Set in 1912, players assume the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to the flying city of Columbia on a rescue mission. His target? Elizabeth, imprisoned since childhood.

During their daring escape, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond one that lets Booker augment his own abilities with her world-altering control over the environment. Together, they fight from high-speed Sky-Lines, in the streets and houses of Columbia, on giant zeppelins, and in the clouds, all while learning to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, and immersing players in a story that is not only steeped in profound thrills and surprises, but also invests its characters with what IGN called "Emotional ties (that) will continue to set the bar in gaming."

Four Reasons Why Vitas More Popular Than You Think - Playstation Conversation

Sony's Don Mesa spoke to IGN about all things Vita. Here are four statistics he gave us that paint a surprisingly rosy picture for the handheld.

Diablo III for PS3

Diablo III on PS3 (also coming to PS4) will be a specially tailored version of Blizzard Entertainment's epic action RPG, and will include all of the upgrades we've made to the PC version since launch. The PS3 and PS4 versions will completely redevelop the interface, controls, and camera so that the traditional Diablo hack-and-slash, loot-collecting, dungeon-crawl feels natural and fun with a controller in your hands.




Diablo III is an action role-playing video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. It is the third installment in the Diablo franchise that features elements of the dungeon crawl and hack and slash genres.

Diablo III was released in the Americas, Europe, South Korea, and Taiwan on May 15, 2012, and in Russia on June 7, 2012. Diablo III set a new record for fastest-selling PC game by selling over 3.5 million copies in the first 24 hours of its release. It was also the highest selling PC game of 2012, selling more than 12 million copies during the year. It received generally positive reviews from critics, although its digital rights management that requires an internet connection at all times was criticized.

Players have five character classes available; the Witch Doctor, Barbarian, Wizard, Monk and Demon Hunter. New features include an online auction house, which allows players to trade virtual items with in-game gold or real life money, and artisans that can craft materials gathered by the player to create new items.

And the girl he's there to rescue might turn out to be the partner he needs to survive.

FIFA 13 Ultimate Team | Tim Cahill's Ultimate 11

EA SPORTS sat down with Socceroo and NY Red Bull, Tim Cahill, to find out which players would make his Ultimate 11. What do you think about his squad?



FIFA 13 (also known as FIFA Soccer 13 in North America) is the most recent edition of Electronic Arts' highly-acclaimed association football FIFA video game series. It was developed by EA Canada.

The game was released on September 2012 in most regions, and in Japan in October. The Wii U version was released alongside the console on its launch day in all regions.

Lionel Messi was the first person to appear individually on a FIFA game cover in North America for 10 years. It is also the first game to not include Wayne Rooney on the cover of the UK version since FIFA 06.

The UK version of FIFA 13 instead includes Lionel Messi, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joe Hart and with St James' Park, the home of Newcastle United, in the background.

FIFA 13 included new features to the FIFA franchise such as the First Touch Control. New celebrations were also added as a new feature.

Everything You Need to Know About the PS4 (03.01.13)




The PlayStation 4 (PS4) is an upcoming video game console from Sony Computer Entertainment. Billed as the successor to the PlayStation 3, the PS4 was officially announced at a press conference on February 20, 2013. The announcement makes it the second eighth-generation console to be officially confirmed, the first being Nintendo's Wii U. It will also be the fourth game console in Sony's PlayStation series. The PS4 is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Moving away from the Cell architecture, the PlayStation 4 will be the first in the Sony series to feature compatibility with the x86 architecture, specifically x86-64, which is a widely used platform common in many modern PCs. The idea is to make video game development easier on the next-generation console, attracting a broader range of developers large and small. These changes highlight Sony's effort to improve upon the lessons learned during the development, production and release of the PS3. Other notable hardware features of the PS4 include 8 GB of memory and a faster Blu-ray drive.

Among new applications and services, Sony plans to release the PlayStation App, allowing PS4 owners to turn smartphones and tablets into a second screen to enhance gameplay. The company also plans to debut Gaikai, a cloud-based gaming service that hosts downloadable content and games. By incorporating a share button on the new controller and making it possible to view in-game content being streamed live from friends, Sony plans to place more focus on social gameplay as well.

Why Gran Turismo 6 on PS3 Makes Perfect Sense - PlayStation Conversation


A huge install base on PS3 combined with another studio's realistic racing game on PS4 means that GT6 on PS3 makes a great deal of sense. Right?



The Future of PS3

For over a week, we've known for certain what we've long assumed: PlayStation 4 is real, and it's coming out later in 2013. Obviously, the fact that new hardware is on its way raises all sorts of exciting possibilities, but it also draws into question the future of PlayStation 3.

Tomb Raider is a video game franchise which also includes comic books, novels, theme park rides and movies, centring around the adventures of the fictional English archaeologist Lara Croft. The first six games in the series were developed by Core Design, whilst Crystal Dynamics developed the latest four; their fifth game is currently in production. Two movies—Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life—have been produced, starring American actress Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft, the first of which is still the highest-grossing film adaptation of a video game ever released in US, and third worldwide.

Since the release of the original Tomb Raider in 1996, notable for its female protagonist, the series developed into a lucrative franchise of related media, and Lara went on to become a major icon of the virtual gaming industry. In 2006, Lara Croft was inducted into the Walk of Game and the Guinness Book of World Records has recognised her as the "Most Successful Human Virtual Game Heroine."

Loosely based on Greek mythology, the game will be set in Ancient Greece with vengeance as its central motif. The player will control the protagonist Kratos, the former servant of the God of War, Ares. Kratos attempts to sever ties with Ares—who tricked Kratos into killing his wife and child—by defeating the three Furies.

The gameplay of God of War: Ascension will be similar to that of its predecessors. The game will focus on combo-based combat, achieved through the player's main weapon—the Blades of Chaos—and secondary weapons acquired later. The game will feature revamped quick time events that require the player to complete various game controller actions in a timed sequence to defeat stronger enemies and bosses.

The game will also feature puzzles and platforming elements. In addition to its similar gameplay, the game will be the first installment to feature multiplayer and be developed with stereoscopic 3D. The game will also feature a revamped combat and weapon system, new gameplay mechanics, and downloadable content. A multiplayer beta was held from December 12, 2012 to January 21, 2013.
