Ever visit the website for the British newspaper
The Sun? If not, you missed the weirdest video game ad EVER. EA used two topless girls to promote its new game Need for Speed: Pro Street.
The problem is that the EA execs never approved this ad. They have apologized saying "We regret that these images slipped through the proper EA approval process. They were not appropriate for our brand." Oops.
Do you remember AT&T, the company who thought the idea of a completely locked phone, in the iPhone, would be great? Well, now they have taken a complete 180 and are now considering joining the Open Handset Alliance, whose current major members include Sprint, Google and T-Mobile.
What will happen to the iPhone if AT&T joins the alliance? Will AT&T be successful in making the iPhone open, or will Apple move to another carrier? We'll keep you posted as this keeps going.
Hooray! We will soon be able to buy a stand-alone controller for
Guitar Hero 3! Unfortunately it will not be until next year, so while you're on your holiday break from school, you'll have to share with your neighbor, best friend or whoever.
We do not know when, exactly, but the important thing is, they're coming.
You've been waiting for new maps for
Halo 3 and here they are, chickadees. 3 new maps launching on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 points. Each map, Standoff, Rat's Nest and Foundry, offer a unique style of play.
The maps will be available starting December 11, but if you can wait until the Spring, you can get them for free.
All of the fun of
Halo 3 comes to Guitar Hero 3 in the form of a free downloadable track. The theme song from Halo 3 is available for a free download from the Xbox Live Marketplace, and it is a lot of fun. Go get it before it is too late.
Have a PSP but not a PS3? There is a good chance of it. Well, now you can download PSP and PS1 games anyway. So long as you have a Windows-based PC, head on over to the
PlayStation Store and rustle you up some fine gaming.
