I hate it when I post some cool news only to find out later that it wasn’t true at all. Turns out the statements made by Shane Kim regarding a Halo animated series to be helmed by Peter Jackson were completely false. This inaccurate report spread throughout the web due to a “transcription” error. Apparently, Kim actually was talking about a “collaboration with Peter Jackson on the interactive series” rather than an “animated series.” This would more support the original notion that Jackson is working with Bungie on a game.

There’s an entertaining article from PC Gamer with their list of the Top Ten Must NOT Buy Games. So why would you want to read about a bunch of terrible games? Because it’s really really funny, that’s why. Gawk and marvel at the gaming abominations that were actually released in stores! Shudder in terror at the ineptitude that is Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing! The horror…the horror…

There is more to making a game than simply pixels and code. Legions of talented artists work around the clock to bring characters to life before the content makes it into the game. So, as a homage to these dedicated professionals, here is a little showcase of their work. I’m going to show you one or more pieces of concept art from a previously released game, and you will have to guess which title it is for. While there are no prizes for this quiz, you can impress your friends with your brilliant powers of deduction. So put on your detective hats, and off we go:

Earlier today, Stephany told you about a possible price drop for the 360. Now, Kotaku is reporting that in an email from David Hufford to fellow Microsoft employee John Porcato, Hufford says that that interview was a fair bit ago, and that there are indeed no plans to drop the price of the 360.

My post yesterday about the “Top 10 Reasons to Keep the PS3 Dream Alive” really sparked some heavy debate. It seems to me that most gamers are inclined to latch on to one system and think negatively about the others in the race. That attitude is simply not a great one to have. I know many Xbox Fanboys want to see the PS3 go down in flames and vice versa. The question I raise here is; what possible good could come out of one system winnig the next-gen war? The answer is obvious. If only one system rules, we’d have a monopoly and see game prices skyrocket. Right now, competition is driving prices down and encouraging quality game production. Right now, we should all want 3 systems to be in the mix of things. Too many people are judging the PS3 on early system sales. Trust me when I say this, the Sony PS3 will be a strong competitor in the future. I’ll be completely honest, I play the Xbox 360 more than any other system, but I refuse to allow myself to become a system loyalist. It’s better for us as gamers to keep our options and opinions open for the future. All it’s going to take is a couple awesome games for the PS3 to all of a sudden be popular. That’s simply how the world works. My original top ten list follows the break.10. You simply have to give it some more time.09. You cannot deny the power of the cell processor. I predict we will start seeing a great difference between PS3 performance and Xbox 360 performance as the next generation gets into full swing.08. Backward compatibility with the PS2 collection (one of the best console collections in history I might add).07. The price will eventually drop. I can’t say when, but it’s unavoidable.06. Can anyone say “Gran Turismo 5’?05. The PS3 is embracing the future of Bluetooth technology.04. PlayStation Home03. If Blu-Ray wins the next generation movie battle, the PS3 makes for a cheap Blu-Ray player02. Unchartered: Drake’s Fortune. This could be the big hit they are waiting for.01. Can anyone say “Gran Turismo 5’?
