Facebook Hires Sony PS3 Hacker

George Hotz, the 21-year-old Sony hacker sued for breaking into the PlayStation 3 console, is now on the payroll at Facebook.

Facebook's hiring of Hotz, known in the hacker community as Geohot, was first reported by the technology blog TechUnwrapped, and later confirmed via Twitter by Gabe Rivera, founder of tech news Web site Techmeme .

Facebook has not disclosed why Hotz was hired, but The Washington Post reported Hotz will be working on the social networking giant’s impending iPad app.

Hotz first started making a name for himself in 2008 by jailbreaking the iPhone, which untethers the device from its carrier and allows it to run on any network, as well as run apps outside of Apple (NSDQ:AAPL)’s App Store.
Yeah. Hack a bunch of shit, then get a job at FACEBOOK. I hope he turns his back on them.

Well. I feel like asking a question to you guys.

I'm a huge game nut. I love them ever since I was able to hold a controller.
But lately I kinda stopped playing them,
and if I DO play one then I get bored quickly.

I was just wondering if any of you guys had the same thing?

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon gameplay

It's amazing looking, the cinematic scenes are looking good, And the eject seat at the end was a surprise

Tribes: Ascend Will Be Free, Certainly Tribal

Now I thought we had already posted about Tribes: Ascend being free-to-play. Perhaps it was simply in one of my prophetic game-news dreams, because I can’t find it. BUT ANYWAY, it is going to be free-to-play, and to celebrate that Hi-Rez have revealed the game in action. You can check it out below. It certainly looks like a new Tribes game to me, which is promising! Looking forward to playing this. I will be the dude at 0:26. (Although the wider picture makes Firefall look a lot more interesting.)Tribes: Ascend is apparently out later this year at some point.

About time they made a sequel! SO hyped for this!!

EA Sports Won’t Say MMA’s Dead, but Won’t Say It’s Getting a Sequel, Either

To many, the UFC's acquisition of the competing fight series Strikeforce in March spelled the end of EA Sports MMA. While EA Sports' chief of development did not say that a sequel is in development, he did not say the label was quitting the sport altogether.
"A world where we're not involved in fighting is a world I'd rather not think about," Andrew Wilson told Kotaku. "That said, what goes on in the sport, and what's gone on between the UFC and Strikeforce, certainly has an impact on what we can do in the space."
Strikeforce, as the principal licensor of EA Sports MMA brought some visibility and legitimacy to the project, although both were overshadowed by the dominant UFC brand and its THQ game, which had a breakout hit in 2009 and published a sequel before EA Sports MMA hit shelves.
What do y'all think? I like the MMA games, wouldn't like for it to die.
Those games and the fight night round games are getting better each year.

According to new developer 343 Industries, the changes aren't just aesthetic. Chief will demonstrate some new behaviour as well, but not without reason.

"There's some story behind his new look," explained studio boss Frank O'Connor in an E3 interview. "There are specific reasons why he looks the way he does and why some of his behaviours have changed. We'll see in good time."

Halo 4 was made official during Microsoft's E3 press conference this month when it was labelled "the dawn of a new trilogy".

According to O'Conner, some details on Halo's 4 plot - maybe even hints on Master Chief's new mental breakdown - will be sprinkled throughout Halo Combat Evolved: Anniversary.

Does anyone have problems with Catwoman being in the game? No? Thought so!

The Witcher 2 announced for Xbox 360

At an event in California today CD Projekt Red has announced that The Witcher 2 will be coming to the Xbox 360.  Rumors have been circulating ever since CD Projekt let on that they would be making an announcement concerning consoles today, and especially since The Witcher 2 has been experiencing good reviews and a fairly rabid fan base.  Though The Witcher 2 is known by PC gamers for its graphical prowess, CD Projekt is stating that the graphical fidelity will remain unchanged in the move. We’ll have to see that for ourselves when we finally get our copy.
The Witcher 2 for Xbox 360 will be available later this year.  A trailer for the console release is below.

Oooh. Very exciting news, Though no fun for PS3 owners. I feel your pain.

Serious Sam 3: BFE gameplay trailer

What else would you expect from the debut trailer of the new Serious Sam 3: BFE other than Sam going proper mental with big guns pointed at even bigger monsters.

We're pleased that we were not surprised by this. Serious Sam 3 sticks to doing what it does best - throwing the player in at the deep end with giant beasts charging at them with only a gun and constant strafing as defense.

The game runs on an all new Sam Engine 3, which is looking much better than previous iterations, and developer Croteam promises that battles with enemies will diversify beyond the basic arena-based swarm attacks in previous games.

What's 'BFE' stand for? It's gone unconfirmed, so you can use your own imagination.

It's out in Summer this year on Xbox and PC, Is looking really good!

THQ hinted at the sequel to Vigil Game’s breakout hit almost immediately after the success of the first title, but we knew little about Darksiders II until now.
Fans of the first Darksiders are already familiar with Vigil’s fiction – the eternal war that rages between the forces of Heaven and Hell. With Darksiders II, Vigil looks to deliver a richer experience as players  explore more dungeons, talk with a variety of NPCs, and experiment with a detailed loot system. The horseman War has been sidelined, so it’s up to his brother, Death, to travel through the world of the Abyss and attempt to restore humanity after its destruction during the Apocalypse.

Subscribers should be receiving their issues after the first day of E3. After you finish reading our cover story, keep checking back with our Darksiders II hub throughout the month, since we'll have plenty of updates that delve deeper into the experience Vigil is crafting for Darksiders II.
In addition to our 10-page cover story on Darksiders II, the July issue of Game Informer includes an in-depth first look at Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIII-2, our hands-on impressions of Sony’s NGP hardware and its early games, and an extensive preview section featuring games like BioShock Infinite, Mass Effect 3, and Batman: Arkham City.

Yes! Playing as Death himself must be AWESOME.
