Sources at Nintendo have let slip details on a Revolution version of Trauma Center, the incoming DS cartoon surgeon sim that uses the handheld's stylus for some nifty operating room action.
The game is set to be revealed officially at this year's E3 game show in May, and would be a brilliant way of introducing prospective punters to Revolution's innovative controllers should it arrive as a launch game for the decidedly different next-gen console.
"Nintendo doesn't comment on rumour or
World of Warcraft developer Blizzard has confirmed that the massively multiplayer online game will not be released for Xbox 360, despite what many gamers might have expected.
"We do not have any plans to take WoW to Xbox 360," Blizzard told games trade publication MCV. "WoW is built as a PC gaming experience. Porting PC games to console often compromises games and we'd never allow the WoW gameplay experience to suffer."
There's a small consolation though - Blizzard added that it wouldn't rule
The creator of Grand Theft Auto has announced a brand new game for Xbox 360 - Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis, due for release on 26 May, priced at £30.
Developed by Rockstar's San Diego team - who created free-roaming racer Midnight Club and wild west shooter Red Dead Revolver - table tennis might be a gigantic leap from the crime-antics of GTA, but it's still getting the full, quality-obsessed Rockstar treatment.

The land of gaudy costumes and debauchery, Las Vegas has welcomed any number of sleazy activities into the cold glow of its neon bosom. Home to the rowdy crowd that always delivers the best Cops episodes, it's hard to imagine a crisis crazy enough to warrant the attention of the US Military. But, when not even CSI: Las Vegas can handle the heat, you need to call in the surgically stealthy elites known as Team Rainbow for some squad-based, tactical counter-terrorism gunplay.
Las Vegas, held
International killer of mystery, Agent 47, has recently been set up with a revamped website to showcase his latest assassin antics in his upcoming game, Hitman: Blood Money. The new site (www.hitmanbloodmoney.com) features new screens and videos, but you can save a pile of time and just scope them here instead.
Hitting the States for the first time, Agent 47 comes strapped with a new repertoire of killing moves and a system for upgrading his weapons arsenal. Blood Money will also record 47's
Ubisoft has confirmed today that Brothers in Arms 3 will be released for Xbox 360 later this year, potentially launching before the PS3 version that was announced last year.
The next-gen sequel sees Baker and company returning to the frontline during WWII, with destructible environments - bullets smashing through wood, doors blowing off their hinges - and new leaning and blind firing abilities for your team that help them keep behind cover while still laying down suppressing fire.

Ubisoft has announced Rainbow Six: Vegas, a new episode in the terrorist-bashing series set for release on next-gen consoles later in the year.
Beyond the title, Ubisoft has confirmed no further details, although it'd be safe to assume that the title indicates a focus on counter-terrorist action in the heart of Las Vegas - which is a big step away from the globe-spanning missions in previous games.
Ominously, Rainbow Six: Lockdown - the last game in the series - was shoddy and wholly
Codemasters has snapped up the rights to bring Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar to European gamers later this year.
The game is currently in development by Turbine Inc, who has been lovingly recreating JRR Tolkien's Middle-Earth for MMORPG purposes.
The action will take place in the north western region of Middle-Earth called Eriador, where the Shire and the Elven Rivendell are located, and its here that the Free-Peoples are fighting a threat from the realm of Angmar and the
Creepiest dude ever, Sam Fisher, has been sighted slinking around without his notorious Night Vision goggles strapped to his dome. We've uncovered the latest evidence regarding an alleged undercover assignment in a maximum security prison, but details are sketchy. Fisher's status as CIA spook may also be in question as it appears he may have fallen prey to that eternal spy-killer: buying his own cover.
Guide Sam through a multilayered moral quagmire and decide for yourself whether he's gone
KOEI announced today that Winback 2: Project Poseidon will be available next month on PS2 and Xbox. Similar to the original shootfest Winback, you direct a team of three highly trained counter-terrorism operatives in their desperate attempt to retrieve a doomsday device that threatens the entire world. Granted, we've seen this setup about a million times by now, but terrorists apparently never learn their lesson.
Although the plot doesn't seem original, a new "route" system that provides the
