    Tales of Symphonia Chronicles coming to PS3

    My husband and I played the heck out of Tales of Symphonia for the Gamecube. Today in Japan, series producer Hideo Baba announced that both Tales of Symphonia and its sequel Dawn of the New World are coming to the PS3 as a single HD release. Yay! Even better, Baba wants to make sure the release comes to the US and Euro in early 2014. Even better the new version will contain content changes from the PS2 version that never made it to the US. I am very excited about this and the opportunity to play through the game again with my husband. [source: Japanator] Follow

    Assassin’s Creed III reveals exclusive PS3 content with Benedict Arnold

    Ubisoft and Sony have revealed the PS3-exclusive content for Assassin’s Creed III will include four exclusive single-player missions featuring the infamous American traitor, Benedict Arnold. Connor will be sent to hunt down Arnold in what sounds like a (fairly) historically accurate scenario. From the official description: The PS3-exclusive four-mission arc begins with a special request from General Washington in exposing a rumored plot to overthrow West Point, a critical link in the defense of the Colonies against Great Britain. Across four missions, Connor will flush out Loyalist spies and work undercover for Benedict Arnold, culminating in a full-blown assault on West Point that Connor must halt at all costs. For those who slept through American History in high school, Fort West Point was a strategic point in the Revolutionary war, as American forces attempted to block British ships from the Hudson River. Benedict Arnold was the general assigned to Fort West

    ‘Crysis 3’ will be available next spring

    Crytek and EA’s Crysis 3 was super-officially announced today for a spring 2013 release. In it, you’ll play as “Prophet,” who discovers that New York City’s been covered with…well, a giant dome. (All I can think here is “Simpsons did it!”) But, unlike The Simpsons, this dome has turned NYC into an actual rainforest with rivers, swamps and huge trees. Basically, it’s nothing like the NYC we know now, and you’ll need special weapons like a composite bow and special alien technology just to stay alive. Because it’s literally a jungle out there. “Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love,” said Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. “Leveraging the latest CryENGINE technology, we’re able to deliver seven unique themes that offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game.”
