Eight most talked about stories (15-19 March)

 A lot of stuff happens in the world of games every week - some of which you might have missed. Here's a quick round-up of what we considered to be the most talked about news stories of the past five days....

Formula One Racing gets exciting

Well, exciting in the sense that it's being made by driving experts Codemasters this year, after over a decade in Sony's hands. GR's Formula One devotee Justin Towell has played it more than anyone else. 

Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime spouts some madness (and we translate it)


Nintendo spokesperson Reggie Fils-Aime has a history of 'interesting' PR quotes, and Sony and Microsoft's recent encroachment into Wii's motion control territory has prompted a few more cryptic puzzlers from him. Allow us to translate into easier words.

Red Dead Redemption comes out of the desert

It might have been delayed by three weeks (18 May US/21 May UK) but Red Dead Redemption is still one of the more exciting prospects this Spring. This latest video proves it'll be worth the wait.

Gran Turismo delayed, no this isn't Groundhog Day

A new unofficial release date puts GT5 on course for October (we were expecting it to be out by now). Frustratingly, we know exactly WHY it's been delayed, but are sworn to all sorts of secrecy.

Finally, we can say, "it'll be worth the wait."

And from CVG...

Microsoft claims that lack of Blu-ray has increased 360 sales
A picture of a circuit board on some Chinese forum is supposed to be a 360 Slim
Fans (including us) get grumpy over the price of Modern Warfare 2 DLC
Augmented reality via PS Eye is Sony Move's advantage over Wii

    Have to agree with some of the comments here, although I like the fact that there is more features to read everyday, this feature has been getting shorter every week

    no offence, but this feature is becoming lazy. Half the articles are from porevious features that you have done and others are from an outside source. c'mom GR I used to really like this feature, try and show a little bit of creativity and dedication to this please.

    Actually, I like the new changes GR is going through, one of the best things (among all the great things) that GR offers are its features, and although I noticed recently you guys have (in a good way) flooded us with shorter articles, they are really good (methinks again) andmake my internet reading really enjoyable, keep it up guys!!! kudos for listening to the community and for being the best at what you do. BTW, that GT5 note got me very, very intrigued...can't wait for the next big revelation...

    @Cyberninja: I've been coming to this site every day for years. When I see a change I don't like, I'm going to speak up. GR's always been great to its community, so maybe they're interested in what their readers think. I'm not trying to be hostile, just saying what I think. But I can't leave the site. TalkRadar's here.

    you guys will get what you get and be happy with it or you can leave the site i dont care either way.

    @lolwizards: I agree. I said this on the news roundup last week. There's a crapton of features lately, and that's nice but the quality thereof has decreased. A second wag of my finger to you, GR

    @lolwizards Don't be a tool.

    Come on guys, 4 stories? I'm a longtime fan, but seriously, your features have been slipping in terms of quality.
