Kinection Error: Don’t Move! Sony and Microsoft fall flat at E3

Despite impressive tech demos at last year’s E3, Microsoft’s recently re-branded “Kinect” and Sony’s Playstation Move controller felt more dated than the “underpowered” Nintendo console they are trying to out-motion. What do we mean by dated? Obviously this has nothing to do with graphical capability or processing power – something on which both the Xbox 360 and Playsta...

Apple, Steve Jobs gunning for Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft with iPhone 4.0 update

Nintendo may not (publicly) care much about people playing games on Apple products, but don’t tell that to Apple. At their iPhone OS 4.0 preview event today the company came out gunning for Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft. Shot one was a social networking platform called Game Center that’s built into the phone’s OS. Basically, people in gaming will call this feature Xbox Live Lite, ...

Nintendo “embarrassed” by Wii copycats

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime said he wouldn’t dare rip off the competition like Sony and Microsoft are doing with Wii. “I think we would have been embarrassed to do what our competitors are currently doing,” he told Kotaku, when asked what his company’s next console might include. “So, all I can tell you is t...

Youtube Tuesday: Nintendo vs Sony vs Microsft

It’s been a while since this was brought up… but who do you think is winning the console war? To be honest, I’ve always believed that we’d lose no matter who wins. Have any suggestions or videos for YouTube Tuesday? Send them in at tips@infendo.com

Ghostbusters only Sony exclusive in PAL territories, US multiplatform release still a go

Ghostheads in US territories can breath a collective sigh of release thanks to Atari CEO Jim Wilson, who contacted GamesIndustry this morning to assure them that Sony only bought the rights to the upcoming Ghostbusters game in PAL territories. “The Sony Computer Entertainment partnership is exclusive to Europe, Atari is going to be publishing on all platforms in the US on June 16,” cla...

Sony Just Crossed the Streams, and Fans. Ghostsbusters Delayed

What will probably be known as the most dickish move of 2009, Sony just picked up the rights from Atari to publish the Ghostbusters game. What this means is that the game will now be an exclusive for the Playstation 2, Playstation 3, and Playstation Portable. There has been no word on what will happen to the Wii and Xbox360 versions. Update: Ghosbusters Sony exclusive only in PAL territories, Mult...

An open letter to Nintendo regarding Sony PlayStation Home

Dear Nintendo, Hi. Jack Here. How are you? I’m feeling pretty super myself. Quick little thing. I know how you and online don’t exactly see eye-to-eye right now. And Friend Codes. *whistle* Yeah, Friend Codes. Don’t get me started on those. I tried entering all the people I know into my system for Mario Kart Wii the other day and my TV literally walked out on me. Said “enou...

Comment of the week: Wii satisfaction

Lord Toker, on if Wii hit a homerun or if Microsoft and Sony vulnerabilities make Nintendo look better than it really is. “Just because Sony and Microsoft are having problems doesn’t mean the Wii wouldn’t have been a success. I’d say Nintendo hit a triple in the opening inning and never stopped scoring. It’s a fun machine that uses a new perspective to give most gamers a new and welc...

E3 afterthought: Which was worse?

Nintendo’s E3 2008 press conference Or… Sony’s E3 2006 press conference?

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...

Video Games Live: The Wolf in Sheep’s clothing

Video Games Live is supposedly a concert of epic proportions bringing together video game music and symphony orchestras. This concert was started by Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall, who are both composers in the world of game design. Since this show was stopping in New York City at the Beacon Theater, I just had to go out and see this, seeing as everyone is talking about it. This seemed to be the pe...
