07aug07 PS3 News Roundup
Gamespot has some videos of the 360 version of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. This game is coming out for the PLAYSTATION 3 as well, so I thought some of you might be interested in this. It’s just crazy how many first-person shooters are comming out soon for the PS3.
Next up, IGN has a pretty good interview with the Harmonix folks about Rock Band. Of note, it looks like you’ll be able to sing with a headset as well as with the available microphone. So if you really wanted to, you could both sing and play guitar (or drums) at the same time, like Geddy Lee! As well, if you just care about drums, you can play through the game just on the drums. Or any other instrument of interest, for that matter.
Yet another WWII shooter, Medal of Honor: Airborne, is coming to the PS3 in November. Games Radar has an interesting interview with EA about the game. The whole idea of dropping out of the sky and choosing where to enter battle is interesting to me. Especially because it means that the single player campaign won’t feel so much like you’re on rails.
While on the subject of shooters, please note that while keyboard and mouse support has been confirmed for UT3 on the PLAYSTATION 3, no support has yet been voiced for PC – PS3 play. Check out this interesting interview with Mark Rein about UT3. Can’t wait for those mods!
And last up, N’Gai Croal doesn’t think that the PS3 is the reason for the delay of GTA IV. To sum up: Microsoft could have pushed Rockstar to release GTA IV without PS3.
