Criterion Games are still at it, a year later and the game is still getting updates; I hope developers are watching what there doing. This week on Feb 19th Criterion Games will be releasing there Legendary Cars pack on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
There was no info on the price but I’m pretty sure we could say that this is going to be $9.99, we will see.
“Calm please, calm. Man you guys get angry quickly.
Yes, I’m working on getting approvals to mention all the new things coming and planned, or as many of them as I can. Theres an awful lot of it and I cant just assume the teams and businesses involved are happy for me to “out them” yet.
A lot more after the break
Joystiq writes: “Hideo Kojima will sneak into the 2009 Game Developers Conference this year and get his keynote on, according to Gamasutra. It’ll be the designer’s first presentation at the event, with his debut titled “Solid Game Design: Making the ‘Impossible’ Possible.”
GDC Event Director Meggan Scavio notes that the group has asked Kojima to keynote almost every year “for as long as [she] can remember.” She’s curious to see how the “revered and elusive” creator will inspire attendees. The presentation is scheduled for an hour, but given the designer’s inability to edit, don’t be surprised if it lasts 8 hours, with two 90-minute cutscenes and a couple of codec conversations included.”
I am very interested to see how he does this presentation. I have also heard “RUMORS” that his team may unveil something before the show. This is a rumor right now but we will have the news as it happens so keep checking back.

More after the break

Gears of War. Fable. Forza. Mass Effect. Banjo-Kazooie. Perhaps, even Halo? There’s a fine line observed by every PS3 fan, myself included, over what games deserve to remain on the 360 and which ones would be best suited for multi-platform support. Developer desires, budget and profit constraints and moreover, the rights to the intellectual properties often contribute to what stays exclusive. But the #1 360 exclusive that should be and could be on the PS3 - which returns a staggering 1,260,000 million links in regards to its exclusivity?
If you update the game today to version 1.6, you’ll experience a white screen issue relating to the pages we’ve created for the in-game browser. The text will read “Error. FW-1 at fefw01_ixe-lhr: Failed to connect to the WWW server”.
This is currently timing out due to overwhelming demand.
On PS3, hit triangle and then “EXIT”, then choose “Yes” to “return to the game screen” and continue playing Burnout. On PC, click the button prompt in the bottom right of the screen to exit and continue playin.

World at War is also introducing two brand new game types into its playlist rotation: Team Tactical and Mercenary TDM. Team Tactical is a 4v4 playlist that pits two teams up against each other in random objective scenarios, while Mercenary TDM does not allow for parties in favor of random team match-ups.
New playlists have gone live today for both Xbox 360 and PS3 players. The Double-XP event will run from today, January 30, until February 1.
Killzone 2 has long been the center of a lot of attention by hardcore PS3 fans for it’s ultra-realistic graphics and deep multi-player gameplay. However, the title’s popularity even among the masses is becoming increasingly more obvious.
