Weekly Games Update: Get ready for sports and action - We Ski, Deca Sports, UEFA, MotorStorm Complete, serious shoot outs in HAZE, Castle of Shikigami III & more!


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

Quite a lot of hot releases came out this week, these include both US and Japanese games as well as OSTs. We have the NTSC J encoded Japanese version of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Bundle where you can taste the excitement of becoming a rock legend on your Nintendo Wii™.

A number of sports game are released this week for various consoles. Enjoy some family fun with We Ski and Deca Sports on your Nintendo Wii™, now you can engage in summer and winter sports regardless of the weather or seasons.

Lead your national football team to victory in UEFA 2008 on your Xbox360™, PlayStation3™ and Sony PSP™. If you crave for sports that are less regulated, we bring you MotorStorm Complete [JPN and Asian versions] to your PlayStation3™. This action racer is re-released by Sony with all the expansion packs installed and sold at a very reasonable price.

UBI Soft's FPS HAZE [JPN and Asian versions] for PlayStation3™ are released this week. Get your hands on some state of the art weapons and view a complex storyline. Another shooter, the Castle of Shikigami III for Nintendo Wii™ is just as challenging because the point system requires you to fly as close to the enemies as you can before you pull the trigger.

More fighting games under the Bleach franchise are released this week. The best priced versions of two exciting Nintendo DS™ games are Souten ni Kakeru Unmei and Kokui Hirameku Chinkon Uta. So for those who had missed out these two games when they were released, this is a good chance to grab them.

Aside from all the sports and action, adventure in the land of the Greek gods in Hercules no Eikou: Tamashii no Shoumei. If that is still too much fighting for your tastes, let others do the fighting for you in Hiiro no Kakera [limited and standard edition], where you play the role of a princess protected by six charming bodyguards.

A collection of lovely OSTs from hit games like Senjou no Valkyria, Taiko no Tatsujin and Star Ocean: Second Evolution are published. Make them your background music to your everyday life.
