has sold six million copies worldwide, and has been in the UK
charts for 40 weeks. GTA: Vice city is GTA4 and not an add on disc as
originally thought. Development for the game started after the completion of
GTA3 back in November 2001. The theme for the game is 80s Miami, with
obvious references to the TV show Miami Vice. Dedicated gamers may
have guessed the location of the squeal by various clues in GTA3. The
most obvious one being when one game character said "I'll see you in Miami".
The sequel will feature an improved game engine which will improve collision
detection and cut scenes. Vice City will be bigger and better, with a
whole new game world to explore. Reading between the lines and looking at
the box art the new game may just feature a helicopter with machine guns and
a motorbike. There will also be all new cars and characters. The soundtrack
will be a classic 80s style. Sony Computer Entertainment has made a deal
with Rockstar that will make the following GTA games PS2 exclusive for the
next 4 years. GTA: Vice City is due out in November. Rockstar have
created two web sites relating to GTA: Vice City. The web sites
contain subtitle hints as to various game elements in the new GTA.

very early days for the development of this game but here's a sneak peak at
Ubi Soft's new shooter Far Cry. Developed by Crytek Far Cry
will appear on the PC next spring with a PS2 version set to follow. The game
is a squad-based affair with large environments to play in. The screenshots
(PC version only) reveal tropical environments, detailed characters and huge
draw distances. You play the part of a boat captain escorting a journalist
on a special assignment, but before long war breaks out. Set a decade into
the future, the weapons are a blend of shotguns and machine pistols. More
advanced futuristic weaponry becomes available as you progress and your
opponents switch from human soldiers to dinosaurs. Far Cry came about
from a tech demo designed to showcase Nvidia's GeForce 3 graphics card. Most
of Far Cry will be set outdoors. With enemy is looking excellent
Far Cry is shaping up to be a promising title.
F355 was originally released on the Dreamast and built
up a reputation as one of the most realistic driver games to grace a console
(apart from GT of course). And now as Sega is going all formats F355
is coming to PS2 this September. The game will feature six tracks including
Suzuka, Motegi Oval Speedway and Ferrari's custom built test track at Monza.
As with the original release and all the Sega conversion F355 will
come with a 60Hz option.
