Kinect selling well and quickly at retail is “amazing.” Wii’s 5-year dominance and continued success this past Black Friday is some kind of “fluke” or “last gasp.”
Are people really surprised that a brand new new piece of tech with a half a billion dollar marketing campaign is doing well in the first few months? Really? Get back to me in a year.
Nintendo should probably just accept that the Wii has peaked and that they will not sell anymore consoles. I mean, Black Friday was an absolutely abysmal time for the company, after all.
IGN calls Gran Turismo 5 the “king” of driving simulators in the same review that says the game is sterile, lifeless at times, and not much of an update over the 4th installment, which came out over six years ago.
Then, an 8.5 review score. Seriously, why even bother to have reviews anymore?
Elder Scrolls V Is A Direct Sequel To Oblivion, reports Kotaku. Really? Annoying bugs and all?
Kinect, Move sales are “tepid” amongst those consumers who do not already own an Xbox 360 or PS3.
Perhaps it’s because the games treat people as though they are mentally challenged?
If the GotY is not Donkey Kong Country Returns, and it is, say, Black Ops or something, the industry has all but confirmed it is happy being the adolescent boys club it’s been for the past decade, and will never change.
That’s fine, and obviously very lucrative for certain titles and developers, but you know what they say about things that refuse to change…
Wii, PS3 see no sales impact in the run up to Kinect launch. Which is weird, because I could have sworn Microsoft was calling this a graduation platform for all those kiddie Wii owners.
Tony Hawk really needs to stop making video games.
Reggie tries his best to not say “Metroid Other M didn’t sell well because it was an awful game that ruined the series.”
