December NPD: 2012 sales hit $13.26 billion, Black Ops 2 leads the pack

During a period that encompassed both post-Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping and the Christmas season (November 25 through December 29), the physical retail sector of the video games industry pulled in $3.2 billion, bringing the total dollar amount spent in 2012 up to $13.26 billion, which is just...

Sonic CD was December's top PSN game

Not that we're necessarily surprised by Sonic CD taking the number-one spot on December's PSN charts, but it's always a little sobering when the classics of yesteryear outsell brand-new titles like Trine 2. Nostalgia is a powerful thing, friends. Well, the fact that Sonic CD is arguably the best 2D...

December Wii sales held back by supply shortages

While moving 2.15 million units in a single month is nothing to jeer at, analysts are expressing their disappointment in the December sales figures of the Nintendo Wii. Jesse Divnich from the Electronic Entertainment Design and Research firm calculates that over 4 million Wiis could have found...

December NPD: DS sells over 3 million, '08 sales reach $21.33 billion

That's right, we just used "billion" and "million" in a headline. Clearly, we're writing about the game industry's North American performance during the month marked by Christmas trees, torn wrapping paper and men wearing fake beards. According to the latest NPD sales results, December saw...

DS releases for the week of December 29th

If you were hoping for a lot of releases this week, we're sorry to disappoint you, though we hope that the holiday glut has left you satisfied ... because it's likely these games will not. Australia seems to be taking a hiatus from releases this week, and our reliable source for European and...

DS releases for the week of December 22nd

Oh by golly, have a holly jolly something this week, because what you're not getting are DS games. Uh, unless they're gifts. But even if we had a bevy of releases, none would shine so brightly in this blogger's extraordinarily nerdy eyes as the lone title slated for Europe: 100 Classic Book...

DS releases for the week of December 15th

So much for last week's release of C.O.R.E. Looks like it got pushed back to carry another week of lackluster North American releases. Can C.O.R.E. carry anything, with its bland look? We'll never know if it never comes out! But maybe you're more the Dreamer Series: Horse Trainer sort of gamer...

DS releases for the week of December 8th

Looks like everywhere is skinny on games this week. On the one hand, that's probably good; these release-heavy weeks can be hard on the ol' pocketbook, and this is supposed to be a season of giving, not a season of going out and buying all the games you want. On the other hand, if you're in Europe,...

DS releases for the week of December 1st

The holiday march continues, bringing with it legions of new games. Well, not quite legions. A solid unit, perhaps. Half a unit? Okay, Slingo Quest and some mushrooms that specialize in pummeling animals while wearing big, puffy gloves. It's better than Elf Bowling, at least. Animal Boxing ...

December NPD: Apparently people shop for nonessential items in December

It's the weirdest thing. Right around November and December of every year, sales of luxury and entertainment items go way up. December of 2007 was no exception for our favorite entertainment item. How much of an exception was it not? How about 2.47 million units in one month alone? 2007 was already...
