Activision Preps A Special GoldenEye: Reloaded Bundle For The PS3

Once again we’re getting a James Bond video game but there isn’t a whole lot of fanfare for it since it’s a mere HD port of an existing game. In a way gamers should still be excited that the recent Goldeneye remake is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 but personally I would’ve preferred an original James Bond such as the one Raven Software was formerly working on. But c’est la vie and having played a bit of GoldenEye 007: Reloaded I’m slightly warming up to the concept of spending some time with a James Bond FPS once more.

House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut - Hands-On [E3 2011]

Zombies are a bit played out at this point since we’ve seen them be used to death in films, video games and most recently TV shows. I’m not saying that everything that features a zombie is a cheap or completely unoriginal thing, but seeing a car commercial that features a zombie in a woeful attempt to be funny or hearing about people going on zombie walks in downtown areas of cities across the U.S. is simply silly and I think it sells zombies a bit short.

House of the Dead Is Finally Making Its Debut On The PS3 This Year

I can finally put my PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter to good use again since Sega has announced a PlayStation 3 port of House of the Dead: Overkill.  Originally for the Wii, HotD: Overkill proved to be one of the best on-rails shooters for the platform since it’s always fun to shoot zombies in the head and the almost profuse potty mouth nature of the game was almost irresistible.  Now Sega is giving PlayStation 3 gamers some on-rails zombie action with House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut.

Insomniac Games Reveals Two Major Additions For Resistance 3

Following in line with pretty much every other major 1st party release, Insomniac Games has revealed that Resistance 3 will support the PlayStation Move + PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter along with featuring 3D support, hence the picture of Insomniac CEO Ted Price and Community Manager James Stevenson looking a bit silly.  The announcement was made today during Insomniac’s special Community Day in which a bunch of lucky gamers got the chance to visit Insomniac’s California studio and see a bunch

PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter may not completely change the way we play games with the PS Move, but the device is a nice addition for those who like to play games with Sony’s motion controller.  While I may not have had the definitive experience when using the Sharp Shooter when playing Kllzone 3, Sony’s new peripheral isn’t just a cheap gimmick and actually has a lot of potential if the software out there is engaging.  With a reasonable price ($39), there isn’t a huge barrier of entry for the Sharp Shooter aside from the amount of worthy action centric PlayStation Move games currently available on the market.  If the amount of thrilling games increase, then the Sharp Shooter is definitely something you may want to look into if you’re an avid lover of motion gaming or want to recreate the vibe of playing arcade lightgun games.

The Pros: 

+ The design of the Sharp Shooter is brilliant and doesn’t feel like a cheap plastic shell.
+ There’s a nice weight to the gun, especially once the PlayStation Move and Nav Con are inserted.
+ Holding the gun and using the Nav Con feels entirely comfortable.
+ Using the Sharp Shooter for games like Time Crisis: Razing Storm or Dead Space: Extraction is really fun.

The Cons: 

- The Square and Triangle buttons are a bit small, at least for my massive fingers.
- When used with Killzone 3, I really didn’t find things to be amazing.
- I wish the secondary fire trigger had more of a click to it or more resistance, if only to prevent accidental firings during certain occasions. Rating : 

A lot of things have changed over the years as we play games and the industry continues to evolve.  The games we play get bigger, better, more pleasing from a visual perspective and the way we play games has changed as well.  If you told anyone during the heyday of the PS2 era that one day we would have three different consoles that would all support motion gaming in various forms, I think someone would tell you to stop smoking whatever it was you decided to take a puff of.  But here we are, in the bright and always optimistic (ok, sometimes optimistic) year of 2011 and the v

Sony Gets Gamers Ready For Duty With SOCOM 4: Deployment Edition

SOCOM 4 is almost within reach as its two months away from finally hitting retail.  With the multiplayer beta expected to launch shortly, Sony has announced a little something for gamers who want the complete PlayStation Move enabled SOCOM 4 experience.  Slated to hit on April 19th is the SOCOM 4: Deployment Edition, which sadly doesn’t include a pair of dog tags, some cammo clothing or a dudebro style bandana.  Instead of some slightly superfluous bonus content, the Deployment Edition is pretty much a bundle of sheer awesomeness for gamers who haven’t jumped aboard the PlayS

Sony announces release dates for Socom 4 and PlayStation Move Heroes

As earlier reports indicated, Sony has finally revealed when the PlayStation Move centric PlayStation Move Heroes and the next installment of the popular Socom franchise will be released.  After being delayed from its original Holiday 2010 release window, the next installment of Zipper Interactive’s Socom franchise will be ready for duty in April.  Socom 4 could become a huge title amongst PS3 gamers since it’s from a beloved franchise and also because the game supports the PlayStation Move and the recently revealed
