    What about MadWorld for the Wii? Bit of a different market direction for them, eh?

    Sadly, I'd have to agree with the GT5 being (yet again) delayed.

    Regarding cheap games - what's your take on free-to-plays?

    I think we'll see more and more free to plays coming along. They get better and better and are certainly bridging the gap.

    This year, loads of people can't afford to pay £40 for a game and then keep forking out for DLC. I think they'll be even more cheaper casual games this year and a rise in developers looking at free to play games.

    Halo 3 expansion (ODST ) will be the biggest selling game of the year
    I doubt that

    Rockstar will confirm that L.A. Noire won’t actually be a PS3 exclusive
    I was thinking this too, not in their best interests to lose money by leaving out such a large market.

    im liking thexbox 360 browser coming into place,
    also that you can download full games on marketplace but the problem been there is they are big files so unless you have an elite like myself your hard drive space will drop.
    thanks
