Sony PSP Go! Details Leaked Early

Sony PSP Go! Console

Due to be one of Sony's big announcements at this year's E3, details of the brand new Sony PSP Go! hand-held games console were revealed today in the latest edition of the PlayStation Network's Qore interactive magazine, which was accidently released early. A "top secret" video showed the new Sony PSP Go! games console has a 3.8 inch screen, a slide-out control panel, 16GB of flash memory, with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. The Sony PSP Go! does not have a UMD drive - content and games will be downloaded or digitally transferred - and the console is much smaller and lighter than the Sony PSP 3000. It was made clear that the PSP Go! is not designed to replace the PSP 3000 and PSP games will continue to be released on the UMD format...

inFamous for PlayStation 3

inFamous for PlayStation 3

A devastating explosion rips through the heart of Empire City. Everyone at Ground Zero is killed. Everyone, except you... You play as Cole, a bike messenger caught in the centre of a sinister plot. Charged by the explosion, you begin to develop incredible powers: the ability to control electricity... inFamous offers an open-world environment, giving you complete freedom to explore the quarantined city: on the streets and scaling the cityscape. You decide how you use your new super-powers. Your actions affect you, the citizens, the city, and how events unfold around you. Be a hero and protect the innocent from criminal gangs terrorizing the city. Or create chaos as you seek revenge on the villains responsible for the explosion. Exclusive to the Sony PlayStation 3, Sucker Punch's inFamous "steals" the best elements from many other games, fusing them together in way that is paradoxically both fresh and familiar, delivering an increasingly epic adventure that is immense fun to play...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine Uncaged

X-Men Origins: Wolverine for PS3, XBOX 360 & Wii

Based on the blockbuster superhero movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which opens in cinemas today, X-Men Origins: Wolverine Uncaged the video game expands on the movie's key scenes and adds to the storyline. Uncaged's developers Raven have clearly researched the Wolverine comics, offering a much more brutal and bloody experience than the movie. Wolverine's ability to rapidly regenerate allows you to withstand violent attacks whilst slashing your opponents into pieces. This is not the usual child-friendly movie tie-in: expect to see severed arms, legs and heads flying through the air. Armed with adamantium claws and feral senses, you will find yourself taking on platoons of soldiers, ripping helicopters apart, fighting Sabretooth and Gambit, and encountering other enemies from the Marvel universe. X-Men Origins: Wolverine Uncaged is available now for PC, PlayStation 3 & XBOX 360

The Nintendo Wii, PS2, Sony PSP and Nintendo DS versions of the game have less graphic violence
