Newsweek's LevelUp blog has confirmed with Sony Computer Entertainment that later this month, retailers will start carrying a new $39.99 SKU of the PlayStation 3 online-only title, Warhawk. This SKU will not contain the Jabra Bluetooth headset, which shipped to retail (alongside the $39.99 digital PlayStation Network download) at $69.99. While SCEA hasn't confirmed a release date, GameStop's Web site is listing an October 10 ship date.

LevelUp's N'Gai Croal predicts that this is indicative of Sony's future strategies -- games like the upcoming SOCOM: Confrontation, for instance, will likely ship with and without headsets (in addition to appearing on the PSN). While I can agree with that, his speculation that Gran Turismo 5 Prologue may ship with a limited number of bundles containing a Logitech racing wheel seems like a bit of a stretch. But then again, N'Gai talks to people who still won't return my phone calls.

Whatever the case may be, if Sony's looking to confuse the hell out of consumers will multiple SKUs and distribution methods, they're on the right track.

Review: CounterSpy

CounterSpy's stylized Cold War re-imagining is on point. It looks good, with its spindly spy running, rolling, and leaping like a jumping spider. It sounds good, with its jazzy soundtrack that reminds of James Bond.  Unfortunately, the rest of it feels half-baked. more

Microsoft worked with Blizzard to get Diablo III to 1080p on Xbox One

I had a chance to test out Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on the PS4 and it's pretty fantastic. At a cool 1080p and 60fps the game runs great, but on the Xbox One, it wasn't always that way. To upgrade to 1080p from 9...more
