E3 fever, can you feel it? With only 28 days left, only the most minor of announcements are being made. But that doesn't mean that nothing is going on in the world of gaming. Oh, quite the contrary! Here's a recap of what's been going on at Kotaku week, including some next-gen madness!
The PlayStation 3 rumor mill was definitely... milling this week with price speculation spinning it nearly out of control. Fortunately, the PR folks stepped in to clear up the issue. Kids, don't expect real pricing details on the PS3 until (I'm guessing) fall.
Microsoft held a press conference in Japan last week to talk about the company's future releases, including new RPG's from Tri-Ace and, well, not much else. Stateside, the company welcomed Lionhead Studios to the collective, adding Peter M's uniqueness to its own.
Third-place console king Nintendo now has at least one official game for its Revolution console. The latest Game Informer has pics of Red Steel, the first person shooter from Ubisoft. Despite the Rev's underpowered specs, the shots look pretty damn good.
Now that Apple has released Boot Camp, Mac gaming is looking less like a barren wasteland and more like a dual-boot hassle dream! Videos of folks playing Oblivion and Half-Life 2 at (near) max detail gives potential MacBook Pro owners hope for the future.
Rockstar dropped some more screens and video of its Xbox 360 exclusive Rockstar Presents Table Tennis. Probably not the exclusive Microsoft was hoping for, but the thing looks damn fun regardless.
Ready to *gag* trick out your Oblivion steed? Now you can thanks to the Xbox Live Marketplace (and sadly the PC) with a mere 200 points (about a buck sixty). Is this what the world of gaming is coming to? Time to bail out! I really wonder how much those Oblivion mods are going to cost. I mean, with the topless mod being free, why should I pay for anything else?
Finally, some more grist for the rumor mill are these PSP shots that are allegedly the recently revealed PS1 emulator. Fake? Probably. Exciting? Yes!
