GameStop conference call confirms 120GB PS3

50°
347w ago - The rumor has been floating around for a while now, but it would seem as if a GameStop conference call has confirmed that the 80GB PS3 SKU is no longer being produced in favor of a new 120GB SKU complete with a Dual Shock 3 controller.

To quote: A GameStop conference call was held today, which supposedly explained that the system was no longer being produced, in favor of a 120 GB or more model bundled with the Dual Shock 3 controller.

There's no Official date for when this enhanced model will be ready for purchase, or the price, for that matter, but it should be relatively soon. GDC is just a few short weeks away, so at the latest, it should turn up by then.
 

Producer Talk Tekken 6 At Taipei Game Show

50°
347w ago - If there is one 3D fighting game that I must buy, it's always the Tekken series, Tekken in chinese sounds much cooler than Virtua Fighter and I thought the character design was awesome as well. Katsuhiro Harada, series producer including latest entry, Tekken 6, was at Taipei Game Show 2008 last weekend on SCET's (SCE Taiwan) invitation and talk to visitors about life and the game itself.

While there is no further news on Tekken 6, it's good to know that the developers are quite deep into porting the arcade version to the PS3 and the online mechanisms being worked on. Harada also shared the story behind developing the series, saying Sega's Virtua Fighter is the main inspiration for the game back in 1994.

On to the content of the subsequent games in the series, Harada says that most of them are feedbacks from players. And yes, Roger Jr., the kingaroo and panda are all requests by fans of the series. All the characters from the previous games in the series will be making their PS3 debut, this is because every characters appears to have their very own fans and the developers are terrified that a girl threatened to kill herself after news of her favorite character being dropped.

As for the online modes, the experience of Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection Online has given them enough knowledge...
 

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Preview

50°
347w ago - The first Rainbow Six Vegas was a breath of fresh air when it dropped in late 2006. In an attempt to streamline a series that was once focused on planning phases and punishing diffuculty, Ubisoft designed Rainbow Six less like a real world tactical op and more like an episode of 24. The end result was a great mix of action and strategy, and offered up a killer multiplayer experience.

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 doesn't appear to be reinventing the series as much as the first game did. In fact, to the untrained eye you'd probably think you were looking at the same game. But beneath the graphics and gameplay, whose tweaks are minor but appreciated, some very nifty additions have been made that are sure to enthuse just about any member of the Rainbow team.

First of all, experience. A couple years ago the concept of "gaining experience" in an FPS just meant that you knew where the Redeemer spawned in Deck 16 in Unreal Tournament. These days developers have introduced more incentive to play and replay their games. The original Rainbow Six Vegas unlocked new weapons and character options as you played more of the multiplayer, while Call of Duty 4 unlocked weapons, camo patterns and attachments while online. Rainbow Six Vegas 2 remains on the experience bandwagon, but throws a bit of a curveball, allowing you to gain...
 

Feature: Resistance 2 vs Killzone 2

50°
347w ago - It's a Dual Shock-shooter showdown! We load you up on all the details on two of the PlayStation 3's biggest titles of 2008.

Master Chief may have pwned 2007, but he's about to get trounced by two heavyweights. Resistance 2 and Killzone 2 are slated for a fall release, priming 2008 to be the banner year for shooters. Even better, PlayStation 3 should see a big boost due to the exclusivity of these games to the console.

Both are gunning for the spotlight, but it will be up to gamers to decide which comes out in the lead. We dissect both shooters, giving you a heads-up as to what you can expect from two of this year's most anticipated titles.

Weapons

Resistance 2

A shooter isn't a shooter if it doesn't have cool weapons. Resistance had them in spades, which isn't surprising given Insomniac's track record of packing tons of awesome weapons in its Ratchet and Clank games. The company has remained quiet on what firearms will populate the sequel's arsenal, but we're fairly certain everything from the original will make a return.

Standards like the M5A2 Carbine and L23 Fareye sniper rifle fulfill the need for some real firepower; however, it's the experimental weaponry that gets our interest piqued. Hedgehog grenades better be returning in Resistance 2 so we...
