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

Christmas comes in approximately another two weeks, for those who still can't find something for their family and friends, its time to really start looking. Kingdom Hearts: Re: Chain of Memories, for example, is a wonderful game for the whole family to enjoy.

Other interesting games which are suitable for parties that came out this week include the massive fighting festival Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes. Heat up this winter season with a series of punches and kicks on your Nintendo Wii™.

Transform your home into a game arcade by getting the Cross Generation of Heroes fighting stick for more fun.

Take your bike out for a ride in the the grand SBK-08 Superbike World Championship. Make use of the networking facilities of your PlayStation3 and invite everyone you know to the races. With the large amount of game modes, you are sure to be able to find the one that suits your abilities best.

The tarnished American Dream is now open to the Chinese speaking community. Grand Theft Auto IV came out as Simplified and Traditional Chinese versions this week. Use this holiday season as a chance to reflect on what it really takes to make dreams come true.

Singing is a common activity in parties. ABBA Singstar is one game that everyone could all join in. Through Mama Mia the movie, ABBA's classics reached a new height in popularity amongs people of all ages. Sick of Christmas Carols, try some other songs and discover the musical talents within your family.

Spend a Fairy tale Christmas with Chocobo in the new Mahou no Ehon game. Choco is going to save the world by going into the picture books created by Cid and rid it from strange happenings. With Chocobo, will the characters in Cid's world reach their "And they live happily ever after"?

A number of cute RPGs are released, all ready for the season. Besides Chocobo's Mahou no ehon, Falcom's sweetly light fantasy RPG Zwei!! on PSP.
