Playstation 3 Stepping Up to Wii U with Family Friendly Line Up

When you think of the PS3, what comes to mind?  I would guess that your answer would be titles such as God of War or Uncharted, basically mature themed games that include violence.  However, most of Sony’s newest titles will not be launching until 2013.  So how do they plan on competing against the Wii U launch? Sony has decided that the best method to compete against the Wii U this holiday ...

Watch Out Nintendo, WeMade Entertainment is Coming For You!

Over the years, Nintendo has battled many competitors across the gaming universe and each foe has fallen to the wayside.  Sure, you can argue that Sony and Microsoft are hanging on, and I wouldn’t disagree, but in gaming years they are still infants.  Nintendo has been around much longer and has learned from trial and error many times over.  I would say that Nintendo has been around the bloc...

What If..?

It seems that every generation has a series of consoles that battle over gaming dominance. Probably the greatest was Nintendo VS Sega.  I actually loved both systems equally, but always leaned a little towards Nintendo. At times the NES/Sega battle got pretty intense with advertisements such as the one pictured above.  At the time it was great seeing them battle it out because new and exciting gam...

Cause for concern? Report says Apple is now Japan’s top consumer brand

A report published from the Japanese publication The Nikkei states that Apple, not Nintendo, Sony, or even Microsoft, is officially the top consumer brand in all of Japan. This is the first time that Apple has claimed the top spot in the Land of the Rising Sun with a a score of 90.5 (out of 100) in terms of total brand power. Car manufacture Toyota came in second in a separate survey, yet neither ...

Nintendo Playstation?

As Gamers we all know that back in the day Nintendo and Sega were the big dogs.  Neither could be touched, and those who tried quickly suffered the worst dog bit imaginable.  Of course times change, Sega faded away, and Xbox and Sony found forever homes in our hearts. But, did you know that things could have been different? Back in the early 90’s Nintendo Nintendo knew that the SNES was a po...

Nintentunes: The anti-Nintendo edition

Video game music has come a long way from the bleeps and bloops that populated most game at the inception of the medium, and seems only right to take a look back at not only game that have appeared on Nintendo consoles, but ones that have appeared on consoles that do things that Ninten-don’t (see what I did there?). With that said, I hope you enjoy this weeks walk down memory lane in this ed...

Regarding the recent news about Vita’s battery…

Hmmm. Three to five hours…and that’s with online capabilities disabled. Sounds awfully familiar, doesn’t it? I wonder how Sony fans are adapting to the news. I’d like to send them all a card: “Misery loves company, guys. Welcome aboard the S.S. Recharge.”

How do PS Vita details change how you feel about 3DS (if at all)?

Sony named, dated, and priced its new handheld today. Dubbed PS Vita, the touch and control enabled handheld is as powerful as modern consoles. It supports interoperable multiplayer with PS3, and has a street pass like feature called “near.” Oh, and it’s $250, just like 3DS, and launching this fall. That said, it’s being reported that Sony will lose money in releasing Vita,...

Name that company

Hey! A little game to start off our Tuesday. What fun! Here it goes. It’s pretty simple: Guess the mystery company using the clues provided. Blame the customers for lower than expected sales. Fledgling handheld. Rumored $400 next-gen console. Ignore the competition, label it insignificant or kiddie or even dangerous to the industry. Use weird doublespeak and borderline lies in your press rel...

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...

Portable gaming, now with more cellphone contracts!

So Sony is allegedly readying a PSPGo with a cellphone bolted on, courtesy Sony Ericsson. Gaming is changed forever! The 3DS is doomed! I kid, I kid. I think. More seriously, word is Nintendo and Nokia had a similar arrangement back in the day that never materialized, for reasons unknown (the device even went through the R&D process!). This isn’t exactly new territory, in other words. S...

Microsoft tries to make Kinect look affordable

The “hardcore” casual motion control guys at Microsoft are getting cute with price charts.  In a damage control effort to deflate popular opinion that Kinect is a bit pricey, Microsoft has released a few interesting charts painting the accessory as the most affordable gateway to motion control.  How do they battle the reasonably priced motion control Wii? By assuming the balance boar...
