We've seen Medal of Honor: Airborne on PlayStation 3, and it looks brilliant. That's the short version of a day spent behind EA's ring of steel looking at experimental footage of their stunning PS3 engine in action. Just take a look at these screens if you want proof.
The next-gen version of Medal of Honor uses the full weight of PS3 to create not only the battlefield, but the skies above it too. And although the shots of the demo we've brought back look amazing, believe us when we say they
Publisher Take 2 Interactive has indicated that the almighty GTA series isn't going to appear on next-gen consoles until 2007, although we can expect an all-new PSP outing for the series by the end of this year.
Squeezed between several suit-and-tie paragraphs of a financial report, a look ahead to Rockstar's upcoming games for 2006 mentioned only one next-gen title - the recently announced paddle-whacker, Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis.
However, it did reveal that it will be releasing
The land of gaudy costumes and debauchery, Las Vegas has welcomed any number of sleazy activities into the cold glow of its neon bosom. Home to the rowdy crowd that always delivers the best Cops episodes, it's hard to imagine a crisis crazy enough to warrant the attention of the US Military. But, when not even CSI: Las Vegas can handle the heat, you need to call in the surgically stealthy elites known as Team Rainbow for some squad-based, tactical counter-terrorism gunplay.
Las Vegas, held
Ubisoft has confirmed today that Brothers in Arms 3 will be released for Xbox 360 later this year, potentially launching before the PS3 version that was announced last year.
The next-gen sequel sees Baker and company returning to the frontline during WWII, with destructible environments - bullets smashing through wood, doors blowing off their hinges - and new leaning and blind firing abilities for your team that help them keep behind cover while still laying down suppressing fire.

Ubisoft has announced Rainbow Six: Vegas, a new episode in the terrorist-bashing series set for release on next-gen consoles later in the year.
Beyond the title, Ubisoft has confirmed no further details, although it'd be safe to assume that the title indicates a focus on counter-terrorist action in the heart of Las Vegas - which is a big step away from the globe-spanning missions in previous games.
Ominously, Rainbow Six: Lockdown - the last game in the series - was shoddy and wholly
A delay to the launch of PlayStation 3 looks even more likely today, after Sony decided not to unveil the next-gen machine at this week's Destination PlayStation in Miami. Destination PlayStation is an annual, invite-only event in which third-party software publishers try to sell retail buyers on their upcoming products. In other words, it would have made sense for PS3 to be there.
Sony has continually stated that PS3 would be released - in Japan, at least - this spring, despite problems
Jackie Estacado, mafia hitman playboy, has found a new home at 2K Games after nearly meeting his end with now-defunct publisher Majesco. The Darkness, based on the popular Top Cow comic, thrusts you into Jackie's suave trench-coat and gothic nightmare city. You've been possessed by a mysterious, malevolent force that encases your body with inky, rippling blackness. In addition to beign totally goth-fashionable, this development gives you the power to command the zombified, rat-like demons that
Two of Unreal Tournament 2007's bigwigs took the stage at Midway's media event in late February to give the press a small but potent peek at the upcoming PS3 and PC shooter. Throughout the presentation, Mark Rein, vice president of developer Epic Games, stressed that they were showing “a lot of unfinished stuff, a lot of unpolished stuff." Honestly, you'd never know it.
While Rein did announce that the demo was running on a quad SLI rig (that's four blazing-fast NVidia GeForce 7800 GTX
We've been hit by a salvo of eye-burstingly good images from Stranglehold, Midway's John Woo-inspired bullet festival for PS3, PC and Xbox 360.
The game stars a digital version of Hong Kong cinema hero Chow Yun-Fat, and features the sort of high-action gun battles that he's famous for - complete with twin pistols, restaurant shootouts and dodging acrobatics.
As a bonus, we've also got some footage of the game in full flow - just click the movie tab on the right to treat your eyes to the
Take a look at these fantastic screens for Unreal Tournament 2007, due to smash home on PC later this year - and sure to grace next-gen consoles sometime in the future, too.
Apart from the stupendous amount of detail, the most exciting feature of the latest Unreal Tourney has to be the chonking great vehicles you can now roar around the levels in, promoting the sort of gunner and driver teamplay that makes Battlefield 2 so much fun.
