Sony Unveils a First Look at Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 for PS3

200°
99w ago - Sony's Latin America Blog Manager Lorenzo Grajales has officially unveiled a first look at Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 for the PS3 entertainment system today with details included in an interview below!

To quote: A few weeks ago, we traveled to Sao Paulo, Brazil to meet with our fellow PlayStation bloggers in Brazil and to attend the debut of Pro Evolution Soccer 2013.

This was the first time we had an opportunity to play the game, and some members of the development team were there to answer our questions. A few games later, here's what we learned:

This year, the PES team has lots of new people onboard who are sure to inject new life into this soccer simulation game, which already has millions of fans around the world.

In addition to all-new AI that I noticed after just a few games, PES 13 has implemented many new features in direct response to fan feedback, including better control that gives you more freedom, such as manual passing and full manual shooting, giving you more control over your actions.

It is a bit difficult to use at first, but highly rewarding once you master it. In the short time I used this feature, I obviously couldn't master it, and so I had to resort to traditional shooting.....
 

EA Announces Crysis 3 for PS3, Dated for 2013 with LE Plan Details

500°
105w ago - Following last week's leaks, today Electronic Arts has had no choice but to spill the beans and announce Crysis 3, revealing its 2013 release projection and limited edition plans.

To quote: Crysis 3 returns to New York, with Prophet returning to find the city trapped in a "Nanodome" by the Cell Corporation. It promises "seven distinct and treacherous environments" as the city becomes engulfed in natural flora, having turned into an "urban rainforest." This seems to confirm suggestions that the game would blend the jungle setting of the first game with the city environments of the second.

Gameplay has been described as "sandbox," so don't expect it to be as linear as the last one.

Pre-order bonuses have already been revealed, with select retailers offering various multiplayer packs, detailed below. Furthermore, the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition is available to pre-order now, and includes the "Hunter" Nanosuit module, a bonus XP boost for the multiplayer, three exclusive dog tags, and a unique skin for the debuting composite bow weapon.

Crysis 3 will be available in Spring of next year.

Stalker Pack – Includes the base game,...
 

Rumor: PlayStation 4 (PS4) to Debut in 2013, Codenamed Orbis?

800°
108w ago - Today Kotaku (linked above) reports that Sony is rumored to debut the PlayStation 4 (PS4) next-generation console in 2013 which is currently assumed to be codenamed as Orbis.

While PS4.SCEDev.net does not currently work, the URL Orbis.SCEDev.net currently resolves to Sony's developer network Web site.

To quote: "While the official reveal of Sony's next home console could still be months away, if not longer, Kotaku has today learned some important details concerning the PlayStation 3's successor.

For one, the console's name- or at least its codename/working title- is apparently Orbis. And it's being planned for release in time for the 2013 holiday season.

The details in this story come from a reliable source who is not authorized to talk publicly about next-gen hardware but has shared correct information with us before. What they're telling us in specifics matches much of what we've heard and reported in generalities in recent weeks.

A Sony spokesperson declined to comment about these details, citing the company's policy not to comment on "rumors or speculation."

WHAT'S IN A NAME

Orbis. Say it out loud. Sounds a little like the word "four", doesn't it? Only it doesn't make the next PlayStation sound like a bad horror movie sequel.
 

Analyst: Prepare for Sluggish Spring, No New Consoles Until 2013

250°
260w ago - Compared to last Spring's outlandish software sales figures (fueled by the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and GTA IV), this year's stats aren't inspiring much confidence in gaming industry investors.

In fact, many are anxiously awaiting the launch of new hardware to provide a quick sales boost - but according to industry analyst Michael Pachter (linked above), they shouldn't hold their breath: By his estimation, new hardware won't be hitting store shelves until at least 2013.

Pachter said that publishers would be hesitant to adopt new hardware considering their investments in the current console cycle have yet to adequately pay off.

There is one exception though - Pachter expects the rumored high-definition Wii may appear some time in 2010.
