Diablo III's Rumored 2010 Release Date is Not Very Likely

50°
292w ago - It has recently surfaced that a Diablo III fan site has jumped to the conclusion that Blizzard has somehow "confirmed" Diablo III's release for 2010.

They've made this assessment based on Blizzard's recent [Register or Login to view links] that it is planning to release one "frontline" title per year, just as it has in the past.

Expansion packs like The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King could easily fall under this very definition, based on both their pricing and the amount of content they have to offer.

While it is more than likely that Starcraft II will be released this year based on the fact that it is going into Beta very soon, as with everything Blizzard has ever done, nothing can be certain until they make the actual announcement.

With that said, even if Starcraft II comes out this year, there's absolutely no guarantee that Diablo III will be their next game.

The fact remains that World of Warcraft remains an extremely popular title, and the possibility for the release of yet another, perhaps final expansion pack is almost certainly guaranteed.

Beyond World of Warcraft, Blizzard has already announced plans for two Starcraft II expansion packs which...

Sony: No Plans for Rumored March PlayStation 3 Price Cut

200°
303w ago - Responding to new rumors of a PS3 price cut in March 2009, a Sony Computer Entertainment America rep told Edge, "There are no plans for a price reduction on PS3 in March 09, and anything reported on or discussed otherwise is purely rumor or speculation."

Over the weekend, online magazine D+Pad cited an anonymous source who purportedly attended a Sony staff briefing in London where execs said the PS3 will have a more competitive price from March 2009 and beyond.

March 31, 2009 marks the end of Sony's fiscal year, during which the company expects to sell 10 million PS3 units, or about flat compared to the previous year.

Sony has repeatedly denied a PS3 price cut will take place before the holidays.

Currently, Xbox 360s retail from $199 to $399 and Wiis sell for $249 in the U.S. Standard 80GB PS3s sell for $399.

SCEA sales VP Ian Jackson recently told analysts at the BMO Capital Markets Interactive Entertainment Conference, "There is no product in the industry today on the videogame console market that delivers what a PlayStation 3 delivers for under $400, in the case of the 80GB."

It is developed by Sony, hence it will be a PS3 exclusive and is described as residing within the military genre and carries a 12 rating.

Props go to VicViper from NeoGAF (linked above) for pointing this out.

The PLAYSTATION Network will be offline for 5 hours today from 3pm BST (4pm CEST) for maintenance work. It's pretty much all behind-the-scenes work and is, most definitely, not the 2.4 System Software update. Sorry, you need to wait a little longer for that one!

During this maintenance, the following online services may not be available:

- PSN account registration,
- PSN account sign-in,
- PSN account management,
- PlayStation Store purchases,
- online gaming, unless you are already logged in at 3pm
- forum login

In related news, self-proclaimed Sony employee Knight613 from GameFAQs states that PS3 Firmware v2.40 was supposed to come out on June 18th, but a bad error was found and needed fixing. Now the date is very early July (1st to 3rd), and the RC release is already ready... so it's just a matter of time.

To quote: 2.40 was supposed to come out June 18th actually... till they found a pretty bad error with the XMB and had to fix it. New date is supposedly July 2ndish,...
