Bethesda just released the first video in a six part behind-the-scenes series for RAGE. In this video, the team at id Software touch on pioneering the first-person shooter and creating the world of RAGE.
“RAGE features intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Tech™ 5 technology. Set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, you emerge into a vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and more. RAGE promises an experience like no other.”
RAGE is slated for release on October 4th, 2011.
“In honor of America’s birthday and in keeping with its celebratory traditions of spectacle and excess, we’re unleashing the first instance of Red Dead Redemption 4XP for multiplayers all around the world on both PS3 and Xbox 360 this July 4th Weekend.
Beginning by 12:01AM Eastern this Friday July 1st and running until 11:59 PM Eastern on Monday July 4th, all online multiplayer modes including Free Roam and Undead Overrun in Undead Nightmare will earn you quadruple the experience points during this extended holiday weekend.”

Possibly as soon as next month, according to reports. LIMBO was very popular on the 360 and it also caught the eye of PlayStation gamers as well. You may recall how one PS3 gamer shared his/her appreciation for the game by recreating it in Little Big Planet.
Battlefield 3 is outselling Modern Warfare 3, which is “definitely a first”. This was confirmed by GameStop insiders to Hiphop Gamer. Apart from that, news also has it that the retailer apparently has a standing order to push Battlefield 3 towards customers more than Modern Warfare 3. Looks like EA really is working hard to get those promotions and marketing rolling hard on the tracks.
