Santa Monica, a studio wholly owned by SCEA, has posted a job listing on gamasutra.com, looking for a Senior Combat Designer and a Level Designer for an open world game. Maybe a new IP for the PS4? Surely not an open world God of War? What are your thoughts?

For the first time in 5 years, Sony Corp. turned a net profit. 43b Yen/$432m/£280m to specific.
While this is nowhere near the heights of Sony 10 years ago, they are clearly moving in the right direction. With Kaz at the helm, Sony has released a strong contender in the mobile space: the Xperia Z. There is also the impending release of the PS4 later this year. It remains to be seen where Sony move forward in the Photography and Television industries but Sony have made a good start.
It is important to remember Sony have recently sold off significant buildings, generating $2.5 billion. If that’s taken into account, Sony would very much still be in the red. Thoughts?

So after whats felt like forever! PopCap is FINALLY releasing the sequel to their massive hit, Plants vs. Zombies in July of this year.
I for one am super pumped and hope PvZ2 will be just as addictive as the original. Thoughts?

Well what a surprise! The rumors were true! Yes, the next Call of Duty will naturally be releasing this year, named Call of Duty: Ghosts. It will bring the game in a new direction says Infinity Ward, and will sport a new graphics engine (finally) and will supposedly refresh some aspects of the game. The above video is just a teaser and doesn’t show much officially except at the end where it says that we will see more at Microsoft’s next Xbox event on May 21st. That’s where we’ll see the game actually running, mark your calendars!
A new trailer has released for Grand Theft Auto V which has made me ever more excited at this game. Each character having quite a bit of air time and showing a lot of great content from the game. Michael being a rich older guy that can’t give up his past life of crime, Franklin may get a lot of people excited because it seems as though he may be somewhat involved in Grove Street (look at all the green people are wearing in his trailer!) – reminds me a lot of CJ’s story! Lastly, there’s Trevor, man it’s gonna be hilarious to hear all the comments he makes and the things he will do in the game! Very exciting trailer, give it a look!
Watch Dogs has been on most of our lists ever since its surprise unveil at last years E3. It is still impressing us to this day with this new trailer above, enjoy! Watch Dogs is releasing on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC on November 19, 2013 in North America and November 22, 2013 in Europe.
BEYOND: Two Souls is a highly anticipated game that is set to release exclusively on the PlayStation 3 on October 8, 2013, made by Quantic Dream, the developers of Heavy Rain, this is bound to be another great game by them. Be warned though, this video may contain spoilers!
Forgot about Ratchet and Clank? Well they’re making a huge comeback! In movie form! Yes, it’s finally time that we get a good animated movie based off of a video game, and that’s Ratchet and Clank! Who could be better? I personally can’t wait to see what they do with this move and the announcement trailer is right above, pretty funny, definitely give it a listen!
While I’m filing this one as a rumor, I think by the high-quality box art and the source of the leak; this is a pretty done deal, but here goes.
Earlier today, Tesco, the biggest grocery retailer in the UK; today leaked the box art and title of what is rumored to be the next Call of Duty game.
The listing has (surprisingly) already been taken down but once something touches the internet, it can never go ‘ghost’ again (excuse the pun).
The listing suggested it will be released on current gen consoles only, what do you guys think of the news? Personally I’m a little fatigued with the series but I think I might jump back in next-gen after my break from the franchise.
It’s worth noting that the game is being developed by Infinity Ward, yet it isn’t Modern Warfare 4, however the box art seems to feature Ghost, the character that wore the same mask in Modern Warfare 2. With an official reveal expected on May 1st, we’re sure to know more soon. A gamer on YouTube by the name of “DriftOr” has released a video with information regarding the next title that he said he got from a “very reliable source”, you can see that video after the break.
