Top 25 Amazon Sales - 4/16/09

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

We’re going to take a look at the list of top video game sales from Amazon. This list doesn’t count the systems, accessories, or downloadables. I always found it weird that Amazon had a section of “Top Video Games” and they count accessories and the like. I’ve compiled the top 25 games so you don’t have to. There’s some analysis after the jump.

1.Wii Fit - Wii

2.Mario Kart Wii with Wii Wheel - Wii

3.Pokemon Platinum - DS

4.Wii Sports Resort (Pre-Order) - Wii

5.Wii Play with Wii Remote - Wii

6.My Fitness Coach - Wii

7.Professor Layton and the Curious Village - DS

8.Killzone 2 - PS3

9.Mario Kart DS - DS

10.Shaun White Snowboarding - Wii

PlayStation 3 Firmware 2.40 is live

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

PlayStation 3 gets in-game XMB with Firmware 2.40.

Firmware 2.40 is now live on the PlayStation Network, adding the long-awaited in-game XMB access, a Trophy system, and gives developers everything they need to support custom soundtracks.

Trophies are an unashamed carbon copy of the Xbox 360 Achievement system, the first of many steps Sony will have to make in order to catch up with Microsoft’s dominant online service.

Iron Man Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray) pre-orders open

Saturday, June 14th, 2008

Iron Man Blu-ray pre-orders now open.

Amazon has opened pre-orders for the Blu-ray Collector’s Edition of Iron Man, and knocked the price down to $28. Unfortunately, they also put a Region 1 code on the disc, so those of you outside the US/Canada will have to wait.

Consider me shattered this is disc is region-locked - I’m not sure how things fare in Europe, but most studios take way too long to bring their Blu-ray releases to Australia. Cloverfield and Resevoir Dogs are both still over six weeks away, with their region-locked US counterparts having been available for a good while. Do they want my money or not?
