EA: No PS3 Mass Effect 2 For You

Some of the rumors you  may have heard about Mass Effect 2 coming to the Playstation 3 are null and void, according to Electronic Arts. The space action RPG was listed as a PS3 release by Australian retailer Game and on EA's Russian Web site, but the publisher told Eurogamer that the latter of those listings is bogus. Same goes for an EA Russia listing for Left 4 Dead 2 on the PS3. Now, that...

Ideally, a video game compilation tides people over for some related game down the road, but that may not be the case for Sony's God of War Collection. 1UP reports that both Gamestop and Target posted spring 2010 release dates for the compilation, which will include God of War and God of War II on Blu-ray. Now, I'm seeing that Gamestop has restored the release date of November 17, 2009, while...

The difference between me and a stock trader: When I start an unsubstantiated rumor (which I don't), the stock market doesn't so much as wiggle a toe.

It's unsubstantiated chatter, but it's out there." Meanwhile, an unnamed London-based...

Good old, reliable, blurry photographs from retailers. They were right about the Playstation 3 Slim and the Xbox 360 Elite, so perhaps there's some truth to the latest sighting of an impending Wii price cut. It appears from the Toys 'R' Us flyer above that the Wii's price will fall from $249.99 to $199.99 some time his month. Last week, Kotaku saw an early Wal-Mart ad that indicated a price...

Microsoft may not be talking about it, but the growing evidence that the Xbox 360 Elite will replace the lower-tiered Pro model is getting hard to ignore. The latest exhibit is a photo of Xbox 360 Elites on store shelves, including with comparison shots to the low-end Arcade model (the same thing happened to Arcade models a few weeks ago). Note that a column for the Xbox 360 Pro is missing...

All Quiet From Microsoft on Xbox 360 Pricing, SKUs

Microsoft's GamesCom press conference came and went without so much as a hint on changes to Xbox 360 pricing or models, passively debunking rumors that preceded the show. It was widely believed, thanks to Kotaku's photos from Gamestop employees and Ars Technica's word from a reliable mole, that Microsoft would scrap the mid-range Xbox 360 Pro. In it's place, the Xbox 360 Elite, which...
