Video: Patapon 2 Hero for Sony's PlayStation Portable

50°
297w ago - SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda shared the following this weekend via PlayStation Blog:

One of the new great features of Patapon 2 is the great masked warrior Hero Patapon.

Hero Patapon is a mythical creature (like a yeti, but cuter and real-er), with magical powers and a heart of gold. His fighting skills are second to none and it's rumored that he beat Chuck Norris in a staring contest (with one eye!).

True this: he is the most powerful Patapon in the WORLD!

So your question is: how do you tap into this awesomeness and channel his amazing-ness into complete Karmen oblivion? Well friends, I have two syllables for you: fe-ver.





That's right, Fever Mode, the magic point in time when your rhythmic prowess sets the Patapons into a frenzy is also the time when Hero Patapons special abilities come to shine. So here is how it will work: lets say you are headed down a jungle, spear in hand chanting Pata-Pata-Pata-Pon (march command) to you heart's delight...and then you see a Kachidonga in the distance...and you strike Pon-Pon-Pata-Pon (attack command).

Under normal conditions, this would set of a hail of spears and arrows from your troops, and if you are in Fever Mode, the hail would blacken...

Sony's PlayStation 3 Outsells the Nintendo Wii in Japan

200°
297w ago - Sony's PlayStation 3 has outsold Nintendo's Wii console in Japan for the first time in 16 months.

To quote: Last month, Sony shifted 146,948 units of the PS3 compared to 99,335 Wiis, reported publishing firm Enterbrain.

While some suggest it could signal the end of Nintendo's dominance, others think it is unlikely that the PS3 will threaten the Wii's popularity globally.

Meanwhile, Nintendo's revamped DSi console sold 92,000 units in the UK during its first weekend of sales. It makes it the fourth biggest ever console launch.

Experts see the dominance of the PS3 during March as a temporary blip rather than a sign of Nintendo's decline.

Microsoft however only shifted 43,172 units of its Xbox 360 during the same period. Games such as Resident Evil 5 and the latest version of action adventure Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 are credited with driving demand for the PS3 in Japan.

But Wii sales remain extremely buoyant. During March global sales of Nintendo's Wii console passed 50 million, making the Wii the fastest-selling games console in history, surpassing the PlayStation 2.

"PS3 hardware sales picked up due to brisk-selling software. But I don't see any drastic change in the industry landscape," Okasan Securities analyst Masashi Morita told the AFP news...
