This week’s biggest release is the sequel to a popular first person war shooter, but it’s also a big week for baseball fans. Here’s a look at some of the week’s most interesting new video game releases.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
The newest installment in the Battlefield series picks up after the original Bad Company to bring you more wartime mayhem on foot or in vehicles, with plenty of destructible and open environments.

One of two new baseball games hitting shelves this week, 2K10 distinguishes itself with a high profile contest. 2K Sports is offering a cool million dollars to the first player to pitch a perfect game on the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.
