Having already discussed the future of Nintendo and where they need to go in order to “survive”, there are a number of third party developers that would no doubt love to get their games on Nintendo’s new system. These developers would also bring their most popular franchises to the system. Which developers would most likely bring their games to this console? Let’s take a look.

Toys R Us’ buy 2 get 1 free deal is ending on October 16, but a similar sale at GameStop will be available starting tomorrow. Although they’re nearly identical, in the case of GameStop, consumers can only choose from used games and accessories. If you can’t wait, you can shop online and take advantage of the deal by entering the code “b2g1free.” It’s unclear when the offer ends, so it’d be wise to purchase any games you’re interested in soon.

Hey guys – Just a quick update from me. Following a one week hiatus, Game Night is on track for tomorrow. As usual, I’ll make a post with the IRC at about 7:00 PM EDT, and we’ll probably start the event at 7:15. Let me know if you have any specific game requests, though I have a feeling that we’ll end up playing Mario Kart Wii or The Conduit. Although, you never know… Perhaps we’ll do a few round of Excitebots!

Oh, and one other thing before I forgot – I was thinking that perhaps we’ll do a DS Game Night soon. If we do one of those, which games do you guys have, and which ones would you be interested in playing?

Anita Frasier:

“Accessories was the only category up in dollar sales for the month, driven by sales of Specialty Controllers and Audio. Specialty controllers include the new Playstation Move Navigation controller and Sports Champions bundle, which contributed to this accessory type’s growth.”

“While industry sales of new physical retail sales show a decline versus year ago, it’s important to remember that there is a growing volume of content being sold digitally, or otherwise outside the traditional retail channel. These numbers reflect the largest channel for hardware, software and accessories sales, but there are content sales happening elsewhere.”

“A couple other platforms, specifically the PS3 and the PSP are up on an average sales per week basis as compared to last month (August 2010). Interestingly, the average retail price of hardware increased notably this month, driven primarily by the Xbox 360 Halo:Reach bundle and the PS3 Move bundle.

“Total sales of hardware and software, including PC games, were down 8% from Sept. 2009. Overall sales hit $1.22 billion, compared to $1.32 billion last September.”

“Hardware sales of $383 million were down 19%, compared to Sept. 2009 ($427 million).”

Remember, chances are we won’t receive data for most games, as well as hardware. NPD changed the way they are distributing their data, so most numbers are not available.
