Here is the highlight of the week and the newest title to a red hot franchise. Modern Warfare 2 takes off right after Call of Duty 4.

The ultranationalists and terrorists are back, the game will take you to all the hotspots around the world, from the geographically challenging mountain regions to the war torn deserts. With the arsenal of weapons and all the millions of comrades at your side, you can head right off into battle.

All you have to do now is join your friends on the frontlines and fight.

Enough of wars and weapons, let's do something happy, something your little siblings and kids can join in. Create a band to rock the universe in Lego Rock Band. Build your own world, stage and cool props and perform. Those who prefer to focus more on the music side can jam songs with friends with Band Hero.

Get yourself a new pet, one that can be with you wherever you go, one that can fight with you. Capture tiny monsters with the PSP camera in Invizimals, tame him, pet him and teach him tricks. Connect with your friends through the ad hoc network and pit the monsters against each other or engage in story missions when no one's around.

For more extraterrestrial sightings, join the Star Wars in the Ultimate Sith Edition.
