Wrapping up my coverage of my 50 Cent interview from earlier this week, I had to share this one "Rock Band" story he told me at the G-Unit offices regarding the first time he played MTV's game. It's a little short on details, but use your imagination... Read More...

I interviewed 50 Cent at the G-Unit offices in Manhattan today to discuss his new game, "50 Cent: Blood on the Sand." I wrote about plenty of 50 Cent's gaming thoughts on MTVNews.com, where 50 talks about the game, what's being played on his tour bus and how he wants to make a "Saint's Row" movie. This clip here is 50 answering my question about what kind of game he'd like to make next. He wants to do a "Tetris"-style game. And then he gets to talking about that no-good "Pac-Man" cheater he sometimes raps with.

50 Cent's next video game is just a couple of weeks away from release and, thanks to  the game's publisher THQ, we've got some exclusive new "50 Cent: Blood on the Sand" screenshots. Click the image above to see five new shots of the M-rated shooter. And remember, in our hands-on impressions of this game from last spring, we were plesantly surprised by how fun and arcade-y the game is.  The game's out on Feb 24 on the XBox 360 and PS3.

Over at MTVNews.com, I filed a story with quotes from 50 Cent talking about his new video game "Blood on the Sand," due in January from THQ.

In an interview with MTV UK earlier this week, the rapper said he's played the game and he's pleased with how it turned out. In fact, he's so enthused at how well it plays that he'll challenge any gamer -- right now.

"I actually had the opportunity to play it, and I'm pretty good at it," he said. "If anybody out there wants to create a challenge or wants to bet some money online, we could play the game right now."

He also revealed that 19 exclusive tracks will be included in the game.

The analyst didn't name any games, but technically, he had to be referring to the likes of "Ghostbusters," "50 Cent: Blood On The Sand" and the new "Riddick," which all appear to have found new publishing homes.

So, Mr. Kotick, why not keep hold of these games which were deep into development and anticipated by gamers? Read More...
