So, here's a funny story about my experience reviewing Rayman Origins. Sometimes when we receive a game for review, it's not exactly the final code, but a build intended to run on a version of the console hardware which isn't the standard one sitting in your home. This can occasionally cause some hiccups in the process, as last minute bugs might need to be worked out, some otherwise completely unexpected (and likely non-standard) issue crops up that the consumer who buys the game on launch day will never experience.

Sony has revealed plans to allow consumers to transfer their old UMD-based PSP games to the PlayStation Vita, which uses an entirely new format, but it's not free. The "UMD Passport" will allow players to transfer their old games at a discounted rate, ranging from $7 to $13 per game. (Jim Sterling)
Following the closed beta, players will have another opportunity to try Gotham City Impostors before it releases on January 10, 2012 for PC, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade. (Jordan Devore)
Bethesda had previously commented that the first two downloadable content packs for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim would be making an appearance on Xbox 360 first, as tends to be the case for certain games. Microsoft has reminded us that this 30-day exclusivity is still very much the case. (Jordan Devore)
