Disney Interactive Studios launches Tron: Evolution video game

By: Array

Tron was the coolest film ever when I was a kid and the movie is still really cool. I spent many a Saturday in the arcade in the mall playing the Tron video game when I was a kid. I loved the light cycle game and the one where the face was inside all the swirling tiles you had to destroy. I recall there were several different games you could play on the arcade game, but I forget what the others were now. Disney Interactive Studios has announced a new Tron: Evolution video game to go with the flick launching this month.

The game is on every game console and on Windows as well. Not surprisingly considering it's based on what will be one of the biggest flicks of the year, the title is offered in a few versions for other game systems. On the Xbox 360 and PS3, it will sell for $59.99, which is the typical price of a new game. The Wii Version is $49.99 and is called Tron: Evolution - Battle Grids. The DS and PSP versions are $39.99 and the Windows game is $29.99.

Australian Federal Government backs R18+ rating for video games

By: Array

Finally! Australian gamers might soon find themselves unshackled by the current limitation of the MA15+ rating for video games, whilst movies can hold an R18+ classification, games in Australia are limited to an MA15+ classification.

Even if you're 18 or 118 you cannot buy an R18+ game in Australia as they do not currently have an R18+ classification for video games, but this is hopefully... all set to change.

One of the coolest games to play with a group of friends if you ask me is Rock Band. I know I have spent more than one night with a group playing Rock Band on the PS3 and I have the game on my iPhone too for the times when I get really bored.

The big new feature of the game isn't tracks; it's a new fifth way to play the game.

By: Array

Here at TweakTown we've posted a few things about Kinect - mainly because it's been such a success for Microsoft and it looks to represent a large change in how we use technology in the future. The broadness of it's tech from hacking has also interested thousands of people.

It is still successful weeks after launch selling 125, 000 units every single day for the past week in the run up to the end of year holiday season.
