Electronic Arts has today released the first ever shots of Burnout 4 while confirming that the game's official name will be Burnout Revenge.
Due to be released for PS2 and Xbox in September, we're promised that the game will let you "rip through rush hour traffic and lay waste to scores of rubbernecking roadhogs in an over-the-top scene of vehicular mayhem". Crikey.
As well as new race, crash and road rage modes, a Revenge feature pits gamers against the clock in the middle of rush hour

The first official screenshots of Sonic spin-off Shadow the Hedgehog reveal that the game will place a strong emphasis on shooting in addition to the super-speedy platforming for which the Sonic series is best known.
While we've previously run a handful of grabs taken from , these five new shots mark the first hi-res images of the game - which provides players with an assortment of weapons and vehicles with which to progress through the 50 missions - that we've seen.

Take 2 has just released the first shots of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the game based on the forthcoming remake of the classic movie.
Due for release across all major platforms in July (bar DS), the game's set inside Willy Wonka's famous confectionary plant and features a slew of environments, both from the new Tim Burton movie and from the original book.
We're expecting a relatively straightforward platforming experience from the game, although it should at least be interesting
The Soul Calibur franchise is returning to its Sony roots in a deal that will see the beat-'em-up appear exclusively on PS2.
This is a surprising move, considering Soul Calibur II was well received by both Xbox and Gamecube owners, and given how much better it looked on these consoles compared to the PS2 version.
And as anyone who's played the Xbox or Gamecube versions of Soul Calibur II will agree, these latest screenshots on the right don't really live up to that standard.
Featuring the vocal talents of David "Mulder" Duchovny and Marilyn "what a strange looking woman" Manson, and boasting the monster-creating talents of Stan Winston Studios, the time and budget is really starting to pay off for Area 51, which is shaping up to be one of the best shooting games this year.
Which is why we're bringing you a further six actual in-game shots (not the HUD-free, 'posed' images normally sent out), showing just how well this game is coming along.
Following on from , Sony has confirmed the 30 new songs that will feature in SingStar Popworld's repertoire.
While the list is, understandably, aimed directly at the current generation of pubescent pop-heads, a selection of chart-toppers from yesteryear, such as Manfred Mann, Sister Sledge, and Steppenwolf, should ensure the whole family will be able to flex their falsettos and vent their vibratos together.
