Ghostbusters: The Game

50°
355w ago - The long awaited Ghostbusters III is here... and it's a game.

We might be a bit biased - after all we here at gameplayer are all children of the decade - but we reckon few would disagree that the 1980s was a pretty good era for movie trilogies. Star Wars, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Mad Max, The Karate Kid - all of these are absolute classics (well, except for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and basically all of The Karate Kid).

However, Ghostbusters is the classic '80s film trilogy that never was. By the time the excessive eighties gave way to the nondescript nineties, the franchise had only enjoyed two feature films (and a cartoon television series, The Real Ghostbusters). It was simply too late for a third movie to be made. Sigourney Weaver shaved her head and made Alien 3. Dan Ackroyd made Coneheads, and then subsequently made us throw-up with My Girl and My Girl 2. Rick Moranis shrunk some kids and then became a real estate agent, probably (or died, we're not sure). Harold Ramis focused more on writing and directing. And Bill Murray... well, Bill Murray continued to be one of the coolest guys on the planet (we love you, Bill!).

Now, through the wondrous medium that is videogames, the Ghostbusters are finally set to return. Ghostbusters: The Game is aiming to be a fully-fledged...
 

Ubisoft: We don't know what is causing Assassin's Creed PS3 issues

355w ago - Ubisoft Spokesperson Michael Beadle has commented that Ubisoft doesn't know what exactly is causing the freezing problems on Assassin's Creed for the PS3. Ubisoft is investigating the matter but noted a drop in complaints from PS3 gamers who turned off the automated loging feature of PSN.

To quote: We spoke with Michael Beadle, Ubisoft's senior public-relations manager, about the freezing problems. He says Ubisoft is investigating the matter and is not exactly sure what's causing the glitches.

The company noted a drop in complaints once PS3 gamers noticed that turning off the automated login feature on the PlayStation Network, or PSN, reduced the number of crashes. We tried this, but the game still crashed.

Ubisoft is working on a patch for the problems using feedback from gamers and blogs, Beadle says.
 

Sony: PS3 In-Game XMB Being Worked On

50°
355w ago - When the 2.0 firmware update for PS3 was finally released, many users were disappointed over the fact that the update did not include in-game XMB access as originally expected.

The good news is that we still may see in-game XMB packed in a future firmware update according to Sony marketing VP Peter Dille, to quote from the link above:

As far as in-game XMB access, we know it's a feature that's important to our consumers. Because PS3 packs so much advanced technology "under the hood," it takes some time to implement major, new functionalities, but we are working hard on addressing this feature, as well as continually expand the capabilities and functionalities of PS3.

We expect firmware updates to continue in 2008 and throughout the product's lifecycle as new technologies and enhancements become available.
