God Of War III, one of the most anticipated games of recent times, has stormed onto the PS3 and topped the sales charts, the PSN is notching up impressive user figures and Sony’s new motion controller, the PlayStation Move, was revealed. But perhaps the most exciting thing is that this isn’t unusual now, every month seems to hold a step in PlayStation’s evolution, whether it’s the introduction of new hardware, the arrival of triple-A games or improvements to the online network. Sony has got the bit between its teeth and is aiming to dominate in every sector of the videogames market: it more than holds its own when it comes to exclusive games, it has an online service that is completely free to use and though time will tell if Move can muscle the Wii out of the market its introduction proves Sony’s intent of making the PS3 the one and only console people have in their homes – because as the slogan goes ‘it only does everything.’

With PlayStation undergoing some rejuvenation with the Move, we thought it fitting to take a look at a franchise that is back in a big way this month, True Crime. Activision is hoping that its reboot of the classic PlayStation franchise can make a real impact on a new generation of gamers. Allowing us unrestricted access to the studio, it’s clear that the team at United Front Games really do mean business and by drawing on experience gained from making bestselling open-world and driving titles it is looking to offer something rather special when it comes to sandbox crime capers. We also have news on other franchise revamps in the form of Medal Of Honor, Ghost Recon, Street Fighter and Castlevania.

So when it comes to gaming it appears as if what’s old is new, but as long as they bring something fresh to the table we’re more than happy to welcome them back, a bit older, a bit wiser and much more refined… just like us really.

Can you afford to miss it? I think not.
