There we go:

"Best Console Game
Gears of War
(Epic Games / Microsoft Games Studio for Xbox 360)"

"Best Action Game
Gears of War
(Epic Games / Microsoft Games Studio for Xbox 360)"

Sony got owned big time and Killzone 2 has never been seen again. Go out and buy a 360 now and Gears of War at the end of this year. It'll blow your mind as it did at the E3

Let me guess TheMART is a 360 fan. Considering that developers have had final development kits for the 360 for almost a year and Sony developers where just recieving thier final kits, I would say Sony did pretty good. Infact MS had 2 games win 3 awards and Sony had 2 games win 2 awards. So MS only got one award more then Sony. I wonder if they had given best console game award to one of the 2 Sony winning games and I said MS got owned if you would you agree? Some how I doubt it so forgive me if I say Sony did not get owned. Had Sony only gotten one and MS 4 or 5 then yeah I would agree Sony got owned. A score of 3 to 2 with a years head start on final development kits is not owned. :P

As for Killzone 2, did you ever think they might be holding that one back to be shown at the TGS in September to build excitement for the release in November? What if it turns out to be as good or better then GoW and it also a launch title? Now I am not saying that this will happen, but it could, and it would be a pretty smart move by Sony if they can pull it off. It might be why they bought out the studio designing the game so they could have the control needed to pull something like that off.

The 360 is a good console and GoW is a very impressive game and something fans and MS should be very proud of. Same goes for Mass Effect.

If a 360 owner never bought any other game besides these two, it would still be VERY worth it. And yet, there is still so much more goodness coming. Good job MS.

Actually, PC owned the show if you want to down to it. Both M$ and Sony have good games coming out and it is a little early to say That Sony is out. Most of their Games they showed were early and new IP's that no one has heard of. And for people to sit here and say that sony won't have any good games and M$ will is nonsence. Plus Sony had 2 games on the list and the system not even out yet. I have a 360 and it's great but to say it will have all or even most of the good games is just stupid.

"Set aside your potty humor for a sec (Nintendo's Wii wins "Best Hardware"? Too easy...)"

I'm sorry but I can't set it aside. Hardware is exactly what the Wii doesn't have! It has innovation and attracts non-gamers because it looks fun. That doesn't mean though that the hardware is better than the PS3's or the 360's. What a joke. Everyone says the PS3 and 360 are just specs in comparison to the Wii. And somehow, they manage to give the specs award to neither of the two systems. It boggles the mind (and the controller is not "hardware"!).

Um buddy if you read the story, Microsoft won 8 awards, but hey nice try...

Red Dead Redemption 1 Isn't As Good As People Remember It To Be

RDR 1 was a great game, but the lack of screen time for some characters, boring horse riding, and lack of mission variety takes away the fun at times.

Feels like one of those "10 HARSH realities of Re-watching" articles

I love how it seems a extreme few remember that red dead redemption is red dead revolver 2.

red dead revolver now that is rough red dead redemption for its time was groundbreaking and it still has way better cover system/dlc/mp content then red dead 2.

I remember all the bugs the game had day one like donkey lady so dam funny

RDR1 is a legendary game!!!

Really how to cope with a slow news day…

Junk article. Game was dope and still is. The swimming part sucks though.

just_looken7h ago

It does but the game was made originally for ps2 back after san andreas so for the dev window and timeline it makes sense.

-Foxtrot43m ago

I liked it a bit better because I didn’t think it had many “small nitpicky” things RDR2 had that on its own meant nothing but when a lot built up it was annoying. For example getting off your horse and you had to reselect your weapons again or walking around the camp slowly. None issues but built up with others sometimes it was a little frustrating at times.

Meet The Solo Dev Whose Sega Rally Tribute Could Become An Official Sequel

When the first footage of Over Jump Rally appeared online, it rightly caused quite a stir. Created using Unreal Engine 5, it offered a tantalizing glimpse of what a modern-day Sega Rally could look like, complete with super-realistic car models, breathtaking environments and – of course – the trademark Sega Blue Sky.

Well done and great potential for a tribute.

Hey Dev, would you happen to be a fan of Skies of Arcadia? Lol
