World Championship Poker 2: Featuring Howard Lederer - PlayStation®2 and Xbox®
World Championship Poker 2: Featuring Howard Lederer, the follow up to one of the best selling titles for the first half of 2005, features 7 of the world's top poker pros including Howard Lederer, Greg Raymer, Paul Darden, Robert Williamson III, Clonie Gowen, Amir Vahidi, Annie Duke, and Matt Savage. Additionally, WCP2 has a much more detailed one player game, where you now have to work their way up the ranks, starting in your mom's basement. Once you start winning and accumulating money, you can spend your winnings on increasingly better pads, and furnishings. Hit a losing streak, and you may have to hock your stuff to stay in the game.
Exclusive to the PlayStation 2 version of World Championship Poker 2 is support for the EyeToyTM USB Camera (for PlayStation®2), which allows online opponents to see each other as they play, in addition to supporting text chat. The Xbox version of the game supports Xbox Live including Scoreboards, Voice/Chat and Live Aware.

The Bible Game - PlayStation®2 and Game Boy® Advance
The first titles of their kind on current console systems, both games combine wholesome family fun with a engaging challenge of Biblical knowledge. The Bible Game for PlayStation 2 casts players as contestants on a game show with fast-paced, "beat the buzzer" action and a comical off-screen announcer as emcee. 20 mini- and micro-games with 1,500 questions reinforce inspirational Old Testament teachings such as Jonah and the Whale, David and Goliath, The Tower of Babel, and many more. Multiplayer mode for up to 4 players encourages family members of all ages to play together, and provides a fun alternative for family game nights.
The Bible Game for Game Boy Advance combines action/adventure play style with trivia challenges. In their quest to protect the Armor of God, players may choose to play as either Billy or Jenny across seven levels including forest, snowy tundra, desert, and tropical island environments. Along the way they must answer questions from both the Old and New Testaments. Either the New International Version or King James translation may be selected, and three levels of difficulty keep the game accessible for all ages.
Scheduled for release in October 2005, The Bible Game will be available for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and GameBoy® Advance handheld system for an MSRP of $19.99.
