IGN’s Matt Casamassina has published an email from an “inside source” that claims Factor 5 is to close.
From the mail:
We just learned from inside sources that developer Factor 5 has officially closed their doors as of today. That’s some pretty big news considering that those guys have been around for quite a while. It’s definitely a real shame! I hope that this information is helpful to you.
Factor 5 was reported to be in a spot of bother last week as it was rumoured that 37 staff were laid off.
More Christmas cheer for the games industry, it seems.

This will no doubt be taken as meaning Kid Icarus is going to be announced for Wii tomorrow, but read into it what you will. As you can see in the movie after the break, IGN’s Matt “Icarus” Casamassina has dressed himself and one of his cohorts up in armour and posted a movie on the web entitled “Deadline.” This turned up in our newsreader as, “What?”
No, we don’t know either.

IGN’s Matt Casamassina – of Halo DS fame – is serving up a tantalizing trio of Nintendo DS rumors, two of which contradict each another.
First up, Casamassina’s “sources” notified him that Activision might be planning an Nintendo DS accelerometer attachment. The topsy-turvy peripheral would – taking a cue from Activision’s own Guitar Hero: On Tour – fit into the DS’ Gameboy Advance slot.
But, sources also say that Nintendo might be planning to remove GBA functionality from the DS altogether, which limits Activision’s market a little.
As a sort of compromise, yet another rumor holds that Nintendo may be working on DS cartridge-based accelerometer tech, which could potentially mop up this whole mess.
So, what do you think? Want a new DS? A new peripheral? Yeah, neither do we, but we’ll still be in line on day one.
Nintendo’s E3 press conference starts at 9.00am PST today.

IGN’s Matt Casamassina has said yet again that a new Kid Icarus game is going to be shown at E3 this year.
“Of course [Nintendo is] going to have some E3 surprises,” said the longstanding editor in a podcast. “You know, Kid Icarus, for crying out loud, how many times do we have to say Kid Icarus? Kid Icarus is coming for crying out loud.”
Later on in the chat, Casamassina added, “”Kid Icarus, that’s another one that I’m really anticipating just because I love the franchise and I’m sure that the developer will make a really pretty game.”
This isn’t the first time Matt’s mentioned the game. Just Google “casamassina kid icarus” to see what we mean.
