Criterion: Burnout Paradise PC Demo to Include Full Game

50°
315w ago - Here's what you already know: Burnout Paradiseā„¢ The Ultimate Box will be arriving on PC in Feb 2009.

Like both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, this product combines the original Burnout Paradise with all the incredible support content we've developed so far! That means our Cagney Pack update, the Bikes Pack and the forthcoming Party Pack are all included.

Here's what you didn't know - anyone will be able to trial the game for FREE.

When the full game's released in Feb '09, we want all our PC players to be sure it runs perfectly on their system, before they commit to buying it. We also love the game and feel confident that if you try it, you'll want to sign up for more!

But there's a lot of game to show you!

In Burnout Paradise, you're free to explore a massive city, loaded with fun things to do and places to go. Pull up at any of the 120 junctions to start one of 5 event types - Burning Route, Marked Man, Stunt Run, Race and Road Rage.

See if you can find the beach, quarry, dirt track and airfield playgrounds spread through our five boroughs. The city also morphs seamlessly into an online world anytime you want to hook up with your friends and cruise around beating challenges.

So rather than restricting...
 

Nintendo Wii Homebrew Channel 1.0: Now With Less Beta out!

316w ago - Marcan writes: Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you The Homebrew Channel, version 1.0.

Okay, so it's really just another name for beta10. Getting into double-digit betas sounds kind of lame, and we don't want to sound too much like google, so we're calling it 1.0. After all, many bugfixes have come and this thing is pretty stable and feature-complete by now.

Download: Wii Homebrew Channel 1.0

As I promised, we've listened to your requests for beta10. I didn't promise we'd actually do anything about them, but at least we've taken care of some of them. Most easy additions have been added, and several bugs have been fixed. Although this release may not have USB support or themeing (boo!), things like Classic Controller and multiple-wiimote support should make your HBC experience just a bit nicer. Or at least I hope so, because I don't think we're going to be ready for another release for a while, and there's other stuff to do (25C3, anyone?).

Analyst: Gears Of War 3 is Likely to Come Out on PlayStation 3

100°
316w ago - In the gaming world exclusivities have become all but obsolete. So it should come as little surprise that analysts are stating the future of Epic's gaming giant, Gears of War, will be bright on all fronts of the console war.

Analyst Michael Pachter, who is well known throughout the gaming industry for his insight to the future of gaming, has stated "we pretty much know that Gears of War 3 is probably gonna come out on PS3."

Pachter is going off the idea that things today aren't exactly exclusive, they're only set aside for a set amount of time. If this holds true, PS3 gamers will get a chance to see just how much they've been missing.

As gamers of all three major systems, we welcome multiplatform any day. The console war is getting down to the point of 'who's system has the better technology', and steering clear of 'who has the better games'.

Either way this one ends up, Gears of War has cemented it's place in the hearts of gamers everywhere. Regardless of which system this ends up on in the future, it's sure to have one heck of an outcome and a very profitable future.
