EDF 2025 Trailer Has A Lot Of Screaming

EDF 4/EDF 2025 has gotten itself an English language trailer. It's a bit basic, involving lots of people getting messily eaten and trampled by hilariously awful, gigantic creepy-crawlies, whilst screaming. A lot.

However, also shows off the Wing Diver suit, which will carry you out from underfoot, and let you take the fight to the alien scum from the skies.

Dead Space 3 Will Have 11 Pieces Of Launch Day DLC

Oh Dead Space 3. First you scared us by introducing a frat-heavy extra character; then you terrified us by telling us there'd be co-op because we were too scared to play it by ourselves; then we found out the game would be riddled with microtransactions; then we learned that the PC port would be no frills; and then you told us that we'd have to pay for the full ending. Now comes the news that you'll arrive with 11 pieces of day one DLC.

February 20th Set For A Big Reveal

There have been whispers around the internet for some time that Sony were planning a Spring presentation similar to Apple’s conferences, but now it appears we will indeed be getting one… and very soon at that. In the early hours of the morning, the Playstation YouTube channel posted a new video titled "See The Future" that, while featuring the recognisable controller button symbols, doesn’t tell us much other than a date – February 20th 2013. A link in the video takes viewers to the Playstation website where they can sign up for a reminder to view the meeting, which will be starting at 6pm EST (which translates to 11pm GMT.)

Will we finally be seeing the Playstation 4/Orbis? Will we get some exciting PS Vita news? Will it be Kaz Harai attempting to outdo Iwata’s record of saying “please wait” within an hour? We’ll be sure to be on base for the meeting, and will keep you posted of any news as it develops.
