Has tired old IGN done it again and simply copied the ideas machine that is GamesRadar?

- From the 5th to the 9th was GameCube, from the 12th to the 16th this week is Xbox.

MS Corporate VP Shane Kim has hinted at a September release date for Halo 3, telling 1UP that Bungie would like to get its shooter out the door before Rockstar's massive fourth GTA arrives in October.
"If they can get out before GTA4, they probably feel like that's better, sort of like Xbox 360 coming out before PlayStation 3," he said, adding that that decision is apparently not up to Microsoft: "We don't tell Bungie when they have to ship Halo
Activision unveiled the upcoming Transformer movie tie-in earlier this week in London to what we believe was a very average reception. We're huge fans of the brand and think the movie is shaping up to deliver the goods. We have a few reservations about the game though.
We said, "Although the game's still in development, it lacked the detail and polish we've come to expect from 360 games. The environment looked bland and there was a distinct lack of people and traffic."
Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. announced today that PS3s will soon be able to connect to Stanford University's Folding@home program, which will use the combined power of thousands of consoles to run simulations of protein folding. These simulations may help researchers understand the causes of some diseases, like Alzheimer's, cystic fibrosis, Parkinson's, and numerous cancers. That's right: the PS3 may one day help cure cancer.
The process of folding proteins is so complex that even a
Fresh out of the sewer, mutated for your viewing enjoyment, comes a brand stinkin' new video that showcases your favorite subterranean superheroes in action. There's a wide variety of action to be seen here, from single turtle throwdowns to frantic character-swapping melees, and it happens all over the place, from the deep in the sewers to the top of giant parade floats. Mayhem galore.
From the looks of things, these Turtles have been studying tapes of the Prince and Kratos in action - two
Distressed forum goers have experienced frequent connection failure between their Sixaxis controllers and the PS3.
The fault, which seems to occur at random, results in a complete loss of control for around three seconds.
The numerous posters in two separate NEOGAF forum discussions (here and here) have noted that the error is unrelated to the battery charge level, with low battery power being the initial suspected cause.
Some suspect environmental interference could be causing the signal
If you're a regular reader of GamesRadar, you've probably already seen our gameplay video of LittleBigPlanet, featuring four of the game's yarn-doll creatures making their way through an example of the kind of levels players will be able to create. But that video isn't what made jaws hit the floor at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco that week. No, what amazed GDC crowds was this feel-good cutefest's creative side, with its rubber-stamp interface for placing 3D objects and its
Warhawk developer Incognito might say its PS3 game will release only as a download via PlayStation Store, but Sony says otherwise.
"Officially, Warhawk will be released as a Blu-ray-based product," an SCEA spokesperson told IGN. "It will see release in late summer," they continued, adding that "It's a disk-based product" when asked if the game will also release as a download on PlayStation
At a preview event in Europe yesterday, Transformers: The Game was presented to an underwhelmed crowed of journos, as the giant-robot action failed to meet high expectations set by the movie. Giant robots, guns, rockets, explosions - it's perfect videogame fodder.
We were shown a city-based level that demonstrated destructible scenery by having robots smashing through buildings. We were also shown the combat system as two robots squared up to each other.
But the physics engine lacked impact
id Software has significant plans for its Enemy Territory series judging by the words spilling out its mouth during a recent interview on the forthcoming Quake Wars.
Speaking to PC Zone magazine about what's next for ET, id's Kevin Cloud explained the developer is "keen to start on a new world in a new ET, building on what we've done."
Quite where a new Enemy Territory would be set is open to speculation - Cloud didn't go into specifics - but there's already a number of ideas bouncing around
