Rumor: New XBox Experience to Launch on September 25 & More!

50°
310w ago - If this is remotely true, the Internet's going to break. This post on VGChartz reckons New Xbox Experience will launch on September 25 alongside what sounds like a comedic amount of game announcements.

To quote: "Microsoft will release a dozen new demos after the launch. There will be four new downloadable pieces of content a preview of the GTA DLC. A Mass Effect expansion. Portal and a free map pack for Halo 3.

Microsoft will unveil twelve new games never seen before that will be exclusive or first on the 360. Strangely enough the author only gives out code names for said games. Though they speculate that among them is Assassins Creed 2, Mass Effect 2, a new Conker title, a Rare shooter new franchise, and two new Halo titles."

Seriously, this is highly likely to be complete bollocks. Read it, though. If it's a lie, it's a great one. The codewords for the games are priceless.
 

PSM3 Rumors: PlayTV Delay Causes, Medal Of Honor, and More!

50°
311w ago - Here is the latest news and rumors from the new PSM3 magazine's 'The Insider' article, courtesy of SWORDF1SH via GameTrailers (linked above).

To quote: Alone in the Dark is being redesigned for PS3. Expect right stick camera control, a slicker menu system and enhanced visuals.

Apparently the reason for the 6 month delay of PlayTV, is that Sony tried to implement Freesat (an HD-capable alternative to Freeview), but its impossible - for now. PlayTV 2.0? Surely not...

Guitar Hero IV shots have leaked showing in-game Ozzy Osbourne renders. But the series could be in trouble after Warner Brothers were demanding more money for use of their music in the game, and in Rock Band too.

The new Medal Of Honor is rumored to take place in modern-day Afghanistan, possibly revolving around Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Intriguing details of BioShock's PS3-exclusive 'Plasmid challenges' have emerged. They're said to play like Valves ingenious Portal featuring twisted logic puzzles.

A BioShock movie's in the works, and designer Ken Lavine has said "it'll very much honour the dramatic themes of the game".

There's a new Sly Racoon game coming to the PSP. Vigil Games, the devs of Darksiders: Wrath Of War were set to work on it, but moved to that game instead.
 

Samsung: Blu-ray will only last 5 more years, certainly not 10

311w ago - Andy Griffiths, the director of consumer electronics at Samsung UK has revealed a belief that the Blu-ray format will last only for another five years before it is replaced by something else.

He went on to say there is no chance that it will have 10 more years.

To quote: Samsung has said that it sees the Blu-ray format only lasting a further 5 years before it is replaced by another format or technology.

"I think it [Blu-ray] has 5 years left, I certainly wouldn't give it 10", Andy Griffiths, director of consumer electronics at Samsung UK told Pocket-lint in an interview.

Hoping to capitalise before it's too late, Griffiths believes that 2008 is the format's year.

"It's going to be huge", he told Pocket-lint. "We are heavily back-ordered at the moment."

312w ago - Here are some more Metal Gear Solid 4 codes for all of you who want "free" stuff. It's technically free because you don't have to exert any effort in getting them, but it's all content already on the disc, which means you already paid for it. Go figure.

Anyway, these items are not as great as last week's, but we're sure you'll enjoy them just the same.

- skynytktjp - Scanning Plug S.
- mgo2play - Subsistence Action iPod Music

Just like last week, there's another item for download in addition to the codes. "Metal Camo" is available which causes Life and Psyche gauges to decrease at half the normal rate.

Your Camo Index will also go down by 10 percent. You can grab all three items by accessing the "Extras" menu.
