Confirmed: God Of War 3 Hits March 2010 for PlayStation 3

250°
290w ago - Gamestop sources have unveiled an e-mail sent to them by Sony that state March 2010 is the current (estimated) release date for God Of War 3 for the PS3.

This may come to many as a disappointment, but not for me. I see this as extra time for Sony to polish up a great title that is already looking outstanding from the few trailers out so far.

I see this a better opportunity for us gamers to get the full experience from a game; there already is a bunch of great Sony titles coming out in 09 and not to mention the multiplatform titles as well.

I like buying all hot titles on launch day even if I haven't beat the previous game played, its just in my nature. I will give the newer games a test run, but quickly return to my previous game to finish it. I don't like doing it like that, so its good to see space between all these titles to be released in 09.

On a side note, Killzone 2 sets off the PS3 for 2009, just as GoW 3 will set it off in 2010. Killzone 2 has jumped from sales rank of 40th to 7th to 1st on overal video game sales which according to amazon represents a 1900% increase.

The Increase percentage from 2nd to 1st shows at as 600% increase. It has even bested the likes of Wii Fit, yesterday it was in second place, and I wouldn't be surprised if it took the...

Bejeweled 2 Coming to Sony's PlayStation Network

50°
290w ago - Today PopCap Games Vice President of Video Game Platforms Greg Canessa announced that Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) and PopCap have teamed up to bring hit casual game titles to PSN and PlayStation 3 as follows:

Our first title is none other than the classic online puzzle game Bejeweled 2. Many of you may be familiar with the franchise - it has won dozens of awards and has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.

It's our biggest franchise at PopCap and our most successful title, which is why we chose Bejeweled 2 as our first title for PSN and PS3. The game is a natural fit for the platform - it plays great, looks great and is as compelling as ever.

And there is a ton of gameplay in Bejeweled 2 - four different game modes, more than 60 puzzles, power-ups, high-definition graphics and much more. And if you're like me, you'll sit there for hours playing late into the night, wondering why you're unable to pull yourself away!

The team at SOE has been fantastic to work with, and they share our vision of making the best versions of our games possible, with features that are specific to the PS3 platform.

For Bejeweled 2, that means exclusive stuff like Trophy support and PSP remote play, which you'll only find on PSN. We've got similar exclusive...
 

Sony PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 Worldwide Sales Equal in 2008

100°
290w ago - Sony's PlayStation 3 sold less in the third quarter of 2008 (ie. the Oct-Dec holiday season) than in 2007, but the strength of the console's earlier sales did it proud, shipping 10.77 million in 2008 (up from 2007's 8.85 million).

In contrast, Microsoft's Xbox 360 had a huge holiday season, shipping around 6 million consoles worldwide (a record for the Xbox), but had a weaker sales period earlier in the year: the playing field has been levelled.

The PlayStation 3 shipped around 10.77 million and the Xbox 360 also shipped 10.8 million: a dead heat. As for life-time sales, the Xbox 360 is at 28.45 million and the PlayStation 3 at 21.35 million - a slightly tighter gap than Microsoft's announced 8 million.

On average the PlayStation 3 has sold 2.37 million units per quarter, in comparison to the Xbox 360's 2.18 million. Still without a PS3 price cut, Microsoft's console will surely pull away in 2009.

As for Nintendo's Wii, it's solidified first place by selling an outstanding 4.99 million units per quarter. Find the numbers below:

SHIPPED Q3 2008 (Oct-Dec 2008)

PlayStation 3: 4.46m
Wii: 10.42m
Xbox 360: 6.0m
PlayStation 2: 2.52m
NDS: 11.89m
PSP: 5.08m

SHIPPED 2008

PlayStation 3: 10.77m
 

Does the Sony PlayStation 3 Need a Price Drop NOW?

550°
290w ago - The obvious answer anybody would give you is yes. However if Sony isn't careful Nintendo could knock them out of the race with this drop in price.

How is this? Well the Wii is obviously underpriced, but we don't know by how much.

Lets say it costs 80 dollars to make a Wii, if Sony decided to lower the PS3 to $299 in the U.S. and Nintendo sees this they could drop the Wii to $120, Halving their price and virtually make the PS3 price drop a whimper.

What can Sony do about this? Either drop the price now, or wait until August or November. If Nintendo drops their price give it 3 months, then they should drop theirs.

So basically it's a game of chicken. If Sony Waits too long they will lose their chance, but if they move too soon Nintendo will follow and cause them to lose.
