Wipeout: The Game (NDS/Wii)

Based upon the Endemol USA produced hit ABC TV show, Wipeout, Wipeout: The Game pits friends and family against each other in the world’s largest, messiest, and most hilarious obstacle course out there today. 

“When developing the game our goal was to capture all the elements that people love about the hilarious reality ABC show, and to above all make it fun,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “So far, we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from fans, who clearly can’t wait to step up to the challenge of the obstacle course.”

Wipeout: The Game is loaded with the elements that have made the TV show a smash hit. From the contestant demolishing Dreadmill to the fan-favorite Big Balls, all of Wipeout’s classic obstacles make an appearance in the game. Furthering the complete Wipeout experience that fans have become accustomed to is the inclusion of witty commentary provided by the show’s hosts John Anderson, John Henson and co-host Jill Wagner.

In Wipeout: The Game, up to four players can battle against each other in the game’s many challenges. As they compete for the ultimate win, players will get down and dirty with their opponents as they hurl objects and insults with the game’s signature Trash Talk Generator.

Wipeout: The Game, rated E for Everyone, is available now for a suggested price of $29.99.

Singularity (PS3/X360/PC) - Europe Only

Singularity seamlessly combines a heart-racing, story-driven experience with epic sci-fi combat and gameplay,” said Brian Raffel, studio director, Raven Software.  “This new title reflects our heartfelt passion to bring an all-new, fresh experience to the first person action community.  We can’t wait to take the action online!”

 Thrust onto the mysterious Russian island base of Katorga-12, filled with Cold War secrets that threaten time itself, players must fight their way through an ever-shifting environment, haunted by time-ravaged creatures and mysteries. Armed with an arsenal of high-powered weapons and the Time Manipulation Device, players must contend with sudden time waves that hurl them back and forth between 1955 and the present day. In addition to a story-driven narrative, Singularity offers players a unique multi-player experience, where Russian Special Forces with individual powers take on a team of creatures from another time including the powerful Radion, the gravity-defying Phase Tick and the time-altering Zek.

Demon’s Souls (PS3) - Europe Only

Demon’s Souls is available as an exclusive European limited edition retail pack containing the game, soundtrack CD, a new artbook and a brand new strategy guide.

The exclusive new strategy guide has been written by two passionate North American fans of the game in collaboration with the entire fan community, offering European fans a unique and exciting insight into the innermost workings of the game universe.

Demon's Souls is a darkly beautiful and uniquely captivating RPG experience that takes players on an unforgiving journey into the kingdom of Boletaria, a blighted fantasy universe inspired by medieval Europe. The revolutionary online connectivity delivers a seamless adventure for an enhanced single player experience or an exhilarating multiplayer game. Work together to overthrow awe-inspiring bosses, or alternatively, force your way into the games of other skilled players, challenging them to deadly PvP battles.

Along your journey you can leave hints and clues for those who will come after you, and whether intentionally or through your own inadvertent demise, bloodstains you leave behind will let your successors view a replay of your death, giving them clues to help them avoid your unpleasant fate. Unprecedented in its depth and subtlety, peerless in its relentlessly challenging gameplay, Demon's Souls is the ultimate action RPG.

Featuring the game text-localised in five European languages, a brand new hardback artbook filled with mesmerizing concept and game art images, a new strategy guide written by the fans, plus the deeply atmospheric original soundtrack of the game on CD, the limited edition retail pack of Demon’s Souls is available now across the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions, only for PS3.
