Console Releases

Going shopping this weekend? Find out what's what in the run up to the .. Christmas run-up!

Firstly if you're a GameBoy owner, unless the idea of Pokemon Pinball excites you I suggest you stay inside this morning. It's a bit chilly out anyway, and there's nothing in store to keep your fingers warm this week. For Dreamcast and PlayStation owners though, it's another weekend to prepare the wallet for. F1 World Grand Prix 2 DC faces off against Formula 1 2000 PSX, with Dreamcast owners also able to pick up Space Channel 5 and Urban Chaos to boot. PlayStation buyers have the relative luxury of NHL 2001, the only other option being Frogger 2. Even N64 owners can find some sustinance in today's releases with International Superstar Soccer 2000 and Hercules finally seeing the light of day. Once again though we have to look ahead to next week and even the week after before the pre-Christmas (and pre-PlayStation 2) pace picks up properly. Next week should see the release of Rogue Spear and Rainbow Six on the PlayStation and Timestalkers on the Dreamcast, but the subsequent Friday should prove even more encapsulating with titles like Ferrari F355 and MS-R being released.
