Arizona Wildfire — Pics Of Town Burned To The Ground

New devastating photos show 200 homes and 8,400 acres burned to the ground and charred in and around Yarnell, Arizona.

More than 1,000 people have evacuated the area, but no one has been more affected than the families of the 19 young firefighters who lost their lives in this horrific fire, which broke out after a lightning strike.

The brave men, whose average age was just 27, were killed by the flames in seconds. Their bodies were retrieved from the mountain where they died on July 1 — many had young families.

Japanese Vita Sales Toped 3Ds For The First Time Last Week

For the first time ever, Sony’s PlayStation Vita narrowly outsold the 3Ds in Japan last week with 63,581 units sold (up slightly from 62K sold in the prior week), compared to 61,008 units for Nintendo’s handheld (down from 77K in the prior week). In addition to finally topping Nintendo, this brings weekly Ps Vita sales almost up to the level that they were briefly at after Sony launched the handheld back in December 2011.

Undoubtedly, the reason behind the recent rise in Ps Vita sales is Sony’s decision to lower the handheld’s price in Japan late last month. However, it should be noted that new software has also played an important part in the recovery, with the Vita posting two debut titles in the top 20 last week; Sony’s Soul Sacrifice at #2 (and a Soul Sacrifice double pack at #10), and Namco Bandi’s Tales of Hearts R at #5.

Two TV spots and a host of new images from The Dark Knight Rises

It's been pretty quiet on The Dark Knight Rises front over the past few months as Disney's marketing machine went into overdrive on Marvel's The Avengers. However, with Earth's Mightiest Heroes now in cinemas, Warner Bros. has started to ramp up the publicity campaign on the final installment of Christopher Nolan's epic Batman saga. Earlier this week we got a new theatrical poster, which was quickly followed by six character posters, and now we also have two TV spots featuring snippets of brand new footage. Take a look...

And that's not all, as fan-site Batman-News got their hands on some brand new high-quality images featuring Batman (Christian Bale), Bane (Tom Hardy), Catwoman (Anne Hathaway), John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and director Christopher Nolan:

Our weekly round-up of all the big news stories from the world of movie superheroes…

'The Batman' - a wanted poster, and a letter from Peter Foley, Deputy Police Commissioner, who is thought to be the character portrayed by Matthew Modine and previously referred to as 'Nixon'.

As for the trailer itself, it was pretty spectacular stuff, giving us plenty of shots of Batman (Christian Bale), Bane (Tom Hardy) and Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) in action, as well as a surprising amount of footage featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt's mysterious police officer John Blake, and some brief glimpses of
