posted by adminadmin 2390 days, 6 hours, 55 minutes ago
Thursday, March 10, 2011 8:44:36 AM GMT
Epic's Cliff Bleszinski has rather candidly stated that Gears of War 3 cannot afford to suffer the notorious online issues that plagues Gears of War 2's multiplayer.

Pachter expects 360 price cut at E3, PS3 and Wii to follow suit

posted by adminadmin 2392 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes ago
Tuesday, March 08, 2011 9:50:26 AM GMT
Gaming industry analyst Michael Pachter has updated his predictions about the console price cuts he anticipates will occur this year. A Wedbush Securities update distributed this morning said, "We expect Microsoft to announce a price cut at this year's E3 Expo in June, and expect Sony and Nintendo to rapidly follow suit." Until then, Pachter expects that consoles sales will steadily decline, with the 3DS providing enough juice to bring things back into the positives in April. (more)

posted by adminadmin 2394 days, 4 hours, 50 minutes ago

The update explains, "Now, in rehearsal Aldridge was convinced that everybody got the joke. It was all in the delivery, he assured us, and he was certain it was clear that he was playfully riffing off of the recent rumors." Apparently, he was super, super incorrect in that assumption.

During the Xbox Live Indie Games panel at GDC, a who's who of XBLIG developers (James Silva, Nathan Fouts, Robert Boyd and Ian Stocker) talked about their experiences, successes and failures self-publishing on the service.
