The week ends with leaked iPad launch titles. I’m not sure how all this stuff keeps getting leaked unless employees are going out of their way to leak the info but, leaked info equals headlines for the media and you can check out what launch titles are coming to the iPad, along with news regarding the newly announced Nintendo 3DS. And yes, Nintendo has another handheld on the way despite a new version of the DS heading to North America. Also, after a whole lot of media controversy and talk, TimeGate Studios’ first-person, burn-in shooter that originally debuted for the Xbox 360 and PC last year has arrived for the PlayStation 3 this year.
