Are Sony PlayStation 3 Exclusive Titles Cursed by the Media?

400°
281w ago - PS3 exclusives have a way of getting dissed by the general public and media before they are given a chance. The more superstitious fanboy might even call it a PS3 curse.

Let's run down the list: Lair became an industry whipping boy filling up YouTube with spastics that flailed SIXAXIS controllers with reckless abandon.

Ninja Theory's gorgeous Heavenly Sword wasn't measured on its own merits, but was held up against the standard that should be reserved for God of War.

Sega's stellar Valkyria Chronicles is seemingly invisible to the majority of mainstream gamers. Resistance 2 hasn't seen the sales a title of its caliber deserves. It's almost as if we've collectively banded together to repeatedly punish Ken Kutargi for his oft-echoed and ill-advised comments of "People will get a second job to buy the PS3." No, Ken. We didn't.

Then Killzone 2 dropped. If the PS3 has ever seen a game changer this is it. Strangely, the PS3 has been having a couple of great weeks. The launch of Yakuza 3 during the first week of March sparked a fury of PS3 console sales across the sea in Japan.

The PS3 outsold all other consoles including the dominant Nintendo handhelds in its home market. Over here, Killzone 2 moved 750,000 units in its opening weekend alone....
 

Video: Debut Split/Second Trailer for PlayStation 3 Available

200°
281w ago - As promised, last night's episode of [Register or Login to view links] brought the first look at Pure developer Black Rock Studio's upcoming racing title, Split/Second, for the PS3.

To quote: Keighley's ominous warning seems accurate - it appears to be trying to give Burnout a run for its money. However, rather than participating in high-speed (probably illegal) street racing for your own amusement, it looks like Split/Second will be placing your automotive exploits in front of an enraptured televised audience.

Split/Second will also add a neat gameplay element hinted at in the trailer - it looks like players will be able to "trigger" destructive events on the track in order to impede their opponents (or themselves, if they're not on top of their respective games).

Watch the [Register or Login to view links] if you want an example. The developers promise further info about the game next Wednesday.
 

PlayFire Unveils Official PlayStation Network Trophy Cards

250°
281w ago - Pictured below are the official designs for the PSN Trophy cards, which PlayFire.com has revealed to its members in conjunction with SCEE.

PlayFire took the bull by the horns when SCEA released its Trophy features on PlayStation.com and allowed users to sync their PlayFire cards with their Trophy info.

It's not automatic, but it's a lot faster than adding them individually. These new official cards, however, will "update automatically based on the Portal." We're not sure what the "Portal" is, but a Trophy card that updates automatically sounds great to us.

These Trophy cards will be available from eu.playstation.com (though you can use a PSN account from any region) at some point soon. We'll be sure to let you know when they go live.
 

Team ICO Set to Unveil New PlayStation 3 Title at E3 2009

281w ago - It looks like we're finally going to be able to get a glimpse at Team ICO's ultra-secret game!

Sony's sure going to put up a grand show during this year's E3. Their PSP line-up is pretty huge as it is. And for the PS3, you can bet your last rat's ass that God of War 3 and Heavy Rain will be there. But what else is there?

Somehow, Sony's managed to keep Team ICO's secret game under the radar for months now. But in E3, it looks like the curtains will finally be pulled up.

The new game following the spirit of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus is now confirmed to appear in E3 in the form of a trailer and some gameplay footage.

Heck, we might actually hear about the new game even sooner, during GDC (which starts two weeks from now!). Though the new game isn't confirmed to be revealed during the event, Ico and Colossus creator Fumito Ueda is confirmed to have a keynote speech duing GDC '09.
