More information has been uncovered regarding the upcoming expansion of the world of Vana'diel.

On 16 March Final Fantasy XII was released for PS2 in Japan and, within just four days, managed to sell a walloping 1.76 million copies. It's a figure that puts the long-awaited RPG outrageously far ahead of Animal Crossing DS, the next bestselling game, with 71,000 copies.
Should we be at all surprised, given that Japanese gamers seem to exist on a diet that's so rich in vitamins R, P and G? Final Fantasy X recently topped a poll run by Japanese magazine Famitsu, asking its readers to vote
Two new titles were unveiled today for inclusion in the Xbox Live Arcade family of casual-friendly games. Both Astropop and Feeding Frenzy will be available for download starting immediately via Xbox Live.
Astropop is a space-themed, block-puzzler where players are challenged to use a magnet ray to grab and match colored blocks in an odd marriage of Tetris and Breakout (or Brickout... or Super Breakout ). Apparently, some form of sci-fi storyline drives you on through levels of increasing
Joining the likes of Blizzard (World of Warcraft) and Sony Online Entertainment (EverQuest), Square Enix held its first annual Final Fantasy XI Fan Festival in Santa Monica over the blustery, unseasonably chill March 10th weekend.

An absurd mishmash of stunts, jumps and racing action takes a turn for the bizarre in FUEL. Adopting a global approach, FUEL enables you to control one of ten characters from a variety of countries and drive them around over 70 tracks strewn across the
The long-awaited RPG Final Fantasy XII is finally shipping in Japan, accompanied by a perfect score of 40 (four reviewers all gave it a 10) in Famitsu, the country's biggest video game magazine. It's a momentous enough occasion that GamesRadar's industry-minded companion site, Next Generation has posted an article exploring the score, the magazine, and Final Fantasy's history in general.

Empire Interactive has released details and shots of FlatOut 2, the sequel to its extreme racing game that combined detail and tight physics with over the top action.
Developer Bugbear Entertainment has taken the predictable bigger and better approach to FlatOut 2, and so has included twice as many new cars, nearly double the number of tracks, a new and improved Championship mode and six new minigames, which usually involve hurling your driver through the windscreen so you can admire the
