    I just saw that. That's a pretty bad way to start a conference.

    I think what hurts the most, is that this from the BBC. Europe is where MS needs to gain some traction in and this won't help very much.

    I don't want this to turn into a flame war, so maybe we should move on to other news.

    Ninja Theory Next Game to be revealed at GDC ?

    At the Ninja Theory official site, some people noticed that there is a new banner showing a destroyed city in somewhat a futuristic setting... Could this be the new Ninja theory game? And will it be revealed at GDC?

    Ninja theory on the site homepage said:

    "Right now we're working on an exciting new concept that has got everyone we talk to buzzing. We can't say a lot except that it's going to be great to work on and should be even better to play! It'll take all the things we loved about Heavenly Sword and make them bigger and better than ever before."

    Hit the jump to see the banners.

    Another Banner can be found here:

    The RRoD thing is really embarrassing and totally uneceptable.
    Then again, like it say in Kotaku, all other GDC 360 are working fine, so, maybe, just maybe, it´s an "old" 360.

    Old or New Xbox 360 aside, it is kinda funny that one of the demos at GDC has the RRoD.

    Molyneux says,: "I know the exact date as to when Fable 2 will arrive in stores, its just that no one else knows the date." He states that itll DEFINITELY be out on 08, most likely near the holidays.

    I'm glad that Microsoft is finally showing thier 2008 line-up. With Fable 2, Ninja Gaiden 2, and Gears of War 2, it's certainly impressive :up:
