Left 4 Dead 2 has become pretty infamous in the gaming world since it's announcement at E3, never before has a sequel to a game generated so much negative buzz for begin released "too early". Fans of L4D started a petition against purchasing the sequel, their argument begin that the original will be forgotten with no new content, and that most of the new features in the L4D2 could have been made available to part 1 through DLC. Well the petition which claimed to have several thousand signatures seems to have made little impact because Valve has just announced that the Left 4 Dead 2 has doubled the preorders that the original had.

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has recently said in an invertview with The Times that "I'm getting concerned about Sony; the PlayStation 3 is losing a bit of momentum and they don't make it easy for me to support the platform.

With both project natal on the Xbox 360 and Motion controller on the PS3 in the works one might think that Nintendo would start getting scared from the competition.

Analysts say PS3 price will drop in August

June 10th, 2009 | by Aykut Donmez

Several video game analysts are saying the Sony PS3 will drop in price in August to coincide with the release of Madden '10. This might seem like a random game to do the price drop on but the series sells extremely well for the PS3 so it makes sense. Some analysts are also suggesting August is a good time because of college students doing their school shopping, many will most likely flock to the price drop. How much the price will drop is another question, many are hoping for a $100, which would bring the console down to a reasonable $299. Sony didn't not hint at a price drop at E3 to the disappointment of many but it wasn't surprising being that Sony mentioned before the show that announcing a price drop at E3 would be "inappropriate"

Bungie has just announced a new Halo game called Halo Reach. There is no word on what type of game it is, but it will most likely take place during the events of one of the first major plot points in the Halo timeline: the fall of Reach. Reach being a planet inhabited by Humans, that was taken over by the covenant. What makes the battle of Reach so important is because it is here that the original group of Spartan Warriors were wiped out, leaving Master Chief as one of the only Spartans in left existence. The game is set to be released in Fall of 2010 so it will most likely be a fully fledged Halo experience
