To celebrate the launch of Dynasty Warriors 7, Tecmo Koei America and Omega Force have a couple of surprises for everyone.
The Japanese voice track will be available as free DLC for both versions in North America, along with a collection of free costumes. There will also be a paid DLC coming soon. More details to come, so check back here often!
Interested in L.A. Noire? Like free DLC? Well, word on the street has it that if you purchase L.A. Noire through Wal-Mart, starting on the 17th of May, you will get a coupon for the “A Slip of the Tongue” traffic case, which is exclusive to Wal-Mart purchasess only. Can’t make up your mind? Check out the video below to see what it’s all about!
Virtual Tennis will have exclusive Legends and mini games only found on the PS3. The first one up is an old classic in the form of “Pin Crasher”. This one is controller-only, but there is a Move-specific game, “Net Blitz”, where you return balls into small nets for points. Take a look below:
Virtua Tennis 4 is made by Sega of America and will be retailing for $49.99. Great price point, Sega! The game will be released 5-10-11, and will feature 1:1 Move support and 3D (if you’re lucky enough to own one of those fancy, futuristic televisions), newly re-done Multiplayer and online center, and a host of mini games (as was just discussed). Does this appear to be the one to get over Top Spin?
Just last night, game developer for the new Duke Nukem game, George Broussard, tweeted that Sony Online Entertainment Seattle may be closed today.
Here are a few of his tweets:
Word that Sony Online Entertainment Seattle is having lay-offs and that studio closure is possible
To be more clear, the lay-offs may be SOE wide and not just limited to Seattle. So, Austin, San Diego, etc.
SOE Seattle and other studios (Denver is rumored) will be closed tomorrow. Good luck to all impacted
According to CVG, SOE will be closing down Seattle, Tucson, and Denver, while laying off close to a 3rd of its staff.
Smedley even went on to say that they had 115 people working on the game with 50 reserved for post-launch patches.
So what do you all think? Do you think this game is canned or moved to another studio? Either way, its bad to hear about all of the layoffs.
Featured offers for PlayStation Plus subscribers will be coming down on April 5th, so you have until then to take advantage of what has been offered.
Sonic the Hedgehog will be returning to $4.99, so grab it if you already have not.
Wakeboarding HD is going to be $9.99 unless you grab it at its current price of $3.99. The game is fun and is a solid purchase in my eyes.
Swarm is heading on up to $14.99, so if you aren’t sold yet from our numerous articles on it, you should be; currently at $11.99.
Mini Squadron PlayStation minis is $1 until the 5th, so grab it and add it to your collection (unless you plan on spending an extra dollar to get it later at $1.99).
Mega Man 3 is at $3.00, and can be found under the PS1 Imports section; it will be returning to $5.99.
