Details on the first supposed episodic PlayStation 3 game have emerged on the internet, apparently stemming from an E-Rewards pricing survey, and then promptly on to gaming forums.
Nine-to-Five, as it's called, is a cartoon "episodic sitcom" which will apparently arrive in the form of four three hour episodes, downloadable from the PlayStation Network for $5 each. Alternatively, you can pre-order the whole lot for $14, says E-Rewards.

The first early-doors details of Earth No More - a PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 game being jointly developed by new studio Recoil Games and Duke Nukem creator, 3D Realms - have appeared on the internet, revealing some plot and gameplay info.

Area 51's due on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 and drops players into the combat boots of a military veteran charged by the government to lead a squadron of specialized soldiers against unidentified enemy races in the Rachel, Nevada area (you can breathe in now). Midway's previously said about the

During our first look at Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare we got chance to sit down with the developer's president Grant Collier. In the middle of a lengthy global press tour, Collier looked absolutely exhausted, but it's amazing what some caffeine can do.

Fans of the testosterone-fueled and haphazardly programmed Spike TV already know the name Afro Samurai, a hyper-violent anime that aired in five edited increments earlier this year. The Samuel L. Jackson-propelled anime will now become a video game that its US developers claim will be a "soulful, powerful and uncut" experience.

EA has launched a fancy new website for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
The website should be enough to please any Potter fanatic as it's littered with screenshots (some of which you can see right here), trailers and other things for you muggles to do while you wait for the final book.

Check out the official website here and look out for the review soon. We've got high hopes
After a close encounter with the rather tasty looking PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 alien shooter, BlackSite, we managed to abduct the game's executive creative director, Harvey Smith, for an exclusive interview. Beam your eyes downwards for the full video experience, in which Smith gives us insider info on BlackSite, as well as talking about offending people, the wonders of the Unreal Engine and Halo 3. Oh, and the interview is also peppered with some brand new in-game footage that you'll definitely
According to Newsweek's Level Up column, Microsoft could be close to securing the next Katamari Damacy game, Beautiful Katamari as an Xbox 360 exclusive.
Namco Bandai announced the next-gen installment for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 earlier this year, but according to Level Up an exclusivity deal between Microsoft and Namco Bandai is "very close" to fruition.
