Hideo Kojima is a busy developer lately.  In addition to Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on the PlayStation Portable, the architect of Metal Gear Solid is involved in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.  Some recent Twitter updates picked up by Andria Sang and Gamespot indicate that Kojima has another project in the planning phase.

While details are scarce, Kojima says that “The project plan still hasn’t reached a detailed level, but everything is advancing simultaneously in my head. Title, game design, story, characters, setting research, the mech that appear, casting, graphic direction, sound, beginning and ending, the major story sequences. It comes together naturally in my head.”

If you didn’t see this coming, then you are clearly blind, deaf, and dumb. During the Final Fantasy XIII launch party, Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada revealed through an interview that Squeenix will “explore the possibility” of remaking the PSOne classic. Nothing is set in stone, as Wada reiterated that they have to decide “whether or not we’re going to do it, if we’re going to do it, and the platform.”

Though it may not be the ideal answer that us FFVII fanatics have been looking for, it’s definitely a step in the right direction. Read more… »

According to Ars Technica, via an underground source, Microsoft is planning to announce two new Xbox 360 bundle packs by midnight tonight.  The two bundles in question are set to release alongside both Splinter Cell: Conviction and Final Fantasy XIII, setting their street dates for March 9th and April 13th, respectively.

These two bundles will apparently be similar in nature to the Modern Warfare 2 bundle released earlier in the fall, in that they will come packed with a sizable 250 gig hard drive, as well as two wireless controllers, color coordinated with the console.  Since the Splinter Cell console will be black and the FFXIII console white, the controllers included will follow suit.

Ever since Sony created and showed off an HD, graphically updated sequence from Final Fantasy VII as a tech demo at E3 to prove just how impressive their new PS3 console was, fans have been salivating over the idea of a full-fledged remake to one of the most popular RPG’s ever created.

However, according to Square Enix’s Yoshinori Kitase in an interview with Ultimania magazine, they currently have no such plans.  In fact, many fans fail to realize just how difficult a task it would be to update FFVII, while simultaneously remaining true to the spirit of the original game.  Kitase believes that if they were to remake the game (and again, they aren’t), it would take quite some time.

While a few of us (well just one of us) drooled and boasted well on behalf of the PSPgo, the fact is the system is dreamcasting itself (Zing!) at a much faster rate too.  Sales reports have been terrible, game selection is feeble, and the price is too expensive.  I’m no financial executive, but it looks like you have a bad product on your hands.

Sources confirmed with Gamervision, that the PSPgo is going into crisis mode, and will be revamping itself with a price drop and a heavy marketing campaign.  When it’s suppose to occur is still unknown, but with the recent sales figures, consumers are expecting it very quickly. Read more… »

ESPN360_BannerAll you sports lovers out there who own Xbox 360’s better listen up.  According to a recent New York Times article, Microsoft is currently conducting “in-depth talks” with the Walt Disney Company to bring ESPN programming to the Xbox 360.

It appears this new streaming service could be very similar to ESPN360, which streams live sporting events from all over the world to your home computer.   Unfortunately the rumor is this would be a premium Xbox 360 feature which would cost an extra fee on top of the already existing gold membership fee.

fallout-new-vegas

I’m one of those people who doesn’t believe rumors leaked through the GameSpot forums.  Unfortunately, I’m also the kind of person who loves juicy rumors, especially when they are about the newest entry in the Fallout series, Fallout: New Vegas.

Well it appears that a GameSpot forum user has posted a ton of information about the new Fallout game, which will be debuted in the upcoming issue of Game Informer. I’ve compiled a complete list of the rumors, which can be viewed after the jump, but I must warn you that this all comes from a so called “trusted source” who apparently has inside connections to the magazine.  For all we know, this information could be completely false.

Last night on the Spike TV 2009 Video Game Awards, Rocksteady shocked everyone by announcing a sequel to their immensely popular Arkham Asylum.  After some intense analyzation of the world premier trailer, people have possibly figured out the game’s setting and one of it’s boss villains.

It appears that Arkham Asylum has grown, and now encompasses a huge walled-off ruined section of Gotham City.  During the trailer, the camera pans by the Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge, which could mean the long time villain plays a big role in the game.  Unfortunately no official details have been released, so take this all with a grain of salt.

Hit the jump to check out some images from the trailer and decide for yourself. Read more… »

Sony Bluetooth Headset

It appears that a Naughty Dog employee might have let slip that the next PS3 firmware update will contain the long awaited cross-game voice chat functionality.  This information comes from a Playstation.com forum post in which a user with a “Naughty Dog Dev” stamp has been quoted saying “the next PS3 firmware update is going to allow cross game chat.”

Of all the features that Sony has yet to implement on the PS3, this is probably the most requested.  The fact they haven’t added it to the system has been a point of contention amongst many PS3 and Xbox 360 fanboys.  I myself think this is the one hurdle the Playstation Network has left to leap before it can be considered on par with Xbox Live.

Do you think the PS3 needs cross-game voice chat?

prince-of-persia-1

A trademark filing has recently been spotted for a game called Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. As the last Prince of Persia was released in 2008 by Ubisoft, it makes sense for a new PoP to be on the way.

As with all other series, it’ll most likely end up on all consoles as well.

From the time of announcement until the date of confirmation people will continue to speculate on all of the song that might be contained inside the upcoming Beatles Rock Band. A lot of the early predictions have been accurate, but perhaps Game Informer will shine the light on all that has been guessed upon.

We’ve yet to see a phsyical copy of the latest issue, so it’s marked rumor for now. Needless to say, if it is correct? There will be a lot of happy fans come September 9th. Hit the jump for the rumored list and we’ll be sure and let you know when it is confirmed.

It’s been a day of riveting rumors and news for the Playstation 3. Firstly, it seems as though the 80GB model is set to be discontinued in Japan following a finding from retailer 7-Eleven, which stated that no more orders will be taken due to a “request from the manufacturer.” Then there was the unexpected $50 price cut on the 80GB Uncharted bundle. And now we have a report from RTLinfo, which reports on an impending price cut of €100 for European retailers stocking the 80GB model. Read more… »
