Bolstering initial reports that Zampella and West were defecting to their former employer Electronic Arts, the filing also accuses the two of embarking "on a secret trip by private jet to Northern California, arranged by their Hollywood agent, to meet with the most senior executives of Activision's closest competitor."

Lol, this is getting intresting.

Rumour: Dante's Inferno 2 In The Works

Some job listings which indicate that a sequel is currently in the works.

The first listing, searching for a Lead Character Artist states that "Visceral Games is looking for an experienced senior Character Artist for an existing action/adventure franchise. This is a major opportunity to contribute to a bold new franchise, heavily backed by the EA Games Label."

More hints come later on in the listing where it says that the "project is the sequel to a major new IP at the award-winning Visceral Games, creators of Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno."

"The game sequel will set new quality standards and make the franchise the world-leader in the action/melee-combat genre." it concludes.

You guys should check out the online price drops at Ebgames.com

Bioshock 2 was only $25 for a few days. Now it's $40, but that's still not bad at all. That's a damn fine game. I'm still itching to play, a couple weeks after I beat it on a rent.

Insomniac Signs Deal With EA Partners For New Title.

Longtime Sony partner and Resistance and Ratchet & Clank developer, Insomniac Games, has struck a deal for a game to be published by EA Partners for a multi-platform title.

The unnamed PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 project will be the first time that the developer has put a title out on a non-Sony platform in its 16-year history. "Our goal at this point," said Insomniac founder Ted Price, "is to reach as many people as possible. We're certainly excited to bring this game to our fans on the PlayStation 3, but we also want to reach out to Xbox 360 players as well and bring the kind of experiences we've been creating for a long time to them."

An important component of Insomniac's deal with EA Partners – like Respawn before them – is that the developer will retain the rights to all the titles based on the new universe it is creating with this upcoming project. Although Price told us that the deal was for a single game, it would like to work with EAP if this first title took off and demanded more. "Our goal is to work with the best partners in the world. We also, as you can tell from our history, have a history of long relationships. So, when we find somebody we like working with, we prefer to continue working with them."

Unfortunately, Price and Insomniac aren't saying word one about the upcoming title, and Price said that although the company has been thinking about a multi-platform title for a while, not even the genre is set in stone at this point. "Our deal with EAP is about creating great content and about a great partnership. There isn't any particular genre that would be allowed or disallowed by working together."

David Cage and Quantic Dream (Indigo Prophecy/Heavy Rain) have already started to begin casting for their new game, a science fiction story. Codenamed, "Horizon". Sweet.

I already cant wait for it. haha. Let's just hope they go with American voice actors this time around.

A source told Videogaming247 that the new project will center around a twenty-something couple, and that the plot is about a "curious man raised very insularly meeting a free woman who is hesitant to exercise her freedom."

Re: Gaming news

Good news for all you guys that haven't tried Mass Effect 2. Next Tuesday Bioware will release a demo of the game along with a new DLC called Overlord.

Quote:
According to a post on the blog of Xbox front-man Major Nelson, the upcoming Overlord DLC for Mass Effect 2 will be available on Tuesday June 15th. Along with the release of the new DLC, EA will also be releasing a demo for the game to give those who haven’t tried it a chance to check it out.
When sent to investigate a Cerberus research base that’s mysteriously gone silent, Shepard arrives to find Geth overrunning the base. The sole survivor, Chief Scientist Archer, paints a dire picture: an experiment to fuse a human volunteer with a virtual intelligence created a dangerous hybrid “VI overlord”. The rampaging VI has already attacked three other Cerberus bases, controlling any technology it finds in an attempt to break free—and unleashing Geth across the planet. Unless Shepard can infiltrate the VI’s fortress and shut it down, this homicidal intelligence will beam itself-off planet and wreak havoc on other systems. The action unfolds over five new level areas, with two new achievements.

The DLC, which features five levels set across one planet, will cost 560 Microsoft Points ($7.00), even for those who belong to the Cerberus Network.

Here is a pic from the new DLC:

We had a similar situation in Brisbane - the state government dropped their funding and it closed down a lot of big name studios and investment.
There have been some decent titles over the years - Dark Reign, Rome: Total War, Destroy All Humans...all of those studios are now either closed or struggling.

Quantum Break - 2015

This is no rumor. I did play Dante's Inferno 1 and at the end I did saw the words "To Be Continued". Meaning that they planned that from the start...

The game can take you in a journey of fantasy, cause your mind is the creator of fantasy !

Sony, Activision Rethinking UK Investment

"For us to continue to invest in the UK there needs to be an incentive provided for us to do so. The talent pool in the UK is among the best in the world for what we do. But we really need to see some more incentives. We are seeing great incentives in Canada, Singapore and eastern bloc countries.”

Not cool. I need to get off this rock.

Should have been a seperate console, imo. £100+ for a peripheral device isn't compelling, especially as you can get a Wii for much less. Still, it's in-line with Microsoft's general strategy of 'anything you can do, we can do better'.

Mostly, yes. There are always going to be people that can find the fun in any game, but if a game gets terrible reviews across the board, you can usually tell from there that you're not going to get a mind-blowing experience.

That said, I watched my friend play the beta for 10 minutes (which was about 8 minutes too long) and it just looked like a gross buggy mess.

New RPG being formally announced on Thursday! Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. (that title blows) But anyway, the lead designer is the dude who crafted Morrowind and Oblivion. So that will give you an idea of what to expect...it's expected to be more cinematic and action oriented, however. It will be for the 360, PS3, and PC.
