Xbox 360 gamers may download Devil May Cry 4 pics and theme
Capcom might be revealing more of the next Devil May Cry game during this week's E3 Media and Business Summit, but eager gamers can already hit the Xbox Live Marketplace to get new gamer pics and a theme from the upcoming game, reports Microsoft's Larry Hryb on his Major Nelson blog. The picture pack sells for 100 Microsoft Points ($1.25) and contains five pictures covering the game's three main characters: Dante, Nero, and Kyrie. The "DMC4 on Xbox 360 Celebration Theme" is 150 Microsoft Points ($1.87) and contains another five pictures of the characters. The game's trailer from 2006's Tokyo Game Show can also be downloaded for free on Live.

All-Pro Football 2K8 goes gold
Electronic Arts' longtime rival 2K Sports is ready to jump back into the football fray for the first time since EA acquired an exclusive NFL license. 2K Sports' football title has gone gold and is due to hit stores on July 17. Coming out for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, the game will feature retired stars of the game, including Jerry Rice, John Elway, and Barry Sanders, and is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and older.

Jason Spezza to be NHL 2K8's cover star
Canadian-born Jason Spezza, first-line center for the Ottawa Senators, will be the spokesperson and cover sportsman for NHL 2K8, 2K Sports announced today. In addition to helping his team reach the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in its recent history this year, Spezza represented Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championships at age 16--only the third ever Canadian player to do so at such a young age. NHL 2K8 is due for release on September 3.

Mythos enters closed beta
Flagship Studios' massively multiplayer online role-playing game Mythos has entered the closed beta stage. The closed beta starts today and will be rolled out in multiple phases. Gamers who are interested in taking part can sign up at the game's official Web site. Mythos is a fantasy action role-playing game, which will be free to download and play. Gamers can pick one of three races--human, satyr, or goblin--and undertake quests and hunt for gold, gems, armor, and weapons.

OMG I Can't wait for the demo... Why didnt they come out with the content with a Demo at least. It really makes you more anxious to want to play this game even more once you download the video and Content.

I don't usually get sucked into the whole theme thing, I'm still rocking the GOW "I played on emergence day" scheme. But DMC4 has me all in a lather!!! Has anyone got the theme? Is it nice?

Jason Spezza? What about Crosby? Never any love for the current greatest hockey player.

I was interested in the DMC4 theme and gamerpics until a price was attached. I'll never pay for that kind of stuff, it should be free. You want to promote your game to me, I shouldn't have to pay for that.

One thing I never got was paying $1 to $2 for themes and pictures. I love the DMC series but no way am I paying that for pictures I could theoretically get for free on the internet.

I can't wait until APF, the wait is almost over. Jason Spezza for the 2K8 cover is ok i have no problem with it but still no Stanley Cup winners or maybe Sidney Crosby (following Super Joe in Points)

Quick Summary: DMC4 on 360 FT f'ing W!!!!! All Pro Football: WHY?! Why would you pay $70 for something that should be in Madden 08? Jason Spezza is a HUGE man. And I've never heard of Mythos but it's and MMO-RPG so it's probably going to be hit or miss. Good Luck!

You know--selling these "picture pacs" is simply freaking outragious. They should be given away for free. sheesh--or at the very least a LOT more pics in a pack. $1.25-2 should have like 50 photos or something. 2 cents a photo--no more. And STILL should be free.

Is anyone REALLY excited to play All-Pro football??? The stadiums look ridiculous, you can't edit/change any of the players, and the player lineup is terrible.
