Last week will always belong to Halo 3, which launched in the US and Europe to astonishing success. It wasn't all plain sailing, however, as Xbox Live crashed under the enormous pressure and complaints starting flooding in about scratched and unreadable discs.
Last weeks's other big news was Activision coming out of the blue to acquire Project Gotham Racing 4 developer Bizarre Creations. Everyone got a bit worried at losing one of our favourite racing games, but Microsoft came out and insisted the series would continue.
Ubisoft had a surprise of its own up its sleeve, as it announced Tom Clancy's Air Combat for PC, PS3 and 360 - a futuristic sort of Top Gun, Eurogamer are led to believe.
