The adventure awaits and is apparent in this brand new 30 second spot for Sorcery. This PS3 Move game has been in development since 2010, and will finally be able to find its way into homes this month! It has been retooled and improved, and some believe that it will be better than the Kinect. With spells, potions, and countless items at player’s disposal, this may be the PS Move game that can reignite the accessory.

Although Sleeping Dogs has been announced for quite some time, Square Enix would like to invite audiences to view this incredible action packed and violent live-action announcement trailer. If the game can deliver as much intense action and brutality as this live-action trailer than there is no doubt that this game will have a huge fan base upon its release. This could almost be considered a four-minute short film. It’s pretty impressive and the production value is great. Sleeping Dogs was also able to impress intendees at PAX East 2012

The announcement trailer for Hitman: Absoution’s sniper challenge was issued last week. And now we are graced with an official launch trailer for the GameStop exclusive when you pre-order Hitman: Absolution.
