This Week’s Games
If youâ€™re wanting DJ Hero then youâ€™re also going to need a healthy bank balance – youâ€™ll struggle to find it for any less than Â£89.99. The Renegade Edition costs even more – (Â£139.99) but comes with a stand for the deck controller and mixes by Jay-Z and Eminem. Reviews have been very good, including a 9 from IGN and 92% from GamesMaster Magazine, but stillâ€¦itâ€™s Â£90 quid. I bet the controller doesnâ€™t cost much more than a fiver to actually make.
If you do happen to be surviving on a budget at the moment then thereâ€™s a lot of stuff out today that wonâ€™t leave a dent in your pocket. Semi-sequel Wii Fit Plus is Â£17.99 at Game while Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City is only Â£24.99. Iâ€™m going to give Activisionâ€™s Arcade Zone on Wii a mention – as well as basketball, air hockey and stuff it features some classic retro games like Freeway and Kaboom. Price? A nice Â£14.99.
This week also sees the multi-format release of Tekken 6 (providing we ignore Tekken Advance on GBA). Namco hopes this will get into the Christmas top 10. I donâ€™t fancy their chances much, even though reviews have been pretty good.
Next Week: Ghostbusters, Band Hero, Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Sith Edition, A Boy and His Blob, Rabbids Go Home, Dragon Age: Origins, Star Wars: Battlefront Elite Squadron, Need for Speed: Nitro, World Of Zoo and Madagascar: Kartz.
