The Games of 2008

50°
365w ago - While there are still a lot of games that haven't been announced yet, with the new year, it's worth taking a look at some of the games that are going to be ringing in the cash when the ball drops for 2009. 2008 was a stellar, record-setting year in the videogame industry, and 2008 should top those records (assuming Wii demand continues). There are certainly plenty of killer apps coming out on the software side.

Grand Theft Auto IV--Rockstar Games delayed the first next gen iteration of its best-selling franchise to this year, which means record sales are guaranteed (even more PS3s and Xbox 360s will be in homes by then). This Mature-rated franchise, like Halo, needs only to ship to attract its legions of fans. Seeing what next gen adds to the virtual New York City setting will definitely be worth the extra wait, especially with no load screens and exclusive downloadable missions on 360.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl--With online gameplay and a huge cast of characters including Mario, Link, Solid Snake, Sonic the Hedgehog and Donkey Kong, this is a must-have family fighter for anyone who owns a Wii. Motion-sensor controls ensure a good workout while playfully pummeling opponents.

Gran Turismo 5: Prologue--I played this at SEMA in Vegas not long ago and the HD gameplay looks photo-realistic. With each...

Metal Gear Solid 4 Coming to Xbox 360

400°
365w ago - Metal Gear Solid 4 is coming to the Xbox 360. This is not a rumor. This is straight from a Konami distribution representative's mouth. The game is already in production and has been since early 2007. Complete details after the jump:

No, the rep will not be named, but this is pretty concrete. Speaking to a Konami rep at an undisclosed distribution meeting, I was told, after a lot of nagging, that yes indeed MGS was in development for the 360. The rep stated that Metal Gear Solid will be released for the Xbox 360 between 12 to 14 months after the PS3 version hits shelves. This is not a rumor.

I contacted Microsoft's own John Porcaro via email shortly after I spoke to the Konami rep to see if I could get anything from Microsoft's public relations team. Below is the response I received. Needless to say it's the most I've ever gotten out of MS PR team member.

You can call this a rumor, as the news may be hard to swallow for many who have read the constant denials from Konami, but this is straight from a Konami distribution rep's mouth. And I have never gotten a response like this from Microsoft before. To write that much, I can't help but think Porcaro had no idea what to say. The fact that he brings up "leaking information" has us a little worried, but again, we're not naming any...

Psyclone Wii Recharge Stations Break Wii-Motes

50°
365w ago - Complaints have started to hit the internet en mass regarding the Psyclone Wii-Mote charger. Claims range from the unit simply not working, to reports of the remote actually melting onto the charger. Amazon.com's review page runs rampant with warnings regarding the battery charger; out of 27 reviews, 25 of them ended up being negative. Psyclone chargers can be found at most major retailers ranging from Target to Circuit City.

After looking at the product description on Psyclone Essentials' website, we noticed a very lengthy warning regarding their Recharge Station:

WARNING - Rechargeable batteries left unattended in the recharge unit for an extended period of time may cause the batteries and/or unit to overheat. If the Wii (TM) remote doesn't charge properly or begins to heat up, please stop the charge process and contact our customer service line to prevent further damage. If you feel that your batteries are heating up, please do not use those batteries any more. We are happy to help you and replace your product: Psyclone Customer Service #1-800-315-0795.

How many times have you left your cell phone or iPod on a charger all night? You simply don't expect that the charger will keep charging after it's finished, it should go without saying. So instead of owning up to the problem and...
