We can't play flOw on PS3 for more than ten minutes without coming over all sleepy, and now the drowsy gaming is coming to PSP.
Anyone who's played the PS3 game will know what to expect because it sounds like pretty much the same deal on the portable. "Explore the soothing depths of a living underwater environment, discover strange new organisms and embark on a journey of evolution," explains Sony.
"Freely glide around before diving down to the challenges beneath or aggressively consume food
Some people say you can have too much of a good thing, but we say they can bugger right off. A cake is good, right? But are two cakes bad? No, theyre just more cake, and we like cake so well take all we can get. Om nom nom.
In gaming terms, the only thing better than a great videogame is a great videogame that acts as the start of a great franchise. Final Fantasy, Burnout, Super Mario Bros… We love them not only because theyre great but also because of what they later gave us. The only

Two things stand out in the FlatOut series - insane amounts of destruction and the ragdoll minigames, both of which appear to be in full effect on the PSP sequel, FlatOut: Head On.

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?
Easy - when Microsoft announced that this update had something to do with Halo. Starting December 2, you'll be able to download some of the original Xbox's classic titles and play them on your 360. No disc, no ugly

The FlatOut series will be making its debut on a handheld platform next year when FlatOut: Head On is released exclusively for PSP.
We were all about the rag doll physics-based stunt games in the Xbox version of the game. You had to launch your driver through the windscreen of your car at high speeds to hit a range of wacky targets - what's not to like about that?
These 'rag-doll Olympics' - as they're known among fans - will also be featured in full in the portable version.

When Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions hits the PSP next week, it'll bring one of the greatest strategy-RPGs of the PSone era to Sony's handheld. It'll also bring a large cast of complex, semi-identical characters along for the ride; to get you acquainted (or re-acquainted, if you've already played the original), publisher Square-Enix has given us bios for some of the story's key figures - as well as for its new, PSP-only additions. We'll start with a few of the game's

Winning will net you these handsome devils:
That's a set of four Final Fantasy Tactics Trading Arts figurines, featuring Delita, Ramza,

Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions is only a few weeks away, and unlike some PSP remakes, this one packs in plenty of surprises for those who played the original on PSone. One of these is Balthier, the gun-wielding sky pirate from Final Fantasy XII, who's just waiting for you to find him and add his dashing wiles to your ranks. You'll need to ferret him out first, naturally enough, and that takes a little footwork on your part. Luckily, we can tell you exactly how to

Once more, you'll be able to play tinkerman with the England line up, or guide your favourite football club to victory from the comfort of a toilet seat. Yes, Football Manager 2008 is heading to PSP this Christmas. Which means we trot out our usual array of Association Football cliches.
Here goes... It's a marathon, not a sprint this season, which means you'll need your new reserve squad, a fresh feature for PSP. It's a game of two halves, too, but now that the PSP edition has a
