    Hardly a cameo as John DiMaggio is a pro voice actor! he's Marcus Fenix in Gears of War.

    Oh, and Wikipedia says he's been in these games:

    well, I thoroughly enjoyed keifer sutherland in waw because I am a 24 fan, I will judge this one based on how well he does his voice acting job, not his rep as skill-less rapper ;)

    Can't you just visualize the marketing meeting to make this decision?

    "We need something to really GRAP our hip, younger players."

    LIke what?

    "How about a badass rap dude. LIke that guy who did that other game recently. What's his name, Two Bits?"

    Fifty Cent?

    "Yeah! Get him in the game NOW!"

    Butcher Bay was the first non-Futurama instance where I heard his voice acting. And it was a cameo as he only had two or so phrases in the game. He played an unnamed guard that is overheard shouting at a prisoner.

    It's semantics, but a cameo is "a bit part played by a famous actor who would ordinarily not take such a small part". DiMaggio has played many small/unnamed parts, so it's not really a cameo.

    They could get a real soldier to do it £50, and some of them sound proper hard (having talked to ALOT).

    You never know, he might be doing it for free? :S

    I was going by a small theatrical role usually performed by a well-known actor and often limited to a single scene; broadly : a brief appearance or role, but I do find your definition to be better. In that respect, no, it's not really a cameo. I sit corrected. =)

    Argh! Why?! It's not like they need the money...

    I hate stuff like this, it's all just an obvious cash-in. Like Soul Calibur IV; ruined by stupid Star Wars characters with a lame ass story.

    ot: at the current exchange rate, 50cent is equal to about 30pence.
    ;-)

    Is this why the game is gonna be £54.99/£69.99/ and god forbid £119.99. We are paying way more than 50pence extra here...

    Ok, why is there a picture of a 50 pence coin? You should be showing a 20p and a 10p together... At least I think 50c is about 30p at the current exchange rate.

    Yo thriddy!!! ;)

    Maybe he should change his stage name to "Ten Bob"!

    I should do the voice over would only cost you a decent fish supper and a couple of pints.
