Smart phones may be a big market, but they are nowhere close to bringing down Nintendo and Sony’s handheld consoles.
Today SEGA announced a sequel to their great kart racer Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing Transformed! The first game was excellent and a refreshing title to add to our racing collection because a good kart racer is something that is hard to come by if it isn’t Mario Kart. This time around the karts will be switching to air and water along with land, less like Diddy Kong Racing and more like Mario Kart 7. Hopefully the game will be better than what the trailer shows.
Looks like the PS3 and the PS Vita are getting a good bit of characters that the Xbox 360 isn’t getting. The Sony versions of the game will include Pacman, Cole (from Infamous 2), Toro and Kuro and the original Megaman from NES, and no we don’t mean the pixelated one. Check out the new promo video below!
This week portable gaming has had more than the usual amount of news so we thought we would give you an update..
-Nekkei Trendy, a technology website for Japan, that the “Lite” model of the 3DS will be released in Japan during the first half of 2012 as many of you probably already predicted when they announced the 3DS in the first place. Hopefully this new model will have the Circle Pad Pro built into it.
- Also due to the low sales of the PS Vita shops in Japan (A little above 40,000 units, behind the 3DS, the PS3, the original PSP and even the Wii!) have been lowering their prices unofficially just to sell them from their stores, this has been happening more often with the 3G models than the regular models.
-A new Monster Hunter game has been rumored over in japan, this could be a spin off in the series or a port of the fourth title in the series which as it stands now is a 3DS exclusive.
-Capcom has confirmed that 3DS owners will be able to download the demo for Resident Evil Revelations later on this year.
-The 3DS has sold over 4 million units at this point in time, Nintendo states that this is more than the Wii sold in it’s first nine months. The regular Nintendo DS has sold over 10 Million.
