Whoa, what?s this? Why are we breaking our news reporting silence when we?ve already said our goodbyes for the holidays? For awesome ?Breaking News,? of course!
What?s so newsworthy that we felt the need to come out of hiding?
Release dates have been announced for DC Universe Online as well as the European version of LittleBigPlanet 2, the first map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops has been revealed, and other interesting morsels have emerged, too.

And what about that release date for LittleBigPlanet 2 in Europe, the UK and other PAL regions? January 19th 2011 is the date European-types can look forward to, Australasian inhabitants can circle January 20th on their calendar, and gamers in the UK and Ireland can book January 21st off.
Also, tons of new pieces of downloadable content have been released today on Xbox LIVE Marketplace (and will be releasing later today on the PlayStation Network), including the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 ? Vietnam add-on, the ?Dead Money? add-on for Fallout: New Vegas, a car and event pack for Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, and a demo for Dead Space 2!
