I usually come and update the fellow gamers @ HUKD about the latest goss in the gaming world and today there was too much. Instead of making 3 seperate topics, i thought id just cover all 3 in one.

Taken snips from the source: http://www.comnetslash.com/

1. World Exclusive Trailer for Command & Conquer 3: Red Alert

Coming to PS3, PC and X360. Standard version of the trailer is on source site above. HD version link also available.

Gonna look sweet on all 3 formats!

2. Microsoft says PS3 will not get any Grand Theft Auto IV DLC

As most of you probably know, Microsoft has paid Rockstar to bring extra DLC (DownLoadable Content) exclusive to the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV.

That doesnt mean that the PlayStation 3 wont also be getting some downloadable content though - just that the Xbox 360 will get some stuff the PS3 wont. Or does it?!!

Microsofts Aaron Greenberg was asked to clear up the situation regarding DLC to which he replied:

Its not possible as far as Im aware, but that would be a good question to ask Rockstar, said Greenberg. Rockstar and Xbox have only said there are exclusive episodes coming this fall to Xbox 360. I might put that up for a bit of wishful thinking on their end.

3. Sony reveals software linup for 2008 and 2009

Sony has recently announced its 2008 and early 2009 playstation 3 software line-up via press release, Sonys Scott Steinberg says:

"For the second half of 2008 and beyond, we will see a spectacular line up of triple-A titles and original gaming content that will satisfy PlayStation fans across the board Highly anticipated games such as Resistance 2(TM), LittleBigPlanet(TM), and Killzone(TM) 2, along with original content such as SIREN: Blood Curse and PixelJunk(TM) Eden, demonstrate SCEAs passion to lead the market by continuing to deliver unique gaming content and revolutionary sequels to our best-selling franchises"

The full list is on the site.

Thats todays news squirts, will be back with more when it's hot enough.

I would've made the titles on each story in bold, but have no idea how to do so. Uber Noob here

Microsoft say no DLC for PS3, but PS3 have said nothing. Don't you think its a bit unfair for one company to say one thing about another?* What if Sony were to say "GoW2 has no Multiplayer"

Anyway, Sony never mentioned anything about FF13, I thought that was coming out late 08/ early 09


*By this, I mean making announcements on behalf of other companies

Man i completely agree with you but if you read the whole article on the source, you will see that Reeves (Sony VP) was asked to comment on the DLC and his responses worry me. Well not worry me but they are more in favour of the fact DLC will only come to the X360 because of the $50 million they paid RockStar.

Hope my intrepretation of his replies is wrong, but cant really say.

In all honesty I'm not really bothered about DLC, because I think GTA is fine the way it is. I was just a little thrown by Microsoft saying something on behalf of Rockstar/Sony.
I read somewhere that Microsoft won't make the money back from the DLC anyway, so I think they shot themselves in the foot right there :p

You're probably right dude.

Act of desperation or good competitive tactic by Microsoft with a $50m payout?

What you think

They paid a lot of money and have had a big marketing campaign based around the fact that the 360 will be getting exclusive DLC content. All that is designed to get the undecided to buy a 360. That only works though if people know for sure that the PS3 won't end up getting the same/similar content, and as Sony nor Rockstar have said anything, there's still a lot of uncertainty. So IMHO you can't blame Microsoft for wanting to say something about the issue.

The contract between R* and Microsoft will be water tight, Sony keeping quiet stops them fueling the fire fo something they also tried desperately to get, exclusivity.
#9
Im still glad i sold my 360, im playing my PS way more than the M$ machine and this DLC means nothing to me. Everytime there's been a booster pack out for BF2 or 2142 or ive dl'd add on packs for the games i had on the 360 i always ended up going back to the original game.

If R* have the DLC implemented with the original then that would be excellant, but im thinking it will be totally seperate and that will take away from the main game experience.

The 360 is still an awesome machine so im not knocking it btw ;)

Also you missed out Wipeout which i can't wait for!

Yea seems like we are all wound up with the GTA news.

Did you see the water effects in the C&C trailer???? They look f'in sweet as.

And the game line up looks amazing for the PS3, im waiting on Resistance 2, KillZone 2, Little Big Planet, Wipeout!

don't forget MGS4! :)

Oh yea! MGS4.

Ive seen loads of people argue which is better - 360 or PS3.

But i think there have been more X360 owners convert to the darkside than PS3 owners convert to the X360.

Command and Conquer should only be played with a Mouse and Keyboard. PC/Mac.

GTA IV DLC nothing story, Micrsoft spokesperson can't confirm if Rockstar will make anything other than the agreeed episodes so he doesn't know nothing. I think even those exclusives will only be timed.

All the PS3 games are already well known about.
