Pitchford details how Colonial Marines fits into Aliens canon

Remember how Randy Pitchford promised that Aliens: Colonial Marines would clear up the "inconsistencies" of the films' canon, particularly Aliens 3? Speaking to Kotaku, the Gearbox boss gave a detailed description of how the game intersects with the movies. You have to be pretty deep in the fandom to appreciate it, but if you do, I suspect you'll be champing at the bit for Aliens: Colonial Marines to release on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in northern autumn, as well as the as-yet undated Wii U launch.
