For millions of gamers, moviegoers and comic book fans, summertime symbolizes one thing - awesome trailers for movies we're not going to see for a year. As far as we're concerned, there's only one movie coming out in 2007, and it's Spider-Man 3, a film that's making the rounds ahead of Superman Returns right now. Or you can just view it here.
It's just a teaser, but there's plenty to soak up. You get to plainly see the living, tar-like black costume overtake Peter Parker as he sleeps, as well
Here we are... almost a full week after the stated release of the 360 version of the Prey demo, and still we have no Prey to play. Initially, we were comforted by the softly murmured coos issuing from developer 3D Realms' honcho George Broussard via their forums and his first post on June 21 that stated simply:
"We do not want 360 people waiting up for the demo or having false expectations. The 360 demo will not appear on Marketplace tonight. I'm still waiting for specifcs, but I'm being told

We reported yesterday that hack 'n' slash action game Ninety-Nine Nights would only work with hard drive equipped Xbox 360's, but Microsoft has now stated that this is not the case and that the game will be playable on any of its next-gen machines, regardless of whether or not it has a hard drive.
The news that Ninety-Nine Nights would only be compatible with hard drive equipped consoles emerged after the game's information page on xbox.com clearly stated that a hard
When a new EA Sports title launches, it's usually one of the biggest games to hit that month, if not the entire year. So it's a little strange to us that all there is to show of NHL 07 are three screens and a brief trailer showcasing Moscow-born Alexander Ovechkin murderatin' fools on the ice. Regardless, we've got them ready for your prying eyes. Hit up the images tab for screens and then skate over to the movies icon for all the Ovechkin you can take.
Xbox Live Arcade games will be released in a series of collections for retail using the title Xbox Live Unplugged, it seems.
After Xbox chief Peter Moore's announcement last week, box art for the first volume has appeared on a US distributor's website and shows that the title will include a version of Geometry Wars and a one month's subscription to Xbox Live Gold. Also featured on the cover are images from Bejeweled 2 Deluxe, Wik: Fable of Souls, Hardwood Backgammon and Outpost Kaloki
A new "title update" has been released for the WWII-based shooter/strategy hybrid The Outfit designed to fix a few problems with online play. The list of "improvements" reads more like patch notes, as the bulk of them center on repairing malfunctioning multiplayer bits and retuning "Destruction on Demand" items and their cost. A number of improvements cover matchmaking and a few indicators of players' connection speeds have been implemented to keep unwanted latency (game chugginess) from

Epic fantasy action game Ninety-Nine Nights - due over here in September - will need the 360 hard drive to run the game, according Microsoft's own game information.
The forthcoming hack 'n' slash combat game requires the hard drive, presumably to cope with masses of on-screen activity and the frantic battlefield action that is featured.
This comes as something of a surprise as Microsoft was adamant that gamers buying the HD-less Core Pack for £209 wouldn't miss out

Microsoft has confirmed that it has no plans to drop the price of Xbox 360 this autumn, despite the imminent arrival of Sony's PlayStation 3.
John Porcaro, group manager of PR and communication for US Microsoft posted the following on his blog: "As you're all aware, there have been rumours of a price drop for Xbox 360 coming along later this year. The official word from folks in the know is that there are currently no plans for a price drop this fall."
Microsoft has released a special annotated version of the E3 trailer of intensely deep racing simulator Forza Motorsport 2. You can watch the original version here, free of the talking developer heads, but the new version points out lots of little bits you may have missed the first time around. Art Director John Wendl and Game Director Dan Greenwalt lead a guided tour through the trailer as they pick it apart, pointing out how the trailer illustrates the features of Forza 2 itself.
We've got the latest amusing video from the gang creating Rayman Raving Rabbids - just hit the Movies tab above to give it a view. In the second installment of what could be a neverending stream of clips showcasing what Rayman's enemies cannot do, we learn the murderous "rabbids" ain't so hot at housework.
