Kombo's Top 10 Most Wanted Games of 2008

50°
355w ago - If you thought 2007 was a kick-ass year for playing video games, you were right. And guess what? Things aren't going to slow down in 2008. The year 2007 saw numerous delays of major titles, and all those bad boys are coming out in 2008. We're counting down our 10 most wanted games of the year.

For a game to have been considered in our top 10, it must be a console/handheld game, officially announced and set with a release date for 2008 in North America. Without further ado, grab a bag of popcorn and join us as we count down to our most wanted game of 2008.

10) Ninja Gaiden II

Team Ninja's anticipated sequel to Ninja Gaiden (Xbox) is set to hit Xbox 360 in 2008, and as expected, it looks to be every bit as gorgeous as an Itagaki game should be. The bloody action game comes with new weapons, areas, enemies, bosses and an all-new storyline following Ryu's mission to save the race of humanity from extinction. Additionally, Ninja Gaiden II is expected to be the bloodiest and goriest in the series, so far, and like its predecessor, it's only on Microsoft's system.

9) LittleBigPlanet

Since its unveiling at GDC last year, we've been intrigued and excited about Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet. The social platformer lets you create your own levels and share them with other...

356w ago - Last November when we revealed Ghostbusters on our December issue cover, it sent the Internet into a dizzy. Not only will Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murry and Ernie Hudson be doing voiceovers for the game, but Aykroyd and Ramis are actually writing the game's script.

Because the two penned the earlier movies, fans will be getting exactly what they could ever want out of a Ghostbusters game.

Now we're ready to blitz you again with a huge load of media. We have almost 200 screenshots, renders and art pieces for you to pick through and drool over, Slimer style.

GameFly: Burnout Paradise Leads The Races

50°
356w ago - This week's top rental charts from U.S. game rental company GameFly, representing the most requested games for the week ending January 21st, highlight both to-be-released and already released games in a unique demand-specific chart.

Burnout Paradise hangs on to the top spot for the second week in a row. Capcom's Devil May Cry 4, slated to release February 5th, made the top five twice last week --the Xbox 360 SKU in second position, and the PS3 SKU in fourth -- but this week, the Xbox 360 SKU steps back a spot to third, while the PS3 SKU fails to chart in the top 5.

Last week's third placer Turok advances into the second position, and No More Heroes also moves up one spot into fourth, significant as the top five all-platform rental requests often tend to be a mirror of the Xbox 360's top five. Sega's The Club enters the top five this week in fifth.

What follows is a breakdown of the top titles requested by GameFly subscribers across each of the major platforms:

Xbox 360

1. Burnout Paradise (Electronic Arts)
2. Turok (Touchstone)
3. Devil May Cry 4 (Capcom)
4. The Club (Sega)
5. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 (Ubisoft)

Nintendo Wii

1. No More Heroes (Ubisoft)
2. Endless Ocean (Nintendo)
3. Super Smash Bros....

Reeves reveals 1 million consoles were sold in PAL regions in December

50°
357w ago - Sales of Sony's PlayStation 3 are on course to overtake Microsoft's Xbox 360 in Europe by the summer of this year, according to Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's president and CEO David Reeves.

According to Reeves the console is already outselling its rival in France, Spain, Germany and Italy, and over 1 million units were sold across the continent in the December build-up to Christmas last year.

On top of that, the latest numbers show Sony with a three-to-one advantage over the 360 in sales last week.

Reeves, talking to MCV, also explained that around a fifth of that number was down to the UK alone: "We're very happy with the performance of PS3 in the UK," he said.

He added that his company's console now had a higher cumulative installed base in some regions.

"It has not yet reached that in the UK. But the team here expect to overtake the installed base of Xbox 360 across all PAL territories in late summer.

"It's also worth mentioning that last week we outsold Xbox 360 in PAL territories by a ratio of three-to-one."

Momentum seems to be building for Sony's flagship console following a torrid time last year, as the effects of the price cut and increasing popularity of Blu-ray continue to kick in.
