As the last full week of new releases for the year, there’s very few options to open your wallet over. If you’ve been waiting to get the limited edition for Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- and didn’t want to concede and get just the standard edition, the wait is nearly over. Resogun makes its debut on Sony’s other consoles, bringing the same colorful action to the systems but with a reduced 30FPS framerate. Thankfully, Resogun will be cross buy, so if you already own the PS4 version, the other iterations are already in your account.
