LittleBigPlanet Karting hits PS3 with Target Exclusive DLC

If you're a real lover of Target superstore, you will want to head out either to a physical location or to the web - Target's website, that is - to get this exclusive: a lovely Red Target racing suit and race car for in-game action.

Is Dragonborn the Shivering Isles DLC Skyrim fans crave?

Is Dragonborn the Shivering Isles DLC Skyrim fans crave?

For many, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion served as an introduction to DLC. Bethesda had its misses (horse armor anyone?) but it also some hits, one of which being the beyond excellent Shivering Isles expansion. Shivering Isles wowed Oblivion players when it released back in 2007, and ever since Skyrim was released, players have been asking for an expansion that's on the same scale. So, is Skyrim's freshly-announced Dragonborn DLC the expansion everyone has been waiting for? There's still a lot we don't know, but what we do know suggests that it is.

PS3 might finally be on the way to China

PS3 might finally be on the way to China

In some regions of the world, players have been enjoying their PlayStation 3s for six years now. That isn't the case for China, which banned game consoles back in 2000. That means no Wii, no Xbox 360, and no PS3 for Chinese gamers, but that might all be changing soon - at least as far as the PS3 is concerned. According to Techinasia, the PS3 was certified in China earlier this year, which might mean that it won't be long before the PS3 is officially available in the country.

Grand Theft Auto V pre-order goodies leak

Grand Theft Auto V pre-order goodies leak

A lot of people are excited for Grand Theft Auto V, there's no doubt about that, but it seems that a couple of retailers might be a little too excited. Retailers aren't supposed to open up Grand Theft Auto V pre-orders until November 5, but today images of pre-order bonuses are popping up all over the Internet. One of these pre-order bonuses, a little photo viewer, actually gives away some of the new locations in the game, so in a roundabout sort of way, we're actually learning more about the game itself through these leaks.

Skyrim Premium Edition confirmed by Bethesda

Well this certainly is interesting: earlier today, Amazon Germany outed a Skyrim Premium Edition. The listing stated that Skyrim Premium Edition will come with a number of bonuses, but strangely, it won't include any of the DLC that has been released for Xbox 360 and PC. Bethesda then confirmed Skyrim Premium Edition to Eurogamer, revealing that the game will be launching in Europe shortly, with more details set to follow soon.

Assassin’s Creed III becomes Ubisoft’s most pre-ordered game in history

Assassin’s Creed III becomes Ubisoft’s most pre-ordered game in history

Not too long ago, it seemed that gamers were getting a little tired of the Assassin's Creed series. Complaints about Ubisoft's yearly release schedule started surfacing around the time Assassin's Creed: Revelations came out, and for a little while, we thought the franchise was on the decline. Today, Ubisoft showed us that nothing could be further from the truth, announcing that Assassin's Creed III is its most pre-ordered game ever.

Assassin’s Creed III to “bring some finality to Desmond’s story”

Assassin’s Creed III to “bring some finality to Desmond’s story”

If you follow Assassin's Creed news, you probably know that it might not be long before we say goodbye to Desmond, one of the main characters in the story, for good. In a new interview with OXM, lead designer Steve Masters seems to suggest that Assassin's Creed III may be the last game to feature Desmond. At the very least, it sounds like Assassin's Creed III will be the beginning of the end for our lovable modern-day assassin.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 18, 2012

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 18, 2012

Welcome to Thursday evening, everyone. This afternoon we had a bunch of quarterly reports hit, and some were better than others. Google posted its quarterly report a little prematurely, a blunder that had a hand in driving down the price of the company's stock. Later on in the day, we heard from Microsoft, which managed to do pretty good in its first quarter. Sadly, AMD posted its results for quarter 3 just a little while ago, and things aren't looking too good for the company - in fact, it says that it will have to layoff around 15% of its workforce in an attempt to save some money.
