Every console fanboy’s most favorite/dreaded time of the month has come again. The NPD sales chart is here and with it comes news of the frontline on the console war, at least for the US side. Though Nintendo DS seems cemented in the top spot, the number one home console in the second month of 2010 was the 360. The Wii was close behind it, with PS3 in trailing that by a small margin.
As part of its Tokyo Game Show presence Sony has produced a set of new screens for all of its forthcoming titles.
Watching things in 3D has never been that successful, has it? Whether it's cringing at a corny shark in Jaws 3D or playing Nintendo's ill-fated Virtual Boy until developing a migraine, no one's quite cracked the technology yet. But, as our friends at OPM UK are finding out, that could well change with the release of James Cameron's Avatar. The game based on the sci-fi epic is being rendered in true 3D - without the need for dodgy red and
Hollywood director James Cameron says digital 3D technology in movie theatres could be "the next big" thing in gaming.
The Terminator and Aliens director's new 3D film, Avatar, is due in cinemas next year but Cameron says the stereoscopic projector technology could be extended to other media as well, such as games.

Yeah, so we're not a film site admittedly, but elsewhere on the GamesRadar network, TotalFilm.com has a load of new Quantum of Solace info you can't miss. Given that a new next-gen Bond game is almost certainly on the cards we reckon you'll forgive us this little introduction.
Details on the over-the-top-Hollywood-style action sequel have been scarce, but today, Eidos has seen fit to show off the very first
THQ has said that it won't be making any more games from the Stuntman or Juiced franchises, presumably because they're not bringing home the bacon.
Within the company's recent financial update is word that THQ expects to record non-cash charges of approximately $27 million related to "the company's decision not to pursue its Juiced and Stuntman intellectual properties" as well as "the cancellation of the PlayStation 3 version of Frontlines: Fuel of War (and Destroy All Humans!: Big Willy

It seems that gaming continues to be a mostly male affair, so what's the best way to penetrate this demographic? Judging by the sex-filled ads we've seen over the years, it looks like the best way to a young man's wallet has - and always will be - through his pants. Read on and
Aaron Rigby, producer on the upcoming Jackass game, has given a short Q&A that touches on what we can expect from the PS2 and PSP bone-breaker.
Where did the inspiration come from for the game?

It's probably a bit late to be classed as "Bringing home E3," but Microsoft and THQ have just slapped a Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights demo on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
It weighs in at a hefty 1.31GB, but that's probably because it lets you try out multiple racing events, and has some real fancy lighting.
