158w ago - Yesterday we saw the launch trailer for Red Dead Redemption on PS3, and today Examiner.com (linked above) has revealed that the PlayStation 3 version will be getting some exclusive content similar to what was done in Batman: Arkham Asylum.
Additionally, the rear box art indicates Red Dead Redemption will require 600MB of PS3 HDD space for the installation.
To quote: "Very similar to Batman: Arkham Asylum, which had the exclusive feature of playing as the Joker, Red Dead Redemption will also feature some exclusive to hopefully sway the consumers mind towards the PS3 version.
It did work with Batman and the title ended up outselling the Xbox 360 likely due to that reason.
The exclusive content will be Solomon's Folly Gang Hideout and Walton Gang Outfit - according to the retail box. The content is included for free and packed in the game's casing."

158w ago - Video game Producer Chris Parry has announced that Skate 3 for PS3 is rolling into shops today along with sharing a video trailer and extending an invitation to EA's launch party, as follows:
The Skate franchise is back and rolling into some sick new territory with the release of SKATE 3 for the PS3.
There's tons of new stuff for Skate fans to get stoked on - a whole new city to skate, innovative new team and co-op gameplay, new difficulty modes that enable you to skate exactly how you want, and for the first time in Skate, a Create A Park feature that will change the way the game is played.
If you're new to the world of Skate, don't sweat it because we've added Skate.School, a fun place to session where you can learn the ins and outs of skating as taught by Coach Frank - this weirdly hilarious and oxymoronic "skateboarding coach" played by legendary pro skater and actor, Jason Lee.
Your mission in SKATE 3 is to start a skateboard company and sell boards. Sell enough boards and you'll unlock four huge skateparks and plazas that are also "create a parks" with all sorts of varied and super fun terrain to play with.
The dev team is especially proud of Skate 3's commitment to blurring the lines between...
