Duke Nukem Forever Confirmed For May
Well, here it comes. After 13 years of development, countless near-misses and what many assumed was certain death, Duke Nukem forever has finally been dated for May 6th.
To be honest my words can't really do it justice. We've already delivered a hands-on preview, so here's are what the 2K and Gearbox top brass have to say.
The moment fans all over the world have been waiting for is almost here. May 2011 marks Duke’s return as he unleashes his brash and brutally honest wit on the world. His return is going to be epic and one that will make video gaming history. - 2K boss, Christoph Hartmann
When I said goodbye to 3D Realms and the original Duke Nukem 3D team in 1997 and soon after founded Gearbox Software, I never in my wildest dreams imagined that a day like today would come. Today I am proud, humbled and even astounded to announce that the day is coming at last for all gamers to be a part of video game history: Duke Nukem Forever will launch worldwide this May. - Gearbox president Randy Pitchford

Mortal Kombat Dated For April
Another date for your diaries! Netherrealm studios have confirmed that their highly-anticipated Mortal Kombat reboot will be hitting the UK on April 18th. "Mortal Monday" midnight launch events are expected at retailers throughout the UK.
It's perfectly placed to keep us entertained between February's epic deluge and DNF's May release. 2011 is shaping up to be one hell of a year.
Move Patch "Months Away" From LittleBigPlanet 2
Media Molecule have been undecided about bringing Playstation Move functionality to LittleBigPlanet 2 ever since the sequel was announced... but a new report from Eurogamer indicates that they're hard at work on a patch that will add support for the peripheral in the next few months. MM co-founder David Smith explained the following plan in the wake of LBP2's release earlier today.
Currently we're very much focused on adding in really powerful Move controller support. And that is a combination of functionality and levels and assets and things.
But that is still early, so it's not something we can talk too much about.
When asked whether this patch would be "months away," Smith agreed- but suggested that they'll be leveraging a serious amount of manpower into the project.
Probably [will be months away], yeah. We have a lot of the team focused on that. We've just been reconfiguring the office. We've got loads of manpower on this Move stuff.
This "powerful Move controller support" will likely take the form of a DLC asset pack that resembles Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves (which is bundled free with LBP2). We'll keep you posted. [Eurogamer]
