Thanks to the new team for putting this together:

Games Round-Up
NEWS

- EA won't release Battlefield 3 on Steam, and has pulled several major franchises from Steam.

- Xbox users, clear some room on your hard drives or rage quit, because the install for RAGE is over 22GB.

- New details about Borderlands 2 was released. They're adding new guns. Since there weren't enough in the first game...

- Valve announces new Counter Strike game. Counter terrorists win.


SONY

- The Playstation Network is getting first dibs on the for Assassin's Creed: Revelations.

- Call of Duty: Black Ops' new map pack includes putting players
on the moon.

- A final gasp for the PSP before the Vita hits shelves - new release bundles.

MICROSOFT

- Check out the indie games being released over the rest of the summer on XBLA.

- Rage will feature content that won't be accessable to anyone buying the game used without paying extra.

- For the three of you that care to know, Sonic 4 Episode 2 indo is 'coming soon.'

- Calling all Minecraft players - be a creeper on the go with these new kicks.

NINTENDO

- Just Dance 2 has apparently hit the five million mark for US sales.

- Nintendo of America will be watching 'very closely' over Xenoblades Chronicles' performance in Europe.

- Subsequently, with this new release, you should read up on Operation Rainfall's progress. They're a group dedicated to bringing that and a couple of other games to America for localization.

- One more reason Nintendo's feeling pressure? The iPhone.

RELEASES


Kyotokei (WiiWare)
Zombies Ruined My Day (XBLA)
Goals (XBL Indie)

I don't understand what they're doing with Half-Life 3. Is it even being made as of now?

It was a slow week for console gaming, haha. Next week I'll pull in some PC gaming news, since that's where most shit seems to be happening.

Also, GamesCom, or the E3 of Europe, is in a few days. There'll be a whole section dedicated to that.
