This game hasn’t been widely advertised and I have yet to see it featured on popular websites. The Bleach series is coming to the PS3 in the form of Bleach: Soul Resurrection. Here’s the announcement trailer along with some awesome game play. This really looks like your controlling an Anime.
The game also ships with redeemable voucher codes for 3 episodes of Bleach anime on PlayStation Network for the die hard fans of the series. Here is a look at the Product details:
Insomniac Games had launched a Free to play, RTS like, game entitled Global Resistance. The Game will put you in control of humans or Chimerans battling your way to defend or conquer the planet.
Its worth mentioning that Global resistance will help you unlock bonuses for Resistance 3 that includes, but not limited to, exclusive multiplayer skins, in-game titles and boosters. You can also unlock content for Global Resistance when you play Resistance 3 as well.
For more information regarding the gameplay, check out this trailer …
Nintendo have realized that the price they set for the 3DS along with the really “not there” launch lineup were huuuuuuuuuuge factors for the system not selling as much as was expected from the Nintendo DS successor (the best selling portable of all times). About 720,000 3DS units were sold from April to June 2011… worldwide. That is NOT great news for Nintendo investors (they’re sorta mad) and with the Vita from Sony picking up several extra stops on the hype train route AND being priced at a “boy will Sony lose money per unit”$249.99 launch price for the Wi-Fi only model … what can Nintendo do? How about bringing the price down from $250 into a more consumer friendly $169.99 and giving early consumers a GREAT “thank you” by offering them lots of free NES/GBA games for their 3DS instead of being a douche and saying “though luck” to early adopters?

Now when it says your chances of winning it will be accurate. This will make it a lot easier for me to track as well. This is how it will work:

I should feel blessed to be close to such major events that happen in and around the video game industry. What most people don’t know is that the San Diego Comic-Con is a major hub for announcements and reveals. Most people think this is just a nerd convention where some overweight stereotype dresses up in a costume in the middle of the southern California summer. They are wrong my friends.
Comic-Con has something for everyone. Video Game wise, Capcom announced Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Naughty Dog and Sony brought the cast of Uncharted 3 to discuss the game, Batman: Arkham City was being promoted everywhere during the convention, and last but not the least, Hideo Kojima himself making his 3rd appearance to promote the upcoming HD re-release of his famous games.
