Gran Turismo 5 has been delayed yet again, which means it will miss it’s November release date. Though fans shouldn’t be too distraught as Polyphony Digital state the game will still be released this year. But knowing the Gran Turismo series, it could still be a long time until we see this game.

Sorry about the recent downtime folks. The company that hosts our servers has been having an issue recently with one of their RAID cards. As a result, we have lost a couple of days worth of posts. Don’t fear! No one like old news anyways. We will be back to normal come Monday afternoon.

On a lighter note, did anyone watch the hockey game yesterday? That was definitely the best game of stick-puck I have ever seen!

You know that annoying firmware update that Sony releases once in a while that requires you to be a technical genius… wait, it’s not really that difficult at all, it takes about 5 minutes and is free. But get this, a Best Buy in the US is charging the extremely low price of $30 for the same service. Just check out the photo above. What has happened to our world?

I don’t know about you, but I love those crazy Rabbids which first made their appearance in Rayman Raving Rabbids for the Wii. The characters have become so successful that Ubisoft announced it is working with Aardman Animations (Wallace & Gromit) on a pilot for a show starring the characters.

“The not-so-subtle humor of the Rabbids has made them into icons in and beyond video games. Aardman perfectly understands that humor and we are extremely excited to be working with them to bring the Rabbids to a new medium and a new audience,” said Ubisoft’s managing director at its French studios, Xavier Poix.

Aardman’s head of broadcast Miles Bullough also seems to be a big fan of the Rabbids, “When the opportunity arose to work with Ubisoft on the Rabbids we leapt at it, we absolutely love the characters and can’t wait to help bring them to a television audience.”

It doesn’t matter which generation of gaming we are in, there will always be cheaters. Blizzard recently announced that it had banned “over 5,000 StarCraft 2 players who were in violation of the Battle.net Terms of Use for cheating and/or using hack programs while playing.”

It seems only fair as they gave this warning just a couple weeks ago, “We strongly recommend that you avoid using any hacks, cheats, or exploits. Suspensions and bans of players that have used or start using cheats and hacks will begin in the near future.”

It doesn’t stop there as Blizzard is determined to get everybody who is cheating, “Maintaining a stable, safe, and secure online-gaming experience for legitimate players is a top priority for us, and we’ll be continuing to keep watch on Battle.net and take action as needed.”
