DS Lite, the newly redesigned DS, could be released in the UK as early as this summer should Nintendo's unofficial plans be realised, with all three colours available to eager punters.
With huge numbers of gamers in Japan queuing up for DS Lite - both at the original launch where only Crystal White models were on sale, and the more recent second coming offering the Enamel Navy and Ice Blue options - it's already been a successful birth for Nintendo's handheld update.
However, Nintendo itself
We've seen Medal of Honor: Airborne on PlayStation 3 and it looks brilliant. That's the short version of a day spent behind EA's ring of steel looking at experimental footage of EA's stunning PS3 engine in action. Just take a look at these screens if you want proof.
EA's next-gen version of Medal of Honor uses the full weight of PS3 to create not only the battlefield but the skies above it too. And although the shots we've brought back of the demo look amazing, believe us when we say they
Sony is expected to offer a select number of PSone and PS2 games for download over PS3's online hub, echoing Nintendo's planned back-catalogue digital distribution service for Revolution.
To download the games you'll obviously need a hard disc drive, but though PS3 will support a hard drive it probably won't be packaged with one, much like Xbox 360's Core packs.
360's Xbox Live Arcade downloads have been popular with owners, and it's unsurprising to see Sony embracing online features after
BioWare has revealed today that it is working on a massively multiplayer online roleplayer that "combines the best of BioWare's great past games with a compelling persistent online experience".
The developer of NeverWinter Nights and Baldur's Gate has created a brand new studio in Austin, Texas to work on the MMORPG, which we expect will make its first appearance at this year's E3 games show in
Sony will expose PlayStation 3's final details to the world tomorrow, including the confirmed release date, launch price and online features.
The next-gen details will be revealed during a meeting - which was originally off-limits to the press - in Japan on Wednesday. Now that Sony has opened the doors to the media, expectations are high for an in-depth official announcement for PS3's launch and pricing.
While it might be surprising that Sony would choose such a low-profile event for such a
We've scored a bounty of exclusive new screens of the upcoming action role-player, Mage Knight: Apocalypse, starring the easy-on-the-eyes vampire succubus, Kithana.
With over 1,000 different items found throughout Mage Knight's vast world, you'll be able to deck out each character from head-to-toe with newfound gear. You'll also completely control facial structure, hair and tattoos; making it nearly impossible to create the same character twice (and for obsessive-compulsives to play the actual
Nintendo's done a bang up job of delivering quirky games across all genres, but for action fans, a visceral first-person shooter still hasn't made the cut. That could change with the Revolution.
Ubisoft is preparing a first-person shooter for the console, and seeing as the company's recently teamed with TimeSplitters developer Free Radical, we're hoping to see a quality FPS on launch day. That genre in particular, seems to interest Nintendo.
"I was a developer for many years before my current
Some interesting stuff here. Apparently every Revolution will have a "play control system" that will enable parents to choose which games are playable on the console. Right now we know the European system will conform Pan European Games Information (PEGI), which is the overseas equivalent of the ESRB rating system - no word on if the US version will let people lock out "T" or "M" rated games. If so, you have to wonder what types of games Nintendo may be open to with that level of optional
Got an HDTV? If you're sticking with Nintendo on the next console wave, it probably won't matter. The company's next console, still named Revolution, won't support the high-end 720 and 1080 resolutions of newer televisions or be the strongest gaming machine on the shelf. Late last year, Nintendo offered this official (yet automated) response to anyone who emailed the company about hardware power:
"High definition graphics look fantastic, but come at a price. To shine, high definition games
It's a matter of life or death - at least, in the game. Trauma Center: Under the Knife was one of the biggest cult hits of 2005. The Nintendo DS-based surgery game mixes melodrama and tense twitch-gaming. It also is one of the best arguments for Nintendo's then-unproven touch screen system.
The DS game puts you into the role of a young surgeon, Dr. Derek Stiles. After a botched operation or two, he begins to question his skills. Soon, though, he uncovers both a mysterious parasitic illness and
