Ubisoft have announced today that a demo for their new Tom Clancy game  H.A.W.X. will be coming to the PlayStation Store this coming Thursday. The demo will contain two levels from Ubi’s latest game under the Tom Clancy brand, but how will it hold up against more prominent flight-based games Ace Combat and WarHawk? Well we’ll have to wait and see on that one. Hit the jump for the screenshots.

Riddick: Dark Athena Release Date Confirmed, Demo On The Way by Anthony Barlow

[By Anthony]

Good news for all you Riddick fans, the final release date has been confirmed and it’s also been revealed there’s a demo on the way. The game is coming on April 7th in North America with the demo coming in early March to give players a heads up on what the game is like. Assault On Dark Athena is partly a remake of the original Chronicles Of Riddick game (Escape From Butcher Bay) with a whole host of new content added in. It looks and sounds pretty cool, watch this space. I think this one will be one of 2009’s sleeper hits.

Sony have announced that a set of Sackboy action figures will be hitting shelves courtesy of Mezco Toys. The figures are four inches tall and will be released this spring. Alongside these smaller figures, Mezco will be releasing special edition figures ranging from eight to twelve inches tall. Sony have also said that they’re still working on Sackboy plushies, now that would be much cooler.

FIFA 09 Winter Update, Out Now by Ad's

UPDATE: The update is now out, to get it go to Adidas Live Season and download the latest update. If it comes back saying you have the latest update go to league selection and click on the league of your choice. I chose the Premier League so I clicked on that and downloaded the latest update from there.

EA’s David Rutter has confirmed that the FIFA 09 Winter Update will be delayed due to a small bug. They are hopeful that it will be released either today or tomorrow.

I’m particularly looking foward to it as my beloved United will hopefully have had their stats changed to a more realistic level, Danny Welbeck a 64 for gods sake and Berba deserves more than an 86. Also Edwin’s rating has gone down drastically on the inaccurate Adidas Live Update, this after keeping 13 consecutive Premier League clean sheets.

It will also update the transfers that took place during the January transfer window. Tosic to Utd, Keane back at Spurs, Becks to Milan etc. Full quote from the FIFA forum after the jump. Continue reading

Capcom have today confirmed that Dead Rising 2 is on it’s way and will be set years after the original in a place called Las Vegas Fortune City. It is being developed in partnership with Canadian developer Blue Castle Games.

It will be coming to the PS3, PC and 360 and if they have fixed the save system it will be a sure fire hit across all 3 platforms. The first game is probably the best game I played on the 360 and I will definitely be buying this for my PS3.

Full press release after the jump.

SOCOM Gets A European Release Date by Anthony Barlow

Slant 6’s SOCOM: Confrontation has finally been given a European release date. The question is…is anyone arsed? I think not. Those living in North America have been able to play the game since late last year. Although it looked promising at first, it didn’t live up to what it could’ve been and it’s ‘problematic’ release didn’t help either.

Either way, if you’re living in Europe and, even with the above comments and the less than impressive review scores (click here to to see Giancarlo’s verdict), you want to play it’s coming out on March 13th…and subsequently going up against Resident Evil 5. I guess it was going to flop anyway, releasing it then gives Sony an excuse.

Sniper Rifle = Good

Sniper Rifle = Good

Zen Studios’, PSN-exclusive, Punisher: No Mercy is coming to the PS3 this spring. Not only did the press release contain the release window info but 6 new screenshots full of explodey goodness. When it was originally announced I was a little skeptical, but looking at these screenshots I think it could actually be good. Check out the screens above and below.
