PlayStation CEO trolls for headlines by calling 3DS “babysitting tool”, probably needs his diaper changed

What do you do in the dog-eat-dog business world when the competition has left your mangled corpse in the dust in terms of sales figures? Inform the press that your rivals are a bunch of poopoo buttfaces , clap the dirt off your hands and pat yourself on the back for a job well done, of course. Total self-delusion is doing wonders for Charlie Sheen — when your career takes a huge nosedive, j...

Both versions in the fifth iteration of the series will be released to North America on March 6, 2011.

3DS vs. PSP, PS2 and GameCube

Most of the chatter we hear about the 3DS is the autostereoscopic 3D screens, but there’s also a huge advancement in it’s graphical capabilities. Although the important part of having good graphics is the talent of the artists that make them, I think this can provide a good idea of what can be achieved on the 3DS from a technical standpoint. It’s also worth noting that the Snake ...

Street Fighter 4 a possibility on the PSP? WHY NOT Wii!!

In a recent Q&A session on the Japanese Capcom blog. Capcom’s own Natsuki Shiozawa showed an interest in releasing a version of Street Fighter 4 for the PSP. Especially after the confirmation of Street Fighter 4 hitting some apple platforms. He even went so far as to say that the development team that is currently working on Super Street Fighter 4 is interested in the idea as well. Whil...

Insult to injury

Today’s DSi XL news is akin to an Olympic sprinter outrunning a man with no legs, but I’m going to bring it to you anyway because I’m a smug Nintendo fanman who loves to kick stupid products when they’re down. Deal with it. Basically, the DSi XL is beating the hapless PSPGo in Japan to the tune of 103,524 to 28,000 units in the first week two days of respective sales. The D...

Reggie Says Sony PSP Go is “Fundamentally Flawed”

Good ol’ Reggie. He recently spoke out concerning the new PSP Go, the new hand-held recently released by Sony as an effort to make the transition to digital download and content. (The PSP Go may have a) fundamental concept problem in terms of ‘Who’s it for?’ and ‘What’s the benefit?’ I have the utmost respect for all our competitors, but it’s interesting to try and answer the c...

Holiday game theft, watch out for store clerks

Recently I went to Walmart with some friends and family to try and tie up any lose ends for the holiday season. Of course being a gamer I give the gift of games to my younger family members. However, when I bought said games and brought them home to wrap and put away until the holidays, I noticed that one of the games was opened and that the game wasn’t there. The seal was cracked in such a ...

Tom Clancy’s EndWar coming to Nintendo DS

Ubisoft has confirmed in an interview with Play.tm that the highly anticipated, Tom Clancy’s EndWar is currently being developed for both the Nintendo DS, and PSP handhelds. Each campaign will boast 30 ‘scenarios’, with conflict taking place in famous locales like London and Paris. You’ll be able to create your own missions for two-player games, if you wish, or play one of the ...

Sony Patents Touchscreen Hand Held…

Looks like we’re going to be seeing another hand held from Sony sometime in the unknown future. What is even funnier is the fact that Sony is still up to their old games, taking ideas from Nintendo. Although that could be an unfair claim, we still don’t know exactly what this “Touchscreen Hand Held” can do… but we can only imagine. What surprises me even more is the f...

DS set to overtake PS2 in early 2008

The idea has been bandied about, dissected, contested and now it appears as though it will finally come to fruition: the DS, that plucky little multicolored portable, is set to overtake the PS2 in Japan sometime in early 2008. For some, this milestone was a given, especially in light of the portable’s insane sales numbers thoughout late 2006 and all of 2007. According to an article at GameIn...

Team Ninja’s Itagaki on choosing DS over PSP

Sure, he wears sunglasses at night, but Team Ninja’s executive producer Tomonobu Itagaki’s got game, man. He’s also highly opinionated and confident and dresses like a Japanese Michael Jackson, which can put some people off, but any man that can turn the DS on its ear (literally) and deliver a touch-based Ninja Gaiden game is worth listening to for a spell or two. This interview ...

Manhunt 2 rated M

Earlier today the ESRB gave Rockstar’s controversial Manhunt 2 a “M“ for mature. This announcement follows the debated July rating of AO. It is unclear at this time if Rockstar has toned the game down from it’s extremely violent state, or if the publics complaining caused the ESRB to give Manhunt 2 a second look. Either way, both Nintendo and Sony will now allow the title to be pub...
