Playstation MOVE

Alright, everyone was hype over the E3's expo of the newest Kinect and Playstation Move. So.... What's your point of view? For me.... Well I found out that I'm not really interested on it. Why? Well basically is almost the same idea from Nintendo Wii's concept, but in High Definition (HD) only. That's all. Until we see what kinda release that it'll bring, I think we just hold our horse now. In the meantime check out the Playstation Move's video provided and see what's going in the stores in this few month coming. 



At the end of the video, check it out. Let see... Move Motion Controller, PS3 Eye Camera, Move Navigation Controller, Move Charging Station, Move Shooting Attachment. These are all the things that you need for you to start it out. Not forgetting the consoles as well. Crap they're coming out with the new 160GB and 320GB. Does it worth to play the HD motion games? Well you decide. Currently the only game that interests me is this. Listen to the song and I can 90% sure the rapper was the Hongkong duo called 'FAMA'. Check out the video too.

VANQUISH

Category : Third-Person Shooter

Creator : Platinum Games

Platform : PS3 and Xbox360

Company : SEGA

Release Date : 21st October 2010 (JP) and December 2010 (N.A)


Synopsis (from Play-Asia) : The story of VANQUISH™ is set in the near future. Russia and the United States are vying for ownership of the world’s fast-depleting energy resources and the US has constructed a space station in order to harness energy from the sun. Russian forces capture this space station and divert its harvested solar energy into a blast wave that destroys San Francisco, aiming to force the US into a total and unconditional surrender. In response, the US tasks its armed forces with recapturing the space station before the Russians can annihilate their next target – New York.


IMHO this going to be a fast-paced shooter. Faster than Lost Planet in the same time the concept is almost like Lost Planet. I really enjoy Lost Planet (will be getting LP2 soon) so I myslf have some high-expectation on it too. Too bad is going to release on Japan before it hits North America. For those who can't wait any longer than the N.A release well get your Japanese version for PS3 and Xbox360. If you have more game to indulge before you want to rapid-fire on your thumbs then check the N.A version for PS3 and Xbox360. Watch the E3 trailer as well. Slurp....!

Sengoku Basara 3 Preview 2


Synopsis (from Play-Asia) : Featuring unique playable characters, as well as supporting generals who will make it easier to command and lead armies, players will see the battle from the perspective of each military commander with the ultimate goal of re-writing history to rule all of 16th century Japan. In the dynamic new "Hero's Story" mode, the player's decisions impact history with a redesigned story mode. Based on choices made by the player, new drama unfolds as friends become enemies, enemies become friends, and a new Sengoku story unfolds. Adding a new strategic element to the game, forces can fight for control/taking over of camps and ultimately entire battlefields.


From my previous post, it seems that it has an international release but in other title. Not sure it is the same content. If you guys can't stand long for this game already, get your pre-orders here for PS3. Wii owner, you might thinking of getting the standalone game or with classic controller pack. Soundtrack are available as well.
