Worldwide releases: Friday, May 2

By Patrick Garratt, Thursday, 1 May 2008 10:47 GMT

What can you possibly say about this week? The chances are you’ve already bought GTA IV, from the look of day one sales figures.

However, believe it or not, there are other games out on Friday, and let’s be fair to our Japanese brothers as they don’t get GTA until “this year”. What on earth are they going to do? Well, nothing it seems, as the pickings are so slim in Japan this week it’s almost as though GTA IV was released over there.

Nintendo isn’t afraid of the GTA-juggernaut, and is releasing Mario Kart Wii in the US. Iron Man also hits every console imaginable.

DS has the usual slew of games with exclamation marks in the title all aimed at trying to improve yourself, and PSP has a very quiet week indeed.

Apart from that, GTA IV is now out in the US and Europe, and you’re all probably too busy playing it to care about anything else.
