Posted 10 years ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 4 Comments
“Currently the plan is purely Olympic Games, and it would be wrong of me to speculate about whether there is going to be Mario & Sonic, this, that, or the other.” – Sean Ratcliffe, vice president of marketing at Sega of America
I know a lot of you guys would love to see Mario & Sonic team up in something other than the Olympics. Is there any particular genre any of you would like to see the two take part in together?

Gripping, Gyrating Ball Puzzler That Tests the Old Grey Matter played with either the Wii Remote or Wii Balance Board Now Available on WiiWare
PARIS, FRANCE – April 6, 2009 – DK Games an independent premier video game developer, announced announced that Equilibrio a new mesmerizing and gripping, gyrating ball puzzle solving and manipulation game is now available throughout the Americas on WiiWare™.
Set in a colorful world, the challenge may look simple but Equilibrio tests not only your reflexes but the old gray matter. The basic concept of getting your ball to the exit pod to finish the level is turned upside down, as you use your Wii Remote™ or Wii Balance Board™, to rotate the play area varying degrees in either direction. Players skillfully move the spinning ball through corridors, along ledges that are fraught with dangers to complete levels. Move the ball too fast and it can shatter, leaving you to pick up the pieces and restart the level. Go too slow and the ‘equilibrio’ of the ball will not be powerful enough to spring to the desired spot.

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories officially announced – and it’s not a Wii exclusive
Posted 10 years ago by Brian in News, Wii | 3 Comments
The roots of evil revealed in Silent Hill®: Shattered Memories
Konami reinvents its first Silent Hill classic, as Shattered Memories arrives to scare on Wii, PSP and PlayStation 2
Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH is to bring its terrifying Silent Hill series to Wii™ as Silent Hill: Shattered Memories heads to the Nintendo system for the first time in Autumn. The game, a clever reimagining of the now out of print first Silent Hill title, will also be released for PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) and PlayStation®2 at the same time.
While the game shares its twisting plot with the original PlayStation game, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories takes a different path in many, many ways. Characters can be approached but will offer different responses and be found in different places, while new clues and gameplay paths can be followed. The title follows Harry Mason, as he attempts to unravel the mystery of his missing daughter, Cheryl. A broken man, Mason’s investigations lead him to the mist-shrouded, snowy streets of Silent Hill: a malevolent town where the shadows play host to a wealth of evil, misshapen creatures.
Designed to make full use of the Wii’s unique controllers, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories uses the Wii Remote™ as a torch and cell phone as Mason looks for clues. The torch is vital for scouring the darkened, abandoned buildings of Silent Hill, while the phone acts as a secondary user interface, allowing the player to access maps via its GPS capabilities and take pictures of interesting elements. Likewise, the Wii Remote also can be used to pick up, examine and manipulate items to solve puzzles along the journey. Such technology was not available when the original Silent Hill was released in 1999, and its inclusion showcases Konami’s determination to enhance the playing experience with new, available technology.
DSi the fourth fastest-selling console in UK based on weekend sales
Posted 10 years ago by Brian in DS, News | 3 Comments
GfK-ChartTrack data shows that the DSi is now the fourth fastest-selling console in the UK. The system, which launched in Europe on Friday, managed to outsell the PSP, PS3, and Xbox 360, and original DS based on weekend sales.
“It’s a very impressive opening couple of days considering the lack of launch software. It’s the fourth fastest-selling console in UK history in terms of opening weekend – one ahead of the original DS in fifth and way ahead of DS Lite. It’s difficult to tell if the momentum will continue into the week, as much of the sales would have been pre-ordered. There was also a slight spike in DS software.” – GfK-ChartTrack’s Chris Poole
