IGN UK Podcast #147: Let The Games Begin

Welcome to another episode of the IGN UK Podcast.<br/><br/>All of us in London are currently bracing ourselves for the inevitable hell that will be the Olympic Games. Sorry, we meant the greatest sporting and cultural event in the world.<br/><br/>But before we discuss which video game characters would dominate the Olympics - warning there are quite a few lengthy digressions including just how tall is Sonic the Hedgehog - we talk about the week's big news, including:<br/><br/><li> Is plagiarism really rife in the games industry? Randy Pitchford thinks so.<br/><br/><li> Minecraft breaks records on Xbox Live<br/><br/><li> Does The Hobbit really need to be a trilogy?<br/><br/>We also discuss the teaser trailer for Zack Snyder's Superman movie, Man of Steel, which you can watch now:<br/><br/> <object id="vid_917db9d23a60083fa05472cfd0f14cad" class="ign-videoplayer" width="468" height="293" data="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/swf/IGNPlayer.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="movie" value="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/swf/IGNPlayer.swf"/><param name="" value="true"/><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"/><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000"/><param name="flashvars" value="url=http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/07/26/man-of-steel-jor-el-trailer"/><param name="wmode" value="opaque"/></object> <br/><br/>So what you waiting for?
