Official PlayStation Mag UK is finally getting its very own website.
Rather obviously, the site plans on having everything PlayStation-related, including news and an online community, right alongside sister site GamesRadar.
The site’s mainly just a place-holder at the moment, you can still head on over there and sign up for stuff, including celebratory giveaways.

GamesRadar‘s been renamed TombRadar for today as a marketing thing to celebrate the release of Tomb Raider: Underworld.
“Tomb Raider: Underworld is a great game, well worth the 9/10 scores it is picking up across gaming websites and magazines,” said James Binns, Future’s publishing director.
“Getting the message out there on launch day is essential in the games market and this takeover gives Eidos unprecedented cut through.”
It has a MetaCritic average of 78 percent.

GamesRadar’s reviewed Warhammer Online at 9/10, as you can see here. The site clearly managed to get on a server, something we didn’t manage to do last night. They were obviously allowed to register for the game as well. Again…
Its similarities to and improvements on WoW – most especially in PvP – make it the natural next home for anyone either dispossessed by Blizzard’s effort or who has held out from all MMOs in the hope of something a bit meatier. Playing Warhammer Online, it’s easy to forget that this game stems from a hobby so often accused of nerdiness. It shares design values, fiction and certain concepts with the Warhammer tabletop game, but really it’s only the name that binds them. Conan was supposed to be the so-macho MMO, but against this it seems a bit Sealed Knot. WAR is war. The associated intensity of this means it probably won’t pick up anything like the audience WoW has, but it will get a large one. And a very, very satisfied one at that.
Full thing through there.

Gamesradar has announced that is has integrated with N4G (News for Gamers).
“What this means for GamesRadar: Well first off, we’ll be getting our news faster than ever before and from sources all around globe,” says the site.
“Plus, the fact that the N4G relies heavily on user interest also means we’ll be getting more dynamic scoopage on the games we all truly give a crap about, while focusing less on puffy regurgitations on stuff like the Wii’s latest Bathtub Grouting Simulator. Like a built in BS filter.”

GamesRadar’s listed an ad for a UK section editor. Applications are open now.
Apparently, the successful journalist can look forward to being “paid (some) money to produce brilliant web content about videogame culture. And not get upset when they get flamed on blogs and forums.”
Take a look.

GamesRadar reckons it’s got the exclusive first look at a new Mortal Kombat game tomorrow. From the site:
GamesRadar UK have landed a rather special exclusive which we’re going to reveal – with video – tomorrow at 6pm GMT. We can’t say much more than that at the moment, except that it concerns a big fighting game franchise from Midway. Rest assured though, it’s going to be very cool.
Singular. GamesRadar UK has. This country.

Future’s relaunched GamesRadar.com, bringing in what editor Steve Pierce has called a “more regimented and ordered design”.
“We’ve gone for a much more regimented and ordered design which allows our writers, video editors and artists to get much more content on the pages,” he said. “Finally we’ve got a great ‘shop window’ for the innovative, informative, original, challenging and plain weird video game stories the GR editorial team dream up daily.”
Pierce added, “Put simply the site should now be much easier on the eye and much easier to get around.”
GamesRadar is Future’s flagship US site, with CVG covering the publishers online gaming fortunes in the UK.
