Nintendo, as always, has the bases covered. Sooner or later, the Wii will be home to Mario, Zelda and Metroid - not to mention Starfox, F-Zero and a whole bunch of other series you've loved before. Problem: Metroid Prime doesn't quite deliver balls-out first person action, as great as it is.

Capcom has today confirmed that a special Wii-mote-using version of Resident Evil is already in development for Wii. What it hasn't said though is if the game is a version of the already revealed PS3 and Xbox 360 game, Resident Evil 5, or if a whole new instalment in the survival-horror series is on its way.
While the release date and name of the game also remain under wraps, Capcom did manage to issue a long but rather vague statement:

Insomniac Games, the developer behind Ratchet & Clank, has chosen Sony's conference as the place to unveil its first PS3 game - a slick and incredibly quick first-person shooter known as Resistance: Fall of Man.

Ubisoft has confirmed that its upcoming Rayman game - now officially called Rayman Raving Rabbids - will be a launch title for Nintendo's Wii and that Michel Ancel, the Rayman creator and brain behind King Kong and Beyond Good & Evil, will oversee the project.
Despite being pencilled in to appear on pretty much every format for this generation and next, the only droplets of info revealed so far about the return of the helicopter-eared oddball come from the Wii-mote-using Wii
RPG fans will get another cel-shaded adventure this October, but Rogue Galaxy isn't quite the sword-and-sorcery slasher they might be expecting. You'll use swords, sure, and there's plenty of magic, but how many fantasy games send you to the stars to search for treasure with space pirates?
We've already covered the major bases in our preview, but the brand-new trailer from Sony completes the picture. Just click on the Movies tab above, and you'll get a full-motion introduction to young pirate
Reservoir Dogs the game, based on Quentin Tarantino's classic '90s film, is to be released for Xbox, PS2 and PC this fall, publisher Eidos confirmed today.
The third-person shooter will stay true to the chronology and plot of the diamond-heist-gone-wrong film, while trying to fill in the gaps that the film doesn't cover, such as: what really went on at the heist? What happened to Mr. Blue and Mr. Brown? And perhaps it will clear up once and for all who shot Nice Guy Eddie.
The happy-go-lucky world of Rayman is about to get overrun by some zany bunnies. Ubisoft announced today that the fourth installment of the Rayman series has been infiltrated by a pack of fuzzy yet totally deranged
Rockstar is convinced its Rockstar Table Tennis game is the most accurate simulation of the sport to ever hit consoles. They might be right by default - have you ever played another?

Today, the company has released a swath of new movies depicting the different shots you can accomplish in the game, in fine technical detail Click on that "movies" link and you'll see the hardcore side of Rockstar's biggest surprise of 2006.
Namco has announced Ridge Racer 7 for PlayStation 3, and the company confirmed today that it'll be touching down this November as a PS3 launch title.
It's certainly a surprise, given that we were expecting a buffed-up conversion of the Xbox 360's Ridge Racer 6 to appear. But a whole new game?
It's not clear whether that's a global launch for RR7 to go with the PS3's worldwide release, however, or if it's just for Japan. If we had to bet, our money would go on the latter.
What we do know is
