Confirmed: BioShock on PS3 has 5GB, 10-Minute HDD Install

300°
306w ago - Update: Just like the original BioShock, today [Register or Login to view links] has confirmed that BioShock 2 also includes a 5GB PS3 HDD installation, and will arrive in North America on February 9, 2010.

The PS3 version of BioShock has a 5GB mandatory install that takes a little over 10 minutes to complete.

While the game's trundling onto your hard drive, your TV shows your Rapture ads and plays a little piano music.

The game was rumored to have a sizable install after the BBFC rated the game back in July, but 2K commented at the time that it was likely to have an install of "around 5 or 6 minutes" at most, according to this DarkZero report.

The news comes from the new Eurogamer playtest.

BioShock releases for PS3 on October 24, 2008.

Lost Mission Discovered in Call of Duty 4

200°
307w ago - A curious PC gamer has discovered a previously unseen mission in Call of Duty 4 - an extended training sequence that was dropped from the final game.

The find was reported by Infinity Ward's community chap Robert Bowling, and the video is below courtesy of aCoDModder. It shows what Infinity Ward originally had between the rifle range and the timed run through the mock house that the game uses to suggest a difficulty setting. An embarassingly low one, in my case.

Can't say the game suffers all that much for leaving it out, but it does answer one question for me: when I played, I really did wonder why they'd left that crappy-looking car outside the training building. Nice to know it was there for a reason... Enjoy!




 

Call of Duty 4: New Playlists and Double-XP Promo Coming?

50°
307w ago - According to Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward's director of communications, the team has an Xbox Live and PlayStation Network promotion in the pipeline for the weekend of September 13th. Exact details of the promotion haven't yet been revealed, but Bowling stated that double-experience points will be on offer for those itching to raise their in-game rank quickly.

More interesting, however, is the fact that Infinity Ward's developers are pushing hard to complete their new playlist updates in time for the promotion - making it all one-big promotion, says Bowling.

Should the team manage to get it done, and certified by both Microsoft and Sony, we could see some of the following playlists next weekend. Be aware, though, that Bowling has stated that the following list is far from final, and there's currently no telling what we'll receive.

To quote: Back from PAX means back to work, and while it's a short week thanks to Labor Day it's the one time I wish it wasn't because I have a lot of stuff to get done. I'm currently working on getting everything organized and together for an upcoming Xbox Live / PSN promotion we have coming up the weekend of Sept. 13th - 14th.

Which isn't this weekend, but next weekend. I will have exact details on what it is in the near future but...
 

Confirmed: No Trophy Support for Fallout 3 at Launch

50°
307w ago - Bethesda's Vice President of Marketing Pete Hines has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 version of Fallout 3 will not include Trophy support when the game hits stores later this year, but did not rule out the possibility of the feature being added at a later date.

"Not at launch," said Hines, during an interview with PSU.com to be published later today.

"It remains to be seen what we do down the road. It wasn't something we were able to incorporate into the game for launch."

With Fallout 3 set to release on October 28 in the U.S., Bethesda will have a few options in terms of additional PlayStation 3 support, as Sony's PlayStation Home service is set to launch around the same time frame.
