Xbox LIVE Newsbeat: September 6th - 19th

This fortnight it's all about Crimson Alliance, BloodRayne and a little gem we checked out at Gamescom from Digital Reality, called SkyDrift. You can read our preview of it here. FIFA fans should get ready for this year's demo, out on September 13th, and you'll be able to experience the buzzword-heavy new features for yourselves. We'll be very eager to hear what you make of them, consider our own hopes and reservations post-convention season.

NB. All prices are in Microsoft Points.

You forgot to link to the Dealspawn preview of SkyDrift.

Also I would appreciate a "source" link - even though I know that the content of this article is taken straight from the article at majornelson.com, published yesterday :p
