Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. Before we get to our usual business however, here is a game that deserves more than a summary. The stylish rhythm game with the rising star in the music industry, Miku, is here in her very own game Project Diva.

Project Diva is Miku's serious debut into the game world. Produce Miku into a top idol, control her dance motions in the rhythm games. The quicker your reflexes, the better she dances.

Not only are you involved in all her performances, you are in charge of the back stage work as well. You decorate her chambers, coordinate her outfits and change her image.

Let other vocaloids join in the fun, see Megurine Ruka and Jyakune Haku in some of the MTVs. Get high scores in the games and take the chance to see your idols perform for you. Fan favorite songs are included in this fun package along with 7 new songs written by the fans.

Project Diva is here today, build your own stage and your own vocaloid:

Shooter fans have their field day. A large amount of high quality shooters are out in the last seven days. This include Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, Dux and Conduit.

No matter whether you are the type that prefer to brave the battlefield with your gun and your gun only or whether you like zooming into the frontlines with your cute little plane, these three exciting shooting sprees will keep your adrenaline high through out the summer holidays.

Besides shooters, popular Japanese RPGs and actioners are localized for English speaking gamers. Devil Summoner, a spin off from the Shin Megami Tensei series is out. Contract with the beautifully designed devils and fight to save your city.

Megaman Star Force 3 comes out as Black Ace and Red Joker, choosing your battle style, go for the Black Ace if you value speed and get the Red Joker if you prefer powerhouse characters.

Go somewhere cool this summer with your family. How about the icy theme park that is Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs?

Besides the 3D animation inspired game, there is Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. The newest films are hitting the cinemas, but you don't have to be a spectator like the rest of the viewers. Get under the skin of the characters and be them.
