Around 50 LBP Levels taking about 12 Hours to Complete Estimated

50°
308w ago - Producer Pete Smith has confirmed LittleBigPlanet will feature around 50 levels on the disc. The game will feature an interlinking story so it will not just be a random selection of levels, although the first half of the game is just a big tutorial which introduces you to all the gameplay mechanics of the game.

Apparently, it can be completed in as little as 12 hours...

To quote:

How many levels will be on the disc?

Around 50-ish. There'll be an interlinking story, too, so it's not just a random selection of levels. About the first half of the game is one long tutorial, introducing you to all the gameplay mechanics in the game.

Will there be any levels that require the Create mode to get to the end?

No, not to beat the level. Though there are levels where using the create mode will allow you to access hidden areas. The Create mode will have its own set of tutorials to get you used to it.
 

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Reviews Start to Come Out

100°
308w ago - The first couple of review scores for Star Wars: the Force Unleashed have made their way onto the Interwebs thanks to GameRankings.com and various forums.

The Official Xbox Magazine gave a score of a 7.5/10, calling it an "Entertaining story," but "Is less polished than the Jedia Knight game."

The US version of the Official PlayStation Magazine gave a little lower score at 3.5/5. At this time, we couldn't find an article for OPM.

The Nintendo Power review also gave it a 7.5/10 saying, "You can hack and slash with your lightsaber, which isn't as satisfying as I'd hoped." Isn't that the only reason why we would buy that version?

Although the scores are more positive than negative, it is disappointing to see such an average score from a game we are excited to play. We still feel the game will have an unbelievable story-line and it could be worth purchasing just for that, even if the gameplay is not up to par as some others.
 

Everything you need to know about the next XBox

308w ago - Will Microsoft launch its next-gen Xbox in 2011? There have been a couple of articles recently that have speculated on just that. We look at whether the 'Xbox 720' will feature a return to Intel chips, the inclusion of a Blu-ray drive, and more storage than you can ever fill.

A PlayStation 4 and potential 'Xbox 720' could arrive as early as 2011, estimates Crytek president and CEO Cevat Yerli. Industry analyst Colin Sebastian agrees, suggesting that "the general consensus amongst industry professionals is that a new generation of home consoles will arrive on the market in 2011 or 2012."

Terabyte storage for the Xbox 720?

We've already speculated about what Microsoft might be planning for its third Xbox - 16 or 32 processing cores (including onboard graphics), 8GB of DDR memory, broadband connectivity and a hard disk that delivers terabytes rather than gigabytes of storage space.

More storage is a given - Microsoft has recently launched the 60GB Xbox 360 Pro, while Sony has rolled out a 160GB PlayStation 3. Both consoles are trying to sell themselves as digital hubs and any future Xbox is going to need a huge amount of space to store downloadable movies and TV shows, demos and Live Arcade games. A 60GB hard drive is nowhere near big enough.

Konami hands out two more MGS4 codes, one download

50°
308w ago - Here are some more Metal Gear Solid 4 codes for all of you who want "free" stuff. It's technically free because you don't have to exert any effort in getting them, but it's all content already on the disc, which means you already paid for it. Go figure.

Anyway, these items are not as great as last week's, but we're sure you'll enjoy them just the same.

- skynytktjp - Scanning Plug S.
- mgo2play - Subsistence Action iPod Music

Just like last week, there's another item for download in addition to the codes. "Metal Camo" is available which causes Life and Psyche gauges to decrease at half the normal rate.

Your Camo Index will also go down by 10 percent. You can grab all three items by accessing the "Extras" menu.
