“If Nintendo is really committed to reaching a broader, more diverse audience of gamers beyond the ‘kids’ market that they’ve always engaged, there isn’t much new with the DSi to support that. Significant gamer demographic groups are being ignored, and there continues to be limited opportunities for games from external publishers to do well on the DSi. Compare that with the PSP platform, where we have many blockbuster franchises from our publishing partners launching this year, representing a wide variety of genres and targeting diverse demographics. Games such as Rock Band Unplugged from MTV Games, Assassin’s Creed from Ubisoft, Dissidia Final Fantasy from Square Enix, and Hannah Montana from Disney demonstrate the commitment that publishers have to the PSP. From our own first-party studios, we’re launching unique versions of LittleBigPlanet and MotorStorm, and we’re also planning a steady stream of downloadable games — both new titles and PSone classics — to add to the content that PSP owners can already purchase wirelessly through PlayStation Store.” – SCEA director of hardware marketing John Koller

Wait…So all of the adults who have purchased Professor Layton and Brain Age are actually just kids? And since when was Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars developed for children?


We’re back!

Have I ever told you guys how much I hate site downtime? Yeah…It’s not fun. The site went down a few hours ago because one of our host’s power breaker went out. 30 machines went offline, which impacted the website. We’re back now though!

“It is moderately successful and has exceeded forecast (slightly, not by some rediculous amount). That is doing well. Did it do a million or a half million units worldwide? Of course not. But it’s still a moderate success because of the issues I called out earlier (game quality/managed scope). I’m not sure what else to tell you. No, expectations haven’t changed. I don’t think Colin’s statement contradicts mine (though it is a bit more rose colored).” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

So…It looks as though Okami did well, but not anything that made anyone at Capcom jump out of their seats.

Considering the success behind Nintendo’s Balance Board game Wii Fit, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see a sequel – or some sort of improved version – release as well. Someone snapped a photo of a retailer listing in Amsterdam for Wii Fit Plus, which shows that the game would arrive in November. A bundle with the Balance Board would also be available. The listing additionally points to Wii MotionPlus coming in July in Europe, which is not the first time that similar speculation about the product has been heard. We’ll have to see how all of these rumors play out in the future.
