One of the main reasons Gran Turismo 5 has been in development for so, so long is because Polyphony Digital has packed it to the gills with content, and that includes the race track creator demonstrated after the break.

In the five years since the Bleach: Heat the Soul franchise began, Sony has managed to create seven games, all exclusively for the PSP. Considering Bleach is a relatively popular anime series in America, we're dumbfounded by Sony's continued refusal to bring a single one of these games over to Amer...

Japan Studios has had little impact on the PlayStation software library this generation. The platform's greatest hits so far have, instead, come from America and Europe. Titles like Uncharted, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet, Ratchet & Clank, Resistance, God of War, and WipEout all come from various...

You might think that something called dress is all about frills, plunging necklines and eating disorders, but that's really only half the story. There's more to the modestly named paid service from Japan, including some rather odd yet somehow relevant mini-game tie-ins (you know, stuff that actual ...

It looks like that Yakuza 3 bundle isn't the only SKU out on the market with an extra dash of special detail. A bundle for Capcom's Resident Evil 5 will also feature a unique 80GB PS3 adorned with a Tri-Cell logo. It's perhaps not as stylish as the Yakuza 3 one, but at least it comes with a second ...

Why can't we have more ads like this? It's so simple, yet so fun. It's sort of like being LocoRoco the game itself, in a sense. We can't help but smile and feel happy after watching this. It's so silly. Oh, and in case you were just wondering, LocoRoco 2 hit Japan today. That's news to everyone but ...
