New Releases This Week for PS3 (3.28.11)

Another strong week for new games on the PS3, especially for racing fans with three new racing games arriving in stores in the shape of: NASCAR 2011, Shift 2, and MotoGP. Also out in stores this week are wrestling game WWE All Stars, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12, and the hack and slash game Dynasty Warriors 7.

New games on the PlayStation Network include a port of the original Sonic the Hedgehog, the second part of the excellent Back to the Future: The Game, and the download re-release of the full game of Split/Second.

Also out this week on PSN is Free Realms, which is an unusual RPG MMO aimed at younger players. Set in a fantasy themed world, the game is free to play but requires you to buy items with real money to progress to the higher levels.  

Game of the Week goes to Shift 2: Unleashed. With games like GT5, the sim racing genre can sometimes seem a little sterile to the casual audience. Shift 2 finds a way of making real-world inspired racing feel fresh, intense, and surprisingly addictive.
