This week sees slowdown in the volume of game releases in markets across the globe, following last week's launch of the Nintendo DS in North America, alongside a dozen or so large titles. However, a few major pre-Christmas releases are still debuting in each territory. Game releases in the United States: PlayStation 2: Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within, Kuon, Ghost Recon 2
Xbox: Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within, World Championship Poker, GunGriffon: Allied Strike, American Chopper
GameCube: Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within, Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2005
PC: Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within, Chess Fritz 8 Deluxe Edition, D-Day, Armies Of Exigo, Bad Mojo, Galactic Civilizations: Deluxe Edition, Blitzkrieg: Rolling Thunder
Nintendo DS: Mr. Driller Spirit
Game Boy Advance: Metal Slug Advance The U.S. market experienced another sluggish week for game releases overall, topping even last week’s reduced number of software titles. However, a couple of major titles have emerged from the post-Thanksgiving haze, particularly Ubisoft's gorier, more action-packed sequel, Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within and EA's PC RTS Armies Of Exigo. Game releases in Europe: PlayStation 2: Call Of Duty: Finest Hour, Crash 'N' Burn, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3, Duel Masters, Future Tactics: The Uprising, Miami Vice, Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within
Xbox: Atari Anthology, Blinx 2, Call Of Duty: Finest Hour, Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within
GameCube: Call Of Duty: Finest Hour, Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within
PC: London and South East, Miami Vice, Painkiller: Battle Out Of Hell, Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within, Pro Evolution Soccer 4, Sid Meier's Pirates!, Syberia 1 & 2 Collector's Edition
Game Boy Advance: Beyblade G-Revolution, Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls, Monopoly Party, Ms Pacman, Pacman World, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus Similar to the U.S. market, this week also saw the European market somewhat sluggish on game releases, though volume was somewhat up from the American market. Particular highlights include Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within again, as well as GBA re-make Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn Of Souls and Activision's World War II FPS franchise continuation, Call Of Duty: Finest Hour. Game releases in Japan: PlayStation 2: Derby Tsuku 4: Derby Uma o Tsukurou!, NBA Live 2005, Ultraman Fighting Evolution 3, New Jinsei Game, SuperLite 2000 Mezase! Chess Champion, Gold Gashbell!! Gekitou! Saikyou no Mamonotachi, D-A: White, Card Captor Sakura: Sakura-Chan to Asobo!
Game Boy Advance: Power Pro Kun Pocket 7, Need for Speed Underground 2, Cinnamon: Yume no Daibouken, The Urbz: Sims in the City, Sirubani Family Fashion Design Ni Nare!, Kiss x Kiss: Hoshisuzu no Gakuen In a strange twist, Japanese game shipments this week are focused almost entirely on the Game Boy Advance. While the Japanese market was almost as sluggish as the U.S., titles including the native Final Fantasy I & II and imports in the form of The Urbz: Sims in the City and Need For Speed Underground 2 surfaced.
