We're not sure if they meant to do it, but PLAY magazine UK has inadvertently announced a game we thought was a good four years away, with news that next month it has an exclusive on the SIXTH installment of the best-selling crime-sim. We've printed a picture of it below just so you can see we aren't making it
Activision and Red Octane rolled out an update for the Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero II this weekend, and already a mass of unfortunate downloaders are reporting 'bricked' Xbox 360s caused by the update.
The patch was released to address a whammy bar response issue, but if the mass of internet postings are to be believed many people are experiencing game freezes or even the infamous 'red circle of death' leaving them with a botched 360.
Of course nobody has provided anything in the way of
Just when we were getting used to having a new release every week, Microsoft has gone and prepped two titles for release on Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday.
3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures and Gyruss are the two downloadable games arriving this week, for 800 and 400 Microsoft points respectively.
Of course it's no surprise that Microsoft is attempting to get more games onto the download service; casual games boss Bryan Trussel told us last month that the company was trying to "trying to bump up
The secrets are out, the details laid bare, but what do we think about Grand Theft Auto IV's surprising next-gen direction? As we speak, armies of webheads are bashing their keyboards into submission, dissatisfaction writ large in their endlessly knee-jerk forum posts - There's no planes! It's smaller than San Andreas! The lead role isn't an American!
Well, we've banged our heads together in the name of research, and discussed the burning topics that are likely to cause the poor fingers of
Through the power of rock (and Xbox Live) there are now nine songs from Guitar Hero I available to download for Guitar Hero II on 360. These songs will be the first of a series of monthly song pack updates that will last until rock and roll is dead.
The songs will be available in packs of three for 500 Microsoft points each. To go with the new songs, Live users will be able to download exclusive theme packs and gamer pics for 150 and 100 Microsoft points respectively. The theme packs may not
Grand Theft Auto IV's most intimate details have been exposed today, revealing specific features of what will undoubtedly be the most awe-inspiring game of the year - perhaps the decade. But we won't bore you with prose, instead we've blasted out a list of the boiled-down factoids
Epic Games' Tim Sweeney has revealed the studio is skeptical about Microsoft's Games for Windows Live due to the restrictions it places on developers - and PC gamers.
Speaking in a 1UP.com podcast, Sweeney opined that the key problem with Games for Windows Live currently "is that any feature that Microsoft implements and charges for, the developer can't implement themselves."
"As a PC developer, we're used to having complete freedom and defining our feature set - what we can give gamers and
The Activision-owned publisher Red Octane revealed the third game in the Guitar Hero series is going multiplatform this autumn.
A post in the support section of the firm's website promised, "Guitar Hero III for the PlayStation 2, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii are currently scheduled for release in the United States in Fall of
After all the fuss recently about Microsoft not wanting Epic to release free Gears of War downloadable content (as EAs paid DLC, for example, would suddenly seem even more asinine by comparison), it has finally been announced that we will see the new Annex multiplayer mode added later today at 4:00 p.m. PDT, as well as a few other changes to the bloodiest game this side of Barbie Horse Adventures.
Along with the new mode, which has players fighting to control areas of the map like Halo 2 s
Like it or loath it (if you're a city official), GTA IV is coming this October and it's probably going to the biggest game of the year. The advertising campaign is up and running in New York, and not long after NY city officials cried outrage at the game's setting.
It wasn't long ago that city councilman Peter Vallone, chairman of the council's public safety committee came out with this classic quote that will go down in gaming history: "Setting Grand Theft Auto in the safest big city in
