Killzone 3 Officially Announced

The new issue of Gamepro is hitting news stands, and with it comes the official announcement of Killzone 3.   Highlights for the sequel include full 3D for televisions that support it, as well as jetpacks playing a big part of gameplay.  

Also the game is said to feature a lot of snow levels.  Sadly, no word on any co-op play.

A Perfect World Acquires Runic Games

We previewed a handful of MMOs from A Perfect World back during PAX East.  We actually knew at that point that they wanted more of a piece of the Runic pie, having only published the retail version of Torchlight.  This week they announced they had purchased a majority share in the small company for over 8 million dollars.

Runic Games Fansite interviewed CEO Max Scaefer regarding the acquisition.


The Price is Right hits PSN

Growing up I can remember eating grilled cheese sandwiches and watching the Price is Right with  Bob Barker.  Those are some fond memories, and the mini games played during the show still have stuck with me.  Now the PSN is getting a full videogame version of it.  The full game will cost you $9.99 - and not a dollar more.

Sonic 4 Gets Delayed, New Platforms

Sega has announced that the 2d/3d hybrid Sonic game called Sonic 4 Episode 1 will be delayed until later this year to make way for some polishing.  The good news is the game is also going to find it's way to the iPhone and iPod Touch along with the XBLA, PSN and WiiWare versions.
