“Unless there are specific concerns regarding premature disclosure of a title, we expect this field to be left blank. …While we recognize some publishers have concerns regarding earlier-than-desired ‘announcements’ of product on our website, the ESRB system will not work for consumers if publishers arbitrarily select dates bearing no reasonable relationship to consumer interest in the product.” – ESRB

This is really a shame, as we were able to discover hidden titles through the ESRB. I do understand where companies are coming from though, since the additions of game listings to the ESRB website allow fans to get early insight into games that they probably aren’t ready to reveal. Hey, at least that means that there will be more, unannounced surprises in the future.

Datel in sending out a statement in regards to the latest Wii Menu update. As most already know, updating your Wii will render Datel’s FreeLoader inoperable. This is in strong contrast to Datel’s previous guarantee, in which the company implied that future Wii updates would not affect the product. In Datel’s statement, the company explains that if you want to use the Wii FreeLoader, you should make sure not to upgrade.

We have received this from Datel today regarding Freeloader – and we wanted to let you know this important information ASAP to keep you informed:

*** Please note, due to circumstances beyond our control Wii Freeloader is not compatible with latest version Wii firmware 3.3 and higher, just released (released as an online update 17/06/2008). You can continue to use Wii Freeloader perfectly with any Wii console running firmware 3.2 and below. If you upgrade to Wii firmware 3.3 or higher this WILL disable the Freeloader function and it will stop working for all future use on all import games. ***

I have included Extensive information about this at the bottom of this email, with thanks.

EDISON, N.J., June 19th, 2008 – Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced Escape the Museum for Wii. Based on the popular online hunt and find game from Gogii Games, Escape the Museum is being developed by Majesco Studios and will be available in retail outlets this holiday for only $19.99.

“Although an incredibly successful PC genre, the hunt and find adventure category has yet to be introduced on Wii,” said Liz Buckley, Director of Marketing, Majesco. “Escape the Museum’s online success coupled with category opportunity and an attractive price point make this an ideal title to bring to market.”

In Escape the Museum, a devastating earthquake has rocked the foundations of the National Museum of History and players must help Susan Anderson, who was knocked unconscious by falling debris while searching the museum for survivors, escape from the crumbling building to the safety outside. Thwarted by doors blocked with rubble and tripped alarm systems, players wander through the museum’s maze of 12 different hunt and find areas and 25 action-packed adventure scenes, using the Wii Remote to uncover hidden exits and save priceless archaeological artifacts. Along the way, players will solve puzzles, consult a map and access hints to help them inch closer to freedom and a joyful reunion with Susan’s lost daughter, Caitlin.

Escape the Museum for Wii is expected to release this holiday for $19.99. For additional information about Majesco’s exciting line of products, please visit http://www.majescoentertainment.com/.

BioWare considering Wii development

BioWare is still working on its first handheld effort, Sonic Chronicles for the Nintendo DS, but the team may be interested in developing for the Wii. In a very brief part of an interview, Mark Darrah of BioWare revealed, “Yeah, we’re looking into Wii and PSP as a company, as well, but nothing’s been decided, and nothing’s been announced. And we are, from styles of games, we are trying to broaden our portfolio. But we still have Dragon Age, which is a more traditional style of BioWare game.” It doesn’t seem as though there are concrete, official plans to develop for the Wii, though it is a plausible idea at this point.
