GamesRadar conducted a private interview Wednesday with Shane Kim, the head of Microsoft Game Studios. Speaking two days after Sony's PlayStation 3 press conference, a relaxed Kim revealed that Microsoft has not altered its course based on its competitor's announcements and movement. “We didn't change anything for our press conference. Nothing that Sony has promised is going to make us change our strategy.” He said that with the addition of the Grand Theft Auto franchise to Xbox
For some reason, PC strategy games rarely make the transition to consoles intact. From Syndicate to StarCraft, would-be armchair generals have had to stomach ports that either lost some functionality, looked like crap or both.
That doesn't appear to be the case with the 360 version of The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth 2. Not only does this next-gen version let you control the same armies of orcs or elves that the PC version did, but the developers have apparently gone to great

For comic-book fans, the name "Superman" means many things: selflessness, hope, indomitable strength. For gamers, though, it simply means "run." As in, "run away from the video-game store until the menace passes safely into bargain bins."
So as you can imagine, Superman Returns has a tough row to hoe. Not only does it carry the stigma of being a movie-licensed game, but it also bears the name of a hero who hasn't produced a decent game since 1988's Superman arcade game. Even so, what we've
Like it or loathe it, Dead or Alive: Xtreme 2 is headed to Xbox 360, and Tecmo's unabashedly sexy trailer hints at several of the new mini-games that take the series beyond just its beach volleyball origins.
New elements include a water slide game, a tug of war on floating pool platforms and the back-to-back Hip Wrestling game, where your only goal is to grind your opponent off balance and send them off the platform with a splash. Volleyball, hopping and casino games will return as well, since

An original idea by game developer Rare, the game will debut this holiday, just a few months after the tie-in CGI animated cartoon debuts on American television. The game is not based directly on the show, but instead takes place in the same world of Viva Pinata Island.
