Sony has announced that a total of 10,000 PlayStation 3 development systems have been sent out to 208 companies from 11 different countries.
This beats the amount of dev kits given out for the PSone and PS2, and includes systems given out to all the heavyweights of the gaming world, such as EA, Konami, Sega, Rockstar and Activision.
Sony is keen to make this clear, as a response to continued speculation that third-party support for the next-gen machine will be
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will be released for PlayStation 3 this November and PSP in March 2007, according to game-retail giant EBGames, which recently posted these launch details for the two, as yet unconfirmed, versions of the massively single-player RPG.
A release schedule from developer Bethesda, leaked in April, supposedly revealed plans to release PS3 and PSP versions of Oblivion this November. However, with EBGames posting dates - most likely as placeholders for now - it would
We're all desperate to see more of PS3's gaming credentials in action, especially after a pretty disappointing showing at May's E3 expo, so this new gameplay footage of none-more-muddy dirt racer MotorStorm is more than welcome.
It's even exciting enough to make us forget - nearly - our rather dull experience the last time we saw the game. Click the Movies tab now to watch it.
You can see from the footage how your race opponents will line up - in a motorized menagerie of dirt bikes, buggies,

We've got our hands on a new trailer that demonstrates the type of customisation gamers will be able to do with the Sony's PlayStation 3 version of SingStar.
While there's little Sony can do to improve the gameplay (singplay?), the experience will be given a next-gen edge by allowing gamers to create their ultimate SingStar track list with downloads from PS3's online service.
Sony will make over 300 songs from previous SingStar games available in the online SingStore,
Footage of a LucasArts demo of a next-gen Star Wars game snuck out onto popular video storehouse YouTube today, featuring action of a Jedi using the Force to toy around with a hapless group of Stormtroopers. Bodies fly, lightning bolts fry, heads are slammed into concrete, chunks of the enviornment are torn away and ultimately a bunch of debris and an unlucky 'trooper are thrown into the path of an oncoming TIE Fighter, which explodes on impact.
The action doesn't come from a specific game; it
Publisher Sega has unleashed five more videos of its upcoming PS3 exclusive, Virtua Fighter 5, and we've put them up for your continued viewing pleasure. Aside from showing off the beautiful backgrounds and detailed characters of the arcade version, the new clips feature five full, uncut fights, this time starring spiky-haired Jeet Kune Do fighter Jacky, kung-fu movie star Pai, ripped Vale Tudo expert Vanessa and mantis-style kung-fu artist Lion.

A fresh handful of screens have been released for Resistance: Fall of Man, giving us yet another look at the alternate-history shooter's Manchester and Northern Command levels, its hapless British troops and its vicious, toothy Chimera aliens.
While we at GamesRadar are excited as hell for this game, we can't help but wonder why Sony's still only showing glimpses of the same two levels we saw at the E3 expo. Hopefully, there'll be more coming down the pike soon, but in the meantime, hit the

PlayStation 3 will "last 10 years" thanks to its choice of Blu-ray as its optical disc format, according to the graphics chip company that has worked on both PS3 and the original Xbox.
PS3 will last longer than its competitors as the Blu-ray Disc is the future of high-density storage, Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of graphics chip company nVidia, told US site Mercury News. The tech boss said it would be an "impossible scenario" for any company to "announce a games console for the

Last week we brought you a trailer showing just how Tony Hawk's Project 8 developer Neversoft motion captured a pro skater in action, now we can show the incredible results of the process. We've also nabbed the latest next-gen screens, revealing a little more of what we can expect of the skate game.
This new movie demonstrates the amount of detail that goes in to every trick, with each movement of the skater's feet having an affect on the board.
Neversoft's aiming to make
Get your first glimpse of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with this behind the scenes promo of the Ubisoft game, currently in development to accompany the release of the new Turtles films, due to be released next March.
The promo shows how developer Ubisoft Montreal has approached the game by identifying three aspects of being a ninja turtle - combat, agility and teamwork - then making them integral to the gameplay.
While combat and agility translate into fighting and platforming, it's the
