FIFA World Cup Kicks Off On PS3

50°
360w ago - While international footy in the world of solid 3D fleshy things is proving pretty depressing (unless you come from a country that can actually play the game), the FIFA Interactive World Cup is getting nicely under way.

Since the PlayStation 3 exclusive event kicked off last month, an impressive 10,000 players from 25 countries have begun kicking it out over the PlayStation Network. This month, things have moved on to the first live qualifying events in Denmark, the Netherlands and Hungary.

"The FIFA Interactive World Cup is a fantastic opportunity for all football fans to show off their skills and passion for the sport with FIFA 08", said Barcelona has-been, Ronaldinho. "It is a great tournament in which you have to train and work hard to succeed - just like in real football, so I invite all fans to register and enjoy this party of interactive football."

Yeah. Cheers, Ronaldinho. Thanks. SPOnG's off to splash tears on to our PS3 now as we lament the home nations' piss poor performance in the Euro 2008 qualifiers last week.

Konami might want to do the same, given its recent problems with online play in PES 2008.
 

PS3 Systems Are In Abundance Post Black Friday

50°
360w ago - Well Black Friday is passed and if tradition serves correctly, it's the day that sets the trends for the holidays. How was the console war affected by Black Friday? Word on the streets is that Wii's are still hard to find, Xbox Premium and Elite systems are nowhere to be found and PS3 systems are everywhere, yet still selling.

If you want to get an 80gb or 40gb PS3, they are in plentiful piles. You can pretty much go to any store and buy one. Even thought the price drop has caused a sales surge, the stock from the past few months is in abundance. If you want a PS3 for Xmas, you should have no problems finding one.

Xbox 360's now come in 4 flavors: the Elite, the Premium, the Arcade and the Halo 3 box. Halo 3 boxes are easy to find. People just don't seem to like that color so they aren't jumping on it. Arcade systems are here and there. In my travels through many stores I was unable to find Premiums in abundance. Some stores had none at all while others had just a few. The Elite however, has disappeared off the planet. I did not see one Elite this weekend at all.

Wii stock is just like last year. It comes and it goes. It's just as popular as it was last Christmas if not more. I really thought they would be easier to find this year but Nintendo is doing it's best...
 

Midway and Epic Games Announce Unreal Tournament III Playstation 3

50°
360w 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°
360w 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.
