This Week’s Games
Will the PlayStation Move get the world moving? Like some industry experts have said, I think itâ€™ll take a while for word of mouth to spread before sales really become strong. The launch line-up may chart highly next week though, thanks to early adopters who want to try the technology first. That line-up in full: Eyepet: Move Edition, Kung Fu Rider, Start the Party, Sports Champions and Racket Sports. Thereâ€™s also the budget-priced Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, but that was released last week.
With Xbox 360 owners currently enjoying Halo: Reach, only one publisher is brave enough to release another Xbox 360 game this week. That publisher is EA, with NHL 11.
Thereâ€™s a fair few DS games out, but only two are worth mentioning – My World My Way is an RPG original released by Atlus, which Famitsu gave 31/40. Then thereâ€™s Last Window: The Secret of Cape West – a sequel to the lovely Hotel Dusk. Eurogamer gave it a 7/10. The PSP gets just one new release – Phantasy Star Portable 2 from Sega.
On Wii thereâ€™s reportedly rubbish RPG Eldar Saga (aka Vahalla Knights: Eldar Saga) and the probably alright Ferrari: The Race Experience from System 3.
Next week: Dead Rising 2, Formula 1 2010, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, Club Penguin: Game Day, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Ace Combat: Joint Assault, Quantum Theory, Trackmania, World Game Tour, Putty Squad and Real Heroes: Firefighter.
