    Loads of other stuff at Eurogamer about this as well. TBH it sounds like they delayed more stuff than anything else. But we got some footage of mirrors edge which looks great. I personally will be getting that on 360.

    Mirrors Edge looks interesting – vid here

    But if they were to stick in the Major and few Tachikomas and I’d be a lot more interested…

    Just been playing the HAZE demo. Wont be getting it…..

    I really like the way the story is told from a first person perspective where you can still look around etc as the character is talking to someone etc but you movement is restricted. This is a much better way to tell story than cut scenes. But the gameplay its self is not that interesting.

    Looks interesting although im not sure what the game play will be like. I wonder if the effect of seeing your hands and feet really is necessary for the fps, but sure i guess we’ll see.

    Really? Looking forward to hearing more about this actually, Haze was one of the few reasons I was looking at getting a PS3. :?

    1.5gb download for Haze, Jaysus. I’m a fan of Free radical, I loved Time Splitters and respect the work they did on perfect Dark and the best FPS ever, Goldeneye, so I’m expecting great things. It was 96% down this morning so I should get a good rattle at it tonight. Its an important game for Sony and Free Radical to get right.

    GRID is pretty good. Played it a few weeks back down Codemasters when they were initial talks with us and took us all down to show us our new home.

    MotorStorm2 tracks are considerably better than the first game. I hope the lads get the performance issues sorted out. That’s a tonne of vegetation for the alpha hating PS3 to push ;)

    I’m betting they will get it sorted !

    Played the Haze demo last night. Its quite short, not the best of demos but I enjoyed it, it looks good and ticks along nicely. I think the nectar thing has been played up too much, although I suspect that it affects gameplay more when you switch sides and have it taken off you. I must give the co-op a go this weekend.

    I also played the Condemned 2 demo, not bad and very unsettling – reminded me of Silent Hill in that respect
