Assassin's Creed is set to get its own book trilogy written by a bestselling author, which clearly makes the Xbox 360 and PS3 game as important as Halo, which also has its own range of books.
The first novel in the Assassin's Creed trilogy is due to launch in October 2007 and will be penned by New York Times bestselling author Steven Barnes. The books will aim to expand on the game by covering the back back-story of protagonist Altair and Third Crusade
God of War II director Cory Barlog has dropped a heavy hint that the PS3 SixAxis will be given a rumble feature in the future.
It's amazing what can come from a launch party of a videogame. 1up reports that Barlog let slip a few interesting things about the future of the God of War series (which will obviously hit PS3 at some point).
Here's the clip: "Did Barlog just confirm that God of War 3 will be in 1080p with SixAxis and VIBRATION functions on PS3? He sure did! Whoa! Well, technically he
If you're a fan of splashing cars sideways through thick mud then you should be keeping an eye on this beast.
These five new screens (hit the Images tab above for the rest), which Sega stresses are in-game, demonstrate some impressive detail in both the cars and the surrounding vegetation, and a whole lot of mud
Juárez Mayor Héctor Murguía has condemned Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 which is set in El Paso and Juárez, reports the El Paso Times.
Ubisoft's tactical shooter launched last Thursday for Xbox 360, which features fictional battles between the US Ghosts and Mexican rebels. Keyword there being "fictional." But the Mayor of Juárez (one of the locations featured in the game) isn't

It's only been a few days since we had our first Skate experience. But we're still thinking about it, still hearing the clack-clack-clack of wheels on concrete, even as we sit here attempting to forge words into meaningful sentences. Activision's venerable Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series certainly pushed its own boundaries with the enjoyable Project 8, but Skate is something altogether different.
In fact, Tony's button mashing franchise isn't even on the same map as Electronic Art's fresh new
Discussion and reaction to Sony's recently-announced PlayStation Home has been rampant at the Games Developers Conference, with most excited and dying to dive into Sony's virtual world, while others are skeptical whether the service goes deep enough (mostly Nintendo and Microsoft employees).
We roamed the GDC halls to get a quick reaction to the PS3 Second Life-alike, and here's what our victims had to say...

Following Sony's much-discussed PlayStation Home announcement earlier this week, Microsoft's Chris Satchell has talked down the service saying that it's "not a very game-centric approach."
The general manager of Microsoft's Game Developer Group told CVG this afternoon: "I think they've definitely taken some concepts that we originated like Achievements, but I think they're pushing in a different direction and we've sort of fundamentally got two different approaches going on here."
Phil Harrison has been speaking at GDC about the lack of third-party exclusive titles for PS3, saying that they will be easier to secure once PS3's install base grows.
Speaking to various bloggers at the conference, Harrison said, "I don't think PS3 has the install base to support Rockstar's investment in GTA IV on its own." And if you think about it he's pretty much right on the
Following Sony's announcement of its new online community software, PS Home, Nintendo has gone on the offensive, deeming the service "an example of Sony's 'Mii-too' approach."
When asked of the company's thoughts on Sony's online plans, Nintendo said: "This is an example of Sony's "Mii-too" approach. But as Mr. Miyamoto states, Nintendo years ago considered and rejected the type of approach Sony is now taking," presumably referring to creating a virtual online world.
