This US started off the year really slow, but eventually picked up. After the PSPgo was announced it looked like Sony finally decided to release some games. Japan was the juggernaut it always is for Game Archives, almost 100 titles released. I feel really bad for our friends in the EU, mostly Disney games. Although my favorite PSone game of all time, Future Cop: L.A.P.D., was released there and not in the US :(.

If you are wondering about PC Engines games coming to the US, fear not! I recently asked that exact question to Hudson Entertainment and was met with the following response:

There are plans to bring them here. I cannot say how many or which ones however.

Sounds like good news to me!
