Tekken 6 on PS3 will incorporate fully-online fighting via the PSN, Sony has confirmed.
No specific gameplay scenarios were revealed, although we'd hope to see more than just straight one-on-one fights. Online tournaments would be nice, and maybe some multiplayer team battle modes too.
Online fighting will be one of many exclusive features to appear in the PS3 port of the arcade game.
The arcade game will be out later this year in Japan, with the PS3 version expected by mid-2008. But if you

The first teaser trailer from Codemasters first-person shooter Turning Point: Fall of Liberty is available to view now on the interweb.
Set in the early 1950s, Turning Point spins an alternate-reality yarn where the Nazis were triumphant in Europe in World War II and have launched an assault on the US. You play New York City construction worker Dan Carson, who turns reluctant freedom fighter in order to survive the invasion and fight back against the Nazi war machine.

The title may shout Tony Hawk, but the games have always been about you. Immersive controls... deep customization... and, occasionally, even face mapping technology. Not many franchises work this hard to inject their players - through both look and feel - into the experience.
Proving Ground, the next installment in the Tony Hawk empire, plans to take these character building ideals to a new extreme. Creating your virtual persona won't happen so much in the startup screens as it does in the
Kuju is promising to set new high standards in the first-person genre with its new Unreal Engine 3 shooter, To End All Wars, in development for 360 and PS3 and due to release in Summer 2008.
It's to World War I we go, this game set in the war-torn trenches of Europe, and Kuju hopes to put together the most accurate recreation of the conflict ever.
"The authenticity of the conflict has been put at the heart of the project. Period locations will be recreated in lavish detail, only weaponry of

No, your eyes aren't lying. This brand new shot for Tekken 6 would appear to suggest that chickens are finally making an appearance in the long-running brawler's fist-fighting action. Either that, or it's a neat new way to indicate when someone's been stunned by a particularly heavy thwack to the chops.
We've a mountain of other new images in our gallery, too. There's a superbly detailed screenshot of robo-battler Jack, some salacious views of Tekken's other 'chicks', and
Like many franchises that refuse to die, Transformers have kept coming back for years since their inception - and for good reason - the concept works. Gigantic robots turn into mundane vehicles. Here we have a quick rundown of the entire series to gear us up for the upcoming film and game of the same
Transformers: The Game should be released around the same time the highly-anticipated movie hits cinemas. Can't wait that long? Then you need to check out the game's intro video right now.
We're still reserving judgment on Transformers: The Game as we've not seen anything new on it for a while now. Make of that what you will.
But the game's intro looks awesome even if it has clearly borrowed a few Hollywood set-pieces from the action movie department.
You can check out the opening to the
So Time Crisis 4 is coming to PlayStation 3. But considering traditional light guns work with LCD televisions, how are we going to play it?
The Japanese site Gamewatch reveals the answer; Namco's new Guncon 3 is adopting a Wii-like sensor bar tech to get its shootouts working on PS3.
