The Sixth Axis did a wonderful job compiling all questions and answers from the European Playstation Blog regarding PS+. It seems like European gamers will get a free download of Little Big Planet when they sign up for a yearly PS+ subscription during the launch, whilst US users will receive 3 extra months, hence enjoying the service for 15 months. Now, which one would you prefer?
Everybody kind of got disappointed by the fact that nothing was revealed at E3 about the upcoming Team ICO’s new masterpiece, The Last Guardian. 1UP asked a Sony representative about that, and he hinted that “there are more events on the calendar than just E3″. So, expect it to be presented at the Tokyo Game Show, from September 16th to September 19th.
According to another representative, “…we just didn’t feel that the timing was right to show that product at this show. We’re going to show it when it’s ready, and when we think that it’s worthy to show…”.
So we’ll wait… By the way, who is heading to Tokyo from PS3Blog this year?
Frozenbyte’s side-scrolling action platform/puzzle game , Trine, ( for PSN & PC) was well received by many when it was released in 2009. It should come as no surprise that a sequel is in the works for the PC, PSN and XBLA this time. Trine 2 will also receive an online co-op option which wasn’t available in the first game.
Trine 2 is set for a Spring 2011 release.
Thanks to GTPlanet for posting this. The video above shows some of the crashes and interior views of the game, giving you an even better look at the astounding visuals the game has. Really, visually, this game is probably going to be about the most realistic looking game this generation, in any genre.
Remember during Sony’s E3 keynote, when Gabe Newell and Valve showed up on stage? Remember when he said that the PS3 will be the best console version of the title you could get? Well, The Kartel got in touch with the developers, one being Erik Johnson, who stated that Valve is planning on cross-platform support between the PS3 and PC/Mac users, but that there were no current plans to have such support on the 360.
Being able to play co-op between a PC user and a PS3 user, for instance, is something that “the team is gunning for.” So with Steamworks and the like heading to the PS3, and include cross-platform support like this, does this mean if we were to get the L4D series, we could theoretically play that cross-platform as well? What about an inevitable Half Life 3?
And who would have thought we would start having positive articles about Valve posted on here?
