E3 2009: Persona 5 Coming to Next-Gen Consoles?

50°
296w ago - Fans of Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei Persona series have been anxiously awaiting a next-gen update to the cult favorite series.

That wait might not be too much longer, to quote:

Today, Atlus told our E3 reporting team that Persona 5 "probably won't be on the PlayStation 2," and will likely be making the jump to the PlayStation 3 and/or Xbox 360.

It's much too soon to talk about release schedules, but just the notion that the game is in development is good enough for me.

The PlayStation 2 versions of the series were highly enjoyable, and if Atlus gives the same love and attention to this next entry, you can be sure they'll have another critical darling on their hands.
 

Rant: Lian Li Hates You and XBox 360 Consoles

250°
296w ago - When I had a look at the Lian Li XB01 case, I was jumping for joy, the case looks pretty badass. It's black, has a load of vents for air to pass through, or as Homer Simpson would say "Speed holes".

Overall at first impression, was very pleased with the design and even install manual they provide. It was very detailed screw by screw. I couldn't wait to get this going.

I should have had a feeling this case was designed by satan himself to bring my Xbox 360 consoles to hell with him, what I was about to place my 360 in wasn't a case to run cool, it was about to be housed in a pizza oven.

As you start to install your Xbox motherboard, you chuckle and laughing in the face of RROD claiming "heat cannot hurt me now!"

Little do you know friends, things are about to heat up.

Once I secured the last screw... I powered this bad boy up... then the bad things started to come through... sort of like that girl you thought was a good idea to date...

Need to charge your controller or like me and the only person known to man with a wired Rock band guitar? Guess what, you need to open a garage door to find the usb plug. Not only Lian Li not think about style with respect to this, but it really takes away from the look of the case. Rather than having a case looking like...
 

The Difference Between Video Game Consoles and PC

400°
297w ago - For the longest time there has been a distinct difference between PC games and console games. The thought of the 2 merging together was blasphemy to some and ludicrous to others.

As time passed however, the gap between the two has merged closer together with each passing console generation.

In past generations we have been blessed to have an abundant amount of games that varied across both PC and consoles. PC was more focussed towards FPS, RTS and MMO. Consoles were more towards platformers, fighters, JRPG and adventure games.

It was enough to warrant the purchase of a PC and a console if one wanted to experience all that was available. Best of all it pushed PC development in a different direction to console development. While PC devs were working on Half Life 2 console devs were working on Gran Theft Auto. For the gamer this presented an expensive problem, especially if one couldn't afford to buy a PC and a console.

The big difference between PC and consoles is obviously hardware. PC could upgrade its hardware continually, consoles not so. Even without upgrades PC hardware is far superior when compared to console hardware. Games that come out on console and PC, generally, look better on PC thanks to their superior CPU and GPU.

But this doesn't always mean that...
 

Cross Edge Slashes to PS3 Consoles Today: PS3 Trophies Await!

50°
297w ago - Today Nao Zook, the PR/Marketing Coordinator of NIS America, Inc has announced that Cross Edge hit the PS3 console.

To quote: As of today (May 26th), Cross Edge has officially been released!

Cross Edge is a dream-come-true RPG for hardcore gamers. It is the first RPG on PLAYSTATION 3 that has 5 different companies collaborating for one incredible adventure!

You'll see some familiar faces from Darkstalkers (Capcom); Disgaea (Nippon Ichi Software); Ar tonelico (Bandai Namco); Atelier Marie and Mana Khemia 2 (Gust); and Spectral Souls (Idea Factory). And all the characters are playable. Isn't that cool?

You can also collect costumes for all the different characters, and their stats and abilities will change depending on which costume they are wearing.





And when you change costumes on female characters, their appearance will also change! It's really cute! If you are into these characters, Cross Edge is a must-have!

I would also like to talk a bit about the battle system. Cross Edge has a unique hybrid battle system that combines a classic RPG setup with an intuitive grid-based SRPG style.

In battle, a square grid will appear beneath the units, and players can move their characters...
 

Analyst: Prepare for Sluggish Spring, No New Consoles Until 2013

250°
300w ago - Compared to last Spring's outlandish software sales figures (fueled by the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and GTA IV), this year's stats aren't inspiring much confidence in gaming industry investors.

In fact, many are anxiously awaiting the launch of new hardware to provide a quick sales boost - but according to industry analyst Michael Pachter (linked above), they shouldn't hold their breath: By his estimation, new hardware won't be hitting store shelves until at least 2013.

Pachter said that publishers would be hesitant to adopt new hardware considering their investments in the current console cycle have yet to adequately pay off.

There is one exception though - Pachter expects the [Register or Login to view links] high-definition Wii may appear some time in 2010.
