Activision Closes Budcat, Issues Layoffs For California's QA Division

During its annual financial results conference call, game publisher Activision revealed a slew of movie and TV tie-ins games it plans to release in the next year, including games based on The Family Guy, Spider-Man, Bakugan and games tied in with the upcoming X-Men and Transformers films. A new title tied in with the Cabela's hunting franchise was mentioned as well. No details on these games were revealed, but when we hear more, we'll let you know.

Along with entertainment property tie-ins, Activision said it is working on a "new gaming universe" that will launch in the "back half of this year." No details on this new property were revealed, but Activision promised full details will be announced at the upcoming New York Toy Fair -- does that mean it's a kids' game? Smart money is on, "yes, it's a kids' game."

Lord of Arcana

My mother once told me that if I can't say anything nice about something, don't say anything at all. Luckily, this rule doesn't apply to video game reviewers. Gus Mastrapa played PSP RPG Lord of Arcana, and while it's not the worst game ever, there are better titles on which to blow your cash. From the review:

"This thin multiplayer offers little motivation for you to go through all the trouble. Games like this require an investment of time, energy and imagination, but before we can be expected to fork over those valuable resources its on game designers to make the first deposit. Lord of Arcana is dead broke in all departments."

Rock Band 3 Release Date, Pre-order Deals Announced

Rock Band 3 developer Harmonix confirmed today that it has laid off an unspecified number of full-time employees,

According to Joystiq, Harmonix said the layoffs were necessary to bring the developer “into alignment with our current product development plans.” What exactly Harmonix is referring to by “development plans” isn’t clear at this point, but evidently the "realignment" won't influence plans for upcoming DLC for RB3 and Dance Central.

Official figures haven’t been revealed yet, but it’s estimated that somewhere between 25-35 people were affected by the layoffs.

Expect more details as they become available.

How many times has Feedback had the game of the week be a freaking console?! We didn't quite do it with the Nintendo 3DS, although we've talked circles around that unit. But we're definitely doing it with the Sony PSP 2 / NGP / OMGWTFBBQ. And why not? Sony is finally packing everything you could want into their handheld, portable game system, but is it enough? Are we still going to want one at launch?

By Jason Schreier 
In the wake of last night's Next Generation Portable announcement, otherwise known as the PSP2, it's time we brushed up on the rocky history of Sony's journey through handheld systems. The PSP never quite gained the steam Sony imagined it would, selling 62 million units as of September 2010 – less than half of Nintendo's figures for its own handheld, the DS. And although games like Monster Hunter Freedom and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII have helped the system keep a foothold in the Japanese marketplace, Sony needs to make an undeniably strong showing with the NGP in order to keep up with its competitors.
The PSP has gone through four different incarnations over the past half-decade. Read on for a look at all of them, in our history of the PlayStation Portable. It's just beyond the break.
