News Roundup

My apologies for not posting for awhile. But here’s what you might have missed while I was gone.

Nintendo’s Wii video-game console to undercut Sony’s PlayStation 3 [AP]
Nintendo said yesterday that its quirky game console, the Wii, will go on sale in the United States on Nov. 19 for $250 — much less than Sony’s PlayStation 3, which launches just two days earlier with $500 and $600 models.”

(What a novel concept…launching something on time and at a reasonable price. That might just be crazy enough to work.)

Xfire for Sony Playstation 3 But Only for One Game [Gameshout]
“Using Xfire as a chat communication utility will allow players to find friends in-game and join them in epic battles as well as communicate with them.”

(Continues with Sony’s business model of half-assedry.)

Enchanted Arms Coming to Playstation 3 [Pro-G]
“Given the poor sales of the Xbox 360 in Japan it’s no surprise to see the title heading to the PS3, and the lack of RPGs at the launch of the system should guarantee it some success.”

(Now all you need is a console to play it on.)

Analyst: 80 percent of launch PS3s to be high end [Gamespot]
“The split between premium (60GB) and core (20GB) units at US retail stores should be roughly 80/20 [percent]”

(Good news for the Ebay junkies hoping to cash in on the feeding frenzy this Christmas. Not too big of a deal for everyone else.)
