Due to be released at the end of the year, the TV show spin-off will also feature the faces and voices of numerous members of the cast, including James Gandolfini, the bear-like behemoth who plays suburban mob-father Tony Soprano.

Already hailed as the Killzone killer, Gears of War is the game that has launched a thousand clicks, but now it's time for a few million more as Microsoft has released two more brand new shots.
If you haven't heard of this Xbox 360-exclusive shooter before, you must live in a cave on Mars and only be stealing internet access off a passing WiFi-enabled asteroid. And so, just for you, here is a brief summary: Best. Looking. Game. Ever.
Gears of War is based around a team of hyper-intelligent
Microsoft, in the shape of Peter Moore, its vice president of entertainment, seems to have already conceded defeat to Nintendo and Sony in the battle for E3 headlines.
In a move already seen by many as an attempt to put a positive spin on what looks to be a quiet show for the Seattle giant, Moore said that "winning E3 is overrated; I won it at Sega in 1999 and 2000 with Dreamcast and see where that got me."

Activision has been granted the rights to produce video games based on the James Bond license. MGM Interactive and EON Productions (the companies that control the digital Bond) announced a blanket deal with Activision that covers "current and next-generation consoles, PC, and handheld platforms."
