Nintendo Takes More than 59% of Total Market Share for Week 7

50°
297w ago - Japan: The latest hardware data has been released and Nintendo has taken 59% total market share or better for the seventh week in a row.

DSi (173k) and DSL (31k) combine to sell two hundred thousand, and the Wii (91.6k) vaulted to almost one hundred thousand units.

Sony's three systems all had modest gains from the previous week, with the PSP hitting 71.k and the PS3 hitting 33.7k, and the not-yet-forgotten PS2 still selling more than 6k.

The 360 brings in the rear for this-gen hardware at 11.8k.
 

Fact or Fiction: Final Fantasy XIII's 2009 Release Date And More!

50°
297w ago - Once again, John Curry and Rod Oracheski are back to tell us what they think about some of the week's most important video game news and issues. To quote:

Fact or Fiction: Final Fantasy XIII will come out in 2009.

John Curry: Fact

I want to say fiction. God, I hope the Final Fantasy series dies a slow and painful death so that I can laugh at it for all times, but the truth is that there is still a group of diehard freaks out there who are as loyal to the FF series as the Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering nerds and will force the release of Final Fantasy XIII in the next year.

When that happens, be prepared to listen to all of them whine about why it isn't a PS3 exclusive and, more importantly, how all of those who review the game are idiots because they didn't state that the game was the greatest thing ever made.

Rod Oracheski: Fact

It seems to be on track for the Japanese release, and I can't see the localization taking all that long. They've gotten pretty good at it over the years, at least on the speed side of things (there are still the odd wonky translations here and there). Will Versus XIII make it out in 2009? That one I'm not sure I'd bet on.

Fact or Fiction: The Spike Video Game Awards show is starting...
 

Sony: PlayStation 3 Console is Not Just for Games Anymore

200°
298w ago - Sony's PlayStation 3 Marketing Manager Kim Nguyen announced that starting tonight their Video Delivery Service campaign officially launches, with our first airing on Monday Night Football.

To quote: When the Video Delivery Service launched on July 15th, we broadened our content offering to include TV shows and movies to make the PS3 the total entertainment package.

With nearly 1000 full-length movies and 2700 TV episodes for download onto the PS3 or PSP, the Video Delivery Service brings you digital entertainment right into your living room (popcorn not included). So check out great titles like The Dark Knight, Hancock, Iron Man, Family Guy, and much more.





The TV spot uses humor to convey that the PS3 is not just a gaming machine but also a "movie downloading machine" when a guy tries to win over his skeptical girlfriend.

You'll have to watch the TV spot to find out how this classic guy vs. girl face-off plays out to see who wins in the end.
 

Free Resistance 2 PS3 Themes, R:FOM Map Packs, and More!

50°
298w ago - Insomniac Games Community Manager Bryan Intihar shared the following today on the PlayStation Blog:

We know what some of you are thinking: "Well, Resistance 2 has shipped–I betcha Insomniac is sitting back, cracking a cold one, and taking it easy 'til after the holidays." In the words of ESPN college football analyst Lee Corso: NOT so fast, my friend!

We've been on the message boards reading your Resistance 2 feedback, letting it soak in, and working diligently on patches (Yes, more updates are on the way, and no, I don't have a definitive date for the next patch. But trust me–it's in the works). We also have some really cool new community features coming to MyResistance.net over the next few weeks. Expect another blog post soon with more details.





New Resistance 2 Trailer: Free PS3 themes and map packs won't be the only reason to visit the PlayStation Store on 12/11. We've also cut a new Resistance 2 trailer, which features some really epic moments from the game. I'd say it's my favorite trailer we've put together for this title.

Now, since this is the holiday season, we figured it was time to provide you with some Resistance-related gifts that won't do any damage...
