GTAIV’s second episode for Microsoft was slated for late this year and now we know what it’s called! Sounds interesting to say the least. I’m most fascinated with the $39.99 standalone retail releases. I may pull the trigger on those. Raiden games? I haven’t played one in years and now the Xbox 360 is getting Raiden IV — along with Raiden Fighter Aces, the Xbox 360 is the platform for shoot ’em ups.

How can you let Microsoft take that away from you, Sony?

It may not be the most prestigious genre out there, but it’s still fun!
