Retail Radar: PSP goes over the Rainbow Six Vegas, gets Rocky 6

Online sites suggest delays, details, release dates, and the first Xbox 360 game to carry a suggested retail price under $20.

53 Comments

The Retail Radar picked up on a listing for an Electronic Arts retro compilation earlier today, but there are a few more incoming bogies to mention, with plenty of activity on the PlayStation Portable front and some news for owners of other systems, as well.

First off, GameStop has a couple new listings for previously unheard of versions of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas. Only the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game have been announced officially, but it looks like Ubisoft hasn't forgotten the current-gen consoles or portable gamers just yet, as GameStop is also soliciting preorders for PSP and PlayStation 2 editions of the game.

Product pages have also sprung up on GameStop for a couple more unannounced PSP games. Later this year, the retailer expects to receive shipments of M.A.C.H. from Vivendi Games and Rocky 6 from Ubisoft. There's very little information on the site about either M.A.C.H. (which shares the name of an obscure Commodore 64 action game) or Rocky 6 (presumably based on the upcoming sequel to the big-screen boxing franchise).

In other PSP blips, Namco Bandai's Warhammer WarCry card-battling game apparently has a subtitle now, as GameStop is calling it "Warhammer WaCry [sic]: Battle for Atluma." According to the product page, the game will feature more than 450 cards to collect, wireless multiplayer, the ability to build a custom deck from more than 90 different units, and a thorough tutorial mode.

Also, GameStop isn't expecting the PSP to see Gran Turismo arrive on the portable until 2007. The game's last official release projection date was simply 2006, although that was only announced for Japan. In 2004, Gran Turismo 4 Mobile was among the first wave of games announced for the portable, but it hasn't caused much of a stir since, being noticeably absent from the last two Electronic Entertainment Expos.

There's another possible delay hinted at on the retailer's site in the form of a January 2007 release date for the PS2 role-playing game Rogue Galaxy. It will also be 2007 before the site expects to receive shipments of the 256MB Xbox 360 memory card (March 1, $59.99).

Finally, in good news that you won't have to wait to take advantage of, it appears that Ridge Racer 6 has become the first Xbox 360 game to hit a suggested retail price of $19.99. Pretty much every major online retailer is now offering the game brand new for a third of its original $59.99 tag.

Please note, while retailer listings frequently jump the gun on publishers' product announcements, they should not be taken as final confirmation of a game's existence, nor should the absence of a listing be considered as proof that a game isn't coming to a given platform.

Riiiiiidge Raceeeer! :lol: Ubi said current-gen sucks (G.R.A.W.) so they are ditching Xbox and PS-2 versions of the game. Now they are going for a PS-2 one! Greeeedy

Rainbow for the psp..... now that's a surprise if it controls like Socom or Syphon Filter and have goon graphic it maybe a hot release. Why do fanboys hate the PSP so much, having more that one hand-held in the market is a plus. The PSP is really starting to get a better line-up of games (Tekken is awesome) and there are some solid shooters, Socom and Syphon Filter are awesome and proved the psp can do shooters Rainbow will be a welcome addition.

Socom worked really well, other than that there has only been 1 FPS on the PSP. And anyone saying that the PSP is "Lackluster" try Tekken and shut up.Nothing on the DS can't touch that kind of portable gaming. Best game I've ever played on a handheld. Next to Socom.

I have gone to myself in my head that the PSP doesn't exist. I know i've bought one but it so lackluster. It justs isn't fun anymore. It something I don't want to support. And in reality, the DS is actually kicking its ass. Everywhere. Nobody ever says hey did you play that one game on the PSP, you got to get it. No, people say, man, that brain age kicks ass. I bow to Nintendo for their intellectual superiority in front of the 200ft Golden Mario statue.

"Ridge Racer" is awesome, since the physics don't exist, there's no damage modeling, the environments scroll by at blistering granny-stroll speeds, and you'd have better control over sliding an empty cardboard box around on ice. Oh wait, that means it sucks. My bad.

Ubisoft will hopefully learn from GRAW for the Xbox and make ranbow 6 vegas for the ps2 and psp a worth while buy.

Just think you can get (3) 8 mb ps2 memory cards for $75 8 x 3 = 24 mb For consoles 256 for $60 is good. Please don't compare console parts to PC parts every again. Consoles are sold at a loss PC's are not. They have to make the money from somewhere. Damn Sony sheep think. Sony has been killing us with memory cards for 10 years. Thank god the blu-ray was used in the PS3. The slow read speeds forced Sony to make the HDD standard. If not the Memory stick duos would have been hard on my wallet.

256MB Memory card for the 360? For $59.99? And they say memory sticks for PSP are expensive. You can get a 2GB memory sticks for $59.99, and a 256MB for under $20. You just need to know where to find them :P

I would've got ridge racer 6 awhile back, but xbox live costs 50$ a year. Ridge racer 7 is 6 but with more, and also free online play. Meaning the 40$ difference could be worth it. Now rocky 6 probably will be renamed, as the new movie in december is called "Rocky Balboa". Good thing to know next-gen games are getting lower in prices though.
