EA'S THE GODFATHER THE GAME TAKES THE FAMILY BUSINESS TO THE NEXT GENERATION
Gamers...Rule the streets of the Big Apple in new and improved, highly-anticipated video games based on the critically-acclaimed movie by Paramount Pictures and the book by Mario Puzo.
In The Godfather The Game for Xbox 360, players will embark on new missions, compound takeovers, and contract hits for big payouts and respect. With enhanced family interaction, gamers will now have the ability to hire crew member soldiers for back up on jobs and track performance against other players online. Join the family, carry out orders, earn respect, and rise through the ranks of the Corleone family in a vast open world environment in a quest to become Don of New York City.
Both new games go beyond the films and book to virtually recreate The Godfather fiction throughout 1940s-50's New York City. Players will relive classic Godfather moments alongside unforgettable and memorable characters from the film such as Luca Brasi, Sonny and of course, Don Vito Corleone himself. Actors from the film, including James Caan, Robert Duvall, Abe Vigoda, and Marlon Brando reprised their roles lending their voices to both games.
The godfather the game for xbox 360 was developed by EA Redwood Shores and has a MSRP of $59.99. The Godfather Mob Wars for the PSP has an MSRP of $39.99. More information about EA games is available at www.info.ea**** or the game's homepage at www.godfather.ea****.

The Heisman Trophy may be the most prestigious award a college football player can receive, but perhaps the most coveted is being selected as the cover athlete of NCAA Football 08 by EA SPORTS.
Boise State quarterback, Jared Zabransky was selected as the NCAA Football 08 cover athlete. He joins former stars like Reggie Bush, Shaun Alexander and Desmond Howard. Last year NCAA Football 07 was the #2 selling game in North America behind Madden NFL 07.
Jared Zabransky led Boise State to back-to-back undefeated regular seasons and was named the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl MVP as he led his team to an exhilarating overtime win against the Oklahoma Sooners. He will most likely be remembered for perfectly executing the Statue of Liberty play to lead Boise State to the win.

In the world of video games, industry giant Electronic Arts decided to not extend their bid for a sixth time to acquire Grand Theft Auto makers Take Two Interactive. When Take Two learned about the bigger company's decision, they offered to open up their books to EA. Most analysts believe that the companies need each other and any animosity caused by the negotiations will eventually be forgotten in hopes of closing-out a deal.
The Princeton Review is getting low marks from the public after a recent fiasco. Due to a problem with its website code, The Princeton Review unintentionally shared personal data about thousands of students publicly for seven weeks. Because of the code flaw, any web-searcher could easily access thousands of files on the site. Hardest hit were 34-thousand students from Sarasota, Florida and 74-thousand students from Fairfax County, Virginia, as data about gender, learning disabilities, birthdates, ethnicities, and test scores were on public display.
And there is more rotten news for Apple. The company's troubled MobileMe service is still causing so many problems that the company has announced they will offer users two more months of free service. MobileMe has only been available for a month and Apple had already given out a free month of the service because some MobileMe users had lost emails. The service has been so unreliable that Steve Jobs admitted in an email that MobileMe has not lived up to the company's high standards. Analysts believe that Apple overextended itself when releasing MobileMe the same day as putting out the new 3G iPhone, the iPhone 2.0 operating system, and the new App Store.
And in web radio, popular streaming radio sites like Pandora could be in big trouble if royalty laws are not changed. Last year, a federal panel ordered web radio broadcasters to pay twice the fees they were already paying, per song, per listener. While traditional radio doesn't pay such a fee and satellite radio pays a much lower one, web radio sites will see most of their revenue eaten up by the fees, with 70-percent of revenues going towards the fees. This week, California Representative Howard L. Berman is trying to make a last minute deal between webcasters and SoundExchange, the company that reps recording companies and artists. However, both sides have not yet budged. If an agreement is not reached, Pandora and other similar sites might simply have to shut down.
