$20 discounts on R6 Vegas, GRAW 2 and more

Looking for some great video game deals? Well, look no further than Circuit City and the Sunday newspaper ads. This week, Circuit City is slashing $20 off select games including titles like TMNT ($29.99), GRAW 2 ($39.99), Spider-Man 3 ($39.99) and Call of Duty 3 ($39.99). Also, since both the Red and Black Edition Player Packs will be free downloads, why not pick up Rainbow Six Vegas for the low, low price of $39.99 too? You can't pass that up. Maybe new releases are more up your alley, then we advise picking up a free $10 gift card with a Transformers: The Game purchase. And if you're in the market for Shadowrun, purchase it for $37.99 on Windows Vista and Circuit City will throw in a wireless receiver for free!

All deals are available online or in-store, so save a few bucks and pick up some new games to add to your video game library this week.

Spider-Man 3 is most popular on the 360

In the UK Spider-Man's console of choice is the Xbox 360. Activision's mediocre Spider-Man 3 swung its way to a multiplatform release including the 360, PS3, Wii, and PS2 among others. And when the UK sales figures were tallied the Xbox 360 version of the game accounted for a whopping 45% of total sales. The PS2 version (which looks just as good as the 360 version ... ouch) garnered 40% of the game's UK sales with the Wii totaling 10%.

What's most interesting is how well the Xbox 360 version of the game sold even outselling the huge install base the PS2 has. Even more interesting is that the PS3 numbers for Spider-Man 3 sales are pretty much non-existent. Either the 360's community is the prime demographic for the Spider-Man franchise or it could be the largest next-gen console install base, we can't be sure. But we do know that Spider-Man 3 is one huge marketing machine with a box office to prove it.

Spider-Man 360 skins


In honor of Spider-Man 3 hitting game retailers and theatres near you this past weekend, DecalGirl has come out with a line of "Webslinger" skins for your electronic devices, most notably, the Xbox 360 console, controller, and HD DVD player accessory. All in all they look pretty solid, and the pricing isn't terrible, as you can choose how much of your console you want to skin. Hopefully they'll come with a Venom themed variation of the skin, as that would be pretty badass. You open to skinning your 360 Spidey style?

Spider-Man 3 catches Achievements, akin to flies


The sleuths over at Xbox 360 Achievements uncovered the Achievement list for May's Spider-Man 3. Looking over the list, it seems to cover all the free-roaming and mission based aspects of the game, similar to Crackdown, but in an SM context. A cool thing we're seeing for the first time is a secret achievement that is simply listed as one in the details that isn't actually "hidden". Our guess is that it has to do with the symbiote costume and/or your actions with it.

So, we leave you with three queries. First, are you looking forward to going through the trick races and completing all the side quests for some Gamerscore goodness. Second, why does the gamer in question not have the "Master Web Swinger" Achievement if he's got the preceding and following ones? Finally, does the tendency for Spider-Man films and movies releasing in May have anything to do with the title character's Aunt?

Spider-Man 3 trailer, now with more Venom


The media hounds over at GameTrailers have uncovered a new trailer for Spider-Man 3 (available in HD here). The video shows off a massive city and some very detailed characters. The trailer gives us glimpses of all the villains in the movie, including the Sandman and the new Goblin. Venom, one of the best villains evar, is in there too, but you'll have to keep your eyes open to spot him. All in all the game is looking pretty sharp, and as long as it plays as well as Spider-Man 2, we'll be first in line to check it out. Having watched the new trailer, who's ready for some new gen webslinging?

Video: Spider-Man 3 expands into underground


Gametrailers has a new video for Spider-Man 3, showcasing the subterranean element of the game's enviroments. Not only does Spider-Man 3 have a realistic representation of Manhattan above the streets, but also has included the subway and sewer system below. While we find it easy to believe that the subway system is true to life, we don't know if the sewer system got the same treatment, or if it is open to artistic license for the sake of gameplay. Because seriously, who'd want to confirm that their sewers are accurate, right? In any case, the added depth to the environment is definitely promising. The video is also available in Standard and High Definition WMVs if it suits your fancy. Did you enjoy Spider-Man 2 last generation, and are you looking forward to Spider-Man 3?

New shots of Spider-Man 3


Gamertag Radio has posted some new screens of Spider-Man 3. Releasing this summer alongside the movie, Spider-Man 3 promises to return to the incredible gameplay and swing dynamics of Spider-Man 2. While the video we've seen so far is a little too pastel for our taste, there is no denying that webslinging, when done well, is some of the most fun you can have playing a video game. Here's hoping the game (and the movie) deliver. Hit the "read" link to check out the shots.

New Spider-Man 3 info revealed


TeamXbox recently sat down to speak with Treyarch's Chris Archer to discuss Spider-Man 3. The game should launch with the movie this May. Webheads will be happy to know that the swing system is based heavily on Spider-Man 2. The game also features a new spider sense, which allows you to see criminals and points of interest, rather than merely spotting icons on a map. Of course, the talk of the town is the new black Spidey suit. Players can look forward to spending up to 1/3 of Spider-Man 3 as the symbiote infested Peter Parker. Black suit Spider-Man will be capable of stronger attacks, including special "rage" attacks that have to be charged. Treyarch promises the biggest Spider-Man game yet with Spider-Man 3. There is also the possibility of some secret playable characters (one of which seems to be found). Embedded after the break is a newly released trailer for the game.
