Perfect Dark Zero Sequel April 11, 2007

Posted by dpcough in Rumors.

Remember Perfect Dark Zero when the Xbox 360 launched? It was the prequel to Perfect Dark, some people didn’t like the game and thought it didn’t live up to expectations. I enjoyed the game a lot and still play it today. Back in January 2007 a new book was released called Perfect Dark: Second Front to go along with the Perfect Dark videogames and continue the story. Well here is something from the May 2007 issue of OXM in the Rumor Mole Section:

The Mole’s pals in the book industry have tipped us off to a sequel to Perfect Dark Zero by way of a press release announcing the next novel in the paperback series that also mentions a follow-up to the game…

Would you purchase the sequel by Rare? I know I will, Perfect Dark Zero was a great game. Or this game could just get ignored because it isn’t Halo. So here’s a tip Rare on developing the game: have party matchmaking in it and people will like it more.

Today Microsoft sent an e-mail out to its next round of MVP Invites. I happened to get one and in it I learned about a few new games. So let me lose my MVP Status as I tell you the awesome titles I learned about.

Gears of War 2 was listed as me being able to play soon, Halo 3 I get to fly to Redmond next week to play it even though I probably just lost that, and I get 2 Free Xbox 360 Elites but I have to give one away, and the Xbox 360 will be discontinued later this year.

April Fools Prank or Truth? April 1, 2007

Happy April Fools Day, sites may be pulling pranks today and tommorow. Most of them you can tell but this one I’m not sure if it is or if it isn’t. VG Resource Center is reporting that in an e-mail from a Konami rep they gave details that MGS4 will appear on Xbox 360 and PC. They also gave more details saying it’d be announced at E3 and it will come out six months after the PS3 version. Take it as you will, it may be an April Fool’s Joke, or it may not. It’d be nice if it was true.

“Yes, in fact, we are working on putting Metal Gear Solid 4 on the Xbox 360 and PC, which should both come out roughly 6 months after the PS3 release. However, we’ve been working with Microsoft so the 360 and PC versions will both take advantage of Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live, with such features as achievements and the ability for 360 and PC owners to play against each other in multiplayer.

I’d love to give you some more details, but this is already pushing it. We are making the big announcement July 11th at this year’s E3, so you’ll just have to wait until then. Sorry!”


New Gears Maps March 6, 2007

Posted by dpcough in GDC 07, Rumors.

A rumor has started about three new Gears of War maps and weapons. I’m a bit puzzled by weapons but it will be nice with a few more weapons and maps. I’m not sure if these are true but the trusty Rumor Finder of Live Gamer (or a hoax by Elite Gunner IV) says they are so let’s wait and see if they are announced at GDC this week.

UPDATE Xbox 360 Fanboy did some more searching and found out that a rumor from EGM states that maps and some other downloadable content would be released. There are three maps and three weapons below, something tells me that Elite Gunner IV wasn’t lying. And also the achievements will be changed so you can earn them in player matches also, hopefully that does happen because ranked matches can’t be played with friends.


1. Flamethrower (Confirmed)
2. Plasma Canon (Confirmed)
3. Dual wielded Uzi (In development)


1. Locust Cavern (Night)(Confirmed)
2. Locust Cavern (Day)(Confirmed)
3. Suburbs of Sera (Confirmed)

Coming March 12, 2007

Capcom and Microsoft January 13, 2007

Everyone keeps saying Microsoft is gonna buy Capcom and rumors are everywhere. According to Capcom rumors started three years ago and have restarted with Xbox 360 success and a Microsoft purchase is not going to happen. That’s what they say, it’s possible it could happen but most likely it will never happen. *sigh it would’ve gotten one million more 360s sold in Japan and made it more mainstream – see posting below.*


MGS4 Rumors: My Thoughts December 18, 2006

Posted by dpcough in Rumors.

Over the past few days MGS4 Rumors have been everywhere. A representativeĀ from Konami has know responded saying it is a PS3 exclusive. But it is time to face the reality, it is not a PS3 exclusive – it will be but for a time period if at all. PS3 by my estimates (assuming about 5 Million PS3sĀ out next year) there will definetly not be enough PS3s out there for Konami to profit enough, they’d lose money.

So EGM, Noooz, and just about every other media outlet has stated MGS4 is headed to Xbox 360 at some point. Noooz is run by a former Sony employee who stated back in May Assassain’s Creed would be on Xbox 360 also months in advance of other columns. It isn’t wheter it is coming on to Xbox 360, it is becoming a matter of when it will hit Xbox 360, we can be sure it will because Xbox 360 will have (by the time of the release) about an installed base of 15 Million, a fantastic base to make significant profits. 360 Owners flock to great games (Gears of War 2 Million in a Month with Viva Pinata picking up steam slowly but surely and most 360 titles in top tens.)

Here is the Live Gamer Verdict – MGS4 will come to Xbox 360, Kojima himself said it is technically possible. So now it is a matter of when and how soon Konami will make the jump to Microsoft’s Xbox 360.
