We've gathered up a bundle of fresh shots of Sonic Rivals, the new blue hedgehog title from Sega coming out for PSP this winter.
The game pits our prickly hero against other characters from the Sonic universe in highly competitive racing. The challenge is to race to the end of the tracks while avoiding the myriad of obstacles set up by the villainous Dr Eggman. Racers are allowed to shove and vault over each other in an attempt to reach the finish line first.
If you're one of the many who's been waiting on pins and needles for Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover to arrive on PSP, you can get another taste of the hip-hop fighting explodaganza with our four new videos.
Like the last batch of movies, the new videos cut between real-life hip-hop royalty and their ass-kicking in-game counterparts, all while showing off a lot of nice-looking gameplay with Carmen Electra, Sean Paul and Snoop Dogg. There's also a bonus fourth video, showing off the game's

Both Sony and Electronic Arts passed on the opportunity to turn Brit horror flick 28 Days Later into a game, according to the film's producer Andrew Macdonald.
Macdonald was speaking at the Develop Conference in Brighton this week about the crossover between games and films when he revealed there was little interest in the 28 Days Later licence. Many independent developers were tempted by the idea but would need funding to produce it.
28 Days Later was directed by Danny
Sonic and Shadow, two of the gaming industry's most recognizable hedgehogs, are racing to the PSP in November in the 2D/3D racing-action game Sonic Rivals. But while the apparent revival of old-school Sonic gameplay is still a few months off, we've just gotten our hands on a new selection of screenshots showcasing one of the game's boss fights.
The 11 new screens (which you can view by clicking the Images tab above) apparently show the two hedgehogs briefly setting aside their differences to
PSP puzzler Lumines II could be getting a PlayStation 3 edition, according to the game's creator, Tetsuya Mizuguchi.
Speaking at this week's Develop Conference in Brighton, England, Mizuguchi said that the development team "will be making announcements about the artists and music that we will be working with... I am also very interested in the network situation with PS3".
While this can't be called an official confirmation, it does seem as though Mizuguchi has some definite plans for Lumines
Ubisoft delivered another little video for Rayman Raving Rabbids, and we've begun to detect a theme here. The third in their series of "Bunnies can't..." shorts, this episode depicts a Raving Rabbid bunny attempting to play with fireworks with decidedly mixed results. While these clips are entertaining, we'd still like to see more actual gameplay in them.
Still, we eagerly await future installments in this series, because we're hoping that they'll include: Bunnies can't perform colonoscopies,
Like any good puzzler, the mechanics behind Gunpey are best described in one sentence: Reconnect rising, fragmented lines before they reach the top of the screen. Well, there it is, so hop to it.
Thankfully, the actual act of weaving these broken lines will be visually arresting and an all night rave for the ears, as Gunpey comes to us from Q Entertainment. Not ringing any bells? Q brought us the pulsing techno beats of Lumines and the multicolored, alien hijinks of Meteos, two classic puzzle
Bubba Sparxxx wants to know if you're ready to get it on. Or at least that's what the rapper asks in his new Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover video, one of three released by publisher EA ahead of the rapper-filled fighting game's July 18 release.
The new, high-quality vids show off plenty of slick-looking gameplay footage, mixed in with close-ups of Sparxxx and Busta Rhymes getting hammy in the recording studio. One of them also offers up an in-depth look at the character-creation mode,
With Miami Vice set to be the action blockbuster of the summer, Vivendi is releasing a PSP game based on the Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell film later this month. And to prepare you for entry into the city's seedier side, the Movies tab above has an explosive trailer for your viewing pleasure.
The game is a third-person shooter in which you play as undercover narcotics officers Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs, who must infiltrate the South Beach drug scene in order to take down a South American
Hot on the heels of GamesRadar's first significant write-up on World Tour Golf last week, European and US publisher Oxygen today announced that the name of the game is being changed to ProStroke Golf: World Tour 2007.
The publisher stated in a press release yesterday that "a generic title did not do justice" to "a golf simulation for a worldwide audience." The new title refers to the game's realistic ProStroke system, which enables players to control their shots by adjusting their stance, club
