Microsoft has cut prices on some of its budget Classics games.
Five pounds off, actually.
So far, this means that for £14.99 you can get: Splinter Cell: Double Agent, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and Naruto: Rise of a Ninja.
This was tacked on to the announcement of Grand Theft Auto IV, Midnight Club: Los Angeles and BioShock to being added to the Classics range – just in case you missed it.

Comical. According to this forum thread, every time the PC version of Rainbow Six Vegas 2 crashes it creates a “MemDump” file nearly 1Gb in size.
Read the thread. It’s genius: “Just looked in my directory… whoa. 7 gigs of space being eaten by crash dumps. Wondered where all my HDD space was draining off to.”

The Frag Dolls recently tried to break the Guinness world record for playing an FPS by having a go at a marathon session of Vegas 2 in a big venue. They made a movie of it, which you can watch after the link. It’s cerebral stuff.
“I think I’ve developed SARS, or something,” said a Doll. “I’m definitely Ill. And my bra hurts.”
Will they do it? How many Pringles will they eat? What are the chances that they “gamed, gobbled and grunted their way into the record books”? How shagged will they look at the end? See for yourself.

Ubisoft has raised guidance for the current financial year from €875 million to €920 million for the full financial year, and announced that Rainbow Six Vegas 2 has sold 2 million units.
“As expected, 2008 is off to be a record year for the videogame market and our games have performed remarkably well in this context,” said Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot. “Assassin’s Creed and our Games For Everyone brands continued their strong performance and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 had a better than expected start. One year after the great success of the first title, the second iteration, which provides another unique multi-player experience in the much enjoyed Tom Clancy environment, is ranked among the top games on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in almost every country.”

Oh dear. Looks as though the 360 version of Rainbow Six Vegas 2 comes with its own glitches, following news that the PS3 version’s multiplayer is pretty much unplayable. According to this, the 360 game has an Achievement bug if you’re bringing data over from the first title, and also carries stat-tracking issues. Not so good. You’re being asked to report bugs here. Isn’t the bug-reporting bit supposed to happen before the game goes on sale?

Apparently the PlayStation 3 version of Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is experiencing some serious problems with its online play. Several reports surfaced last night of an inability to connect to servers, connections dropping out and freezes forcing console reboots. Ubi’s now aware of the issues and is “looking into this”, so hopefully we’ll hear something on a fix in the coming week.

According to this report, those of you that bought the 360 version Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 at US retailer Best Buy may have noticed a little sticker on the box informing you of how you can unlock a free gun.
Instead of making people actually buying the game to find out, they printed the code on the sticker itself so we can all share the free gun love. All you need to do is:
(Hold RB) Down, Down, Up, Up, X, B, X, B, Y, Up, Up, Y
There should be more of this. Years ago you could unlock all kinds of characters and cheats with a few button presses and some joystick waggle. More please, developers.

Says so here. The news came from Eurogamer’s LiveText interview with Ubisoft’s Phil Therien earlier.
“We took the decision to spend our time on polishing the game and the demo option was cut,” he said. “It’s really time-consuming to create a demo and we needed the dev time to finish our game.”
The shooter’s out later this month for PS3 and 360. A PC version ships in April.

Eurogamer’s holding a LiveText interview with Rainbow Six Vegas 2 lead designer Phillippe Therien at 4pm GMT today, so if you want to do something with your last hour of work that isn’t staring blankly into space or making 12 cups of coffee you can go and harass him for a bit. Be sure to prepare lots of searching questions like, “Where’s the next one going to be set?” and “Are PlayStations better than Xboxes?” In French, obviously.
