Video: TGS 2009: Hands-on with Bayonetta for PlayStation 3

100°
279w ago - Today JoyStiq posted a video (below) from Tokyo Game Show 2009 showcasing Bayonetta for PlayStation 3.

To quote from their synopsis on the PS3 title: "Centered on the exploits of an improbably posh witch and her fashionable pair of gun boots, Bayonetta feels like the result of designer Hideki Kamiya answering every development question with, "Sure, why not?"

The game's hyper excess occasionally veers into the distasteful - Bayonetta's clothing seems to come and go as it pleases - but it mostly leads to situations that feel creative and surprising.

Even a boss fight avoids routine by constantly changing pace: a battle on a bridge eventually becomes airborne after the whole structure is flung across the stage, and the ordeal isn't over until after a brief chase and a final showdown atop a winding set of stairs."

Zombie Apocalypse Demo Hits PS3 Today via PlayStation Network

50°
279w ago - Today Nihilistic Software Community Manager and Designer Mark Cooke has announced that a Zombie Apocalypse demo is available for PS3 via Sony's PlayStation Network.

To quote: Today on PSN a shambling mass of rotting corpses have appeared and are threatening the safety of the human race on Earth.

You can do your part to fight back the zombie hordes in our new game, Zombie Apocalypse, developed by [Register or Login to view links] and published by [Register or Login to view links]. For $9.99 you'll shoot loads of zombies with one to four players fighting cooperatively in an online enabled zombie kill fest.

When Nihilistic first sat down and thought about creating a downloadable title, we immediately wanted to do it in the horror genre. We've got a lot of zombie and horror fans here. Not to mention some hardcore fans of old-school shooters. Combining the two felt logical and Zombie Apocalypse was born.

Thematic inspiration was drawn primarily from classic zombie films of the 70s and 80s. Two films in particular are ZOMBIE (aka Zombi 2) by Lucio Fulci, and Nightmare City by Umberto Lenzi. The first level in Zombie Apocalypse is set in an airport which is a homage to Nightmare City. If you haven't heard of either of these...

European PlayStation Store Update for September 24, 2009

279w ago - Here is the European PSN update, courtesy of Mike Kebby from the SCEE PlayStation Store Team:

Howdy all, another week, another dollop of content for you all

I know it's a tough act to follow last week's offering, but I think we've done a good job of carrying on the momentum - but I leave it to you to see what you think.

Heavy Weapon joins the PSN game list on the store, we have three demos for you this week, starting with Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, then a slice of Lost Planet 2 (with those extra bits to play for us PS3 owners) and if you didn't check out The Punisher: No Mercy when it was released a while back, we also have a demo for that title now available too.

The standout bit of content this week for me (and that's because I am a self-confessed fanboy) is the Broken Steel pack for Fallout 3, but we also have more challenges for Batman: Arkham Asylum, and extra content for UFC Unleashed 2009, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, Madden NFL 10, Rock Band and Guitar Hero. Speaking of Guitar Hero we also have some special offers on a selection of tracks for this week only, and there are more details on this in the content list below.

For our PSP users you can test your rallying skills with Colin McRae DiRT 2, play with your food in Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs...
 

Sony CEO: PlayStation 3 Stock Shortages Are Possible This Year

400°
279w ago - In an interview today, chief executive of Sony Computer Entertainment of America Jack Tretton said he expects the PS3 price cuts and lineup of popular games due ahead of the Christmas holiday will lift the entire video game industry, following some six months of sales declines.

However, he also noted that higher demand for the PlayStation 3 could leave some retailers out of stock.

To quote: "In a very difficult economy, I couldn't be more optimistic about our fortunes for the rest of the year and for the future," he said.

But he noted that higher demand for the PS3 could leave some retailers out of stock.

"If things continue at this pace, it is conceivable that there will be product shortages," Tretton said.
