Scratch that, no four play co-op for LEGO: Indy

We'll apologize in advance to those fanboys who have an obsessive love of the LEGO franchise and were looking forward to LEGO: Indiana Jones' four player online co-op. True, it was "confirmed" a few days ago by the crew over at MTV Multiplayer, but we've since learned that four player co-op has been ... "un-confirmed".

MTV Multiplayer just posted a mild retraction after a LEGO: Indy producer cleared up the four player miscommunication. The new official details state that the game will allow for four players to be on the screen at once, but only two players can be controlled at any given time. Not four. And really, that's a big bummer. We guess we'll just have to stick with Halo 3 if we want four player co-op shenanigans. Stupid bricks.

LEGO: Indiana Jones gets four player online co-op

The ever enthusiast crew over at MTV Multiplayer recently received some hands on time with Traveller's Tales' upcoming LEGO: Indiana Jones and whilst deep in their brick adventure, learned an interesting co-op tidbit. Traveller's confirmed that LEGO: Indy will join the Halo 3's of the world in becoming a rarity among all games by allowing gamers to play their Indiana Jones adventure online with up to three other friends. That's right, four player LEGO online co-op! We love us our online co-op ... yum!

Rumor: Paramount to jump the HD DVD ship too? [update]

Update: Paramount released a statement today saying that their "current plan is to continue to support the HD DVD format". Good news we say, although the the whole "current plan" wording doesn't put us at complete ease.

HD DVD is getting its metaphorical bum whipped lately and things do not look to be getting any brighter.

The Financial Times has cooked up the latest HD DVD versus Blu-ray rumor and are claiming that Paramount may be close to announcing that they're going Blu-ray exclusive and abandon their multi-million dollar partnership with the HD DVD camp. The rumor is based on sources close to Paramount's deal with Toshiba saying that there is a clause in the contract that allows Paramount to back Blu-ray in the event Warner Bros. goes blu. And wouldn't you know, last week Warner did just that. If Paramount were to jump to Blu-ray then Sony would have a massive choke hold on the HD format war further pushing their movie studio support higher than their current 70% rate. The other question mark in the equation is Dreamworks who are best buds with Paramount and are said to have a similar contract with Toshiba. Oh well, there's always Universal. They got HD DVD's back ... don't they?
