All right, we get it. You love motion gaming. You fell so hard for your Wii that you had to run out and buy the Kinect and PlayStation Move the minute they hit stores. And now you’ve got a lot of sensors, but not much in the way of space atop your flatscreen. DreamGear understands your decidedly first world pain, and is offering up the TriMount, a shrine to gesture-based gaming that has slots for your Wii sensor bar, Kinect sensor, PlayStation Eye, and a clamp for attaching it to your set. The $30 setup ships August 15th, and is available now for pre-order. Until then, you’re going to have to manage the old fashioned way: making a younger sibling hold up the sensor while you play Dance Central.

TriMount turns your Wii, Kinect, and PlayStation sensors into a video game Eye of Sauron originally appeared on Engadget on Wed, 08 Jun 2011 18:59:00 EDT. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

Finally, Sega has something for those of you who love both the PlayStation Move and the f-word. Today, the publisher announced a new PS3 version of the Wii’s utterly vulgar House of the Dead: Overkill, which adds … you know, the usual PS3 stuff: Move support and 3D.

It also adds “two brand-new scenarios,” offering even more opportunities for Agent G, Detective Washington and pretty much everyone else to scream obscenities at you as they shoot at zombies in a B-movie version of Louisiana. Maybe it can reclaim the record!

The Extended Cut will be out in North America on October effing 25, and in Europe three effing days later, just in time for Halloween! Play it nice and loud, and keep those kids away from your house.

Following up on this morning’s news that Sony Online Entertainment servers were offline across the board, SOE announced that it has lost 12,700 customer credit card numbers as the result of an attack, and roughly 24.6 million accounts may have been breached.

The company took SOE servers offline after learning of the attack last evening, and today detailed the unfortunate results: “approximately 12,700 non-US credit or debit card numbers and expiration dates (but not credit card security codes), and about 10,700 direct debit records of certain customers in Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, and Spain” were lost, apparently from “an outdated database from 2007.” Of the 12,700 total, 4,300 are alleged to be from Japan, while the remainder come from the aforementioned four European countries.

Furthermore, Sony ties today’s announcement directly to the recent attacks on PlayStation Network and Qriocity, and says SOE customer information was stolen on either April 16 or April 17. Sony has repeatedly stated that its PSN servers and SOE servers are not part of the same network, so it remains unclear just how these two attacks are tied together. Head past the break for the full statement from Sony.

Update, 9:03PM EST: SOE has provided us with the following statement, in which it confirms that its user data was stolen as part of the original intrusion — not a second attack. “While the two systems are distinct and operated separately, given that they are both under the SONY umbrella, there is some degree of architecture that overlaps. The intrusions were similar in nature. This is NOT a second attack; new information has been discovered as part of our ongoing investigation of the external intrusion in April.”

When the marketing team at Atlus sat down to evaluate Catherine, the company’s creepy concoction of nightmarish puzzle realms and adult relationships, it established what needed to be done in order to make the game stand out amongst the year’s other offerings: absolutely nothing. But if you’re Atlus, lasciviousness is no excuse to omit lavish special editions!

The “Love is Over Deluxe Edition” of Catherine is delivered in a “Stray Sheep” pizza box, fresh from the haunt frequented by in-game boy toy Vincent. In addition to the game, on either Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, the special package contains a Catherine pillowcase, a large shirt depicting a depleted heart gauge, and Vincent’s boxers. (Not boxers with pictures of Vincent on them — Vincent’s dotted underwear that he removed and sent to you.)

The “Love is Over Deluxe Edition” will set you back $79.99 and will be available only in limited quantities. Pre-orders for both the regular edition and special release incur further bonuses in the form of the Atlus-obligatory 11-track music CD and a 36-page Catherine art book.

If you’re already envisioning your perfect evening — lying on that pillowcase in your new shirt and boxers, listening to the soundtrack while you flip through the art book — you might need to take your relationship with Catherine down just a notch. We You have until July 26 to modify and/or hide your obsession.

The Plasma Cutter replica included with the collector’s edition of Dead Space 2 is nice and all, but it doesn’t have that overboard extravagance that some people want from their video game memorabilia. Now, these full-size replicas being released next month — there’s some real, substantial money-wastin’.

The $220 replica of the Plasma Cutter from the first Dead Space, and the $240 Dead Space 2 version, are packaged in metal briefcase-style carriers, and have rechargeable batteries to power the realistic “3-blast spot” lighting. The only thing they lack is real cutting power — which is a shame, because at these prices, you’re going to wish for real life-or-death monster battles to justify the cost.

[Thanks, Johnnynumber5!]

Gran Turismo 5 snafu
Gran Turismo 5 pileup – Click above to watch the video after the jump

Gran Turismo 5 has been billed as a hyper-realistic driving simulator. And while it’s almost impossible for Polyphony Digital’s golden egg to live up to six years of hype and hope (we called the game “an incomplete title”), there are plenty of gamers out there who feel the driving dynamics are second-to-none. But no matter how hard the hundreds of GT5 developers tried, perfection and pixels are still miles apart.

For instance, what happens when you’re driving a Nissan GT-R really fast on a banked oval track, and as you begin to ease left, an equally fast Porsche 911 taps you on the driver-side door? In real life, there is a solid chance that you’d lose control and perhaps come to a stop with your wheels pointing skyward. In GT5, you can apparently lose control, land on a Lamborghini Gallardo and still finish the race. Want proof? Hit the jump to watch the replay of one gamer’s hilarious but not-so-realistic experience. At least the Lambo slowed down once it began piggybacking an extra 4,000 pounds.
