Here's a hefty visual dose of Hitman: Blood Money, Agent 47's latest murderous outing, which sees the ruthless assassin operating in America for the first time and enables you to pimp your weapons with the dirty cash you bag for each hit.
These images give you an idea of the locations you'll be stalking through, with one of 47's operations taking place in a church, complete with beefy masked men and shamefully immodest women dressed as angels.
Other levels look to demand that you commit your
World of Warcraft developer Blizzard has confirmed that the massively multiplayer online game will not be released for Xbox 360, despite what many gamers might have expected.
"We do not have any plans to take WoW to Xbox 360," Blizzard told games trade publication MCV. "WoW is built as a PC gaming experience. Porting PC games to console often compromises games and we'd never allow the WoW gameplay experience to suffer."

Two of Unreal Tournament 2007's bigwigs took the stage at Midway's media event in late February to give the press a small but potent peek at the upcoming PS3 and PC shooter. Throughout the presentation, Mark Rein, vice president of developer Epic Games, stressed that they were showing “a lot of unfinished stuff, a lot of unpolished stuff." Honestly, you'd never know it.
While Rein did announce that the demo was running on a quad SLI rig (that's four blazing-fast NVidia GeForce 7800 GTX
Microsoft is making a move into the world of handhelds with Origami Project, a portable, paperback-sized PC making an appearance in an online video and an obscure website this week.
But don't expect Origami to challenge PSP or DS. The video shows one user in the middle of a frantic bout of Halo, but a source close to Microsoft has stated that this is the first in a series of touch-screen PDA style devices - it's not a portable Xbox.

Aging electro-rock group Depeche Mode has recorded a Simlish version of its upcoming single Suffer Well to be featured in the new Sims 2 expansion pack Open for Business, which is out today.

We've been hit by a salvo of eye-burstingly good images from Stranglehold, Midway's John Woo-inspired bullet festival for PS3, PC and Xbox 360.
The game stars a digital version of Hong Kong cinema hero Chow Yun-Fat, and features the sort of high-action gun battles that he's famous for - complete with twin pistols, restaurant shootouts and dodging acrobatics.
