Athens 2004 screens go for gold

Sony have released a handful of new shots of the forthcoming Athens 2004 - the official game of this year's Olympics, no less.

With 25 different events on offers, the selection of disciplines is certainly comprehensive and developers Eurocom promise that "the game's advanced motion-capture technique will deliver unprecedented control and flexibility allowing for more complex and realistic movement, guaranteeing an accurate and immersive experience for players."

In among the full range of athletics-based endeavours that you'd expect (some of which can be seen in these new shots), the game also includes equestrian, shooting, swimming, gymnastics and weightlifting events across seven official venues. Start training now for some serious pad-pounding.

Athens 2004 will be released for PS2 in July
