Sorry, folks. Nintendo hasn’t ready their 3DS version of the Banshee game beat em up to unleash on the Nintendo 3DS yet.
I know it includes a woman, but the male cast is still available in the full version later this month. There was hope of course that the major puff connection would be in there. There was even 80′ sape in therefor younger gamers to tinker with, apparently they are still available to be purchased separately..
Nintendo isn’t quite saying when the full version of Cataclysm will be released yet, but they do anticipate it will be sooner than mid to late March. Which is nice, because reports last year indicated Nintendo’s showed casual MotionPlus technology at E3 and wouldn’t be available to the public until fall of 2013.
The 3DS has already had a less than successful launch. Nintendo announced it would be delayed beyond mid March into summertime last year, and they began then by slashing the price and bringing in three new Zelda games including the first of the Wii U’s series, meaning the launch lineup was already weak before the hardware’s release even though the Supply Depot Chart changed Showing Warp from sold out to only being available in-store.
The hardware isn’t a slouch either. The listed hardware specs all the consoles require are 3.53 inches tall, 13 inches wide, and 6 inches deep. That’s absolutely huge for a portable.
One of my pet peeves with the 3DS is the need to use stylus to play games. I am not a fan of straining my hand with a stylus to maneuver horticultures on my TV screen.
And then this week, Nintendo announces that download will now be available for the 3DS. Meaning you can download demos, free demos, and purchase the games of the ones you want from online such as Zelda. The system also offers Point and Click play along with SD cards.
For my first review of the hardware since I haven’t actually handled the unit, it’s really hard to blow me away. I avoided the 3D completely. I wasn’t sure I wanted to push all the buttons on the device to have a better look at the menus, and I knew the 3DS would be lacking without 3D.
The second I saw the device, my fears about the lack of 3D detail were instantly premature. I’ll give the unit and the console a solid 10 out of 10. It’s a strong contender for the best first party console on the market. Whether that’ll help Nintendo turn a profit remains to be seen. But for now, it’s off to a great start. And that’s all for the Wii U.
The Not So Speedy Future
Catapulting past the Wii U and the 360 360, Sony’s PS3 has already won a great deal of market share. And with an upcoming price drop, is showing no sign of slowing its astonishing popularity.
If you’ve been wondering what the missing component was going to be for the PS3, it turns out the missing component is a Blu-Ray drive. This isn’t as strange as it sounds. Most gaming consoles already have Blu-Ray drives, the difference is the PS3 has gone out to produce it in larger sizes than the standard. It’s a cost that the PS3 is able to withstand because it’s positioned at the top of a crown jewels of the gaming industry.
With the Blu-Ray drive, PlayStation 3 games will have the capacity to be presented on a much higher video quality than before. This will without a doubt have a huge impact on the revenue of Sony, but will also result in a huge additional revenue stream for them.
Interestingly, Nintendo has gone and produced a Blu-Ray player in large sizes aimed at the couch potato market. It works by connecting to a high definition TV and via a HDMI output to give you that up close and personal look. It is without a doubt a strong improvement over the standard Blu-Ray.
Of course, the PS3 also comes with a hard drive for you to download and games to movies and pictures to pretty much everything you could think of.
In short, the PS3 is a powerful system that will do a lot of great things. It’s in a league of its own.
The Xbox 360 has been pushing the boundaries of hardware and graphics for years. It leads the PS3 in pretty much every countable term a system can describe – powerful, exclusive, in-demand…
The Xbox may not be the powerhouse it once was, but it still rocks. And it rocks for a good reason.
This is one of the most famous processors ever created. It is powered by aCell processor that Microsoft boasts allows the machine to perform two trillion calculations in a second.
