Rumor: Ninja Gaiden 2 unmasked?

50°
345w ago - It's been nearly three and a half years since the Ninja Gaiden series made its triumphant return. Since then, the critically lauded Xbox remake was rereleased in 2005 with new content as Ninja Gaiden Black, and then graphically upgraded and further expanded for this year's PlayStation 3 port, Ninja Gaiden Sigma.

But while the resurgent adventures of shadow warrior Ryu Hayabusa have spawned an all-new DS game, Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword, many have been wondering when a true Ninja Gaiden sequel would arrive. Though he would not confirm a sequel outright, Team Ninja head Tomonobu Itagaki has declined to deny assertions in the gaming press that his shop is working on Ninja Gaiden 2.

Today, though the proof was in the pudding--blood pudding, to be more precise. An eagle-eyed poster on gaming-news bazaar/loosely controlled riot NeoGAF posted a series of screenshots he or she claimed to have taken from an official product page on the Japanese version of Xbox.com. Though the page was, unsurprisingly, quickly pulled down, the authentic-looking screenshots show a far bloodier and gorier game than the ultraviolent original.

Rumor: New 40GB PS3 at $399.99 for the holidays

345w ago - Ars Technica has their very own mole, who they say is very good at what he does. Looks like he dug up some interesting stuff on Sony's plan for the holiday season. The rumor is as follows: the 80GB PS3 falls to $499.99, and a brand new 40GB PS3 is offered at $399.99.

Analysts have predicted the 80GB price drop before. As for this 40GB model, we've had a few tip offs that it might be in the works. In addition, the mole adds that Spider-Man 3 Blu-ray may be packed in with one or both of the bundles, and the PS2 drops to $99.99. Of course, these are merely rumors, so don't hold your breath while waiting for lower priced PS3s. We expect to find out more at Tokyo Game Show.

Rumor - PS3 HD/USB loader to be released on 9th September

50°
346w ago - There is a video floating around the net of a possible PS3 loader loading from the OtherOS function and works on latest firmware. Apparently, the team haven't released it yet as it has issues with the latest games that require >1.7 firmware.

Is it real? Who knows. No doubt the video will be picked to bits until the release date.

I for one, hope it turns out to be real.
