Homefront Sells 375,000 Units on Day One
Take that, reports of lukewarm reviews scaring investors - THQ's new IP Homefront has shifted 375,000 units on its first day of sales (in the United States and Australia, with the European release on Friday) and is "already fulfilling re-orders" for the game from "multiple retailers", according to the company's CEO Brian Farrell.

Guitar Hero is Dead, Long Live Rocksmith
In what is perhaps an answer to all those people who decry Guitar Hero and Rock Band as "not at all like playing a real guitar", Ubisoft have just announced their next big foray into the music game genre: Rocksmith. How realistic is it? Well, let's just say that you play the game by plugging in your own real guitar.

Academic Report: Piracy is a 'Global Pricing Problem'
The Media Piracy Project, which has run for the last three years with the combined efforts of 35 researchers, released its report last week examining the reasons, methodology, and impact of digital piracy across places such as India, Russia and Mexico. Their conclusion? Piracy is a problem caused by global pricing - something those of us who live in the outrageously over-priced country of Australia are all too familiar with.

New Arkham City Trailer is Delicious: Gameplay, Foreboding and More
With the stealth genre rapidly growing more and more niche, fans of the old necksnap-from-behind like myself are looking forward more than ever to Rocksteady's next offering: Batman: Arkham City. A new trailer has just been released for the game, showing a delicious mix of gameplay, cutscenes, and generally ominous amounts of foreboding.

Turn Your Fake EVE Online Money Into Real Money to Help Japan
If you're a player of CCP Games' EVE Online, chances are you have a bit of the game's virtual time-currency PLEX lying around. What are you going to do with it, buy some more time in your imaginary spaceship? Fair enough, but what if instead you could convert your excess PLEX into a donation directly to the Red Cross, to aid the relief efforts being undertaken in earthquake-ravaged Japan?

Battlefield 3: Fault Line Episode 2 Released
Been hanging out for the next installment of Battlefield 3's "Fault Line" episodes? Here at games.on.net we, too, have a small shrine to DICE's upcoming shooter in our bedrooms, and so we were very excited when EA showed up with this latest video and demanded we put it on the internet. Sure thing, EA - I think we can handle that one for you.

[UPDATED] Ubisoft Include Torrented Version of Their Own Soundtrack With ACB
If you pre-ordered Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood on the PC then you'd have been delighted to receive an MP3 collection of the game's soundtrack. You might, then, have been perplexed to see "arsa13" listed in the encoding credits for the soundtrack - particularly if you know that "arsa13" was also the user responsible for uploading a number of illegal torrents of the Brotherhood soundtrack. Yes, that's right: it looks very strongly like Ubisoft torrented their own soundtrack in order to give it out as a bonus.

Bioware Employee Discovered Posting on Metacritic, EA Defends Practice
As the person who performed our official review of Dragon Age 2, I found this story quite interesting: a Reddit user by the name of GatoFiasco, upon noticing that the top Metacritic user review of Dragon Age 2 was gushing with decidedly PR-like praise, opted to do a bit of internet-sleuthing. Several minutes later, he discovered that the person giving Dragon Age 2 a perfect 10/10 score was in fact none other Chris Hoban, an Applications Engineer... working at Bioware.

Federal Government to 'Consider Other Options' if no R18+ by July
Federal Home Minister Brendan O'Connor, formerly of the "96% in favour is not indicative enough" camp and now firmly in the "R18+ for games, yes please" camp, has spoken publicly about the government's willingness to "consider other options" if an R18+ classification for video games is not introduced by the July meeting of the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General.

FIGHT!
You’re all planning to import the twice-banned Mortal Kombat. Pro-tip: don’t. “Fight!” indeed, but more like “Fatality!” if you get nabbed by Australian customs, which you most certainly will be. Now that this thing is exploding, they’re cracking down and, being that just about everybody will import from very similar sources at around the same time, your chances of incurring a fine of three times the value of the item(s) or $110,000 (whichever’s higher) if caught out are particularly great. The shamozzle has, as you’d expect, re-heated the Australian R18+ rating debate into a raging inferno.

E.Y.E Don't See it Anywhere
For everyone hanging out for Source-engine RPG blastathon E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy, there is bad news, and there is bad news. So, which one do you want first? But there isn’t any good news, stop being smart. Unfortunately, the game’s been delayed. Yes, again. What was originally a late 2009 release date moved all the way to February of this year (!), and is now an entirely uncertain one. Bugger! It’s all in the name of perfection, however.

