[Every week, GamerBytes' editor Ryan Langley passes along 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.]

This week on Xbox Live Arcade we get NHL Arcade, which was also last week's PSN release. We also get Minesweeper Flags, a game the Xbox Live Team didn't even get round to officially announcing.

It's a big week for the PlayStation Network too -- Flower is coming out! Be checking your store this week for what the developers 'interestingly' call "a video game version of a poem".

And finally, this week's WiiWare release was Lit, a strange WayForward-developed puzzle game in which you must stay in the light in order to continue through every level. It's one of the best WiiWare titles in a while, apparently.

Lots of news this week, too -- Battlefield 1943, Cletus Clay, Worms HD PSN and more showing up throughout the week. I also highly suggest checking out the new YouTube XNA Community Games show XNA Roundup for your latest XNA game updates.
