Patapenny for Patapon

My most anticipated game of 2008 is coming soon to your PSP and SCEA have decided to give the Patapon buying nation a treat - by cutting the price of the game to $19.99 (About £10). If you're serious about buying this game, the US has suddenly become the first port of call!

ICO 3 screenshot appears

The rumours of Fumito Ueda of Team ICO being in the GDC in February have been around for a while but nothing prepared anyone for the sudden appearance of what looks to be a screenshot from the team's latest project. The screenshot came to light when a job advert coming from the team appeared with the picture. It was the original place for the previous job advert. At the moment, it seems to show a chain, going into a hole, which might be hiding someone or something deep within.

Hopefully it will make sense next month. The Games Developer Conference starts from 18th February and finishes on the 22nd February 2008.

Last Week (14th to 20th January)

Err, before I catch up on this week's news, here's a quick look at last week.

Basically, it was all about announcing release dates for PAL gamers last week. Namely, Beautiful Katamari, LittleBigPlanet and a couple of Square-Enix games too.
