Unreal Tournament 2007 developer Epic Games wants to find out more about Sony's online system for PS3, and already has some ideas for Unreal's online ranking system on the next-gen system, according to producer Jeff Morris.
"We're really interested in learning more about Sony's network infrastructure for PS3 because on PlayStation 2 it was like the Wild West - you just plugged in and you were on the internet." Morris, who we spoke to at the Leipzig Game Convention, was

The developer of Brothers in Arms Hell's Highway has revealed that it is currently experimenting with ways to utilise the tilt function of the PS3 controller.
After demoing the impressive third game in the Brothers in Arms series, we asked Gearbox Software's president, Randy Pitchford, whether the game would make use of PS3's tilting powers.
"There's a recon team that has a jeep and we're thinking about steering the jeep or playing with that... There's a couple of other
As easily one of the most impressive games at this year's E3, we've been waiting patiently for more from Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway so that we have an excuse to bang on about how engrossing, atmospheric and totally out of its class the game is.

It'll be crucial to see just how much freedom the game allows you to roam around but, if the
The aim is still the same - steal/blow up your opponent's important thing before they do the same to you - but Unreal Tournament 2007's scale just keeps getting bigger. Hit the Movies tab now to watch the latest trailer for the team-play blast fest, and gawp at the sheer number of excitingly explosive vehicles you can strap yourself into. Our favorite has to be the War of the Worlds-esque creepy tripods.
One interesting note: Unreal Tournament 2007 still hasn't been confirmed for Xbox 360.
And you thought Resident Evil 4 was a series reinvention - next year's Alone in the Dark game, Near Death Investigation, is set in a massive recreation of Central Park, allows you to drive vehicles, has an innovative analog-stick control system for using items and some of its biggest shocks are from fiery infernos.
We have five more cryptic shots of the PC, PS3 and 360 game showing off some of its varied elements. Head on up to the images tab above if you dare (we'll warn you, there's a
One of E3's surprise announcements was that Coded Arms - the good-idea, not-so-good execution PSP shooter set in a virtual world - would be continuing on PS3 in 2007. Sony's super-machine will seemingly let Coded Arms Assault play to its hacker-in-a-virtual-world concept's strengths, with whole Tokyo city blocks shimmering into existence among hails of sparkling pixels and gunfire.
We've just received the latest round of shots (check the Images tab for the full set), showing that the game is
Who needs an excuse to gawp when you've got brand new Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots screens? Solid Snake's personal war is quite literally you versus the world, with the planet's conflicts now waged by private military companies that make money from massacres.

While there might be a pretty much nonexistent PS3 presence at this year's Leipzig Game Convention, the cozy Sony sanctum does have a few game trailers running on HDTVs for attendees' viewing pleasure. The most interesting - and previously unseen - snippet is some Warhawk footage that shows a section of on-foot

Industrious first-person shooter developer Free Radical is apparently going all-out on next-gen development - as well as its E3-announced next-gen shooter, Haze, it's just been revealed that it's also working on a game for Star Wars bods, LucasArts.
No details have yet been released, although we noticed that, compared to LucasArts' announcement earlier in the month that it would be publishing a "new intellectual property" from MechAssault developer Day 1 Studios, the

Like Nintendo, Sony has decided not to grace the currently running Leipzig Game Convention with any playable games for its new console, PS3, instead opting to show only a selection of - mostly - previously aired trailers. However, it does have a machine for show goers to gaze at longingly and we've thoughtfully taken a picture of it so you can eye it up for yourself from the comfort of your own chair.
It stands alone on a pedestal, accompanied by a solitary PS3
