New Game Releases This Week October 2006

This week will see the debut of a number of big-name titles in the United States. On the console front, highly anticipated sequels like Final Fantasy XII and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories are expected to move significant units in the coming weeks, while Neverwinter Nights 2 promises to keep PC gamers enthralled for months.

Of particular note is the strength of this week’s PSP lineup. While Sony’s portable console has been somewhat lacking in terms of exclusive, non-ported content recently, titles like Vice City StoriesLumines IIEvery Extend Extra, and Killzone: Liberation should go a long way in providing the PSP the software variety it needs for the upcoming holiday season.
