Wild Arms XF, Final Fantasy CC: Ring of Fates, and Lost Empire: Immortals, are all interesting.  But, I know I'm getting Vegas next week, and I'm still working on various things for the DS and PSP... sooo... not sure if I'll actually get anything this week.

360:
Condemned 2: Bloodshot

Wii:
House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return

DS:
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates

The reviews for CC have been excellent.  Condemned 2 has already seen some decent ones, too, in the UK.  House of the Dead will be just guilty fun.

FF:  CC is a definite, and I'll wait for reviews on Wild Arms XF.  I'm not a big fan of the WA setting, so I'll need to see if the gameplay is solid.  Also not sure if I have the time for yet another SRPG.

Condemned 2 on the 360 will be an eventual purchase if I ever get around to finishing the first one, but other than that I picked up Bully and SSB for the Wii last week so I'm good for now.

The Mass Effect DLC, Bring Down the Sky, was released today for 400 points.  I'm tempted, but I'll probably wait for impressions first given my backlog of other stuff.

Ooh PES 2008!  That should keep me busy until Vegas 2 comes out.

I really liked the first Condemned but I think I will wait for reviews.  I don't usually play games like this but it was one of the few titles available around 360 launch so I ended up trying it.

Ugh, awhile ago I'd be super excited for Pro Evo.  But Konami has absolutely ruined the franchise the past couple of years, and reports from our brethren across the pond is that 2008 is god-awful.  And apparently online play is plagued with an indecent amount of lag.  That makes me a sad panda.

I may give Wild ARMs XF a shot, since I'm ready for an awesome SRPG and the vibe at NeoGAF is quite positive.

Nothing! Just spent $800+ on a Wii fun pack for the family yesterday morning (wiiiiii!). However, these titles are certainly on my rental list and could generate a purchase if they're solid plays:

PSP:
Pro Evolution Soccer 2008
Wild ARMs XF

360:
Pro Evolution Soccer 2008

DS:
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates
Nanostray 2

And grabbed via the front page, here's this week's VC titles:

Quote
DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's DokiDoki Adventure (Super NES®, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone – Alcohol Reference and Comic Mischief, 900 Wii Points): This is an action game where an energetic boy named Milon sets off on a great adventure in a cute fairy-tale world. Piccolo is a village in the country of Fantasia. One day, they hear from the fairy Alis that songs and music have disappeared from the forest. Suddenly, the wizard Amon appears, grabs Alis and vanishes with her. The brave Milon must now go on a journey to rescue his kidnapped friend, with his bubble shooter as his only weapon. Along the way, he'll need to retrieve five legendary instruments and stars by defeating Amon's minions. Get ready to enjoy the fun and comical action of this charming game.

Puyo Puyo 2: Tsuu (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 900 Wii Points): The object of this head-to-head puzzle game is to clear your grid of falling patterns called puyos by forming chains of four or more same-colored puyos in a straight line or one of several geometric patterns. What makes this a challenging two-player contest is the fact that when you clear a chain of puyos from your grid, it drops a random piece of filler onto your opponent's grid. The more puyos you clear, the more you fill your opponent's grid, and if you can clutter up his grid enough to fill it to the top, you've won the game. An intriguing backstory makes this an amusing experience for one or two players.

I thought I've heard of every SNES title ever released, but...WTF is DoReMi Fantasy?

I think it's coming 3CST. I'll probably look into review for FF:CC, but if it looks semi good I'll give in. Pretty interested in house of the dead pack. Loved those arcade games. but that'll probably wait. gonna pick up SSMB.

I've changed my mind about PES after reading reviews and impressions.  This is the first time I won't buy a new PES game.  Sounds like they pulled a FIFA 07 (360).

The PES reviews are a real mixed bag.

IGN UK gave it a 9.2.

Gamespot UK gave it a 6.0.

OXM gave it an 8.8.

I'm not sure what to believe now.

True, and if you actually read the reviews it becomes pretty apparent that there are no new/good features in 08.  The higher scores are mostly because PES is already such a great game to start with.

I'll buy Condemned 2 at some point, but probably after I finish condemned 1, and that's assuming I find a long stretch of time to play it.
