Check it out below and don't forget the list of all the new games that drop this week for every game system from [kwlink]Nintendo DS[/kwlink] to [kwlink]Xbox 360[/kwlink], [kwlink]Wii[/kwlink], [kwlink]PS3[/kwlink], [kwlink]PSP[/kwlink] and even for your PC.

Marvel Ultimate Battles Card Game Announced!

Upper Deck, the folks who make the [kwlink]Yu-Gi-Oh![/kwlink], [kwlink]World of Warcraft[/kwlink] and [kwlink]Vs. System[/kwlink] card games have a new one coming - Marvel Ultimate Battles! It lets you play cards as your favorite superheroes, like [kwlink]Iron Man[/kwlink], [kwlink]Spider-Man[/kwlink], [kwlink]The Hulk[/kwlink], Captain America and more. You'll be able to battle with your [kwlink]friends[/kwlink] with a fast, easy to learn game! It drops in April 2008 with Iron Man and The Hulk 48-card [kwlink]Starter Decks[/kwlink] or nine-card Booster Packs.

Operation Smile Charity

Hasbro's releasing the new Operation Rescue Kit board game on its 25th anniversary and they're also doing a special charity drive to help the Operation Smile kids medical charity! They have special events all over [kwlink]North America[/kwlink] where you can get your picture taken with [kwlink]celebrities[/kwlink]. But, you can also help right now. Just head over to www.operation.com and click on the Oxygen Pump Button to get Hasbro to donate $0.25 more to the charity.

Sony's Ripping You Off With the PS3

Remember how the new, cheaper [kwlink]PS3 doesn't play PS2 games?[/kwlink] Well, it could, it just needs Sony to add a program to it. And it's a program they already have so it would be super easy. But they won't. Why not? Because they want you to buy [kwlink]PS3 games[/kwlink] and they figure if they make it so you can't play [kwlink]PS2 games[/kwlink], you will. They're doing it on purpose. That sucks.
