Thanks to Jim for putting this together.

Games Round-UpI'm a day late, but it was 83 degrees outside yesterday in Chicago. I was outside a lot. Can you blame me?

SONY

Sony Online Entertainment has closed three of it's studios laying off over 200 employees and FINALLY shitcanning The Agency.

Killzone 3 is getting it's first DLC map pack. It will include 2 new maps and cost you $4.99, unless you are a Playstation Plus member, then it is free.

SOCOM 4 is in open beta, but you better hurry it ends on the 13th.

EyePet and Friends is the sequel to EyePet.

Buy SOCOM 4 and get into a beta for Resistance 3.

NINTENDO


Majesco is going to try again to make an AR ghost game, this time for the 3DS.

I'm kinda sad The Agency has FINALLY been canceled, I had high hopes for it from the moment I saw it back in 07, but I kinda figured it'd be either vaporware or canceled eventually :(

Splinter Cell trilogy for ps3 sounds awesome. Fingers crossed that they update the games' control schemes and don't simply doll up the graphics.
