Michael, Trevor and Franklin: 3 faces of GTA 5

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Coming to PS3 this Summer
It may be a few years late, and a completely different game to that we were expecting, but Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is finally making it to the PlayStation 3. The PS3 release will coincide with the PC re-release. The MMO has something of an infamous past, in which the game was released to complete critical failure and then basically remade from the ground up. A slightly more solid release window is a hint that things are well on their way to improving within the world of Eorzea.

Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut worse than 360 Original
While the PS3 Director’s Cut for Deadly Premonition is once again splitting critics, one thing is certain: the improvements hardly make a double-dip worth it. In fact, improvements may be a slight over-exaggeration, as users have found that certain parts of the game are worse than in the original 360 release. Although players are happy with improvements to the controls – especially on foot – it would seem the graphical improvements are largely neither here nor there, and that the…
Naruto Shippuden UNS 3: 1.2 million copies sold worldwide
Following the recent release of Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 in Japan , Namco Bandai took the opportunity to announce that their game has shipped over 1.2 million copies worldwide. This is the fastest selling game in the franchise so far. It's a huge success for CyberConnect2, who are currently working on Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle for PS3 and Solatorobo 2 on 3DS.
Deadly Premonition – Director’s Cut Launch Trailer
Deadly Premonition was something of a mixed bag when it was first released on Xbox 360 in 2010. While much of what made it a game - the graphics and controls specifically - suffered from a severe ability to underwhelm, the story and depth of the characters in the world were pretty much unlike anything else available. Like Twin Peaks with a touch of The X-Files, it managed to make you invest in the people of Greenvale regardless of the roughness of the gameplay itself. This led to incredibly mixed reviews, ranging from 9s and 10s right down to 1s and 2s. Thankfully, the director's cut - released this week on PS3 - seems to have gone a long way towards fixing many of the problems, and may balance out critical reception.
