I thought this was an extremely interesting article from Sankaku Complex (via N4G) [Content warning – some readers may be offended by the anime links and images contained throughout the site.] The article outlines how Microsoft will pony up money for an exclusive 360 title. At some point the game will be ported to the [...]

Not says me, but according to Good Gear Guide (Australian based something or another site found via N4G). This places the Sony PS3 in a commanding position to usurp the Xbox 360 and Wii as Europe’s best-selling console. (Prior to the launch of the Slim, the original PlayStation 3 was only a million units behind [...]

More Final Fantasy Conundrums

No comments

There is nothing like a PS3 vs. Xbox 360 controversy to heat up the N4G charts. Add in a dash of Final Fantasy XIII is being compromised due to the limited capabilities of the non Blu-ray system, and you have the makings for a serious chart topper. This story from PS3Center makes the case that [...]

These kinds of articles make N4G and other feeder services go haywire. Grown men cry; women hide the children. The blogsphere blows up. ars technical just posted an interview with Naughty Dog stating that the Xbox 360 cannot handle the upcoming Unchartered 2. “I guarantee that this game couldn’t be working on XBox 360. It [...]

First thing this morning I checked N4G to see what sort of PS3 price drop announcement was afoot, but right now we are getting silence. I am not sure why I care; it is not as if I am going to buy another PS3 just because they are cheaper. Maybe because mine dies again, which [...]

Another day, another game of spin the numbers. This time MCV (via N4G) shows us that the PS3 outperforms Xbox 360 for EA. Wii revenues lead the charge at $161m, up from $109m in the same quarter last year. Next up was PC, which courtesy of The Sims 3, bought in a considerable $124m. Next [...]

Spinning the numbers.

Console sales data is always a hot topic at N4G, so it is no surprise that this article from Gamezine [UK based] is burning up the charts. What I find surprising [actually this should come as no surprise] is the ridiculous spin everyone puts on this type of data. For example, Although it’s odd to [...]

It is like a gaming vortex has sucked all the news dry. There is just not much going on right now. Maybe the biggest story is that Xbox 360 Live Gold subscribers will get the Madden 10 demo July 23, a week or so before anyone else. No idea when us poor saps with a [...]

I ran across this article via N4G and thought it was a bit ridiculous. The author is claiming that the PS3 is really not doing that bad. Huh? In their lifetimes, the Gamecube sold 21.74 million units, and the original Xbox 24 million. With the PS3 at 23 million, that means that it has sold [...]

Friday Stuffs

Because it is Friday. And I have stuffs to discuss. She’s a good hearted woman… Happy b-day T! You’re still the best! Many happy returns. I never could get Sony’s online repair system to tell me squat about my PS3, but last night I received noticed that my PS3 just left Laredo, TX. It looks [...]

The only reason I am posting a link to this story from the escapist is because their content is always well written, provoking thought, and of course entertaining. But really, do we need another “Sony lost, blah, blah, blah …” story? Only the Game Boy kept Nintendo in the race, while Sony led two hardware [...]

What the hell? N4G has a 1000+ degree hot item from TheSixthAxis. By golly wow, it appears that the PS3 is going to pick up a 360 game, hot dog! Whilst we can’t reveal any specifics right now, we can now reveal that the PlayStation 3 will play host to a popular 360 favourite. The [...]

I love these quick sound bites. According to Reuters, Sony Corp Chief Executive Howard Stringer says no PS3 price cuts anytime soon. Asked about the logic of not cutting prices, Stringer said, “I (would) lose money on every PlayStation I make — how’s that for logic.” Does that really mean no price cuts for the [...]
