Daily News - 4th April 2011 (For Reals!)


So I realised that the date I've been putting on the news is wrong... which is just great, I'm sure you'll agree. However, in the interest of making this thing look semi-professional, I'm afraid I'm gonna have to make it the actual date the news is from. Sorry everyone, I've let you down...

Anyway! News!

Sony's NGP Likely To Be Delayed Due To Last Month's Earthquake

The next handheld from Sony is looking to be delayed, thanks in no small part to the devastating earthquake that rocked Japan last month. Jack Tretton, Sony Computer Entertainment America's President reiterated that Sony had only ever promised the NGP would make it's debut "at the end of the year 2011", also saying that it's likely it will launch in "just one market by the end of the year.".

For all you guys wanting one, something tells me it'll be worth the waitPlaystation Network Hacked? Signs Point To "Probably?"...

Mere hours after Anonymous (A large hacker community) threatened to destroy Playstation Network for suing a fellow hacker, the service suffered many unexpected failuers, prompting Sony to do heaps of "maintenance" to the service. Meanwhile, official Sony websites were either running incredibly slowly, or inaccesible all together. The service was resumed eventually but (to my knowledge atleast) Sony have yet to say outright that their services were attacked.

Earth Defence Force: Insect Armageddon Is Shaping Up Nicely

Now for something ever-so-slightly more light hearted. One of my favourite games ever is getting a sequel later this year! Earth Defence Force: Insect Armageddon (The sequel to the sublime cult classic Earth Defence Force 2017) looks to be coming along just fine with today's new batch of screens as shown on the Official Playstation Blog (when it wasn't getting hacked to buggery). Basically it's giving you more of what you want. More weapons, more bugs to nuke and more fun ways to do it. I fully expect this game to be nothing short of perfection, so naturally it will be. That's how the world works, right?.... Right?!?

SHOOT IT'S FUCKING MOUTH OFF!!!Spiderman: Edge Of Time Trailer And Screenshots Full Of Promise/Potential Disappointment

From one game that'll be so bad it's good, to one with alot of genuine promise. Spiderman: Edge Of Time is based around the Spiderman 2099 and Amazing Spiderman universes. The basic idea is that events that happen in the Amazing Spiderman sections will affect the Spiderman 2099 sections occurring in the future. The conceipt of the game sounds pretty awesome, and the trailer and screenshots posted today certainly support the awesomeness, I'm just wary. Spiderman games, you've hurt me before!

Epic, right?!?
