Next gen console highlights have been Sega's tennis arcade hit Power Smash 3 / Virtua Tennis 3 (Japanese / Asia) for PS3™, Bomberman Land Wii and Eyeshield 21: Field no Saikyou Senshi Tachi for Nintendo Wii™ as well as the Asia release version of Def Jam Icon for Xbox360™.

The PlayStation2™ continues to be strong in the market with releases such as Spike's Kenka Banchou 2: Full Throttle, the Sega Ages Monster World Complete Collection and Konami's GuitarFreaks & DrumMania Masterpiece Gold.

Popular handheld game releases have been Seiken Densetsu: Heroes of Mana and Izuna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja (US version) for Nintendo DS™ as well as Marvel Trading Card Game for PSP™.

Last but not least, Milestone's arcade shooter Karous is marking an end of the Dreamcast™ era. Due to Sega's GD-ROM production stop, this game is expected to be the last commercial Dreamcast™ GD-ROM release ever.
