A quirky tale of a PS3 owner’s struggle to play PS3 after a disastrous YLOD, told through a sackboy… click here for the full story.
Honestly I’m disappointed that there isn’t a Predator related item. Don’t get me wrong the Facehugger is pretty cool. But what about the die hard Predator fans? Other than that, the Hunter Edition looks pretty sweet. The Release date for Aliens vs Predator is February 16th, 2010. The Hunter Edition includes the following:
Four Multiplayer maps (before they release to the general public), a fully articulated and disturbingly creepy Facehugger model, Weyland Yutani sleeve badge, and a 3D lenticular postcard. Dark Horse Comics featuring the original Aliens vs Predator comic. Collectible Steelbook packaging. To sweeten the deal, if you pre-order you can pick up some exclusive skins for all three species in multiplayer.
The movie poster came from the Warner Bros. site, keep an eye on that page for any updates. I’m not getting my hopes up for this movie though, but I will see it. There has been so many bad video game movies. The Tekken Anime was ok I guess. The people they picked for the roles fit the characters pretty well though. The movie will be released in Japan, March 2010.
Based on the long running and highly successful Namco video game franchise of the same name, TEKKEN is a high-octane, action packed thriller written for the screen by Alan McElroy (Spawn, The Marine) and to be directed by Dwight Little (Anacondas, Murder at 1600) with fight choreography tentatively by Dion Lam (Spider-Man 2, Doom, Red Cliff).
Set in 2039, the film promises non-stop high flying action as the greatest fighters from around the world come to compete in the last and greatest sporting event of all time, the Fist Tournament. After World Wars destroy much of civilization as we know it, the remaining territories are no longer run by governments, but by corporations the mightiest of which is Tekken. In order to keep the masses down, Tekken sponsors the Iron Fist Tournament in which fighters compete to the death for ultimate glory and receive a lifetime of stardom and wealth.

Looks like it’s coming along nicely. This is a must have for me, I’ve been wanting a next gen version since AVP2. Technically this is AVP3, but they are calling it Aliens vs Predator. Hopefully they do it justice. Which will you be? Hunter, Survivor or Prey? I’ll try out all 3, but my all time favorite is Predator. Look for me in the shadows, mwhahahaha.
Alright folks, this week we have the new Pirates of the Caribbean level and costume packs available for purchase. The level pack grants you access to the Water tool, but keep in mind, you do not have to have the tool in order to play on Water-based levels (just like the Painterator from the Metal Gear Solid pack). Also coming this week is Polar Panic (on the US store) and a bunch of sales. Sega will be having a super sale in the US store as well (as announced on the official blog). Hustle Kings is also hitting the EU store (no word on the US store yet), so if you’re into Billiards, it might be worth checking out. The Beatles Rubber Soul album is also hitting the EU store for the Beatles Rock Band, which the US received last week. There are plenty of other things to check out, so be sure to read on, as there might be something else that interests you (Vagrant Story anyone?).
