Spyborgs launch trailer

This comes from the Capcom-Unity forums…

“We’ll always be experimenting with new IP. This generation of hardware alone has given us:

Lost Planet

Age of Booty

Flock

Dead Rising

Zack & Wiki

Spyborgs

We Love Golf

Dark Void

Ghost Trick (recently announced)

If you wanted to take a more liberal view of something like TvC, you could call it a new franchise for us, even if it isn’t new IP (all characters have previously existed).

And I’m sure some others I’m forgetting off the top of my head. Naturally, we always need to be introducing new IP so that we have some percentage of them “stick” to become ongoing franchises. But it’s always a balancing act both to keep fans happy and to manage risk.” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

Cammie Dunaway will be forever known for her E3 2008 performance, when she participated in a demo of Shaun White Snowboarding on stage. Between the story about her broken wrist and her Balance Board performance, that whole portion of Nintendo’s E3 conference became a running joke of sorts.

Someone over at GAME (a giant UK retailer) must have recalled what happened at E3 last year. As you can see from the boxart above, the image features a significant blunder. No, Cammie Dunaway is not in Shaun White Snowboarding 2. You have to wonder how that modified version of the boxart managed to slip through on to GAME’s website!

It was inevitable, wasn’t it? Earlier today during a conference call, the Wii’s price drop was apparently confirmed. As was expected, the new price of the console will be dropped to $199 on Sunday, September 27th. Because of the Walmart, Toys R Us, Target, and Best Buy ad listings, a widespread cut is probable. Nintendo has not made an official announcement yet, but it looks like all of the rumors can finally be put to rest.

Walmart, Toys R Us, Target, and now Best Buy are saying that there will be a Wii price drop in just a matter of weeks. I’m still going to remain on the rumor, but this is looking more official as the days go by.

We’ll have to see if this boxart sticks, as Nintendo has a few months to change it. As far as the Walmart deal goes, you can obtain a $10 eGift Card with the game.
