Zurg in battle

Pixar's 'Toy Story 3' comes out on June 18. Three days earlier, Toy Story 3: The Video Game comes out on Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and DS, PlayStation 3 and Portable. The game features both a story mode--which follows much of the arc of the film--as well as a unique 'toy box' adventure mode. The game was made by Avalanche Studios, which took two-and-a-half years to make the film. The PS3 version will feature arch-villain Zurg as a playable character.
