Rod Fergesson on Gears 2 Online Problems and Imminent Patch

50°
310w ago - Rod Fergesson, the Senior Producer from Gears of War 2 has outlined on the official forums (linked above) the problems with their online matchmaking service and acknowledges that and patch will be released in the near future to counter the issues.

To quote: We're aware that some folks are experiencing longer-than-ideal wait times while using the skill-based Public matchmaking in Gears 2 multiplayer.

We're working on some solutions but it's a complicated issue as there isn't any one problem; it's a combination of factors. Clearly, scale is one of them as we've had millions of successful matches played online so far, however a small percentage of players are having issues, which is unacceptable.

We're working closely with Microsoft to address the matchmaking issues, I promise you that it is our #1 priority, and we hope to have an update soon.

In the meantime, I would like to suggest some workarounds:

If you're experiencing long delays (longer than 2 minutes) or you're seeing your matchmaking search restarting over and over again, please try a different playlist as that indicates a possible population issue with the currently selected one.

The problem seems to be heightened for parties of 1 and parties of 4 so please try to invite at least one friend...

311w ago - The Videogamesplus Team has tested Gears of War 2 and Gears of War 2: Limited Edition and confirmed that they are both region free.

However, the bonus disc that comes with the Limited Edition isn't region-free for those wondering.

Also, it turns out that Tom Clancy's EndWar is also region-free!

Finally, it has been confirmed that Rock Band Track Pack Vol 3: AC/DC LIVE - 360 (Preorder) is NOT region free.
 

Sears Ad Reveals Special Edition Ice Blue And Mario Red DS Lite

50°
313w ago - It appears as if GottaDeal.com (linked above) has done it again, sleuthing out a "Doorbuster: Friday 5AM to Noon Only" Sears Black Friday flyer promoting two new Nintendo DS bundles.

According to the listing, Sears will be offering two new DS bundles as follows: One bundle includes an Ice Blue DS, a similarly colored case, and a copy of the original Brain Age. The other packs a Mario Red DS emblazoned with the Italian plumber's iconic "M" and a copy of New Super Mario Bros.

Nintendo had not responded to requests for comment concerning the bundles as of press time. It should be noted that after the metallic rose DS's special-edition run in November, Nintendo opted to add the hue to its burgeoning rainbow of standard-edition SKUs by the following May.

The Sears flyer lists the bundles as $149.99 each.
 

Gears Of War 2 LE, LittleBigPlanet and Other Titles Cheap!

50°
315w ago - I like getting my video games cheaper. Especially when I don't have to wait for three months till everyone else doesn't care about the game.

It looks like ToysRUs is trying to get an upper hand on pre-orders this year with Gears of War 2. The limited edition is listed on the site for $59.99 instead of the regular $69.99 found at many other retailers.

If you do add the shipping costs to the order, and the possibility of the retailer receiving the game late then you may have a problem, but considering the site is selling it for 59.99 I don't see why they wouldn't sell it for 10 dollars less at their stores which would eliminate the shipping problem.

On the other hand, Amazon Canada has been slashing off $5-6 price tags on many upcoming games such as LittleBigPlanet, Dead Space, and Fallout 3. Even though the $5 dollar difference doesn't seem like a big deal, you have to realize that these products are available for free shipping meaning in this scenario you actually save money....
