EU News Wrap, September 23 – What happened today
The European week draws to a close with a relatively busy news day punctuated by tons of Forza 4 information, L.A. Noire Complete leaks, unique takes on Tetris and a hilarious trailer for a Kinect swimming game. As you do.
Johnny will be back to guide you through a hailstorm of news as we hurtle into the busy AAA release season next week. Steph’s here now to tackle anything that dares arise between now and the US weekend officially starting, too.
Don’t forget to check out today’s shorts for some of the smaller news you might have missed.
