215w ago - One of the most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of 2009 will be officially released on May 26th, 2009.
However, if you look hard enough, you may be able to find the Infamous at retail stores right now and you might be able to purchase it.
At least two different people were able to acquire a copy of Infamous more than three weeks early. They were nice enough to share their exploits on GameSpot and NeoGAF forums.
Infamous went to gold status on April 15th, so the broken street date was to be expected sooner or later. Hopefully, this will lead to Sony releasing Infamous early so impatient fans can get their hands on the long-awaited exclusive title.
The game has been getting some astonishing praise from critics, and appears like this one will be one of those great PS3 games of the year!
227w ago - After being delayed recently, Electronic Arts Inc. and Paramount Digital Entertainment today announced that The Godfather II videogame will now be available in stores on April 7th in North America and April 10th in Europe.
Press Release: EA Announces New Street Date for The Godfather II
Be the Don and Build Your Crime Family on April 7, 2009
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--"The Godfather II is taking the open-world genre in an entirely new direction by combining the furious combat of acting like a mobster, with the strategic gameplay of thinking like a Don," says Hunter Smith, Executive Producer for The Godfather II.
"As game makers, when we looked at what lies at the heart of the Godfather universe, we discovered a game focused around organized crime. The Corleones and all the other families schemed and fought to gain access and control of different territories, so that they could control the flow of money in those areas.
This underlying battle cloaked secrecy is what The Godfather II and mafia life is all about, and we wanted players to be in control as a Don and make those strategic decisions to lead their families to success."
240w ago - According to Big_T of NeoGAF Forums (linked above) he has gotten his hands on the hotly anticipated new IP from EA and has posted some pics.
To quote: "Just got the game, I don't care about the length of the game. I played the demo 4 hours
btw the installation for the game is 486MB.. when you start new game you choose between easy and normal difficulty, if you complete the story you will unlock the hard difficulty, in hard there is no Runner Vision and combat much tougher."
As mentioned yesterday, Mirror's Edge is set to officially arrive for PlayStation 3 on November 11 and XBox 360 on November 14, 2008 so it appears some retailers are selling it a day early.
One pic of the pack and PS3 disc is below, with the rest at the above link. Enjoy!
