Forum trolls across America have been reporting that a GTA teaser trailer was shown from 2:00am to 2:30am EST on the FX channel's infomercial slot.
What's intriguing about the ad is the way it mimicked the holding page you see at the official site and then... well that's it. It did nothing else. According to those who saw it (insomniacs and night shift workers by the sound of it) it displayed the GTA IV logo and a countdown ticked away in the background. At the end of the half hour the usual
The Venezuelan Solidarity Network has taken issue with developer Pandemic's Mercenaries 2 and they want production stopped, targeting Bono as the one who could ultimately do the deed.
The organization is collecting signatures of religious leaders for a letter that it plans to send to U2's lead singer in early April, "to ask him to use his considerable influence to stop the sale of the game."
Bono is on the board of Elevation Partners, which has strong ties with the partnership established

Shopping on PS3? Yes, with PlayStation Store you can. Simply get your console online and you'll be able to indulge in some retail therapy from the comfort of your own pants. Games, demos, trailers and extra content can all be downloaded straight to your PS3 (expect to add music and movies to that list in the future).
Like any high street shop, you have to purchase goods from PlayStation Store with real money. To make things super easy - and unlike Microsoft and Nintendo
Cliff "Gears of War" Bleszinski has been blasted into the videogame stardom spotlight after the huge success of his flagship 360 shooter and now has his sights set on the future (surely working on Gears 2).
We recently managed to snatch a few moments with gaming's best-groomed designer at the Game Developers Conference, where he nabbed three awards including best game for Gears and took to the podium to tell a gushing audience just how he thought up the UE3 chainsaw madness.
In our chat Mr. B

Here at GamesRadar towers we're ecstatic, exhilarated and lots more adjectives about PS3. Our already dog-eared dictionaries have been well and truly thumbed over the past few days as we search for different ways to express our anticipation at the prospect of exploring another huge next-gen console.
Come on, join in the party. 2007 will be a great year for PlayStation 3 for many reasons - here's why we're getting all flustered for Sony's new

As part of our PS3 launch week coverage extravaganza, we've joined forces with our allied friends at Ubisoft to give one very lucky GamesRadar reader the chance to win a PlayStation 3, plus a copy of the dog fighting aerial ace, Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII.
In addition to being a games playing powerhouse, Sony's shiny new console does movies (Blu-ray and DVD), music, photos, lets you browse the internet, socialise online... Basically, PlayStation 3 is a totally

The days of PlayStation being a dedicated slave to games are over. Indeed, PlayStation 3 is a function juggling powerhouse that, in addition to its gaming credentials, can do movies, music, photos, internet browsing and social networking. Of course, with all these new tricks comes the necessity for an extensive menu interface - something that we've never seen on a PlayStation console.
So, take a look at the movie below and say 'hello' to PlayStation 3's Cross Media Bar

In case you hadn't heard, Sixaxis is Sony's brand new joypad. There's no more DualShock (because it doesn't shake anymore), so out goes vibration and in comes tilt-sensing in six dimensions plus wireless Bluetooth connectivity. So how does PS3's new wavy about controller compare with our old rumbling PS2 pal?
Well, the two are amazingly similar. They are exactly the same size and shape. The only differences are a thicker centre section and trimmed away plastic around
Despite its detrimentally frustrating difficulty, the original Stuntman on PS2 had one huge positive going for it: a kick-ass concept. Relocating the racing genre to a blockbuster movie set is genius, as driving through explosions and rocketing off ramps is way more exciting than simply motoring towards the finish line.
The 360 / PS3 / PS2 sequel, Stuntman: Ignition, is hoping to do that concept the justice it deserves. As we reported in our recent hands-on impressions, the gameplay is much
