The quest to infiltrate the 3D market seems to be picking up more so now since the release of Nintendo’s 3DS. Yet there doesn’t seem to be many 3D games out there on any other console or even the PC.
Okay, so developers have tried with several games on the PS3 and PC, with nVidia having provided the appropriate hardware and software to give life to PC games… But there doesn’t seem to be a constant flow of 3D games coming out.
Sony appear to be the only ones pushing their home gaming… I mean multimedia, console when it comes to games in 3D. Next inline for this treatment, Resistance 3. Or should that be Resistance 3D?
Not only are Insomniac getting in on 3D, they have plans on getting Move supported too. James Stevenson, senior community manager at Insomniac, earlier confirmed this on the Sony’s European PlayStation Blog, stating that they “were inundated with requests to support both Move and sharp shooter,” a decision they probably wouldn’t have made had Killzone 3 not been received the way it was.
It doesn’t seem like there are many Move supported games either on the PS3, so hopefully this can kick start a trend for this pricey peripheral.
Will you be buying Resistance’s third outing? Will you want to play with your Move controllers too? Or would it be too much with 3D also? Let us know below.
Okay, so the Duke has been further delayed. That’s not too much a problem right?! I mean, it’s been over 14 years so an extra month shouldn’t be too bad.
To further punish all those that have waited patiently for the title, 2K have just launched the official website.
You can find everything here, from wallpapers to Duke icons. There’s even a chance for gamers to pre-order the game!! Or chat to others who have equally waited this long.
With the importance of this title, it doesn’t surprise one if the site has news feeds appearing on the homepage, with their most recent post referring to Gearbox Software’s Randy Pitchford being the last to learn about Dukes delay to June 10th.
Either way, you can all get your hands on Duke Nukem Forever at it’s new revised release date by pre-ordering at GAME, HMV, Play and Gamestation. If they aren’t man enough for you, check out the Balls of Steel limited edition packages.

Activision has finally released Black Ops First Strike downloadable content for the PC.
There’s nothing different with the PC version. The standard five maps are included but with the added touch of visual polish. Berlin Wall, Stadium, Discovery, Kowloon and the zombie map Ascension are all there.
Last week, Steam had an offer on for those that pre-ordered, with a not to shabby 10% saving. That has now passed, but you can still get First Strike for £11.49 at Steam’s store.
Still want to know more about the five new maps?! Check out our review here.

Mixed reviews or not, gamers have voiced their opinion via their wallets.
THQ must be happier now with this piece of news. Homefront hadn’t even been released when reviews started to appear online with less then expected average scores. This resulted in a 25 percent drop in share price which must have worried shareholders.
However, all should not feel too despondent at THQ. Their FPS has sold over a million copies and they are about to break even.
Last Monday, Homefront was enjoying life at the top spot in the UK charts, before being dislodged down to third by Crysis 2 and Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars.
Brian Farrell, President of THQ, was overly pleased with strong worldwide sales and that “Homefront is clearly resonating with gamers…
But as with many games, you can’t have it bug free. Currently, there are a few glitches with multiplayer modes, though a patch should be released this week some time.
With all the love Homefront seems to be receiving, it’s good to see THQ giving something back.
Let us know what you think to the game below.
The good news is that we’ll soon be able to stop making jokes about the truly epic 14 year saga of Duke Nukem Forever’s development. But in the meantime, we’ve been given one last chance with the news that the release date has now been pushed back to June 10, 2011 internationally, and June 14 in America. At least it’s only an extra month…
“In case you haven’t heard, Duke never comes early,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “We’re committed to deliver a laugh-out-loud, politically incorrect experience that people will talk about for years to come. We thank Duke’s fans for their continued patience – I promise this won’t take another 15 years.”
Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox, took to Youtube to deliver a heartfelt message regarding the delay, which you can watch here.
And you’ve still got the choice of the standard edition, or the Duke Nukem Forever Balls of Steel Limited Edition.
Duke Nukem Forever Balls of Steel edition is available to pre-order now from Gamestop with a listed price of $99.99 for Xbox 360 and PS3, and $89.99 for PC.
