As the latest Sam Fisher adventure sneaks towards its September release, Ubisoft thought it would share a few more visuals of Splinter Cell: Double Agent.
Double Agent is, of course, the game where Sam Fisher goes bad, but only because he's trying to do good. He's infiltrating a terrorist group in order to take them down from within, but to earn their trust he has to behave like a criminal.
The game will feature all the high tech gadgetry and stealth aspects from previous games, but you'll be
We got the latest go faster shots of Forza Motorsport 2, Microsoft's big fall release for Xbox 360.
The sequel is built from scratch rather than being a scrubbed up version of the original Xbox game and will run at 60 FPS, as will the reflection mapping. The cutting-edge visuals will be used to show the fully licensed vehicles in the best light possible, and there are more than 300 of them from over 50 of the world's leading manufacturers.

Wes Craven, the Hollywood director responsible for the Scream and Nightmare on Elm Street films, could be getting involved with games development.
Craven told reporter Dean Takahashi - the author of The Xbox 360 Uncloaked - that he was "in talks to create an original game". Unfortunately, the movie man didn't offer any more details than that.
If these talks lead to production, Craven will join a growing list of Hollywood heavyweights getting involved in games development.
Publisher Activision is giving gamers and comic fans a chance to be part of its forthcoming superhero action-RPG Marvel: Ultimate Alliance as the voice of one of the in-game characters.
Previously Activision held online auditions for fans to become the voice of weedy Hulk alter-ego Bruce Banner. The response was so overwhelming that it's decided to extend the competition to allow fans to try out for the voice of the Sub-Mariner Namor. We reckon you should go for fishy and
EA Sports dropped dual videos on us today featuring more puck play from NHL 07. Each teaser focuses on a team, either the St. Louis Blues or the Florida Panthers, and you can clearly make out #12 Olli Jokinen in the Florida video. Whether or not you'll be able to bury the business end of your hockey stick in an opponent's neck remains to be seen, but watch the videos (by clicking on the movies tab above) and decide for yourself if anything qualifies as high sticking.
A selection of Medal of Honor: Airborne shots have dropped into our laps and give us a further glimpse at some of the night jumps that will appear in the upcoming World War II first-person shooter.

Microsoft could be working on a new Xbox 360 controller, designed to be more intuitive to use, according to Xbox chief Peter Moore.
Speaking at an EA event Moore stated that Microsoft would be looking at "any way that we can make games easier and more intuitive and that takes the intimidation factor away from what is a pretty complex device now when you look at the controller".
He then went on to make references to Nintendo's Wii and the idea of getting more people into
The latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine has some juicy little tidbits in its Rumor Mole section. Apparently, one of the editors at our sister publication lucked out by sitting behind an EA exec who spewed forth a fountain of delightful leaks. The most riveting of these is that EA will be reviving the long-lost Road Rash series on next-gen consoles at their UK studio... which has us salivating after playing Moto GP and wanting nothing more than to belt our fellow riders with a length of chain
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
