Sony Charges At Kinect Again With New Move Website

Sony hasn’t been afraid to tell Microsoft how it is when it comes to motion controllers, they’ve done it in their ads, the internet, and even press conferences. With the new official PlayStation Move site that recently launched, Sony shows not much of a sign at stopping either. The website gives a bunch of rather hilarious but factual points about Sony’s upcoming motion controller with Kevin Butler plastered all over.

There are many pages of the website that go hard on the Kinect with things like a somewhat questionable checklist in some categories. There is also a hilarious page that tells why it’s important that the Move and any motion controller has buttons, with many obvious Kinect references in the mix. This has been going for quite some time and Microsoft hasn’t said much in return, do you think Microsoft will eventually fight back at Sony?

Sunday’s This or That – “Old-School or New-School”

Sunday’s This or That – “Old-School or New-School”

So this week’s poll simply asks, what do you enjoy doing the most, do you rather playing single-player stories on video games or would you rather play some multiplayer matches online with your friends. Think about this one a little bit because even though you may play online a lot, you may still enjoy those single-player experiences that you’ve come to know and love a little more than multiplayer or the opposite, your choice. So, a good single-player story, or multiplayer game matches? Share in the comments section why you prefer what you chose.

July’s NPD Numbers Are In!

Hey, better late than never to post this, right? So anyway, I am usually the one to post these and since school just started I have just been somewhat busy and was not able to post these numbers any time that I remembered to do so, for that I am deeply sorry. Anyway in July you will see that the new Xbox 360 seemed to have quite the effect on sales because this month the 360 is leading the pack and you will never believe it but the Wii came in third place, I know! In July, the top game in first and second place on 360 and PS3 respectively is EA’s NCAA Football 11. The numbers are below!

  1. Xbox 360            444,000 SOLD        9K  ( -2%)
  2. Nintendo DS         398,000 SOLD      113K  (-22%)
  3. Nintendo Wii        254,000 SOLD      169K  (-40%)
  4. PlayStation 3       215,000 SOLD       90K  (-30%)

Community: PlayStation Plus, Is It Worth It? – My Take

Community: PlayStation Plus, Is It Worth It? – My Take

So I passed a forum post and couldn’t help but noticed it was worked on too hard to not get noticed by everyone, so here you go. I’ll keep my eyes on the forums and If anything else like this is written, I may post it up guys.

“I dislike PlayStation Plus. Sony tried pulling a marketing scheme which in all honesty isn’t that clever and that’s what initially soured my take on it. Let’s take a look at what it offers point-for-point. (SOURCE)

SOCOM 4 Release Pushed Back to 2011

SOCOM 4 Release Pushed Back to 2011

SOCOM 4 has gained much attention over time since it was announced a few months back, the game will be made by Zipper interactive, unlike SOCOM: Confrontation, which was plagued with serious connection and network problems when released, So even though this game is being delayed, this is mainly why. Zipper Interactive is delaying the game to avoid that very reason it seems.

Senior community manager Jeremy Dunham had to say, “While we’re certainly aware that you’ve been looking forward to playing SOCOM 4 this year, we don’t want to take any shortcuts. Instead, we want to deliver the best and most immersive SOCOM game we possibly can and we’re going to use our extra time to do just that.” So the game will be released now in 2011, no specific time range in 2011, just sometime next year. Although it will probably be in a time range that wont conflict with a Call of Duty game or Killzone 3 next year.

Sony Profits As PS3 Sales Double

Sony Profits As PS3 Sales Double

Finally, it looks like Sony has returned to profitability today. The company recorded net profits of 25.7 billion yen during its fiscal first quarter, up from the 37.1 billion yen loss it suffered last year during the same time period.

Sony was able to reduce its loses this year to just 3.8 billion yen, a significant improvement from the 36.7 billion yen loss the year before.

The PS3 was a major contributing factor to the turnaround, Sony said. PS3 hardware for the quarter hit 2.4 million units sold worldwide, up from 1.1 million the prior quarter. PS3 software sales also nearly doubled with 24.8 million units sold, up from 14.8 million.

PSP sales dropped in the quarter to 1.2 million from 1.3 million, while its software sales saw an increase to 9.2 million units from 8.3 million.

Sony is forecasting 15 million PlayStation 3 units sold worldwide this fiscal year, its highest to date. It’s forecasting about a million unit drop in PSP and PS2 sales, however.

The PlayStation 3′s worldwide install base is currently at 38 million.
