Rumor: 80GB PS3 dead, 120-160GB with Dual Shock 3 incoming

50°
360w ago - To quote from the rumor's source, linked above: Our inside source of all things video gaming has been right almost every time it comes out of the shadows to give us information, so I'm going to dispense with the back story. Wherever his or her information is coming from, it's usually solid. After I spoke to Sony about the possible discontinuation of the 80GB PS3 model, I lit the mole-signal.

Working late into the night on Saturday, I heard a noise behind me. For both of our safety, I didn't turn around. "You've talked to Sony," the mole said in a gravelly whisper. "Tell me what they told you."

I repeated the information we reported on Friday: Sony is sticking to a two-model approach at retail, but the company won't comment on whether or not the other model would be the 80GB system. The 40GB system seems safe. I asked the mole what information he had.

"Sony is, in fact, phasing out the 80GB PS3. Sony is going to stay with the two-SKU approach though, and the prices look to stay the same," the mole told me. I heard sirens in the background, and the mole seemed nervous. "The Spiderman 3 pack-in will disappear as well once the 80GB unit is gone. In order to maintain a similar value proposition to the 80GB/Spiderman 3 bundle, I expect to see a storage increase to 120 or 160GB at the same price...

Downloadable content for PlayStation 3 and Xbox360 version Grand Theft Auto IV

50°
360w ago - Rockstar Games has today announced that two versions of Grand Theft Auto IV downloadable content. PlayStation 3 owners do not have to fear that they have no extra content after the release of the game.

Yesterday was announced that the postponement of Grand Theft Auto IV is due to the PlayStation 3, since developing games for this console simply takes longer than with the Xbox 360.

This problem has already been solved, various sources report that the development of the PS3 and 360 version right now. There are also believed that the PS3 and 360 version look the same, which should therefore be sure that we finally get no popular game which all fanboys gameplay videos to compare.

But Rockstar also made known that the Xbox 360 console is not the only one who downloadable content. The console from Microsoft gets two exclusive downloadable chapters, with additional missions.

They will not come to the PlayStation 3, but will consider all other downloadable content to both consoles. What exactly is this content is not yet known, but are appearing in new cars, new weapons, and maybe still some new missions.

>>> Gangs of London is $19.99 $12.99
>>> SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo is $14.99 $10.99
>>> Wipeout Pure is $14.99 $10.99

Wipeout Pure is a great deal at that price, especially for those of you that are a bit too broke to afford next month's Wipeout Pulse. And remember, no matter what -- stay away from Gangs of London.
 

Turok Patch Removes Controversial Team-Kill Feature

50°
360w ago - The controversial feature in the upcoming Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game Turok that rewards players for killing their teammates will be removed with a patch, says publisher Touchstone.

While Turok will ship with the "Grab Bag" achievement intact, the patch will be available online on February 5, the day the game hits store shelves.

The "Grab Bag" achievement was to reward players for killing "at least 1 creature, 1 enemy, 1 teammate, and yourself" in a single online match of the first-person shooter.

After the patch, the achievement will only require you to kill a creature, and enemy, and yourself -- not a teammate.

When the achievement list for the game was unveiled in November, would-be buyers were understandably upset that the developers were actually going to reward the sort of anti-social behavior that already plagues Xbox Live.

Computer And Video Games called it the "worst multiplayer achievement in the history of games."

After the controversy started up, the game's developers at Vancouver-based Propaganda Games said that they would look into releasing a patch after Turok launches "if it does become an issue."

Seems as if they decided instead to get right out in front of it. Since "Grab Bag" only affects the game's online mode, players...
