256w ago - Microsoft has urged gamers to delete the leaked Midnight Club: LA DLC that appeared on the XBox Live Marketplace last night.
Apparently, if you leave it on your system then you run the risk of incurring unspecified problems.
To quote: If you downloaded the Midnight Club: LA add-on content that appeared on the Xbox Live Marketplace last night, Microsoft urges you to delete it as soon as possible, lest you risk unspecified "problems."
"The Marketplace team has mentioned to me that a batch of Midnight Club: LA content went up accidentally on Xbox LIVE Marketplace this morning. It has since been removed, but you may have had the chance to download it while it was up there," writes Xbox EMEA community manager Graeme Boyd on his Official blog.
"If you did and if it's sitting on your hard drive you should delete it -- reason being that it was being tested when it was mistakenly put live and therefore it may not work properly, the Achievements won't register and could cause you problems with your Midnight Club: LA game saves."
There's currently no word on when the DLC will reappear on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
280w ago - Rockstar Games has launched their new Web site and trailers for the upcoming PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 street racer Midnight Club: Los Angeles, giving gamers a brief glimpse at the fast rides, exciting races, and cop chases.
In development at Rockstar San Diego, Midnight Club: Los Angeles is slated for an October 7 launch in North America, with a European release following on October 10.
The trailers provide just a glimpse of the fast rides, exciting races and even a taste of cop chases in a hyper-realistic version of Los Angeles that only Rockstar Games can create.
Those interested can check out the Web site linked above, and the trailers HERE.
327w ago - Rockstar says that its next-gen Midnight Club, set in Los Angeles, is the company's "most ambitious project to date."
Yeah GTA IV looks great, but we can see where Rockstar is coming from: Midnight Club LA houses a very impressive, completely seamless recreation of LA-la-land, full of familiar places and potentially crawling with online racers.
We'd hate to think how the San Diego studio managed to map such a gigantic landmass (and make it look prettier than GTA IV), and our Rockstar spokesman seemed similarly taken back. "The fact that they live two hours away probably helped," he said.
