While Bond fans will no doubt be rejoicing at the that EA are in the process of developing the 1963 espionage high jinks of From Russia with Love, they may be slightly dubious of how accurately the game will follow Fleming's original storyline after seeing the first batch of shots from the game.
While Connery's likeness seems to have been accurately captured, the fact that the sharp-suited secret service agent is seen bombing around in a jet-pack would seem to suggest that the publisher will

The much-anticipated release of Valve's PC masterpiece FPS Half-Life 2 for Xbox has finally been pinned down to this summer and, according to reports, could even improve on the PC original in some areas.
Save for a multiplayer mode, the Xbox version of Half-Life 2 will feature all the content from the original and will also include a menu option for downloadable content of some description - such as expansion packs and perhaps even the absent multiplayer mode.
According to reports, the
After it was that EA is working on a new game in the Need for Speed series entitled Most Wanted, the gaming giant has today confirmed the first details of the latest in its hugely successful street-racing series.
Most Wanted is currently being developed by EA Canada and, we're told, combines "the thrill of illicit street racing and tuner customisation with the intensity of strategic police pursuits that rival any Hollywood-style chase scene".
Due for release in November, the game will be
Despite being older than many fully-grown trees, Sean Connery is going to be Bond again, although this time his age won't matter (unlike when he returned to play Bond in 1983's Never Say Never Again - ouch), as he'll only be providing his voice.
Even though Roger Moore is by far the better Bond (don't tut, he so is), and, as such, EA should've chosen to resurrect both him and one of his films, EA has drafted in Connery to add an authentic vocal contribution to the publisher's videogame
Majesco Games has announced it is to publish the videogame version of Aeon Flux, the sci-fi film starring Oscar starlet and all-round beauty Charlize Theron that is itself based on the quirky Liquid Television cartoon of the same name.
While the original cartoon (that aired on the Liquid Television MTV line-up alongside Beavis & Butthead) featured a busty, scantily clad, scarily gun-happy monster of a woman, the film - and as such the game - will feature a much subtler character, better

Electronic Arts has today released the first ever shots of Burnout 4 while confirming that the game's official name will be Burnout Revenge.
Due to be released for PS2 and Xbox in September, we're promised that the game will let you "rip through rush hour traffic and lay waste to scores of rubbernecking roadhogs in an over-the-top scene of vehicular mayhem". Crikey.
As well as new race, crash and road rage modes, a Revenge feature pits gamers against the clock in the middle of rush hour

The first official screenshots of Sonic spin-off Shadow the Hedgehog reveal that the game will place a strong emphasis on shooting in addition to the super-speedy platforming for which the Sonic series is best known.
While we've previously run a handful of grabs taken from , these five new shots mark the first hi-res images of the game - which provides players with an assortment of weapons and vehicles with which to progress through the 50 missions - that we've seen.
