Can the XBox 360 really Beat the PS3 and Wii in the Console War?

200°
327w ago - The Wii, PS3, and XBox 360 are currently engaged in one of the fiercest and bloodiest console wars ever, with a winner yet to be declared. With all three home consoles still in the running, how can you expect to pick a victor?

This generation of consoles is like no past generation in one important way: it's almost impossible to pick a winner. Sure, the Wii is selling like hotcakes and currently has the lead, but both the Xbox 360 and PS3 are still selling in fair numbers month on month around the world. So how on earth do you choose which console will prove victorious at this (relatively) early stage of proceedings?

Don Reisinger writes The Digital Home, a column on CNet which looks at the state of technology in and around the house. He thinks he can predict the future, and did so in an article titled 'The Xbox 360 should win this console war'. I note he used "should" rather than "will", which is a classic case of hedging your best in case you're wrong.

In the article, Reisinger states the case for the Xbox 360 proving to be the ultimate victor in the current gen console war. This is despite the Wii currently caning the opposition in every single (sales) department, and the Xbox 360 consistently battling...

MotorStorm PSP Confirmed as Listing Error

100°
327w ago - When gamers catch glimpse of a game that hasn't been announced it's cause for much excitement. When a PSP version of MotorStorm appeared on UK retailer GAME's Web site Sony fans thought they'd stumbled upon something they weren't supposed to know about, but it seems we've all got excited over nothing.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com this morning, a Sony Computer Entertainment Europe spokesperson has confirmed that the listing is a mistake and that it will be removed shortly. So there you go.

Maybe the fan excitement over the listing will give Sony a reason to consider bringing the MotorStorm series to PSP in the future, but it's not happening just yet.

MotorStorm: Pacific Rift is scheduled for release on PS3 later this year.
 

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for PS2 US Release Confirmed

400°
327w ago - Update: This morning we have been in touch with Square-Enix Europe in an attempt to confirm a European release of the PS2 remake of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, originally a GBA title.

We reported yesterday that Square-Enix USA has confirmed to managers at the Gamestop Convention that the game will be landing this fall with a budget price.

Confimation of a UK and EU release is at this moment in the words of a Square-Enix rep "tbc." The representative went on to state that they were "unaware" of any plans to bring the game to EU shores, and that it would be "near impossible before Christmas." It was noted that since a US release was happening, a European equivalent would "Probably happen", even if it is a limited release similar to the GBA Final Fantasy remakes.

It seems an international release is unlikely. Europeans should begin praying to the release god now that they see Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories PS2 in 2009.

Square-Enix have revealed to managers at this week's Gamestop Manager Conference that they will be releasing Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for PS2 this Holiday season in the USA.

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories is a PS2 3D remake of the Game Boy Advance spinoff title that takes place between Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II. The...