F.E.A.R. 3: P-Man vs. P-Fett
Slowly but surely, F.E.A.R. 3 is building a bit of momentum in the lead-up to its April release, and today we have a creepy new trailer showing off one of the in-game cinematics. That in itself isn’t too amazing, but what is quite interesting is the way in which slow-motion actioneer Point Man and former (current?) nemesis Paxton Fettel will interact with each other. There’s beef there; massive beef. F.E.A.R. 3: Beefalicious? I have received no response from Warner.

ZeniMax Opens MMO Support Center
Bethesda’s sister company ZeniMax Online has just flung open the doors on a brand-new facility (facility, yes… ‘ZeniMax’ sounds so much like an evil corporation ala. Umbrella every office they inhabit is now a facility) dedicated to MMO customer support in Galway, Ireland. While we don’t know much about the studio’s upcoming MMORPG, it’s obviously going to be quite substantial – the support center will reportedly create “hundreds of jobs over the next several years.”

Realm of the Titans Alpha Test
Forget beta periods, that’s old news and no longer fit for the contemporary gaming hipster; alpha tests are the new beta, or something. In any case, Aeria Games’ latest MOBA baby, Realm of the Titans, is swinging into open alpha before heading into closed beta land aproper, and you’re invited. Or are you? Maybe, maybe. They’re hand-picking seasoned MOBA vets for two short test phases during April. Check it out.

Ubisoft’s Guitar Hero
Now, this is some cheek. Like a cat on an oblivious mouse Ubisoft have struck, announcing their own foray into the rhythm game genre just as Activision cut the cord on long-running genre-populist Guitar Hero. To their credit, Rocksmith sounds a whole lot more appealing than just tapping some coloured buttons vaguely in time with whatever’s going on onscreen. It’s been built from the ground-up to accommodate actual musicianship, and will be compatible with real guitars.

Lukewarm Homefront Reviews Spook Investors
Yesterday, I played Homefront again. It’s a lot of fun, but it’s also an FPS – and these days that’s a tough arena to compete in. So tough, in fact, that as the stockmarket came to a close today, THQ was trading at a 21% drop in value. Why? Well, because reviews for Homefront have started to flood in and so far, Metacritic has come back with a 72% average score for the Xbox 360 and PC versions. The PS3 has done slightly better at 76%, but still – investors are spooked.

Want The Witcher 2 Sans DRM?
‘DRM’ is a very dirty three letters, but ‘GOG’ is not. In fact, GOG are taking the fight to DRM, and are set to provide the only digital download of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings that doesn’t actually have any DRM attached to it. That’s one helluva carrot they’re dangling, and a much juicier one than the competition at that – but they’re not done. As well as doing away with the Digital Rights Management devil, everyone who pre-orders the game from GOG will gain access to a live Q&A with Senior Producer, Tomasz Gop.

Prey 2
Bethesda have just announced the sequel to Prey, which is bafflingly entitled Prey 2. I know, they are an esoteric bunch over at Human Head Studios, who have returned to create the follow-up to one of 2006’s favourite shooters. Thank heavens! Set for release next year for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, concrete details on just what to expect are unfortunately exclusive to the May editions of PSM3, Xbox World, and Official PlayStation Magazine. Curse you, meddling magazines!

Transform and MMO Out
Last year, Chinese publisher NetDragon revealed their plans to unleash a Transformers-centric MMO and we all sort of rejoiced until we realised that it wouldn’t be available outside of Asia, Russia, the Middle East, and North Africa. Sad Decepticon was sad – until today, that is. News just came in that UK-based studio Jagex have buddied up with Hasbro to create their own Transformers MMO for us to possibly enjoy.

Sneak-Peek at Microsoft Office 15
What’s this? Microsoft Office 15 hasn’t even entered official testing yet! Too bad, because the internet is here to spoil Microsoft’s secret party by throwing back the covers on the future of office productivity much earlier than anticipated. Leaked by those sneaky Ruskies over at Winreview.ru, the follow-up to Microsoft Office 2010 they’ve managed to poach is obviously an early build, but does show off a few things prospective buyers might be interested in seeing.
