InFamous next month? What the hell is going on? Is there a problem with the game or is it the mag's fault that it keeps getting pushed back?

EGM always does this bait and switch with their previews. They've teased FFXIII info a number of times and this is probably the second or third tease for Infamous.

Good GTA scores

Thanks! Can't wait to hear about NG2 and MGS4.

If the PS3 version of GTA4 out of the box is better, I'll probably go with it. I don't really care about DLC when I'll have moved on to other games.

Oblivion for PS3 didn't get confirmed until like two months before it came out. You never know sometimes.

@ Bioshock: PLEASE GOD BE TRUE. I want to play it so bad. Also, is does it say Bioshock 2 is 360/PC or is it supposed to be PS3 from the start this time?

@ Rock Band 2: New modes? Don't give a fuck. They better not be holding back good DLC to put it in this EXTREMELY UNNECESSARY sequel.

Just looking at scores, a little harsh on MK:Wii. The game is a lot of fun, and that's all that matters to me. I'd consider it a bit above average. I'll read the review when I get my magazine though, maybe they have some valid complaints.

If this turns out to be true, I don't think it's a good move by Sony to limit the distribution of the 80gb.
