Beta for the next Xbox Dashboard announced and more news for you to shake a controller at.

Ok first things first. I did not post yesterday but that is because things got a little busy and by the time my "day" was done I was ready to hit the sack with the wife and a "cheesy" movie.

Xbox Dashboard Beta announced today and it's already full.

Earlier today Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb posted instructions how to be in the Xbox Love Dashboard Update. All you had to do was sign up for the beta, Well seems like many people wanted in because as of this writing the update membership is full. Looks as if everyone is going to have to wait till the fall to play with the new dash.

Everyone else who is in the beta will not be able to write about their experiences or take pictures until the non-disclosure agreement expires. A traditional going with Microsoft betas. At least it gives you a chance to be part of an "elite" group.

Crysis 3 producer hinting around possible Wii U version

Producer Mike Read said that Crysis 3 is a possibility for the Wii U, stating the company is working with Nintendo but yet not making an official announcement.

In an interview with CVG he went on to say "I wouldn't say there's no chance." he also added that "I mean the Wii U still doesn't have a released date attached to it at this point. Who knows what the future will bring with it. I can definitely say that we are working with Nintendo, and that is all I can say on that front."

Pretty interesting notes if you ask me. Guess we will have to wait and see. Crysis 3 is due February 2013 after the expected holiday release of the Wii U.

Borderlands GOTY for PC %75 off on Amazon, get Borderlands 2 discounted with purchase

Ok for those of you who have not played Borderlands:Game of the Year Edition now is the time. Amazon is offering the game for $7.49 until July 30th. Here is some other good news those who have or do purchase the GOTY through Amazon -will receive a credit towards their Borderlands 2 pre-order and 10% off.

They also have it if you have a few friends to go for the Borderlands2 4-pack, the GOTY purchase will get you an $18 credit towards the pre-order, and that 10 percent stacks with the current 10 percent sale they have now. Even if you don't have friends you can receive $6 credit, along with the stacked 10 percent discounts.

Steam is also having the same deals and has Borderlands free to play this weekend. Definitely a must buy for those that missed out on this gem.

Battlefield 3:Aftermath is now official adds four maps in post-earthquake Tehran

A few months ago the Battlefield 3:Aftermath DLC was leaked  and after recently being mentioned it is now been described in detail by EA. The DLC will be four new maps that all take place in a "post-earthquake Tehran," along with the maps are new vehicles, a new game mode and new assignments, achievements and dog tags to earn.

There is no indication to when the DLC will drop nor any information as to what the new game mode will be. Currently the content is listed as "TBA"  for both premium and standard BF3 players. Considering it is making news I am sure it is only a matter of short time till it releases.
