Namco's SRS Street Racing Syndicate will finally be released in the UK on PS2 and Xbox by the summer thanks to a new deal with Codemasters, it was announced today.
The Need for Speed Underground-style street racer features locations based on US cities such as LA, Miami and Philadelphia and comprises miles of open streets in which players can push their nitrous-injected vehicles "to the limit". Blimey.
Head-to-head racing is available via split-screen, system link-up or online play while the 40
There might still be 75 days to go but there is already a crumpled and mildly pneumonic nerd in a patch-covered sleeping bag waiting outside Mann's Chinese Theatre. You can even check on him and his vital signs via his webcam at .
But what the Princess Leia-obsessed lard-lad doesn't know is that the game of the film is out 12 days before he will take his first bite of an industrial-sized chilli-dog. Not only that; two of the producers have already spilt the beans on the titular tied-in
Despite being scooped up by Activision at the start of the decade, the Fantastic Four have been doing a better job of keeping a low profile than Sue Storm (AKA Invisible Girl).
That is until now. Because, through a mixture of carefully calibrated gamma radiation and a few phone calls, we have managed to penetrate their barrier and snag some hot shots of the game in both solo mode and two-player, co-op action.
With a script scribbled by Zak Penn, the writer of the X2 X-Men United film, the
Following on from last week's that hip-hopper 50 Cent was set to appear in his own game, we now have the very first footage of the OG in action.

While we revealed to you last year that was on its way, even our almost supernatural detection skills couldn't conjure up any more mystical information beyond that tiny, lonely factoid.
But now we can and, what's more, we can show you the first three screens from True Crime 2 Streets of Hong Kong.
For this follow-up to the spooky but popular True Crime Streets of LA, Nick Kang's patch has moved from South Central to South East Asia and he's making the jump to the next generation of
Day follows night, tick follows tock and contrived blubbing follows an Oscar win. Sometimes life can be gloriously predictable, just like that last 'joke'.
But no one could have possibly predicted that the PC title, would be set for another expansion pack, unless you remember Hot Date, House Party, Livin' Large, Makin' Magic...
With only just released in the US and still yet to hit the shelves over here, some people might think that it is a little early to announce a follow-up, but EA
