Frontier's 'The Outsider' on hold, but not canceled

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2320 days, 16 hours, 10 minutes ago
Friday, January 21, 2011 9:15:17 AM GMT
It seems The Outsider's inability to gel with a publisher has finally forced Frontier Developments to put the game on hold, according to statements made by studio head David Braben to Rock, Paper, Shotgun and Develop. "We have had to change priorities because of requirements on other unannounced projects," Braben told RPS, implying that development on The Outsider had ceased in favor of more promising ventures.

ESRB rates Magicka for PS3 and 360, Paradox still hoping for multiplatform release

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2320 days, 16 hours, 11 minutes ago
Friday, January 21, 2011 9:14:07 AM GMT
A ray of hope has been cast on the chances of lighthearted action RPG Magicka arriving on consoles. The game has been rated by the ESRB for both Xbox 360 and PS3 (the PC version should launch this month). Now, before co-op dungeon crawler fans get too excited, know that the ESRB is a fickle mistress and not always the prognosticator we believe it to be. (more)

Digital Foundry pits PS3 Mass Effect 2 against Xbox 360 original

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2321 days, 17 hours, 41 minutes ago
Thursday, January 20, 2011 7:44:31 AM GMT
Not satisfied with its analysis of the PS3 Mass Effect 2 demo -- which was apparently based on old code -- Digital Foundry has posted a lengthy comparison of the PS3 and Xbox 360 retail editions of Mass Effect 2. There's a lot of information to digest in the article, including several videos and screenshots. The upshot: Most gamers won't notice the differences between the two games, though it seems the 360 version barely edges out the PS3 one in terms of a consistent frame-rate. (more)

Marvel vs. Capcom 3's alternate costumes' comic book origins explored

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2321 days, 17 hours, 42 minutes ago
Thursday, January 20, 2011 7:43:19 AM GMT
Apparently, a little bit more thought went into the alternate costumes of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 than just "hey, this outfit would probably look cool in red and black." IGN recently explored the canonical comic book origins of a handful of Marvel fighters' extra duds, including Storm's crimson X-Treme X-Men get-up, Dormammu's Strange Tales green-and-yellow armor, and Captain America's Red Guardian costume, which, as you probably sussed out, is pretty red.

FEAR 3 co-op trailer shows a slight imbalance

We foresee one major problem with the co-op mode for F.E.A.R. 3, previewed in the video below: One of the characters looks way more fun to play than the other. Who would you like to be: the standard, cover-based first-person shooter guy? Or the telekinetic, intangible ghost-killer? (more)

Xbox's David Dennis on December NPDs, 'best month ever for Xbox 360 hardware sales'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2327 days, 15 hours, 11 minutes ago
Friday, January 14, 2011 10:14:29 AM GMT
Xbox 360 had a good year. It could've been exclusive hits like Halo Reach, which landed in the No. 3 spot on the top selling games of 2010, according to NPD. Or it could've been the Xbox 360 S console refresh which, since its unveiling at E3 last June, has remained on top of the monthly home console sales numbers for an impressive six months straight. Or maybe it was the Kinect, which shipped a whopping eight million units by the end of the year, and sold well over its five million unit goal. (more)

Microsoft 'ran out' of Xbox 360s this holiday season

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2327 days, 15 hours, 31 minutes ago
Friday, January 14, 2011 9:54:10 AM GMT
Microsoft is pretty good at the ol' spin game. America's NPD data comes out tomorrow, and Microsoft does not believe that it beat out the competition this Holiday season, even with Kinect backing it up. However, Microsoft has turned this into a positive -- suggesting it will only lose because it sold too many consoles! (more)

Runic Games' long-sought goal to port Torchlight to consoles will come to fruition when the game is released on Xbox Live Arcade as part of Microsoft's "House Party" promotion, beginning in mid-February.

In November of 2003, a much younger Ubisoft was launching two high-profile (and excellent!) titles: the Montreal-developed reboot of the Prince of Persia series, subtitled "Sands of Time," and the Montpellier-developed Beyond Good & Evil, the supposed first installment in creator Michel Ancel's planned trilogy. By now, you know how this story goes. (more)

With the announcement that Torchlight will hit Xbox Live Arcade within two months, we're sure many players are curious as to what changes have been made during the transition from Mac and PC.
