Tomb Raider: Underworld for PS3 won't get DLC or a Demo

50°
289w ago - Remember the announcement that the XBox 360 will get exclusive downloadable content for Tomb Raider: Underworld?

Yeah, if you're a PS3 gamer, don't count on it being a timed exclusive. Eidos has confirmed that the DLC will not - repeat, not - appear on other consoles.

What's more, the demo planned to come out for the game this month is also an XBox 360 exclusive. Called it.

So first it was Grand Theft Auto IV, and then it was Fallout 3. Now it's Lara Croft.

What's with all this PlayStation 3 deprivation? Is Microsoft dishing out money again to get these DLCs, or are Bethesda and Eidos just not PS3 fans?

Live Demo: Valkyria Chronicles, PS3 Exclusive SRPG

50°
300w ago - Per Jeff Rubenstein (Social Media Manager) via PS Blog today: E3 may now be over, but the games shown off at the event will be a part of our lives throughout this holiday season and beyond. One title that will occupy the lives of PLAYSTATION 3 owners for hours upon hours this fall is Valkyria Chronicles. This PS3-exclusive strategy-JRPG from Sega (to clarify, NOT a PSP game), is utilizing the power of the console to push its dynamic and visually arresting Canvas Engine.

The graphics in Valkyria Chronicles appear similar to an animated watercolor painting, with a bit of the colored-pencil-sketch action seen A-ha€s 1980€s €Take On Me€ video. As you€ll see in the video below €" it really works.





Speaking of the video, it features Sega Associate Producer Christopher Kaminski detailing the unique battle system found in Valkyria Chronicles €" it completely takes the Strategy RPG genre €off the grid.€

We€ll have more on Valkyria Chronicles here on the PlayStation.Blog as we near its November release date.
