PlayStation 3 is the Best Selling Gaming Console in Japan

200°
295w ago - Sony must be pretty pleased with its performance on its home market and thinking about how it could replicate it all over the world.

The PlayStation 3 has become the best selling gaming platform in Japan, probably because of the release of the Blu-ray version of the Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children movie, which is packed with a demo version of the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII.

The PlayStation 3 has seen an increase of 42,000 units in sales, to reach 62,527, a number normally reserved for the Nintendo DS or for the PlayStation Portable. The Advent Children Blu-ray movie sold more than 270,000 units in its first week on shelves, which is extremely impressive compared with the best sold videogame of the week, which only moved 142,000 units.

The Nintendo DS is in second place, selling 44,725 units as the phasing out of the DS Lite, which is being replaced by the DSi, continues. The PlayStation Portable saw a dip in sales of less than 1,000 units, reaching just over 40,000 to stay in third place.

Worryingly for Nintendo, the Wii is also continuing its descending trend, with the home console only selling around 13,000 units, which is about 2,000 down from last week. It's now in fourth place, just ahead of the Xbox 360, which sold 8,652 units in one week. There are over 8 million Wiis...

RE5 Producer: Wii Isn't Best Choice for Powerful & Pretty Games

250°
304w ago - Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi has noted that the Nintendo Wii isn't the best choice for any game which is powerful and pretty.

He added that the team is happy that they chose the Xbox 360 and PS3 for the game rather than go with the Wii.

To quote: A few months ago, Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi claimed that the Wii would be unable to handle the title screen of Resident Evil 5.

Now most recently, Takeuchi has once again discussed Resident Evil 5 and has explained why the game isn't being released for the Wii. He says that the development team was looking to create "the most powerful, most pretty game" and "the Wii isn't the best choice."

"When we set out to make 'Resident Evil 5,' the guys knew that if you want to make the most powerful, most pretty game, the Wii isn't the best choice. From a business perspective it may have been, but after making this game we are happy with the choice we made."
 

God of War 3 is the Best Looking Game on Sony's PS3 to Date!

500°
305w ago - Apparently, the geniuses at Sony Santa Monica have done it again. The studio managed to create a God of War iteration that has made David Jaffe proud.

The studio released some pictures of the game recently and it looks phenomenal. However, the big question on everyone's mind is - does it play well?

God of War III (GOW3) may be one of the most anticipated games on the PS3. Sony revealed GOW3 during last E3 after much speculation that a next gen version was in the works. The fact that there was the God of War logo with a big number three on the back of the booklet for Chains of Olympus helped clue gamers in on this secret.

The guys over at Kotaku recently had the opportunity to watch GOW3 in action and they seem to be pretty excited about the game. One of the writers commented that GOW3 is more beautiful than any PS3 game to date.

Apparently, not only does the game look 'beautiful,' but the scale is enormous. According to the game director, Stig Asmussen, one of the levels from God of War on the PS2 could fit inside the palm of the titan's hand shown in the E3 trailer for GOW3.

The gameplay has also been revamped as well. Kratos can now switch weapons real-time on the fly. This means that while hacking away with the armblades, Kratos can now...
