You’ll be able to get your first taste of Red Faction: Armageddon this coming May 4. Volition and THQ have confirmed that the game’s demo will be appearing on Xbox Live Marketplace and PSN on this day.
Despite the fact that Armageddon’s PC port is being developed in-house, this demo will not be making an appearance on the PC. When asked if there were plans to release a PC demo, Volition’s community dude J Goldberg replied with a somber “unfortunately, no,” over Twitter.
It’s official: Alma Wade don't give a damn about your calendar. The horror shooter being developed at Day 1 Studios is now slated to arrive on June 21, a representative at Warner Bros., the game's publisher, confirmed to me this morning. F.E.A.R. 3 has been postponed for, ironically, a third time.
Previously, F.E.A.R. 3 was slated to hit this May. Before that, the multi-platform game was slated for a March 22 release. Before even that, Alma's return was slated to hit in the fall.
Yet another Hydrophobia re-release is on the horizon. Earlier this morning, creator Dark Energy Digital announced Hydrophobia Prophecy, a Steam and PSN-bound “comprehensive reinvention” of the original Xbox Live Arcade release. As such, Prophecy features new levels, new puzzles, a re-tooled narrative, and even several technical enhancements like better lighting, textures, and animations.
The title is slated to hit both networks this coming May 9, and you can spend your idle time waiting for it by reading the freaky list of tweaks, fixes, and additions to Prophecy on the game's official Web site.
As Sony investigates the “external intrusion” linked to the service’s continued downtime, the fact that you can’t play games over PSN may be the least of your worries. At the moment, Sony is unable to determine if someone has collected your credit card number or other bits of identifying personal information, a company spokesperson told PC World.
On Sunday, Sony said it was rebuilding the PSN to “further strengthen our network infrastructure.” In an update published today on the official PS blog, Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold said he has no update on when the service will be offered again to users, but Sony is working to get PSN “online quickly.”
While you were asleep, Nintendo confirmed plans to release a brand new console in 2012. The device will make its first public (and playable!) appearance at E3 2011, which kicks off this June 7 in Los Angeles.
The official word comes via a brief note released on Nintendo’s Japanese investors relations Web site. The document is a stiff pairing of paragraphs that, unfortunately for us, reveal nothing more than the fact that Nintendo plans to release a successor to the Wii in 2012.
Recent speculation that the original Alice game, American McGee’s Alice, was headed to consoles in some fashion was confirmed today. In a press release, EA announced that each sealed copy of the sequel, Alice: Madness Returns, is shipping with a one-time use Online Pass that’ll give access to a downloadable version of the original game, day and date with the release of Madness on June 14.
There's a couple of catches to be aware of. The original Alice, at least initially, will not only require an Online Pass, but the Madness Returns disc. Also, Alice won’t be available on XBLM and PSN in a traditional sense--you’ll need to download it through Madness Returns’ menu.
