Rockstar announced today that it will be hosting a massive Table Tennis competition over Xbox Live. Thousands of qualifying players will battle it out against others in their region for the chance at a trip to Paris to see 2006 Liebherr World Cup (which is the world's most prestigious Table Tennis event... don't worry, we had to look it up too) or exclusive Killerspin table tennis

Second in our series of exclusive Test Drive Unlimited videos is this incredible footage of the AC Cobra 289 zipping around parts of the 10,000 miles of open Hawaiian roads that feature in Eden Game's gorgeous looking racer.
The sporty AC Cobra 289 followed on from the original Cobra 260, but is significantly more powerful as the engine is capable of putting out 271hp at 5,750rpm, giving the two-seater a top speed of 140mph.

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

Microsoft Game Studios is "more than happy" with the progress being made on Fable 2, according to a blog posted on Lionhead's website by their community bod, Sam Vantilburgh.
New builds are being delivered to Microsoft each month and both the publisher and development team seems pleased with the progress so far.
While the game is little more than embryonic at present - Vantilburgh writes that artists are handing in concept art alongside models and textures - there is
It's been awhile since we've heard anything from time-manipulating shooter TimeShift, but this new grip of screens proves that it's still alive and kicking. After doing a little shifting of its own from one publisher to another, it appears that, although delayed, TimeShift still looks fantastic on both 360 and PC (the Xbox current-gen version has been scrapped). These new shots show off some of the vehicular options you'll get to tool around in as well as a double-crossbow-looking contraption
Ubisoft delivered another little video for Rayman Raving Rabbids, and we've begun to detect a theme here. The third in their series of "Bunnies can't..." shorts, this episode depicts a Raving Rabbid bunny attempting to play with fireworks with decidedly mixed results. While these clips are entertaining, we'd still like to see more actual gameplay in them.
Still, we eagerly await future installments in this series, because we're hoping that they'll include: Bunnies can't perform colonoscopies,

Test Drive Unlimited's massive online racing fest - hit the preview tab above to read all about it - is swiftly accelerating to a September launch date for Xbox 360, and we've pulled up some footage of one of the more ludicrously detailed cars in the game - the Spyker.
This brand new footage will give you an idea of the level of detail in Test Drive Unlimited's car-porn world. The sparkly, sequin-like polished dashboard gleams, the shimmering bodywork reflects, the wheels

Yet another image has appeared today that is claimed to be the first ever GTA IV screenshot. Except, of course, it's not. In fact, with a little research, we found that the image - originally posted on GTA-Four.net - comes from 3D design site 3DBlasphemy, titled City Street 2004.
But we're not disappointed. Take a look at the image - doctored to include a line of 'official' Rockstar North copyright text - and ask yourself if this is really what you want GTA IV to look like.
