King of Fighters XII Getting DLC, Console-specific Modes

50°
302w ago - It looks like SNK is already preparing to outfit King of Fighters XII with DLC.

To quote: The upcoming fighting game will have additional purchased content available on the Xbox Live Marketplace (as uncovered by Siliconera) and, presumably, on PSN as well.

What that content is exactly, we don't know just yet; however, we assume this means more costumes and game modes a la Street Fighter IV. Maybe it means more characters ... like all the ones missing from the roster screen (below).

In addition to DLC, KoF XII has console-specific online modes. The PS3 version features a "Clan" mode which is not found on the 360 version (check out the image above); however, the 360 version has a "Ranked Match" option while the PS3 version does not. Hmm ... you don't think SNK would charge for these modes as paid DLC now, would it?
 

Report: Capcom is Working on More PS3 Than XBox 360 Games

250°
302w ago - In a follow-up to Capcom's latest fiscal reports, they've released a chart showing how many games they've released last year as well as how many they'll be releasing this year and next.

The numbers predict that they'll be releasing fifteen PlayStation 3 games this year and twelve Xbox 360 games this year. Following up in 2010, Capcom will be releasing thirteen PlayStation 3 games and twelve Xbox 360 games.

This is odd, considering Capcom is a multiplatform developer. What could these extra PlayStation 3 games be?

Perhaps one of them is of the two new titles to be announced at E3 2009? Mega Man Legends 3, maybe (hopefully)?

We'll have to wait and see... feel free to speculate below.
 

EA is Working on the Best FPS Ever, New Medal of Honor Update?

100°
303w ago - In late 2007, Electronic Arts Los Angeles took a crack at returning its Command & Conquer franchise to the first-person shooter genre with Tiberium.

Ultimately, however, the project proved to be a doomed venture, with EA suspending work on the game less thab a year later because it was "not on track to meet the high-quality standards set by the team and by the EA Games Label," according to a company representative.

Now, it appears as if EALA isn't going to let one canceled game stand in the way of its FPS ambitions. In a new job posting for an art director, the developer revealed that it is at work on "a brand new first-person shooter project in the very beginning stages of development."

The job requisition gave no indication as to which themes would be incorporated into the project, saying only that it will be "the best project we've ever worked on."

EALA is perhaps best known for its World War II-themed Medal of Honor shooters, a franchise that has been dormant since 2007's Medal of Honor: Airborne and Medal of Honor Heroes 2. Of note, in an interview in August 2008, EA Games president Frank Gibeau confirmed that the publisher had future plans for the franchise, saying, "You'll hear more about Medal of Honor in the future. I can guarantee you that."

Rumor: Konami Working on an Exclusive XBox 360 Title

100°
303w ago - Norihiko Hibino's company Web site hints at a new Konami title in development exclusively for the Xbox 360.

Listed in GEN Impact's 2009 projects, the untitled Konami game is said to have earnt Hibino-san's talent for its music and sound effects.

Nonetheless, unlike other titles on the website, the game only lists Japan as its release country, so it might not be that interesting to us Westerners.

"Konami 'New Title' (Xbox 360, Japan) - Music, Sound Effects," the Web site reads.

Moreover, the company is listed as producing music for SEGA's Bayonetta, but only posts the PlayStation 3 as the game's platform; we know the climax action game will release simultaneously on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Therefore, this game from Konami could very well be in development for other platforms, though it might just be an Xbox 360 re-release/remake of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots... Nah.
 

Speculation: Is Rockstar Still Working on the PS3 Exclusive?

100°
303w ago - In June 2007, director of third party relations at Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) Michael Shorrock revealed on the Official PlayStation Blog that Sony and Rockstar had come to an agreement on developing a new PS3 exclusive.

To quote: "As part of our long standing relationship with Rockstar, and the incredible success for both companies with the cultural icon that is Grand Theft Auto, we've agreed to the PlayStation exclusive rights of the next great franchise from the Rockstar studios," Shorrock wrote.

"Rockstar really wanted to make a game that you can truly only do on PS3, harnessing the power of CELL and Blu-ray disc and this deal lets them do just that...This is really a win-win situation for both companies."

President and CEO of SCEA Jack Tretton further discussed the new agreement with Rockstar on Spike TV's Game Head show with Geoff Keighley, confirming that the unnamed project was not L.A. Noire and that Sony was able to release Take-Two from GTA IV exclusivity in exchange for acquiring the rights to the publisher's next franchise.

"What we're really excited about is the next great franchise from Take-Two and in exchange for letting them out of that exclusive (Grand Theft Auto IV), we've got the rights to the next great franchise from Take-Two."
