Heroes: The Game In Development?

According to Surfer Girl (the girl with the inside scoop, it never gets old), a Heroes video game is in the making.

This was actually one of our questions to her, as I am a big fan of the Heroes TV show. If you thought a video game for LOST was good, then you get a double stuffed cake.

Surfer Girl doesn't reveal anything on the game, but just simply says a game is in the making. It will most likely hit the PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360.

Sega: No Plans for a Virtua Fighter 5 PS3 Patch

You'd think that Sega would be kind to the PLAYSTATION 3 owners of Virtua Fighter 5, but it seems not. First off, Sega released the once exclusive title on the Xbox 360. Then, Sega releases a patch that improves the gameplay of the game both offline and online on the Xbox 360 version as well.

You think they'd throw us a bone? According to Sega's Jay Boor, "at this time SEGA has no plans to release a patch for the PS3 version of Virtua Fighter 5."

There is always Virtua Fighter 6.

Final Fantasy XIII & Versus XII Latest V-Jump Scans Translated

The guys over at managed to translate the newly released V-Jump scans of Final Fantasy XIII and Versus XIII released a bit earlier this week. The scans show the background story of the game as well as some of the summons in Final Fantasy XIII such as Ifrit. The Versus XIII scans just describe the new characters seen in the latest trailer at the Jump Festa.

The PLAYSTATION 3's Yellow Light of Death

Every console has it's faults. All Xbox 360's have a 33% chance of receiving the "Red Ring of Death" at any given time. Fortunately, this PLAYSTATION 3 "Yellow Light of Death" is more of a 1% chance.

A member of GameTrailers reported this in video form on the site. He believes it may be due to a hard-drive problem because of the clicking noise. I would recommend trying to replace the HDD with a better bigger one. If not, call Sony.

EDGE Magazine Features New Far Cry 2 Information

Far Cry 2 was recently announced to be coming to the next-generation consoles known as the PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360, with no details about the game given. The latest issue of EDGE corrects that mishap.
