Latest PlayStation Updates

E3 2013 is only a few days away and every company is getting their bodies ready. SEGA is among the crowd, as the publisher has just unveiled their lineup of games for the show.

Sonic Lost World is an easy confirmation. The Wii U exclusive is set to wow, with a solid reveal and great fan reaction getting the ball rolling.

Castle of Illusion will also make a return at E3 this year. The remake is overflowing with nostalgia, and many players can't wait to relive the memories, or, in the case of the young ones, experience a classic.

Total War: Rome II is shaping up to be a fantastic strategy game. SEGA is eager to show off the game at the show.

Company of Heroes 2 is set to steal the show. The game was originally planned to be published by THQ, but the company met a tragic end. The game releases at the end of this month, so SEGA is giving the title one final push.

Wrapping up the list is The Cave. The Double Fine title released back in January on PC, eShop, PSN, and Xbox Live.

That's SEGA's E3 lineup, although there is certainly room for surprises. What do you think? Sound off in the comments below.

The latest Thief game has had a troubling development cycle. However, the game finally has a solid vision and a release window. Square Enix and Eidos Montreal are bringing Thief to the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2014.

To buy a ticket to the E3 hype train, a live action trailer for the game has been produced. There is no actual gameplay shown, which may worry fans. With the game's bumpy road to release, many Thief lovers are anxious to see how the game plays on the show floor.

Despite all this, the live action trailer for Thief is very slick and enticing. I can't wait to see the game in action next week.

Atlus has confirmed via GTTV that the company has picked up the publishing rights to Zombie Studios' first-person horror game Daylight. The scares are randomly generated, so the player will never be prepared for a scare.

Here's the game's official description.

"Waking up in an abandoned hospital with only your cell phone for illumination, you explore the institution's dark criminal past as you attempt to escape. In Daylight no two experiences are the same, and it is best played alone in the dark.

Daylight introduces gamers to a procedurally generated world that replicates the horrifying nature of Daylight over and over again, but creates a different environment for each new game. Each time the player begins a new game, they experience a new world with new content and encounters; from the layout of the building and the things they seek to the events they encounter, it is never the same experience twice."

Daylight arrives in 2014 on PlayStation 4. It is a download-only title on PSN.

Activision has announced the next entry in the blockbuster Skylanders series will be coming to Sony's next generation system, as well as Microsoft's. The game was already announced for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Wii, and 3DS.

Vicarious Visions is currently handling the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U development. They are now also working on the two new versions for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Beenox is taking responsibility for the Wii version, and n-Space is developing the 3DS version.

Skylanders Swap Force will release in North America on October 13th, Australia on October 16th, and Europe on October 18th. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions have no announced release date.

Microsoft may have just dug itself into an even deeper hole; a source on NeoGAF (who has posted frequently correct rumors previously) has said that Microsoft has resorted to paying off third parties in order to gain an upper hand at E3. Both Sony and Microsoft have revealed their consoles early, and stated that their focus was going to be on games at the conference this year, so creating the illusion that the Xbox One will have more games than the PS4 would give Microsoft a definite advantage.

Keep in mind this is just a rumor. I'm currently checking the credentials of the rumor myself, and we'll be sure to keep you up to speed as more information either confirming or invalidating this statement comes to light.

One of the best games of the current generation is definitely Portal 2. The original Portal was revolutionary, and Portal 2 brought it up to the next level and added an awesome co-operative mode that kept gamers entertained for hours. Today, though, the game gets even better on the PlayStation 3, getting some love in the form of free downloadable content.

The DLC is a patch onto the previously released In Motion DLC for the PlayStation 3, which sought to incorporate PlayStation Move further into the game. The content itself is an all-new co-op campaign designed for PlayStation Move. If a player owns the game and the In Motion DLC, all he has to do is update his game and the patch will be added. For those who have neither, the game and the In Motion DLC are both currently 20% off on the PlayStation Network, or 40% off if you have a PlayStation Plus account. I totally recommend this game for those who have never played it, especially at a discount.

Are you excited to download this DLC? Or are you not a fan of PlayStation Move and/or Portal 2?

A new Tales of Xillia English story trailer was released yesterday on GameSpot's Youtube channel. The new trailer shows off some of the impressive animation and voice acting in the new game. Tales of Xillia stars two main protagonists, Jude Mathis and Milla Maxwell. In the game you play through each of the protagonists stories, though most of the time the two protagonists will be together. The game is set to be released in the US on August 6, 2013, and Europe on August 9, 2013.

The Last of Us is the highly anticipated third-person survival horror game made exclusively for the PlayStation 3 by the highly acclaimed video game developer Naughty Dog. To build some hype with the general population, Sony has released a live action television trailer. The trailer shows a man turning into Joel, most likely as a representation of the hardships the gamer has to go through in the game. The trailer has Ellie narrating, asking you to take up arms, what you would do to survive, and what you would do to protect her.

