release, and we can confirm it's pretty bloody good.

Earlier this morning we put the PS3 and PC versions of the game side-by-side to check out the difference between them. The bottom line, though, is that it looks and plays beautifully on Sony's fire-breathing beast.

The three videos below give you a taster of the awesome variety in level design. First up is a close-quarters deathmatch map called Sanctuary, set in an oriental-style location with an outdoor courtyard.

We also give Vehicle CTF a bash in the gorgeous Suspense stage - a medium-sized arena (in UT III terms) on a giant bridge with the two bases at either ends.

Then it's onto the new Warfare mode on the absolutely enormous Avalanche level, which is so large you could get 200 players on it, let alone 16. Two huge open snowfields are connected by a central cavern.

In Warfare mode, in case you don't know, your objective is to capture a series of nodes (bases) around the battlefield before destroying the enemy's main base power core.

Go take a look! Now! Videos can be seen here.

Another Gran Turismo 5: Prologue video!

EA: New Battlefield will "change the way you play shooters"

358w ago - Battlefield: Bad Company will change the way we play games, according to EA. GamePro speaks with Karl-Magnus Troedsson, the senior producer for Battlefield: Bad Company, due out this March.

How similar is Bad Company to a typical Battlefield title? If I'm a Battlefield veteran, what would make me want to play Bad Company?

Experienced Battlefield fans will feel very much at home with Bad Company. The core mechanics, the sandbox game play experience that's the pedigree of all Battlefield games, is present in the new online mode as well as the singleplayer campaign. Think huge environments with tons of weapons, vehicles and gadgets and then combine this with your own imagination to how to solve the problems at hand. Seasoned Battlefield players can also stay tuned for a Veteran program.

I understand DICE recently added a single-player portion to Bad Company. How does this work differently than multiplayer?

The singleplayer campaign in the Battlefield: Bad Company(tm) has a lot of common things with playing online. The difference is that the player is grouped together with a squad of three other soldiers which go on a story driven adventure within the war. The game style is otherwise very similar to multiplayer i.e. anything you find on the battlefield can be used and no objective...

Sony Announces Early 2008 Line-Up

358w ago - Make no mistakes about it, Sony is not joking around when it comes down to first party releases. Having come off a solid holiday line up, including blockbusters like Uncharted, Warhawk, and Ratchet and Clank, SCEA has wasted no time in announcing their early 2008 offerings.

The great news here is that they've made MLB 08: The Show official, as you may have read in Ben's piece. This is great news because this year's MLB 07 was a fantastic game, but MLB 08 looks to improve in virtually every facet, with a visual overhaul to boot. Moreover, we're finally getting a WipeOut HD release date: early next year it is, which usually indicates a period between January and February.

Of course, for those pining for the smell of burnt rubber, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue will arrive within the first quarter of 2008 (we predict March). To top things off, the PSP's God of War: Chains of Olympus will also hit in March, so keep an eye out for that.

Below you'll find Sony's current line-up, much of which, you should notice will arrive before the Spring:

MLB: The Show 08 (PS3) - Spring 08
Hot Shots Golf 5 (PS3) - March 08
Wipeout HD (PSN) - Early 08
Rat Race (PSN) - Winter 07/08
echochrome (PSN) - Q1 2008
Grant Turismo 5: Prologue (PS3/PSN) - Q1 2008

Sony DualShock3 Stateside in early 2008

358w ago - We were just alerted to an "easter egg" of sorts hidden in plain site in the text of the PS3 firmware 2.01 update released on November 20th.

It's not much, but an asterisked notation for "Vibration Function" says that the DualShock3 will be "Available for purchase in early 2008."

Goodish news for those of you having trouble acquiring the rumbler from Japanese importers.
