Rumours: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to be Prequel, Dead Space 3 in production
PSM thinks they've seen a Ghost

According to PlayStation Magazine UK's rumor page, 'the rumour machine', Modern Warfare 3 will be a prequel and feature Modern Warfare 2's Ghost in the lead role. The report claims "insider whispers" leaked the details. Whether or this is true will be clear by year's end if the title stays on course for its 2011 release - if not, Bobby Kotick may be a sad panda. PSM also claims that Dead Space 3 is already in production - a fairly safe rumour given Dead Space 2's positive reception.

Australia to Get R18 Rating by the End of July?
The matter to be settled by July

The Australian Federal Minister for Home Affairs Brendan O'Connor reportedly wants an R18 rating for video games to be decided on in July. O'Connor told Gamespot that, "from the Federal Government's point of view, we'd like the matter determined at the July SCAG meeting, regardless of which way it swings." Adding they need to get the matter resolved as soon as possible, "We can’t continue to go back and forth on this. I can only keep presenting the arguments, and by then, all the ministers will be present, and everyone will have had a good chance to look at the issue properly and determine a final position." Australian gamers will be keeping a close eye on this one.

Bulletstorm Leaked
Pirates claim to have it working on Xbox 360

Last week's Monday Roundup featured stories on Crysis 2 and Killzone 3 leaks. This week it's People Can Fly's turn. A beta version of their upcoming FPS Bulletstorm has found its way onto torrent sites. According to CVG, some pirates are boasting full, working Xbox 360 versions. If what they claim is true and their hardware mod hasn't gotten them banned already, Bulletstorm showing up on their games list will likely get them permanently banned from Xbox Live. It's unclear how the leak occurred, it could be a number of things - hackers, leaks, a break in.

Mw3 a prequel? That would just be a dumb idea if the rumor was true. Leave fans with a cliff hanger ending then give them the middle finger by making a prequel instead.

How about game starts introducing Ghost as a prequel, then jumps forward to the Soap/price story?

I've heard the Ghost rumour many times before, seems like a strange direction to go in.

I would prefer the prequel after the sequel to MW2. I don't see the point in a prequel starring a possibly dead character...

He was shot yeah. Doesn't really mean he's dead but probably is. And what happened to the other sniper support guys? They could have helped him :P. All just theories.

Being shot might not always mean death but then being set on fire, that pretty much finishes anyone off.
