Two new Kingdom Hearts titles have just been announced at the Tokyo Game Show. DS owners will get 358/2 Days, while PSP owners can look forward to Birth by Sleep.
Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days for the DS will mark the return of the heartless, Roxas, and looks it looks like the game will reveal more details about the mysterious Organization XIII.
The brief trailer showed more of Twilight Town. Expect more languid cutscenes as kids sit on dangerous precipices at the train station's
Sony's annual E3 press conference opened with what could have been the biggest reveal of the entire show if it hadn't been leaked last week: the new $499 price of the PS3, as well as the introduction of a new $599 model that comes with an 80GB hard drive and a copy of online-enabled dirt racer Motorstorm. This left biggy-wig Jack Tretton (who began the event speaking through his character in the PS3 virtual world Home) to launch right into the publisher's game-centric, four-part

The highly-anticipated PlayStation 3 sequel to Guerilla Game's Killzone is to be officially unveiled at next month's Game Developer's Confrence.
Well placed US sources have revealed to us that the flagship Sony shooter will be shown in full glory at the San Francisco event, perhaps even in the form of a playable demo.
As well as its high price point, the PS3 (like most consoles) has faced criticism for a lack of really high profile, compelling games which make it a "must buy" and the big
It's the end of another great year for gamers. Two new systems launched. Two handhelds waged bloody battle. And next gen gaming got a big kick in the pants - thanks to a year of lonely rule by the Xbox 360. PC gaming fought fire with nukes, waging its battle against the console-based onslaught. In short, it ruled.
How do we handle this? We're handing out our gleaming Platinum Chalice to those games and systems which gave us the business. No boring list of 37 different strategy games, divided
A trio of trademark applications have appeared in Japan rekindling hope that the Katamari series may make a return. For last month developer Namco Bandai registered three new names: Beautiful Katamari Damacy, Katamari Damacy Tres Bien and Katamari Damacy-kun.
And while our hopes have been raised again, the names can't be taken as proof of the existence of new games because applications can also cover potential TV shows, movies, fluffy dolls, sweets and just about anything

PSP's third-person Killzone will feature infrastructure play and new missions as free downloadable add-ons "shortly after launch," it has recently been revealed.
Killzone: Liberation offers furious futuristic firefights but many gamers had an altogether different F-word on their lips when they learned it would not be supporting full online (or infrastructure) multiplayer - only ad-hoc mashups - when it launches next

Set to storm PSPs in November, the little brother of the PS2 (and, eventually, PS3) war-torn shooter has been shaping up nicely since E3 - and we've got a fresh trailer and snatches of in-game footage to prove it.
Check the movies tab to satisfy your rag-doll death animation fetish - those Helghast goons need only a little high-impact encouragement to launch themselves over railings and walls - and also for a glimpse of the game's slick control scheme. Ordering your
