SSX may be the last EA title Game and Gamestation stock. It has been confirmed that Game will not be releasing the highly anticipated game due to supply issues. For those who per-ordered the game, you will have the chance to have £5 worth of rewards points added to your Game loyalty card. Unfortunately it looks like Mass Effect 3 isn’t the only title that Game won’t be stocking with other titles like Fifa Street or Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 also looking unlikely to be released through the Game Group. The collectors edition of Mass Effect 3 will be available instead through other retailers such as Amazon. Read more
On Monday we reported that EA’s SSX would have a demo released the following day for North America PS3 owners with Europeans having to wait until later in the week. The demo was also stated to arrive on Xbox 360 but, at the time it was unknown whether it would only be available to those with Gold Live accounts.
With the demo now out on Xbox Live, we can now confirm that yes, you do need to have Xbox Live Gold member status to download the demo. If you haven’t got Gold already, Microsoft have an offer on where you can get 2 months Gold for £2. Which, if you can’t wait until release day to try the game, is a really good deal, especially as 48 hour trial codes unfortunately don’t allow you to download the demo. Read more
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. Read more
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. Read more
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. Read more
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.
The Zavvi eBay store can be found here: ZAVVI OUTLET
Just been looking on eBay and I came across some £8.99 bargains from the Zavvi Outlet that I thought were good enough to share with other gamers including:
- Dragon Age 2
- Just Cause 2
- UFC 2010
- Bioshock 2
Full range of titles on offer can be found here: ZavviOutlet eBay
All for the Xbox 360, all at £8.99 brand new. Most are from the ‘Classics’ range of games and most are cheaper on this offer than Ive managed to find them elsewhere so far. Postage is free too so, you could grab a bargain!
