Announced last April to the delight of arcade racing fans 'round the world, Sega Rally Revo looks to deliver next-gen nastiness to a console (or PC!) near you sometime this year. Today Sega released some screens from this much-anticipated title, so get your first look at what's in store for you and your rally partner by hitting the Images tab above.
When we got a look at Revo at E3, we were awed by the way the tires literally tore through the track as we raced by. Each wheel threw up mud and
PlayStation 3 is failing to sell out in many high profile stores across the nation, including branches of Best Buy, Wal-Mart and Electronics Boutique - and we've got the figures to show you exactly where you could walk in and pick up a console today.
In fact, if we'd had the cash, we could have bought at least 50 PS3s. Of the 33 shops we spoke to yesterday, from New York to San Francisco, 18 branches had stock available, from a couple of consoles right up to stacks of nearly 30. Our results
MotorStorm 's multiplayer features will include at least 12-player muddy race-offs and full voice chat support when it launches on February 27th. Two-player split-screen play will not be offered, although developer Evolution may rectify this with a downloadable bolt-on sometime in the future.
Evolution is hoping to boost the multiplayer roster to allow for 16-player racefests, but 12 is currently the number the developer is willing to commit to according to a recent interview with Edge Online.
Let the haters and the old ladies complain about how those newfangled video computer games teach us to be killers; we've always taken the view that violent games are a pressure valve for blowing off steam in a harmless way. Don't believe it? Play something fierce and bloody the next time you're in a really bad mood, and then try telling us you didn't feel better afterward.
But why stop there? If games can keep you from climbing a clock tower and expressing your inner pain in the form of
The expletive-heavy Saints Row, Xbox 360's none-more-gangster GTA-alike action game, will soon be invading new territory with a launch on PlayStation 3, according to a listing by retail chain EB Games.
The listing appeared in the PS3 section of EB Games' website last Friday, prompting immediate speculation that the game is indeed headed to Sony's console. The page has now been removed. "Mistakes" like these have become common - perhaps EB is gauging customer response before filing an order -
Blacksite: Area 51 is the confirmed codename for developer Midway's second extraterrestrial actioner, due to crash-land on PS3 and Xbox 360 in the summer, complete with blinding visuals, superb squad controls and super-smart AI.
Taking its name from a covert military term, this fresh foray into the successful Area 51 universe is aiming for a political-flavoured twist to its alien-based plotline. A "blacksite" is somewhere the military operates while denying the place actually exists, and also

It has been a particularly brutal and cold blooded week on the verbal battlefield between the warring Microsoft and Sony corporate armies. Both have been busy "giving it all that," back and forth, non-stop, on and on. And while the word guns may have fallen silent for now, our ears are still ringing from the undignified jibes and digs that were fired about.
In case you missed any of the mouthing off - and we know you love it when top brass bitch like a bunch of playground, er, bitches - here's
Following an apparent posting on Sony's official PS3 site earlier today, the interwebs erupted with news that jaw-dropping slash 'em-up Heavenly Sword - easily one of the most impressive games shown at the E3 expo in May 2006 - would hit stores on March 6.
When we checked, though, the date had disappeared from the game's official page, replaced only with a vague "2007." According to Sony spokesman Alex Armour, the March release date is wrong and was posted by mistake. Plans for the game's
Here's a confirmed sighting of The Outsider, the mysterious Xbox 360 and PS3 action game from gaming legend David Braben, the creative mega-brain behind sci-fi classic Elite.
