Look what was dropped into the inbox this morning. A copy of the "January new products launch brief". So pics aside, here are the details of what is being released and goes up for pre-order tomorrow. If you have not read one of these in the past, its an interesting read. Also of note is that there are some bundles not available in the US.

To break the code: anything with direct is online only and anything with splash means it'll be in store for a time period/until it sells out

These come to us via Secret Squirrel.
