Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition (PS3)

With improved graphics and an extensive array of exclusive bonus content, the Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition takes full advantage of the PS3's Blu-ray disc capacity in addition to delivering the Command & Conquer franchise's signature fast, fluid and fun RTSgameplay.

"It was really important to us to make sure Red Alert 3 on the PS3 took full advantage of everything the system has to offer," said David Seeholzer, Development Director at EA Los Angeles. "The additional time we've had allowed us to improve the PS3 version, with big performance increases and better visual fidelity. The Blu-ray disc's storage capacity also gave us an opportunity to add a tremendous amount of bonus content, some of which is entirely exclusive for PS3 owners, making the Ultimate Edition the ultimate value."

The Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition features EA Los Angeles' console RTS control system, the CommandStick 2.0 interface, bringing the ease and efficiency of RTS controls on the PC to the PS3. The Command & Conquer Red Alert 3:Ultimate Edition is also packed full of bonus content, including exciting new multiplayer maps, behind the scenes videos and trailers, Bloopers & Outtakes, the official Red Alert 3 soundtrack, in-depth unit profiles, PS3 exclusive episodes of Command School and BattleCast PrimeTime and more!

Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 shipped last fall and was recently named Best Strategy Game of the Year by the Academy of Arts and Interactive Sciences. The game introduces cooperative campaigns and an unprecedented emphasis on naval warfare to the RTS genre, while also featuring the Red Alert series' trademark humor and the Command & Conquer franchise's trademark live-action movie sequences, starring one of the largest and most talented ensemble casts in the history of video games, including (in alphabetical order) Gemma Atkinson, Gina Carano, Randy Couture, Tim Curry, Kelly Hu, Jenny McCarthy, Jonathan Pryce, Autumn Reeser, J.K. Simmons, Peter Stormare and George Takei.

The Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition for the PS3 has been rated 'T' for Teen by the ESRB and '16+' by PEGI.
