Alone In the Dark: General Information

29 05 2008

Alone In The Dark

Taking the fear to a new level, the next-gen Alone in the Dark features the macabre style of the series played with new gameplay mechanics and a broader-reaching, action-packed play style. Explore fully-interactive realtime worlds, interacting with physics and roaming the wide-open, fright-filled environments.

The release date for the game is June 24, 2008. The PS3’s AITD game release may not be 24 June, 2008 as the release date is yet to be announced. The game will be published on the following consoles:

• PS2
• PC
• XBOX 360
• Wii
• PS3

This next-gen Alone in the Dark is also built around a unique episodic game structure — the story is split into a number of distinct 30-40 minute episodes, doled out one at a time as you play. Each time the player launches a saved game, the episode will begin with a video summary of the previous episode to quickly re-immerse the player in the story and removing the need to remember where they were or what they were doing. Every episode will close with a nail-biting cliff-hanger ending to rattle players’ nerves, and if the player is leaving the game a video teaser of the next episode will play to leave them wanting more.

PlayStation Home v0.86 Images Leaked

26 05 2008

PlayStation Home
14 screenshots of what PlayStation Home to be were leaked. Due to copyright issues, we cannot post them on the site - sorry.

One of the images displays the new area called the “Media & Events Space”. This looks like an area where PlayStation-related media will be displayed and available for download. What can we expect to be in the “Media & Events Space” center? It sounds interesting.

The open PlayStation Beta is to be released sometime later in the year, until then we’ll have to sit back and wait as we countdown to Home.

Site Announcement

18 05 2008

Just to let you know, sorry I haven’t been filling the blog with gaming posts recently, I’m struck down with exams :(

Once the exams are all done, the site will be revamped, and many new features will be brought to the site! One major feature we’re going to be adding is that all gamers out there can share their own game media with others. This means that users will be able to upload their own media, which includes videos, save datas, cheats etc! Before these features come to the site, a select few people will be invited to try out the BETA before the new features go live. If you’re interested, email me.

The site will also be given a new look, so stay tuned and watch this space for more announcements.

GTA 4 Guinness World Record holder!

13 05 2008

Grand Theft Auto 4 has been announced as a Guinness World Record holder for two categories: Highest Grossing Video Game in 24 Hours, and Highest Revenue Generated by an Entertainment Product in 24 Hours.

GTA 4 recorded a total of 3.6 million unit sales worldwide on its first day, which totals to roughly US$ 310 million in revenues. By comparison, Bungie’s Halo 3, the previous record holder, earned around US$ 170 million on its first day. It’s not just within gaming that GTA 4 reigns as king for that matter - its first-day sales records also beat out Spidey and Potter’s latest movie and books sales, respectively:

* Fastest-selling theatrical movie in 24 hours: Spider-Man 3 at US$ 60 million
* Fastest-selling book in 24 hours: Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows at US$ 220 million

Technical issues and controversy aside, you can’t deny that Grand Theft Auto 4 has already left its mark on the entertainment industry. Check back again in case we receive any further related news.
