Devil May Cry 4 has "emo" hero, release date set

50°
352w ago - Capcom's press site has alerted us to some updated information regarding Devil May Cry 4 and, seeing how we're kind spirits and all, thought we'd forward the information to you. A lot of it is rehashed info, so we'll cut through that recycled garbage (oxymoron?) and deliver you the news you want to know.

Appearances by Trish, Lady, Dante, and pretty much the entire DMC cast ensemble are to be expected. Nero is described by Capcom as "cynical and prefers being a lone wolf, often labeled emo." That made us giggle a little bit. But probably the most important slice of information is a solid release date scheduled by Capcom -- a street date of February 2008 has been set. We'll have some more DMC4 news for you in a little bit, so don't worry, fans of the franchise, more news is coming.
 

White PS3 Coming To America?

50°
352w ago - This Rumor Reporter posting refers to the initial Engadget report about the CECHH01 PS3 model that landed at the FCC. The model number was noted to being very similar to the 40 GB CECHH00 model in Japan. The Engadget article suggested that the model couldn't be all too different.

From Rumor Reporter:

"Now, all of you are wondering how I came up with a white PS3 coming to the US. First of all, check out that label on the Engadget label...it's white. Now that's a huge hint. Furthermore, the white PS3 in Japan is CECHH00. This is CECHH01. Can it be? A new white 40 GB PS3 coming to the United States? Count on it."

Place this one under the extreme rumor file at the moment. More info here.
 

Epic Games Claims Mortal Kombat 8 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC?

50°
353w ago - series creator Ed Boon has stated the next game in the series will make use of, has add the tentatively titled "Mortal Kombat 8" to their upcoming games listing. According to this information, the game is being developed for Sony's Playstation 3 console as well as Microsoft's Xbox 360. However, the site also says the game is in development for the PC, a platform which the Mortal Kombat series has been absent from for a number of years. Many fans have requested a PC version of previous games to no avail, but it seems possible Midway may finally deliver.

It is important to keep in mind that while the site is owned by Epic Games, nothing is confirmed at this time. Midway officially has no comment on this matter at this time. We will be sure to keep you informed when or if this changes.

Comparing Xbox 360 and PS3

50°
353w ago - Is it time to buy a PS3? With the announcement this week that Sony will introduce a $399 model of the PlayStation 3 on Nov. 2, it's finally fair to compare the PS3 with the Xbox 360. So let's compare deals:

Xbox 360 Premium ($349)
• 20-gigabyte hard drive
• Backward compatibility for most Xbox games via downloadable software updates
• Wireless controller
• Wired headset
• DVD drive
• No Wi-Fi adapter ($99 separately)

PS3 ($399)
• 40-gigabyte hard drive
• No backward compatibility with PS2 games
• Wireless controller
• No headset
• Blu-ray drive for games and high-definition movies, as well as regular DVDs
• Built-in wireless adapter
• Includes copy of Spider-Man 3 movie on high-def Blu-ray disc

From a pure hardware standpoint, I think the PS3 is now a better deal than the Xbox 360 Premium. The larger hard drive, the built-in wireless adapter and the Blu-ray movie player are simply a phenomenal deal for a mere 50 bucks extra.

While Sony made a marketing mistake by hyping backwards compatibility when the PS3 first launched, only to kill the feature with the new unit, I suspect most gamers who buy a new console aren't actually using it to play old PS2 games. So...
 

EA says PS3/Wii/Xbox 360 will soon be obsolete, why EA's wrong

50°
353w ago - Today I came across a very, very funny article in which Gerhard Florin, a senior executive at Electronic Arts, said game consoles as a platform will soon become obsolete. This is why that will never happen.

When I say "that will never happen," I mean it will never happen unless we discover some crazy new technologies that revolutionize the way we game.

With that said, Florin had this to say regarding the future state of gaming consoles in a recent BBC piece:

We want an open, standard platform which is much easier than having five which are not compatible ... We're platform agnostic and we definitely don't want to have one platform which is a walled garden ... I am not sure how long we will have dedicated consoles - but we could be talking up to 15 years.

Consoles will never become obsolete because PC gaming is way too expensive, and traditional controllers do not work as well as their console counterparts. If you want to have a relatively good gaming experience on a PC, you have to spend about three or four times what you would spend on a console. Even worse, after maxing out your PC with all the latest and greatest tech, guess what? You have to do it all over again a year and a half later.

Consoles, on the other hand, will give you a great gaming experience for $500...
