[Every week, Gamasutra sister console digital download site GamerBytes' editor Ryan Langley will be summing up the top console digital download news tidbits from the past 7 days, including brand new game announcements and scoops through the world of Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and WiiWare.]
No new Xbox Live Arcade releases this week, no PlayStation Network releases last week, and a variety of quality for WiiWare worldwide makes for an odd selection of titles.
I can't blame them, though - with Gears of War 2, Mirrors Edge, Fallout 3, Call of Duty: World At War, Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
and more games that have come out in this past week, who really would release a new game now?
