307w ago - Capcom has confirmed that the demo of Devil May Cry 4 will hit X-Box Live and the PlayStation Network this Thursday. It should be on Xbox Live at 2am PST and between 2 and 3pm PST on the PlayStation Network should you care for the finer time details.
To quote: That's right kids, you heard it here first: The Devil May Cry 4 demo you've heard about will be up on XBox Live and PlayStation Network this Thursday, January 24, 2008. We're told to expect it up on XBox Live at 2am PST, and between 2 and 3pm PST on PlayStation Network.
Upside: this demo is actually fun.
Downside: While there will be plenty of devil-bringification and even a pretty sweet boss battle against this guy (boss battles are definitely a major highlight of the full game), it is just a demo, and only scratches the surface of the DMC4 fun. Even if I weren't shilling shamelessly for Capcom, I'd still have to say this is probably the best Devil May Cry ever.
Check it out Thursday, and read on for more details about the demo, and of course pick up the full game, available February 5th.
The demo introduces gamers to the gothic-inspired supernatural world of Devil May Cry 4, new protagonist Nero and the awesome power of his Devil Bringer. The demo consists of a sampling of sections from the full...
308w ago - You've gotta hand it to the folks at Capcom, they've done gone and gotten us excited about Bionic Commando again. No, not the big-budget remake featuring Nathan (née Radd) Spencer (we're still not sold on that one), we're talking about the 2D remake bound for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, revealed today by IGN to be Bionic Commando Rearmed.
Just tossing an HD upgrade of the game onto either service wouldn't have piqued our interest quite the same way this reimagining has. Terrorists in this Bionic Commando?
Nope, Hitler Master D and the Badds are back. Fancy three-dee graphics? Well, yes, but with that same old 2D gameplay you remember. Check out the video to watch Radd do his swing-thing in motion.

309w ago - We caught up with John Koller, Senior Product Manager for the PSP at Sony's CES booth this week, to get a quick update on the company's portable plans.
When asked about the success of the recently launched PC version of the PlayStation Store that allows those without a PlayStation 3 to download games, trailers and more to their PSPs, Koller told us that while it was a bit too early for accurate numbers, the company is expecting big things from the service.
"We have an opportunity to bring bite-size experiences to the system, ten minute, pick up and play content that can be downloaded from the store," Koller told us, part of an effort to expand the PSP's demographic.
In addition to those short-session downloadable games, plans for more legacy PSP titles are planned. Koller said the company will be re-releasing older PlayStation Portable titles as downloads, ones that "retailers aren't interested in carrying at this stage, games that we hear a lot of demand from PSP owners–titles like Wipeout, Twisted Metal–gamers who say 'I want to play this' but can't find it at retail anymore."
Speaking of retail, Koller confirmed that SCEA will be publishing more UMD movies and at a reduced price point. "We definitely understand that releasing a '70s era romantic comedy at $29.99...
