Heavy Rain: First 9 Minutes

Wow, the first full 9 minutes of the upcoming Adventure tale from Quantic Dream and Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3 looks just like a movie. The gameplay looks slow and boring to start, but the graphics look hot. This is only the beginning of the game, meaning the developers could have made it more fun and interactive from the ending point of this video onto the end of the game.Anyway, enjoy the video below, and click on it if you want to see a bigger version.

Heavy Rain will be available to consumers on February 23 for the PlayStation 3.

GC 09: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Landing In March

“When Battlefield: Bad Company 2 ships in March, it will deliver the best online multiplayer experience ever.” Those were the words of Karl Magnus Troedsson, Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s executive producer, at this week’s GamesCom in Cologne Germany.

Even if only half of that statement turns out to be true, we either have a new sequel to the Battlefield series this coming March, or we will have an experience with multiplayer that goes far beyond what gamers have enjoyed in Activision’s own Call of Duty 4.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is planned to be available to consumers for the PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 on March 2 In the United States and March 5 in Europe.

MAG Public Beta Invites Sent Out

Some lucky gamers have received the first wave of beta invites for Sony’s new online multiplayer game MAG. The following was posted on Joystiq when they received an invite:

According to the beta enrollment page, Sony “will be adding people in waves.” If you don’t see an invite in your inbox right now, don’t worry: you may be invited later. “If you do not receive an invite for the first wave you may still be invited in a following MAG Public Beta wave.”

Sony has already conducted a closed beta for MAG for over a month. The expansion of the beta to the public gives us hope that maybe — just maybe — we’ll be able to see MAG‘s 256-player online battles hitting the PS3 sooner rather than later.

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is Going Hardcore

[blip.tv ?posts_id=2479332&dest=-1]

Remember Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare by Infinity Ward? Was it really that long ago that IW was shipping out its polished addition to the Call of Duty series that ushered the series into the Modern era? Call of Duty 4, with its hardcore mode revolutionizing the FPS genre, was an instant hit. So is it wrong for another developer to take that success and pour it into their new game?

Well it appears that Codemasters will take their long awaited sequel to the Operation Flashpoint series and add some of the clever features Infinity Ward added to their sequel in order to match the numbers that IW sold. Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, developed by Codemasters, will see a new “hardcore”-type mode added similar to the one Modern Warfare featured.

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is scheduled to be available on October 6 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

EA Sports Predicts 2009 Football Season with Madden NFL 10

Beer, chips, and HDTV’s, it must be Football season again. EA’s new edition to the Madden series, Madden NFL 10, is once again predicting the 2009 NFL season by simulating each team with their current rosters. They even have included individual rewards for the leading players in offense and defense. Enjoy the simulation below, but as usual none of these results are official or guaranteed to happen.

The 2009 NFL season will, once again, be ruled by Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, according to the official Madden NFL 10 Season Simulation.  With the August 14th release of Madden NFL 10 less than 2 weeks away, EA SPORTS gazed into the crystal ball to predict the divisional winners and league leaders of the 2009 NFL season.

After missing nearly the entire 2008 season due to an injured left knee, Tom Brady led the New England Patriots to the best overall record (14-2) as he compiled over 4,500 yards and threw for 47 touchdowns – also being named the season MVP and Offensive Player of the Year.

The rest of the AFC played out similar to last season, as the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tennessee Titans and San Diego Chargers won their divisions, while the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens secured the AFC Wild Card spots.  The biggest surprise was the performance of New York Jets rookie quarterback, Mark Sanchez, who took home the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.  It was not enough, however, as the Jets once again failed to make the playoffs.

In the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles returned to prominence, winning the toughest division (NFC East), thanks to a 12-4 record.  Andy Reid was awarded Coach of the Year.  The Arizona Cardinals and Atlanta Falcons prove that last year wasn’t a fluke as they took home their division crowns.  The Jay Cutler-led Chicago Bears will also rebound in a big way, taking the NFC North division.  The New York Giants and Carolina Panthers grabbed the NFC Wild Card spots.

NFL 2009 Season Awards (as simulated by Madden NFL 10):

  • NFL MVP – Tom Brady, New England Patriots
  • Offensive Player of the Year – Tom Brady, New England Patriots
  • Defensive Player of the Year – Patrick Willis, San Francisco 49ers
  • Offensive Rookie of the Year – Mark Sanchez, New York Jets
  • Defensive Rookie of the Year – Brian Orakpo, Washington Redskins
  • Coach of the Year – Andy Reid, Philadelphia Eagles.

NFL 2009 All-Pro Team:

  • Quarterback – Tom Brady, New England Patriots
  • Running Back
    • Michael Turner, Atlanta Falcons
    • Brandon Jacobs, New York Giants
  • Wide Receiver
    • Randy Moss, New England Patriots
    • Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
  • Tight End – Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys
  • Offensive Line
    • Matt Light, New England Patriots
    • Shawn  Andrews, Philadelphia Eagles
    • Chris Snee, New York Giants
    • Logan Mankins, New England Patriots
    • Michael Roos, Tennessee Titans
  • Defensive Line
    • Trevor Pryce, Baltimore Ravens
    • Haloti Ngata, Baltimore Ravens
    • Kris Jenkins, New York Jets
    • Osi Umenyiora, New York Giants
  • Linebacker
    • Patrick Willis, San Francisco 49ers
    • Channing Crowder, Miami Dolphins
    • James Farrior, Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Defense Back
    • Brandon Meriweather, New England Patriots
    • Nnamdi Asomugha, Oakland Raiders
    • Ed Reed, Baltimore Ravens
    • Donte Whitner, Buffalo Bills
  • Kicker – Josh Scobee, Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Punter – Brad Maynard, Chicago Bears
  • Kick Returner – Devin Hester, Chicago Bears
  • Punt Returner – Josh Cribbs, Cleveland Browns

So it appears the New England Patriots will be the team to beat this year, if you believe Madden NFL 10 that is.

Enjoy some videos of Madden NFL 10 below.

DJ Hero, Activision’s form of Guitar Hero for DJ’s, will give those hoping to express their inner party-starter the chance to hone their skills on the turntables. Supplying players with a turntable-like controller, Activision hopes to create the same feeling players receive when playing with the guitar controller in their Guitar Hero series. The turntable includes a rotatable turntable with three buttons placed on top, an effects dial, and a crossfader. Also on the controller is the “Euphoria” button, which when pressed triggers a Star Power-like mode such as in Guitar Hero.

DJ Hero is set to appear on store shelves for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, and Nintendo Wii on October 27.
