Welcome to this week's Games & Toys update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days.

With just a few more days left until Christmas Eve, it's been the last big video game release week of this year. Lots of interesting titles for the holiday season have been published during the last couple of days. At this time of the year, we like to point out to our Christmas Shopping Guide once more. Though it might be too late now to receive your presents on time, there's still plenty of interesting stuff to explore for the days to follow.

If you like to play with one of the newly released consoles during the winter time, then this week has been just perfect. For PlayStation3™ we've got the mech action game Armored Core 4, Taito's train simulation Railfan, Sega's 3D platform game Sonic The Hedgehog (also available for Xbox360™), Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII and more.

Xbox360™ highlights this week have been Capcom's Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, Star Trek: Legacy (region free) and the simulation game A Ressha de Gyouku HX / A-Train HX. Lots of new US version games have arrived for Nintendo Wii™, including Metal Slug Anthology, Far Cry Vengeance, Elebits and Super Swing Golf. Also finally third party Component AV Cables are in stock at US$ 9.99 only.

Maybe one of the last big PlayStation2™ highlights has also been released this week. Square-Enix's Seiken Densetsu 4 / Dawn of Mana is available as Japanese and Asia release version.

Of course there has also been something for handheld owners this week. For PSP™ we've got the Japanese language edition of Konami's Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops (Japanese / Asia) and Namco's RPG hit Tales of The World: Radiant Mythology (Japanese / Asia). Top selling NDS™ releases have been Full Metal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy (US version) and Hiite Utaeru DS Guitar M-06 (released early through Amazon Japan and expected to be in stock tomorrow).

Last but not least, also make sure to check out Falcom's Japanese PC RPG game Ys Origins and the hot selling The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Limited Edition Official Strategy Guide.

Nevertheless, there's still going to be some interesting releases next week. Sony's Formula One racing update will be available for PlayStation3™, PlayStation2™ and PSP™.


For Nintendo DS™ we are expecting Square-Enix's Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker (and licensed Pouch + Protector Kit). The anime fighter Dragon Ball Z Sparking! NEO is offically expected for January 1st and might still find the way into our storage by end of the week as week.


There's also be a couple of Asia and US version releases, so make sure to check our udpated news.
