Majesco's Infected has been a highly anticipated PSP title around the GF! offices: It has a great features list that includes zombies (big bonus) and online multiplayer (bigger bonus) that allows you to "infect" other players with your personalized virus if you can beat them online (mindblowingly cool bonus). But features lists can only tell you so much. After a long time anticipating this title, we were excited to get our grubby little zombie-slaying hands on it. Laurie came up with a complete review that let's you know whether Infected is the next big thing or just a biohazard.

Konami has announced that they will begin selling their products directly to customers via their new online storefront, KonamiStyle.com. The online storefront launches with a catalog of 75 Konami titles, including fan-favorite franchises Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, Yu-Gi Oh, and Dance Dance Revolution. The move to a direct-sales website will also open up possibilities for Konami to offer customer incentive and reward programs, which Konami hopes will help maintain a community of loyal gamers around the publisher's many games.

This week in the Mailbag, we've got all kinds of media-centric inquiries, ranging from the Xbox 360's media features to getting media onto the PSP and a few more tips to help you find an HDTV that will be compatible with the PlayStation 3. As usual, Matt James has put all of the best letters of the week together for your reading pleasure.
game: Xbox 360
how-to | 11/20/05 | Shawn Rider
The Xbox is amazing for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is a whole raft of new multimedia capabilities. Now all media playback is handled by the system, which means you can overlay your custom soundtrack on any game you'd like. Connect to other PCs on your home network, or to portable devices including PSP and iPod, and you can stream music right into your games. And if you have a PC with Windows Media Center Edition 2005, then the Xbox 360 becomes the hub of your media life: live television, recorded shows, and playback of videos from your PC are just some of the features in the new Xbox 360.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has developed a campus-wide Wi-Fi service that can track when and where you connect, recording your location for up to 12 hours. It could be the next best thing in multiplayer game matching (find a PSP or DS user nearby to hook up a game), but with cities like San Fransisco and Philadelphia already looking into municipal broadband projects, this sort of technology also raises some serious ethical questions. And after recent news of World of Warcraft's "Warden" program spying on your computer we're worried about these issues coming directly to videogames. Sony's massive blowout with spyware, rootkits, and a public backlash that will no doubt severely wound the company, will also affect in some tangential way (at best) PlayStation 3 development and launch. Aaron takes a look at these issues and probes the changing face of your gaming privacy.
game: X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse
review | 11/11/05 | Shawn Rider
X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse is the sequel to last year's breakout hit, and the return of the franchise is triumphant. The PSP version of Rise of Apocalypse features all the goodness of the home console versions, including a robust online multiplayer mode that lets you team up with players from all over the world. With a great X-Men story, super satisfying action-RPG gameplay, and loads of extras and unlockables, Rise of Apocalypse is one of the best things out for PSP right now.
game: Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie
news | 11/03/05 | Shawn Rider
One of the titles we're most excited about this Fall is Peter Jackson's King Kong, the game based on the movie. The combination of Peter Jackson's visual storytelling and Michel Ancel, Ubisoft's resident super game designer, is a potentially dynamic duo that has so far demonstrated an incredible game in the making. Now, Ubisoft sends word that they will host public preview events for the game in New York City and Los Angeles, the week before the game hits stores for pretty much every platform on the planet. The preview events will be major affairs, featuring a full mock-up of Skull Island and 11 kiosks where gamers can experience King Kong, the game, in full big-screen, HD glory on Xbox 360. Get the dates here.
game: EBoot Loader v0.7
news | 10/26/05 | Shawn Rider
A developer known as Fanjita has released a version 2.0 homebrew loader for PSP, which brings Sony vs. The Hackers pretty much even again: Now, you can load your PSP up with the latest games (which are requiring you to have version 2.0 firmware) and you can play your homebrew games, applications and emulators. Plus, you get the new version 2.0 features including the much-appreciated web browser. But don't go jamming that X-Men Legends 2 UMD in your machine and update all willy-nilly. There's a method to upgrading your PSP.

Jack Thompson's letter offering to donate $10,000 may have been satirical, but not nearly satirical enough. A number of games designed to meet his criteria have sprung up across the Internet, evidently eager to top the lawyer's demand. It's a good thing that Jonathan Swift's proposal, the one which Thompson compares his own letter to, was a bit more obvious. Crazy things could have happened. Check out this week's twoplayer comic, A Modest Proposal Gone Wrong

Majesco has announced several exciting unlockable characters for Infected, the fast-paced shooter for the PSP
. Announced unlockable characters for Infected include Bloodrayne and members of Slipknot. Given Infected's gruesome gameplay footage that mixes horror and Christmas, and given Infected's rocking soundtrack with several tracks from Slipknot, Infected is shaping up to be a major November release. We'll still have to see how Infected shapes up in light of World of Warcraft's adventures in virtual plagues
, but it looks like it will be a great game and an important game for the PSP
game: Gekido: The Dark Angel
news | 10/17/05 | Shawn Rider
Naps Team, an indy beat 'em up developer, has announced Gekido: The Dark Angel for PSP. We would normally wait until we had much more information before talking about a game, but we remember the action of the PSOne version of Gekido, and the crazy GBA version of the game, too. These are evolutions of a classic genre, beefed up but still feeling very comfortable. In a way, Gekido can be to beat 'em ups what Guilty Gear is to fighting games, and this PSP title might just be the breakout installment in the series that gets gamers to pay attention. We'll keep up with Gekido's development, and in the meantime you can check out these teaser screens from developer Naps Team.

A fair warning to all you potential PSP
hackers in the world; there's a virus for your PSP
that's masquerading as a firmware downgrade. With the release of an actual firmware downgrader
, it's easy to see why people might be tempted to download this little virus and install it in an attempt to run their PSP
s back to a more flexible state. However, the virus - called PSP
brick - ends your PSP
. By deleting key files, the Trojan destroys your PSP
for all practical purposes. Since you can't undo the damage without a functioning PSP
to hack, PSP
owners are basically out of a system. Of course, since hacking your PSP
voids the warranty, Sony has announced that they're washing their hands of the problem. Such is the risk of system hacking. For those of you without a hacked PSP
, you needn't worry. The virus isn't capable of transferring between systems without the user actively installing it.
news | 09/28/05 | Shawn Rider
Surely much to Sony's chagrin, those clever hackers have done it again. SonyXTeam has released a Firmware Downgrader for the PSP that will downgrade version 2.0 firmware to 1.50, which enables gamers who have recently bought the system to downgrade their firmware and use homebrew PSP utilities and play homebrew PSP games. This allows new PSP owners to join the rest of us playing Game Boy Advance games while we wait for something decent to come out. It sure beats watching movies on the thing!

Never a crew to let a single viewpoint dominate (we're still cleaning up the offices from the Great Console Wars of 01/02), our man Chris Martin has stepped up to the metaphorical typewriter. Those of you who find the Nintendo Revolution a bit too syrupy-sweet and dreamily perfect most likely share some of Chris' concerns.
