99w ago - Codemasters Community Manager Benjamin Bateman is here with some fresh video footage from E3 2011 of Bodycount on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Bodycount is back and I'm here to divulge all the juicy intel. The Codemasters Guildford studio has been tightly clammed since last year's E3 so you'd be forgiven for asking, what is Bodycount?
Bodycount is an adrenaline-inducing, explosive torrent of action, destruction and gun ecstasy. It's an FPS that puts the fun back into firepower. But these words can barely do it justice, so here's our brand new gameplay trailer from E3.
Right off the bat you can see the explosive boom-stick that is the shotgun, and it really sums up what Bodycount is. This isn't just another shooter; this is a gun centerfold that gives you amazingly satisfying guns that you will never forget.
The mantra in the team has been 'gun, bullet, world' - everything is focused on the experience of squeezing the trigger, hearing bullets tear through the air and watching them obliterate enemies and the environment.
Every gun has been carefully crafted for your gaming pleasure. Bodycount has everything from a deadly pistol all the way up to super-charged futuristic weaponry used...
102w ago - This weekend Under Siege Producer Filipe Pina has announced that the new PS3 strategy game Under Siege is now available on PSN.
To quote: Our little big game is now on sale on the PlayStation Store! Under Siege is an action and strategy game in real time, where a small group of heroes fight against a huge invading army.
We developed Under Siege to be played with the DualShock 3 controller and it also supports the PlayStation Move motion controller. We also boost lots of cool features like video recording, custom music, and video chat. The game even runs in full 1080p in Dolby Digital 5.1.
Under Siege is now available for $19.99 ($10.00 for PlayStation Plus users) and suppers six languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. It includes a full campaign, two-player multiplayer online and local play, and the same Editor used by us to create the game itself.
The Editor is one of the most important features we put in Under Siege. We started production on it before making the game so we that made sure our level designers created everything directly on a PS3 with a DualShock 3. This way, it was possible to keep on upgrading and improving the features and usability while the game was being made.

111w ago - Avalanche Software Senior Producer Jonathan Warner has made available a video today on Cars 2: The Video Game, which now officially supports PS3 3D and 4-player split-screen.
To quote: We're wrapping up production on Cars 2, and now we're excited to announce that Cars 2: The Video Game will be presented in 3D exclusively on the PS3.
We've worked very closely with Pixar to bring a cool Cars 2 game to life, and it's even more exciting to bring all of those great characters to life in a full 3D experience. Pixar has created such vibrant worlds that resonate so well with audiences that it seemed a natural extension to take the game to a 3D setting -- just like the upcoming film.
What's more, our engineers were able to design a system that allows us to harness the power of the PS3 to display the game in four-player split screen in full 3D.
It made the PlayStation 3 the perfect choice for developing a 3D game. We're really looking forward to delivering a special racing game, and I hope you will enjoy playing it as much as we do!
The 3D aspect for the PS3 enables you to step into the game world and experience it the same way you will in a 3D-equipped theater. You'll get an extra visceral component to the...
