Murder, Death, Kill; video games to blame?

Murder, Death, Kill; video games to blame?

Regular news followers will have read the recent story in which two national newspapers – The Times and METRO – went to press with the headline “Video gaming leads to surge in rickets”.

What followed were vast amounts of column inches of what I consider to be absolute spin as once again the video games industry was demonised, whilst the actual message that should have pervaded was ignored.

Namco Bandai to have a mass job cull

It seems that the recession has claimed another scalp, as Namco Bandai have announced they plan to cut its workforce by 10% due to a weak financial year.

It is mini month on the European PlayStation Store

February is always the shortest month of the year, and so SCEE are cutting the price of some of their minis in Europe – we’re sure the month being small has nothing to do with the decision though.

Sony’s answer to the success of the small games on the Apple iPhone and iPod touch were recently supported under the PS3 firmware update 3.15.

Capcom predict fall in console and software prices

The games media industry spent much of 2009 getting all hot under the collar predicting a price drop for the PS3 – this duly came through Sony’s successful launch of the Slim. But should Capcom be believed, it looks like 2010 will be spent debating even further price cuts.

“Nintendo’s still gonna win” – Michael Pachter

Analyst Michael Pachter has predicted that – although the console war is far from over – it will be Nintendo who emerge triumphant. The question we ask is this; in this period of economic uncertainty should we be worrying about a console war in the first place?

Gaming injuries on the rise – The Sun (here we go again)

The Sun newspaper has reported a massive increase in game related injuries, whilst outdoor related injuries have plummeted.

Is the video game industry once again being blamed for something it has no control over?

PlayLogic working on unannounced game

LinkedIn, the professional version of Facebook, is always a goldmine for nuggets of information regarding upcoming games.

It’s official – The PS3 won’t give you rickets

Both The Times and METRO ran headlines last week claiming that a report written at Newcastle University found that the playing of video games has led to an increase in rickets.

Well, fans of common sense rejoice because Dr Timothy Cheetham, one of the people who helped write the report, has come forward with the real results.

Motion Control: can the PS3 avoid becoming a dumping ground for dreadful party games?

Earlier we announced that Sony Computer Entertainment had dated their new Motion Controller (a provisional title) for release this autumn. With its release in sight, we contemplate whether the PS3 with motion sensing is a match made in gaming heaven or whether we should expect to be overrun by a deluge of lobotomy-inducing novelty games – as has arguably been the case with the Wii.

PS3 Motion Controller confirmed for fall 2010

Sony Computer Entertainment have announced today that their motion controller, which still has yet to have a name, will be released this fall in all major territories.

There are already some big titles that will support the new controller, Resident Evil 5 and LittleBigPlanet to name a few, and Sony plans on bringing new attractive and innovative games for the motion controller.

Gran Turismo 5 and LittleBigPlanet were also present in non-playable form. Gran Turismo 5 and Super Stardust HD have already been shown at CES, so there was nothing more to say about those games.

But apparently LittleBigPlanet actually worked really well in the third dimension…

Sony demo Gran Turismo 5 in 3D at CES 2010

We all know 3D gaming is coming (probably thrown right at your face so as to get the most out of the effect) but reports of how games we’re already somewhat familiar with look and play using the old new technology have been a tad limited.

Until now.

In the five weeks of last month, the PlayStation 3 sold 3.8 million consoles worldwide.

No PS Wand for Naughty Dog

At least not for the third person perspective genre.

Speaking to G4TV, Naughty Dog’s co-president Evan Wells has discounted any possibility of future Uncharted games getting the motion controller treatment.

That’s not to say one of the best studios in the world aren’t interested in the technology, they’d just prefer to use it on a new property designed from the ground up with the device in mind.
