Sony Online has announced they will be shutting down servers for a few of there online games because not to many people still play and it will save them money on servers they can use of other or newer released games. This effect takes place on June 30th, so if you still one of the hardcore fans who loves playing online against a few or even on of your friends you have a bit under 2 months to get your fix, the games affected by this are:
Destruction Derby Arenas
Syphon Filter Omega Strain
This is Football 2004
This is Football 2005
Twisted Metal: Black Online
World Tour Soccer 2
While nothing huge like Final Fantasy XI it does leave Jak and Daxter X fans and Twisted Metal Black fans without there car destruction feeling of happiness.
Strategy and adventure PC game, Moe Moe World War II, is coming to the PSP/PS2 with a new scenario, a new character, gameplay and visual adjustments. The game is set to be released in Japan this fall, added things include a lady in a nazi bathing suit rubbing oil into another lady.
Nintendo spent thousands of dollars, endless hours trying to work on the Wii wheel, over 30 different prototypes were created, tossed and burnt to ashes jsut to try to make the perfect one so everyone can have the most fun out of Mario Kart Wii. Nintendo's final product the Wii wheel everyone has seen for quite awhile, close the the design of the 3rd part ones tossed and trying to be sold with games like Excite Truck and Need for Speed. In time everyone will learn which one they would prefer, A Wii mote on a wheel or everyones favorite Gamecube controller.

Its been rumored for awhile, but it seems it might be coming to reality, that the Legend of Zelda mangas are coming stateside.
The mangas have been around in japan for a few years ever since the release of Ocarina of Time, and with each video game series a new Series for the Manga comes, more recently was Four Swords adventure, Minish Cap and soon to be released Phantom Hour glass, each manga always popular in Japan because it starts everyones favorite hero Link in his many forms.
Hopefully we can have confirmation on the Mangas release date because im sure everyone will want one every month.
