Green Day: Rock Band Debut Trailer »

Hey Green Day fans, grab a pen and flip your calendars to June, because I have some mark-inducing info for you. That’s right. Green Day: Rock Band now has an official release date – June 8.

Similar to Harmonix and MTV Games’ previous The Beatles: Rock Band, the Green Day version will feature tons of unlockable band images and nearly an hour of rare and unreleased interviews and performances.

The game will include 47 tracks spanning the band’s career from "Brain Stew" to "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," each of which will be playable with three-part harmonies. Also, all of the songs will be exportable to Rock Band 1, 2, and 3. The Green Day tracks that are already available as DLC will be playable in the new game and will include all of the new gameplay and presentation elements.

Green Day: Rock Band will run you $59.99 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and $49.99 on Wii. There will also be a special edition that will feature “Special packaging,” track export key and the six DLC tracks already available, all for $69.99.

Motion Fighter

The world's introduction to the PlayStation Move title The Fight: Lights Out came only a day ago at the Sony GDC press conference, so these screenshots and the first previews are all we know about the game. According to Patrick Klepek:

"The game's making your movements look a hell of a lot cooler than how you'll look to people watching you play a game like The Fight: Lights Out, but in the moment, you can't help but feel cool. That's especially true when you have someone in a headlock and you're fist pumping (hmm, do I smell a Jersey Shore game?) an endless stream of punches into your enemy's bloodied face."

Screenshots For Sports Champions

I have a feeling a lot of PlayStation 3 owners will be playing PlayStation Move-enable game collection Sports Champion when it launches. This is total speculation, but it could be that Sony plans for the title to be as ubiquitous as Wii Sports was when Nintendo's motion system launched.

Anyway, check out this gallery for a look at some of the different games Sports Champion will feature.


GDC 2010 Screenshots For PlayStation Move Title The Shoot

Sony’s GDC 2010 press conference included a video montage of some of the upcoming titles that will include PlayStation Move motion control support. One of the games that appeared ever so briefly during the presentation was a game called The Shoot. Not much is known about the game at this point, but it appears to involve participating in various movie scenes and meeting scene-specific challenges.

While we wait for Sony to drop some new details, head over to our slick new The Shoot photo gallery to get a sense of what this PS Move title brings to set.

Among the many titles on display during GDC, few are nabbing the spotlight quite like Mafia II. We got a glimpse of it during the show, and our very intrepid Editor-in-Chief Adam Sessler interviewed members of the team, including Director of Creative Production, Jack Scalici. Scalici offers plenty of insight into the ways that the team has worked to depict the world of Mafia II, from the post-World War II 1940s through the prosperous 1950s. Check it out below!

GDC 2010 Preview: Split/Second

Split/Second is one of those games that you just can’t help but want to see more of, because what it brings to the table is so inherently appealing that it’s impossible to resist (Fast cars. Explosions. Come on!). But don’t take my word for it. Andrew Pfister took the game for a bridge-collapsing spin during GDC 2010, and here’s what he had to say:

"The races in Split/Second are extremely tense – in my demo race, at least, the pack stayed together throughout most of the course, trading paint and destructive Power Play attacks (smaller explosions that you can set off after accruing enough power)."

Andrew's full preview can be viewed right here. More GDC info can be found at our GDC 2010 content mothership.

OnLive Gaming Service GDC 2009

When it was unveiled at last year's Game Developers Conference, OnLive made big waves and had everyone talking. After 12 months of speculation about the service, MCV revealed details on the service's release date and subscription model. According to the report, the service will launch on PCs and Macs on June 17 with a monthly subscription fee of $14.95. EA, Ubisoft, Take-Two, THQ, and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will support OnLive with titles from their library of games. The details were also made available during an event at GDC earlier this morning.

OnLive COO Mike McGarvey (no relation to yours truly, but nice name!) provided some details on what you can expect regarding game access, saying, "Individual titles will be available for purchase or rental on an a la carte basis. Specific game pricing, including rentals,purchases and loyalty programs, will be announced prior to the consumer launch event at E3. We’ll also be announcing additional loyalty and discount programs for consumers in the coming months."

MCV also indicated that more details on game titles and pricing for purchase will become available closer to the June launch. For now, the article states that McGarvey confirmed that Assassin's Creed II, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and Metro 2033 will launch with OnLive.

So, there you have it. I find the prospect of OnLive intriguing, and it's telling that in light of Ubisoft's controversial DRM practices on PC, they're throwing a lot of weight behing the service. If you can play games on your PC without lag or concern for download times, will you give OnLive a spin?
