With the U.S. Open in full swing in Flushing, New York—we can practically hear the grunts all the way in Midtown Manhattan—2K Sports has announced that Top Spin 4 will be in stores early next year for the 360, PS3, and Wii. Bonus alert: If you pre-order the game from your local GameStop, 2K will also throw in a virtual version of Andre Agassi as a playable character. Which is really sweet.More »

In case you've been living underneath a rock (or maybe Flozell Adams) the new Madden, a.k.a. Madden NFL '11, is in stores today. That officially makes today, August 10th 2010, a holiday.
All together now: WOO!!!
No matter what you call it--Maddensgiving, Maddenoween, or maybe Maddentines Day--this is a cause for celebration. So how to celebrate? Just because the banks are open, and you still have to go to school or camp or your summer job, doesn't mean you can't recognize the holiday. Here are some suggestions to get you in the spirit of things.More »
The Cages: Pro Style Batting Practice is a great, unique game. Instead of a regular baseball game, where there are just straight exhibitions, this game focuses on the fundamentals of hitting. It's also compatible with Wii Motion Plus, which means no more delayed swings...More »
