Hey guys, ive decided to move my blog to HERE this way I can have a better layout and still give u guys the best content, all my content will now be moved to this site and will stay there until otherwise, check out the new blog You’ll still get the latest gaming info and ways to get free Microsoft points and more insider secrets. I hope to see u there.
If u look at the stats, the PS3 had the best games of 2009 and the worst was the Wii with critics liking only 28% of 300+ games. PS3 led with the top three games Uncharted 2, Street fighter 5, and Modern Warfare 2. Honorable mentions went to PS3 who had 5/10, next game the Xbox 360 with 4, and finally Nintendo with a measly 1 game which was Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars for the DS.
Critics never liked the Wii due to its vast amount of crappy games, they just weren’t fun to play. Back in September there seemed to be a rise and a new beginning, guess that didn’t last long. But strangely enough, through November the Wii sold 1 million units with Xbox 360 at 819,500, then the PS3 with 710,400 overall.
Nintendo better be making some better games for the Wii or else sales will plummet and it wont be pretty. Thats all forr the 2009 ranks.
Still don’t have a Wii? Are u waiting for the Christmas break to get one? DONT! When the Wii first came out the price tag on it was $250.00 Which was still less expensive than the PS3 and Xbox 360, but it was considered an amateur gaming console, nevertheless, it was still awesome to play it. During September, the Wii had a $50 price cut and went down to $199.99 after the Xbox 360 and PS3 also dropped their prices. If you didn’t have a chance to get a Wii during the Black Friday sale either. your chance is here.
Walmart is offering an amazing deal on the Wii, they’re offering another $50 off the Wii!! That brings the price down to $149.99 which is the lowest ive ever seen! This is NOT a deal going on anywhere else but Walmart, so for all you gamers ready to get a Wii, this is your chance. But you better hurry, Walmart is ending this deal December 12th, so get out and go buy youself a Wii and save $50.
Nintendo has been recently named the “world’s best company” by BusinessWeek. It managed to beat out competition of Google and Exxonmobile, shocking! But what made Nintendo the world’s best company even though its sales are low due to the late price cut of Nintendo.
Well I asked the same question and BusinessWeek said that it was “Emblematic.” What does that mean? Well if you look at the figures, in the past 5 years nintendo has a huge increase in sales of 36% with a annual growth of 38%.
Sony and Microsoft didn’t even place on the list which I think is hilarious, once again beaten by Nintendo. Well have to see what Microsoft and Sony have in store for the future.
A new product is going to be introduced in stores, its not all that great, but it will be flying off the shelves due to its features. The new Wii Motionplus is designed to take complete precision on the Wii’s. Gamers have been disappointed by the old remotes lack of accuracy was always a downside. Not anymore! The Wii MotionPlus is going to start selling on June 8th, the difference between these remotes and the old ones are that the new ones use gyroscopic sensors to mimic hand movements exactly
“The great thing about this particular new technology — which isn’t always true for other new technologies — is that we immediately saw the benefits of it,” said Jason Shenkman, senior producer of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10.
“Before I even touched it or got my hands on it, I knew exactly what having a gyroscope in our possession would do.”
It is still unclear why the original remotes weren’t released with this new technology.
“We are always looking at ways to enhance the gaming experience for consumers,” said Denise Kaigler, Nintendo vice president of corporate affairs. “This was another way of enhancing the gaming experience, and consumers will hopefully choose to experience that more immersive type of game play and enjoy it.”
“One of the cool things is that with Wii MotionPlus, we know how hard you have swung the remote,” Vandenberghe said. “That means we can ask the player to have a more physical experience, like having enemies who are wearing armor that players will have to hit harder with their sword.”
Only 5 games so far have been able to use this new technology and those games are: Tiger Woods, Wii Sports Resort from Nintendo, Grand Slam Tennis from Electronic Arts; Virtua Tennis 2009 from Sega, and Red Steel 2 from Ubisoft.
Look out Mario, you’ve got a new competitor. The Nintendo Wii the newest and most revolutionary system has just topped one of the most selling games ever. Mario used to be the biggest craze and the most sold game ever, not anymore.
Mario has just been topped by the new game Wii sports which allows a player to play around 5 different kinds of sports including Boxing, Bowling, Baseball, etc. The impressive part is it only took 2 months to top the best selling game ever!
Mario sales were 40.24 Million units and Wii sports has surpassed it. With over 45 million Wii’s sold and with a copy of Wii sports with every system sold its no wonder that it topped Mario. Before you say its a false victory, consider that Super Mario was also sold as a bundle during the 1980’s. Even without the bundle in Japan, Wii sports sold 3.2 million copies.
