PS Vita, Deus Ex and a whole lot of Skyrim.
This week on IncGamers at times seemed dominated by news, features and articles regarding a certain fantasy RPG from the guys at Bethesda – Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim getting the preview, interview, art and news breakdowns.
For much of the week, Skyrim articles held the top five positions in our ‘Most Read Articles’ chart – so don’t pretend you’re not interested.

It wasn’t all Skyrim, though. Sony announced the official release date for upcoming handheld PS Vita in the West, EA revealed that Fifa 12 is outselling PES 2012 by a massive 25-to-1 and Naughty Dog chatted to us about the Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune movie that’s due 2013. If some sources are to be believed, 2013 is also the year when Microsoft will announced the successor to the Xbox 360. Links to all of this and more can be found below.
Speaking of Naughty Dog… you’ll want to return to IncGamers tomorrow (Monday 24 Oct) at 5pm GMT/Noon EST to catch our review of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

The week’s big feature articles includes a look back at 10 years of Halo concept art and a comparison between the original SD images of Devil May Cry and the high-res pictures of the forthcoming HD re-release. We’re rather arty here, though we say so ourselves.
We’ve also got reviews for Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s ‘Missing Link’ DLC, downloadable title Okabu and the strategy game behemoth that is Football Manager 2012.
Oh, and we also put our neck on the line with predictions as to the Christmas top 10 videogame chart.
