The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, the new investigation video game developed for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC by Frogwares, today unveiled a new video teaser!
This video immerses us in the dark ambiance of the game, in which the very personality of the famous detective is explored, and his true nature called into question. If Doctor Watson’s faith in Sherlock is reputedly unwavering, it will eventually fade and doubt will quickly set in as Holmes begins to act ever-more strangely. The video successfully carries the feeling of doubt concerning Sherlock Holmes, a feeling that will soon be felt by players as well as they progress through the investigation!
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is set for an early 2012 release. Hit the jump for more info on this upcoming game.
SackBoy’s next adventure through CraftWorld may be on the small screen but according to Executive Producer Pete Smith it’s still one “crazily big” game. Speaking to NowGamer at the PS Vita Experience event last week, Smith stated that LittleBigPlanet Vita is bigger than both PlayStation 3 versions of the platformer.

Know what’s a great way to celebrate the week after thanksgiving? With no retail releases for either PS3 or PSP! That’s right, this week you’ll all have to make do with offerings from the digital realm of gaming entertainment.
The highlight for the week is the Sly Collection being made available on the PSN Store either in a bundle or as separate purchases. Price is the same in the end (actually, it’s $0.03 more expensive in the bundle) and you can choose to get one of the 3 games or go all the way and the the collection itself. This is great news for those that can’t track a physical copy of the digital release as it was released with a very small print run.
On the other hand… we get a Voltron game! Indeed, the 80’s are back in style!
What made the cut for this week? Let’s find out!
EA has released a gameplay trailer of the upcoming Back to Karkland expansion pack for their top selling Battlefield 3 title. The forklift had me rolling when I watched it this morning.
No release date has been given just yet but those who have bought the title new will be entitled to this expansion absolutely free.
After the recent success of Motorstorm Apocalypse, Evolution studios has decided to release its second foray into the handheld genre, Motorstorm RC. The game has players controlling RC cars on sixteen tracks taken from all previous Motorstorm games. Its the best of both worlds, with an arcade-like racing experience, and modern day online compatibility. It will be released Spring 2012 as a PSN only downloadable title, but it will be playable on both the Vita and PS3, including a four-player split-screen mode on the PS3.
Split-screen has slowly been dying over the years, so it’s good to know that split-screen is being included in this downloadable title. Cross-platform play has not been confirmed, but it has been strongly hinted at. Game developers should take a hint and start bringing back this feature. More details after the jump
