PlayStation 3


Unlike its predecessors, Killzone 3 for the PlayStation 3 was designed specifically to showcase the console’s 3D technology and the new Move accessory. According to IGN, “it controls a lot like a Wii FPS, with the pointer acting both as your cursor and as the means by which you turn the camera.” Videos after the break.

Additional Move specific controls include the ability to twist the Move controller to reload, and the ability to do melee attacks by holding down L2 and pushing forward with the controller. It’s a little jarring to learn the control scheme, especially if you’re used to playing the game with a DualShock.

Activision releases the official Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions launch trailer, giving gamers worldwide a taste of what’s to come on September 7th. In this game, “four different Spider-Men must join forces, square off against their greatest foes and attempt to restore reality as we know it.” Video after the break.

For the past several months we’ve brought you news and impressions of the four different dimensions you’ll play through – Amazing, Noir, Ultimate and 2099. But what we haven’t highlighted as much are the foes you’ll be facing – until now.

SEGA has just released a trailer showing Sonic the Hedgehog 4’s all-new Lost Labyrinth level, in which “most of the action takes place in a series of twisting mazes without fear of drowning.” Video after the break. Click here for more screenshots.

And the one water-heavy level in Act Two has plenty of air bubbles. Drowning won’t be much of a threat, so all those old frustrations didn’t occur for me even in my first playthrough.

According to Treyarch community manager Josh Olin, in addition to “a full multiplayer reveal on September 1, there will be ‘one more thing’ to come, along with a co-op mode reveal before the game’s release on November 9.” We’ll definitely have the trailer for you when it’s released. For now, continue reading for the teaser video released last month.

“To be completely honest, I think that the players are going to be very, very shocked when we reveal our stuff,” he told DS. “I don’t think they’re going to expect this out of Treyarch, because we just haven’t had the time or resources to do something like this. If you look at the size of any other studio that works on two-year development cycle on a first-person shooter, and compare that to Treyarch, we are a Goliath.

In Ubisoft’s latest Assassin’s Creed installment, “Ezio is building a brotherhood of merry assassins in this sequel — they can be summoned to instantly take a guard or two out or they can fight alongside you if you’re feeling overwhelmed.” This game is set for release on November 16th. Videos after the break. Click here for more screenshots.

Members of your brotherhood can be trained by sending them off on their own to complete missions that you’ll never see. Think Final Fantasy Tactics (I had a good feeling!).

In addition to the standard release, EA’s Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit limited edition “delivers six exotic cars; Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, Ford Shelby GT500, Audi TT RS Coupe, Chevrolet Camaro SS, Porsche Cayman S and Dodge Challenger SRT8.” Both editions are slated for release on November 16th, 2010. Videos after the break. Click here for more screenshots.

Available at participating retailers at the same price as the standard version, the Limited Edition packs added value for speed junkies, while supplies last.

In addition to featuring over 1000 vehicles, go-karting “will also make its first ever appearance in any Gran Turismo game to date with its inclusion in GT5.” Video after the break. Click here for more pictures.

Karts, custom tracks, it’s been a big week for Gran Turismo 5 at GamesCom. And if you like screenshots of the game’s garage, online modes, and, yes, its karts, it’s about to get bigger.
