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.
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.
Earlier this year, Sega announced that they would be bringing Sonic CD to the Xbox 360, PS3 as well as mobile devices. It was speculated that Sega would release the game in time for the festive period and that has rung true.
Sega have released Sonic CD on the Xbox 360 for 400 Microsoft points and will be released on the PS3 on December 20th. The price for PS3 owners is currently unknown but, is likely to be around £3. Sonic CD was set to be released on iOS and Android in early 2012 but, Sega have gifted mobile gamers with an early release. The game is now available on the iTunes store for £1.49 or on Android for £1.29. Not only that but, for Xperia Play owners, the game has been optimized for use with the PlayStation controls.
Most of the Sonic games have been re-released other the years on various platforms, as part of compilations or stand alone downloads. On the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the original Sonic the hedgehog is available to download, as well as Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles and the 2011 Sonic game, Sonic the hedgehog 4: Episode 1. One game that always seems to be missed from these releases has been Sonic CD. For all those who have been waiting for Sega to release Sonic CD on the PS3 or Xbox 360, there’s good news. Sega have announced that they plan to convert the Mega CD classic for release on Xbox Live, PSN, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Windows Phone 7, Android and Windows PC Digital Download. At the moment, it doesn’t look like Sega will be bringing the game to the Wii.
The first game from Sega’s Dreamcast digital download service has gone live. Sonic Adventure is the first game to be ported to both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game is available to download on Xbox Live right now and costs 800 Microsoft points, or you can download the trial version. PS3 users will however have to wait a little longer. Sonic Adventure will be made available on PSN from September 22nd and should cost £6.29, 1,000 Yen, or $12.
Both versions offer an enhanced frame rate which renders the the game with twice as many frames as the original Dreamcast release. For the Xbox version, there will of course be achievements but, there will also be avatar items. Where as the PS3 will have PlayStation Home Rewards, as well as Trophies.
For a limited time only, a “femme fatale” fightstick is available to purchase from GameShark. The fightstick brings in a pink and white casing along with the ladies of Street Fighter IV. Only 1000 are being made, distributed between the PS3 and Xbox 360. The PS3 will receive 350 while the 360 gets 650. The fightstick will work with most fighting games. The 360 version will also work on PC fighting games that support 360 controllers.
The Femme Fatal fightstick is currently retailing for $159.99 from GameShark.
Okay, so last weekend I FINALLY got up to major grade 2.
I jumped with joy and humped the air like some horny teenaged loser. I called my husband and told him I finally did it, and then played for 5 hours straight after that.
Two days later
I downloaded the new patch with the new achievements and was totally excited. I then got online and noticed that my rank was gone, I looked at my service record and saw that it was still there before I started pulling my hair out.
I’m an avid 360 gamer and have owned all consoles. Next Gen console wise only have the 360 left after selling the PS3 and Wii. And I’m a little obsessed with Achievement Points. One thing that, annoys me as a Gamer, is the varying difficulty of achievements. I recently wrote an article on 360Crazy.com explaining my thoughts on this. And now, I’m not one to show off – ok I am – but, QueenB submitted it to N4G also. Which to those who don’t know, is one of the biggest, if not biggest, gaming news site (News 4 Gamers see :P). Forget going to the 360 section, or recent stories, it’s been moved from 3rd hottest story to 2nd 😀
