  • NEWS: A promotional Need for Speed: Most Wanted taxi/Lamborghini has become the center of attention in the news, thanks to photos surfacing of a policeman snapping a pic of the car, while he himself was driving. As MCV points out, the publicity the incident has drawn can only mean good things for the game’s promotion.
  • VIDEO: The game of the movie based on video-games, Wreck-It Ralph, now has a launch trailer. No indication yet of whether those cool crossover cameos from the film make it into the game.
