Devil May Cry 3 is an origins prequel to the original game. The graphical upgrade is to be expected but Capcom have also introduced some major new elements and tweaks to the series.In brief, the story plays out the path that led Dante to being character that you know and love.

First-person shooting excellence is what we now expect after the brilliant TimeSplitters 2 and we're confident that Future Perfect will provide just that. In your race against time to trace the origin of the TimeSplitters before everything goes the way of the pear, you'll travel between the years 1914 and 2041. A very neat feature is that you'll team up in the various time zones with past and future versions of yourself. How cool is that?

We were recently privy to a private screening of Prince of Persia 2 (working title) and what we've seen at E3 confirms our first impressions that the game has taken a very dark turn indeed. As executive producer of POP 2, Yannis Mallat, said, with a wicked smile spreading across his lips, "No more Aladdin". The story revolves around the mistake the Prince made by breaking the hourglass in Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. An incarnation of Fate is stalking the Prince so he embarks on a violent

The game's two other cities, San Fierro and Las Venturra are based on San Francisco and Las Vegas respectively. There'll be countryside between the three main areas, each of which is roughly the same size as the whole of Vice City. Big, in other words. Overall, the game will be an incredible four to six times the size of its predecessor.Main character Carl

Kazunori Yamauchi, boss of Gran Turismo 4 developers Polyphony Digital, has revealed more details about the game's newly-announced Photo mode. Designed to enhance the non-driving segments of the game, the function - which Yamauchi says offers "a new way for players to enjoy Gran Turismo from a different angle, with infinite possibilities" - basically allows you to save and print images from the game.The inspiration for the slightly odd-sounding feature is that it combines Yamauchi's twin

North Korea is the acceptable face that most developers appear to be using now as home to world-threatening bad guys and Ghost Recon 2 falls in line with that philosophy. It's a squad-based military shooter and Ubi Soft are using the buzzword 'immersion' as the hook to their latest in the Ghost Recon franchise. 'Being there' is the in-place to be and we're promised the chaos of war in the intense battle sequences.
