[Every week, Gamasutra rounds up the titles released for the major console and portable digital delivery services, as compiled by console digital editor Ryan Langley, including the latest XBLA and PSN games.]
No Nintendo games this week? Not quite. Nintendo has recently moved its store updates to Thursday afternoons, and since we update earlier, it makes this week look a little under-developed -- but don't worry, we'll have everything sorted starting next week.
This week we see PlayStation Network come back into full swing with a slew of new titles and the Xbox Live Arcade return after a two week hiatus. Magic The Gathering 2012
is this week's super title, appearing on all platforms and regions, something that's more difficult than it should be.
Xbox Live Arcade
After a two-week hiatus we're back in full swing on box Live Arcade with two new releases. The first being Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012
, which takes last year's hit and adds more options, customizable decks, and the latest rule updates from the card game, all for 800MSP ($10).
The second title is Adventures of Shuggy
, a cute little puzzle platformer where you twist the world to your will, also for 800MSP ($10).
PlayStation Network (North America)
A big week for the PlayStation Network, and almost entirely new releases -- a first since the return of the storefront.
First we have Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012
, which, again, takes last year's hit and adds more options, customizable decks, and the latest rule updates from the card game, priced at $9.99.
Another big title this week is Outland
, finally arriving in the US PSN store, and now available for $9.99.
Also an exclusive game this week -- Akimi Village
, NinjaBee's first PSN title for what is essentially a revision of its XBLA Keflings
titles, also available for $9.99.
Other releases this week include digital versions of Greg Hastings Paintball 2
for $19.99 and Midnight Club Los Angeles: Complete Edition
Lastly, three new PSP Minis titles -- Run Ghost Run
($2.99), Babel: The King Of The Blocks
($2.99) and The 2D Adventures Of Rotating Octopus Character
PlayStation Network (Europe)
This week's top PlayStation Network title is Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012
for £7.19/€8.99. It's nice to see it come out everywhere at once, unlike the previous revision.
Also available on PSN this week is the downloadable version of Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Edition
for £19.99/€24.99, and Back to the Future: Episode 3
for those with the season pass.
On the PlayStation Minis front, we've got a few good titles -- Jellycar 2

(£1.74/€1.99), Run Ghost Run
(£2.39/€2.99), Best Of Solitaire
(£4.99/€6.19) and Babel, The King Of The Blocks
And last, but not least, is a new PSOne classic -- the original Tekken
