GameStop released a press release where they revealed the details for the pre-order bonuses for the North American FIFA 13(FIFA Soccer 13), which is quite similar to the Ultimate Edition in the UK. The people who pre-order a copy will get their game in a steelbook case and will get free gold packs for the next six months for free.
Rockstar Games revealed a launch trailer for the much anticipated first DLC for Max Payne 3, The Local Justice Pack. The new DLC will be focused on the Multiplayer Element offered by Max Payne 3. There will some new maps, a new weapon and an entirely new faction to play as.
The case could be made that Kaz Hirai led the PlayStation brand to where it is today. While the PlayStation was a straightaway hit in Japan and Asia in general, it couldn’t make as much as a big impact stateside since the game library was largely Asian. But due to the efforts of Kaz Hirai, the Playstation brand became a household name in the Americas and Europe by marketing and securing third party franchises.
Sony’s latest handheld, the PS Vita, is getting a lot of love from it’s parents and third party developers. Ubisoft will release Assassin’s Creed: Liberation alongside the entrée, Assassin’s Creed III, while Activision is bringing the fight to the Vita with Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified. But it seems that Sony has something else stored up it’s sleeve as well.
After being handed over to Platinum Games, who are known for titles such as Bayonetta and the wonderful, over the top Vanquish, this new entry in the critically acclaimed Metal Gear series is set to boast super fast-paced action with a flashy cyborg ninja. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will bring Raiden into the spotlight as never before.
Sony has been introducing new colors to the DualShock 3 since some time now. There have been green, red and blue variants of the DualShock 3, in addition to the white, black and silver colors available at launch. But Sony has upped the ante with this baby.
As previously noted by me, David Cage is one of the most innovative and genius minds of gaming right now. And the last offering by him was Heavy Rain, which introduced the Interactive Drama genre to the gaming industry on it’s own. And this E3, he showed Quantic Dream’s new project, Beyond: Two Souls which stars Ellen Page as the lead character, Judie Holmes. This is nothing like the tech demo, Kara, since it focuses on the supernatural and is just too different.
The Wii U releases this Fall, and if they want to parallel the insane sales and fame of the first Wii, they will need some pretty heavy developer attention, and it seems like Ubisoft has stepped up to the task of helping this HD iteration of the Wii to stand up on it’s feet, and they did it using their flagship franchise, Assassin’s Creed, a franchise known for using the PlayStation 3 as it’s lead console, both in development and performance.
Black Ops 2 could be the breath of fresh air fans have been waiting for, while the game promises to bring new ideas to the table such as decisions and alternate endings branched from those decisions it seems that multiplayer will always be an integral part of this game. But if the new multiplayer details have any truth to them then it might just be assumed that even I might be interested in playing the multiplayer mode after finishing the single player campaign.
EA And Bioware have been throwing out free DLC to the players for months now following the release of the game, whether this was planned from the start or was an apology gift for the empty ending of Mass Effect 3 is not known but what we do know is that the same “anonymous” tipster who spilled the games on the previous multiplayer DLC pack has returned again with news of not one but two upcoming DLC packs including the highly anticipated “Extended Cut” DLC which includes new endings for the games.
