1.8 million PS3, 1.8 million PSP units sold from April-June (Joystiq)

Jul 28th 2011 3:39PM @Raffi256 Since the 360 sales keep increasing, Microsoft is also forecasting that they will sell more consoles worldwide for the entire year than either Wii or PS3.

Earthworm Jim HD wriggles onto PSN August 3 (Joystiq)

Jul 29th 2010 5:20PM Personally, I like the microbucks. I always buy MS points at a discount so Earthworm Jim only cost $8.27 for me.

I think paying less for something is more convenient than using real currency. Luckily, PSN does have good sales on their exclusive PSN titles from time to time.

Portal 2 delayed until 2011 (Joystiq)

Jun 9th 2010 1:43PM Clearly, they needed to move Portal out so they could show Source Engine 2 (or is technically 3?) which Portal needs to be... wait for it... ported to. (God that was bad. I apologize.)

They will also show this at MS press conference to show off Half Life 3... not Half Life 2 episode three. They will also announce Counter Strike 2. All three games will be bundled together for release in 2011.

BTW… the medications my doctor just gave me are really great. You should try some.

Rumor: Project Natal priced at $150; bundled with Arcade SKU for $300 (Joystiq)

May 26th 2010 5:34PM No way...

MS just debunked the last pricing rumor two weeks ago. Sounds like the same rumor recycled with a different exchange rate.

Third party developers would s--- a brick at that price point. I mean Sony's bundle is supposed to cost $99.00. I would expect MS to least match that price.

MS needs this into as many hands as possible AND be competitive in price with the Wii. $150.00 doesn't do that.

J Allard and Robbie Bach officially exit Microsoft (Joystiq)

May 25th 2010 1:57PM So...They've basically removed a layer of management. The sub-teams (Xbox, Windows Phone) now report directly to Ballmer. This is a bad thing?

Rumor: Sony to reveal 'PSN+' subscription service at E3 2010 (Joystiq)

May 25th 2010 11:32AM I can see Sony try to get that price point. I mean PSN must cost them a pretty penny and it's not like they recoup those costs with hardware profit.

A ton of people put up with subscriptions/monthly fees for everything, just add it to the pile...
$15-50 for internet access
$25-120 for TV
$30 for internet access for your phone
$5-10 for messaging on your phone
$10-17 for XM/Sirrus
$15 for WOW/or another MMO
$8 for Netflix
$15 for Zune pass
$10 for Hulu
$13 for WSJ or other online newspapers/mags
Etc. etc, etc.

What’s another 10.00 a month ? That’s what Sony is thinking.

Hands-on: Battlefield: Bad Company 2's co-op Onslaught mode (Joystiq)

May 21st 2010 9:51AM DICE already mentioned that it would not be free.

Call of Duty: Black Ops trailer introduces a modern world at war (Joystiq)

May 19th 2010 3:17PM They don't plan on it... they get paid for it.

Square Enix 'looking into' Xbox 360 release of Final Fantasy Versus XIII (Joystiq)

May 19th 2010 2:51PM 360 = 40 million consoles sold lifetime
PS3 = 34 million consoles sold lifetime
(based on MS and Sony's most recent annual reports)

Total = 74 million "Hardcore" consoles.

Why would any third party publisher ignore the PS3 or 360 at this point? It makes no business sense.

Square Enix 'looking into' Xbox 360 release of Final Fantasy Versus XIII (Joystiq)

May 19th 2010 2:42PM @Tigre

Unless, of course, MS waives the licensing charge or reduces it to help make sure a title is released on the 360.

No doubt they did that for Final Fantasy XIII.
