This is the thread to post interesting video game news that you hear. If it's interesting enough (to me) then I will do a bit of research and post an official site news article about it.

If it's interesting (to me) and your post is so well-written that I'm left with no choice but to use your words, then I'll make sure you're credited with writing the article. But I'm not asking for that amount of effort. A heads up is enough.

Just an idea to keep that sidebar moving.

How about that time we won that thing and threw a party?


For us. For them. For you.

I personally don't find this story that interesting, but then I remember seeing a PSP-related article on HG recently (in fact, it's still on the sidebar). So hey, figure I might as well bring this up just in case.

PSP Go soon to be 50 bucks (or 10,000 yen or 40 euros) cheaper.

Edit: The UK will also get a price cut from November 1, £65 off. (Digital Spy)

South Korea is getting the next game in the Ghosts n' Goblins series:

It's going to be a side-scrolling action game with online gameplay. Apparently, the series' trademark of losing clothes as you take damage will be intact.

Two things of note (for me anyway).

Disgaea 4 will let you transfer some your saved game data from Disgaea 3.

Disgaea 4 will also have an online component where, after you build a pirate ship, you can battle other payers and possibly have them join/help you in battle.

Viacom selling Harmonix. Implications unclear over what's going to happen to the Rock Band (and Dance Central) franchises--for the time being, anyway. (source)

ZeniMax will probably buy them since they buy everybody else, like MachineGames and Tango Gameworks.

I don't know too much about ZeniMax, but can they afford to buy Harmonix? Viacom bought Harmonix for $175 million a few years back. I was thinking EA was maybe likelier, given that them and Harmonix already have a pretty good relationship.

ZeniMax owns Bethesda who just sold five million copies of Fallout: New Vegas. In 2008 Fallout 3 sold over 4 million copies in the first week, no idea how many have been sold overall so, yeah, I think they can manage a buy out.
