160w ago - Disney Interactive Studios London Producer Jason Ried has announced that Split/Second PSP arrives this week with new features and a fresh launch trailer!
To quote: Greetings, and welcome to the next exciting installment of Split/Second. I'm happy to say we've managed to cram all of what made Split/Second great onto the PSP.
At Disney Interactive Studios, we're really proud of what Black Rock Studio created and were excited to see what Sumo Digital could add to the PSP version.
As Split/Second was a visual treat, we knew that we couldn't compromise for both the size of the power plays and sheer on-screen excitement. We set out to create a spectacular-looking PSP game and I hope that everyone will agree that this is one of the best-looking racing games on the PSP.
Another vital ingredient was to make sure that the handling and controls suited the PSP. Sumo are very experienced with years of racing experience and so set about creating a new driving model from scratch. The end result should be a fun, quick and skillful driving system that rewards users who push the cars to the max.
To add something completely new to the game we then added four all new Challenge modes which test the drivers in completely different...

187w ago - Today the Red Dead Redemption official launch trailer arrives, with the video game hitting both the PS3 and XBox 360 on May 18, 2010 in North America and May 21, 2010 in Europe.
Red Dead Redemption gives the player a large, open world environment allowing the player to move freely. Players on foot can walk, talk, shoot, kill, ride, run, interact with the environment, and combat enemies with firearms.
Different breeds of horses are the main forms of transportation. Swimming is not an option, as the protagonist John Marston cannot swim and will drown if the player ventures too far into a body of water (though he is able to wade where the water is shallow enough).
The open world environment allows players to choose how they want to play. Storyline missions are for progress. Along with the main storyline, players can take part in random events they encounter as they explore the West.
These include public hangings, ambushes, pleas for assistance, and dangerous animal attacks. Players can also take part in optional side activities ranging from standoffs, gambling, and hunting fauna for pelts and meat.
Finally, Red Dead Redemption makes use of a morality system where players have the ability to gain positive or negative 'honor'. Some of the ways to gain positive honor include...
