Left 4 Dead Preorders Surpass Orange Box, $10M Advertising Campaign Underway

Need proof that co-op gaming is on the rise?  How about the fact that pre-orders for Left 4 Dead, the 4 player co-op shooter from Valve Software, is selling about 60% higher in preorders than the insanely popular Orange Box did.  Impressions for the game have been nothing short of outstanding, ours included, so it's no surprise the pre-sale hype is strong with this one.

50 Cent Game Picked up By THQ, Rap War Can Ensue

Oh dear, has gone all thug this morning.  First Soulja Boy and now 50 Cent?  Yes my find friend, all in the great name of co-op.  According to Kotaku, the co-op friendly 50 Cent: Blood in the Sand has been picked up by games publisher THQ.  There's no word on a release date or a status, in fact there hasn't even been an official announcement, but we'll keep our eyes close to the blinding desert on this one.
