If you're a regular listener, you'll know that the Xbox family has never had a strong hold in Japan. Well, apparently, last week that changed. The 360 has outsold both the PS3 and the PS2. Now, it is believed that the reason for a 580% spike in sales for the 360 is entirely due to the launch of
Ace Combat 6 which is apparently very popular. It will be interesting to see if this keeps up.
Sony is releasing firmware version 2.0. Now, for those of you who don't know how software works, a number change indicates a major change. There is a lot to this update, and we know there are only 3 of you who have a PS3, so here's the deal, check the link and G4 will tell you about the update.
Here's some good news on a dull day:
Elder Scrolls will be coming in a new form, as an MMO. We don't really have any information yet, except that $300 million has already been spent on the project. That is a lot of money for any project. Hopefully, all that money will mean nothing but an awesome game!
The iPhone has launched in the UK on the
O2 network. It appears to be the same handset that is available here in the US, except for the obvious network location software. The same rules appear to apply to this handset, including the ability to unlock the handset for other networks, with the same possibility of bricking the handset. We look forward to seeing how poorly the phone does over there.
Tired of not having a virtual map everywhere you go? Well, that is no longer a problem. Google and Gilbarco Veeder-Root are adding Google Maps to around 3,500 gas pumps across the country.
This will allow users to find their way while they are filling up their tank. Either that, or block the pump while they are lost.
It's official, the PS3 just got a whole lot cooler. Sony Computer Entertainment announced that
God of War III is in the works. This will mark Kratos' move to the next gen, and promises incredible graphics and longer gameplay.
There a couple of obstacles to overcome: Cory Barlog,
GOW2 game designer and David Jaffe, gaming god, have both left SCEA. Nevertheless, GOW will be anamaing game.
