Ghostbusters could come to PSP

300°
346w ago - Terminal Reality has revealed the new Ghostbusters game could make it onto PSP after all.

So far the game has been confirmed for PC, PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360 and DS - while Sony's handheld appeared to be missing out.

But according to executive producer Brendan Goss, that could change in the future. "There are discussions right now about a PSP version," he told Eurogamer.

"We're waiting to see how the PS2 stuff goes from a technical side with memory, then it may get ported to the PSP."

The PS2 version of Ghostbusters, like the Wii game, features more cartoony visuals and a simpler narrative than the Xbox 360, PC and PS3 titles. There's also an exclusive offline co-op mode where you can take on another player as either a ghost or a ghostbuster.
 

GTA IV to come to PC this November?

50°
346w ago - With the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV upon us, many Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners are more than ready to get started on the title, but will PC gamers have something to look forward to this November?

According to German video games retailer citydisc.ch, a PC version of GTA IV will be released on November 30 of this year.

Back in January, the same rumor began circulating that Rockstar would release a PC version, but in October. That rumor cited retail plans.

Previous titles of the Grand Theft Auto series have taken between six to eight months to arrive on the PC after debuting on console, which makes a November release plausible.

Grand Theft Auto IV heads onto both the Xbox 360 and PS3 Tuesday. Rockstar Games has yet to confirm if the game will ever see the light of day on PC.
 

GTA IV expected to top 9 million sales at launch

346w ago - There's no Burger King tie-in or special flavor of Mountain Dew. No commercial directed by Peter Jackson, or even an action figure.

The run-up to "Grand Theft Auto IV" has been considerably less ballyhooed than last year's over-the-top "Halo 3" debut. Yet when "GTA IV" parks on store shelves on April 29, the latest entry in the controversial video game franchise could be the most lucrative launch in entertainment history – and one that many people may not even know about.

Analysts predict Take-Two Interactive Software and Rockstar Games' open-world, action-driving game will easily top last year's record-breaking $300 million first-week sales of Microsoft and Bungee Studios' first-person shooter "Halo 3" – and without a similar marketing bonanza.

With the launch of "GTA IV" on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Rockstar is seemingly steering in one direction: the downlow.

"Rockstar wants to control the message all the time," says Sam Kennedy, editorial director for the gaming site 1UP.com. "They want this to be seen and perceived exactly the way they want. That's why – outside of the official trailers they released – people haven't seen a lot of gameplay footage in advance of 'GTA IV' shipping. They want to build that hype."

Take-Two and Rockstar declined to...
 

Siren New Translation Demo Impressions

50°
346w ago - A while back, we broke the news to you that there will be a new Siren game coming for the Playstation 3, however, what was more interesting was the fact that Japanese Game Magazine Famitsu stated that the game could be released as soon as this summer with a demo planned for the end of April. Well, the demo certainly did arrive, and I had the pleasure to downloading it to give it a quick test drive.

Siren New Translation is a remake of the original game from back in 2003 for the Playstation 2. Now with the added power of the Playstation 3, Sony's Japan Studio can make the game they originally wanted to do back in 2003.

The first thing you will notice is that while the subtitles and tips that pops up on the screen are in Japanese, the voice acting is all in English, which makes understanding the game a whole lot easier for those of us who are not fluent in Japanese. You start as a character known as Sam Monroe. All you have on you is a flashlight, and by god, you need that flashlight.

The start of the demo is very, very dark. The only thing you can see is what your flashlight is glazing over. This sets the mood as very tense and creepy, and the excellent music playing really adds to the already creepy atmosphere. I then set off to look for the rest of the crew, and as I walked up the steps,...
 

GTA IV sex video gives Thompson, other critics fresh ammo

50°
346w ago - Grand Theft Auto IV is one day away from release, and already Jack Thompson has begun to step up his war on the title. The embattled Florida attorney has written a letter to the US Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, R. Alexander Acosta, demanding that legal action be taken against Take Two and retailers for selling the game. This time, Thompson appears to have an unlikely ally thanks to video gaming news site IGN.

Thompson sent a copy of the letter to Ars Technica, and his demands are far-reaching. "Indictments should be returned against Take Two corporately and its Chairman, Strauss Zelnick, along with other Take Two officers. Indictment should also be against Sony and Microsoft which are making this pornographic game available to minors, and openly so, on their PS3 and Xbox systems," Thompson wrote. "Further, indictments should be handed down against Wal-Mart, Best Buy, GameStop, and all other retailers distributing this game to minors at their retail stores, openly, to kids who are only seventeen."

He then compares the game to, of all things, polio. "Grand Theft Auto IV is the gravest assault upon children in this country since polio. We now have vaccines for that virus... The 'vaccine' that must be administered by the United States government to deal with this virtual virus of violence...
