Nintendo Drops Wii Price To $129.99

Nintendo is knocking the price of a Wii console down to $129.99 (from $149.99) in advance of the November 18, 2012 Wii U launch. Current bundles are packaged with New Super Mario Bros. Wii, but the newly re-priced console will switch things up by including Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort as pack-in games instead.

In addition to the games, both of which are crammed onto a single disc, the bundle includes the black Wii console as well as a Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk controller (both black as well). The newly re-priced and re-packaged Wii bundle is available in some stores now, but Nintendo confirms that it will be "broadly available" here in North America by October 28.

Borderlands 2 Detailed -- All New Characters, Guns, and Vehicles

Unsurprisingly, Madden NFL 13 was able to take the top spot as the top selling game of the month, but it was Borderlands 2 number two spot on the list that really caught our eye. 

“Borderlands 2, with its bazillion guns-a-blazing, exceeded the first month’s unit sales of the first game which launched in October 2009 by 234%," said NPD analyst Anita Frazier. Fifa Soccer 13, New Super Marios Bros. 2, and Guild Wars 2 rounded out the top five.

The bad news is that video game sales continued to slide in September, declining 24 percent year-over-year in September 2012 from $1.11 billion to $848.3 million according to the NPD Group. The number is a bit misleading though, as they only represent new physical retail sales of hardware, software and accessories which only account for about 50 percent of the total amount consumers spend on games.

Had NPD included digital format sales, as well as add-on content downloads including microtransactions, subscriptions, and mobile apps the number would be at about $1.6B, meaning people are still spending just as much money (if not more) on games this year as they were last year, just in different ways.

As for consoles, the Xbox 360 was the highest-selling home console for the month with 270,000 units sold. Nintendo also had a bright month, as the overall sales of the Nintendo 3DS increased 89 percent year-over-year. “Nintendo 3DS XL continues to galvanize our Nintendo 3DS business,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Hardware sales are up, software sales are increasing exponentially and the attach rate is growing stronger every month."

To see the full Top 10 check after the break.

Disney Epic Mickey 2

Not everyone is lucky enough to find their passion; fewer still never get a chance to turn that passion into a career. Passion is that thing that keeps you from hitting the snooze bar and keeps you up to all hours of the night. It feeds you when you forget to eat and keeps you going when all else is lost. And when Warren Spector, the creator of such classics as System Shock and Deus Ex, got a chance to work with his passion, a little cartoon character by the name of Mickey Mouse, he did what anyone would do in his situation.

He turned it down.

As you may have guessed by now, this tale has a happy ending since we’re only weeks away from the release of Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. But as Warren Spector described to me, he hesitated first one the deal since he “didn’t want to make a kid’s game.” Taking the lessons learned from Deus Ex as well as many of his previous games, Warren’s ideas for a Mickey game mixed the dystopian future worlds and morality systems along with the early beginnings of Mickey Mouse where there was mischief, adventure, and when the cartoon appeals more towards adults. Warren describes this as a “low pressure, high fun history lesson.”

FIFA 13 Verdict: Finely Tuned Soccer

Posted September 25, 2012 - By Stephen Johnson








FIFA 13

Long-running fan favorite soccer simulation FIFA has a new entry for 2013, and futbol fans will be well-pleased with FIFA 13. According to our FIFA 13 review from the great Miguel "Yellow Card" Concepcion, the newest FIFA is more about incremental improvement than revolutionary advancement.

Here's a taste of Miguel's FIFA 13 review.

"With nothing to overhaul or drastically improve this year, EA Sports was able to focus on the little areas where FIFA Soccer 12 fell short, adjustments that go a long way in making FIFA Soccer 13 near perfect. For example, I could not reproduce the accidental make-out sessions and same-team tripping that resulted from FIFA Soccer 12's Impact Engine. I also had the sense that EA improved the teammate AI to actually work as a team, which you'd think would have been fixed ages ago. The one standout tweak is in dribbling, where it almost feels like the studio took a page from its own FIFA Street playbook terms of having better control of the ball."
