Six years in development don't end here...
Microsoft has revealed plans to pump up Kameo: Elements of Power for the 360 with brand new modes and difficulty levels. This leaves us wondering if, nine months on, anyone is so unfortunate as to still be trying to squeeze fun from that particular rock. If you've got nothing better to do, or are still desperately attempting to justify the $60 it originally cost, head over to the game's official site to find out the details on this Resusci Annie

A deluge of next-gen shots from the second level of Call Of Duty 3 shows US infantry attempting to storm a fortified area that has a distinct rural flavour - in sharp contrast to the urban setting of the previously-revealed images from the game's opening scenes.
The action, set in an area called The Island, is then made even more dramatic by being set at twilight in the middle of a ferocious rain storm.
As there are few buildings or walls to use as cover, the soldiers

Even though Sonic reaches the ripe old age of 15 this year, these latest shots from his next-gen game, Sonic the Hedgehog, show no signs that he's going to be slowing down any time soon.
The game - which is being developed by Sega's Sonic Team - is designed to capture the blistering speed of the hedgehog's 2D roots and combine it with gorgeous visuals, courtesy of Xbox 360 and PS3 power.
Sonic is called back into action as the pesky Dr Robotnik kidnaps a princess and
Master Chief brings a wicked Ryu
Obviously, we're kidding - he probably couldn't work the joystick through that armor. However, we can point you toward the next best thing. Our man inside tells us that a huge chunk of the Halo 3 dev team just registered to participate in the world finals of the EVO2006 gaming tournament, taking place in Las Vegas this August 18-20. We're guessing they're most interested in Dead or Alive 4 than Street Fighter, but there are six different ass-kicking simulators
As part of the ongoing deluge on new Sonic material, Sega's let loose no fewer than 20 new screens of the PS3 and 360 Sonic the Hedgehog. We knew Sonic wouldn't be alone, as telekinetic Silver the Hedgehog has already been revealed as a major player, but now we can see Shadow breaking loose - this time completely gun-free.
You'll see plenty of Sonic shredding through dense vegetation and Shadow looking relatively menacing, but the new screens also reveal a volcano area littered with tiny

Activision has confirmed some of its releases for next year and Call of Duty will return, as will Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero.
The US publisher had to make a statement to city money men regarding forthcoming releases and the line-up was comprised of a mix of established games and big licensed products.
World Series of Poker has also been confirmed and will be accompanied by such film spin-offs as Spider-Man 3, Transformers and Shrek 3. There will also be another Marvel
Wanna be a Hobbit?
Remember Lord of the Rings Online? Given that there are now more MMOs than there are Korean citizens, we'd forgive you for forgetting, but never fear - it's still on the way. Developer Turbine (Dungeons & Dragons Online) has 125,000 willing Middle-earth addicts lined up already to be beta testers, but they say there's room for more still. If you want to apply, head to the official website and let them know. Be warned of two things: You're going to need a beefy PC to run the
So this puts us up to about 50 or 60 thousand videos pertaining to Ubisoft's upcoming Rayman Raving Rabbids game, but we still get a little chuckle every time the annoying little critters wail with their blood-red eyes. Our two new videos provide evidence that these albino monstrosities can neither milk cows nor close doors behind them - we're not clear on what these limitations have to do with, oh, the game, but they're fun enough distractions.

Ever since our tantalizing encounter with Stranglehold at E3, we've been hounding publisher Midway for more details on John Woo's shooter. Midway finally responded with three new screens that you can view by clicking that Images tab above. The best estimate for when we can expect this game to hit stores is still Spring 2007, so it'll be awhile before we actually get to touch it,

Phil Harrison, Executive Vice President of SCEE, has been speaking about PS3 and how things have been progressing as we approach the November launch and he believes that "it's all going well".
Talking to the Guardian he stated that Sony is "in full swing, from a developer point of view, and over 10,000 development kits have been shipped. Developers now have final hardware in their hands, though there will be some upgrades to the operating system - there's nothing unusual
