Gaming Industry Falls Short in 2010; Xbox 360 and Kinect Skyrockets

Written on January 18, 2011 by Chris Martin

1 person

Xbox 360 and Kinect sales skyrocketed as they inch closer to the perennial winner, the Nintendo Wii. But even as the Microsoft console goes up, the entire industry starts to falter.

NPD reported last week that the video game industry didn’t do so well in 2010 despite huge hardware and software launches plus the emergence of extra-retail sources such as digital distribution and social games. Xbox 360 and Kinect sales on the other hand have skyrocketed threatening Nintendo Wii’s dominance, but wasn’t enough to compensate for the loss of the industry for the year.

Video Game Related Sicknesses and How to Avoid Them

Written on January 02, 2011 by Chris Martin

3 persons

Although we did discuss before that video games actually improve real life skills, there are some rare instances where video games, particularly third or first person games can cause or trigger sicknesses.

I remember the first time I got my first video game related sickness, it was the time when I was playing a third-person game called Shrek (I was 10 back then, okay?) on my Playstation. Thanks to the low resolution and ugly motion controls, my head hurted like hell and had to stop and close my eyes for an hour until the pain drifted away. It did for a moment, but the headache continued later at night which made me retire for the day prematurely. There goes my Final Fantasy 9 grind.

Although we did discuss before that video games actually improve real life skills, there are some instances where video games, particularly third or first person games can cause or trigger sicknesses. There was a surge one time in America where the media blamed video games as a cause for children and adult’s epilepsy and seizures.

AllWeLike iPad Game of the Year: Angry Birds

Written on January 01, 2011 by Chris Martin

2 persons

It has hit 42 million downloads in a span of only a year and it's already on Apple's most downloaded app for 2010. How can we NOT ignore those bushy eyebrowed balls of feathers they call birds who are hellbent on taking back their eggs from evil pigs?

They’re feathery, they’re round, they got the features of a bird, and they’ve got eyebrows that says they’re dead serious. These are the birds that nabbed our merciless fingers away from our daily lives and into the iPad tablet so we can spend hours and hours of gameplay. And what better way to get some revenge than sling them into the air as human (or aviary) sacrifices in order to defeat the relentless evil… wait for it… PIGS. Yes, we’re all hooked with Angry Bird-noia.

Sayonara to Freedom of Speech in Tokyo?

Written on December 13, 2010 by Chris Martin

1 person

Tokyo legislation recently passed a bill that might jeopardize the freedom of speech video games, manga, and anime producers have. The issue has been going on since the start of 2010, and this new bill just fanned the flames.

Dan Kunimitsu, a famous Japanese blogger expressed that the current legislation is not a “ban per se”, but it does limit a company to produce materials that are harmful to those under 18 years-old. Unlike in the U.S., where distributors are the ones under pressure and subject to penalty, not the producers.

What’s odd about this new act by the government is that the legislation specifically restricts anime, manga and video games but doesn’t transcend to novels, movies, or television shows. A little unfair considering that the latter are also easily accessed by minors. Tokyo government tries to calm the storm as they explain through The Mainichi Daily News, “only manga and animation that glorifies or exaggerates illegal sexual acts will be subject to the regulations, and freedom of expression will not be violated.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops Achieves Record-Breaking Sales

Written on November 15, 2010 by R. Depp

2 persons

Never mind the discrepancy on the initial estimate of Activision about the sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops. The more important thing is the video game made history by selling 5.6 million copies in the span of 24 hours.

Activision made the wrong assessment that Call of Duty: Black Ops would not reach the  success of the franchise Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. But that is the last thing the company need to think about after earning $360 million dollars within 24 hours.

The game made a mark in the video game entertainment history after selling 5.6 million copies in the first day. It shattered the record of Modern Warfare 2 which has recorder 4.7 million copies sold within 24 hours.

The company already is making ways to attend to the huge demand of the people. Add to that the full steam of upcoming sales for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the holiday season.

EA Games Unleashed for Windows Phone 7

Written on October 12, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

Last weekend, Microsoft made a big mistake in putting Angry Birds in their ads. This made Rovio a little bit upset. Today, EA Games released the games that will be included in Windows Phone 7. But still WP7 needs a alert third party apps and games to gain victory over Android and Apple.

EA is a titan when it comes to video games. And now they make a bigger step towards game supremecy with a support on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform. The big plus? Let’s say an Xbox Live-enabled game starting 2010.

The first few titles of EA Mobile are The Sims 3, Tetris, Monopoly and Need for Speed Undercover.

All of these are franchises on existing mobile phones so it is not exclusive to Windows phone 7. But the Xbox Live online gaming network stays as an advantage. Even if Apple quite made it at Game Center, still WP7 is more tasty to game developers and gamers themselves. All EA games will support the Xbox Achievements. This includes badges and goals awarded for a job well done. These will add to your game score shared in between Windows Phone 7, Games for Windows and Xbox 360 games.

But surely WP7 should atleast have a third party apps in order to level with Android and iPhone.

Are you excited for the Windows Phone 7?
