Turtle Beach Reveals Early 2013 Lineup

The annual tech industry Mecca that is the Consumer Electronics Show is well underway now, and Turtle Beach is there to show off its upcoming product lineup for the front half of 2013. A press release runs through the highlights, starting with a pair of multipurpose cans for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users.

The Q1-releasing Ear Force PX51 and XP510 are for Sony and Microsoft consoles, respectively, with built-in Bluetooth, virtual surround sound, dual band Wi-Fi (to cut down on interference), and a rechargeable battery that is good for an estimated 15 hours on a single charge. These are premium items, with a $269.99 price on the PS3 model and a $289.99 price on the Xbox 360 model (likely because of the need to pack in an additional Bluetooth dongle).

Xi3 Corporation is partnered with Valve Corporation on a pint-sized gaming PC that is designed to support Steam and its Big Picture Mode. It's not quite the Steam Box that you've all been waiting for, but that's really only because it isn't actually being called "Steam Box." This is most certainly a box o' Steam.

The press release from Xi3 is unfortunately light on hardware specs, only going as far as saying that it's built "for residential and LAN party computer gaming on larger high-def screens." The grapefruit-sized Xi3 Modular Computer chassis (pictured above) is the company's own design, but the gaming-specific model is described as a "development stage" product.

Black Ops 2 Revolution Map Pack Details Slip Out

Activision still hasn't officially confirmed the rumored Revolution map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but a now-removed Amazon listing makes the already likely content drop seem even more certain. It started with an alleged accidental posting of a DLC trailer of the Call of Duty mobile website, as reported by MP1st. Now there's this Amazon listing (via OXM UK) that runs through each piece of content in the pack.

The contents of the Amazon listing as OXM reports it line up precisely with the details revealed in allegedly leaked promo art that first tipped fans off to the fact that DLC was coming. You can continue to take all of this non-confirmation for what it's worth, but it certainl seems to be increasingly clear that the first Black Ops 2 is happening later this month.

Hit the jump for a rundown of the four multiplayer maps, one Zombies map, and added weapon as described by the removed Amazon listing.

The Walking Dead Screenshot Shambles Forth From Telltale Games

Telltale Games saw huge success in 2012 with the release of The Walking Dead as an episodic series, with the game now at more than 8.5 million individual episodes sold since launch. Company CEO Dan Connors shared the data point with the Wall Street Journal in a recent interview, adding that roughly a quarter of those sales are for iOS versions of the game.

The company's biggest sales months for the game were in November and December of last year, thanks largely to the game's first season coming to an end, the end-of-year award accolades, and the conclusion of the first half of the AMC TV series' third season. There's unfortunately no additional word on Telltale's second season plans beyond Connors' brief mention that it is indeed the plan.

Give it up once again for Telltale Games and The Walking Dead. And for those who haven't gotten around to playing it yet: seriously, what are you people thinking? Get on that!

2013 Games Preview: Dead Space 3

Posted January 7, 2013 - By Adam Rosenberg

2013 Games Preview: Dead Space 3Release Date: February 5, 2013

Developer: Visceral Games

Publisher: Electronic Arts

Platform(s): PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Windows

Necromorphs are bad news, always, but their newly expanded ranks are only one of the worries you'll have to deal with in Visceral Games' Dead Space 3. Isaac Clarke's latest adventure doesn't have to be a solo one, with newcomer Sgt. John Carver coming along for those who play through the story in co-op. It's one of several changes that aim to offer a more accessible Dead Space game for series neophytes.

What We Know:

Dead Space 3 picks up two months after the events of the previous game, with Isaac Clarke being brought in by Sgt. John Carver and his superiors to help investigate a 200-year-old Necromorph infestation on the icy world of Tau Volantis. The Necros were apparently well on their way to destroying everything when the infestation just... stopped. Now it's up to Clarke and Carver to figure out what happened and see if there's anything that can be used to fight the Necromorph threat in the present day.

Valve's Steam Logo

It seems more and more like Valve's rumored Steam Box is matter of "when" rather than "if," and this latest hint of the company's future in hardware only reinforces that. Valve electronics engineer Ben Krasnow reportedly gave a talk at the EHSM 2012 conference in late December where he revealed a few Steam Box details, according to German website Golem.de (via PCGamer).

According to Krasnow, the Steam Box will be a Linux machine. The news shouldn't come as much of a surprise given Gabe Newell's concerns about Windows 8 and Valve's work so far on developing a Linux version of Steam. Krasnow also let slip the news that a more official reveal will happen sometime in 2013, either during/close to GDC in March or at E3 in June. 

007 Legends

Something seems to be up with Activision's 007 games, as Blood Stone, Quantum of Solace, and the recently released 007 Legends all seem to have been removed from various online stores. The removal was first spotted on Steam by neogamr.net (via Joystiq), though a deeper look reveals that even Activision's own online store no longer sells the three games.

