321w ago - Back in September, an uncut pre-release version of Rockstar Games' Manhunt 2 for the PlayStation 2 found its way onto the Internet.
As part of a Sky News report which looked at how 'easy' children could download Manhunt 2, they seeked comment from Rockstar on the matter of the leaked code- who stated that the person who leaked the code has been sacked and proceedings are taking place. The leaker, who was not directly involved with Rockstar, had been caught and fired.
It accepts the game was leaked onto the Web by an employee of a different company who had access to the preview copy.
323w ago - Shortly after Rock Band was first announced for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, retailers posted product pages for the game's various instruments and an all-in-one bundle. However, Harmonix and MTV Games remained stubbornly mum on the subject of pricing and package options for the music game.
That changed today when a Harmonix rep confirmed for GameSpot that Amazon.com's latest changes to the game's price and release date are accurate. The online retailer is currently listing the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 bundles of the game for $169.99, with a November 23 release date.
In addition to that news, the representative also confirmed the PlayStation 2 version's price and release date. Last-generation gamers will have to wait a little longer to shred, but the price of admission won't be quite so steep, because the PS2 bundle will sell for $159.99 when it arrives December 10. The game and instruments will also be available separately.
Both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 bundles will include the game, a wired drum kit, and a microphone. The 360 bundle will also come with a wired Fender Stratocaster guitar controller and USB hub, whereas the PS3 bundle will come with a wireless version of the Stratocaster controller and no USB hub. The PS3 edition's instruments can also be used with the PS2 edition...
