Ubisoft Reveals Assassin's Creed 2 DLC Packs to Arrive in 2010

200°
247w ago - Ubisoft has already started work on DLC for Assassin's Creed 2, with two packs set to arrive on Sony's PS3 and Microsoft's XBox 360 in 2010.

Two DLC plans have been revealed so far, the Battle of Forli (most likely deals with the town being seized by Cesare Borgia in 1499), and the Bonfire of the Vanities (supporters of the church would congregate and burn possessions that were associated with vanity).

For those of you who have finished the game, you know that a couple of main memory blocks are missing. These two DLC packages will most likely fill in those two spots.

No pricing has been announced yet, but Ubisoft has stated that each piece of DLC will be over 1 Gig, so you can expect these additions to be quite lengthy.

Rumor: Wii Price Drop to Arrive the First Week of October

259w ago - Update: The official response from NOA, as expected, is "Nintendo does not respond to rumors and speculation."

Advance retail listings forwarded to Kotaku indicate that Nintendo is planning to issue its first price drop on the Wii, with a less expensive version of the console–currently priced at $249–coming the first week of October.
