We got a hot video from Ubisoft this morning featuring Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas Producer Alexandre Parizeau dishing out the dirt on the gameplay behind the upcoming Clancy combat-simulator. Granted, most of the in-game footage shown is stuff that we've already seen from their E3 trailer, but it's definitely nice to have a little explanation from one of the bigwigs at
If there's a 360 game from Japan that's creating plenty of buzz right now, it's Dead Rising. Wait... we meant a game that actually hadn't yet been announced for US release. So scratch that: we're talking about Bullet Witch.
The game puts you in the magical shoes of a feisty witch named Alicia. By 2013, the world has become overrun with demons - and the human race is on the brink of being wiped out. The best solution, apparently, is to send a sexy woman with a gun shaped like a broom into the

The new Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive will be the cheapest HD-DVD player on the market when it's released later this year, according to Microsoft's director of global marketing, Albert Penello.
A recent blog entry by Microsoft employee Larry Hryb (aka Major Nelson), interviewed Penello who, when quizzed about the price of the add-on, said: "We're still thinking about it. Here's what I can tell you for sure, it's going to be the cheapest HD-DVD player you can buy, without a

PlayStation worldwide studios captain Phil Harrison told British newspaper The Guardian that he would be "amazed if the PlayStation 4 has a physical disc drive." Seems odd talk from a man still struggling to convince the world it needs the PlayStation 3 - and its Blu-ray drive.
According to Harrison, there are "right now more than 100 Blu-ray movies available today, in the US." Problem is, Phil, even when we give you credit for instant classics like Ultraviolet and Basic
In today's newly released teaser trailer, Electronic Arts has announced a new installment of the NBA Street series - and that's about it. The video makes a point that everyday people need relatable heroes and that idolized hero should be a basketball superstar who also stays true to his roots. Street fans'll just be happy to see the urban/aggressive NBA counterpart return.
Right now, the game's being called, simply, NBA Street, which is sure to cause all kinds of fun Google and Ebay moments
You must click the Movies tab above. You must bear witness to the most amazing video for any Star Wars game ever (and, yes, that includes the Lego Star Wars videos that combine Yoda's head with Leia's golden bikini-clad torso). Keep in mind that this video (leaked a week ago on YouTube and now released officially by LucasArts as the mother of all teasers) is what gaming industry-heads call "target video" and so is not actually of any in-game footage or a tech-demo as previously reported, but

Square Enix, the developer behind Final Fantasy and a host of other successful RPGs, has decided to start work on its own games machine.
It seems Square has been liaising with Japanese coin-op giant Taito to produce some sort of games related hardware. If that sounds vague, that's because Squre Enix president Yoichi Wada doesn't seem too clear on what the product will be either. "In our talks with Taito [which was acquired by Square Enix in September], ideas for an actual

Six years in development don't end here...
Microsoft has revealed plans to pump up Kameo: Elements of Power for the 360 with brand new modes and difficulty levels. This leaves us wondering if, nine months on, anyone is so unfortunate as to still be trying to squeeze fun from that particular rock. If you've got nothing better to do, or are still desperately attempting to justify the $60 it originally cost, head over to the game's official site to find out the details on this Resusci Annie

Microsoft believe that sales of Xbox 360 will have reached the 10 million mark by the end of November, which means PlayStation 3 and Wii will launch in the face of what Microsoft is describing as an "Xbox Xmas".
"We'll have an installed base of around ten million plus before they [PS3 and Wii] launch," UK head of Xbox marketing, Stephen McGill, told UK industry magazine, MCV. "We had a terrific E3 that showed what a great future Xbox 360 has, that we're the only place for
