Manhunt 2 Patched

Manhunt 2 Patched

Remember that game we talked about? A little-known title, Manhunt 2? Well, some hackers have removed the content block that allowed them to release the game at all. Rockstar had this to say:

Hackers apparently have altered one of those edits to produce an illegally modified version of the game that can only be played on an unauthorized, modified PlayStation Portable handheld system.

And from the boosman, Chairman Strauss Zelnick,

I stand behind the game and the ESRB ratings process. It is unfortunately the case that no one in the entertainment software industry is immune from hacking. We hope that consumers will not engage in hacking or download illegally modified copies of our games. We encourage them to enjoy our games as they are meant to be played. We would also like to emphasize that Manhunt 2 is intended for an audience aged 17 and above.

Tabula Rasa With PvP

Tabula Rasa is a game we are looking forward to finally getting our hands on. An MMORPG based in a world where aliens are attacking? Hot! Now, added to that, we have a PvP ranking system that will be right on the website. That definitely means you need a cool name, because if you're good, you don't want something stupid on the main page, do you? Now go play, kiddies!

Metal Gear Solid Delayed

Metal Gear Solid Delayed

Another game has now been delayed... A LOT. Metal Gear Solid 4 has now been delayed until 2nd quarter 08. Why, you may ask? Here it is:

Konami has decided to delay the title's release in order to make further improvements to the quality of the game and provide even greater enjoyment for more customers worldwide. Konami will continue its efforts to make Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots meet everyone's expectations.

This is sad, but not unexpected or surprising. We know that there are memory management issues on the PS3 that have been an issue for other developers. Hopefullt, they will work out whatever is the cause and put out the amazing game we know is coming.

Warner Goes Blu?

Warner Goes Blu?

In a story that will make Adam cry, it appears that Warner Bros. is considering taking a side in the HD Wars. Up until now, they have released movies on both platforms, but that gets expensive, and they need to go one way or another. After looking at their own sales for each format, plus looking at the overall sales, it appears that we will be hearing an announcement soon saying that Warner will be losing the HD-DVD format in favor of blu-ray.
