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

At Ubisoft’s recent event – Ubidays – a representative confirmed a Prince of Peria spin off for the Wii. The Wii will not be receiving the main title that will be releasing on the 360 and PS3, but the spin off Prince of Persia for the Wii will apparently be based off of it. This information has not been officially confirmed, although it does seem like a tangible possibility. No specific details were provided by the representative, however.

The above pamphlet can be found on the back of the Lego Indiana Jones instruction booklet. If this is valid, which it definitely appears to be, it would be the first Wii exclusive project. Star Wars fans are certainly getting their fair share of games this year.

“MGS will always be around. I feel a responsibility to continue this series as long as users demand it. But it doesn’t mean I’m going to sit in completely. I’ll probably take a different role in the next game. Maybe I’ll sit in as producer and let the young staff take control of the new series. I really want to go on to new things.” – Hideo Kojima

Metal Gear Solid 4 may be the last title featuring Solid Snake, but the series isn’t leaving any time soon. Who knows how the next game will turn out. A new game in the series could appear on any system, as Kojima has expressed interest in the Wii and Xbox 360 (although he would most likely develop an entirely new title.) And of course, Snake’s final outing will be taking place on the PS3…So all platforms are up for grabs.


“Pretty much, you pee like a man. What you do is stand on the balance board and you have to (mimicks shifting his body left and right) do is aim. So what you’re gonna do is (mimics stream of well, pee) and you’ll have to move front, back, left and right and you’re going to aim at stuff (laughs).” – Product Manager Loic Gounon

If you ask me, that’s a very odd minigame to include. Although, there may be some hilarious moments during gameplay. TV Party will have 75 minigames and Gounon also discussed Mii characters and a Wii channel for the game – Currently, both of these features are being discussed but no firm decision has been reached for their inclusion.


Samus never made the cut in the final game (Link was planned, too), though this is still awesome to watch. Activision originally planned on having the two Nintendo characters in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, but the idea was scrapped, most likely due to the fact that this was sprung on Nintendo. Oh, and the fact that the footage was from the PS2 game might have hurt their cause.


Deca Sports, a title comparable to that of Wii Sports, released just a few days ago in America. However, more games in the series have already been confirmed to be in the works. Mike Pepe of Hudson USA, speaking on a DS version noted, “We are exploring ports to other platforms. The DS being one of them. The controls and mechanics need to make sense though as the gameplay within centres around both of these.” An additional title for the Wii is also planned, and Pepe encourages fans of the series to voice their desires on the Deca Sports website. No concrete news other than this was provided regarding the new Wii title, but hopefully Hudson Soft can address the issues that plagued the Wii version and discover the best formula that would be suitable for the DS.
