    How will PlayStation Move work with “Heavy Rain”? This trailer explains it all

    One of the announcements during the Sony press conference on Tuesday that intrigued me the most was the announcement that Heavy Rain would officially have PlayStation Move support. It was rumored, sure, but until the name popped up on the screen behind Peter Dille, it wasn’t confirmed. Heavy Rain is the kind of game that would be really fun to play all over again in a completely different way, and you’ll get to. If you’ve been wondering exactly how that was going to work, Sony released a trailer that includes a couple playing through a couple of the scenes with a Move controller in hand. It appears that having both the Move and the Navigation Controller are necessary to play. The trailer indicates that this will be “Heavy Rain: Move Edition,” so it’ll probably get some kind of repackaging, but if you own the game already, support comes through a

    Disney’s “Little Green Men” E3 flashmob is pretty weird marketing

    At E3, everyone’s usually concerned with the games coming out next year – not something that hit store shelves this week. But Disney was determined to get people to pay attention to the Toy Story 3 game, and what better way than organizing a flashmob when a ton of people are standing around? Over 100 E3 attendees suddenly broke out into a dance routine, all dressed in hats that would make them look like the classic squeeze-toy aliens from the movie series. Disney folks were around to catch it all on tape – the awkward dancing, the surprised looks on the faces of everyone that had no idea what the heck was going on and even the chatter of some ex-dancers after it was all over (for the record, they were totally going to get some hot dogs afterward). Effective marketing, or just plain creepy? You decide. Follow

    Check your calendars: E3 dates set for next year

    Want to go to E3 next year? Well, you’ve got a less than a year to get your travel plans set. The Entertainment Software Association announced today that next year’s E3 will be at the LA Convention Center from June 7-9, 2011. This year’s event had over 45,000 attendees and 300 exhibitors over the course of the three-day expo, so you can expect similar participation at next year’s event. “E3 Expo is the global stage for the interactive entertainment industry, and the 2010 show was reflective of our innovation, growth and vitality,” said Michael D. Gallagher, president and CEO of the ESA, the trade association that represents U.S. computer and video game publishers and owns the E3 Expo. “We are thrilled by the positive news generated by this year’s show, and we are looking forward to building on this great momentum for 2011.” Follow

    Xbox 360 Slim unboxing

    Well based on reports some people sent me yesterday it was rumored that GameStop was going to be doing a pretty good trade in of old 360s for the new Slim. The price list was pretty good with just the base system giving you $100 towards a Slim. You could also trade in other accessories such as the wifi adaptor, HDD and memory cards. After calling and confirming that yes they were offering this trade in and yes they should have some systems in I happily packed up the old 360 and went to the store. Now I was honestly surprised with how much of a trade in I received. I wound up paying less than half of the price of the system even with the 8.8% NY sales tax! I was a bit sad when a crowd started to form once they heard that the system was in fact

    “Leilana’s Song” DLC coming to “Dragon Age: Origins”

    BioWare announced additional Dragon Age: Origins content for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC today. “Leliana’s Song” will cost $7 (or its Microsoft Points equivalent, ya know) and be available on July 6. You will play as Leliana, who, if you didn’t know, is in a criminal ring. Kind of a secretive environment. She’ll accompany her mentor, Marjolaine on a mission and end up in a situation that her good looks and charm just can’t get her out of. (Welcome to real life, honey.) Instead, she’ll have to kill…or be killed. The DLC has fully-voiced cinematics and a reward that transfers into the Awakening and Origins campaign. Follow

    Meet the Peeing Dog Toy

    We’re bringing you all the unique games seen at E3, but in a random news search tonight I found an interesting new toy in Japan. Meet the Peeing Dog Toy. It’s a robotic dog that walks and then pauses to lift its leg and pee. I’m not sure what type of person needs this toy other than for a funny elephant gift (joke gift). Here’s the YouTube video: Follow
