Yeah, we know: you dropped unholy coin on a new PS3, but you can only play so much Resistance before you start lusting over your buddy's 360 or Wii. Be patient, grasshopper - 2007 will make your purchase worthwile. Here's proof:
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - Kojima Productions - PS3 - ETA 2007
The latest chapter in the series is a dizzying mess of questions and expectations. The OctoCam camouflage suit - enabling players to blend in with the colour and texture of the background -
So how much of the game is complete at the moment?
Ginn: Everything from Peru, Greece and Egypt is in place, and what I want to do now is shift the emphasis so that were working from the back - so that the end is perfect. We want the encounter with Natla to be awesome and true to people's memories, then - if we run out of time - at least we've got those things
Today, were going to show you all the kick-ass hardware you should get to create a game-conquering PC. Happy shopping!
Recommended – The size of installs these days (Vista alone is 20Gb) means youll want at least a 300Gb drive, with the SATA-II (aka SATA-300) interface.
Elite – Spend a bit more on a drive with a 16Mb rather than 8Mb cache – this will speed up load times. Even more gets you a super-fast drive that spins at 10,000 rather than
Swap TVs or select the wrong video output and you can be left staring at a blank screen with no way of telling how to switch it back. Not a great situation to be
We havent gone mad. Its a mark of Kojimas genius that such a banal scene burns in our memory. Its all about context - forcing you to reflect on previous battles, while creating epic scale. You really feel like youre on a

To celebrate the launch of Windows Vista - the latest and greatest PC operating system from Microsoft - we've got five copies of Windows Vista Ultimate Edition to give away. Yup - you read that right.
The Ultimate Edition is the most complete version of the new OS, featuring comprehensive gaming, business and home features. Oh, and it would cost you around £370 to buy in the shops. Sooner or later, we'll all be using Vista... so why not have a go at blagging it
How many different villains have tried to take us down over the course of video game history? A million? It's probably far more, actually. Every one of which was ready to blast holes through our chests, pummel us 'til we drooled, or maybe just gnaw our torsos off. Bastards.
But how many have there been whom we could literally stomach? Far fewer. Sure, Pac-Man can choke down almost anything after eating one of his big, flashing drug cakes, but those ghosts don't have any protein at all. Let's
Psst. Wanna hear a secret? You havent seen everything on the PlayStation 2. We know, we know. You used to rock Vice City and own Silent Hill. But tell us, sir. Did you find everything? Are you one of those masochistic collectors who loves to explore every nook and cranny in a game before setting it aside? If so, my hats off to you, young lad. If not, go away kid, you bother us. Everyone else, sit down and check out some of these hidden goodies from the PlayStation 2s golden years. Oh, the
The PC is about to undergo a radical change for the better. Every few years, our beloved platform casually becomes next generation, and it's about to happen again.
As PC gamers, it's great watching the console boys try to show off. High-definition? Big deal. We were playing Quake III at 1280x1024 resolution almost a decade ago. Online gaming? Were so net-savvy we dont even know what real people look like any more. Movie downloads? Youre preaching to the Bitorrenting
