Gaming News and Notes from 8-10-10

Just a handful of notes over the last few days that caught my eye…

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light will be coming out for the Xbox 360 first, but it does not include multiplayer right at first. That functionality will be patched in later when the game releases for the PC and PS3 later.

THQ announces that their popular UFC games may start releasing on a slower schedule. Recent reports show that while the game has sold well, the company’s profits have been hurting.

Sorry PSP owners – Force Unleashed 2 just got canceled for it.

Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition is scheduled for release this fall. There’s no details for it yet, but I would guess that the various download packs such as the $40 retail release Awakenings and a few others would come with it. Not a bad deal if you’ve yet to play this game, but probably not much there for people like me who have played through it a few times already. Still, following their recent announcement of Dragon Age 2 – this is a good idea for BioWare to keep interest in their new IP high.

On the collections front, it looks like Ubisoft is going to drop collection packs of Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia. Right now the listings show PS3 only apparently but I suspect we’ll see these show up for the 360 as well.

I enjoy the Guitar Hero and Rockband games – they’re fun with friends and family, and though I feel that they’ve over saturated the market (I dug the Aerosmith and Metallica releases, but these single-group centric releases are starting to feel like a bit much) – I still look forward to the main releases.
