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.

Microsoft has revealed plans to pump up Kameo: Elements of Power for the 360 with brand new modes and difficulty levels.

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 knew Sonic wouldn't be alone, as telekinetic Silver the Hedgehog has already been revealed as a major player, but now we can see Shadow breaking loose - this time completely gun-free.
You'll see plenty of Sonic shredding through dense vegetation and Shadow looking relatively menacing, but the new screens also reveal a volcano area littered with tiny
