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."
 

Hybrid Blu-ray Movie And Game Discs Planned for the PS3

Hybrid Blu-ray Movie And Game Discs Planned for the PS3 350°
316w ago - Sony's John Koller has confirmed that hybrid Blu-ray discs that contain both a PS3 game and movie are on the cards.

Koller noted there are a lot of developers who say they have a game based on a particular movie and would love to fit them together.

Apparently, we should see these hybrid discs coming out this year... to quote:

The details of the hybrid PS3 game/movie product are still being finalized, but the idea is that a PS3 videogame disc would also provide access to an entire feature film.

Plus, consumers would be able to transfer the film for view on the PlayStation Portable, similar to the way Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's digital copies can be transferred to the PSP.

"We are actively pushing, and the way that we see the future is that the movie and the game are placed on the same disc," said John Koller, director of hardware marketing for the PS3.

"There are a lot of developers who say, we have this game based on a movie, wouldn't it be great to marry these concepts? We will definitely see this stuff this year."

NYCC 09: Ghostbusters: The Video Game PS3 Progress Report

NYCC 09: Ghostbusters: The Video Game PS3 Progress Report 50°
316w ago - I'm following Ghostbusters: The Video Game closer than any human being should be and that I'm getting pretty good at spotting even the tiniest of changes.

Let's take today's New York Comic-Con demo as an example. I was handed the controller, the demo started up, and I immediately identified the level as one I wrote a great deal about on April 28, 2008.

This is the one where Ray and the recruit are battling through an architect's office, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man shows up, and the boys duke it out with some pesky poltergeists on the roof. Good stuff, but something I've already seen.

However, it was immediately noticeable that the game looked better. Since Terminal Reality began showing off Ghostbusters, there have been some aliasing issues with the proton pack and new recruit's head - oftentimes it looks shimmery like a mosaic. Today, things looked markedly smoother and more realistic.

Now, this level makes use of the PKE Meter quite a bit, so when I whipped it out and the game dropped into first-person mode, I was surprised to find an overhauled point of view. Gone is the clear-goggle setup that basically spotted spectral trails out of thin air; in its place is a binocular-looking setup with a green tint and crosshairs...
 

XBox 360 Games We Expect Microsoft to Announce This Year

XBox 360 Games We Expect Microsoft to Announce This Year 200°
316w ago - 2009 is well upon us, it has really become unofficial tradition at Microsoft to announce a line up in the year it will be released at times teasing something for future years.

Here are a few titles we believe may receive some sort of recognition from Microsoft this year:

Perfect Dark 2

The last anyone saw of Perfect Dark was in 2005 with the release of Xbox 360 launch title Perfect Dark Zero. The game had sold well over 1 million copies and to this day still enjoys a dedicated online community despite the release of many competing titles over the years.

Rare was able to successfully create a online multiplayer experience which few have delivered, the ability for 32 players to battle it out in large maps without dedicated servers is a rarity, surprisingly a full house would generate very little lag, only in the most extreme cases would lag become a issue.

Perfect Dark Zero was a financial success for Microsoft showing the world Perfect Dark is still a viable franchise. Upon release many also called the Perfect Dark series the new "Halo" series for Microsoft. This is also one that was rumored in the past, even one we speculated Rare was working on, despite the Halo franchise making a return in 2009; we still expect a 2009 announcement and release.
