Vivendi has outright acquired the developer of Assault Heroes for XBLA, Wanako Games. Assault Heroes will now fall under the Sierra Online banner, and seeing as how the title is one of the best XBLA games available, we expect a lot. Wanako's next project is 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures for the Live Arcade, and on top of that there are a number of original titles in development as well. We would like an Assault Heroes add-on please!

Well folks, it is official. Despite the horrible failure of his "Getting Up" game, Marc Ecko has started his own game development firm. “Marc Ecko Entertainment” will produce games along the same vein as Getting Up, and Ecko promises he has learned all the harsh lessons the fickle gaming industry has to teach with just one semi-failed title. We hope so Marc, we really do!


“Marc Ecko Entertainment” to concentrate on investment and development of next generation videogame properties.

EA today annoucned that it has acquired the online karaoke website SlingShot Media. The site is a MySpace-esque page community where users can record and share their self-sung versions of popular (and some not-so-popular_ songs. ThinkMySpace meets YouTube meets an AIM Buddy Profile. Whether EA has major changes in store for this site or just plans to make it into another cash cow is not clear, but knowing EA, we tend to favor the former.

It seems that the EU may be banding together to ban the use of sock-puppets. So what, you say? Well a sock-puppet, in ad terms, bascially means an entity created to look real and credible, but with the sole purpose of promoting a product or service. In other words, viral sites like ilovebees.com. This could be real bad news for the up and coming viral marketing houses that are all the rage with game publishers these days.
