The PS3's ability to track the position of an object in 3D space using the new Eye Toy offers up more potential for motion-sensing gaming than the Wii Remote, Sony told us yesterday.
Eye Toy card battle game, Eye of Judgement, boasts some pretty impressive optical recognition technology that not only identifies a card (from a selection of hundreds) and summons the right monster, but it can track the movement of that card - including its distance from the camera and tilt
The actual concept of an EA playground is one of the most wonderfully absurd things weve heard of in a while: a kind of compendium of EA games collected together in the style of a theme park.
How excited you get by this prospect depends entirely on your age, because this one is aimed squarely at sticky-fingered youths. But theres no doubting it has a certain pizzazz. The minigame that were most looking forward to is Tetherball - the game that everyone loves until the ball swings right into
With the full Opera browser slowly - and we mean slowly - downloading into the Wii's master-brain, there's no better time to indulge in a spot of YouTubing shenanigans. It's here gamers reveal acts of gaming prowess beyond our meager arm-flailing goofiness, and demonstrate how to milk every drop of fun from those Wii discs. Now get surfing.

Whizzing onto Wii in the summer, Emergency Mayhem is a revamped action game originally revealed by ill-fated developer Acclaim Cheltenham - and we've dialed up the first screens for this ker-razy save-'em-all title, now under the control of Supersonic, who you might remember as the creator of the rather excellent Mashed.
Emergency Mayhem's city-sprints, as you take charge of the fire, police and ambulance emergency services in a desperate dash to save anyone in need,
It's the end of another great year for gamers. Two new systems launched. Two handhelds waged bloody battle. And next gen gaming got a big kick in the pants - thanks to a year of lonely rule by the Xbox 360. PC gaming fought fire with nukes, waging its battle against the console-based onslaught. In short, it ruled.
How do we handle this? We're handing out our gleaming Platinum Chalice to those games and systems which gave us the business. No boring list of 37 different strategy games, divided

With its Japanese and US launch just days away, a selection of new Elebits shots - Konami's intriguing new hide 'n' seek game for Wii - has come out of hiding.
Elebits are curious little creatures that act as the game world's source of energy, so things go pear-shaped when they decide to go on strike. What makes it worse is that the cheeky 'Bits have hidden themselves as well.
The job of the gamer is to try to find the Elebits using the unique capabilities of the
What's hotter than watching a cute princess kiss a fat, middle-aged plumber? Well, anything really, but given the headline above, the answer should be obvious: watching a cute princess kiss another cute princess. It's sexy, it's vaguely taboo and it's pleasantly devoid of bristling mustaches and lingering sewage odors.
It's much more common to see girl-on-girl kisses in other media, but it happens in games more often than you'd think. To prove it to you, we've collected the very best ones and
GameCube classic Eternal Darkness almost certainly has a sequel on the way, according to Denis Dyack, director of developer Silicon Knights.
Dyack has revealed in his blog that the three-game approach the team took to the forthcoming Xbox 360 game Too Human was always a possibility for Eternal Darkness. Every time the team designs a game, he says, it is intended to tell a story within a larger universe and that other stories are still there to be told.
This means that Too Human's - and now
Konami's first game for the Wii is Elebits. The publisher has now released its first movie for the game, and while it doesn't contain any gameplay footage, it sets up the story and world for this unique-looking new title. The elebits are tiny, fat creatures that live in the world and provide energy for humans - to cook food with, in the example in the new movie. They scamper around, creating mischief... it's all a bit too cute, in fact. Find out for yourself by clicking the Movies tab above and
Konami has released the first shots from its debut Wii game - Elebits - and you can see the premiere pictorial treats by clicking the images tab at the top of this very page.
Set in a world where the sole source of power comes from the electrified Elebits, players are tasked with rounding up the cute, but highly-charged, little tinkers - a troublesome task given their reluctance to be captured and their enthusiasm for making
