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....
Apple announces iPad; you need a bigger pocket
How to sum up the week of the iPad? What about a load of links?
Xbox 360 exclusivity period for GTA IV DLC expires
Less than a week ago Rockstar promised that it would be good to the PS3 this year. In a Q and A on their website the publisher recognised the "frustration" felt by PS3 owners that they hadn't been able to play any of the GTA IV DLC yet.
In a short interview with CVG, a Microsoft representative has seen fit to heap praise on the game she is responsible for promoting. As you would.
Alan Wake, apparently, will "blur the lines between games and TV, and play on the strengths of both to create something truly compelling," Laura Disney, product marketing manager for the game told our sister news site.
We think she's alluding to the episodic nature of the game, which will play out like a multi-part TV show. Although in fairness, her quote probably makes a better soundbite.
3D sports games - new gimmick for EA Sports to trademark
In another interview with CVG, Peter Moore, head of EA Sports said he was excited about the potential offered by 3D gaming and sees sports being its primary driver.
This makes 2011's EA Sports catalogue easy to predict - just stick the words 3D after all their franchises: FIFA 2012 3D, Madden NFL 2012 3D etc.
One thing to file away in the 'statement that someone said that may come back to haunt them' folder is Moore's belief that the best 3D games will be designed from the ground up to support a 3D platform, rather than just 3Difying existing titles. Let's see if stays true to his word.
Resident Evil creator must like Halo
The last of four Sega exclusive games from supercool developer Platinum Games (Bayonetta, Mad World) is called Vanquish and is being presided over by Shinji Mikami creator of the Resident Evil games. The only information available on the game is contained within the below video, which doesn't even mention what consoles it will be released for. All we can think of is Halo and P.N.03.
