Sony Introduces Mighty No. 9 for PlayStation 3, Details Available

29w ago - 8-4 Ltd Executive Director Mark MacDonald introduced Mighty No. 9 for PlayStation 3 today with details below.

To quote: What are you gonna be doing come Spring of 2015? No plans yet? Well here's one appointment to put on your calendar a bit early: Mighty No. 9!

Maybe your limbs could become giant magnets, enabling you to walk up walls or rip away enemy shields... Or maybe extendible spring-loaded hands would let you to activate far-away switches or work as a grappling hook...

Or a tank-like body might let you easily cross over spikes or push objects around the levels... These are just a few possibilities we're considering (the game is still in the design phase), but you get the idea!

You might know Mighty No. 9's...

It's finally here. The ambitious, long-awaited open world from Rockstar Games, Grand Theft Auto V, hits PS3 this week.

The Grand Theft Auto franchise has commanded the attention of gamers for years, and the launch of a new entry in the series is a true industry event. And this is no exception.

Grand Theft Auto V introducers gamers to a trio of protagonists pulled (once again) into a life of crime.

New to the series, Grand Theft Auto V supports dynamic switching between these three characters, enabling players to weave in and out of action - and the sprawling city of Los Santos.

Plan heists, drive luxurious cars, grab a round of golf, or just cause trouble. All and more await in Los Santos.

But Grand Theft Auto V isn't the only game dropping next week. Real Boxing hits PS Vita and brings with it an eye-catching boxing simulation with refined controls and additional features. For the complete list of games coming, head on down.
