Iron Man on Blu-ray Recalled; Possibly Delayed

50°
314w ago - Update: We have received word from Paramount that they will meet the street date, and that the 'Iron Man' Blu-ray will not be delayed.

Blu-ray.com is reporting that the upcoming Blu-ray release of 'Iron Man' has been recalled. A few weeks back, some of those receiving review copies reported trouble playing the disc in their Blu-ray players. Apparently, there is an authoring problem with the disc, and distributors have been issued direction to send back all product.

According to those distributors, Paramount is doing everything possible to get enough replacement discs to retailers in time for its September 30th release date, but it may not be able to meet the demand. If Paramount can't get enough titles onto retail shelves, they may delay the title until October 7th.

Online retailers like Amazon are likely to ship first-come, first-serve, so make sure you have your pre-order in now if you haven't done so already.
 

EuroGamer: LittleBigPlanet European BETA Keys All Gone

200°
314w ago - A short while ago, Euro gaming Web site Eurogamer announced that they were offering 5800 keys for the LittleBigPlanet European BETA, and then they quickly disappeared under a raging tide of sack boy-hungry Europeans.

The sheer numbers have brought the Web site to its knees - with users trying to get there simply to get the link to entry page for the story and have had no luck whatsoever, and with the key offer requiring Eurogamer registration, both the front and and back end are getting completely slammed, bringing to mind a mental picture that I will quickly put out of my head.

Needless to say, all of the LittleBigPlanet keys are now gone, with this note: Sorry for all those who had trouble connecting during the stampede, and apologies to those who missed out.
 

Yahoo: Top 20 Games for Fall 2008

50°
314w ago - Here are Yahoo's picks for the Top 20 games of fall, 2008:

Lego Batman
Platforms: PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PS2, PSP, DS
Genre: Action
Release Date: September 23

The caped crusader gets an angular makeover in Lego Batman. Protect Gotham as Batman and sidekick Robin from a rash of criminals, including nefarious villains like The Penguin, Two-Face, The Riddler and Mr. Freeze. Utilize a wealth of Bat-gadgets to survive over 30 levels in another comical Lego adventure.

Why It's Hot:
It's Lego. It's Batman. If you can't suss out why this is hot, we're not sure we can help you. Go sit in the corner and put on your Bat-dunce cap.

Why It's Not:
We stand by these Lego games because they are that very rare breed of video game that appeals equally to parents and kids. Still, they're all sort of the same game. If you've played Lego Star Wars and Lego Indy, don't expect a huge change in gameplay with the blocky Dark Knight.

Dead Space
Platforms: Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC
Genre: Action
Release Date: October 14

In space, no one can hear you scream....but scream you will while playing EA's survival-horror game Dead Space. Set on a spaceship overrun with hostile alien beasties, this sci-fi frightfest is as cinematic...
 

Mirror's Edge finally gets Dated, Arrives on November 11

200°
314w ago - EA has announced that the much-hyped free-running FPS Mirror's Edge will launch on November 11th on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with the PC version shipping "later in the winter". That of course means that it might not make 2008. Sad times for PC gamers.

Nevertheless, the publisher also confirmed that a demo would be available prior to release on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, allowing gamers to trial a segment of the single player mode. Starting September 26th, gamers who pre-order the game at selected retailers will also get an exclusive code that unlocks a Time Trial mode in the demo.

"Mirror's Edge is bringing something new to the action-adventure genre this holiday by putting the player in the shoes of the hero, seeing what she sees, feeling what she feels," says Owen O'Brien, Senior Producer, DICE. "We wanted to create an entirely new experience, with a different type of heroine and a world that not only looks fresh and new but has unique gameplay."

As EA were quick to remind us, Mirror's Edge delivers players straight into the shoes of Faith, a modern day heroine who traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat, fast-paced chases and challenging puzzles. And it looks great.

XBox Pure was Actually Contaminated

100°
314w ago - Xbox Pure was meant to be the name of an upcoming Xbox 360, perhaps a slimline version or a new 360 successor, but has turned out to be a fake blog posting to see which games sites would run with it. With so many rumours online, was this a fair test of a gamer site's fact-checking skills?

Games Web site "Cheap Ass Gamer" (CAG) had listed a blog posting by "desz", claiming to potentially have the details of the Xbox's "new name".

The posting says: "I'm not completely positive how true this is, but most of the things GilZ sends my way are true. He was correct about the new price drops, new HDMI models, new Elites, and now a picture sent to us with clearly visible text, in what appears to be either the 360's new name or the next xbox's final name. "XBOXPure" is what looks to be the final choice in this document. Take a look!"

The picture in question is a plain sheet of paper with some text claiming to be a memo from Microsoft, with handwriting making some points, while showing that "Xbox Pure" was the "final" name chosen for the new box.

As you'd imagine, with plenty of rumors flying around the Internet all the time (just think of all those supposed iPhone or iPod pics that...
