It’s a good week for both Wii and PSP owners, but mostly for the former. On Nintendo’s white opus there’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2008, The House of the Dead, Dancing Stage Hottest Party, Sega Bass Fishing and the sadly offline-only Worms: A Space Oddity amongst others. Then over on PSP there’s the God of War: Chains of Olympus and the budget-priced Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops Plus. God of War has been getting high review scores despite not being by the developers behind the PlayStation 2 originals, although EDGE pointed out that a lot of enemies and such have been recycled.
Review scores for Sega’s Viking: Battle for Asgard on the other hand haven’t been too hot. Sega are also releasing another two titles on Xbox 360 this week – Football Manager 2008 and a conversion of the PC RTS Universe at War. The PlayStation 3 gets the long awaited and also cheap Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and Everybody’s Golf World Tour.
The slew of virtual pet games continues on DS with the awfully named Bunnyz, while Sony have rather silently shoved out the rather rubbish Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters on PlayStation 2. It only got a 5 from Eurogamer earlier this week. Looks like they should have left it on PSP.
