At Level-5’s annual press conference, London Life was announced, which apparently is somewhat similar to Mother 3. However, London Life is unlockable content from the fourth Professor Layton and is not actually a new game. Once players complete the fourth Professor Layton title, London Life will become immediately available. It’s being developed by Brownie Brown and focuses on making others happy through RPG elements. Level-5’s boss Akihiro Hino stated that it will take more than 100 hours just to run through London Life – Which certainly makes it a worthwhile unlockable!

“I think that they may see sales suffer, and certainly will see sales down year-over-year. So we have to see if they cut, unbundle and cut, or rebundle (with Wii Sports Resort plus Wii Motion Plus). They’re hard to figure out.” – Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter

“(Nintendo is) struggling to keep the Wii relevant.” – Kaufman Bros. Todd Mitchell

“While the target audience for the two platforms varies greatly, some consumers will face a tough decision to purchase the Wii with outdated processing power or the PlayStation 3 with a built-in Blu-Ray player.” – Jesse Divnich, EEDAR

I personally feel that some sort of price balance is needed to keep the Wii selling as well as it has been. Be that a price cut or a new bundle, something is going to happen to make more people purchase the system other than just new software.
