Ahead of tonight's E3 unveiling of Killzone for PS3, we've got the first ever real in-game shot for your eyes to see, right here. But, before you look below, try to forget the glorious majesty of that incredo-footage launched at E3 2005. Even though we've just reminded you of it.
See, this image is a bit... meh. It's in a dreary, somewhat badly textured environment. The Helghast soldier standing at the business end of the player's rifle is nicely lit, and yields plenty of
Next month's E3 will be a proving ground for many new PS3 titles, but none more so that Killzone 2. And, if our interpretation of Sony's E3 teaser site is correct, developer Guerrilla Games is planning on making the hotly anticpated blastathon a moving target for critics like us.
Peek at the site and you'll see three marked areas for Sony shows. But there's also a couple snaking, glowing Tron-like things moving through the streets. Hit one of these with your mouse and, voila, it pops up a
E3 might not be the over-the-top gaming extravaganza we've come to know and love (or hate) but there's plenty planned for the July show. Killzone on PS3 is just one of the highlights we're looking forward to seeing. Guerrilla Games gives an update.
As Guerrilla Games prepares for E3 and some Killzone PS3 action, the dev has spoken of the pressures it faces. "Excitement with an underlying: "OH MY GOD WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!" says Test Lead and QA Manager Sebastian
Surrounded by talk of inspiration drawn from Michael Mann movies and coming from the development studio responsible for the Hitman series, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a videogame you should be keeping a very close eye on. Two eyes, in fact. And you can feast those eyes right now on a new trailer that's been released.
Kane & Lynch presents us with the dark, gritty and violent tale of two men bound together by circumstance as they wait on death row for their final sentence. It's a story-driven,
It's not just 360 fans that are getting online FPS-beta-testing love this year. Oh no: It's been confirmed that PS3 owners have a public beta of the upcoming Killzone to look forward to.
Posting on the killzone.com forums, Seb Downie (under the alias 'motherH') revealed: "Of course there is going to be a public beta. I have always said that any game that has an online mode needs to go through a public beta to ensure it works as intended." We agree (give us more demos).
"More on a beta later

Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions interview: many missed it on the
We were hoping to get details on the next Kingdom Hearts project at this event, but unexpectedly, Square Enix has decided not to release anything. A brief new trailer was shown that's basically incomprehensible to anyone that's not a KH superfan. It depicted a seemingly unconscious Sora flying through the air, a giant field filled with dozens of keyblades, and mysterious figures in really cool armor - who were they? We have a hunch that one was an adult Sora, but we could be completely crazy so
While Sony Online hasn't been secretive about the fact that it had a Taiwan-based wing named Soga, the company also hasn't been terribly vocal about just what that studio was doing. Aside from Asianizing a few EQ II models, for all we knew, the folks at Soga were just over there watching God of Cookery and Shaolin Soccer DVDs over and over. Little did we know they were actually hard at work on a videogame adaptation of another of actor/writer/director/everything movies guy Stephen Chow's

A PC game based on the ace martial arts movie Kung Fu Hustle is being developed by Sony Online Entertainment and Shanghai Northstar, specifically for the Chinese market. The game will be a free-to-play online brawler, with optional fees for extra lives, weapons and so-on.
The development team is working closely with the movie's director, Stephen Chow, who is reportedly an avid gamer. His sense of humour will be present in the game, as will familiar characters such as Sin,
Square Enix has previously revealed that it won't be churning out a full-on Kingdom Hearts III any time soon, but according to Square Enix man Tetsuya Nomura the next title is going to be a spin-off of sorts - likely heading to PSP, DS or mobile platforms.
"It is not Kingdom Hearts III, but it is an anecdote... I want to explain what Mickey did in the World of Darkness, and also how he got his keyblade," Nomura told Famitsu.
"I want to make this [new project] slightly different from the
