346w ago - Unfortunate Internet leaks may have reduced the wow factor, but Microsoft Game Studios has finally revealed its list of big-hitting 360 software releases from now until the end of the year.

The platform holder is set to confirm the list at its product showcase in San Francisco later today.

Epic's Gears of War 2 will be introduced at the show first, with MS confirming that today's showcase event will see the studio's Cliff Bleszinski "demonstrate dramatic new gameplay elements and stunning visual effects in a campaign sequence from early in the game". The title is due for a Holiday (Christmas) release.

Rare-developed Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise will also be shown off, and is scheduled for a September release.

For the first time, players will be able to collaborate together on a garden through a rich co-op experience, connect and play with others online via Xbox Live as well as instantly introduce new piñata species to their garden through an innovative new feature utilizing the Xbox Live Vision Camera.

Rumor: New PS3 Firmware to fix GTA IV issues on 60 GB model

50°
346w ago - According to a poster named intimidtr3 on the US PlayStation Boards, 2K games Tech Support have said that Sony are looking into producing a new firmware just for the earlier version of the PS3 to fix the GTA IV issues.

To quote: Hello Xxxxx,

There is an issue with the launch edition of the PS3 and this game, the game was checked over and passed as 100% compatible with the current version of the PS3, of course the earlier version has custom chips which mean that it is a very different animal from the current PS3 on sale.

Sony are aware of this difference and are looking into producing a new firmware just for the earlier version of the PS3.

Kind Regards,
