Developed exclusively for Xbox 360 and produced by Square Enix (they also do something called Final Fantasy), Project Sylpheed is billed as a colorful arcade-style space combat game, which sounds about right to us. You can find out for yourself, with a demo on Marketplace.
Square says, "If the beautifully animated characters and environments don't catch your eye, piloting the fully weapon-customizable fighter ship through exhilarating battles with swarms of enemy ships and immense vessels
You'd have to be some kind of fool not to like stunts. Crazy vehicles. Stuff blowing up. Wreckage. Spine-shattering injuries. It checks all the right boxes and it's why we're super excited about Stuntman: Ignition, which is hurtling its way to PS2, PS3 and Xbox 360 later this year. We've got a tank full of new images showing off some of the game's stuntacular shenanigans. You can check the gallery of images here.

Scott Steinberg, Sega's US Vice President of marketing, reckons the popularity of the Wii could wear off by 2008, and believes PS3 will emerge victorious in the current console war.
Although the latest sales figures from the NPD Group put Nintendo's console significantly out front, focusing on raw hardware gusto, Steinberg told Reuters that the console "will start to look really dated in a couple years when developers get more value from the 360 and learn more and more about the PlayStation
EA has launched a fancy new website for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
The website should be enough to please any Potter fanatic as it's littered with screenshots (some of which you can see right here), trailers and other things for you muggles to do while you wait for the final book. The videogame is being brought to console, handheld and PC and relives the fifth-installment of the book.
Check out the official website here and look out for the review soon. We've got high hopes
Still without an official release date, Mass Effect is back in the limelight with the release of a fresh batch of screenshots.
Among other things, you'll notice that BioWare has been tinkering with Shepard's head, and he now looks a bit like the similarly named Jack from Lost. (Is there a connection? OMG! - To the message boards!) Consequently, some of the aliens look like Hurley and there are plenty of hatches on Shepard's
After a close encounter with the rather tasty looking PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 alien shooter, BlackSite, we managed to abduct the game's executive creative director, Harvey Smith, for an exclusive interview. Beam your eyes downwards for the full video experience, in which Smith gives us insider info on BlackSite, as well as talking about offending people, the wonders of the Unreal Engine and Halo 3. Oh, and the interview is also peppered with some brand new in-game footage that you'll definitely
According to Newsweek's Level Up column, Microsoft could be close to securing the next Katamari Damacy game, Beautiful Katamari as an Xbox 360 exclusive.
Namco Bandai announced the next-gen installment for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 earlier this year, but according to Level Up an exclusivity deal between Microsoft and Namco Bandai is "very close" to fruition.

Manhunt was all about tension. It was also about suffocating violent sociopaths with carrier bags, but the barbaric brutality was heightened by an ever-present sense of uneasiness that simply refused to let the player relax - even after a blood-hungry hunter had been successfully decapitated with a length of wire.
After giving us an insight into Manhunt 2's environments, developer Rockstar now talks about some of the mechanics that will make Manhunt 2 an even more

There's no denying that the floppy-framed habits of ragdoll physics is a constant source of amusement, although we wish we could witness its loose-limbed magic in a few more alternative scenarios (ie not only when we're throwing grenades at enemies standing foolishly close to exploding barrels). Hurrah for Xbox 360 wreckage festival FlatOut Ultimate Carnage, then, which embraces the beauty of flailing, airborne bodies with such gleeful enthusiasm, as perfectly demonstrated
