EA have just let us know that the recently delayed Godfather II game will now be released in April. The game was originally set to release around the end of this month, but was delayed in order to give the game more of a push marketing-wise. With all of the other massive titles coming out at that time (Killzone 2, Steet Fighter IV e.t.c.), I think the game might have been missed by many. I think an April release will help the game a hell of a lot, good business decision from EA there.

Remember those screens we posted a little while back showing a Paradise City Police Car? Sure you do. Well, Criterion have announced today that a new ‘Cops & Robbers’ mode is coming for Burnout: Paradise.

According to the “Criterion Games Network” (viewable on the PS3 and PC versions),this DLC will arrive after all of the other previously announced packs (excluding the island). It’s apparently “dedicated to bringing the thrills and spills of cops and robbers car chases in Paradise City.”. Sounds good, hopefully we’ll get more info soon. Nice job guys.

After about, well, almost forever Axl Rose finally released, the highly anticipated album, Chinese Democracy. And this spring you’ll be able to play it in Rock Band. GNR already have one of their latest tracks in the game, ‘Shacklers Revenge’, but now you’ll be able to play it in all of it’s…mediocrity. Ok I don’t like it, but for those who do it’s there. Enjoy.

For those who didn’t know, Pearl Jam’s album Ten is coming to Rock Band next month and you might just get more if Best Buy have anything to do with it. An offer from the american big box retailer has surfaced which says that those who pre-order the re-release of the album, due out March 24th, will get a code for three more Pearl Jam tracks for Rock Band. Those tracks are:

  • Brother
  • Alive (Drop In The Park Concert Version)
  • State Of Love And Trust (Drop In The Park Concert Version)

So it looks like Pearl Jam fans might be forced to pick the album up if they want as much Pearl Jam as they can get. There’s no indication if these tracks will be coming for a price, but I suspect they will do at some point. Either way, if you want them early pre-order the remaster of Ten.

EA Delays Godfather II by Anthony Barlow

As Ad’s kindly commented before EA have delayed the release of The Godfather II. The game was slated for release towards the end of the month, but has now been pushed back to the April-June time frame. EA’s John Riccitiello has said that he felt the game needed more of a marketing push and that EA needed to generate more excitement for the game. Marketing wasn’t the only fault though, Riccitiello also blamed the 2008 ‘holiday’ season, saying:

“To be honest with you, we looked at the title, title feels very solid It will appeal to its audience well and it was likely to ship, as we had originally planned it, into a very cluttered, price reduced excess inventory channel both in North America and Europe in a heavy competitive environment. We didn’t think it would get its best shot at success in [fiscal] Q4.”

Either way the game does look good. Although, I do recall that the game was meant to ship around the same time as Killzone 2. Could this have something to do with the delay? I’m guessing we’ll never know.
