Life without balance is meaningless. So while we feel PSP owners' frustration at witnessing this week's expected major release, Me & My Katamari, pushed back another seven days, it's undeniably satisfying to see this Friday's healthy DS release list, with Pokemon Link and Pac-Man World 3 bravely going up against the big guns of Metroid Prime: Hunters.

Players of the latter may be too engrossed to notice, but if this week it's all DS, next Friday is entirely devoted to PSP. The eagerly awaited Katamari shares the day with the equally anticipated Monster Hunter, while Puyo Pop Fever looks to continue its franchise's worryingly addictive run.

Finally, redressing the multimedia balance by reminding PSP players their machine can do more than just gaming will be Konami's intriguing digital comic book, Silent Hill Experience.

As ever, you can always check out our Release Calendar in the menu bar above to see what's coming out when.
