New PAL Releases Roundup - 12/06/09

WMP! Grand Slam! Prototype! Etc!

Nintendo's Wii MotionPlus peripheral is finally out and about in shops today, courtesy of Electronic Arts' launch title Grand Slam Tennis, which was reviewed earlier this week. You can also check out our separate MotionPlus hands-on to see how it stacks up in GST and Tiger Woods 10.

Otherwise the big game of the week is Activision's Prototype, also reviewed, which turned out to be less like inFamous than expected, with a much greater emphasis on brawling compared to Sucker Punch's platform-and-shoot combo.

There's also Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings for Wii (review Monday), which includes a copy of legendary PC adventure Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, amazingly. We'd urge caution though, as adventure-lover Kristan isn't too impressed.

Elsewhere, it's a bumper week for digital downloads, thanks to a slew of Megadrive releases on Xbox Live Arcade and PSP downloads on PlayStation Network, although we're struggling to pick anything particularly exciting out of the line-up. VidZone launched too, allowing you to download music videos for free.

  • EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis (Wii - including MotionPlus)
