200°
110w ago - Today Nintendo's president Satoru Iwata confirmed Wii U specs (PDF) during a Japanese presentation alongside Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime discussing the Wii U retail bundles release date, pricing, specifications and launch software.

Below are the details and video, as follows:

The Nintendo Wii U will launch in the US on November 18, 2012 for $299.99 for the basic 8GB version and $349.99 for the deluxe 32GB version that comes complete with extra accessories and the Nintendo Land video game.

In Europe Nintendo's Wii U handheld will launch on November 30, and in Japan the Wii U will launch on December 8, 2012 costing 26,250 Yen for the basic model and 31,000 Yen for the premium model and will also have 8GB and 32GB capacity respectively.

This storage will be used for game saves, game data, and other content downloaded from the Nintendo Network. Wii U game discs will be 25GB each so by the looks of it game installs won't be possible, well not on launch at least. Both SKUs will include HDMI cables an AC adapters for the console and Wii U Gamepad. The Wii U measures 46 mm x 172 mm x 268.5 mm horizontally, it can also be placed vertically.

Insomniac Games Lights the Fuse, Formerly Known as Overstrike

50°
110w ago - Insomniac Games Creative Director Brian Allgeier has announced today that they are lighting the Fuse, a title that was formerly known as Overstrike.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone! After a long journey navigating the sometimes-challenging waters of new IP development, we're proud to reveal Fuse.

Fuse, formerly known as Overstrike, is a third person, four-player cooperative game that centers around a volatile energy source that has fallen into the wrong hands.

The substance, called Fuse, has been acquired by a terrorist organization known as Raven and Overstrike 9 has been hired to track down and stop it from setting off a deadly arms race.

You can play with up to three of your friends, and each member of Overstrike 9 has its own signature Fuse-powered weapon. Play as Dalton Brooks, an ex-mercenary who has a Mag-shield that acts as portable cover and unleashes a devastating blast that liquefies opponents.

Take on the role of Naya Deveraux, who can cloak to flank enemies and fire out mini-black holes that implode its victims. As Jacob Kimble, you can keep enemies at a distance with the Arc Shot and shoot out charged bolts that chain react and fry enemies.

Then there's Izzy Sinclair, who can either launch out med beacons to heal teammates...
 

Sony Adds More Titles to PlayStation Store Retro Games PSN Sale

50°
110w ago - Sony's Andy Stewart of the PlayStation Store Team has announced the addition of more titles to their PS Store Retro Games PSN sale today!

To quote: Hello everybody. I hope you are all enjoying our current Retro Sale.

Just a quick update - I have been listening to all your comments and have got some more deals for you! See below for the full list of additions.

Now you will notice that Resident Evil 2 is on the list but be warned, this DOES NOT currently work on the PS Vita. We are aware of the issue and are trying to fix it - hopefully it will work on the PS Vita soon but I don't have an ETA yet.

Once the game has been fixed you will be able to re-download the game for PS Vita, but for now you can only purchase it through your PS3. Sorry to disappoint with this but I will see if we can replicate the offer once it is working for PS Vita - though I can't make any promises.

I recommend buying it now on the PS3 (if you have one) for the future to avoid disappoint on missing this sale opportunity.

These discounts will start on Wednesday 12th September once the weekly store update has happened. All offers will end on 19th September....
 

Egg Ball Games: Jazz: Trump's Journey Jives on PS Vita This Winter

50°
111w ago - Egg Ball Games Marketing and Communication Manager Aurelie Gerault has announced today that Jazz: Trump's Journey will jive onto PS Vita this coming Winter!

To quote: It's Aurelie here from [Register or Login to view links] to unveil Jazz: Trump's Journey, our first downloadable PS Vita title, co-produced with [Register or Login to view links].

Supported by the CNC (French National Organism of Cinema) and awarded the 2012 Best Video Game of the Year prize by the French Ministry of Culture, our game immerses the player in the memories of Trump - in his dreams as a young, star-struck jazz musician in love with the lovely Lady Poppy.

Presenting a daring parallel with the real story of jazz legend Louis Armstrong, you'll relive Trump's life, through his quest to form a jazz group, through his love affair and through his battle against injustice in New Orleans in the early 20th century.

We think the original scenario is the main strength of the game - no platformer has dealt with this sort of theme before. Egg Ball's aim was to talk about the creation of jazz and the people responsible.

All of the team here are very fond of Louis Armstrong, his music and his life. They get really inspired by his art and his approach...
