97w 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,...

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...

The wait is almost over, Jak and Daxter fans! I'm happy to announce that Jak and Daxter Collection launches in North America on February 7th. In a few short weeks you'll be able to score the first three installments of the Jak and Daxter trilogy in one complete PS3 Blu-ray package for just $39.99.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the Trophies that will be up for grabs:
