Activision Releases for the Year

Most gamers have come to get to know Activision. Since they have come out with all kinds of different music games, they often find people waiting for more. Coming up in the fall of this year, two games, that might just interest you, have been sey to release. The two games of Guitar Hero 6 and a second DJ Hero game have been decided that they will be releasing in the fall.

The number of games that Activision has decided to come out with in a year was decreased by a lot in this last year. The great success that their games have had has led to different decisions being made as to how many games need to come out in a year. In the upcoming season this year of the fall, Guitar Hero 6 is going to be released and then the second DJ Hero game has been given a release date that will be just shortly after the release of Guitar Hero 6.

Here is what Activision had to say about their upcoming games, they include “more great original music, new and innovative gameplay modes and a significantly enhanced social gaming experience and plenty of downloadable content.”

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

Coming out for the many consoles is the game, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. The consoles it will be releasing for include the Nintendo Wii, the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation Portable, the Xbox 360 and also the PC. This game, that has been published by Ubisoft, is going to be available to gamers starting just a few weeks from now on the day of May 18th, 2010.

The following is a review that has been given to the game, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, specifically for the Wii version:

“Speaking of smooth, the game’s engine runs at a slick 60 FPS, and this first level took full advantage of it as the surrounding environment cracked and crumbled all around the Prince. There was a great bit of destruction in one of the later levels where I had to actually run up the side of crumbling tower, jumping between the tower and a solid wall, in order to reach the topmost platform. Yeah. It was kind of rad.”

Make sure to look into more details regarding this game when the date of May 18th, starts to come nearer and nearer.
