Weekly Games/Toys Update: Burnout: Paradise, Lost Odyssey, Lucky * Star, Advance Wars: Days of Ruin, Yggdra Union, Metroid/Zelda Statues & more


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

After a relatively calm period of about three weeks, we've finally received the first 2008 gaming hits. EA's Burnout: Paradise (PlayStation3™ / Xbox360™) and an English/Chinese language edition of Mistwalker's RPG hit Lost Odyssey have been the most popular next gen console sellers.

Popular PlayStation2™ release has been the anime based girl advanture game Lucky * Star (also available as DX Pack).

Excellent handheld gaming refill has also arrived with Nintendo's Advance Wars: Days of Ruin and Konami's The Prince of Tennis: Driving Smash! Side King for Nintendo DS™ as well as Winning Eleven Ubiquitous Evolution 2008 (Japanese / Asia) and Yggdra Union for PSP™.

It's also been a fantastic week for toy statues collectors with arrival of First4Figures' long-awaited Metroid Prime Samus - Varia Suit Statue and The Legend of Zelda - Skull Kid Collectible Statue as well as Gaya's Virtual Legends Resident Evil - The Umbrella Chronicles Pre-Painted 1/6 Scale Statue: Tyrant.

Last but not least some interesting gaming soundtracks have arrived this week, including Lost Odyssey Original Soundtrack, No More Heros Original Soundtrack and Naruto Shippuuden: Narutimate Accel Best Sound [CD+DVD Limited Release].

As usually, here's a summary of all new releases from this week, followed by a quick preview of what is expected to be hot next week.
