[Gamasutra rounds up the week's biggest news for the major console and portable digital delivery services, this time highlighting news about Bejeweled 3 and Pinball FX 2.] It's a bit of a slow week, as we're still in post-E3 mode, but some interesting tidbits have popped up this week. Highlights include a postmortem by Xbox Indies developer Radiangames, Bejeweled 3 coming to consoles, and the developer for the upcoming Minecraft port revealed. Postmortem: Radiangames' Monthly Xbox Live Indie Games Series (XBLIG) Radiangames released seven titles on the Xbox Live Indie service last year, all to high acclaim but lower-than-hoped-for sales. One-man developer Luke Schneider took a look back at his experience and wrote a postmortem for Gamasutra. A highly recommended read. Bejeweled 3 Coming To Consoles (XBLA, PSN) Bejeweled is once again coming to consoles, this time with all the bells and whistles. Platformance Sequel Brings Many More Deaths to XBLIG (XBLIG) The super difficult title Platformance gets itself an Indiana Jones styled sequel, now available on the Xbox Indie Games channel. XBL Indie Sum Fighter Blends Math, Tetris Attack (XBLIG) A new take on the falling blocks puzzle genre comes to the Xbox indie Games channel. The 2D Adventures of Rotating Octopus Now On PSN (PSP Minis) Ex-Q Games developer Rhodri Broadbent released his new game, and it gets to the point pretty quickly. Got a 3DS? You Need Donkey Kong! (3DS) The 3DS Virtual Console is in full swing, and this might be the game to check out. Captain America to Star in New Marvel Pinball Table (XBLA / PSN) Zen Studios expands even more on its Pinball library with additional Marvel tables. UK Developer 4J Studios Working On Minecraft XBLA (XBLA) The people behind bringing Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie to Xbox Live Arcade are behind the port of Minecraft for Xbox 360.
