Report: BOTH New Xbox and PS4 Will Be Shown At E3
UK games industry outlet MCV has reported that both the next Xbox AND the PlayStation 4 will be shown at this year's E3 in June.
This isn't the first time that a publication has cited an unnamed source with information like this, but this isn't some unknown central European games blog - MCV's credibilty makes this particular report worth paying attention to.
Speaking on Twitter, MCV's online editor Ben Parfitt said "Obviously we can't reveal our sources. But you have my personal word on this - the source is exemplary, 100% concrete, ultra high level."
We shouldn't necessarily expect a full-blown reveal, though - we might just see the announcement. Editor-in-Chief Michael French told IGN: "This is very credible. Even if we don't see the hardware itself, or know a price or date, key publishers and developers are expecting some nod towards what direction PS4 will take at E3 this year. Sony isn't stupid - it knows that if Microsoft is planning to also say something about its next console, it can't be left behind." READ MORE HERE
New Van Halen single 'Tattoo' released
The latest on the VAN HALEN front: They've named their new album "A Different Kind of Truth", and it'll be out on February 7th. It's their first album with DAVID LEE ROTH since "1984", which came out in 1984.
Van Halen played their first gig on Thursday in New York City . . . at a tiny club called Café Wha?. And they unveiled a new song. Sort of. It's called "She's the Woman", and it's actually a song they wrote in the '70s, but never put on an album.
There's a rough demo of it from back in the day on YouTube.
The band also announced a bunch of tour dates. They run from February 18th in Louisville . . . to June 26th in New Orleans. And get this: KOOL AND THE GANG is supposedly opening for them on select dates. Check out there tour dates and schedule HERE
Star Wars: The Old Republic Is The Largest Entertainment Voice Over Project Ever
by Kyle Hilliard on January 07, 2012 at 04:40 PM
According to Guinness, Star Wars: The Old Republic has more voice over work than any other project ever.
The game has over 200,000 lines of recorded dialogue according to Guinness, easily beating out any feature film or other video game.
I'm curious what exactly defines "a project," though. Could The Simpsons be considered a project? That might have more voice work associated with it, if you take the entire series as a whole. READ MORE HERE
