Weekly Games Update: Watch the action in the cinema, participate in the action on your console - Hulk, Prince Caspian, Kung Fu Panda, The Bourne Conspiracy - and of course, MGS4 & much more!


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

The arrival of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of Patriots is no doubt the highlight of the week as well as the highlight of the summer. Check out the special post for more details on the MGS4 campaign.

The movie and the game industries are intimately linked, a game is often released alongside the showing of the movie. After visiting the cinemas for The Incredible Hulk and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, take the games back home, step in the heroes' pair of shoes and enjoy their thrilling adventures.

As the Beijing Olympics draws near, China gained more and more attention. The game Kung Fu Panda combines cool martial arts with the chubby loveable image of the Panda. This unique action game suitable for the whole family.

Robert Ludlums: The Bourne Conspiracy for Xbox360™ [Asian and US versions] and PlayStation3™ is another game that follows the trends set by novels and movies, however, the action is far less comedic. Get involved in the world of intrigue and espionage as you learn secrets that plague governments.

Journey to the world of the gods and participate in their battles in God of War. This release is an Entertainment Pack that comes with a bright red slim and lite PSP console specially designed for the game, silkscreen artwork and the Superbad movie.

Colorful fantasy RPGs that came out this week include Summon Night: Twin Age for Nintendo DS™ and the reprint of Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia for PlayStation2™.

Also using a colorful fantasy setting is Yamashita Shunya's newest artbook Wild Flower. The artist is the character designer for many famous games, his attention to details and knowledge in the human physique allows him to create the beautiful and life-like women you will see in his artbook.
