    ‘Alice: Madness Returns’ iOS app leads to a $10 discount

    If you’re looking to get a little more of Alice before Madness’ actual Return date of June 14 and you have an iPhone, you’re in luck. EA recently released a storybook app for the game that will serve as a nice preface to the game’s story. Not only that, but it’s full of some pretty nice art, as well. It’s worth money to you if you finish reading, by the way — doing that nets you $10 at the EA Store to put toward an AMR pre-order. (Or you could get the game for the same price at Amazon if you’re without the requisite Apple device. It’s okay, we won’t tell.) Follow

    ‘BioShock’ to go on display at the Smithsonian along with 79 other games

    “The Art of Video Games” is a Smithsonian American Art Museum exhibit that will be on display from March 16, 2012 to September 30, 2012 in Washington, D.C.

    Sony announced this weekend that some PSP titles will be redeveloped specifically for the PS3, and released on Blu-Ray Discs. As these things usually go, it’s starting in Japan. This new category of “PSP Remaster” titles will not only get a visual upgrade, but they’ll also add some new features, like SIXAXIS support and 3D. You’ll also be able to use your PSP filesaves on your PS3, then continue the game while you’re on the road. The PS3 will be adding an “ad hoc for PlayStation Portable” application. Since Japan’s getting the new titles first, it makes sense that the first release will be a very Japanese one — Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD. (They could bring that to other shores, but I’m doubting it, personally — Monster Hunter hasn’t really taken off here.) What PSP titles would you like to see make the jump to the console big brother?
