First L.A. Noire screens hit the Internet

L.A. Noire no longer a PS3 exclusive, hitting 360 as well
by Nick Chester

You won't need to sit down for this one, as it should come as no surprise -- Rockstar Games' L.A. Noire is no longer a PlayStation 3 exclusive.

The title, which will be revealed in full in the next issue of Game Informer, is now confirmed to be coming to both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The info comes from Game Informer writer Matthew Kato, who in a comments thread on the magazine's Web site responded to questions regarding exclusivity.

"It's not a PS3-exclusive," he writes. "It was at one point, but it's coming out for the PS3 and 360."

The issue should be hitting mailboxes and store shelves soon, and I can't wait. The entire staff at Game Informer seems pretty amped up about what they've either seen or read... even if it's probably not coming to the iPad.

First info on Assassin's Creed 2 glides on to the net
by Nick Chester

It looks like our friends over at ScrewAttack's Hard News have gotten their hands on the latest issue of Game Informer a little early. You know, the one with Assassin's Creed 2 on the cover?

Knowing how excited we were about the game, they were nice enough to pass along some key information on Ubisoft's game from the Game Informer cover story. OK, OK... they pretty much passed along all of the info. The key details are that the game will take place in Italy, as expected, with locations like Saint Marks Basilica and The Grand Canal included. Players play the role of Ezio Auditore de Firenze, a nobleman of Florence who can wield an axe, a hammer, a mace, and a spear, among other instruments of death. Oh, and he can also glide using DaVinci's flying machine

If you want more information on Assassin's Creed 2, you can find it after the jump. But be warned that it's potentially "spoiler" heavy. We'd also recommend that you pick up the magazine when it hit shelves this month; we're sure the folks at Game Informer busted their asses to put together a killer article that's certainly more engaging than the list you'll find after break. Oh, and pretty pictures... lots of them.
