50°
283w ago - Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron will launch this fall on the Sony PSP and Nintendo DS, as announced today by LucasArts.

The game will follow the story of X2, a Force-sensitive clone trooper created from the DNA of a Jedi Master. After experiencing troll's remorse and joining the Rebellion, X2 eventually comes into conflict with his evil clone brother X1.

The game includes a special "Heroes and Villains" mode where you can play as classic Star Wars characters like Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett as well as characters from Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

Players will now also be able to fight on multiple levels. You can stay on the ground and fight on foot or commandeer a vehicle. You can even take the fight to space and do battle on capital ships.

Here's an overview of the different features found in the game's PSP and DS versions:

• deep customization options lets you dictate the weapons they carry into battle, the armor they wear on their backs, their species, gender, appearance and physical strengths including hundreds of unlockable items and bonuses
• 16-player multiplayer matches complete with enhanced stat tracking
• 12 campaign levels
• class-based gameplay lets you take advantage of...
 

Activision Announces Guitar Hero 5, Band Hero & DJ Hero for Fall

200°
286w ago - Activision continues in updating its Guitar Hero franchise this year with three new full titles coming this autumn, as follows:

The newly announced Guitar Hero 5 will offer "the ability to drop in and out of songs and change band members, instruments and difficulty levels on the fly."

The press release contains no other details regarding the game, but you can bet it'll be pretty similar to Guitar Hero: World Tour.

Band Hero is the second of Activision's Hero trifecta for this fall. Don't be confused, Band Hero is completely separate from Guitar Hero. Except it's very similar - it's Activision's attempt at a family-oriented Guitar Hero game, rated E10+, and will be facing off against Harmonix's Lego Rock Band later this year.

Finally, DJ Hero is something we've been hearing a lot of murmurs about for a while. It will feature "diverse music genres including hip-hop, R&B, Motown, electronica and dance" and will include the turntable controller, images of which we posted earlier.

Apparently the title "transforms players into DJs who rule the club scene by creating original mixes of popular songs and music from the world's most exciting artists and DJs."

Nintendo Wii Sales Fall in Japan, DSi Sales Up Slightly Last Week

50°
299w ago - Has the Wii's bubble finally burst? Sales figures from Japanese retailers show the Wii is the only console to show negative growth over the last week.

While it is far too soon to start shouting the demise of the Wii from the rooftops, Nintendo saw unit sales of its home console fall by 3,000 units, allowing the PlayStation 3 to close the sales gap between the two consoles from 12,000 units two weeks ago, to just under 6,000 units this week.

The Wii is showing the least resilience of all systems in the current slump in the Japanese hardware market, seeing sales slump 96,000 since the beginning of the year.

It's not all doom and gloom in the Nintendo camp however, as sales of the DSi rose by 4,000 units, perhaps suggesting that the market for the Wii is starting to become saturated.
