N3: Nightly News Narration - GTA Install Required, Diablo 3 Offline, & More
Grand Theft Auto V will release on September 17 for Xbox 360 and PS3. A PC and next-generation version of GTA V has yet to be confirmed by Rockstar. However, we should get a PC version at some point.
Speaking of the PC, the console version of Diablo 3 will not require an always-on connection like its big-brother PC version. Blizzard recognizes that a large number of console players don’t have Internet access so they can’t count on an Internet requirement like they can on the PC. Also, due to this, there will not be an auction house. Players will be able to do co-op with up to three players on a single screen. As a Diablo fan, this sounds like a blast!
Diablo 3 is coming to Xbox 360 and PC on September 3, 2013, with a PS4 version to follow around the launch of the console.
Moving on to the Vita, Pinball Heroes is coming to the Sony handheld and features 8 tables for only $5.99. These were originally released back in 2009 and 2010 for the PSP platform. The tables featured include: Hot Shots Golf, Fat Princess, Uncharted, WipeOut, ModNation Racers, Pain, High Velocity Bowling and MotorStorm. There are online leaderboards, versus mode, and even online tournament play. You can view the launch trailer below:
XSEED and Marvelous USA have revealed that Killer is Dead will be alive and well, at retail, on its August 27, 2013 release for $59.99. All launch copies of this Suda51 game will come with a few special surprises such as an 80-page hardcover art book, 25-track soundtrack CD, and the "Smooth Operator" downloadable content pack.
Guess what I am doing on August 27, 2013?
