The first details have emerged on the pre-release demo of Devil May Cry 4... though we don't have a clue when or where it's going to hit.
The ten minute demo is a mish-mash of portions from Devil May Cry 4's story; including cut-up sections from Fortuna city as well as a bit from that icy level we've seen a thousand screenshots of.
Excitingly a boss character called Berial is also said to feature. Oh Capcom, you're spoiling us!
Speculation did kick off on the net that the DMC4

Good news tin fans - Capcom sends word that a three-disc Devil May Cry 4 Collector's Edition will be in the shops in time for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 releases.
This $79.99 (£38) edition comes complete with a documentary-packed bonus DVD and the first volume of the Devil May Cry animated series (four episodes, apparently) which we're concerned might suck, but who knows. The bonus DVD includes a making of feature, soundtrack extracts, a digital art book,

According to the Entertainment Software Association's 2006 report, 38 percent of gamers are females. These numbers are down from 2005, when the fairer sex reportedly accounted for 43 percent of the pie.
It seems that gaming continues to be a mostly male affair, so what's the best way to penetrate this demographic? Judging by the sex-filled ads we've seen over the years, it looks like the best way to a young man's wallet has - and always will be - through his pants. Read on and

Konami has said that the Leipzig convention later this week will play host to Hideo Kojima unveiling his new, undisclosed in-game themes for Metal Gear Solid 4 on PS3 with a new trailer.
The event will also be a platform for the firm to showcase Winning Eleven Pro Evolution Soccer 2008, Castlevania The Dracula X Chronicles and Silent Hill Origins for PSP, and Dewy's Adventure on Wii.
Plans will also be revealed for the recently announced Silent Hill V (working title), although
Publisher D3 has contacted numerous games websites requesting that two hosted "gameplay montages" for PS3 and Xbox 360 action game Dark Sector be removed after receiving a ruling from independent ratings body ESRB.
A notification from D3 reads, "We recently received a ruling from the ESRB stating that the two officially released Dark Sector gameplay montages have been deemed to contain excessive or offensive content; and to this end are not to be available for download or viewing, regardless
An overwhelming majority of gamers are male, so it makes perfect sense for every marketing team in the world to target their software at young guys. And what do all men ages 18 to one zillion love? Girls, gore and big loud machines. If they could make a game about a firefighting bikini squad that hunts down zombies in a decked-out sex/fire truck, world peace would be declared. But until that day, we have to settle with regular old T & A.
Developers are well aware of this, so occasionally

We've got an exclusive custom gameplay video of criminal motor-'em-up Driver 76 on PSP to show you - but please note there's some very naughty language in the video, so if you're under 18, best click away now. You'll see highlights from the first two missions here, including a heavy collision with a fish truck (and the police) and some back alley-bothering coupe action.
From what we've played of the game, it's looking like a possible GTA rival with free-roaming gameplay and excellent driving
When a developer sits down to create a game that involves a central starring character it's probably the most important part of the whole game making process. The key is to design a character who is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also someone you care about and believe in. Get it wrong or misjudge what your audience wants and your game baby might never turn into the multi-million dollar franchise you'd hoped
