New FragFX v2 FPS Controller Coming to PlayStation 3

300°
282w ago - Digital Battle claims that a new controller dubbed the [Register or Login to view links] is coming to the PlayStation 3, one which better emulates the mouse-and-keyboard combination which PC users have long touted as superior to console controls when it comes to first-person shooters.

And as an aside, I'm not claiming them right or wrong, as it's really not my genre, so I can't really vouch either way.

To quote: A new peripheral for the PS3 is being released in ninety days that'll allow console gamers to achieve a slice of that pinpoint accuracy.

It's actually two controllers, and unfortunately for any lefties it's obviously designed only for right handed gamers as the buttons on the mouse are located on the left side for easy thumb access. The other controller is a bit like a Wiimote, with its own analog stick and d-pad.

I would definitely take this one with a grain of salt - the article claims it will be out in 90 days. Sure, we may very well see something in that time, but given the multiple delays I wouldn't hold my breath.

PowerMad Review of Killzone 2 Exclusively for the PlayStation 3

400°
282w ago - Now that I don't have a 13-minute limit of a video I can fully explain how great Killzone 2 is. The graphics to Killzone 2 are amazing to say the very least.

Graphics/Environment/Audio

Right away you are dropped off at a area that has some of the best water physics and visuals I have ever personally seen.

This is coming from a man who has played Crysis on a full 1080P monitor with the graphics all the way up. As well as Metal Gear Solid 4 in the same way.

You can search high and low but will never find a game at this current time that looks better than Killzone 2.









The textures and environment just set the mood. You will almost never get bored of just walking around looking at the world around you.

The physics are near perfect. The way the Helghast look as you shoot them with your assault rifle is perfect they move just the way you would expect them to.

There was also a lot of care put into the audio of this game. What more can you say? If it sounds like a explosion when it's a explosion it's good.

So full Circle this game will make all your senses happy. From the great visuals,...
 

Dirt 2 for the PlayStation 3 Console Expected in September 2009

250°
283w ago - The original Dirt was a hit across the board, which naturally means that Codemasters is hard at work on a sequel. Known quite simply as Dirt 2, this follow-up was unveiled by the English publisher at a press event last night in San Francisco.

During the presentation, the big theme that Codemasters was hammering on for this sequel was the idea of off-road racing with an extreme sports attitude. What does that mean, exactly?

The first game featured voice-over work by motocross legend Travis Pastrana, but this time around Codemasters is looking to go full tilt with the game's presentation.

A teaser video revealed a scene from the player's RV, the hub where you control all your career mode exploits, and it was a raucous collection of grime, half-naked women, and general insanity. That should serve as a good hint of what the overall attitude will be.

But of course, this is still a racing game, and gussying up the user interface will take you only so far. Thankfully, Codemasters revealed some intriguing information about the type of racing you'll be doing this time around. The biggest chunk of information they let out is the inclusion of stadium rally events.

They showed a gameplay video of a fictional stadium built around London's Battersea Power Station, with...
