You probably saw the first screens of developer Criterion's PS2 and PSP title Burnout Dominator when we posted them back in December, but publisher EA has just updated us with a new set of images and a trailer showing off the game in all its crash-infused glory.
New info reveals that "Burnouts" will make a return from Burnout 2 (where you fill up the boost meter and then drain it in one go) while Signature Shortcuts require you to perform a signature takedown at the entrance to a shortcut to

Burnout Dominator has been announced by publisher EA for release next year, with the new addition to the Burnout series staying current-gen on PS2 and PSP.
Dominator will have all the high speed collisions that have become the series' signature but much of the action will be served up in mini skill-based challenges such as drift or near-miss contests. The PSP version will have ad hoc multiplayer options as well as downloadable
Although your adult diapers are heavy and there's hair growing out of your ears, you lovable, hopelessly dated PS2 and PSP owners will be able to suffer new heart attacks when Burnout Dominator speeds onto your quaint pair of rusting antique consoles. Pull your pants up to your forehead, stomp on the pedal and ram every whippersnapper riding in a wheeled thing within your
It's not like PSP's widescreen hasn't got enough room for a bit of fluffy fun among the shooters and racing games - and so, if we didn't lose you at "fluffy," click the Movies tab above to see a bite-sized demonstration of Bliss Island.
Created by PomPom, the developer responsible for PC and Xbox Live Arcade's frantic shooter Mutant Storm, it's quite a change of atmosphere - asking you to use momentum-based physics to roll, bop and bounce various spherical creatures through a series of

Codemasters has announced that it will be bringing quirky action-puzzler Bliss Island to PC later this month as a try-before-you-buy downloadable game and will follow it up with a PSP version later in the year.
Developed by PomPom - the people behind the excellent PC and Xbox Live Arcade shooter Mutant Storm - Bliss Island focuses on fluffy main character Hoshi the Zwooph and his unique ability to 'expel precision puffs of air at high velocity from his
In yet another case of mining the past for modern-day hits, Atari today announced that it's resurrecting BattleZone for the PSP. The new title is a remake of the 1980 tank game, which wowed arcade rats with then-revolutionary 3D wireframe graphics and a look-into-goggles-to-see-the-screen

Japanese developer Hudson Entertainment will be including a flight game for Revolution in its line-up for this year's E3.
The game is currently being referred to as 'Flight Game' and will allow players to control planes using the 'gesture function' of the Revolution controller, then take planes through stunt sequences and bombing runs.
Also in its line-up for E3 is another Bomberman game called Act Zero, which will be released for Xbox 360, and an update of the Dungeon
After popping the bubble of secrecy surrounding dragon duo Bub and Bob's move to 3D last week, we now have the first screens to reveal just how much Bubble Bobble Evolution has changed.
While retaining the same style and core gameplay of the classic arcade game via story mode, the developer has also promised that the new puzzles and enhanced bubbles will similarly develop the design to appeal to more than just retro gamers. Screens speak louder than works, so take a
Criterion and EA could so easily have just ported over a version of Burnout Revenge. You'd expect them too. But then they clearly understand people aren't going to buy a game for their PSP that they already have on PS2. Identical games for console and handheld just don't make sense.
That said, Criterion hasn't exactly constructed an entirely new game either.
Burnout Legends, as the name sort of suggests, is a combination of the best bits of the old games. Like Ridge Racer, Burnout Legends
