Portal creator heading into Dark Void territory

When it came out in 2007 Valve Software's Portal amazed and delighted the critics and gamers. It took a simple enough concept (use a gun that opens a wormhole and creates two in and out doors), establish a reason to use the portal gun (a mad computer wants to test you and then kill you) and then let you experiment away. Yeah, so simple nobody else had come up with Portal.

Modern Warfare 2 makes millions

When it came out last Tuesday, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 swiftly became the runaway bestseller that everyone thought it would be. Now the game's publisher and owners of Activision stock are beginning to see what kind of quarter it will be for them with the sales figures from the game's first day in release: Modern Warfare 2 earned $310 million dollars on its first day alone in North America and the United Kingdom.

U2 open to making as much money as The Beatles: Rock Band

Yeah. When The Beatles: Rock Band came out and sold a bajillion copies on 09-09-09, I figured that it would be inevitable that every rock band would get asked if they wanted to cash in on the video game rock star craze. Large sums of cash + vain ego-driven wish fulfillment = is U2 in the house?

Dig Dug: The Scary Movie

Video game movies are the easy target for parodies; after all, when the majority of real films based on games are so awful (remain standing in the corner of the room Uwe Boll!), you can expect to see people mocking the absurdity of the phenomena. Yet here we are and Universal has an Asteroids movie in development which only goes to prove that reality is stranger than fiction.

Nigeria demands apology from Sony over PS3 ad

The Sony Corporation had to make an apology to the Nigerian government for a recent ad promoting its PlayStation 3. The reason? In the commercial a spokesman compares the rumors about the PS3's price drop to unfounded rumors on the internet. "You can't believe everything you read on the internet," the Sony ad-man says. "Otherwise I'd be a Nigerian millionaire by now." Apparently the government officials in Nigeria spend more time watching TV than doing something about the real criminals in their country.

2.5 million reasons to get Batman: Arkham Asylum

Since its release on August 25 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, and last week's release for the PC, more than 2.5 million copies of Batman: Arkham Asylum have shipped to retailers. That's a staggering number for a title from a new developer (Rocksteady Games in England made the game for Warner Bros. Interactive) but when you consider that nearly all superhero video games have faired poorly with critics and consumers alike, it makes Arkham Asylum's success all that more prominent.

Stormtroopers and Rebels blast each other in Call of Duty 4: Galactic Warfare trailer

Two years ago this fall Activision released Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, bringing the action to this first-person shooter franchise to reflect what combat is like in the present day. No one predicted that CoD 4 would be as big as it turned out to be, selling over 13 million console copies and even forcing Activision to spin-off the Modern Warfare games so that they now exist in their own franchise (Modern Warfare 2 hits stores on November 10, 2009.)

But for the PC mod community, CoD 4 exists so that innovative coders can think up cool campaigns that would never be able to exist legally. Case in point: a German-based CoD community called blackMonkeys is programming a mod campaign called Call of Duty 4: Galactic Warfare that replaces the Marines and guerillas from the original game with Imperial Stormtroopers and Rebel soldiers. The group has released a trailer that shows the work they've done and with the action set on Luke Skywalker's homeworld of Tatooine. The gameplay has got that CoD 4 look to it but the Star Wars theme just geeks things up to the next level.

Court clears the way for Warner Bros. to buy Midway Games

The path has been cleared for Warner Bros. Entertainment to buy up near all of the assets of bankrupt Midway Games, creator of the Mortal Kombat game franchise.

Even at $33 million bucks, Warners got fire sale prices on these IPs.

Next gen games could cost $60 million to make

If you keep track of escalating budgets for Hollywood films then hearing a price tag of $200 million or more isn't that shocking anymore. However, in the world of video games, where an average Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 title can cost between $20 million to $30 million dollars, hearing speculation from one of the industry's leaders that the cost of making a game could be doubled for the next generation systems might give some developers a hammering heart.
