Then we realize that the game has 20 playable characters and more than 140 cameos - could they all be getting their own special videos? Does the internet have enough space left to contain all this
SKATE is the name for Electronic Arts' brand new skateboard game project and will be released in 2007 for Xbox 360 and PS3. EA made the official announcement in the last few hours that the publisher was readying a rival for the long-running Tony Hawk series.
EA reckons SKATE is a move away from "the typical button-mashing gameplay of past skating games," surely a thinly veiled criticism of the Tony Hawk skateboarding series and their beat-'em-up style button-tapping combos. SKATE will,

A new run of the Game On exhibition - the interactive (that is, playable) history of videogames that first ran back in 2002 at London's Barbican - will be opening on 21 October at London's Science Museum.
Now graciously sponsored by Nintendo, despite featuring many of its competitors, this new-and-improved Game On will allow you to get an eyeful of the whopping great machine (no, not a PS3) that ran the world's very first videogame, before carrying onwards through

Electronic Arts is working on a skateboarding action game, codenamed simply 'Skate', designed to rival Activision's Tony Hawk's series and set for release on next-gen consoles sometime next year.

Long-rumored to be making an appearance on PS3, it's recently been suggested that PC and Xbox 360 RPG daddy The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will be released in time for the machine's American (and Japanese, but not European - yes, the Brits're still sore) launch on November 17.
Set to be revealed in an upcoming issue of the US Official PlayStation Magazine (not to be confused with our sister-mag, PSM ), a recent podcast may have let the proverbial cat out of the enchanted Daedra-hide bag - but

Yeah, we appreciate your attention. We know that the big story today is the Nintendo Wii, so we're not going to bog you down with lots of fluff. Hell, there simply isn't much else to talk about, truth told. Microsoft sent out an embarrassing press release that we deleted without really reading - that may as well have been titled "Remember us!

On that note, here are our big
Call of Duty 3, Tony Hawk's Project 8 and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance will all be available for the US launch of the PlayStation 3 this November, according to Activision bigwig Robert Kotick. He then went on to unveil publisher Activision's plans for the next 12 months, with Spider-Man 3, Shrek the Third and Transformers set for a June release, followed by a new Call of Duty, the 2007 Tony Hawk game, The Bee Movie, a Marvel title and a new Guitar Hero game later in the
Though it was revealed back in August, we've had to wait until now for the first screens of Battlefield: Bad Company to appear.
