From the publisher: Immerse yourself in the magical world of The Golden Compass, the upcoming video game based on the highly anticipated new film from New Line Cinema.

It is a world where witches fly through frozen skies, giant armored bears fight to defend their kingdom and where sinister Gobblers kidnap children and carry them to a frozen wasteland. And it is a world of intense danger and amazing adventure for the rebellious Lyra Belacqua.

Her uncle, Lord Asriel, has been imprisoned, her best friend Roger kidnapped and now she must leave the safety of Jordan College to rescue both. Joining Lyra in her mission is her animal daemon, Pan, as well as a giant and powerful polar bear, Iorek, and the mysterious Golden Compass - a truth-telling device that will help lead the way. Together they embark on an epic journey of action, exploration, collaboration and discovery.


Based on the movie release of the same name, Sega's action adventure The Golden Compass is in stock today, shipping as US release versions for PlayStation3™, Xbox360™, Nintendo Wii™, PlayStation2™, Nintendo DS™ and PSP™.

Also available is Prima Games' Official Strategy Guide. Please note that the official Asian PS3™ and PSP™ release versions have been cancelled.



From the publisher: From director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg comes a thrilling battle between the heroic Autobots® and the evil Decepticons®. When their epic struggle comes to Earth, all that stands between the Decepticons® and ultimate power is a clue held by young Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf).

Unaware that he is mankind's last chance for survival, Sam and Bumblebee, his robot disguised as a car, are in a heart-pounding race against an enemy unlike anything anyone has seen before. It's the incredible, breath-taking film spectacular that USA Today says "will appeal to the kid in all of us."

One of the most popular movie release in 2007 is now available on HD DVD. Transformers is shipping today as Two-Disc Special Edition at US$ 31.90 only. This edition supports English audio with Chinese, French and Spanish subtitles.
