Whoa, check out this chart on console sales

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2597 days, 7 hours, 28 minutes ago
Monday, April 19, 2010 6:02:05 PM GMT
I love charts. We get blasted with videogame sales data repeatedly, but you never get the big picture, especially with console sales data. You always get some kind of spin or complementary comparison that does little to show you overall progress. (more)

New Zealand police respond to Splinter Cell stunt involving 'gun'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2597 days, 7 hours, 45 minutes ago
Monday, April 19, 2010 5:44:31 PM GMT
A Splinter Cell: Conviction marketing stunt went a bit too far in Auckland, New Zealand. According to the New Zealand Herald, a man with bandages on his hands pointed a fake gun at the patrons of a bar, who responded by diving under tables and calling the police. The money quote comes from Senior Sergeant Ben Offner, who said, "We consider these types of stunts to be very ill-advised and have real concerns a similar one may one day end in tragedy." Er, "ill-advised" would be putting it lightly. (more)

NPD: Red Steel 2 sold 50,000 copies through April 3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2599 days, 6 hours, 24 minutes ago
Saturday, April 17, 2010 7:05:27 PM GMT
Based on NPD figures (via Kotaku), Ubisoft's sequel, Red Steel 2, managed to sell 50,000 copies in its debut month of March -- up until the end of the NPD's catalog period, April 3. Admittedly the game was released at the tail-end of the month on March 23, but we'd still classify the sales as "decent." (more)

4-year-old Gets Xbox 360 Game With Weed Inside

Saturday, April 17, 2010 7:01:35 PM GMT
When buying a used game, you can never be guaranteed of having things in the same condition when new. Sometimes the manual is missing, the disc may be scratched, and any sort of free DLC is long gone. But how often does one find something extra – and illegal? (more)

Assassin's Creed 2 enters Guinness World Records 2010

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2600 days, 17 hours, 18 minutes ago
Friday, April 16, 2010 8:11:17 AM GMT
Yes, Assassin's Creed 2 has been awarded with a Guinness World Record. You might be surprised, however, to learn that it has nothing to do with how good the game is. No, Assassin's Creed 2 has been awarded the world record for "being the most cover-featured video game." In other words, it appeared on more magazine covers between April 2009 and April 2010 than any other game. (more)

Microsoft Shutting Down Original Xbox Live

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2601 days, 17 hours, 16 minutes ago
Thursday, April 15, 2010 8:14:03 AM GMT
In early February, Microsoft announced that it will be shutting down the original Xbox Live service tomorrow on April 15, 2010. That means that games still being played over Xbox Live, such as Halo 2 and Counter-Strike, will no longer have online functionality after the shut off date. Xbox and Xbox Originals will still work in their offline modes. (more)

The Halo Movie is Still Happening, Says Microsoft

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2605 days, 15 hours, 58 minutes ago
Sunday, April 11, 2010 9:31:09 AM GMT
It's been a while since we've heard anything positive regarding the possibility of a Halo movie. The on-again-off-again status of the movie has teased Halo fans for years. However, a few years back, the project was declared completely dead. Microsoft's Frank O'Connor has provided renewed hope for those desperate to see the Master Chief on the silver screen. IGN reports that speaking at MI6 in San Francisco last week, O'Connor said that they are going to make the movie, but when the time is right. (more)

While the title has been on the radar since November, Majesco has now confirmed that Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter is headed to Xbox Live Arcade in addition to the PC. Previously relegated to the more nebulous "home console," the HD remake is officially coming to XBLA with some new features in toe. There is no release date mentioned, though the Steam version is currently listed for April 28. The game includes a new deathmatch mode along with co-op, capture the flag and survival modes.

Friday, April 09, 2010 7:44:16 AM GMT
Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski was bumped from Jimmy Fallon's Thursday lineup by pop artist Justin Bieber, but details from his new game appear to be emerging anyway. Edge has the rumored first details from Gears of War, which will reportedly be quite a bit greener than previous entries. The first two Gears of War titles are known for their brown-gray color palettes, but the third edition apparently looks to be set during the summer. That means underwater locations, and potentially jungle and oth... (more)

Warner Bros. Interactive sent along a press release announcing that the third installment of the freakishly fun F.E.A.R. franchise is heading to the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in Fall 2010. The game should turn out to be an interesting collaboration between Monolith Studios, Day 1 Studios, legendary horror writer/director John Carpenter (Halloween, Christine, The Thing), and horror comic and script writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night).

Xbox 360 USB storage is live, with list of gotchas

Joystiq broke the story that USB storage was coming to the Xbox 360; today, the update goes live. A quick download, and suddenly you're not dependent on Microsoft to sell you overpriced hard drives. Of course, the ability to use USB storage comes with a few limitations. The storage device has to be over 1GB. You can only use 16GB of the storage device, no matter how large it is. You can use up to two devices at a time, giving you 32GB of storage. In other words, if you have a bunch of small USB sticks k... (more)

The Changing Face of the Console Wars

posted by Alfonso CubiasAlfonso Cubias 2781 days, 3 hours, 52 minutes ago
Saturday, October 17, 2009 9:37:29 PM GMT
An article at Gamasutra explores the decisions by Microsoft and Sony to launch significant hardware additions — their respective, upcoming motion-control schemes — in the middle of a console cycle, rather than waiting until the next generations of their systems are ready. It's indicative of a change to the established pattern of console wars; nowadays, it's more about adding features and gadgets to improve existing products than developing entirely new ones. (more)

Get Your Psylocke On In New Marvel: Ultimate Alliance DLC - Clips - Kotaku

posted by Alfonso CubiasAlfonso Cubias 2781 days, 4 hours, 5 minutes ago
Saturday, October 17, 2009 9:24:21 PM GMT
Carnage was pretty cool, but I'm really glad Psylocke's getting a shot at Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. I think my favorite Psylocke moment is when she breaks up with Archangel because they're "too different." I mean, come on — that's lamer than the "I think we should see other people" breakup line. Especially so because they're both X-Men; being "too different" is kind of their thing. Anyway, here's a trailer:Video Games | Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 | Psylocke Character VignetteXBox 360 | Playstation 3... (more)
