Second FFXIII Commercial Hits the Web

Posted in Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII Japanese Launch Portal, PlayStation 3, Square Enix with tags on November 28, 2009 by Jonathan Cullen

Final Fantasy XIII is close.

Very close. As in so close, you can smell it’s new game smell from this distance. The bad news is that it’s for Japan.

It hits on December 17, and already the TV commericals are already hitting the TV screens. The first one you can find here from our friends at UFFS, but the second you can find here after the jump.

In it, it shows a school class and its teacher. The teacher (we think) says he’s going to be taking the day off tomorrow, with the class asking why. The teacher says in his head (again, we think) he’s been waiting for this for three years. Obviously for the game, innit.

Anyways, ad is after the jump.

Posted in Codemasters, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 with tags , , on November 27, 2009 by Chris Hawke

Despite communication problems meaning that the first piece of DLC for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising isn’t out on PS3 yet, Ian Webster, Codemasters’ Community Manager has confirmed that the 2nd piece of DLC is in development for consoles:

“Just to keep you in the loop with what is happening this end, we wanted to let you all know that we currently have a 2nd DLC pack currently in development for the Xbox 360 & PS3.

Can’t give out too many specific details at the moment, but the pack will include amongst other things additional MP modes, as we realised that this was something the community were very much asking for in any new DLC.

As soon as I can release the full content of the upcoming DLC, I will be sure to let you know.”

Good news, then. You can read the full post here.

New Ubisoft Game Soon To Be Announced

Posted in Ubisoft on November 26, 2009 by Chris Hawke

The Official Playstation Magazine’s Twitter is the gift that keeps on giving. Taking a break from revealing¬†male nudity in Heavy Rain, they’ve left this tweet;

“Ooh interesting news from Ubi about a soon-to-be announced game that a) isn’t too far off and b) we definitely want to play.”

Isn’t far off? Definitely want to play? If we’re excluding the recently leaked Far Cry 3, then Driver 5 or a new Prince Of Persia are our best bets.
