Propaganda: Killzone 2 Demo to clash with Halo 3?

XBoxer's David Halse claims that Game Reactor (a Scandinavian video gaming magazine) has learned from Guerrilla Games (Killzone developer) that a Killzone 2 Demo will be released shortly to coincide with Halo 3's release. Sony intends to crash Halo 3's launch party and steal Microsoft's thunder. Of course, Sony's plan could backfire and run the risk of Killzone being buried by Halo, again.

Metal Gear Online Beta: Victoria's Secret Anyone?

I don't know how they do this, since I'm not in the beta but it's quite amusing. This video entitled "Joking Around In Metal Gear Online Beta" shows some players looking at bikini girls in a magazine with love symbols coming out of their head. Really funny actually.

Lair Feel-On at Game Planet

I went over to my local game store, Game Planet yesterday to take a look at their Lair game. Unfortunately, I didn't have the amount of cash to buy the game, so I ended up buying Resident Evil 4 instead (I've seriously, never played it). Thought I'd give you guys the boxshot images I took while I was there, guess you could enjoy it if you don't actually own it yet.

PlayStation 2 Sales Still Dominates PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Sales

Sony's PlayStation 2 remains the highest selling console on the market, selling over the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. An amazing 115 million units have been sold worldwide so far.

"We encourage third parties to continue development for PS2. If they bring a PS3 version out, they can bring a PS2 version out as well," said Sony rep David Reeves in a recent interview. "What happened last time with PS1 is that they left a lot of money on the table by making the transition too quickly,"
Since the PlayStation 3 launched in November, the PlayStation 2 has outmatched it in sales every month. Microsoft's Xbox 360 has only beaten the PS2 twice in monthly sales since its late-2005 launch.

Reactor Zero working on New PlayStation Network Game

Remember Outrage Games, well their back as Reactor Zero and are working on a new casual PlayStation Network game. Currently, they have nine to ten people working on the project.

The PSN game is a sort of three-dimensional "Tetris"-like construction game with a working title of "High Rise," in which you have limited time to manipulate a chunk of building material into an ongoing project before the next one appears, attempting to create a tall, stable structure.

"It's a little like the old days, and that's kind of fun," Matt Toschlog said. "There's a lot more market for smaller-type games. If you want to do a really big PlayStation or Xbox-type game, it's $10 million to $20 million and a whole bunch of people. Publishers are reluctant to fund that because there's no creative control."

Sounds like another good puzzler, we'll see when it arrives on the store.
