NPD: Best-Selling Games of April 2007

"Software totals for the month of April have come in from the NPD Group today, and things are looking bleaker than ever for Sony's next-generation machine. Following a strong month of sales in March, the PS3 faltered slightly in April, with only one title making it into the top 20. The PS3's best-selling game in April was the port of F.E.A.R., with 45,846 units sold." Read full story IGN.com.
Not that surprised few consoles have been sold and the games are nothing to write home about. A killer app will push hardware and software sales.

Gamers day videos!!! Heavenly sword

Nariko is heavenly swords main character, she is a beautiful red head who embarks on a quest for vengeance against an evil empire. The heavenly sword is an ancient powerful artifact that if used by a mortal their life slowly gets drained. The video shows the games stunning graphics, the locals that were presented the game engines amazing capabilities especially the draw distance. The fighting sequences remind me allot of God of War. I guess that not a bad thing!!! Goddess of war!!

The Heavenly Sword video and other gamers day videos just click the PS3 tag .

HALO 3 sept 25!!!!

Will Halo 3 be the most successful launch in history?
Peter Moore thinks so(corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business.)"On Sept. 25, we intend to deliver a finale that will go down in entertainment history and leave people around the world with an experience that will be shared and enjoyed for years to come"
Halo 2 was a huge success it generated a record-setting $125 million in sales within the first 24 hours!
I hope Microsoft makes all their wishes come true, It dose not matter if you prefer one console over another what matters is that games,good games sell making the video game industry better in the long run for gamers!!

Japanese Chart for Week Ending 13th May
2007 DS(181,620)Wii(66,657)Ps3(8,872)360(2,293)
The 360 even with less than half the units of the PS3, it still has more software sold.

User created Content


For years now the PC gaming industry has enjoyed a rich and thriving User created content.
The first that comes to mind I think to all of us is Counter strike. Probably, the biggest online game bigger then WOW.
What consoles like the 360, Wii and the ps3 should do is support this group give them some incentive's. A healthy home brew community for consoles can mean a whole new market.
Look at XBMC one of the greatest maybe the greatest home brew out there. In addition, the best media player out there retail or non retail.
Here is a great interview with Valve Software marketing director Doug Lombardi.

Opinion: Yet another PS3 vs 360 debate...


I really don't like the 360 vs Wii vs ps3 Fan boy shoot outs.
We all know its about Game quality and unfortunately game quantity.
I choose not get into the whole issue but I cannot deny that its an issue that my readers are interested in so I found a pretty well written one. I don't agree with the writer its his own opinion!! Tell me what you think about it!!!!!

Final fantasy will not use the unreal engine!!!

Final Fantasy XIII will not be based on the Unreal engine like many FF fans anticipated!!!
A new multi platform R P G named "The Last Remnant" will be based on the Unreal engine!!
During the square Enix party real time videos were shown that blew away the spectators!!!
Could this be the next generation FF.Finally could this game be the game that will prove that releasing games on cross platforms is more profitable for SQUARE ENIX. Only time will tell, Enjoy the screen shots.

SPIDER MAN 3


Reading countless reviews and playing the wii version of the new spidey game, I realized that this spider man game is much worse than the other two games based on the movies by far!! First of all the ps3 and the 360 versions are almost identical meaning that all the crappy stuff in one game is in the other . What should I start with, the bad or the good.
THE GOOD: The swinging in all versions especially the Wii.
The BAD: The tectures,the models,the fighting ,the AI .......................... I can go on and on!!!
THE REALLY BAD: If you buy the wii version of this game the bad is times 2!!!!
Dont say I didnt warn you!

WII60


Peter Moore is the Corporate Vice President in Microsoft and is also the man who ran the show at Sega during the Dream cast era.The term "wii60" was conceived by him during a press confress, he clearly stated that for the price of one ps3 you can buy an X box 360 and a Wii! Since then the internet has turned it into a phenomena even starting a web site called wii60.com which has fans from the X box and the Wii. Who would a thunk it!

PS3 in greece 660 euros!!!!!!

After of months of speculations about the European ps3 price range they finally announced it at 599 euros for the 60gb version. Which I believe is a good price(don't kill me)! ill explain myself in another blog! A couple of days a go i walked into my local electronics store and what do i see the ps3 for 660 euros!!!!!!660 Euro = 892.980 US Dollars that is a 292 dollar difference from the USA . Sony Europe and Sony Hellas are clearly taking advantage of there European fans which even though the price ps3s are selling like hot cakes! Go figure

The xbox is back !!!!!


After months of reading about xbmc (xbox media center), I finnally decided to take the dive and I am still swimming in the wonderful world of possibly the most amazing piece of software ever created. Take a 50 to 100 dollar x box, pop in a 20 dollar mod chip, and a ether net cross over cable and in about a half an hour you have a 300 dollar media center that can play virtually every music and video file known to man and almost any video game emulator out there from the Atari to the n64. And allot more which I have yet to discover. Did I mention that xbmc is free. Do not be a fool like me and wait almost a year to get it, go right now you do not know what you are missing!
I will be posting constantly on the xbmc topic and informing you about this amazing software. GO GET IT NOW!!!!

To Wii or not to wii



I decided to start my blog on the Nintendo wii, I figured it would bring me good luck due to the fact that its selling like crazy. I got my wii on Dec 1 2006 in Greece, 7 days earlier than the official Nintendo launch but thats a whole other blog. The first month, I spent days playing Zelda and wii sports with friends. The whole wii mote function seemed interesting and fun at the time. But after 4 months of dust collecting on my wii, I am considering to sell it while i can still make some money back! I am playing with a new theory. Sell the wii now, and buy one in a year or two when there will be actual good games all ready out. There are no good games right now! And the publishers are just now slowwwwwwwwly learning the wii motes potential. On gamespot wii reviews only one game has a rating over 9!One whole game. And that game is Wario ware, which we all know is a compilation of mini games that mostly caters to kids. Also, almost every game that has been released has control issues.
Do not get me wrong I LOVE NINTENDO and I have the systems and the games to prove it but something deep inside me is telling me that the wii is a gimmick. I hope I am wrong.
