Case in point: the PlayStation Rewards Program. Its beta is nearly across the finish line, but it’s far from home free.

  • PC Fable III delayed, announcement of new date coming "soon"

    When Microsoft proudly proclaimed that Fable III on PC was launching day-and-date with its console counterpart, did you think the whole thing just sounded too good to be true?

  • Max Payne 3 joins BioShock 2 in FY2010

    While BioShock 2′s delay into fiscal 2010 quite rightly dominated last night’s confessional press release and subsequent conference call from Take-Two, you may not have noticed that it wasn’t the only big game to take a tumble. Max Payne 3 has also been pushed into the next financial year, having been originally planned for a […]

First up, the game isn’t hitting North American Xbox 360s until […]

  • Sonic Unleashed delayed until 2009 in Japan, still on track in West

    Well this is strange. According to a report by Siliconera, Sonic’s latest adventure won’t be making a pit stop in Japan until spring of 2009. However, the game’s release date remains unaffected in other territories. And that’d be fine – if not for one perplexing detail. Apparently, Sega is slowing Sonic’s Japanese release in order […]

    Ubisoft has said this morning that an Xbox World 360 story claiming Splinter Cell Conviction is “on hold” isn’t answerable unless it’s come from an official source.
