Sony won’t tolerate Wii to Move ports

We are going to be brutally honest – we are extremely excited about the PlayStation Move here at Attitude Towers, but there is a little voice in the back of our head that tells us to burn things. Behind that voice however is a more niggling one, playing on one of our fears – that the Move will be nothing more than a home to shoddy Wii ports.

Can Sony brush aside that fear?

Bungie uncertain on lead platform for new IP

Over the past decade Bungie and Microsoft have been inseparable. In Microsoft, Bungie found the perfect partner with limitless resources to fund their epic Halo brand.

So surely the 360 would be the automatic choice as lead console for their new IP?

GameStop Canada accidently lists Move price?

Sony has been awfully quiet regarding certain aspects of the PlayStation Move. We don’t blame them, as revealing their cards too early could be a crucial mistake in this years battle of the motion peripherals.

The most we’ve heard is mutterings of a sub $100 price tag, but nothing concrete. Unfortunately somebody forgot to tell GameStop Canada not to spill the beans, as they posted the Move’s price on their website.

So – what’s the magic number?

Capcom see massive 73% fall in profits

Capcom’s financial results for the year ended 31 March don’t make pleasant reading; the company have reported a 73% fall in profits to £494.4m as annual sales dropped by 27% to 16m.

E3 2010 will be the biggest and best ever

E3 2010 will be the biggest and best ever

The waters of E3 have been choppy as of late. The convention was well known for its size and grandeur, but it was this that led to its eventual reduction in size as companies struggled to foot the bill for large and lavish stands.

The new look E3 tanked though – as it equated to nothing more than a few boring looking meetings. Last year saw a partial return to the E3 of old, but apparently that was nothing to what we can expect this year.

Excited? Us? Well, maybe a little (lot).
