Limited Edition Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines PSP Entertainment Pack


On the Officical PlayStation Blog, Sony has revealed that they’re going to release a Limited Edition Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines bundle for an MSRP of $199.99. The pack will be available in November and will include the following:

  • White PSP-3000 system
  • Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines PSP Game
  • UMD Movie (to be announced)
  • 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo

Also on the same post is a Q&A with one of the producers, Frederic Lefrancois. When asked about how the game fits in with the Assassin’s Creed universe, he responded:

“Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines” follows Altair’s story right after the events of Assassin’s Creed as he hunts down the ascending Templars in Cyprus. It’s the only game that explains the link between Assassin’s Creed and Assassin’s Creed 2. If you want to understand how Ezio is born and where the Codex comes from, you need this game.

Sounds like we’d have to check it out to understand what the heck is going on in Assassin’s Creed 2 eh?

Street Fighter Special Collectors Edition announced for Xbox 360 and PS3


final  fantasy 13 screenshot

Pre-Order Street Fighter IV on PS3Capcom has announced the Special Collector’s Edition version of Street Fighter IV for Xbox 360 and PS3. It will release alongside the normal game on February 20, 2009, although it’s so far only been announced for Europe.

Along with the game itself, everything from the Special Collector’s Edition is snugly housed in a classic Street Fighter scene outer case!

The Street Fighter IV – Special Collector’s Edition includes:

* Limited edition figurines of all time favorite character Ryu and the all new character Crimson Viper, positioned within the familiar settings of the ‘crowded Chinese downtown’.
* A bonus disc containing a feature length HD quality anime movie, created specially for the launch of Street Fighter IV and a selection of the best game trailers to date.
* A mini strategy guide created in the style of a comic art book detailing the moves and biographies of four of the new characters to the series; Viper, Abel, El Fuerte and Rufus
* Exclusive downloadable game content

Gamers in the United States will not get both character figurines at the same time as in Europe. Rather, the Xbox 360 version will come with the Crimson Viper figurine (as well as the anime on DVD disc) and PS3 gamers will get the Ryu figurine (with the anime on Blu-ray disc).

Additionally, you can pre-order the game to snag a replica of Ryu’s headband.

How to download the Wii Speak Channel to talk in Animal Crossing City Folk


Wii Speak Microphone for WiiOne of the coolest features of Animal Crossing: City Folk for Wii (the newest game in the Animal Crossing series) is the fact that the game supports Nintendo’s new microphone accessory, the Wii Speak, which allows for voice chat when playing City Folk online with friends.

The microphone can either be bought bundled with the game (at an American msrp of $70 or just the game for $50) or separately (just the microphone) for $30. And eventually other games should support voice chat while playing online, but right now it’s just City Folk.

City Folk with Wii Speak BundleWhen you buy the microphone, packed inside the box is a 16-digit “Wii Download Ticket” code that allows you to download the “Wii Speak Channel” to your Wii Channels menu. The channel allows you to simply chat with an unlimited amount of friends in one of four available chat rooms. Each user is represented by their Mii who will lip-synch what they are saying. In addition the Wii Speak Channel allows you to leave friends audio messages as well as attach audio clips to stored photos. You can also share photo slid shows and comment on them with the Wii Speak Channel.

Give a look at how the channel works and how to download it in this video.

DS Lite gets Mario Red and Ice Blue colored limited-edition bundles for Black Friday


Mario Red Nintendo DS Lite bundle
The day after Thanksgiving might be known to holiday shoppers as “Black Friday,” but this year Nintendo is rewarding eager consumers with two brilliant splashes of color. On November 28, Nintendo will release a duo of limited-edition Nintendo DS bundles, each pairing a Nintendo DS game title with a hand-held system in a new color. The Mario Red Nintendo DS Lite bundle includes a red system emblazoned with a familiar M for Mario, and a copy of New Super Mario Bros. The Ice Blue Nintendo DS Lite bundle comes with a custom carrying case and the popular Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day. Each bundle sells at an MSRP of $149.99. To celebrate the new release on Black Friday, Amazon has lowered the price of both these bundles to $134.95.

Ice Blue Nintendo DS Lite bundle
Expected to rank high on holiday wish lists among first-time gamers and veteran players alike, the Mario Red and Ice Blue systems are the latest (limited-edition) additions to Nintendo’s rich palette of distinctive Nintendo DS Lite colors.

“Nintendo DS is both the most affordable and the most popular video game system in this generation,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “These limited-edition bundles make great gifts for first-time Nintendo DS players and collectors alike.”

The Mario Red and Ice Blue DS bundles won’t be the only stocking stuffers this season. Nintendo also aims to brighten the season for core and new gamers with its growing selection of Nintendo DS games. Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia and Kirby Super Star Ultra are already in demand among casual gamers and younger players. The new Personal Trainer: Cooking helps people become masterful chefs. And Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir keeps friends and families enthralled with a series of unique seek-and-solve puzzles.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed gameplay wrapped into one bundle of joy


Inside of me the hype I feel for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is slowly reaching a boiling point which hopefully will explode this summer. After so many subpar Star Wars games could this new title be a wonderful next-gen experience wrapped in Star Wars lore?

The only thing that could possibly worry me is could levitating enemies get a bit boring once the novelty has worn off?
