Internet tricked by fake GT5P score (Gran Turismo 5 Prologue)

50°
331w ago - Reports that Japanese games magazine Famitsu has given Gran Turismo 5: Prologue a near-perfect score have proven to be false.

News broke yesterday that Weekly Famitsu had given GT5: Prologue - which is due to be released in its native Japan tomorrow - a highly impressive score of 39/40.

However, it now seems these claims were actually a load of porky pies, with Famitsu itself having not reviewed the game at all.

The source of the score appears to be an individual who wished to fool users on the popular NeoGAF forums by making up a load of review scores and news and trying to claim that it was the contents of this week's issue of Famitsu.

As is the way with such things, however, the rest of the internet got hold of the story and ran with it before checking whether it was accurate or not. And as it transpired, it wasn't.

Of course, this doesn't mean that Polyphony's racer isn't going to be amazing - just that we'll all have to wait a little longer to find out how good it really is.

In the meantime, one of NeoGAF's forum users has posted a separate thread with the actual contents of this week's Famitsu, which you can check out here.

Eight minutes of UT III - PS3

50°
331w ago - Unreal Tournament III has finally hit PS3 in US after months of confusion over it's release, and we can confirm it's pretty bloody good.

Earlier this morning we put the PS3 and PC versions of the game side-by-side to check out the difference between them. The bottom line, though, is that it looks and plays beautifully on Sony's fire-breathing beast.

The three videos below give you a taster of the awesome variety in level design. First up is a close-quarters deathmatch map called Sanctuary, set in an oriental-style location with an outdoor courtyard.

We also give Vehicle CTF a bash in the gorgeous Suspense stage - a medium-sized arena (in UT III terms) on a giant bridge with the two bases at either ends.

Then it's onto the new Warfare mode on the absolutely enormous Avalanche level, which is so large you could get 200 players on it, let alone 16. Two huge open snowfields are connected by a central cavern.

In Warfare mode, in case you don't know, your objective is to capture a series of nodes (bases) around the battlefield before destroying the enemy's main base power core.

Go take a look! Now! Videos can be seen here.

EA: New Battlefield will "change the way you play shooters"

331w ago - Battlefield: Bad Company will change the way we play games, according to EA. GamePro speaks with Karl-Magnus Troedsson, the senior producer for Battlefield: Bad Company, due out this March.

How similar is Bad Company to a typical Battlefield title? If I'm a Battlefield veteran, what would make me want to play Bad Company?

Experienced Battlefield fans will feel very much at home with Bad Company. The core mechanics, the sandbox game play experience that's the pedigree of all Battlefield games, is present in the new online mode as well as the singleplayer campaign. Think huge environments with tons of weapons, vehicles and gadgets and then combine this with your own imagination to how to solve the problems at hand. Seasoned Battlefield players can also stay tuned for a Veteran program.

I understand DICE recently added a single-player portion to Bad Company. How does this work differently than multiplayer?

The singleplayer campaign in the Battlefield: Bad Company(tm) has a lot of common things with playing online. The difference is that the player is grouped together with a squad of three other soldiers which go on a story driven adventure within the war. The game style is otherwise very similar to multiplayer i.e. anything you find on the battlefield can be used and no objective...
