Posted in EA, Valve, Xbox 360 with tags , on August 4, 2009 by Jonathan Cullen

left-4-deadValve’s announced a brand new piece of DLC coming to Left 4 Dead.

Thats Left 4 Dead 1, not Left 4 Dead 2, before you go off in a panic.

It’s called Crash Course, which has a new campaign (between No Mercy and Death Toll) and new survival maps. Plus, new dialogue from the original cast and new locations, which is nice.

There has also been a couple of gameplay tweeks added as well, but you can find them after the jump, reading the PR.

No date yet, other then September, but it will cost 560MS points for when it does release (PC owner’s get it free).

You get your first look at it next week with the newest episode of GameTrailers TV.

PR below.

RUMOR: GT5 to Launch Before the End of the Year

Posted in PlayStation 3, Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios with tags , , on August 2, 2009 by James Love

gt5Them earlier rumors that came out in late April are starting to come to fruition.

The good folks over at GTPlanet have learnt from one of their trusted sources that Gran Turismo 5 is almost certain to launch in 2009, Christmas to be specific, but this could still change at Sony’s discretion.

The website have also stated that the date of December 29th is incorrect, with the 4th December date looking the more likely now in time for the Christmas period. It is possible that Sony will announce the official date at GamesCom in Cologne during their press conference on August 18th.

At E3, Polyphony Digital’s leader, and the creator of GT, Kazunouri Yamauchi, said that they could release the game at anytime. After those remarks, the earlier rumors and this, this is now looking more likely by the day. And Yamauchi also confirmed earlier in late June that a date would be confirmed soon.

It was rumored it would be out for Christmas back in April. The game was revealed back at E3.

playstation-3If you thought the PSPGo was the worst kept secret ever, watch this!

Yet again, the PS3 Slim appears in the news, and every rumor we keep hearing of , it’s almost like it’s shouting to us “we’re fucking real, get the fucking hint!”.

And we are — and thereforth — so are Amazon.

And of all the places too, . The retailer website has a listing for the new PS3 SKU, but no price or date has appeared for the console.

Of course, we’ll not take this as a coincidence. Sony’s press conference in Cologne at GAMEScom is only 3 weeks away. You’d be a fool to bet against a reveal in Germany this month, alongside a price-cut for the big fat PS3 right now.
