GTA IV Xbox 360
DLC This Summer?
One big factor Microsoft was counting on was that gamers would choose an Xbox
360 over a PlayStation 3 because its platform’s version of GTA IV would come
with the promise of exclusive DLC. That downloads may arrive sooner than
expected. According to comments made by GTA’s infamous radio show host Lazlo,
the Xbox 360 could see the DLC as soon as this summer, while also adding that
the PS3 might receive something of its own too.
GTA IV Freezing on
While the majority of gamers who have picked up Grand Theft Auto IV are
reporting nothing but an exceptional gaming experience, not all is perfect.
Some are reporting the game is freezing during early cutscenes, where the game’s

Duke Nukem Forever
Seen by Outside Eyes
Even though it’s still the butt of many vapourware jokes, 3DRealms assures
everyone that Duke Nuken Forever is still a real product in development. To
help prove this, the developer invited Shacknews to view
actual gameplay of DNF running on actual computer hardware, showing gameplay
scenarios, mechanics, and environments. “We actually got to see...environmental
puzzles and interactivity, a host of finished weapons, the existence of an
in-game forklift, and plenty of heads and arms being blown off,” wrote
Shacknews owner Steve “sCary” Gibson. “We both confidently agree that after
seeing this demonstration, Duke Nukem Forever is looking great, and will easily
stand apart from the crowd in both visual and gameplay styles.”

the PlayStation 3, be it on Guitar Hero III or Rock Band. The handy accessory
retails for $19.99.
