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

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2739 days, 56 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)

We haven't heard an official word yet as to what owners of Street Fighter IV will receive when they buy Super Street Fighter IV (believe me, I've asked), but one of the folks at EventHubs apparently has at least one of the rewards you'll get: Two extra colors for your characters. (more)

Final Fantasy XIII PS3 sells twice as many as 360 version

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2740 days, 23 hours, 25 minutes ago
Saturday, April 17, 2010 7:16:09 PM GMT
One of the most bitter battles of the current console war, the multiplatform success of Final Fantasy XIII, has ended with a clear winner. The PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIII has sold almost twice as many copies as the 360 version according to the latest NPD numbers. That's pretty conclusive. Final Fantasy XIII, heralded as the very first Final Fantasy game to enjoy a simultaneous launch on home consoles, sold 828,000 PS3 copies compared to 493,000 on the Xbox 360. As you can see, the numbers weren't ... (more)

Study says violent gaming doesn't have a major impact on sleep -- Joystiq

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2740 days, 23 hours, 33 minutes ago
Saturday, April 17, 2010 7:07:33 PM GMT
A team of Australian researchers recently conducted a study to determine what effect -- if any -- late-night violent gaming sessions have on a young person's sleep cycle. Two groups of teenage boys were either made to play 50 minutes of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare or watch March of the Penguins while lying in bed. The results showed that the group who played Modern Warfare took only a few minutes longer to fall asleep than those watching the movie, causing the researchers to think presleep gaming's ne...

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

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2740 days, 23 hours, 35 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)

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

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)

Crackdown 2 is going to be big. If you have any doubt that the superhero fantasy conduit will be a meaty prospect, get a load of this -- Ruffian has promised that the sequel will feature "thousands" of enemies on the screen at any given time. That's quite a lot! "During the day you've got to battle against The Cell, which is the remnants of the gangs and civilians who have joined together against The Agency," explains executive producer Peter Connelly. "So you've got quite a formidable set of adversaries... (more)

PS3 fanboys, start your engines! Crytek has admitted that, of the two console versions of Crysis 2, the PlayStation 3 is getting a better deal. The graphics-intensive Crysis sequel is squeezing a bit more power from Sony's machine, and while it's doubtful that the naked eye will recognize much of a difference, you can be sure that PS3 fans are rejoicing in the streets over this victory.

For those savvy to the ways of tech, connecting a game console to the internet is simple, but for others, it can be tricky (or a total nightmare).

If you just want to get internet via an ethernet cable, then your setup is going to be pretty painless. Both the PS3 and 360 have ethernet ports, but the Wii does not.

Jerry Bruckheimer Talks Prince of Persia, Why Game Movies Suck

Thursday, April 15, 2010 8:26:41 AM GMT
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time hits theaters next month, and it carries with it the hopes of gamers that it'll finally be the great (or at least kind of OK) videogame film adaptation we've been waiting for. And speaking to Gamasutra, prolific producer Jerry Bruckheimer talked about the poor track record for movies based on games, and how their approach in adapting The Sands of Time didn't differ from how they make any other movie.

Sure, you saw the first part of the Dead to Rights: Retribution behind the scenes video, but have you seen the second half? Yeah, we didn't think so. But it's here, just above, and Volatile Games project director Imre Jele is back again to lay out how the game was put together over the past few years. Jele describes the development as akin to a kid in a candy shop, unable to pick just one item and instead choosing everything. While that sounds nice from a quantity perspective, we're hoping things play o... (more)

2K Games has announced that it will revive the classic X-COM franchise with a first-person shooter from the Bioshock 2 team titled simply XCOM. The original X-COM series was a tactical game telling the story of a desperate Earth defending itself from invasion. Developer 2K Marin's "reimagining," as the publisher is calling it, promises to maintain its "strategic core" despite its move to a first-person perspective. (more)
