    First up the XBLA releases

    Burnout_Crash_BETA_iNTERNAL_XBLA_XBOX360-XBLAplus Burnout seems to be going for the micro machines/GTA approach to life which could be very interesting (not that youtube comments seem to agree with that statement).
    A side scrolling action platformer that seems to be doing fairly well for itself.

    Other than The Gunstringer and Dunamis 15 (a Japanese adventure game) it is set to be a fairly slow week presumably as nothing much wants to launch against a new gears of war game (although things can always appear beforehand).

    Region locking unknown but The_History_Channel-Great_Battles-Medieval_PAL_XBOX360-RRoD dropped about this time last year.

    This version seemingly dropped back in May but What few reviews are out there are negative but on the flip side what user reviews are out there are quite positive.
