It’s not long until EA’s SSX is released but, for those of us who can’t wait any longer (myself included), an SSX demo will be released tomorrow 21st February for Xbox 360 and for PlayStation 3 users in North America, while other countries will see the demo later in the week. The demo will let you play as Zoe and Mac will be unlockable through a referral program but, the details on that are yet to be released. There will be two tutorials you can play through as well as two events and skydiving.
It’s not “all” about E3 when it comes to gaming expos. There’s no denying that E3 is the big gaming event of the year but, for those who live in the UK, what are the alternatives that you can actually attend? The biggest UK gaming Expo is hosted by Eurogamer and is traditionally held each year around September in London. Most gaming events in the UK take place in the capital but, again there are alternatives and there may be a gaming convention near to you.
UK Supermarket Morrisons have reduced the price of the Sony PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 in a bid to clear out excess stock left over from Christmas.
The offer allegedly runs for three weeks or until stock runs out which is quite likely to be far less than three weeks. The sale prices are listed below:
PS3 slim 160GB – £150
PS3 250GB with Karate Kid Blu-Ray – £200
Wii – £85
Wii Mario Kart bundle – £85
Xbox 360 4GB + Kinect £185
Xbox 360 250GB £150
To avoid disappointment, it’s best to ring your local store to see if they have any consoles left in stock.
I’m not quite sure how I missed this nugget of news but, Sega have confirmed that Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 2 will be released sometime this year. Sega have unveiled the logo design for Sonic 4 Episode 2 and have also released a trailer of the upcoming game.
Sonic 4 Episode 2 continues where Episode 1 left off which was released 2010. We see Metal Sonic return as well as Sonic’s pal Tails. You can view the trailer for Sonic 4 Episode 2 below.
Following on from their recent Xbox 360 promotion, retailer Zavvi are now offering selected PS3 titles at a discounted price on their eBay outlet store.
Titles such as Flashpoint: Red River, Homefront, Prince of Persia Trilogy, 007: Blood Stone and Yoostar 2: In the Movies are available at £9.99 which includes shipping which, on some of the games available, compared to the prices of some of the titles in other UK stores, is a bit of a bargain.
