266w ago - Update: According to Dutch site [Register or Login to view links], the Uncharted 2 European release date will be October 16, 2009.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is almost here, with Sony confirming to Kotaku (linked above) today that the Naughty Dog developed PlayStation 3 game will arrive in the U.S. on October 13th.

To quote: Sony also released Uncharted 2's final box art, reminding us of Mr. Drake's expert ability to hang from ledges and platforms with just one hand.

Combine that with his expertise at maintaining a shirt that's half-tucked, half-not and you'll see why the stubbly treasure hunter's adventures warranted a sequel.

Oh, and speaking of pre-orders, Sony laid out its retailer plans for a quartet of downloadable exclusives with Amazon.com, GameStop, Game Crazy and BestBuy. Golden guns, right after this.

Yes, those are the golden Barettas that Drake can wield in multiplayer, adding a bit of flash to your online death match and "Plunder" competition. They're exclusive to BestBuy, meaning that if you're into sporting golden AK-47s, that should be your pre-order retailer of choice.

Other retailers are getting downloadable exclusive bonuses too, as follows:

Press Release: New competitive multiplayer maps for "Halo 3: ODST" revealed

LONDON - 7 July 2009 - Lock and load!

The three new "Halo 3: ODST" maps are Heretic, Citadel and Longshore:

• Heretic returns players to familiar ground as the "Halo 2" arena Midship makes its long-rumored debut in "Halo 3." The stark interior of the Pious Inquisitor might appear austere on first glance, but Heretic's symmetrical spaces require players to execute complex strategies in order to outplay their opponents.

• Citadel may be a long abandoned Forerunner stronghold, but its small, symmetrical confines are far from secure. Two opposing bases offer little safety for players looking for solace. Instead, Citadel forces small squads to stay in constant communication, keep their heads on a swivel, and be prepared to adjust combat tactics in close quarters.

269w ago - By way of EA/Visceral Games comes Dante's Inferno. Taking a page right out of God of War, it features a hero named Dante of course, who wields a multifunctional sickle-like weapon as his main instrument of death.

Unlike Kratos, who goes about his business at a merciless pace Dante appears to be more noble as he battles the nine circles of the underworld; Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Anger, Heresy, Violence, Fraud and Treachery.

As Dante's Inferno is slated for a December 2010 release, gamers will certainly have gotten their feel of Kratos' next adventure and once again the bar will have been set even higher. An exclusive Dante's Inferno gameplay video is below.





Dante's Inferno is looking to take the adventures of Kratos to the next level and hopefully high enough to force Kratos out of retirement. It will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, and PlayStation Portable.
 

Socom Confrontation 1.50 Update Details, 1.60 Plans Revealed

200°
270w ago - The Socom Confrontation Online Team has announced the following news, on both the 1.50 and 1.60 patch updates respectively:

The 1.50 Update for SOCOM: Confrontation is feature complete and currently in test. Due to the number and scope of the feature set of 1.50 the testing cycle has taken longer than anticipated.

We remain committed to releasing this patch as soon as the remaining open issues are resolved. It is extremely important to us to make sure the 1.50 update is as problem free as possible when it is released and we are working towards that goal rather than pushing it out as is on a specific date.

A number of features in 1.50 are of such a scale that it will not be possible for us to fully predict how they will behave before public deployment. An example of this is the tournaments, each of which can accommodate 1000s of players.

To account for this, we will ramp the size and number of tournaments during the first weeks after release to monitor and address any issues which may arise. We have also been working on a 1.60 Update which will incorporate any fixes that are required as Tournaments and Clan Ladders become fully populated.

FREE Downloadable Content:

We are happy to announce that the 1.60 Update will also contain additional features...
