GTA IV Better on PS3 Comment Blown out of Proportion

50°
326w ago - Multiple comments and rumors are circulating around the Internet that involve people arguing about which console will have the better version of Grand Theft Auto IV.

Comments made by Adriaan on the Web site yesterday were blown way out of proportion. Both versions of the game offer an unparalleled experience. Both versions offer superior graphics. Both versions will have excellent online capabilities. After playing both versions for hours myself, I can attest to this.

The answer to the question of "Should I get the PS3 or Xbox 360 version?" can be easily answered by asking yourself this question: Which version will your friends be playing online... the people that you want to play the game with?

That's it. Answer that question and you will be able to make your decision with ease. It really is that simple.
 

Criterion reveals the Biggest News in Burnout History

100°
326w ago - It's bikes; as in, bikes are coming to Burnout Paradise!

"For the first time, we'll let you loose in a Burnout game on motorbikes!" Criterion exclaims, explaining that it's planning to get bikes in via its Davis update for the racer. It's expecting to have the update out in August.

"And because we're dedicated to bringing you game-changing new Burnout Paradise content all year, bikes will feature their own game modes, challenges and even some new locations tailored to fit their unique performance and handing characteristics", the developer continues.

It adds, "The other big news relating to bikes is that we've introduced night-time to Burnout Paradise for the first time.

"We wanted to clear the traffic out a little to give you the chance to learn how to ride in safety, and we've always wanted to cruise the streets of Paradise City with incredible night-time visuals.

We expect to ship bikes as part of our Davis software update, due for release sometime in August." Criterion says it'll have first footage showing bikes up on its Web site soon.
 

Lighter, more efficient PS3s on the way!

50°
326w ago - Those rumors of a Slim and Lite PS3 may still be unfounded, but lighter and more efficient PS3s are in the making - thanks to "third generation" heat sinks.

Japanese company Furukawa Electric Co recently showcased a new heat sink for the PS3, said to be far lighter, smaller and cheaper than the previous two "generations" of PS3 heat sink.

We won't bore you with specifics because, by and large, heat sinks are about as exciting as snail races. But the graphics chip and CPU in the so-called "third generation" consoles will be cooled by smaller, separate heat sinks, rather than one large one, and weigh a total of 350g, compared with 700g and 500g for the first and second iterations.

The new heat sinks are, according to this, in development now, meaning we should have lighter, more efficient PS3s within months, and you won't need a forklift to lug your new console home from the shops.
 

Jack Thompson hounds Rockstar boss'... MOTHER

100°
326w ago - Jack Thompson, the anti-GTA lawyer, has fumed at the production of the "murder simulator" GTA IV in a letter sent to the MUM of Rockstar boss Strauss Zelnick.

Thompson suggested that she should be "ashamed of herself" in the letter, which has been reported on in the Metro.

"The pornography and violence that your son traffics in is the kind of stuff that most mothers would be ashamed to see their son putting into the hands of other mothers' children," he ranted.

"Maybe you, Mrs Zelnick, were so taken by your handsome son that you spared the rod and spoiled the child. That would explain why he has brought you, by the way he presently acts, to shame."

He goes on to claim that experts hold GTA and Strauss' "entrepreneurial energy", in part, responsible for a "plethora of cop killings".

It gets better: "Your son, this very moment, is doing everything he possibly can to sell as many copies of GTA IV to teen boys. If you trained up Strauss to do this, then shame on you," he said.

We'd love to have been in Mrs Zelnick's 'How to Sell a Murder Simulator' classes.

"What you will see in your son's game," he added, "if this iteration is anything like its predecessors, is incredible interactive violence aimed at police offers (whom you can shoot in...
 

EchoChrome Soundtrack to hit Japan on May 21st!

50°
326w ago - It looks like EchoChrome has been a big game in Japan. And now they want more! And thanks to the game being such a big hit, Sony has been given the go-ahead to start producing a soundtrack for this game.

The soundtrack will feature 13 of the soothing tracks in EchoChrome. It will either send you into a deep sleep, or give you headaches just thinking about the mind boggling puzzles.

And now that the game has just been released in the US and in Europe, chances are it will probably be on the wish list of a lot of logical minded gamers in the US and in Europe.

The CD will retail for 2,940円 ($28.21 US). No news on it being released outside of Japan as of yet though.
