Is this, extremely poor quality, video (above) the first look at Dead Rising 2. It was sort of confirmed a week or so ago in Famitsu and now we see this video emerge on YouTube. Here’s hoping this is real, it definitely looks it.

We’re getting unconfirmed reports that the, thought to be doomed, developer Free Radical may, in fact, be safe after all. 1Up are reporting that the studio has been bought by none other than CryTek, developers of the original Far Cry and most recently Crysis. This is great news for the Nottingham based studio, that is if it’s true. Here’s hoping it is, they need to redeem themselves after Haze.

A recent post on Media Molecule’s Flikr page seems to have revealed what the company expect to add to the game in the coming weeks and months. The picture above shows some kind of board which contains details of upcoming expansions to LittleBigPlanet. Those mentioned include the ‘Arcade Pack’ and something named ‘2000 BC’ both of which have TBC next to them. Other things mentioned are ‘legal’ (photo importing perhaps) and a patch which is said to bring “new creative capabilities”. Hopefully this wasn’t just a tease from MM. God how we love you and the ever expanding LittleBigPlanet.

The word on the street is (who am I Huggy Bear?) that Tekken 6 will have exclusive downloadable content on the PS3. With the Xbox 360 getting a hold of Sony’s, once exclusive, fighting game franchise it seems only right that Namco Bandai reward more ‘loyal’ fans. Who knows if this is true, although knowing the allegience the devs have to Sony it dosen’t seem too unlikely. Hopefully we’ll here more about this soon.

It looks like the Paradise City police have finally caught on to all the racing that goes in in the city they’re supposed to “protect and serve”. Some footage has appeared on the internet presumably showing a police chase of sorts occuring within Paradise City, leading people to suggest that ‘Pursuit Mode’ will be coming back to Burnout via a patch or DLC. You can see that the something regarding police appeared on the Burnout store in the ‘Ultimate Box’ trailer (see the gallery at the bottom of this post) as well as images of a cop car, one of which tops this post.

It’s Friday “i’m in love”, so maybe we’ll get the skinny from Criterion today. Sounds good though, if what’s being said is right I hope we see it soon.

MadWorld Coming To PS3 (360 Too)? by Anthony Barlow

It looks like Sony (and Microsoft) could be taking another exclusive here. It has been rumored that upcoming, black and white, Wii action game Mad World could be coming to ‘current-gen’ consoles. The game has been denied classification in Australia (like every game and their dog), but what people have noticed is it clearly notes that MadWorld is for the PS3 and 360 too. Of course this could be a mistake, but with the economy down the swanny it makes sense. It actually looks alright (not enough to make me buy a Wii, nothing will do that) but i’d be interested if it made it’s way onto a proper console.

Mass Effect Trilogy Heading To PS3? by Anthony Barlow

Being a dedicated Sony guy, I never played the original Mass Effect and I’m pretty bummed having not. There seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel thouh. Secondstorygamer has a nice little bit of ‘news’ on Mass Effect coming to PS3. I personally thought the suseqent sequels would appear on the PS3 due to EA’s purchase of BioWare last year and looking at this rumor it seems this could be the case. Not only that SSG’s source also apparently said it was “likely” that EA would port the original game to allow PS3 owners who didn’t play the first (like me) a chance to catch up on the story of the games. This is apparently going to be announced at GDC (which starts 23rd March). Here’s hoping it’s true this is something else that could even the odds in terms of the PS3 vs. 360.
