Ubisoft, as well as sending screens and a trailer for Splinter Cell: Conviction, sent us these: 9 new shots of Assassins Creed 2. Well, you could argue some of these are old, they were in Game Informer, but they are from E3 anyways.
Check it after the jump. Game’s out on November 17th for PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360.
Ubisoft’s sent over these 9 new screens of Splinter Cell: Conviction, which are after the break. This is looking, by the day, the strong favourite to get our Best of Show award when we do the GOONL!NE Best of E3 awards on Sunday.
Catch the new trailer right here. It’s out this autumn, exclusively for the Xbox 360.
Shown on Monday at EA’s press conference, Mass Effect 2 has easily become one of the most antcipated games of 2010 already, only after a teaser, a documentary and a trailer. Catch the trailer which caught alot of people’s attention at that EA conference after the jump.
It’s exclusive to the Xbox 360. Oh, and did we mention Seth Green would be back as Joker?
The just posted this: the dates for E3 2010, which are June 15 – 17th.
Mark your calendars! E3 Expo returns to the LACC June 15-17 2010.
Taking into account the first Monday of E3 is whoever kicks off the platform holders conferences, which will almost certainly be Microsoft, it’ll take place from Monday June 14th 2010 – Thursday June 17th 2010. But E3 aint over yet, not quite.
Still more to come.
Ubisoft’s sent out the first trailer for the newly re-invented Splinter Cell: Conviction, shown this past week at E3 2009. The game was demoed at both the Microsoft and Ubisoft conferences along with a trailer, which is after the jump.
The game comes out in the Autumn, exclusively for the Xbox 360.
On a line-up for the PS3, which includes just for this year Uncharted 2, MAG, Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time as first party titles, plus 3rd party multiplatform titles like Assassins Creed 2, Modern Warfare 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, he said:
I feel we have a formidable arsenal. I would find it hard to believe gamers wouldn’t choose a PS3 with this game lineup
And on the PS3 motion controller, announced at Sony’s press conference on Tuesday:
We have more experience with spatial motion gaming. There are limitations and our experience gives us that appreciation.
Tretton, who co-hosted the Sony press conference with SCEI president Kaz Hirai, made several announcements during the show, including Gran Turismo 5, The Last Guardian, the secret Rockstar exclusive Agent and Final Fantasy XIV, which was undoubtably the announcement of E3. Demos of Uncharted 2 and MAG were also shown.
Ubisoft kindly sent out the following clip of an interview involving Assassins Creed 2, with executive producer Jade Raymond and creative producer, Patrice Desilets. It also shows a piece of the game’s development as well as some of the gameplay shown in the demo at E3.
You can find the video after the jump. Game was demoed at Sony’s E3 press conference, the first trailer was shown at the Ubisoft press conference on Monday (which is going up soon), it was confirmed for a November 17th release and it was confirmed earlier today that Jade Raymond is involved with the game as executive producer alongside Desilets, who is creative producer.
You can catch the full interview here.
In an exclusive interview with Official PlayStation Magazine UK, Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has said that The Last Guardian is coming along nicely and that we could be playing it “sooner then later”. The game, revealed on Tuesday night to be Fumito Ueda and Team ICO’s first PS3 game, is gonna be shown more now that the game is up and playable:
When I teased them about being the Olympic Team [a reference to four-year gaps between Team Ico’s games], I thought that would suggest a limit of Christmas this year. But we’ll be able to show more now because the game is running and the team is creating more and more content, and you’ll be able to play it sooner rather than later.
Yoshida, who is a suprevisor on the project, did state he was disapointed that the concept trailer for the game leaked before E3
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed. Maybe there’s a reason the person who leaked it waited until just before E3. But the reason we didn’t show early footage was because the team wanted to feel comfortable that the vision they created could be delivered. So everything we showed here was from the game engine, and they’ve got to the point where they know they can make this game and can see how it’ll be completed.
Some new screens of the game, the first not taken from both concept and debut trailers, were released earlier today. We’ll try and get them from SCEE and have them up on the site asap.
