News Roundup •••• Microsoft will not be announcing a new Xbox console at E3 this summer or "anytime soon. " I suppose it makes sense to wait it out until they've replaced literally every console that's gotten the Red Ring of Death. [ PC Magazine ] •••• The video game BAFTAs were held on Friday night in London, with "Portal 2" taking top honors.

SALT LAKE CITY -- Too much rest and too much Karl Malone was the recipe of defeat for the Seattle SuperSonics last night, as they fell 108-100 to the Utah Jazz in the opening game of a second-round NBA playoff series.The decision came before 19,911 towel-waving customers in the deluxe and at times deafening Delta Center.It was Seattle's first game since last Thursday's victory over Golden State that clinched the first-round series. Utah, meanwhile, had played Sunday and Monday and the Jazz had an energy and cohesion that the Sonics were obviously without.

LANDOVER -- There was nothing unusual about Seattle SuperSonics forward Shawn Kemp shaking his head after the dunk that started the third quarter last night -- except that, for a change, he was the recipient of the facial, courtesy of Gheorghe Muresan. It gave the Washington Bullets a 12-point lead, and an upset appeared in the making.But once again, it was just a tease. By game's end, all was back to normal, as Seattle led by as many as 19 points on its way to a 121-107 victory over the Bullets before 16,940 at USAir Arena.

For a while yesterday, as the NBA's mid-afternoon trading deadline approached, it appeared the day would pass without significant movement, as many league observers had predicted. But just under the wire, the Seattle SuperSonics and Milwaukee Bucks pulled off a blockbuster deal, swapping All-Star guards. Gary Payton moved East and Ray Allen went West in a five-player trade that also sent forward Desmond Mason to the Bucks, while the Sonics also received guard Ronald Murray and point guard Kevin Ollie.

$29.99 for Xbox 360, also for PlayStation 3. Rated 10-plus **** (4 STARS) "Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection" is similar to the "Sega Genesis Collection" from a few years back, but it includes many more games and replaces a couple of the older set's duds with, well, new duds. But this collection of nearly 50 games from Sega's glory days is mostly good stuff. It offers all the classic Streets of Rage brawlers, the original Sega Master System's Phantasy Star, as an unlockable bonus to go along with the three Genesis entries, and many more.

Los Angeles -- If Barbie were a song, what would she sound like? The question sat in Tena Clark's mind as she drove through downtown Los Angeles last fall. The answer was no small matter. With Barbie's sales sagging, toy maker Mattel Inc. had turned to Clark, a pioneer in the emerging field of "sonic branding," to give the icon of American beauty a marketing face-lift. Recent scientific research had suggested that distinct combinations of a few musical notes - known in the advertising world as a "sonic brand" - could have more influence on consumers than the longer, frequently changing jingles Mattel had used for years.

SEATTLE -- The Seattle SuperSonics are the only team still playing that doesn't have a superstar to carry them. But they don't need to be carried when they run.The star-less Sonics finally quit worrying about what they lacked and played wide-open, full-court basketball, pounding the Phoenix Suns, 120-101, yesterday to even the best-of-seven Western Conference finals at two games apiece.They don't have a Charles Barkley, a Michael Jordan or a Patrick Ewing, but they did regain that all-for-one, full-speed-ahead mentality that characterized their 55-win regular season.

Sometimes you have to revisit the roots to appreciate the fruits. With their new album and tour, the members of Sonic Youth are doing just that. The CD, Rather Ripped, landed in stores Tuesday, and it "encapsulates everything we've done up to this point," says bassist-vocalist Kim Gordon, who's calling from her western Massachusetts home. Sonic Youth plays the 9:30 Club tonight. "The album is what we felt like playing. We didn't belabor it." To support Rather Ripped, the experimental rock band kicked off its two-month summer tour this week at New York's legendary punk venue, CBGBs, the place where it all gelled for the group back in the early '80s.

Jonathan Leshnoff's office at Towson University couldn't be much more colorless -- unadorned white walls; dark, standard furnishings; a portable keyboard against one wall reinforcing the stark dominance of black and white in the room. But it's here that the composer creates the colorful, emotionally active music that is bringing him more and more national attention. A case in point is Leshnoff's new Violin Concerto, a meaty mix of drama and poetry, energy and repose, that vividly exploits the coloristic possibilities of the solo instrument and the orchestra.
