Don Mattrick: The Great Bigmouth – “Bungie Were Laughing”, Bungie: “We Werent Laughing”

Posted in Xbox 360 with tags , , , , on July 24, 2008 by Jonathan Cullen

Don Mattrick.

What a guy apparently. Cool, calm and like a cuecumber…but also cocky and the biggest loudmouth ever? Since he took over Peter Moore’s job last year as Head of Xbox, he’s kept a low spotlight (Giving John Schepart the GDC keynote) until E3 when he made his first public appearence since taking the job last August.

He boldly claimed that the Xbox 360 will at least beat the PLAYSTATION 3 this generation (Despite the fact the PS3 has overtaken the Xbox 360 in Europe and that since the start of the year, the PS3 has been outselling the 360 in America), took part in a very bad live demo of the very bad “You’re in the Movies” and of course, he was as cocky as you like, giving two thumbs up on stage when Yuichi Wada of Square Enix came out to unveil Final Fantasy XIII for the Xbox 360 (As seen )

But today, in a interview published by Eurogamer, Mattrick states that the 360 will still sellout the PS3 this gen. He also claims that when they cut the new Halo game out of the MS E3 Press Conference, Head of Bungie, Harold Ryan, was laughing.

Iwota Says: “We’re Sorry for E3″. We Say: “WE WANT DUNAWAY AT THE STAKE”!

Posted in Nintendo Wii with tags , , , on July 24, 2008 by Jonathan Cullen

Remember that picture above? Back at E3 2005 when Satoru Iwota shown was known back at the time as the Revolution?

We were promised some great stuff back then such as a new Mario, new Zelda (Which was shown…but only in GameCube form), new Metroid, new Super Smash Brothers and more.

Well, it seems that while we did get all of those with Mario Galaxy, Zelda: Twilight Princess, Metroid Prime 3 and Super Smash Brothers Brawl, the games for the hardcore are now going away bar mentions of new Mario and Zelda games in development plus Pikmin 3 being confirmed by Shigeru Miyamoto, the console we know as the Wii is being plaugued by casual games.

Now, there is no new hardcore games on the rising for the Wii just casual stuff like Wii Sports Resort, Wii Music and before you know it, it’s gonna be WiiTV somehow as well as WiiFit being released a couple of days before Grand Theft Auto IV.

Plus, with the shambles that was last Tuesday’s E3 press conference which featured 4 of the biggest catastrophys ever (The entire time Cammie Dunaway was on stage, Reggie’s charts and the bare lack of hardcore games for the Wii, WiiMusic), Nintendo are the biggest laughing stock in gaming right now.

But, alas, the president of Nintendo has made an apology. That after the jump.

CONFIRMED: Final Fantasy VII Remake Not Happening

Posted in PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 with tags , , , , , on July 23, 2008 by Jonathan Cullen

Contary to the rumors that was posted on PS Lifestyle last night, a remake of Final Fantasy VII will not be happening. They have started that they have conflicting info from an insider and while a spin-off or sequel could happen, a remake is NOT one of them.

It comes after earlier in the day, Square Enix gave a No Comment from Eurogamer on the subject so while this could be a double bluff by either Square Enix or PS Lifestyle on their end or if it is indeed true that there is no remake coming, for now it seems, there will be no remake coming.
