Little Big Planet 2 Delayed Until January 18th

Project Milo Cancelled???

“[Milo] is a technology demo that continues to exist, but right now it’s not a game that we’re planning to bring to market.”

That’s what Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg told Australian TV show Good Game in July concerning and don’t forget that ‘Milo’ was one of the highlights during Microsoft’s press release at E3.

But then Peter Moleneux said to Eurogamer last month concerning the creation of Project Milo, a simulated relationship between a young boy named Milo and the player…

“I wouldn’t be working on it if I didn’t hope that to be true, yes.”

Halo out of reach with disc read error

There is nothing quite as bad as finally receiving your very own copy a game that you’ve been waiting for ages to get your hands on, only then to find it doesn’t even work.

With over $200 million worth of copies of the last instalment of the Halo series, this has certainly made its mark in gaming history.

Forums dotted all over gaming websites (including Bungie as well) have been growing and growing with rather disgruntled gamers. Yet still, its been unclear as to the cause for this, though here at Gadget Venue, we think its more likely that a dodgy batch of games got out, seeing as such a huge number needed to have been produced in order to try and keep up with customer demand.
