    OK guys..

    I felt like gamers are being ignored in the technology news section and the random news section. So, I thought of opening one thread myself which will be purely dedicated to gaming news. I'll update it once or twice a day. And I will mention the sources of the news too. I request all of the members to contribute. And it should be obvious to you that i will post the news by observing various gaming websites.

    Ok.. Today's news..

    New Contra Game on WiiWare next week.

    Every one of us would have played Contra. It's a true Gem in the arcade shooter. So, in 2007 they have released a contra game for DS. Now.. Konami is going to release a new contra game for wii. It will be officially available on WiiWare from next week. The game features..

    --2 player local co-op game play
    --Classic Contra firepower, including the popular Spreadshot
    --2 unlockable characters
    --Retro 2D sprite, action side scrolling game
    --Story follows the classic Contra theme.

    PS3 in Last Place in Japan

    Nintendo continues to tear up the Japanese sales charts with the most unthreatening of game releases. Friend Collection remained at the top of Media Create's weekly sales charts this week, staying level with its sales for the past few weeks and slowly climbing its way towards a million units.

    The casual-friendly DS title, which lets players place their Mii collection in a virtual world, beat out a few major new releases. Soul Calibur Broken Destiny and Super Robo Academy, both heavily promoted, didn't even cross the 30,000 mark. D3 Publisher's Xbox 360 host club sim, Dream Club, debuted with 46,000 units -- an impressive figure considering the system's limited audience.

    There wasn't much of a change in the hardware race. The PS3 continued to plummet, presumably as stock dried out and people realized that by waiting an additional week, they could end up with a cheaper, thinner, quieter system, and get an extra 40 gigs too!

    DSi: 59,881 (59,578)
    PSP : 26,081 (27,187)
    Wii: 25,038 (26,972)
    DS Lite: 7,304 (5,735)
    Xbox 360: 7,254 (8,979)
    PS2 : 3,179 (3,295)
    PS3: 1,040 (2,052)

    What's going on sony? Do some thing....!

    Grand Theft Auto IV Gets Title Update

    Today Rockstar Games released a title update for the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV. Should be a popular update, as it stops filthy cheaters in their tracks.

    Apparently folks were using cheat codes in multiplayer matches. No more, though. The update also fixes an invisible player issue.

    Need for Speed Shift - No Demo Coming Before Release

    As a reply for thousands of forum posts and emails by the franchise fans requesting to confirm Need for Speed: Shift demo.. EA officials said the following lines.

    "In the last few weeks we've received a lot of messages and forum posts about a demo so we're currently looking into the feasibility of releasing a demo for SHIFT. We are committed to releasing the best Need for Speed game so we kept the entire team working on the game to make sure we release a really great experience.

    We're really proud of what the guys at SMS and Black Box have created and we can't wait to get the game in your hands."

    It is obvious that the demo will not be coming out atleast before the game' release.

    • TROPHY SUPPORT – LittleBigPlanet supports a host of fun and challenging trophies to collect along the way.

    It is available from all the major retail stores.

    Eidos puts pirates in the Asylum

    idos appears to have laid a sneaky bat-trap, for those pesky pirates to trying to enjoy Arkham Asylum without paying.

    Apparently the all-important Glide ability gets disabled if you aren’t running a legit version… As a pirate recently found out on the forums.


    Cheshirec_the_cat (The Pirate)

    Hi!
    I’ve got a problem when it’s time to use Batman’s glide in the game. When I hold <Space> , like it’s said to jump from one platform to another, Batman tries to open his wings again and again instead of gliding. So he fels down in a poisoning gas. If somebody could tel me, what should I do there.

    Keir (Eidos)

    The problem you have encountered is a hook in the copy protection, to catch out people who try and download cracked versions of the game for free.

    It’s not a bug in the game’s code, it’s a bug in your moral code.

    PS3 Slim sales up nearly 1000% in the UK

    It looks like Engadget editors aren't the only folk who prefer technology that's slimmer, cheaper, and better. According to an article at GamesIndustry.biz, a group that charts retail sales in the UK is saying that sales of the PS3 increased over 999 percent in the week since its British debut of the newer, slimmer form factor. And if that wasn't good news enough for Sony, the console has also outsold the DS, Wii and Xbox 360 by approximately 3:1. Although the last time it was the lead hardware format in the UK was the first week of 2008, the PS3 has never lagged as far behind the others as it has Stateside. But still -- a near 1000 percent increase? If true, that makes the States' 104 percent increase seem lackluster in comparison. Then again, maybe the Brits never realized that Disney Sing It! High School Musical 3 is available on platforms other than the PlayStation. That could explain a lot of things, actually...

    I think achieving that is quite difficult. Even thou they have managed to mod the console.. Games should be loaded on a Bluray disc.. some of the games like MGS 4 even have the DualLayer Bluray discs.
