EU News Wrap, September 8 – What happened today
Going to switch it up a bit by dropping a Radiohead image. Did you really expect another Thom Yorke-only one?
That was a nice lunch Rockstar ruined for me. I had an entire hour to myself to do what I please for lunch, as I always do. I munch away at a packet of crisps and watching Tron Legacy – what else – when all of a sudden, I see Rockstar popping up on Twitter saying “MAX PAYNE 3 is coming March 2012!”
To which I literally scramble to get it live as soon as possible to the sound of Daft Punk’s Fall from the TV. Could have been worse things to be listening to whilst getting an urgent story out.
Anyways, here is the European news:
- Quick quotes: Aonuma “never actually finished” original Legend of Zelda
Zelda fanboys are probably raging at this so hard right now. Then again, maybe not.
- Chahi’s Another World coming to iOS on September 22
The man behind From Dust brings out his original opus to iPhone and iPad in a couple of weeks.
- Report: Retail sales to be surpassed by digital in two years
GO TEAM DIGITAL! GO TEAM! Or whatever. Is that how you do it?
- F1 2011 gets championship co-op dev diary
Properly looking forward to this. Last year’s version was brilliant.
- FF Type 0′s Japanese boxart is a winner
One word to describe this: stunning.
- Harmonix launches VidRhythm for iOS
Might download this tonight.
- Modern Warfare 3 PC to feature LAN support
- Sony TGS presser confirmed for Wednesday
Vita! Vita! Vita! VEEEEEEETAAAAAAH!
- Rockstar confirms Max Payne 3 for March 2012
The big news story of the day so far. Now all that’s left is to properly re-reveal Agent and announce GTA V.
- Original Max Payne to go HD for mobile
This was hidden in the MP3 presser. Sneaky shit.
- Sony Bend planned Resistance Retribution sequel before Uncharted Vita
But now it isn’t and is instead working on Uncharted. Good call, considering how amazing Golden Abyss is going from my time with it at gamescom.
- From Dust launching on PSN next week
If you didn’t get it on XBLA or PC this summer, now’s your chance.
- RAGE gets first co-op video
Still looks awesome, innit.
- Microsoft confirms TGS lineup
No surprises in it. Just whatever’s been there from E3 and gamescom.
And that be that. Tomorrow is the weeeeekend! But more important, it’s Resistance 3 day! Pumped. See you tomorrow.
