182w ago - Today Sega of America's Assistant Community Manager Aaron Webber has confirmed that Yakuza 4 is coming exclusively to PS3 in Spring, 2011.
To quote: After some amazing passion seen across the board from fans regarding the release of Yakuza 3, SEGA is proud to announce that the fourth installment of the Yakuza series is heading West, and will be releasing exclusively on the PlayStation 3 in the spring of 2011!
Yakuza 4 also builds on the style of the original Yakuza foundation by adding three new playable characters, each with a distinct personality and fighting style.
They all have connections to the Tojo clan – but what those connections are, and what they mean with regard to a man named Kazuma Kiryu, is just one part of what will truly make things interesting.
We'd also like to confirm what we feel is important news for our fans: the Hostess Clubs will be returning in Yakuza 4!
Finally, we'd like to let you guys field questions to the man whose name goes hand in hand with the Yakuza (or Ryu Ga Gotoku in Japan) series himself: Nagoshi-san!...
188w ago - VidZone's Head of Production Ben Creasey has announced today news of The Noisia world premiere exclusively on PSN.
To quote: "If Van Gogh had heard this, he'd have cut off his other ear out of fear"...a quote from Drum & Bass superstars Pendulum when describing Noisia!
Noisia are the latest superpower from the world of Drum & Bass and 2010 should be a huge year for the trio comprised of Nik Roos, Thijs de Vlieger and Martijn van Sonderen.
Despite recently working on productions for The Prodigy, Kanye West, Moby, Hadouken! and Lupe Fiasco, Noisia have found time to release their debut album 'Split The Atom' which showcases their incredible talent by bringing the heaviest beats to the table and we're not even kidding that it will knock the entire music world off its feet!
So when we got wind of Noisia (with Mayhem ft. KRS One) working with the virtual design genius which is Alexander Lehmann (of District 9 Movie fame), we went crazy to get our mitts on their "Exodus" video. Lucky us and luckier you because we can now confirm that VidZone is exclusively bringing PlayStation 3 users the world music video premiere on Thursday at 3pm, a video phenomenon which has taken 3 YEARS to make!

215w ago - According to the latest Famitsu Magazine, R-Type 3D is coming exclusively to the PS3 console.
It appears that R-Type Final is indeed not the last in the series, according to distantmantra commenting on the latest Famitsu issue at NeoGAF: "There's something about a PS3 exclusive (?) R-Type 3D, and 3D Dot Game Heroes got 8/8/7/7."
For those unaware, R-Type is a side scrolling shoot-em-up arcade game produced by Irem. The player controls a space fighter named "Arrowhead" to defend humanity against a mysterious but powerful alien life-form known as "Bydo", which was later discovered to be not entirely alien in origin.
To quote from Examiner.com (linked above): "It is unknown whether the "3D" in title means that the game will take place in a 3D plane or whether it would be in a 2D plane with 3D graphics (a la R-Type Delta)."
