As Tony Hawk's Project 8 skates closer to its November launch on PS3 and 360, we've got in-game footage of the slick and solid new title in action - check the Movies tab above.
The PS3 version will be making full use of the SixAxis controller, with every single move mapped to a tilt or shove function - from steering to balancing to pulling ollies and tricks.
Project 8's Nail the Trick mode, where you use the sticks to control your skater's legs, gets a slight tweak with SixAxis control:
Available now for your perusal at finer magazine outlets across the country, the December issue of PlayStation Magazine rolls out the full menu of PS3 launch titles. From the hardware itself to the hottest launch games, Kaiser Hwang, Randy Nelson and Justin Cheng unload every tiny piece of PS3 knowledge they've gathered into a massive launch
Need for Speed Carbon is streaking to Xbox 360 next month - and PS3 next year - and so we've hauled out a garageful of images that show off the next-gen speedster's gleaming visuals and super-sharp supercars in action. Cruise over the Images tab above to see them all.
With the game's "crew" add-on, where you can call in a member of your growing underground clique to disrupt rivals or help your racing, Carbon at least steps away from the pattern of previous games. And the new canyon racing is
PlayStation 3's online gaming service will not feature an Xbox Live-style rolling "gamerscore" for your profile, based on accomplishments you make in games.
In addition, developers will be able to include rewards like those offered by Xbox 360's achievements system, however this will be purely optional and "on a game-by-game basis," according to Sony America's Executive VP Jack

Need for Speed Carbon is streaking to Xbox 360 next month - and PS3 next year - and so we've hauled out a gridful of images that show off the next-gen speedster's gleaming visuals and super-sharp supercars in action.
With the game's 'crew' add-on, where you can call in a member of your growing underground clique to disrupt rivals or help your racing, Carbon at least steps away from the pattern of previous games. And the new canyon racing is also a neat addition,
Are you a small child or a furry? Perhaps you merely have a whimsical sense of humor. Or you might simply desperately want free crap. Whatever - you might be interested in a contest Nintendo is currently running with the help of smugmug, a poorly-named site we'd describe as a flickr ripoff, except that it has lots of quotes on its front page talking about how awesome it is.
Anyway... the contest centers around the plot of the not-so-spectacular Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, in which the
Selected PS3 games will offer the option to install, PC-style, on to the console's hard drive to allow faster in-game loading times, it was revealed at last Friday's Gamer's Day conference.
Slash-'em-up Genji: Days of the Blade allows a 4GB install that will drastically reduce the wait between scenes, MTV has reported - although that's not the entire contents of the game, as playing without the disc in the drive provides no

Proving that a picture can say a thousand physics and particle-effect buzzwords, new screens of Full Auto 2: Battlelines, the PS3-only sequel to the Xbox 360-only original, have crashed on to our images tab.
It's hard to fault Battlelines for ticking all the expected videogame boxes - cars, guns, explosions - and then scribbling over the boxes with doodles of cars with guns, exploding. If there are subtle ways to show off the power of PS3, you won't find them here; it's
Following earlier news of the PlayStation Network from Sony, here's footage from its most striking downloadable title, flOw.
Originally a student-developed freeware Flash game (you can play it here ), the creators moved in to Sony's Santa Monica studios to work on an upgraded PS3 version - boasting spacier sound, richer visuals and effects, and tilt-sensitive Sixaxis
Good news / bad news
Our moles burrowed deep inside the twisted infrastructure of Splinter Cell: Double Agent publisher Ubisoft have discovered that the PC version is a virtually identical copy of the game on Xbox 360. This is great news for lovers of tense, neck-snapping action, since we're hopelessly addicted to Sam Fisher's next-gen turn on Microsoft's white monolith. The bad news: the PC version is delayed until October 31. Trick or treat, Sam?
