[Every week, Gamasutra rounds up the titles released for the major console and portable digital delivery services, as compiled by editor Ryan Langley over at sister site GamerBytes.] It's time to look at the digital-first titles debuting this week across both North America and Europe on the major console digital systems, including the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade service, the PlayStation Network for PS3 and PSP titles, as well as Nintendo's WiiWare and DSiWare services. Notable releases this week include Section 8: Prejudice on Xbox Live Arcade, The Fancy Pants Adventures for both XBLA and PlayStation Network and a port of the classic Mega Man X for DSiWare. Xbox Live Arcade (Worldwide) Some quality gaming out this week -- Section 8: Prejudice is now available for 1200MSP, sitting at a whopping 1.78GB. This game claims to be pretty full of content for your money's worth, and it's already getting some very nice reviews. The other title is Fancy Pants Adventures, a fantastic stick man adventure based on the super popular Flash game, which you can grab for 800MSP. For DLC, there is a new table available for Pinball FX 2 -- Mars. Not entirely new -- it was made for Zen Pinball back in July 2010, but still, a new table is always welcome!

Yes, it's really been over 5 years and only just now we're getting Mega Man X. Now available on your Virtual Console for 800 Points. Don't keep your hopes up for the rest of the series though -- special chips in the carts and all that. Also available on DSiWare this week is DoDoGo!

An interesting new title for the Virtual Console this week -- Adventure Island II. Despite 4 NES titles, only now we're getting the second one. You can grab it for 500 Points. One new WiiWare title as well -- Where's Wally? Fantastic Journey 2, which I imagine is just a few additional maps for 500 Points. And on the DSi, there's two new educational titles out this week -- Successfully Learning English: Year 2 for 500 Points, and Hellokids - Vol. 1: Coloring and Painting for 200 Points.
