I'm getting Awesomenauts and Velocity as part of Playstation Plus, and I'll probably pick up Fable Heroes if it gets good reviews.

360:
Sniper Elite V2 - unless reviews steer me away, but I loved the demo
Fable Heroes (XBLA) probable, but I'll wait for reviews

Sadly, it looks like Awesomenauts (XBLA) may not come out after all, as the company just went bankrupt, literally just before release!  This was the one I was looking most forward to this week.

Word on the streets is Awesomenauts may not be coming out this week.

http://www.shacknews.com/article/73571/awesomenauts-publisher-files-for-insolvency-game-future-uncertain

Edit - Update - Sony has tweeted that Awesomenauts will launch tomorrow as planned on the PlayStation Network, and will still be free for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

No word on the XBox version yet.

It's got only 63.7% on GameRankings, and most of the reviews seem to feel it's pretty meh.

I've watched the entire Quick Look and the only redeeming feature of the Quick Look is that I like the Giant Bomb guys.

Maybe Sniper Elite V2 for the 360. I just played the demo and liked it, but I'll have to wait to see the early reviews and opinions.

By the way, the Kalypo Port Royale 3 website shows a Sept 4, 2012 US release date for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. However, it will be available on Steam on May 4th and the official Kalypso moderator on their forum says that while this is the German PC retail release, the Steam version will have an English language option. So you will be able to play the game on Steam starting in four days if you wish.

Probably Sniper Elite. I've got a coupon for half off and a little trade credit.

May grab a used copy of IL-2 as well. Hankering for some more WWII plane shooting.

Tempted by Sniper Elite v2. I liked the demo fine, and it seems like a good change of pace. Will probably wait for a review or two though, to make sure that the level design holds up throughout.

Looks like Sniper Elite V2 has been pushed back a week, at least.

GS is showing May 8 now.

Amazon has it shipping in 1 - 4 weeks.

That is interesting, as the game wasn't due until tomorrow, apparently.

It could be a preorder only situation or a limited print run, I suppose, but this seems to be happening all over.
