Midway and Epic Games Announce Unreal Tournament III Playstation 3

50°
351w ago - Good news for Playstation 3 gamers this holiday season. Unreal Tournament 3 has been confirmed for a December 10, 2007 release date by Midway Games and Epic Games today. Back in October, Midway Games wasn't anticipating the release would make it in time for a 2007 release, yet Epic Games did say they were aiming for December 2007. Midway does note that "limited quantities" will be available on December 11th.

From Midway: "Midway Games Inc. and Epic Games today announced that the PlayStation® 3 version of Unreal Tournament 3 is scheduled to ship to retail outlets in North America on December 10th. It is expected to begin arriving in stores in limited quantities the following day, with a U.S. suggested retail price of $59.95."

That's good news for the Playstation 3, especially since Ubisoft's Haze recently seems to have dropped off the 2007 PS3 release radar.

UPDATE: Midway responded that the limited quantities on December 11th are "due to shipping, some stores receive product earlier than others." Unreal Tournament III doesn't have a strict street date, so like some of the other recently released PS3 games, it will be sold by retailers as it is received. Midway also confirmed that there won't be a Playstation 3 collector's edition.
 

Worldwide PS3 releases for the week of November 25th

50°
351w ago - After the crazy spend-a-thon that was last week's release list, we can all finally give our wallets a little rest.

Though those of us in Europe may need to keep it on standby for the near future as both Uncharted and Singstar will be released in just under two weeks. Here's the full release for this week:

US Games:
No new releases

EU Games:
Blazing Angels 2
Stranglehold
The Golden Compass
Cars: Mater-National

Asian Games:
Tony Hawk's Project 8

Slim pickings indeed! There's no reason to moan, however, as we've just had a couple weeks worth of top-notch games hitting our shelves. There's little more to come this year, with the exception of Unreal Tournament 3 which should be available in the US in mid-December.

Don't forget your PS3 is region free for all games listed above, so feel free to import to your heart's content. Release dates are subject to constant change so be sure to check your local store before leaving the house. Disclaimer over.

Ghost Squad Review

50°
351w ago - Despite being the staples of modern arcades, there are hardly any lightgun games on Nintendo formats. Ever since they went all out and created a bazooka instead of an ordinary gun peripheral for the SNES, everyone has steered well clear.

But now that we have a Nintendo format that seems purpose-built for shooters, perhaps we'll see a few more of these arcade conversions popping up. And if they've had as much care and attention lavished on them as Sega's Ghost Squad so clearly has, then bring them on.

Making it your mission
Ghost Squad is a conversion of an arcade game that takes less than eight minutes to complete. You whack a quid in it, point the gun at the massive screen and blast away at terrorists until you either die because you got shot too much, or you make it all the way to the end with a high score.

If you complete a mission, there are two others of similar length. Each had multiple branching routes, so you wouldn't get exactly the same scenes every time, but it's going to cost you another quid every time you want to try a new combination.

For the truly dedicated, there's a memory card system that records your data and tracks your progress on any Ghost Squad machine you may find. But the cost and rarity in this country mean it's just an occasional treat at service...
 

PlayStation controller cuff links impress Sony interviewers

351w ago - For the ladies out there, we've no doubt that rocking a set of Wiimote earrings would totally increase your chances of lookin' good stupendous in a Nintendo interview room, but for the folks hoping to get a leg up on the competition for that open spot at Sony, here's your ticket.

These sterling silver cuff links each measure 0.75- x 0.5-inches and closely resemble the famed PlayStation controller, and in case that wasn't overboard enough, you can even opt to engrave the backing with Sony's stock ticker symbol for extra brownie points. Sure, $150 seems a bit steep for the pair, but practically guaranteeing yourself employment is probably worth the cost. Click on for an on-shirt shot.
