294w ago - According to numerous reports, release group iCON has leaked the PAL X-Box 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV onto a number of file-sharing Web sites.
It weighs in at 6.32 GB and appears to be the real deal, with unscrupulous individuals now posting gameplay clips on GameTrailers and the like, which will no doubt be swiftly taken down by Take-Two's legal team soon.
If you do happen to have a modded X-Box 360, we hope that you can wait six more days to purchase the real thing and not resort to illegal activities. :P
299w ago - Recently a group of forum posters uncovered a bunch of unreleased media (more screenshots at the link above) relating to the recently trademarked "Sonic Unleashed" via SEGA's FTP server.
While official details are non-existent at this point, it's believed that Sonic Unleashed will retain the gameplay mechanics of classic Sonic titles with a combination of 2D/3D graphics (aka 2.5D) ala Sonic Rivals, only without the racing sequences.
SEGA has yet to comment on the validity of the leaks, however below is a video courtesy of jeztac33:
299w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has issued a statement in response to the leaked memo that revealed release dates for a number of upcoming PlayStation Network releases, including Home.
To quote: Internal working documents naturally have proposed dates against titles, but these change frequently and dates are not confirmed until issued as part of a press release or formal announcement.
The same applies to titles of games, which may be working titles or placeholders subject to later confirmation. As a result, no weight should be given to titles or dates that appear in this document, other than to those which have already been formally confirmed.
In summary, the list is indeed real, but the dates on it are subject to change. :P
