Halo 4 already in development?

364w ago - Speaking with Bungie at an exclusive Microsoft event this month we were informed that there was no rest for the wicked for the team as they were already beavering away at the next Halo game in the franchise.

When questioned whether the game would be a prequel, Bungie remained tight lipped as always but we have a hunch that the game might actually be Halo - The Movie Game (insert movie title prefix here). Either way, it's early days considering many are still tackling the single player of Halo 3. With huge sales across the globe for the series, there's no doubt that gamers are in store for more fighting whatever the guise may be.

$399 40GB PS3 To Be Released On Oct 30th

364w ago - We're sure you've all heard the rumor of the $399 PS3 its been going around the web for awhile now lately but even way back in July predicted by a Microsoft employee. Rumors have pegged an official announcement in October. So doing a little searching and making a few calls and putting all the information together Real Deal Gaming has come up with a well informed/unconfirmed/educated guess of when this rumored $399 PS3 would finally hit store shelves. Read on for the evidence.

What we are going to do is show you some of the evidence that you can see with your own eyes so you can put the pieces of the puzzle together yourself. Our first piece of evidence is located HERE where you can see the release date for Spider-man 3 on Blu-ray is listed as Oct. 30th. One of the rumors around the net is that Sony will have the new 40GB released with a special Spider-man 3 bundle. This makes a lot of sense since Spider-man 3 is #15 on the list of highest grossing movies of all time and will sell very well once released on dvd and exclusively on Blu-ray. This move coupled with a lower priced PS3 and some heavy marketing and advertising would surely move quite a bit of PS3 consoles.

The next piece of evidence is located HERE...

PSU attends Disney's Magical Blu-ray Tour

364w ago - PSU.com has recently had the chance to venture to Seattle, Washington and attend Disney's Magical Blu-ray Tour, and we are back to tell you of our adventures.

Disney has been touring the United States with the help of Panasonic, and other companies such as Monster Cables, and Sony. There are several stops in major cities across the US, in which a Blu-ray demonstration booth is set up. This booth is loaded with several of Panasonics flat screen HDTV's each hooked up to a Blu-ray player. We spotted two PlayStation 3 consoles hooked up in addition to several Panasonic players.

The tour's target audience is families, with a strong promotion of family friendly titles such as Cars, Ratatouille, and Pirates of the Caribbean being displayed. The tour is not just for children though, a spoken presentation with video integration gives a brief history describing Disney's strive to stay on top of the technology and dedication to entertainment is actually quite entertaining and informative. It is a great way to show the benefits of Blu-ray to people who do not know. However, anyone who already owns Blu-ray will not likely benefit as much from this presentation.

Presentations aside, the displays they have set up are very nice to say the least. Shown at our stop were looping videos promoting Blu-ray...

Sega demand stronger PS3 sales

364w ago - Sega are once again pushing console makers to drive sales of next-gen systems higher, having in the past singled out the limited installed base of the PlayStation 3 as a reason why development of new games remained risky.

Speaking to industry website MCV, Sega America COO Simon Jeffrey said he thought a PS3 price-cut would prompt higher sales, as he urged platform holders to push sales as quickly as possible. The "next year to two years will be a profit margin struggle," he said, adding that he wants to see "next-generation consoles in as many homes as possible, as fast as possible".

"All our research shows us that millions and millions of gamers are just waiting for the PS3 price threshold to reach a certain level before they buy," Jeffrey added, comparing the price between the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Sony have avoided all talk of a price-cut, despite rumours that one could surface at the Tokyo Game Show. Instead, the console maker appears to be concentrating on their games line-up in the first instance.
