An early summer game drought

It’s Easter, so you would think that there would be plenty of new games out for the plucky youngsters who receive cold hard cash instead of chocolate eggs this weekend. Not so – you can count the games out this week on one hand.

Guitar Hero II on Xbox 360 is the biggest release; literally so, coming in a huge box and clocking in at £69.99. Then there’s Prince of Persia: Rival Swords on Wii and PSP. Don’t get too excited – it’s just a rejig of Two Thrones. That leaves just two more: the budget priced Charlotte’s Web on PlayStation 2 and Rayman Raving Rabbids on 360.

Next week is looking similarly dull, with only Harvest Moon DS, Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and Pokemon Ranger standing out. In fact, the whole of April is looking rather quiet – after today there’s nothing out on 360 for nearly a month.
