Rumor: There Will Probably Be a Modern Warfare 2 Controller

200°
279w ago - There seems to be a new controller rumored to be designed for the Modern Warfare 2 game. If this is going to be included in the preorder, it's going to be awesome!!!

To quote: Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling jumped on his [Register or Login to view links] earlier today, asking for help. Help with the design for a Modern Warfare 2 control pad.

The message reads: In a design meeting for a #MW2 controller. Need your advice - Concave or Convex grips for the Analog sticks? Whats your preference and why?

Bowling later confirmed that this controller won't be coming from Activision or Infinity Ward, so it's most likely something similar to Mad Catz's Street Fighter IV pads, which seemed to go down pretty well.

279w ago - I slapped the 'rumor' status on this one for now until others can confirm it... today TheSixthAxis.com (linked above) via [Register or Login to view links] are claiming that Sony finally pushed the button marked "obligatory" on PS3 Firmware Update 2.80.

This comes after Sony's Director of Network Operations stated that with 2.8 it was an option to update as there wasn't any consumer-specific functionality.

According to both the [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] Updaters, it still is showing only 2.76 is required to go online with the PS3, as follows:

Dest=84;CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion=2.7600-;
Dest=85;CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion=2.7600-;

If anyone can confirm otherwise, feel free to do so in the comments below!
 

Rumor: Microsoft's Surprise Reveal for Comic-Con a Rare Project?

200°
279w ago - Gavin Price, Principal Designer at Rare Ltd./Microsoft Game Studios, is [Register or Login to view links] an "as yet unannounced project" from January 2009 until present.

Perhaps this will debut at Comic-Con International this year, which is set to run from July 23-26, 2009. To quote:

Rare Ltd. / Microsoft Game Studios
(Privately Held; Computer Games industry)
January 2009 – Present (7 months)

Following a reshuffle at Rare, I've taken on further responsibility in a new principal designer role on a very exciting new project.

Price also worked on Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. So it's unlikely it's a brand new title in that franchise.

Could we finally see the re-emergence of Perfect Dark? Or even Killer Instinct? Maybe even Kameo? How about Jet Force Gemini? Meanwhile, we pray Grabbed by the Ghoulies 2 most definitely doesn't happen.
 

Rumor: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves to Arrive on September 30?

50°
280w ago - French Web site PS3Gen shared an alleged 'leaked' copy of Sony's PS3 games calendar for this year.

Among the biggest revelations unveiled in this calendar would be the supposed release date of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves which shows a release date of September 30, 2009.

To quote: Up to now, Naughty Dog would go no farther than to give us the release window of their highly anticipated sequel, keeping it pinned at an "Autumn release."

They have also so far debunked rumors of an October launch for the game, which this calendar, as you will see, does corroborate.

That's because Uncharted 2 is listed as being released on 30/9/2009 = September 30, 2009. Definitely, that's not October. It's Autumn, yeah, but not October.

Included in the alleged leaked info would be a still undated Gran Turismo 5, as well as two Singstar titles for Michael Jackson, one being with the special microphone.

Take this news with a fair grain of salt in the meantime, until we hear anything more substantial - and better yet, official - word from Sony or Naughty Dog themselves.
 

Rumor: God of War Movie Script Leaked?!

100°
280w ago - CinCity2000 (linked above) reports that they've come across the advance script of the God of War movie, which was written by David Self.

The the movie seems to be based on the events on the first God of War. The script (or parts of it) were not published, but the claim is big enough to spark this juicy rumor anew.

Spoiler Warning: We all know what happened in God of War one, and despite the close adherence of the movie to the in-game storyline, the ending will be different: Instead of accepting the offer to replace Ares as the God of War, Kratos refuses, continues his cliff dive, whispering "Your turn, Hades..." as he falls.

Now we turn to who's playing Kratos. For me, no one will ever make a better Kratos than Vin Diesel, and perhaps Goldberg would come a distant second.

Lead game designer David Jaffe, however, wants Djimon Honsou to take the role. Djimon's a great actor and everything, but he doesn't quite give out a fierce Kratos aura like Vin Diesel can.

Just a reminder - this is a rumor, so let's not get carried away... just yet. It's not clear whether the script was part of the Brett Ratner-directed movie that got shelved, or if this one is a new project under a new director.
