    Pachter: Publishers need to charge for online play

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 July 2010

     It's only a matter of time, I think the only reason it's not already the standard is the question of 'how'. Will it be $10 a month to play COD? Will it be spread over all Activision games? Will it be just pay to play tournaments with prizes? etc.  I personally think we'll see a month subscription to a publishers network service, say $10 a month to join EAlive or something. For that we...

    Rumor: Rockstar Lays Off 40 From Red Dead Redemption Studio

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 July 2010

     Games always finish with more staff then they start with, so naturally with RDR now out they'll cut the numbers down.  The game was a developement mess mind you, had delay after delay, needs 5 million to break even... so chances are there was plenty of fat that needed trimming anyway. You can't **** up developement on that scale and not have cuts, some people simply didn't do a good...

    How good is SOCOM confrontation today!?! ( on a scale from 1 - 10 )

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 July 2010

     No where near as good as other Socom's, still enjoyable for people new to the series though I'm sure.   I'd personally say wait until Socom 4 as I really didn't like Confrontation in the end, but for $15 you can't go wrong tbh. Recommend looking for a headset bundle though....

    I don't think Sony *gets* the PSP

    in Sony Discussion on 12 July 2010

     In my opinion Sony just didn't really know what the handheld market wanted, so they took the ideology of what made the PS2 a success (Up the graphics, make 'big' epic games etc) and applied it to the PSP. But it didn't really work and people didn't really care for that experience on a handheld. I think Sony have learnt their lesson in that regard for the next PSP though. The other thing is...

    Game Musings: You don't need to play a game to judge only its story.

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 July 2010

     I don't think you can pass valid judgement if your method of judging the story is completely different to that which it is intended.  For example, FFXIII is a story intended to unfold over a 40 hour playthrough type adventure, presented in cut scenes, writing and gameplay. There's no way you can judge the whole story by reading a Wikipedia summary - even if you understand it - simply...

    The recognition of Faults and Recovery of the JRPG

    in Gaming Discussion on 07 July 2010

     In terms of sales I think the decline is simply that the people who bought JRPG's grew up. They're now 20 something adults with jobs, relationships, families, social lives etc to attend to and the idea of playing a 40 hour epic adventure is just not feasible. I certainly don't have time for JRPG's until my summer holiday from uni...  And whereas the JRPG 'boom' in the west got tons of...

    Bad news for Sony, good News for Nintendo

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 July 2010

     As it currently stands I think 3d TV's aren't even aimed at anyone like us, they're priced and positioned in such a way as to just cater for an 'elite' group of early adopters with more money then they know what to do with. Sure enough it's  not the mass market but there is a significient nishe who will simply pay whatever the hell Sony, Samsung, Panasonic et all choose and it wouldn't...

    Pachter: Industry in permanent decline

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 July 2010

    Pyro as Bill said: Yeah because the multiplayer in Wii Sports really hurt Mario Kart Wii which in turn damaged Wii Sports Resort sales, right? Poor NSMB Wii had to compete with all the above which is why it hasn't beat MW2 combined yet. Nintendo are so stupid for releasing multiplayer games. Hopefully they realise their mistakes soon so that they can sell more software. They also need to start...

    Why is their a news piece about NSMB being fastest game to 15 million?

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 July 2010

     MW2 on Ps3 and 360 is the same game imo, same engine, same dev team, same content, same experience, same absolutely everything except one is on a DVD and one is on a Blu-Ray disc. End of the day to Activision, and in any possible sales tracking way you combine the sales, cause the budgets are one, the games are one and they are marketed, released and promoted as one :/.  But that's not...

    Sony: We ôLegitimized [Gaming] As A Form Of Entertainment!

    in Sony Discussion on 02 July 2010

     I've never known the PS1 to have expanded much or changed alot, as far as I'm aware all that happened is everyone who previous had a NES, or SNES, or Genesis bought a PS1. Yeah the userbase was older, but that was cause it was 4 years since we got our SNES for Christmas...  You can see today that Sony (And now Microsofts) market is pretty much those now full-time job people who grew up...

    EMEAA Up - 26th June 2010

    in Sales Discussion on 30 June 2010

     Good numbers for DS without much promotion, just some priority shelf spacing has got it off to 40000 or so.  I've no idea what Activision are doing with Singularity, good reviews thus far but the game has been treated like Shellshock II or Rogue Warrior :/. I follow games and didn't have a clue it was released yet or anything lol. Should be able to pick it up for a tenner soon if it...

    Monster Hunter Tri - How did it do sales wise?

    in Sales Discussion on 28 June 2010

     This game here in the UK got as much promotion (TV ads, 'priority' shelf space, Nintendo Magazine covers) as any first party Nintendo game and doesn't seem to have set the sales charts alight like those. Any game with that much put behind it should fair better in my opinion, albeit perhaps the majority of those EU figures are for the UK and it was just forgotten outside of the...

    Final Fantasy XIII On Xbox 360 Being Phased Out By UK Retailers

    in Gaming Discussion on 28 June 2010

     The problem here is the use of the term 'phasing out'. Like they're getting rid of it or something. They're not, they're just discounting a game which isn't selling alot per week and there is an abundance of stock, something very common in the UK with almost all games and which will inevitably (And already is) happen to the PS3 version.  There is no story here, except a games retailer...

    Visceral Games, will they be one of the next on EAs chopping block?

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 June 2010

     Visceral are very talented so I'd imagine EA won't want to lose them. Making new gaming IP's that EA themselves wholly own is quite simply something they've never had, and so even if it takes 5 years for Dead Space, Dante's Inferno etc to establish themselves as incredibly profitable big-sellers then it's a price worth paying, and I'm sure EA budgeted in that way. It's very common for...

    Can Reach outsell every PS3 exclusive combined in the Americas in 2010?

    in Sales Discussion on 27 May 2010

    With whats announced it has a chance, but I think Christmas will get one more shooter that could do 1.5m+ like Uncharted 2 last year. Probably Resistance 3. No chance with all the move stuff either, as that'll amount to a decent number of exclusives....
