Today, the list expands even further, and will continue to expand more tomorrow. So here is today's Video Game Bits.

The game was designed from the ground up for both systems, and features 32-person online play for both Wii and PSP, support for the Wii Zapper and a unique Arcade Mode that plays like a rail-shooter, to simplify gameplay. The game begins on June 6, 1944 and players step into the boots of OSS Operative John Berg to infiltrate Normandy from behind enemy lines. Both versions of the game will have an all new single player campaign as well as online mutliplayer battles, where players can jump into any battle at any time against anyone.
