Software... update. Two extremely dull words that, when combined, become even duller. So why is the entire gaming community currently abuzz about the next iteration of the Xbox 360 dashboard? When did mandatory software upgrades become so dramatic and controversial?

Crash Bandicoot will return to Nintendo DS this October in Crash Boom Bang!, a collection of multiplayer minigames featuring the various creatures from the Crash universe.
The premise behind the game is that Crash and his pals are involved in a worldwide race for a multi-million dollar prize. Little do the money-grabbing friends know that the race sponsor, Viscount Devil, is using the race as a means to find the 'Super Big Power Stone' that could help fulfil his dreams of

We'll be reporting on Eidos' new online racer Crash 'n' Burn when we get our hands on it shortly at E3. For now, content yourself with the game's debut trailer.Although the trailer is completely gameplay-less, it's a very cool FMV dip into racing mentalism, with two groups of cars - hundreds of vehicles strong - storming across the desert for an earth-shattering head-on collision. Cars flip and fly into the air, causing mayhem and multiple pile-ups, while angry hogs strain at breakneck speed

All right, so maybe we sniggered just a bit. But it's hardly award-winning comedy gold, is it?

Now weve seen it all. Right at this very minute, Crash Bandicoot is standing outside our UK offices, handing out ice-creams, Red Bull and vodka from a wonderfully decorated Crash of the Titans ice-cream van.
As we pointed out in our recent hands-on, Crash of the Titans has the potential to be more than just another kid's game. Stay tuned for a full review soon and in the meantime check out our video interview with the developer and collection of
The Crash Bandicoot series has changed hands more than Blockbuster DVD, and with Radical Entertainment now heading up development they're reinventing the orange critter for his current-gen debut.
Crash of the Titans will appear on Wii, PS2, DS, PSP and 360, and will follow an action-orientated theme in which he has the power to "hijack" the minds of others.
Crash himself has learned a few new fighting moves too, now able to string together a selection of punches and kicks into a ninja combo
