First MW3 Maps Hit PS3 Call of Duty Elite Premium Members 2/28

100°
137w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has confirmed today that the first MW3 Maps will be hitting PS3 Call of Duty Elite Premium Members on February 28, 2012 with details outlined below.

To quote: It's going to be a long year - and that's a good thing. While Modern Warfare 3 has occupied a lot of time in the drives of a lot of PS3 owners since its November release, there is more content to come over the next several months.

And if you're a premium member of Call of Duty Elite, you're going to get your first two tastes of that content on February 28th.

While the content season will contain more than 20 items overall - some multiplayer maps, some game modes, and some Spec Ops missions - the first two pieces of content in the season are a Call of Duty player's bread and butter: multiplayer maps.

The seaside village of Piazza is a perfect battleground for fans of close-quarters combat; the sharp corners, tight corridors, and stone staircases all offer compelling examples of why the word "paranoia" is the same in English and Italian.

Liberation offers more room to run, but it's no less deadly. Enjoy the beautiful foliage, romantic footbridges, and brutal explosions as you attack the enemy centrally located park in Manhattan. Snipers will find their perches,...
 

Video: Experience Wimbledon Through Grand Slam Tennis 2 on PS3

200°
137w ago - EA Sports Producer Nate McDonald has announced today that fans can experience Wimbledon this February through Grand Slam Tennis 2 for PlayStation 3.

To quote: We are very excited to be bringing this franchise to you on the PlayStation 3 platform. Right now, I'm going to give you a quick rundown of what you can be looking forward to in our demo, which is currently available on the PlayStation Store.

One of our big innovations is our All-New Total Racquet Control, where you can control every shot with the right analog stick, smashing forehands, backhands, overheads, and volleys with precision, accuracy, and power.

You can utilize this control system to take your game to the next level, however, if you prefer the old school button controls, those are still available to play with as well.

Also new, and exclusive to PlayStation 3, is our PlayStation Move support. The motion control experience gets you on your feet and literally puts the racquet right in the palm of your hands. With a little bit of practice in the Practice Court prior to playing a match, you should have a good handle on all of the different control schemes in no time!





Once you have developed your shots in the Practice Court,...

137w ago - Team17 Community Manager Mark Baldwin has announced today that Worms Ultimate Mayhem will be obliterating PSN on February 14, 2012.

To quote: We are delighted to be able to announce the U.S. release date of Worms Ultimate Mayhem is Tuesday February 14, 2012. We'd also like to introduce the game to you all and answer any questions you may have.

Can you introduce the game to us please?

Sure, Worms Ultimate Mayhem is a "best of" compilation of content from both Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem, so it's got 38 weapons, plenty of customization options (including a selection of new ones) making for 115 individual customization elements in total.

There are also 60 single-player missions taken from both sources, making it a massive game. We've taken the opportunity to improve on what was there already too. We have made some really nice improvements to the camera and made the game even more approachable; to this end we added a new utility (the Binoculars) to help you aim, and an automatic shot assist mechanic that helps your shots find their targets in easy mode. We have also added some really cool loyalty content too.

In terms of visual improvements, we've brought the game up to date with a raft of enhancements. New water effects, up-scaled textures and fonts, higher...

137w ago - Game Director Paul Rustchynsky has posted up a video run-through on the competitive online play in MotorStorm RC for both PS3 and PS Vita today.

To quote: MotorStorm RC is a few short weeks away and already the competitive online cross-play at its heart is igniting intense rivalries.

Here at Evolution Studios there's been a lot of competition for the best performances on every track and we're thrilled that gamers and journalists are experiencing this at special preview events all around the world.

Ahead of getting the opportunity to jump into the competition for yourself, I'm here to give you the low down on just how online competition works with other players - running you through a short video of me competing with Zoe (Evolution Studios QA Manager, who sits on the desk across from me) as I take on her performance in a Hot Lap race.





It's so easy to see what your friends and rivals have been up to and, with super-fast load times on both PS3 and PS Vita, jump into a race instantly to beat their fastest times and wipe the smirk off their face.

Competing like this, on your own schedule, is a perfect fit for both MotorStorm RC and the PlayStation Vita, letting you pick up the game and compete...
 

Touch Controls in Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition on PS Vita

200°
137w ago - SEGA Executive Producer Mie Kumagai has detailed the touch controls in Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition on the PS Vita today.

To quote: When we were developing the game we wanted to incorporate the new features of the Vita into Virtua Tennis as much as we possibly could, whilst obviously making the best game possible.

One of the key features for the PlayStation Vita is front and rear touch. Virtua Tennis takes full advantage of this technology and allows players to play the most precise and responsive shots with a touch of their fingertips.

With a single touch of the screen you can tell the player where exactly to move to on the court, before taking one of a variety of shots by swiping your finger across the screen towards the area of the court you wish to hit the ball to.

A simple forward slide with your finger will play a top spin shot, a backward slide will play a backspin shot and a sharp backwards movement followed by a forward slide will play a lob shot.

Virtua Tennis also includes a match momentum system which rewards players for good shots by slowly filling the match momentum bar.  Once your match momentum bar has completely filled up you can also play a 'special' shot by hitting the shot with two fingers.

There is also the option...
