Just in time for E3, DICE has put up an announcement for a new Mirror's Edge game, Catalyst.  It's not a sequel, but as for what exactly it will be? We'll have to way for the EA conference at E3.  Senior Producer of Catalyst Sara Jansson had this to say:

Two years ago we revealed that we were making a new Mirror’s Edge™. Last year, we gave you a behind the sceneslook into some of the early progress we had made. And though we haven't said much else in all that time, we have been listening. Thank you for your incredible passion and your patience. I'm excited to tell you that it's paid off — by this time next week, you will have finally seen more of the game at E3.

Mirror’s Edge has always had a special place in the hearts of all of us at DICE. The first game had a lot of promise. It was unlike anything else in terms of the gameplay and style — it had a unique soul. But as much as we loved that game, we knew it could be more. So that’s what we have set out to do as we introduce Mirror’s Edge to a new generation.

The team has spent a lot of time re-evaluating every aspect of the game and making it a new experience. This is not a sequel, this is not Mirror's Edge 2. We have landed on a vision that honors the first game — pushing the boundaries of first person movement and diving deeper into the story behind our heroine Faith — but also brings a lot of great new, interesting gameplay and features to the experience for our players.

So on behalf on the entire team here at DICE, we can’t wait to show you what we have been pouring our heart and soul into. We can’t wait to introduce you to Mirror’s Edge™ Catalyst.

Surely you've seen all the stuff going around about Pluto after New Horizons provided us with the clearest shot we've ever had of the dwarf planet, but did you know the CPU powering the New Horizons probe is the same CPU that once powered the ORIGINAL PLAYSTATION CONSOLE? We're talking about the PS1 here, the console that brought you this:



this:


and this:


NASA launched New Horizons in 2006, so they could have used at least a PS2 equivalent CPU, but I guess NASA just likes to keep it classic.

This video is supposedly From Software's rumored "Project Beast," and it looks it could be a sequel to Demon's Souls. No such game has been announced, but E3 is nearly upon us.
