Thor Screen 1

The God of Thunder makes a visit both to the movie theater and every major console this week in his movie tie-in game, Thor: God of Thunder. The PS3 gets another great retail release for fans awaiting MotorStorm: Apocalypse. Not much in the way for online releases for the PS3 though, which is just as well considering that we’re not even sure when exactly we’ll be back on the network. When it does come back though, guess you’ll be busy picking up games that came out last week! Things look bright for 360 owners though with the 360 exclusive Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury will be enough to make PS3 owners jealous regardless of PSN connectivity.
