They've said they're planning on publishing one game per month and I expect them to stick to that. I think only Zelda is left to come from their main teams.
I am sure that Nintendo will publish their one game a month, but I expect quite a few of those games to be along the lines of Endless Ocean. Good editions to the Wii library, but not the sort of titles that will do anything for hardware sales.

If the Wii's Successor is truly releasing in Q4 2012, I would imagine that the main dev teams will be starting on those projects by now.

When the hell did PSP become a serious competitor in the handheld market? Props to Sony.

I look forward to NGP's release.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

I wasn't thinking it would be late 2012.
True, not sure if WPM is in house though.
Several outside teams are contributing, but it's still an EAD effort from what I understand. So like Steel Diver.

For Wii right now releasing something is better than releasing nothing.

Since Wii Play: Motion and Rhythm Heaven will be Nintendo's big summer titles I wonder if they'll try to make Just Dance 2 one of Wii's promoted fall or winter titles or give it a secondary treatment like Goldeneye.

LOL! What's the reason behind this?
I think it could be that everything is way down this week. Either that or that's an amazing hold for El Shaddai.

And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?

Low/average numbers in general. If i didnt know better, i would thought that this was a normal week. I thought Golden Week would have bigger sales numbers than this, but i guess that one of the reason for this is because Golden Week started last week, so it was divided over 2 weeks.

Not in easily imageable form yet, but through 9 weeks of Famitsu software info I've got 3DS at 0.95M and PS3 at 0.55. Considering the above image, looks like a tie ratio of just over 1 for each.
Ok, i see, thanks for the info :)
 

ULTROS!

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

Big discrepancy for El Shaddai between MC and Famitsu. I suppose that's to be expected when only 5k separates the top 5 and the top 20.
