NPD: Boxed Video Game Sales Decline…

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Gamesindustry.biz is reporting that, “US boxed video game sales in May 2011 totalled $743.1 million, a 14 per cent decline on the same period in 2010 and the lowest since October 2006.”

It’s important to realize that those figures are for boxed video game sales just as NPD makes clear, noting that the numbers do not take into account “the growing portion of the industry that is comprised of digital format content distribution.”

Besides the (top ten) best sellers for May (see below), the NPD report also notes “that at the current rate of growth and decline, the Wii will still maintain the lead in the console space” and that “sales of the 3DS were light.”

  1. L.A. Noire (360, PS3)
  2. Brink (360, PS3, PC)
  3. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean (Wii, 360, DS, 3DS, PS3, PSP, PC)
  4. Portal 2 (360, PS3, PC)
  5. Mortal Kombat (PS3, 360)
  6. Call of Duty: Black Ops (360, PS3, Wii, DS, PC)
  7. Zumba Fitness: Join the Party (Wii, 360, PS3)
  8. NBA 2K11 (360, PS3, Wii, PS2, PSP, PC)
  9. Just Dance 2 (Wii)
  10. LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars (Wii, DS, 360, PS3, 3DS, PSP, PC)

E3 2011: Shorts – Part II

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

This will likely be the last “Shorts” update:

  • Titles seen in depth: F1 2011, Bodycount (Aug.30/11), Skyrim (Nov.11/11), COD: Modern Warfare 3, Batman: Arkham City (“it’s Arkham Asylum but it’s wide open, including side missions”), LOTR: War in the North (feels a lot like Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance), and a bunch of Disney titles.
  • Titles watched: Dead Island (guy playing could not figure out how to pick-up a paddle; eaten by zombies soon after) and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record (deliciously ridiculous). My criteria for standing watching someone elese play is simple: It must have “dead” in the title.
  • Nintendo Developer Roudtable (minus an actual table) was pretty good this year, even if there was no talk of “Wii U” other than Miyamoto indicating that Pikmin will be coming to the platform. Asking about Pikmin at this particular event is a running gag since he mentioned the game back in 2009. There was also an explaination of the evolution of Mario’s racoon suit. Live demos of Super Mario 3DS (working title) and Skyward Sword were given — both looked like fun to play.
  • Next Level Games (based in Vancouver, BC) are the developers behind Luigi’s Mansion 2 (3DS) ! Having worked with Nintendo on a number of titles (Super Mario Strikers, Mario Strikers Charged, Punch Out!!) Next Level Games is a really good fit.
  • I’m wondering if the model posing as BloodRayne knew there was a big tear in the seat of the costume.
  • By all accounts the Bethesda E3 party was a massive success (or “booze fest!” depending on how  you spell it). It wasn’t all booze though. A mechanical bull and karaoke were involved.

E3 2011: Shorts

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

Point format for this edition of E3 2011: Shorts –

  • Nintendo’s announcement of “Wii U” was only halfway. The handheld controller, which includes a big touchscreen, and full Wii controls was shown but not the console hardware pushing it. A blurry, placeholder image was present in some of the slides. Arrival: 2012.
  • More classic Nintendo franchises on the way for 3DS: Mario Kart, Starfox, and a new Super Mario Bros. title.
  • Sony’s “PSVita” handheld will retail in two forms. The wi-fi version will retail for $249.99 and the 3G version will go for $299.99. Equipped with a camera in front and back, and a back touchscreen, there’s some potential for some interesting gameplay mechanics. And amazing graphics! Launch scheduled for later in 2012, though I think they forgot to say if that was Japan or North America.
  • “Jane’s Addiction” has nothing to do with flight simulators or strategic weapons (unless that includes “sound bombs”).
  • Kobe Bryant can’t play video games.
  • THQ’s “Welcome to Steelport” (Saints Row: The Third) parking lot has some really awesome cars.
  • “Resistance 3″ has an archaic health system. (i.e. health boxes instead of regenerating health) It always takes a little to get used to that again.
  • “Halo 4″ was announced (surprising no one)!
  • I’ve seen some of the fastest thumb-typing at this event…
  • StreetPass continues to rack up visitors.
  • Nintendo didn’t have breakfast at their press conference making me one hungry freeloa– journalist.
