Would love to see how the three console’s motion sensing software titles did over the big holiday sales period.
Were there any? I don’t seem to remember anyone talking about Kinect Sports or anything on PlayStation Move. Or the Wii, for that matter.
Perhaps everyone was too busy using their iPads and Kindles 3′s?
Weird fact of the day: Microsoft’s Xbox 360 division is still unprofitable.
More incredible value from Microsoft: Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the world’s first $65 directional pad.
[Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption] has become the US’s best-selling game of 2010 so far, according to new NPD figures.
You could take GamesIndustry’s lead paragraph in this article on game sales, replace the top seller with the term “blockbuster Xbox 360 game released this month” and it would look the same as it has for the past four years.
Mainly, one game for PS3/Xbox 360, and the rest are all Nintendo console titles. Powerful stuff.
Destructoid details the cornucopia of titles headed to the Wii in 2010. The Xbox 360 and PS3 libraries, ironically, look incredibly anemic by comparison.
Addendum: The PAX East expo floor was dominated with Xbox 360s, DSi XLs and, yes, even a bunch of Wii’s! Where O where were the PS3s?
Mass Effect 2: Not that bad. For an Xbox 360 game.
So says spinster Aaron Greenberg at Microsoft’s X10 conference today. After which, he proceeded to rattle off a list of sequels to games that game out in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
Halo: Reach, Fable III, Splinter Cell Conviction, Dead Rising 2, Lost Planet 2, Crackdown 2 and DLC for Left 4 Dead 2.
Lots of 2′s in there, which leads me to believe this year will actually weaker than years prior. That’s also about $360+ worth of software right there, PLUS DLC. Who can afford all this in a single year!? But hey, he’s a bullshit artist. Doing the job well.
Glancing at the December NPD numbers tonight—you know, the ones that showed Nintendo annihilating the competition 3:1—it struck me that games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 blow their load with six million sold on launch day, and then take a permanent nap thereafter.
Meanwhile, Mario Kart Wii, that quirky, stupid little racer that a MW2 player would have you believe seniors play at the nursing home, somehow sneaks into the top ten for one of the most important months of the year with nearly one million sold. That’s 700,000 copies behind MW2 (360 version), which launched the month before.
Don’t forget though, kiddies: 2010 is the year of the PS3!
