Release date update: 'Homefront,' 'Angry Birds Rio,' 'Battlefield 3'

Minor delays to Wii shooter
Conduit 2, controversial war game
Homefront, and the UK version of
Two Worlds II are accompanied by announcements for
Angry Birds Rio,
Battlefield 3,
Dark Souls, a demo for
Dragon Age II, and more.

PopCap Arcade Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 finally come to the UK as PopCap Hits, a collection of Xbox LIVE downloads for those that prefer discs.

In comparison, there's a significantly shorter UK delay to top fantasy adventure Two Worlds II results from the country's consignment suffering damage on route.
