  • Crackdown 2 (Maybe) Scheduled For June

    UPDATE 5:17 PM: Microsoft has sent out an update proclaiming the June date as inaccurate. A Microsoft spokesperson said the actual release date would be revealed later. June still sounds about right, though. We didn't hear much about Ruffian Games’ Crackdown 2 at Microsoft's X10 press event today, but Microsoft did manage to slip a tidbit...

  • Crackdown 2 Coming In First Half of 2010

    I like Crackdown a lot, mainly for the obsessive collection of orbs. Don't ask me why, but I love collecting those damn things. I like collecting orbs so much, they call me Roy Orbison. While I can't be certain of the contents of Crackdown 2, I'm confident the 360 action game will contain more orbs -- precious, precious orbs. Oh, and it will be...
