It's time for this week's Newsround. Obviously it's a Bank Holiday weekend, so there will be no gaming news on Monday, while the competition winners will be announced on Tuesday next week.
So let's round up the rest of today's news then.
Mario expected on Wii U by October
Look whose coming to Wii U this year, Mario? Surprised, No?
According to a report on CVG, a 3D Mario game will be released in October, while the system is also said to be getting another whole load of brand new releases before the year is out. We'll believe it when we see it, although we wouldn't be surprised to see games such as Mario Kart, the new Zelda game and more all making it out in 2013. Nintendo has to do something to fight off the likes of Sony and Microsoft after all.
Obsidian's Next Gen game 'already looking great'
Obsidian studio CEO Feargus Urquhart has told Eurogamer that its 'Next Gen Game' is already looking great. To be honest with a studio of around 150 employees, we'd be worried if they said it was 'looking pretty rubbish.'

A very interesting article has appeared on Forbes, suggesting that the split between the next Xbox and PS4 could come down to the approach of both companies. Essential it suggests that the PS4 will be a gaming machine first and foremost, while the next Xbox will be about al-round entertainment.
We have thought this for a while, but the article on Forbes certainly has a very interesting take on the matter, so check it out.
