It may not have as much significance down under as it does to our American cousins, but that hasn't stopped EA from bringing Madden NFL 09 to Australia. Updated player rosters aside, Madden NFL 09 now features a new holographic visual training mode, revamped franchise mode, and a new running engine. The Wii version also includes a new five-on-five game arcade mode and Wii Remote-specific play. Madden comes out on the Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, and PSP this Thursday.

SingStar Amped comes onto the scene this week, this time featuring a variety of rock songs from artists like Grinspoon, Spiderbait, and Quiet Riot. SingStar Amped comes out on the 14th and will cost A$99.95 ($88.58) for the game and two microphones, or A$49.95 ($44.26) for just the game.