As the sun sets into the west, we come to the fourth day of our special Gamnesia E3 roundtables. Jackson isn't here tonight, and I'm incredibly lazy by nature, so we won't have any delightful puns in our titles - and you'll have to stare into the deathly maw of the infamous Mr. Caffeine. I sometimes wonder what sort of cosmic, abyssal horror lives within his very soul.

Speaking of bizarre Ubisoft press conference factoids, tonight we focus on the ubiquitous third party publishers of the gaming sphere and what impact they'll have on this year's E3 - and there is quite a bit of material to cover. Will they once again dominate like last year, even with the new console announcements?

Read on!

Yes, you read that title correctly. Sony is set to show off over 40 games next week at E3, spread across the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. Now, you may be asking yourself, "What could all of these games be?" Well, let's start our little analysis.

We know that we'll be seeing Beyond: Two Souls from Quantic Dream, Destiny from Bungie, DriveClub from Evolution Studios, The Evil Within from Tango GameWorks, Gran Turismo 6 from Polyphony Digital, inFAMOUS: Second Son from Sucker Punch Productions, Killzone: Shadow Fall and Killzone Mercenary from Guerrilla Games, The Last of Us from Naughty Dog, Tearaway from Media Molecule, and Wolfenstein: The New Order from MachineGames. If you count those up, that's only 11 of the 40+ promised games; what could the rest be?

I would imagine that we will see some third party games, such as Battlefield and/or Call of Duty; additionally, as I predicted in Gamnesia's Sony Roundtable, I think we'll see the next LittleBigPlanet, Crash Bandicoot, and All-Stars Battle Royale games. But that's just a hunch; other suggestions from the staff include Resistance and Uncharted.

What games do you think will be present? What would you like to see? Tune in to Gamnesia on Monday at 8 PM Central Time to find out!

Update: Square-Enix UK has uploaded an English version of the trailer- See it after the jump

I won't lie - I'm still shocked that Square Enix has actually decided to make a third in the Final Fantasy XIII series, even though it was initially announced quite a while back. It feels almost surreal to live in a world where a developer forges forth with a set of characters and plot lines despite their cultural status being near-universally panned.

Anyway, Square Enix has jumped the gun on their upcoming E3 show to give the world a new glimpse into the world of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. This time around, Lightning apparently switches outfits depending on the occasion and sports a nifty pair of sunglasses, and there appears to be quite a bit of melodrama going on. Unfortunately I don't speak Japanese and there are no subtitles, so basically all of it is lost on me.

Stay tuned for the inevitable English version, which will probably make the goings-on much clearer.

"A short time ago, in a galaxy far from far away, prepare for an astonishing adventure through history full of danger and full of artistry! At stake, were not just one boys fate, but the fate of the whole moon and the earth and the sun and galaxy! ...May the forceps -- I mean scissors -- be with you! -- Puppeteer E3 2013 Trailer

Puppeteer, a title in development by SCE Japan Studio, has just been given a new E3 trailer, showcasing the bombastically beautiful platformer's crazy-charming art-style, environments, and game play. Puppeteer's aesthetic is somewhat reminiscent of Junction Point's Epic Mickey, with a spectacular mix of dark and whimsical elements. The game play is in the 2.5-dimensional sidescroller genre, and looks to contain tons of high-energy platforming action.

The release date for Puppeteer is scheduled for September 10th, this fall, and, as it is a Sony-published game, it will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3. Click past the jump to see Puppeteer's awesome new game play trailer!

The famous Japanese game publisher Capcom has revealed its E3 2013 lineup. A user on Neogaf posted a quote from Capcom's press office detailing what the company is planning to bring to the show. The list includes DuckTales: Remastered, Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, Lost Planet 3, Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, and "a big surprise."

"Come join us at this year's E3 Expo to experience all new versions of forthcoming releases DuckTales: Remastered, Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara and Lost Planet 3 as well as the debut of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies. And what's more, we have a big surprise to share with you. To find out what it is you'll have to head to booth # 2101 in the South Hall of the LA Convention Center."

Remember, Capcom recently launched a 30th anniversary website, and on that website is a countdown. So it appears there's a good chance that when that countdown hits zero in four days and six hours, Capcom will draw back the curtain on our "big surprise" for E3 2013. Tune into Gamnesia for coverage of the event!

Bethesda has released The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition today. It features the main game, along with the three released DLC expansions (Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn), and if you haven't played the game yet, this is the time. Especially when you want to play it on PC, because it sells at the healthy price of $44.99.

The game takes place two hundred years after the last one in the northernmost part of the continent of the Elder Scrolls world. Skyrim faces the return of Alduin, the World Eater, and his army of dragons. You are the Dragonborn, a legendary warrior with the soul of a dragon. Dragonborns can absorb the souls of slain dragons to grow more powerful, and you have to oppose Alduin, lest he destroy the world.

The game is still incredibly good after two years, and it's got more than 200 Game of the Year awards up its sleeve, so it's definitely worth checking out.

Today officially kicked off our E3 coverage for 2013 with Konami's Pre-E3 Show! We saw news concerning PES 2014, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (including a trailer!), as well as plenty of mobile and social game development projects.
