Rockstar has today confirmed that the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V will be available on PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms from September 17th, 2013.

Not only does this confirm for the first time that the game will make it to current generation consoles, but also that the original Spring date may have been a tad optimistic.  Also, the lack of mention of a PC or Wii U version also kicks those respective demographics that don’t have access to a Sony or Microsoft machine squarely in the balls too.

We’ve got more on this after the break.

Sega have released a multiplayer trailer for their forthcoming xenomorph set-piece, blast-fest Aliens: Colonial Marines.

The trailer focuses on the various tactics that can be employed in the various multiplayer game modes and can’t help but think that had I been aware of even a fraction of them, I likely would have fared much better than I did when I went hands-0n with multiplayer portion of the Gearbox Software developed title late last year.

Trailer’s after the jump folks.

Sony have today released a new in-game trailer for the PS Vita take on their Killzone franchise; Killzone: Mercenary.

It all looks mind-bogglingly pretty too, serving as timely reminder that Sony’s second-generation handheld can pump out some really decent, almost PS3-quality visuals when it wants to.

The game itself comes with a single-player campaign that includes nine missions, which according to Guerilla Games producer Poria Torkan will last for nearly an hour apiece.  Multiplayer-wise, players can expect six maps which cater up to eight players alongside three completely different multiplayer modes to pick from.

Track down the trailer after the break.

Insomanic Games‘ four-player co-op shooter Fuse (formerly known as Overstrike) has been pushed back from a March release to sometime in between the beginning of April and the end of June of this year, putting it smack dab in what we call Q2, but what EA likes to call fiscal Q1.

The delay allows Insomniac to put some “extra work” into the title, which means taking things out to save as DLC later.

The business about the microtransactions in Dead Space 3 caused a tiny uproar among expectant fans, but it’s not really surprising considering that EA is the publishing power behind the title.

Basic upgrades are relatively inexpensive, costing a dollar, while more expansive and comprehensive DLC, including stronger weapons and upgrades to your resource gathering bots, will cost you a fiver.
