Today we've got three new Marvel: Ultimate Alliance videos to share. That makes 11 so far if our counting abilities are to be believed. Then we realize that the game has 20 playable characters and more than 140 cameos - could they all be getting their own special videos? Does the internet have enough space left to contain all this

A new run of the Game On exhibition - the interactive (that is, playable) history of videogames that first ran back in 2002 at London's Barbican - will be opening on 21 October at London's Science Museum.
Now graciously sponsored by Nintendo, despite featuring many of its competitors, this new-and-improved Game On will allow you to get an eyeful of the whopping great machine (no, not a PS3) that ran the world's very first videogame, before carrying onwards through

Rockstar's playground ruckus, Canis Canem Edit, is due for launch on 27 October, but in case you've yet to be introduced to the world of Bullworth Academy - the school-of-hard-knocks-to-the-head where the game is set - here's a brand new trailer welcoming you to the schoolyard. Hit the movies tab above to watch it now.
We've already been hands on with Canis Canem Edit - back when it was still called Bully - and we're impressed. With all the production values, clever

This fresh set of Canis Canem Edit images gives you a perfect peek at the game's in-class minigames, including shots from the English, gym, shop class, photography, art and chemistry lessons you'll be undertaking when the game launches on 26 October. Each subject has five tests and if you ace the challenge you'll earn a special reward.
In chemistry, it's your job to mix a series of bubbling liquids together to create a specific compound. This works by setting a chain
Yeah, we appreciate your attention. We know that the big story today is the Nintendo Wii, so we're not going to bog you down with lots of fluff. Hell, there simply isn't much else to talk about, truth told. Microsoft sent out an embarrassing press release that we deleted without really reading - that may as well have been titled "Remember us! We're here!" Like we'd forget the 360 right as it starts to rock. Why attention whore on Nintendo's big day?
On that note, here are our big
Been wondering how PS3's online service can hope to compete with Xbox Live? We sure have. Looks like the answer has arrived: Next Generation reports that Xfire, a popular PC online game browser and chat system, is prepping a PS3 version - one that will be compatible with the upcoming Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom, according to leaked info. Sony: making a smart decision today. If you can't develop it yourself, just buy it. When asked for comment, Ken Kutaragi, President and CEO of Sony
We've got new screens from Family Guy's television-to-game transforming act, showing flashes from each of the playable characters' stories - dad Peter, baby Stewie and dog Brian all get their 15 minutes of combat, stealth and

EA Sports Cricket 07 is kitting up for a release on PC and PS2 this November, bringing brand new controls to the slogging series with the Century Stick system.
Thanks to its intuitive use of the two analogue sticks, this new system will "change the way all fans approach gameplay," according to developer and publisher EA. So you'll need a gamepad for your PC if you want the full experience.
The Century Stick controls sound like a brilliant addition to the series. As
Sony - bad at hardware. Official.
Don't take it from us - according to one of Sony's top executives, it is. Our brothers at Next Generation report that Ken Kutaragi, the man known as the "father of the PlayStation," has admitted that the component shortages - which have slashed the number of PS3s available at launch to next-to-nothing - prove that "Sony's strength in hardware is in decline." First, he told you you'd need an extra job to buy a PS3. Then, he compared it to a fine dinner in a

Gotham City's self-made superhero, Batman, looks like he's getting suited up for another gaming adventure, but this time the DC Comics icon is going to be Lego-ised courtesy of developer Traveller's Tales.
With two excellent Lego Star Wars games already under its development belt - the second of which, Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, is out next Monday (although we spotted it on sale in more than one shop today...) - the prospect of Traveller's Tales making a
