Rock Band boosts track sales; song price to increase by end of month 50°
January 20, 2008 // 12:43 am - It's another success for the music game genre as Harmonix sells more than 2.5 million downloadable songs from their hit game, Rock Band. This success reminds us of the time when digital music sales were also boosted thanks to Guitar Hero III.

According to Harmonix and MTV Games, the best selling tracks from Rock Band (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) are from the Metallica Pack, which features the original versions of "Ride the Lightning", "Blackened," and "And Justice for All."

Other hit downloads include tracks from The Police, Queens of the Stone Age, David Bowie and Black...

Blu-Ray crushing rival DVD format in Japan: study 50°
January 19, 2008 // 3:36 pm - TOKYO (AFP) - Next-generation DVDs are catching on with Japanese consumers, with sales picking up sharply at the end of 2007 and the Blu-Ray format blowing away the rival HD-DVD platform, new figures show.

In a replay of the VHS-Betamax battle in video cassette tapes in the late 1970s, two different DVD formats are hitting the market offering cinematic quality images and interactive entertainment -- but at a significantly higher price than traditional DVDs.

A major study of 2,300 electronic stores across Japan found that consumers were increasingly buying the next-generation...

Alone in the Dark for PS3 50°
January 19, 2008 // 3:25 pm - When it comes to cutting edge trouser-spoilers, Resident Evil is still the daddy. Continually bending the rules of survival horror, the fourth game in the series was not only one of the best games on PS2, but probably one of the best games ever made.

And yet... while they could certainly lay claim to propelling horror gaming forward with arse-clenching frightfests like RE Nemesis, Capcom can't claim to have invented the genre. That honour goes to Alone in the Dark, originally developed by Infogrames, which squeaked out in impressively spooksome form as a PC game - and then 3DO...

Best Reasons PS3 Is Going to Kick Butt in '08 800°
January 19, 2008 // 3:22 pm - The 360 blew it's load last year and now it's the Playstation 3's turn. Only a few weeks into the new year and the PS3 has quickly become THE system for gamers to own. A couple of us here at the Pail sat down and figured out how and why the PS3 is going to kick ass in 2008.

Blu-ray Movies

You could say that it's all Warner's fault. With their announcement of going exclusively to Blu-ray, Paramount and Universal started shifting in their chairs. Now the two companies are using their escape clause to leave HD-DVD behind; and all hope for HD-DVD with them. Blu-ray is...

Report: PS3 comback, shallow Wii, tepid portables in '08 50°
January 17, 2008 // 10:16 pm - According to IGN GamerMetrics, which monitors the traffic patterns of some 15 million hardcore gamers, the PlayStation 3 is "poised to make a run" in 2008 thanks to strong interest in Metal Gear Solid 4, Killzone 2, Devil May Cry 4, and LittleBigPlanet, three of which are exclusive.

"The combined interest in upcoming PlayStation 3 software pulled the PS3 even with the Xbox 360," reads the report, "which suggests that Sony could be on the verge of its long awaited comeback."

With regards to Nintendo, the stat-tracking ninjas at GamerMetrics predict another banner year for...

Turok Demo Impressions 50°
January 17, 2008 // 10:16 pm - If you've just been aching to get your hands on Propaganda Game's upcoming Turok title, the wait is finally over. Even though the game doesn't ship until February 5th, a demo of the game is available in the latest issue of the Official Xbox Magazine.

This game is not necessarily a sequel but rather a reboot of a franchise that was desperately in need of some fresh innovation, and hopefully Propaganda games will end up delivering.

In the game you play as Joseph Turok, a member of the FNG military unit that has been sent to another planet in search of a war criminal....

Sony Responds To December NPD Sales, Seems Pleased 50°
January 17, 2008 // 10:06 pm - Sony isn't going to let a sales drubbing from the Wii and Xbox 360 this past December get it down. The company did quite alright, by its own accord and thinks the best is yet to come, so says its NPD Group sales response.

Sony points out PlayStation total hardware revenue was $714 million for the month, which is not pocket change, by any means and a figure that surpasses both Nintendo and Microsoft's hardware revenue.

Guitar Hero games are still selling better on the PlayStation 2, it says, as is Madden. We even get software info for the PlayStation 3 version of Call...

Crysis possibly heading to PS3! 400°
January 17, 2008 // 10:02 pm - Even before the PC version released, rumors of a PS3 conversion of the stunning Crysis (developed by Far Cry creators Crytek) were rife, and not far off the mark if insiders at the studio are to be believed. The game looks to be a port of the PC original plus some extra modes and features, a kind of Crysis 1.5.

Like the PC game you can expect a visual powerhouse; an open-world shooter that begins on a beautiful tropical island before things take a turn for the worse and aliens from a parallel world stake a claim on Earth.

Only the mighty Killzone 2 could possibly hold...
