preGAME 16: ModNation Racers and Split/Second
This week on preGAME we build our very own racetrack and then give it a spin live on the show! Today we're giving you a double dose of racing action with ModNation Racers and Split/Second. Joining us on the phone to talk about ModNation Racers will be Dan Sochan, producer on the project.
Before we hit our live demos, we'll discuss some of this week's top gaming headlines. First up, Halo: Reach has been officially dated. September 14 is when you'll be able to play the prequel to the Halo trilogy that follows a team of Spartans attempting to hold off a Covenant attack.
Next, we'll talk about how Killzone 3 will be one of the first PlayStation 3 games playable in 3D. Of course this will also require the purchasing of a new 3D HDTV, but it sounds like Sony is keeping up with its promise to bring 3D gaming to the PS3.
Finally, we'll talk about the big video marketplace partnership announced Tuesday that brings HBO content to the PlayStation Network. This is the first time a premium cable network has shown up on a console, so tune in as we analyze the ramifications.
We've got all these stories, plus much more, on this week's episode of preGAME! Want to be a part of our live taping? Make sure you head to http://cnet.com/live/pregame every Tuesday at 4 p.m. EDT.
