Ok, so a couple weeks back we wrote about the upcoming Madden NFL 10 Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. Now with Madden’s release coming out tonight let’s finish this preview of the next Madden game up with everything you’ll need to know if your a PS2, PSP or Wii owner. Come on, you know you wanna hit the read link to see what’s knew so watch’a waiting for? Get to it!
For all you Guitar Hero fans, you day of waiting for your “Rock Band killer” has finally come. Today is the day Guitar Hero World Tour comes out with all the instruments — Guitar, Drums, Mic — and unlike Rock Band, this is available at launch for ALL systems: Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, and Wii (which still doesn’t have Rock Band 2). Check out our previous post here to see what makes this version better than ever.
What you waiting for? Go run down to your local Best Buy/ Walmart/ Target- wherever, and start rocking!
Oh, and let us know your take on the new Guitar Hero– better than Rock Band 2?
Remember the hit game that came out last year, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare? On November 11, you can get its next version: Call of Duty World at War (also known as Call of Duty 5). Wanna know all about this new edition of the game, what’s new? Then read on! More >
Now that Madden 09 is out in the wild (see our review on it here), lets turn back to the ever popular Rock Band 2. The news we got here is not going to be the most pleasant for fans of the “old” game (and those wanting to get in on the new one), but we’ll give it to you anyways. For those who wanna know more on this, hit the More link. More >

Well, I got myself a copy of Madden 09 on Tuesday, and after spending some time playing with it I must say that it is a very worthy successor to the Madden franchise. Wanna know more on this game and what I liked and didn’t like about? Hit the More link.
Ok, this is not as interesting or feature filled as Microsoft and Nintendo‘s conferences, but Sony did come out with some interesting things like a higher capacity PS3, new PS2 bundle (not everyone made the jump to the “next-gen” consoles), a new video download store and more. For all the info, just hit the “More” link.
In another edition of the news slowly but surely spilling out about Rock Band 2, we have good news and bad news. First the bad: the game will not allow players to record their own songs to play in the game, according to Joystiq, which is surprising considering its rival, Guitar Hero, will include such a feature. (Dont be too upset though– we expect a gr8 list of downloadable content). And the good: Rock Band 2 will be available for the Wii and PS2– the latter incompatible with Guitar Hero 4– later in the year, as said by a co-founder of the game in an interview with CNN.
Much more info is to be released in the coming weeks (the E3 Video Games conference is approaching- and we will keep you updated on it) but has this swayed your video game decision or not? Tell us below.
Guitar Hero 4 Guitar- notice the touchpad after the orange button in the middle of the neck.
It’s been a while since we last wrote about the much-anticipated Guitar Hero 4, and today we got some more info on how the new guitar will look and run. Unlike on older Guitar Hero’s and Rock Bands, this new guitar features not only buttons, but also a touchpad that can be used for doing various things like playing musical notes, and also in the new music maker we told you about in this Guitar Hero 4 post. All this info is courtesy of IGN, who actually have a first look at the next version. I’m pretty stoked on this, and really hope the new Guitar could work with Rock Band, so this way I don’t need to go out and spend another $100-$180 lol.
What are your thoughts, this new info enough to make you wanna wait till this comes out in October? you going for Rock Band instead? or are you not going to go for either at all? Let us know your plans and ideas in the comments.
At the All Things D conference–a technology conference we mentioned in the last post about Windows 7, we got some more news from there about how Guitar Hero 4 looks and works. I have to say, while it still looks pretty cool and adds some cool features, it strongly resembles Rock Band to me when played.
You decide. Check out this video from the conference with it in action– Tony Hawk is on guitar and Paula Abdul is “judging.” Let us know what you think of Guitar Hero 4 in the comments.

Man have we been writing a lot on this whole new Guitar Hero 4/ Guitar Hero World Tour game, but today, Gamespot.com revealed on their site today the pricing of 3 versions of the game along with an expected release date. The 3 versions are: Game-only (were assuming that implies the old guitar should work for this version), priced at $59.99 for Xbox 360 and PS3 while $49.99 for Wii and PS2; Guitar-only kit, costing $99.99 for all of the systems; and the o so wanted “Band Kit”–including the game, guitar, drums, and mic– will go for a whopping $189.99 for Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360, while $179.99 for the PS2. All versions, according to Gamestop.com, are expected to be released on October 27, so mark your calendars and start saving some $$$!
Readers– Which version will you get? Or will you ditch Guitar Hero entirely for either Rock Band (which is actually about $20 cheaper on each of the systems), or neither of them. Let your voice be heard in the comments.
