Sony has announced what games will be available on the PS3's PlayStation Store on the system's November 11 Japan launch, and it's a little better than we expected... and a little worse. What do we mean? Well, the good stuff is downloadable, original games, including Blast Factor (pictured above), flOw and Lemmings, which we expect in the US. There are also two puzzle games: Kazuo (which looks like Sudoku to our untrained eye) and the imaginatively titled Puzzle, which
We don't usually report on this kind of thing - it's boring - but today Microsoft has announced that Gears of War has gone gold. Finished. Done development. Ready to go. And in celebration of its completion, Next Generation has put up an interview with the game's Lead Designer Cliff Bleszinski. His good word? "I dont know if its ever possible to be fully satisfied but my gut tells me, 'yes'. I sit down and I play the game and I have a blast with it, whether it be single player, versus
This new batch of shots from DEF JAM: ICON, the PS3 episode in the hip-hop flavored brawler series, shows off a brand new location for the beat-driven fight scenes: a floodlit rooftop complete with swooping helicopter and illuminated city skyline.

This amazing gameplay footage from PC super-shooter Crysis shouldn't show you anything new - unless you've been living in a box under the sea for the past two years - but it'll still blow your mind from here to next Tuesday with some truly gobsmacking jungle-based blasting and a teasing glimpse of the brittle ice-world at the centre of Crysis' pacific island locale.

With you fighting both a trigger-happy Korean army and a horde of
Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, a sequel to the hit military squad shooter that was released earlier this year, has been revealed. The sequel, intended to follow up GRAW's impressive success, will be launched early next year - and could potentially grace PS3.
The sequel was announced in a statement released by publisher and developer Ubisoft today, which makes no mention of specific platforms planned for GRAW 2. But given the near-future warfest's quality gameplay and multiplayer appeal,
The latest trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog's Xbox 360 and PS3 outing has arrived, giving us a few tantalizing glimpses of new gameplay elements. Click here [Xbox 360, PS3], or hit the Movies tab above to take a look.

Burnout 5 will be "like nothing you've ever seen before and better than any car crash in the movies," according to developer Criterion's creative director, Alex Ward, who says that the open-world racing game will have collisions so dramatic they will "rip the car in two."
Ward explains that "it's all about how many bones are in the car. In the last games we made, we were able to have 12 or 15 pieces of metal come out of the car" in Burnout's crash sequences. "This time we're looking at 90 to
