Halo + Natal = Awesome?

Halo + Natal = Awesome?

Bungie's president Harold Ryan and creative director Joseph Staten had an interesting and exciting announcement for us about the next game in the Halo franchise - Halo: Reach. Apparently, they believe that Reach is a perfect match for Project Natal.

Since the announcement and demonstration of Natal at E3 this year, everyone has been wondering where and how it might be used in a real-world game. The fact that Bungie sees a way to make it useful in a real game is very encouraging.

Being as Halo has been the series everyone thinks of when they think of Xbox or Xbox 360, this suggests that Microsoft may have a winner of a peripheral on their hands. What do you think of the idea of Project Natal in the Halo series?

Sony Ericsson PSP Go

Sony Ericsson PSP Go

I couldn't think of any more Sony words to put together to title this news article, and apparently neither could Sony in deciding what its next project would be. Sony will be working on a new handheld gaming device plus phone starting in the near future. Obviously we have no details right now, as they haven't started working on it, but that never stops us from making it into news!

If I had to take my guess, Sony will do what they always do and take something they already have, make it bigger and add the desired new features to it. In this case, the PSP Go, plus touchscreen and accelerometer, plus a phone. It would be a pretty natural addition, considering the PSP Go already has Bluetooth and WiFi.

What do you think? Original or rehashed?


Walkman and CyberShot! Nailed it!

Uncharted Movie

<i>Uncharted</i> Movie

Videogames are too interactive, don't you think? All that thinking and thumb moving can be exhausting. If you agree, I have great news for you: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune for the PS3 is becoming a movie! Now you can enjoy the story without having any of the fun.

Now that that is out of the way, there actually is good news about the movie. It is being written by Kyle Ward, who is also the writer on Kane & Lynch and was hired for Hitman too. Also, it won't matter this time if you can tel the difference between objects and rendered backdrops because you don't have to do anything.

Seriously, though, who do you think would be a good team to put this movie together? Or, if you prefer, who would be a good team to bring on to make the movie interesting, since we can predict another crappy videogame movie?
