Super Mario RPG, one of the most requested titles for the Virtual Console, will be releasing next month in Japan. The title will cost 100 points more than the usual Super Famicom title – 900 points – but it’ll be more than worth the extra points to most fans.

“We’ve been looking at DLC on the Wii for a long time, and with Guitar Hero 3, it was the first Guitar Hero game on the Wii. It was the first third-party WiFi title with online play. That took a lot of effort to be able to do that. We didn’t have the time, and the infrastructure and stuff wasn’t in place [at the time], for DLC [in GH3].” – CEO Karthik Bala, Vicarious Visions

So, we’re definitely getting a hard drive at E3…Right?! Well, I darn well hope so. I don’t know about you guys, but my “virtual refrigerator” has been cleaned one too many times.

DS Lite 37,404

PS3 9,071
PS2 7,189

Gamers play their games for various reasons. Some experience them for fun, some to escape from reality for a short while, and others for brain training. If you’re a male, however, the main reason as to why you play a game might be due to the satisfaction of conquering things – people, territory – you name it. An experiment was conducted in which both males and females were hooked up to wires and were given the task of obtaining territory in a video game. In the end, it was determined that the men “were a lot more motivated to succeed.”

So, why do you game? And do you earn a big sense of achievement from winning?


“We are currently in the design stages of two unannounced titles for the Wii, one of which we really feel will take the Wii to a whole new artistic level in terms of gameplay and presentation. We are hoping to really shake the industry’s opinion on what can be done with the Wii!” – Ben Krotin