This only seems to apply for digitally distributed PC downloads, as you can still find physical copies of the games at your retailer of choice. As others have suggested, it's possible that Activision's rights to the 007 license lapsed, though that would be surprising given that 007 Legends was a fall 2012 release. We've reached out to Activision PR and will update this post when we have an official response.

UPDATE: It turns out that there's a bit more to this footage than we originally thought. While the above footage is indeed from The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, it's not edited together as an officially released trailer. What you're seeing above is a fan edit of footage that premiered on IGN's Up At Noon last week, as a PR rep explained to Giant Bomb. So don't judge this early look too harshly.

ORIGINAL POST: Later this year, Activision will publish The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, based on the hit AMC TV series, and developer Terminal Reality is kicking off the new year with an early look at some gameplay. The context-free clip montage focuses on highlighting the stealthier side of the game, leaving any nods in the direction of the Dixon brothers-focused story for future previews.

The idea of The Walking Dead as a first-person SHOOTER is alarming if you're a fan of either the comic or the TV series (or both), so showing off this less action-focused material in the debut gameplay trailer is a smart move on Activision's part. Does this footage sell you though? What's your excitement level for Survival Instinct after seeing this footage for the first time?

2013 Games Preview: DmC: Devil May CryRelease Date: January 15, 2013

Developer: Ninja Theory

Publisher: Capcom

Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Windows (on 1/25)

The son of Sparda is back! Capcom's veteran mercenary and demon hunter is setting out on an all-new adventure in just a few weeks from now, in DmC: Devil May Cry. Ninja Theory, a newcomer to the franchise, is set to deliver a rebooted take on Hideki Kamiya's creation. Early looks at the game have shown a lot of promise, with a combat system that appears to be just as deep and as complex as fans of the series would expect.

What We Know:

DmC: Devil May Cry isn't the sort of full-on reboot that aims to erase the past. Dante's earlier adventures still exist within the series canon while Ninja Theory's tale picks up in a parallel universe. Our younger, shorter-haired Dante kicks off his adventure in Limbo City, an urban landscape that seems normal at first... until the demon overseers that run the place start sending all manner of nasty critters off to kill Dante.

Winnie The Pooh Flash Game Confounds Reddit

Winnie the Pooh's Home Run Derby. That's the title of the Flash game that has sent Reddit users into hysterics. The charming little time-waster sees plays attempting to smack dingers as Disney's lovable Pooh bear, but the extreme level of difficulty has produced some comical responses, such sa the one above posted on the bluegartr.com forums.

The Reddit headline sums up the situation pretty succinctly: "4chan discovered this kids game last night, called Winnie the Pooh Home Run Derby. No one has been able to beat the game completely. Give it a try if you want, but be prepared to rage quit." Do you dare try it for yourself? Check out Winnie the Pooh's Home Run Derby right here.

Pre-orders are now open for NECA's beautiful Skyhook replica from BioShock Infinite. The handheld device is the first weapon you receive in the game, also doubling as a tool used to zip between the floating islands of Columbia along an elaborate rail system. The replica won't allow you to do any of that, but it's still really sweet.

Customers in the United States can place their pre-orders now for the $79.99 item, according to the official Facebook page (via MTV Multiplayer). You can see the thing in action in the video above. NECA is the same company behind the Portal gun replica, as you probably know. Expect this item to disappear just as quickly.

Tomb Raider

The rumors are true: Crystal Dynamics' upcoming Tomb Raider reboot will include a multiplayer mode for the first time in the life of the franchise. The news is confirmed by OXM US, with the next issue's cover story focusing entirely on how this new feature fits into the game.

The earlier rumor described a team-based setup that pits Lara Croft's fellow shipwreck survivors against "Yamatai's scavengers" in "a variety of modes." We now know that the multiplayer content is the work of Eidos Montreal, the studio behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The rest of the details will follow when the latest issue of OXM hits newsstands on January 8. Tomb Raider arrives two months later, on March 5, 2013.

Black Ops 2 'Revolution' DLC May Have Been Outed

You might have missed this if you were caught up in New Year's Eve revelry: the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, called Revolution, will reportedly arrive on January 29, 2013. Activision has yet to confirm anything officially, but a Reddit user shared what appears to be some real-deal promo art, as you can see above.

Assuming the posted image is accurate, it looks like Revolution will add four new multiplayer maps (Hydro, Downhill, Grind, Mirage), a new zombie map, and -- in a series first for DLC, a new weapon, the Peacekeeper SMG. The title of the zombie map -- Die Rise -- appears to be a play on the title of the World at War Zombies map, Der Reise.

It's not official until Activision confirms it of course, but late-January certainly seems like the right time for the latest Call of Duty game's first DLC.
