First Look at 2 Days 2 Vegas!

50°
344w ago - Looking for something that might provide a more emotional and story driven experience than Grand Theft Auto? Perhaps a game that makes you feel like the choices you make effect the outcome of the storyline? Then 2 Days 2 Vegas should be at the top spot on your list.

If you are looking for a general synopsis on the game then check out our preview here. However for further details we contacted the developers at Steel Monkey, and got an inside scoop on what gamers can expect from the title now and when it releases later this year.

First off, let us just get this out of the way. 2 Days 2 Vegas will appear on the PC and Xbox 360 this Christmas, and then be followed by the PlayStation 3 release soon after in 2009. The reason for moving the PS3 development back is simple.

"Resources," said Tim Dvoskin, managing director at SteelMonkey. "We are too small to tackle everything at once."

However our thoughts are perhaps with more time, the developers will use the PS3 to their advantage, utilizing the Blu-ray format to include more content in the game. It seemed to us that when we spoke with Edwin Loo, the games producer, at GDC 2007, Steel Monkey was excited about the extra storage Blu-ray provided and that they would actually use it.

Now let's talk about the new screenshots....

Rumor: PS3 set to receive yet another price drop - $299

350°
344w ago - According to a few posters at SlickDeals, a Web site which specializes in reporting the latest prices of various electronics products, the PS3 is set to receive yet another price cut and will go down to as low as $299 on January 28th.

To quote: Several posters at SlickDeals.net are reporting that the PS3 may have yet another price drop towards the end of the month. Many are rumoring that a $299 PS3 will be announced on January 28.

SlickDeals.net is a website dedicated to providing consumers with the latest prices in electronics, breaking the news of both of the previous PS3 price drops and the 360 price drop a few weeks early, along with the CheapAssGamer forums.

Though it does seem early for this to occur, Sony did recently announce that the price of manufacturing of the PS3 did drop from $800 per unit at the launch to $400 currently. This is mainly due to the success of Blu Ray, especially with Warner Bros. going Blu Ray exclusive earlier this month.

Now there are also rumors that Paramount found a loophole in their HD DVD exclusivity contract and will be going Blu Ray as well - leaving Universal and Dreamworks as the only remaining HD DVD studios.

FiringSquad has checked in with THQ's PR contact for the game who told us today that the PS3 version had not been cancelled but has been delayed.

According to our contact Kaos Studios is working to finish the PC and Xbox 360 versions of the game for release in February. The PS3 version is still scheduled for release later in 2008.
 

KillZone 2 being rushed is pure speculation

200°
344w ago - During a 1UP podcast, it was mentioned that Killzone 2 will come out in 2008 regardless of the quality. However, a community forum leader for Killzone 2 has come out to say they have consistently refused to advance a release date so any discussion of a date is in the realms of pure speculation.

To quote: This silence leaves much doubt and speculation in the minds of many. Shane Bettenhausen of 1UP took it upon himself to unleash one hell of a rumor on the latest episode of the 1UP Yours Podcast. He mentions that he heard, "Killzone 2 will come out in 2008 no matter what the quality". Which implies that the game will be forced into our hands whether it's ready or not.

Killzone.com community forum leader, Guerrilla-E0N had something to say about that.

"Speculation on a rumor based on gossip? We have consistently refused to advance a release date, so any discussion of a date is in the realms of pure speculation, don't you think?"
