Weekly Games Update: Super Smash Bros. Brawl, God of War: Chains of Olympus, Silent Hill: Origins, Major League Baseball 2K8, Bully: Scholarship Edition & much more.


Welcome to this week's games news update. Since the toys section have been removed from the games update and takes up a separate one all for itself, from this week onwards, this news update is to be dedicated to games and games alone.

Many exciting games have been published this week. This includes the largest scale fight which every gamer is eagerly waiting for, the US version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl is in stock. Meet your favorite characters, fight with them and defeat the evil together. Along with the game, Super Smash Bros. Brawl Prima Official Game Guide is also available at Play-Asia.com.

Another popular title released this week is the God of War: Chains of Olympus (Greatest Hits) that delves into Greek mythology and the question of self sacrifice and redemption. God of War: Chains of Olympus Official Strategy Guide is also available at the event of the player losing themselves in this mythological world.

Silent Hill: Origins conjures a world of horrors such that only the fittest may survive. Face the terror in this game and find out about the deepest, darkest secrets that have been plaguing the hero Travis Gradys since childhood.

To those who wishes to step away from the combat and horror, Play-Asia.com brings you the sports game Major League Baseball 2K8 to your PlayStation3™, and a funny retelling of everyone's worst high school nightmare, Bully: Scholarship Edition [Xbox360™ and Nintendo Wii™].
