This fall, Sega is releasing a second entry in Sonic’s racing series, with Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. The game may seem like a typical racing sequel, however this time vehicles can transform into hovercrafts or jet-planes — Diddy Kong Racing, anyone?
Take a look at the new Comic Con trailer above. The game will release November 20 for Xbox 360, PS3, and Nintendo 3DS.
Also in attendance were Jared Leto, Penn Badgely, and Jared Followill of the band Kings of Leon. Everybody Dance is slated for release this October.

EA has announced that NBA Jam: On Fire Edition will launch on PSN on October 4, and Xbox Live the following day — available for $14.99 or 1200 MS Points.
On Fire Edition is a completely new entry, taking last year’s full priced title and cranking up the features. The game adds a new “Team-Fire” mode, new online co-op campaign mode, updated rosters, new legendary basketball players and playable mascots, and the return of Tag Team mode. The devs are also touting the inclusion of the new R.E.A.L. AI system, said to bring an umatched gameplay experience to the court. Sounds more than worthy of the price of admission.
Are you going to be downloading this new version of Jam?
Kevin Butler, the fake name of the fake SonyVP, is returning to his fake post. Earlier this month, Butler had tweeted that he was leaving his job working as the face of PlayStation to focus on a career in economy flooring. Seemed like natural job progression to me. As the above video shows, Butler’s duties are far from over.
There are more PlayStations to sell now that the console’s received a price cut, and with the fresh new slogan “Long Live Play”, there’s only one man for the job. Butler returns, and the world is now a better place.
The main reason I love the Portal games is because of the unique storyline. Waking up, realizing you’ve been summoned to live your life as a test subject. Although a puzzle game, it’s almost a new genre of survival horror.
Thankfully, someone decided to make a short film based on the video game. Check out the video above. I love how the character realizes the power of the two colored portals, reminding fans of that same sense of wonder and amazement from when we first shot our first portals. If anything, I hope this gets the attention of some studio heads to create a full length feature film.
Thursday afternoon, Capcom hosted another Fight Club event, this time taking over New York City’s Eyebeam Art and Technology Center to show off some upcoming titles. On hand were next week’s Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition, November’s Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and next year’s much anticipated Street Fighter X Tekken.
You really have to hand it to Capcom for putting together these community events. In an age of online multiplayer, Capcom can rally together hundreds of fans on short notice, all for a chance to play some of their games in development. I was able to play all three titles for a fair amount of time, and grabbed some pictures of the event. Check out the full gallery below, and my game impressions below the break!
Certainly a fantastic deal, considering just a week ago the portable non-HD Nintendo 3DS was the same exact price. The price drop certainly makes this one of the most attractive deals for gamers whom also crave a Blu-ray player. Of course, right now my PS3 really is just a Blu-ray player…
James Bond is back, returning to Xbox 360 and PS3 this fall in a game that will appear fairly familiar. GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is an HD remake of last year’s Wii game, which in turn was a remake of the original N64 game, which in turn was made after the popular Bond film of the same name. Got all that?
Aside from pretty HD graphics, the new title will boast a ton of new features for both the campaign and multiplayer, including new maps, new characters, and new weaponry. There will also be support for 16-player matches online. And for motion fans, the PS3 version of the game will support the PlayStation Move.
Here’s the full Activision press release below:
Well it seems like it’s finally time to claim our freebies for or all of us PS3 users out there who have had PSN accounts before April 20th 2011, the risk of being identity theft victims does pay off after all!
In any case here is a list of the content that Sony is offering us as a free download as of today, so head to PSN to claim yours…
PS3 users can choose two free games out of the following:
- Dead Nation

Users of PlayStation Home will get free 100 virtual items with some additional content yet to be announced.
The revamped PlayStation Store that we’ve been hearing about for weeks will make a long-awaited debut on May 24, this according to new reports. The digital hub for downloading fresh new content has been down ever since those hackers reeked havoc on all things Sony. Thankfully, next week will return us to some normalcy.
Next week will likely start the beginning of Sony’s promises “Welcome Back” program which gives PlayStation Network members access to tons of goodies, including free game downloads, free PlayStation Plus access, and free movie rentals. At this point, with all the speed-bumps plaguing the PSN, I’d urge that the arrival of the PlayStation Store should be placed under the “I’ll believe it when we see it” category. Can you blame me?
