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 Â£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.
