New Images Of Shadow of the Colossus Costumes For LittleBigPlanet

Yesterday, you might have seen Media Molecule’s teaser trailer for the upcoming Team ICO DLC pack for the cuddly platformer LittleBigPlanet. The developers also revealed the costume designs for the characters of Ico and Yorda from the Ico portion of the DLC. Well today, Media Molecule have released some design pictures of a few of the Shadow of the Colossus costumes players can expect to see.

The three costumes on display are those for protagonist Wander and two colossi, Quadratus and Gaius. The Team ICO DLC pack includes stickers, costumes and sound effects based on both Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, and will be available on the PSN Store tomorrow for an as-of-yet undisclosed price.

Anyone working on a Shadow of the Colossus level for LBP right now?


Metal Gear Solid: Rising not exclusive to xbox 360

Posted in Video games with tags , , , , on June 1, 2009 by trevdog54

Microsoft debuted the first details on Metal Gear Solid Rising at their E3 press conference this morning, but there’s a reason Microsoft wasn’t bragging about this Raiden-starring adventure being an Xbox 360 exclusive — it isn’t.

“You know, we didn’t say that it was exclusive,” clarified Xbox executive and corporate VP John Schappert (he was the guy hosting most of the event) during an interview  immediately following the press conference.

“We said that the next Metal Gear will be coming [to Xbox 360],” he said.

“I couldn’t be more excited about him [Kojima] working on that [Metal Gear Solid Rising] and having that be part of our show,” said Schappert. “When I heard about that, I was pretty ecstatic and it was an honor to be able to be on stage with him and announcing his next Metal Gear, which will be on Xbox 360.”

Of course, Schappert wasn’t in a position to announce where else Metal Gear Solid Rising would be appearing, but could series creator Hideo Kojima be pleasing everyone by announcing this latest work at one conference, showing it at another? We’ll have to wait and find out tomorrow morning at Sony’s E3 conference.

And thus, the waiting game continues.

PSP go Confirmed

Posted in Electronics, Video games with tags , , , on May 30, 2009 by trevdog54

Whoops! Looks like the June episode of Sony’s PSN show Qore has been released early, showing up in the download histories of subscribers. In it, the heavily rumored PSP go has been confirmed. We’ve assumed this was real for a while now, with many of  editors putting the PSP go announcement in their E3 predictions.

The PSP go will sport a 3.8″ screen, 16GB of internal flash memory (upgradable), Bluetooth, and a 43% weight reduction. Here’s where it gets interesting, though. The PSP go will NOT replace existing PSP models and Sony will still sell games on UMD. Could this be where the rumored digital rental service comes into play? There is still no information on how users will be able to turn their UMD games into digital games, if Sony even allows them to do so.

Also mentioned in the leaked video is Gran Turismo Portable and a new Metal Gear Solid PSP game, but further information will come during E3. There has been speculation that Kojima Productions will be announcing both a console and portable Metal Gear at E3 with interactivity between the possible PS3 and PSP releases.

Sony Announces PS3 compatible Ericson phone

Aino Cell Phone

Finally, Sony has leverage the synergistic possibilities between its PlayStation division and its Ericsson cell phone department…partially. The long-rumored PlayStation compatible phone is actually coming. The Aino mobile phone will be out later this year, and features a “Remote Play” features that allows users to access media stored on their PS3 console via a local network or the internet. You know, like you have on your PSP.

If you were hoping for a powerful, Sony handheld gaming device that also allows you to call your friends, this isn’t it… at least, I don’t think this is it. No mention of gaming is made in the Aino press release Sony sent out, so it’s possible the company is waiting to make a huge splash with the news at E3 this year. It’s not that likely, but it’s possible.

Gaming or now, the Aino is a fully functioning smart phone that will allow media streaming and other bells and/or whistles. The phone’s specs and feature are below the cut. Continue reading

Wolfenstein coming August 4th

'Wolfenstein' Coming On August 4

Grab your calendars and your best Nazi-killing boots, kiddies, because BJ Blazkowicz is coming your way sooner than you might think. Thanks to a pre-E3 press release, Activision has revealed that the super-naturally charged Wolfenstein will be hitting stores on August 4 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Just to make that date seem farther away, here’s a quick game summary:

Wolfenstein brings the Nazi’s dark obsession with the occult to life, by intertwining fast-paced, intense story-driven combat with a diverse sci-fi experience. As BJ Blazkowicz, a highly decorated member of the Office of Secret Actions (OSA), you are sent on a special mission into the heart of the Third Reich to investigate evidence that the SS hierarchy may possess a new and mysterious power.”

Other highly anticipated Activision titles such as Blur and Singularity still have no official release dates, but here’s hoping that might change come E3 next week.
