Wii off to a flying start in Oz

The Wii is off to a healthy start down under, having shifted 80,000 units in its first five months of release. That's 0.4% of the Australian population, for those of you who lie awake at night wondering about such things. Looks like those pre-order bonuses paid off. The Xbox 360 has sold 160,000...

Market research could have improved PS3's image

Few people hate Sony as a company; it is just the PS3 -- as well as the DRM and exploding batteries -- that pull the brunt of the ire. In fact, many of their other products are beloved by consumers worldwide and aren't decried by the media. The biggest reason is Sony's Electronic Division's strong...

Big sales needed for PS3 game profit

Regardless of what any of us want, the whole idea of making video games is to make money. As it stands, it would seem that Sony isn't making it easy for anyone. This could be bad news for the PS3's future. According to Namco Bandai President Takeo Takasu, due to production costs, each PS3 game will...

Resistance padding files only 420MB per region [update 2]

[Update 1: We got our answer. The entire thing is blown way out of proportion. There are still padding files, but they're a relatively meager 420MB per region. 2: We've removed the original headline which read "Resistance = 17.75GB of garbage?" We've maintained the original post below for...

The mind of a PS3 scalper (hint: it's not pretty)

We know those waiting on the PS3 were a vicious lot. We've seen them -- or actually experienced -- these hoards mob game stores and act in a generally violent manner. Some of these gathering Huns actually wanted the PS3 for themselves, but others did it for the eBay markup. "Charlie", or so he...

PS3 is following in 360's footsteps

We're all familiar with the Ring of Death on the 360. If you see it, you know it is time to pull out the extended warranty slip -- or shell out another $400 -- because you're going to need it. Sony couldn't have any of that and are countering with their own: the Red Button and Beep of Death. A...

PS3: HDMI doesn't like you

The PS3 troubles continue to roll in. First the (admittedly minor) backwards compatibility issues, then we find out the PS3 can't run 1080i, now a new issue has come to light: some folks are having a rough time getting HDMI to work right. The guys over at The Man Room have unpacked their PS3...
