The team behind the very popular Crimson Skies game, have released more info about the much awaited game “Dark Void”.
The game starts as a plane flies through the Bermuda Triangle and send it crashing down into a alien dimension where they discover a hostile race known as “The Watchers”.
It is set in 3rd person, which seems as though it would be easiest because you have to use a jetpack, you use normal human weaponry and alien energy based weapons as well. With the use of the jetpack you can travel to different areas through voids in the alien dimension.
Microsoft has reported a huge loss to equate to a revenue of $31.65 billion in this quarter whereas they have been making profit over consecutive quarters before hand. This is a loss of 3 percent, which makes quite a large difference to such a big company and product.
Microsoft still sold 1.7 million consoles last year which is an increase of 30 percent, which is impressive for any product.
With every Xbox 360 owner having on average 8.3 Xbox 360 games and 3.9 accessories this is an improvement from 2008 with sales of 7.5 games and 3.6 accessories per person.
During the call, chief accounting officer Frank Brod also updated investors on the company's Xbox business. For the fiscal year-to-date (since July 1, 2008), Brod said Microsoft had sold 10 million Xbox 360s worldwide, 15 percent more than it managed over its entire previous fiscal year.

The PS3 has an inbuilt fan which seems to wok better than the Xbox's for obvious reasons, such as the 3 red light which has plagued many people due to the rush that Microsoft wen through trying to beat the PlayStation's release date which they did not have to worry about since it was delayed for quite a while.
This function only works for the 40GB model for some reason, what you have to do start this up is eject he disk to make sure it doesn't get damaged. Then turn the power off at the back of the PS3, then hold down the eject button as you turn it back on from the back. It will then turn on with the fan running at it's top speed, it will go for about 2 minutes pushing all the dust out (best done when laid down on it's side). Once stopped the red light on the front will flash, then turn it off and back on again with the switch off the back.
This is only really helpful if it's in a shadowed corner where dust may collect.

The success of Call of Duty : Modern Warfare was phenomenal and still is mainly due to the lack of interest in the latest 'World at War'. Modern Warfare is going to be created by infinity ward again, they seem to be the best as all of their creations gave been a giant success compared to the others. They take it in turn to create the games, even though I wish they didn't. A teaser has been released and is shown below
The trailer does not show you much of what the story is likely to be about, but gives you a slight hint. It does not show you any of the gameplay footage, I think that it is still set to become a great game.

EA have brought a variety of different games already this year but they are going back to what seemed to be a failure, ProStreet, but through the success of Race Driver: Grid, they seemed to have decided to make a realistic racing game, based mainly on pure street racing. Check Out The Video Below
By the looks of what is said to be the actual graphics of the game they look pretty spectacular with impressive car design and even more impressive driver's view with all instruments working. Set to come out Autumn 2009, it looks like they will be bringing it out for Christmas due to EA's track record

Assassin's Creed is one of the most popular games to come out on the PS3 with its superb graphics and the ability to use nearly everything in the environment. Ubisoft have released a small video about Assassin's Creed 2, it doesn't tell us much about the gameplay but makes us think that it may link slightly to Dan Brown's Novel 'The Da Vinci Code'. With many symbols appearing in the clip that come up from the game. No gameplay is shown in this clip, but i am sure that the game will not disappoint.
