    Ubisoft Wants You to Learn About the Next Assassin’s Creed Game from Abstergo

    Ubisoft is inviting you inside Abstergo Industries to get a look at some weapons. There’s also a little game that nets you a prize if you’re in the market for some Assassin’s Creed wallpaper. What’s all of this for? Well, most people are guessing that it’s for an Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood reveal, and the clock in the upper-left is a pretty good confirmation of that. We’ll probably know in about 12 hours then, hm? One guess right now (completely confirmed by the real box art that popped up, by the way) is that the game might actually contain a female playable character. Well, it’s not like anyone who isn’t a lady uses a fan as a weapon anyway, right? (Please prove me wrong with fan art or otherwise. I want amusement.) Follow

    “Play, Create, Share” Is Taken to the Next Level: LittleBigPlanet 2 is Announced

    Today, SCEA announced its plans via an official press release to release Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet 2. Some of the promised features include a new storyline, better graphics, and more accessories for your Sackperson. One of the biggest draws promises to be in the “Create” part of the triumverate – you’ll be able to make entire new games instead of just levels this time. Want to make your own Sackperson pinball game? Go for it. Recreate Space Invaders? Why the heck not? You get the same tools that the developers have, and this time you get even more control. You can add cutscenes and multiplayer elements, as well as Sackrobots for players to interact with. Of course, with all of these fun levels and sagas to explore (including everything made using the first game), you can probably spend a ton of your time on playing the game. They’re making it even

    Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 on the PSP

    So, I was able to sit in on a demo for the PSP version of Persona 3 coming out at retailers and on PSN July 6th this year.

There is a bit of a space issue when you’re taking a console game and trying to change it to be played on the PSP, so one of the first noticeable changes is going to be the lack of cut scenes. Mostly though, there’s quite a bit that they’ve changed to make the game a bit more accessible for players to really streamline the play experience. With traditional RPGs on a console, you have a bit more time, but when you talk about moving it to a portable device – they’ve worked on streamlining the experience so you can spend more
