Traded in inFamous 2 yesterday. Guy tried to sell me on five different games to pre-order, and it became sort of concerning (to me) that I went getting store credit and couldn't think of a game I actually wanted to use it on in the near future. So, a list of upcoming releases:

There's a whole bunch of games listed as "maybe 12/30", I'll pass.
Uncharted and Batman are the two that stick out to me, but they're too close together! I'd probably get the Ratchet & Clank game too if it wasn't right there at the same time, even though multiplayer games tend to be rough for friendless loners. Anything you're looking forward to?
Might as well throw the Gamescom news here, because the only real news is
- they've dropped PS3 to $250 - a non-WiFi version of the PSP will be released in Europe (and maybe elsewhere) for $99 - there's an inFamous 2 new thing coming in Ocotber. I read it as an add-on for people who didn't just sell the game yesterday, but Joystiq thinks it's a PSN game.

The same two that stuck out to you stick out to me. Uncharted and Batman are must buys for me. I'm sure some will be happy with a new Elder Scrolls game, but I couldn't get into Oblivion. If I get COD, it will be on the 360, so that is out. Same with WWE 12. The only other game that I would debate on getting is the third Saints Row game.

I saw an interesting article while preparing the TV column yesterday. Not interesting enough for its own topic, so I hope you don't mind if I tack it on here. One, I always forget that Nintendo is the owner of the Seattle Mariners.
