307w ago - The following will be the actual new SKUs for the OS:

• Windows 7 Starter (limited to three apps concurrently)
• Windows 7 Home Basic (for emerging markets)

• Windows 7 Ultimate (limited availability, includes everything)

This information has been confirmed by Microsoft... who never listens to us. At least most consumers will only see Home Premium and Professional options at retail, which is more akin to the XP options of yore, and means WMC will be "baseline" for most PCs.

Update: Just to be clear, we've checked specifically with Microsoft on all six versions, and the placement of Home Basic in emerging markets.

Windows 7 Starter

• Available worldwide to OEMs on new PCs

307w ago - Eidos Interactive, creator of some of the world's leading videogame properties, today announced that its Vietnam survival horror shooter, Shellshock 2: Blood Trails™, will ship to retail in Europe on February 13th, 2009.

Press Release: Shellshock 2TM Brings Fear To The New Year

Sequel to the 2004 hit title, Shellshock: Nam '67 ™, Blood Trails pits players against a war unlike any they have seen before. Taking the first-person war game and turning it on its head, players will experience a conflict where fear takes on a whole new meaning.

At the height of the Vietnam War, a covert ops cargo plane carrying a top-secret consignment known only as 'Whiteknight' is lost over the deepest, uncharted jungles. Special Ops soldiers are immediately dispatched to the scene to retrieve the top secret shipment and one-by-one they disappear without a trace... until one month later, one of them suddenly walks out of the jungle.

Crazed and deranged, something in the jungle had ripped out his humanity, poisoning his soul. Something in the darkness had driven him mad... and followed him out.

"Shellshock 2: Blood Trails™ takes players to a Vietnam War unlike any they will have experienced before. This is a war where your enemy doesn't just want you dead... it wants to rip...
 

EA Announces Boom Blox Bash Party Exclusively for Nintendo Wii

50°
307w ago - Electronic Arts has confirmed plans for a sequel to the critically acclaimed Wii exclusive Boom Blox, which will again be created with input from movie director and producer Steven Spielberg.

Though the publisher says the original release's sales met expectations, analysts were disappointed with the title's performance, and a sequel had been in some doubt.

Rumors, however, emerged of a follow-up last November. The original game was created by EA Los Angeles, as a result of work initiated by the secretive, now-defunct Blueprint division.

Originally intended as the first of three games created with input from Steven Spielberg, the status of the other unannounced titles is unclear. The new game will be developed by EA Casual Studios and is due for release in North America and Europe in spring 2009.

The sequel is called Boom Blox Bash Party, and will focus on multiplayer features, as well as include 400 new levels. As before, the key mechanics of the game are inspired by party game favorite Jenga, as players manipulate and knock down bricks using a realistic physics engine.

The game will also feature downloadable content, including the ability to create and share levels between users. It is also implied that users will be able to play and compete in levels online.
