Take-Two Confirms Mafia 2 Release to Arrive in Q4 2010

50°
214w ago - JoyStiq's Christopher Grant has received confirmation from Take-Two Interactive that the upcoming Mafia 2 release will indeed arrive on Windows and both XBox 360 and PS3 consoles in Q4 2010.

To quote: "Earlier this month, Take-Two announced the potential movement of one of the titles planned for release in its fiscal fourth quarter, extending from August to October.

The choices were: LA Noire, Mafia 2, Max Payne 3, or Civilization V. During our demo of Mafia 2 on Wednesday, we were told the game would make its Q4 release, removing it from the list of potentially delayed titles.

If we were the betting type, we'd be looking at one of those two Rockstar titles; after all, we've seen Civilization V at this point while LA Noire and Max Payne 3 remain shrouded in mystery."

214w ago - Update: Today SCEJ has confirmed the rumor, as discovered by JustPushStart.com, along with the initial PS3 3D titles previously announced.

Just under a month ago we reported on an upcoming PS3 Firmware update that includes a 3D video output option, and today Japanese site AV Watch claim that it will arrive on June 10, 2010.

To quote: "The update, which we're assuming will coincide with the launch of the LX900 television, will also unlock 3D Blu-ray movie viewing.

You'll need a compatible set (and those glasses) to see the 3D, though."

For those curious, PS3 Devs have confirmed that Debug update 3.20 weighs in at 149 MB (156,756,437 bytes) and that 3.21 is also already making its rounds... hopefully a leak will follow, eh?

222w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has announced that the God of War III PS3 information drought is officially over, and shared some additional GoW III (rumored to be released on March 19, 2010) details and pictures today.

To quote: It's not often that buzz builds behind a news embargo, but judging by comments on the Blog, it seems a lot of you have been looking forward to hearing more about God of War III today.

I'm happy to report that with the release of these screens and impressions of the game from last month's New York preview event, you'll be seeing GoW III updates much more frequently.

Back to last months' event, we've been dying to share what we saw since we first laid eyes on this Titan-riding, boss-fighting segment of the game.

If the wait until God of War III's March release seems unbearable, I'm right there with you. We're almost there, and we have MAG, White Knight Chronicles, and Heavy Rain to tide us over until then.
