[Every week, Gamasutra sister weblog GamerBytes' editor Ryan Langley will be summing up the top console digital download news tidbits from the past 7 days, including brand new game announcements and scoops through the world of Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and WiiWare.]

A big week for WiiWare this week, a ton of new games have been announced for the service, and most of them look to be bringing some pretty strong content. Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands, Boingz and Cave Story -- 2D platform / puzzle titles that I can really get into.

The people behind the hit XBLA title Poker Smash are hard at work on a new title, which hasn't got a name yet. It will involve a big world to explore, fast-paced melee and ranged combat, loot, RPG elements, and treasure hunting. They've got a new blog and are being very open with sharing every little thing they're doing. Fascinating stuff.
