Guess what? It's the BAFTAs tomorrow night
And that means all the glamorous folks involved in putting together the games you loved last year will be heading to the red-carpet to (hopefully) collect a copious number of gongs. We've teamed up with VoucherCodes.co.uk to bring you our definitive list of predictions ahead of tomorrow's big event...
Apparently Bioshock is still a big deal, as Bioshock 2 has shot straight to the top of the UK charts, removing previous leader Mass Effect 2
Interestingly, after a slew of price-cuts (and perhaps that Playstation 3 patch), Bayonetta has re-entered the charts in number 10 (up from 36). Elsewhere, Fifa 10 and Modern Warfare 2 are still strong propositions. Check out the full list after the jump..
ELSPA's confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 was the biggest selling game for the Playstation 3 in 2009
The news comes shortly after Modern Warfare 2 was announced as the biggest game of the year by ELSPA, raking in sales of £67million in just one week. The game's now pulled in over $1billion. Sitting next to Modern Warfare 2 in the Playstation 3's...
Haven't you bought it yet already? Well, we suppose there's not much else coming out
That's right folks: Modern Warfare 2 is still top of the UK sales charts. Hurrah, whoopee and all that. Fifa 10's second, Assassin's Creed II's third. Not much else to say. Knock yourselves out. CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 2 FIFA 10 ASSASSIN'S CREED II NEW SUPER...
Remember the excellent "Ultimate Team" DLC for FIFA 09? We gave it 3/4 and were quite taken with it earlier this year
Well, EA have just announced an updated version of the DLC for FIFA 10. The DLC has been made over with a "redesigned chemistry system built around player relationships". The DLC's coming in February and will cost just...
Huge disappointment for Insomniac Games in the UK
They have seen their excellent Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time reach a lowly number 22 in the UK all-formats chart. The game was beaten by Sony's other release of the week, SingStar: Take That, which appeared to get much more marketing in the mainstream press than Ratchet. Alas, with Modern...
Confirmed: you need to have ZZ Top and other rock acts in your game to be successful
Also, you kinda need to be reasonably priced. That's right folks, the UK charts ain't looking too pretty for DJ Hero which debuted at number 20. Despite Freestyle Games doing a pretty stellar job (review forthcoming) on the electro-hip-hop-dance-pop arm of Activision's music "Hero" franchise, the game..

Before the babies come and bombard the site with tales of how Playstation 3 software doesn't sell and the exclusives suck, let's have a moment of clarification: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, one of the best games of the year, has debuted at number two in the British sales charts -- one spot behind Fifa 10, a game that was able to chart all week and was released on seven chartable platforms
Following the success of DiRT2, Codemasters have flown out of the gates with another successful debut on the UK sales charts
Their super hardcore first person shooter Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising debuted at number two on the charts, right behind EA's FIFA 10, which enjoyed a second week on the top spot. Need For Speed Shift came in at number three, with Sony's Gran Turismo PSP finishing at..
Fifa 10 has sold pretty darn well
Pretty amazingly well actually. EA claim that the game is the fastest selling sports game of "all time"; selling 1.7 million copies in its first week. EA also went on to describe the game as their biggest "European launch in history". The high sales figures can probably be attributed to the...
A magnificent success for FIFA 10 this year, as it succeeds expectations and becomes the second fastest selling game ever in the UK, right behind Grand Theft Auto IV
Even more interestingly, Playstation 3 sales of the game accounted for 46% of the title's success; just 2% behind the XBOX 360's relative market share, and a triumph for Sony who are seeing their system start to really gain ground in..
The website backbone behind publications such as gamesTM, NowGamer, reckon they have had an anonymous tip-off regarding the release of the rumoured 250GB Playstation 3 hardware bundles
In a move to once again confuse the average consumer, the "high-end" 250GB Playstation 3 will likely launch bundled with either Need For Speed Shift or FIFA 10 based on information we received earlier this..

Who likes The Enemy? No, we don't either, but if you ignore their dodgy signatures on the box of your shiny new video game -- perhaps you'd be interested in winning a copy of Fifa 10
Hell yes, that's more interesting right? Of course it is. You can jump over to PepsiMaxCast.com for all the details you'll need to win the game. Warning: You will have to listen to The Enemy in the process.

If you, like us, can't wait to get your hands on the latest version of EA Sport's FIFA 10, perhaps you'd like to know that a demo is scheduled for launch on September 10th (17th if you're in North America)
The demo will contain Chelsea, Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Marseille, and Chicago Fire allowing you to play an exhibition match. The full...
EA have confirmed this afternoon at GamesCom '09 that FIFA 10 has expanded in a number of ways
The inclusion of 360 degree dribbling makes the game more precise and like the real game than ever before. The new control mechanics allow you to move anywhere on the pitch with precise controls. The addition of EA's Game Face technology will allow you to put yourself in the game. EA have also implemented..
FIFA 09 was a fantastic football game
Probably the pinnacle of this generation. FIFA 10 will try to build on that by not changing too much, but improving everything that came before. The biggest new addition is the 360 degree dribbling, which removes the 8-direction dribbling of virtually every football game in the past and gives you full control over your player's movement. We're seriously looking..
We're just writing to let you Americans know that FIFA "Soccer" 10 has been delayed in the USA
It's so weird seeing that "Soccer" word stamped on the front. Whatever. If you guys care (we're aware you don't) the game lands in your region on October 20th, a few weeks later than the October 2nd date in the UK. Strangely, the USA cover leaves in Frank Lampard but removes Rooney and Walcott..
Here's the FIFA 10 boxart for the UK
Featuring the faces of Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, Chelsea's Frank Lampard and Arsenal's Theo Walcott. Gone is Ronaldhino into the realms of mid-life mediocrity. Other regions will get an alternative cover (Schweinsteiger is on the German cover for example). No doubt a range of people are pissed about the...
This is a bit of a weird one really
Lowly Swindon Town are to be sponsored by EA Sports' latest and greatest FIFA 10. The team are floundering in England's third division - England's League 1 - and aren't likely to pull it much extra exposure for the game. Still, having a video game splashed across a shirt for a full year is a pretty big deal for the industry.
We're mighty excited about Fifa 10
Despite being just another football game, the last release was an accomplished piece of interactive sporting and these type of games can only get better. We hope they tidy up the menu system personally. Still an October 2nd release has been announced. That's the same day as the PSP Go. Expensive October this year methinks.
We're still not used to the subsequent years after a video game franchise not being "oh-something"
Meh, whatever. Here's the first trailer for FIFA 10. Apparently it's all using in-game graphics — we presume the slow-down and depth of field effects won't be present in the final product. We loved FIFA 09 though, we just hope they can fix the occasional clunky animation. Sure, the game looked good..
