PS3 outsold Xbox 360 in February, says Pachter 50°
March 10, 2008 // 11:26 pm - Wedbush Morgan's Michael Pachter has told videogaming247 that his firm expects that PS3 outsold Xbox 360 in February, ahead of the release of NPD data on Thursday. PS3's lead over the Microsoft machine, Pachter reasoned, was due to continuing supply issues for Xbox 360.

His view is in contradiction to The simExchange's prediction that 360 had moved ahead of PS3 in February.

"We expect February U.S. retail video game console software sales data to be released after market close on Thursday, March 13. We forecast sales of $575 million, 27% compared to last year's $454...


MLB 2K8 vs MLB 08: The Show! 50°
March 9, 2008 // 11:23 pm - While I've previously gone through my initial impressions of MLB 2K8 and MLB 08: The Show, I figured it would be interesting to match the two games up in different categories and determine which came out on top.

Of course those with only a 360 don't have a choice in the matter, but it's important to know what is being done well and what isn't both on their own individual terms as well as competitively for the future of these franchises.

The two games headed into release taking completely different paths. 2K8 dramatically changed the central mechanics and practically hid...


Xbox 360 Intercoolers: Yay nor Nay? 250°
March 9, 2008 // 11:22 pm - Every video gamer who owns a next-gen console lives with the constant worry in the back of their mind that their marvelous console is going to "explode" unexpectedly. Weather it be a Playstation 3, Xbox 360, or even a Wii, the most likely cause of a console's death is usually overheating. Such is generally the cause of Playstation 3 malfunctions and Xbox 360's infamous red rings of death.

If there is one thing marketing strategists know about sales, it is that fear is an excelent purchase motivator. In response to gamers' fears about their systems overheating intercoolers have...

March 9, 2008 // 11:21 pm - Samsung's Spinpoint M6 is the world's first 2.5-inch, 500GB HDD. Standing in at 9.5mm tall, the M6 will easily fit most existing laptop hard drive bays.

A Free-Fall Sensor can be added as an optional extra. Not content with breaking the world record for the HDD with the smallest size / biggest capacity, Samsung are also introducing the industry's fastest DVD burner.

Lost Odyssey: fixing a hole for XBox 360 50°
March 9, 2008 // 11:21 pm - Lost Odyssey makes me mad. I shouldn't let it get to me, but I can't help it. I was provoked. 4 discs and 50 hours of hackneyed storytelling punctuated by ponderous cutscenes, fatuous characters, insipid dialogue, and derivative gameplay.

The game is worse than bad. It's bad dressed up as portentous. It's a place you've already been, with deeds you've already done, accompanied by music you've already heard - all "made possible only by the power of Xbox 360."

Why did it have to be this way?

Lost Odyssey is what happens when the primary objective driving...


Another contender emerges in DVD-format war 50°
March 9, 2008 // 11:19 pm - No sooner has the battle for the next-generation high-definition DVD format ended, with Blu-ray triumphing over HD DVD, than a new contender has emerged.

A new system that is incompatible with Blu-ray, called HD VMD, for versatile multilayer disc, is trying to find a niche. New Medium Enterprises, the London company behind HD VMD, says its system's quality is equal to Blu-ray's, but it costs less. By undercutting the competition in production, replication and hardware costs, it thinks it can find a market among consumers with less disposable income, particularly outside the United...


The Making of Japan's First RPG 50°
March 9, 2008 // 3:25 pm - Defining the Japanese videogame market was no easy task for the man who introduced the country to the RPG.

Henk Rogers arrived in Japan in 1976, young, jobless and hot on the tail of a girl. Within eight years he'd have written, designed and coded his first videogame, sold Japan a genre that would go on to dominate its videogame industry creating billions of dollars of worldwide revenue, and, naturally, made the girl his wife. In 12 years, he would discover a game called Tetris at a Las Vegas game show, and would travel to Russia with Nintendo to secure the exclusive rights to market...


Have the Big Three Learned from the Saturn's Mistake? 50°
March 8, 2008 // 4:03 pm - When I originally proposed this story, I called it "The Saturnization of PlayStation 3" because I saw some striking parallels between the way SEGA handled its ill-fated Saturn game console and the way Sony's been handling its PS3. Of late, though, Sony has shown signs of reasonable intelligence.

While working on the backstory of this article, I became aware that the real analogies are not between SEGA and Sony; they are between Microsoft and SEGA.

History repeats?

When I first mentioned my story idea to John Taylor, a savvy videogames analyst working for Arcadia...
