Rumor: Killzone 2 Levels are to Take 50 Minutes

250°
325w ago - According to a member of the GameTrailers Forum, someone over at NEOGAF learned that Killzone 2 will take about 45/50 minutes to complete each level. To quote:

"I saw Playr this morning too. It's basically the new version of Gamer TV. Made by the same people with the same format but with a different, less nasally, presenter. Airs in the UK on Bravo at the weekend (a satellite/cable channel).

They had a Sony rep demoing KZ2. He spoke about AI advancements although it wasn't abundantly clear that the clips tallied with what he was saying.

Couple of other things though. The dude said there were some new weapons that people would be impressed with. He then cryptically added that we'd see them in the next couple of months. Magazine exclusive reveal or more likely E3?

He also said every level would take about 45/50 minutes to complete"
 

Europe PS3 sales overtake X-Box 360

50°
325w ago - Sony's PlayStation 3 games console has outsold Microsoft's Xbox 360 in Europe, according to figures released by Sony. More than five million PS3s have been sold across the continent, Sony's David Reeves confirmed.

Speaking at a European PlayStation event in London, he said: "The numbers are a testament to the strength of the PlayStation brand."

He said PlayStation 3 had been outselling the Xbox 360 since October last year.

"We have sold more PlayStation 3's throughout Europe than Xbox 360 even though they launched 16 months before us."

Mr Reeves, head of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, also said 12 million PSP handheld consoles and 48 million PlayStation 2s had been sold in Europe.
 

Activision boss concerned over Take-Two/EA merge

50°
326w ago - Activision boss Bobby Kotick has expressed concerns about the possibility of a merge between EA and Take-Two.

"That's concerning, sure," he told Reuters. "When you think about one company in control of the sports category, with no competition from anybody else, that could be a challenge."

That the deal would also knock the Activision-Vivendi deal out of the Guinness Book of Records is also playing on his mind, we'd wager.

The $18 billion deal currently stands as biggest in the history of video games, but it's expected that an EA / Take-Two merge would be worth significantly more. Now that GTA IV is out, talks between the two companies are expected to start soon.

Yahoo lukewarm on Microsoft bid

50°
330w ago - Internet search engine Yahoo says it is "not opposed" to Microsoft's takeover bid, but wants a better price.

The letter from Yahoo's board was a swift response to a deadline issued at the weekend by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for Yahoo to agree to the deal.

Microsoft warned if the deal was not accepted by 26 April, it would mount a hostile takeover at a lower price.

The software giant made an unsolicited $44.6bn (£22.3bn) takeover offer for Yahoo on 31 January.

But Yahoo rejected the deal, saying it substantially underrated the company's value and prospects.

'Counterproductive'

"We have continued to make clear that we are not opposed to a transaction with Microsoft if it is in the best interests of our stockholders," the letter said.

"Our position is simply that any transaction must be at a value that fully reflects the value of Yahoo, including any strategic benefits to Microsoft, and on terms that provide certainty to our stockholders."

In the letter, Yahoo said the threat to begin a hostile takeover was "counter-productive".

Yahoo has been seeking links with other media and internet firms that would help it retain its independence.

However, most companies with the financial clout to rescue...
