Full Auto 2 not PS3, good?

Waaaaay back before the last E3 ever, SEGA let everyone know that Full Auto 2 was coming to PS3 exclusively. Xbox 360 fanboys rejoiced, as they wouldn't have to play the sequel to "the game that proved there is a way to add automatic weapons and fast cars and make it not fun." Well, folks, those carefree days are over. It looks like the 360 may be subjected to even more mediocre car combat. Club Skill was apparently trolling around the European press site for the game when they noticed that 360 was listed as a platform, along with some updated images. This isn't exactly an official announcement, so there's still a chance we might all be spared.

In all seriousness, the first Full Auto did have a lot of promise. Hopefully, SEGA can make Full Auto 2 the game that it should have been the first time.

(Fanboy trivia: I was the guy who submitted the Full Auto 2 tip to Joystiq way back in May. Follow your dreams, kids, and you can shirk your daily work responsibilities, too!)

COD2 leads weekly Xbox 360 chart

The ELSPA lead chart is up for this week, and Call of Duty 2 has managed to swing the #1 spot, up from 4th last week. Behind it is PGR3 which has remained pretty consistent. Dead or Alive 4 has fallen to third place followed by Perfect Dark Zero and Full Auto. There hasn't been a huge amount of change from the other end of the chart. NBA Live 06 and Tony Hawk's American Wasteland bring up the rear with no change.

Check out the full board to see how the rest fared.

MetaReview - Full Auto

Last week saw the release of Full Auto, one of the only Xbox 360 games to get released post-launch. We even got our hands on a free XBLM demo last month. So, did the full version expand on the demo's action-packed, albeit repetitive, gameplay? Let's check in with the reviews, including Joystiq's own:
  •  Joystiq (55%) - "In many regards, Full Auto feels like this, a big clump of dough that never made it to the oven. The ingredients are there, but the final product is raw and never rises to the level achieved by great racing titles."
  • 1UP (80%) - "At first glance, it may appear to be a considerably slower Burnout clone, but upon further inspection, the game is an entirely different beast, breathing new life to a genre that is growing ever stagnant."
  • Gamespot (65%) - "Overall, Full Auto doesn't have enough variety to remain entertaining for very long. You might want to rent it and mess around with it for a few days, but the career mode gets repetitive well before it ends and the online doesn't bring much to the overall package."
The bad news is that the consensus seems to be that Full Auto is a one trick pony. The good news is you ought to know if that one trick is enough to get your wallet out. Check out the demo, play it a handful of times.

Full Auto demo explodes onto XBLM

As expected, the demo for Sega's ballet of guns and cars (what else) is up on the Xbox Live Marketplace for your enjoyment. Weighing in at roughly 650MB, it'll take awhile to download.

To all the snickering OXM readers out there who've been happily playing the demo for weeks now, just let us losers have our fun! You can download the Marble Blast demo.

Full Auto demo gonna drop this Wednesday

GameSHOUT is reporting that Sega's gun-infused racing game, Full Auto, will be exploding onto the Xbox Live Marketplace this Wednesday, January 25th. This will be the second title following Fight Night Round 3 to hit the Marketplace before retail stores; the full version of Full Auto is scheduled to hit retailers on February 14th.

[Thanks, Nick]

Full Auto release update

Here's some more release news: the official release date of the vehicular combat game Full Auto has been set for February 14th. Nothing like a little Valentines Day action of high speed racing coupled with explosive carnage to show how much you care. You can also score a demo of Sega's new title in January's issue of Official Xbox Magazine.
