Take-Two confirms success for the 2K Games' FPS with a sequel due in 2009...

Take-Two Interactive has today confirmed that 2K Boston and 2K Australia's Xbox 360/PC shooter BioShock has sold over 1.5 million units since it launched towards the end of August. News of the game's success comes as the company announced that the demo of BioShock on Xbox Live Marketplace has been downloaded over one million times. A sequel to the title was confirmed in a Conference Call with the Take-Two board, with an expected release in two years time.

BioShock's sales performance comes as Take-Two Interactive confirmed its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2007, which ended on July 31st. Despite a drop in net revenues of just under $35 million from $241.2 million to $206.4 million, the company reduced its net losses from $91.4 million to $58.5 million, which Take-Two states is as a result of decreases in product costs, software development costs, and operating costs.

Strauss Zelnick, Chairman of Take-Two, stated, "Today we are establishing guidance for fiscal 2008 - the first full year to reflect the contributions of our new management team. Our outlook reflects a strong product pipeline, the benefits of a comprehensive restructuring and cost-efficiency program, including the sale of our non-core Joytech accessories division, and the expected profitability of our sports business. We also are announcing a new publishing label - 2K Play - focused on the expanding casual gamer market. We are proud of what this Company's management team has accomplished in a short time, and confident that our efforts will build the value of Take-Two in the future."

Ben Feder, Chief Executive Officer of Take-Two, added, "Take-Two is well-positioned to capitalize on the growth of the video game market as next generation consoles gain traction. Our creative teams are delivering a strong and increasingly diverse product portfolio, including our successful new BioShock franchise. We are looking forward to our 2007 holiday line up, as well as our solid 2008 slate, which includes the release of Grand Theft Auto IV in our fiscal 2008 second quarter."

Take-Two also confirmed the line up of titles for the rest of the fiscal year, which included the likes of Table Tennis on Wii, a Game of the Year Edition for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and a North American release of a more sanitised version of Manhunt 2. An outline of titles heading for release in the following fiscal year, which begins on November 1st, includes Bully on Xbox 360 and Wii, GTA IV, and Top Spin 3 - but there's no room for LA Noire or Beaterator.

Serouisly if your going to sit here and insult the 360 you know dude it just proves your a [#@!?]ing A** who didn't do any research before you ranted on about your "superior" system. Red rings of death sure it happens but you can send it to get fixed and that doesn't take to much time or money. Subscribtion to LIVE sure it cost money but they have the membership for like 5 bucks. Look 360 and Ps3 are pretty equal neither is really all that diffrent just the brand. some diffrent exclusive games and blu ray for the PS3 (Whipdi freaking do bluray!) but if you look at most of the games out that are good you can find them on PS3 or 360.

PS3: has got good excluisve games like MGS4

360: Halo 3

So dude get iover your self your just proving you have no life to everyone here by ranting on about a systen that isn't anymore superior than the 360.

iceblade you sad fanboy tw@ get a fu**in brain, how the fu** is the ps3 supiror to the 360, when the ps3 breaks theres no warning lights (the red ring dont mean the consoles dead though you thick sony fanboys dont know fu** all about the 360) yeah blu-ray next gen lol so why is burnout paradise comming to playstation store later this year also why is sony bringing out a 160gb ps3 if blu-ray is the gaming future lol future proof my a*s. (also just like what happened after a few years of the expencive dvd players back in 2001 came the cheaper a lot cheaper dvd player will be alba blu-ray players so who needs a ps3 as the cheapest way to watch blu-ray films when alba/goodmans/bush/warfdale ect bring out blu-ray players costing less than £70). but here is the clincher that all sad fanboys rip the 360 with rrod and pay to play online (wow £35 a year for xbox live and rrod isnt reall red ring of death the ring idicates a fault ie the av cable isnt pluged in though like i said you sony fanboys dont know sh** about 360)

actually im going to laugh at IP Address: ***.***.124.217 as only a few days ago i was talking about this now its on this very site. read on little stupid boy..... Could Intel's GPGPU be appearing in the Xbox 720 or PlayStation 4... Larrabee, Intel's foray into the world of discrete graphics processors, could be shaping future next-gen consoles, according to comments from the chip manufacturer in an interview with Develop. Offering developers a fully programmable pipeline and based around the popular x86 instruction set, the Larrabee specifications are considered to be closer to that of a multi-core CPU than traditional GPU technology. Such a design allows the technology to fluidly handle tasks not typically assigned to the GPU, helping out the CPU as and when needed, and unlocking the true potential of parallel computing offered by multi-core architecture. Intel's Aaron Coday revealed, "It's definitely something we would want to discuss with the console vendors, and hope that the architecture that we're providing is something that is very compelling for them and be interesting." A paper released at SIGGRAPH 2008 indicated that 25 Larrabee cores running at 1GHz could potentially run Gears of War at 60fps at a resolution of 1600x1200 - this is believed to be a conservative estimation as the cores are widely expected to run faster than 1GHz. Samples of Larrabee are expected to be unveiled towards the end of the year, with the first video card based around the technology expected in late 2009 or 2010

actually im gonna change my attitude towards this pathetic argument. its not about how powerfull a games machine is its about how good the developers make the games (just look at mario galaxy and tell me that game is cra* on an underpowered console or that the developers got there heads round the consoles limitations and made an awsomly playable game)
