Square Enix today announced the demo for Just Cause 2 will release on March 4th, 2010.

Available for the PlayStation 3 , Xbox 360 and PC, the Just Cause 2 demo will feature 35 square miles of the Lautan Lama Desert, taking up just one of the many islands in the 400 square miles of the Panau archipelago, including towns, villages, military installations, mountain ranges, missions and more.

Hunt down and assassinate one of the game’s 50 military colonels; devastate military bases, bio fuel chambers, government infrastructure and more; hijack tuk tuks, military 4x4s, armoured vehicles, mopeds, helicopter gunships, light aircraft, mini vans and numerous other military and civilian vehicles; freefall from desert outcrops or from burning planes at 20,000 feet; and unlock one full, multi-stage mission, traversing the mountains to a heavily fortified government radar station and ending in an unforgettable desert car chase.

We knew that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 would have some sort of DLC on or around its launch next Tuesday. Today, EA sent out a trailer confirming this notion as well as providing us insight into what it will be and how we'll get it. Bringing the total count to ten, the DLC will include two new multiplayer maps, Laguna Alta, playable in Conquest mode and Nelson Bay, playable in Rush mode. As part of EA's initiative to screw over used-game retailers, it will be free to anyone who purchases the game new or purchases separately the VIP code, which costs $15.

Coming later in March will be another free map pack, giving players a chance to experience the Arica Harbor map in Conquest mode and Laguna Presa map in Rush mode. This will be available in the same manner as the day-one DLC.

Update: Disney has also announced that Split/Second will be releasing in North America on May 18. The game will be releasing on PC. We also received a look at the box art, which you can check out after the break.

Disney announced the European release date for its racer Split/Second, developed by Black Rock Studios. It's also getting a seemingly unnecessary subtitle. Split/Second: Velocity will be releasing in Europe on May 21 for Xbox 360 and PS3.

"Set within the world of a fictional reality TV show, Split/Second: Velocity players don't just try to race to the finish line -- they trigger explosive events that alter the track to take out opponents or create short cuts."

The PC version was mysteriously MIA from the announcement. We'll let you know when we hear more.

Medal of Honor Won’t ‘Wave the Flag’

Speaking with Inc Gamers, EA LA's Sean Decker explained that Medal of Honor follows in the path of films such as The Hurt Locker, which depicts the story of the men on the ground. It's not about politics, it's about soldiers' stories.

"I think, again, it was trying to stay out of all the politics," Decker said.

"There's been a lot of really good movies – the Gotham Awards just came out and Hurt Locker was the top one," he continued. "It has nothing to do with the war in Iraq and why it started, or anything else – it's just about the men on the ground, what they go through on a day-to-day basis, and their emotions."

Decker added that Medal of Honor does not address the reasons we entered the war. "That's not the story we're trying to tell."

"It's not going to be a big propaganda piece where we wave the flag, or anything like that. It's literally about the people that're on the ground."

Medal of Honor is expected to release this fall on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Despite requests for Infinity Ward to add the infamous Nazi zombies of World at War fame into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, it's not happening, says the studio's community manager Robert Bowling.

"There will be no Nazis or zombies in any piece of Modern Warfare 2 downloadable content," he told IGN.

It looks like you'll just have to wait for the next Call of Duty to kill some Viet Cong zombies.

Rockstar Games sent out a new trailer for Red Dead Redemption today called "The Women," introducing, well, the women of Red Dead Redemption.

"Shattering the myth of the demure, fragile women of the West, this revealing and insightful video highlights these sinners, saints, and survivors. Work for these women spans far from the homestead and entangles them in the chaotic, unpredictable, and often brutal environments of the early 20th century. Wielding weapons of destruction, witness the women fight to reclaim the Wild West."

Red Dead Redemption is out for Xbox 360 and PS3 on April 27.

EA: Hardware Prices Too High

While the PS3 and Xbox 360 have seen significant price drops since their respective debuts, particularly the former by way of the PS3 Slim, the price points are still not where EA would like them to be. Even four to five years after their launches, the publisher would like to see lower prices on console hardware.

"I think pricing has not come down as much as we would have expected at this point in the cycle compared to the last," said EA's CFO, Eric Brown, at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference. "We do have a long way to go with respect to pricing. Last cycle, approximately 48 percent of PS2 units were sold at a price point of $149 or less. Clearly at $299, we're nowhere near that price point."

When asked about the lifecycle of this generation's consoles, Brown explained how we likely won't see a quick transition to a new generation like we did when the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii released.

"It's a possibility that we don't see a sharp and distinct console transition like we've seen in the past. Today, we have two of the three consoles operating at full, high-definition and are running games at 60 frames a second," he continued. "If you have a multi-billion capital investment to develop the next generation hardware, the question I would ask is, 'If you were to produce that, what would you display it on?' There's really nothing in terms of broadly available consumer viewing technology other than 1080p televisions. You could upgrade in theory, but you wouldn't get the obvious graphic benefit that we saw that drove the transitions in the prior cycle."
