'Crash!'. Sound familiar? That is the sound of the western world's economy falling to the hard, cold floor. The economic crisis is the spawn of capitalistic greed, and this worldwide issue may hit home to gaming as well. Unlikely, but many of our consumer needs and wants maybe be narrowed, which may have slight effects on sales of home entertainment. But don't listen to me. I failed economics.
I guess gravity will get the best of them eventually...
In more of a 'rainbow and butterfly' approach to the gaming news, many new titles are soon to be released or have already done so. Australia will be seeing Little Big Planet for the PS3 on the 7th of November, Gears of War 2 for the Xbox360 on the 11 of the 11th, World of Warcraft: The Wrath of the Lich King for PC on the 13 of November, and many more. It will be a fruitful Christmas for the industry.
We have already been joined by Fable II for the Xbox360 which will be reviewed here in a few days time. Along the new gems on the market, is Saints Row 2 for the Xbox360, Farcry 2 on PS3, Xbox360 and PC, Star Wars: Force Unleashed on nearly every platform.
Later next month, I will be visiting the iDEF eGames expo, held in the Melbourne Exhibition Building from the 14th-16th of November. I will be bringing you the action and news from the show so stay tuned.
