Criterion working on NFS:Hot Pursuit and Dead Space 2 dated
June 15, 2010

turns out Criterion Games is working on the latest installment of the Need for Speed franchise 'taking it back to its roots'....they even named it Hot Pursuit AGAIN....i guess Criterion Games is 'taking it back to its roots' thing very seriously....

Dead Space 2 gets January 25th 2011 as the release date.....


Xbox 360 slim unveiled and other moments from Microsoft's Press Conference
June 15, 2010

it was a good thing that Microsoft's press conference got delayed by a good half hour which allowed me to catch the whole thing (almost)...missed about only 10 minutes of it.....the best news for me from the conference was the new slim 250 GB HDDD Xbox 360 for the same price i.e. $299 and being available from next week.....here's hoping that they fixed ALL issues with the new design so that i can be a console gamer once again.....plus in an Oprah Winfrey style move Microsoft gave each audience member a free slim Xbox 360....HOW I WISH I WAS THERE!!!!!!!!!!

Microsoft's E3 press conference starts in almost 12 hours.....i will be watching this one live (HOPEFULLY).....super excited about this event...i wish i could be there :(
