Another year, another Pro Evo. PES 2008 was released last Friday for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and, while it's also available on good old PS2, there's a handful of neat additions to the much loved footie series that you'll only see if you invest in the next-gen editions.
We've rounded up the four most obvious improvements for your viewing pleasure. And, while alone they won't exactly reinvent the game, together these new features open up brand new options for play, building on

As you read this, PES 2008 will finally be flying out the shops on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, once again going into battle against its old enemy, FIFA. But forget the gameplay, feel and visuals for a moment. What we want to know is which of these two footballing powerhouses has the best player likenesses.
The answer? Well, why not peruse our visual evidence over the next few tabs and decide for yourself. Does Pro Evo's ever-so-slightly cartoon look make for a better resemblance?

Sierra dropped us a friendly e-mail this afternoon inviting us to the TimeShift launch party - not out of the ordinary – we get boozed up at industry parties all the time. What was out of the ordinary was a note attached to the invitation stating that Sierra will be raffling off an exclusive look at Prototypes co-op mode.

Weve all become rather enamored by Portal, which has been untangling the folds of our frontal lobes since its release last week with Valves Orange Box. While it may appear simple at first glance, Portal is jammed full of subtleties, Easter eggs, and easily repeatable tag lines that have been rapidly absorbed by the Internets collective cultural consciousness.
If youve been on the wrong side of the space-time continuum for the last week and have no clue what were talking about,

A third console installment in Rare's Perfect Dark franchise will be revealed sometime next year, claims a report on games site GameGuru.
The site, claiming sources within Rare, says the British developer is hard at work on a sequel to the original N64 shooter (rather than another PDZ-style prequel) and it'll have something to show of the game by the end of next year.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 on PS3 and Xbox 360 is "far away" from the game that Shingo 'Seabass' Takatsuka wanted to see on next-generation hardware, the legendary Konami dev has revealed to GamesRadar during a recent interview.
"We knew we could have done better," Seabass told us, but the hassle of a multiplatform launch and pressured development deadlines hamstrung Konami's ambition. However, Seabass is confident that the difference between this year's and next year's edition of
