    Gamespot and IGN both have new previews up on these 2 games and they seem to be coming along very nicely. Sounds like the graphics in SH3 have taken a good leap forward and its a nice bonus having the soundtrack cd bundled with the game!

    Also Gaming Age have posted a list of Konami's confirmed games for this year it's a bit PS2 heavy but i'm sure more titles will be announced nearer E3.

    Kind of surprising that there is only one game for the Xbox. I would have thought that they would have put out the basketball, and TMNT game for that as well.

    Interesting.

    Ummm, does that mean that Silent Hill 3 is not coming out for the Xbox even though SH 2 was/is released?

    Yup, Konami announced that due to really bad X-Box hardware and software sales in Japan, their Japanese releases would be indefinitely halted. As for American releases, they probably just decided to release less overall.

    Is anything known about the Turtles game? Any chance it'll carry forward the old arcade game tradition, or will it just be a one-on-one fighter? I read something about "battling your way through Foot Soldiers," so I'm hoping that means a next-gen follow-up to Turtles in Time.

    I too am curious about the Turtles game for that same reason Greg. I don't want anything fancy, just a souped-up arcade Turtles game for four. [​IMG]

    Better yet, since Konami made the old ones, I wonder what the chances are of putting both the first arcade game and Turtles in Time in this new one as perfectly ported bonus extras.

    Oh, a man can dream... [​IMG]
