The Big News - Irrational Games unveils its new project, Bioshock Infinite, but is it more than more Bioshock?

Team ICO's Fumito Ueda tweeted there "should" be an update to The Last Guardian at TGS this year.

After having been burned in their last Big Game outing (Brutal Legend), Tim Shafer's Doublefine Productions is opting to make several downloadable games. Costume Quest is the first, and will be out in time for Halloween 2010.
