Rumor Control: Star Ocean: The Last Hope Not Coming To PS3 This Summer

By Spencer . April 23, 2009 . 7:07pm

A scan supposedly of Famitsu or Dengeki PlayStation is making rounds claiming Star Ocean: The Last Hope is coming the PlayStation 3 in summer 2009 (thanks for the tip Sir Fratley!!).   While really well made, it’s a fake.   The first key off is this week’s Famitsu Table of contents. Look closely at the […]

By Spencer . February 18, 2009 . 1:25pm

Xbox.com is handing out wonky release dates. First, Exit 2 was “announced” for release this Wednesday, but that didn’t happen. The only game that showed up on Xbox Live Arcade was Death Tank. Exit 2′s release date has been changed to an uninformative “TBD”.   Then the product page for Puzzle Quest: Galactrix said it […]

Yaris Not Yanked From Xbox Live, It Expired

By Spencer . November 5, 2008 . 8:54am

As if anyone cared about downloading it now, the Yaris advergame suddenly vanished on Xbox Live. The Xbox page is gone too, possibly sparking fear that Microsoft is chopping the Xbox Live long tail. Yaris wasn’t deleted for low review scores even though it got them. The game simply expired.   That’s right expired. Yaris […]

Capcom crushes Resident Evil 4: Classic Edition rumor

By Spencer . March 26, 2008 . 7:46am

Sure, Resident Evil 4 has changed systems with two console ports. But, that doesn’t mean Capcom is doing it again even if a blurry screenshot suggests the possibility. The rumor about a PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version of Resident Evil 4 seems to originate from a message board where an artist was supposedly working on box […]

Rumor Control: WiiWare coming in March? Yes, it is. Really!

By Spencer . January 11, 2008 . 12:27pm

A press release from Engine Software (attached at the break) sparked discussion that the Nintendo’s downloadable game service, WiiWare is on target for March ’08. I didn’t immediately view this as “news” because when Nintendo unveiled the first batch of WiiWare games at the 2007 Nintendo conference they announced the service would launch in March […]

An loyal Siliconera reader sent in a tip that just seemed too good to be true. High Def Digest claimed that the home release of Resident Evil: Extinction would come with two video game demos.   Additional supplements shared with the standard-def DVD version of the film (which is debuting day-and-date with the Blu-ray) include […]

The Rumor That Won’t Die: MGS4 semi-confirmed for Xbox 360?

By Rolando . July 10, 2007 . 9:43am

If you had a nickel for every time a newfound rumor of Metal Gear Solid 4 coming to the story was posted, you'd more than likely be a pretty rich person. Perhaps not rich enough to pay off your mortgage or even your student loan, but you'd have enough money to know that there's just […]

By Spencer . June 18, 2007 . 11:54am

QJ.net saw a listing for a Nintendo Wii freeloader on Italian retail site YouToo and sparked hope for Wii owners planning to import games. However, this is not the “Wii Freeloader” they think it is, meaning it does not work with Wii games. Let’s look at the packaging of the box. It says…   Freeloader […]

Siliconera reader IceAmp dropped a tip that he (or she? either way thanks!) said decapitations were axed and it looks like the rest of the internet is getting their information from this article on Next-gen. Yeah, Resident Evil […]

By Spencer . June 4, 2007 . 3:26pm

Joystiq through NintendoWiiFanboy are reporting that credible French gaming site Jeux-France mentioned that Mario Kart Wii is going to be unveiled at E3. While it appears that Jeux-France is the source for this rumor everything goes back to Nintendo’s Media Summit event where a forum post appeared on Gametrailers before the embargo was lifted. It […]

Rumor Control: Front Mission 1st not entirely in English

By Spencer . May 28, 2007 . 9:46pm

Thanks for the tip IceAmp about Front Mission 1st being packaged with an English language option, but it is only partially true. Yeah, Front Mission 1st has English menus and status screens. However, the story is entirely in Japanese. (See the picture on the right?) I don’t want to burst anyone’s bubble, but I also […]
