If you haven’t picked up a PlayStation Move yet and have a serious hankering for some virtual golf, then the new Tiger Woods 12 Move bundle should be on par with your needs. Sony has officially announced a new SKU priced at $100 which will land you a full copy of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters, a PlayStation Move controller and of course a PlayStation Eye camera. There’s been a ton of Sony motion control bundles released since Move hit the scene, but this one actually looks like the best fit. It definitely beats the copy of Sports Champions that ships with the original bundle, but that’s just our two cents.
Video games seem to hit the torrent scene a few to a couple of weeks before there street dates, but several months is a big deal! Recently torrent trackers have been packed with a unfinished build of the highly anticipated Gears of War 3. Microsoft’s security team has been working with law enforcement trying to sort things out. We’re gonna pitch a little warning to those of you who might be thinking about giving this one a go. Seeing how this is an internal pre-retail build of the game, we expect that they’ll be going all out in making an example out of people caught with this one.
We enjoy a good Gears of War montage like anyone else, but this one holds a special place in our hearts. This minute long massacre features Aaron Griffin whom happens to be voiced by Ice-T. Yes we know ‘Ice Loves Coco,’ but apparently he loves kicking ass as well.
Almost a month ago, Sony had a grand reopening for the PlayStation Network after a malicious attack by internet bad guys. In an effort to apologize to loyal customers Sony assembled a Welcome Back kit, which offered a chunk of free content and games. If you haven’t taken advantage of this offer, you better act fast, because this Sunday is the last day for this offer. All you need to do is visit the PlayStation Store and hit the tab marked “Welcome Back.” Also as another friendly reminder, for those of you who’ve already redeemed your freebies, you may want to make sure your billing for the free PlayStation Plus service isn’t set to auto-renew. Of course if you’ve enjoyed the service, then by all means keep it, but we can already imagine the phone calls Sony is going to get when the auto-renewals start kicking in.
Are you a PS3 owner suffering from Limbo Envy? Have you been playing Little Big Planet Limbo-themed levels in effort to fill that void? It looks like the wait may finally be over. After almost a year of Xbox exclusivity, the artistic platformer could be making its way to the PSN. This rumor comes after a Korean ratings board listed that Sony Computer Entertainment Korea has rated the game. This doesn’t completely seal the deal, but it definitely points things in the direction of a possible announcement. If this does add up, hopefully PlayDead will do what The Behemoth did with Castle Crashers’ PS3 release and add some extra content.
So both of these guys are pretty bad dudes. For years they’ve tried to take down two of Nintendo’s most iconic characters. We’re wondering who would get the win if they were to take on each other? Ganon is a master swordsman and Bowser is a fire breathing turtle (yep he’s not a dragon!). Be sure to cast your vote and leave a comment telling us who gets your vote.
If you’re one of the many planning on picking up Gears of War 3 this coming September and you’ve already finished the last two games, there’s a little something extra waiting for you. Epic Games’ Rod Fergusson told MTV that extras from Gears past will carry over if you have the necessary Achievements. For example if you have the golden Lancer or Hammerburst from the second game, they’ll be available to you in the third game. Fergusson also hinted that there were other extras that will reward people who have played the previous games.
Got plans to pick up an Xbox 360 Kinect bundle this weekend? Want a $100 gift card? Then you want to be sure to head on over to Toys R Us! Starting June 24th and ending on June 25th, you’ll be able to score a $100 Toys R Us gift card with the purchase of a 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect bundle. Now we know this may not top a $100 Walmart gift card, but you can definitely pick up a couple of games for your new system, or do something creative like reserve a PS Vita or Wii U.
When we first saw Kinect a couple of years ago we instantly wondered how first-person action would feel without a controller. In today’s age, everyone seems to associate first-person gaming with military-style shooters. It’s almost as if classic arcade rail shooters have been almost completely forgotten. So what happens when you take a Microsoft’s motion sensor and mix in a little grindhouse action? You walk away with something known as Rise of Nightmares, which reminds us a lot of House of the Dead. Don’t believe us? Take a look for yourself! Full video after the break.
