Woah, now the news catches if it is duplicate, cool. But why were there duplicate stories today.

There were? Which ones? I did the bulk of Wednesdays updates.

OMG Pachter tearing MW2 a new asshole in bonus round. He hates the story and guesses that now people just want to shoot shit. I love Pachter. This is so weird, Pachter makes sense on this show.

Pachter says that 500k units for NMH2 is how much they need to sell to break even and that it will not sell that much. Keighley then added that it is dead on arrival.

I saw that a few days ago. No More Heroes 1 sold 470'000 and is Suda's biggest selling game and enough of a success to spawn a sequel. If it sells more than that it's a success.

Wii: WAW is at around 700k. The Force Unleashed is over 900k. It should be a million seller sometime in 2010.

FU Wii is close to being the best selling SKU.

Worldwide Force Unleashed Wii is 1.44 million on Wii

Wii WaW worldwide is 1.41 million

Wow at the Aussie porn laws, this is worse than the old UK laws pre-mid 90s. Aussie censorship is f****** re******.

Is it so wrong that I enjoy rubbing my face all over vagina?

No, but you must have an extremely small face.

Dude, all you gotta do is have the girl spread her legs up in the air, plop your face on the vag, and rub vigorously from side to side, up and down, like your washing your face after a good night's drinkin'!!!

Gotta get sloppy with it!!

Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit Plus and New Super Mario Bros. Wii have all sold over 10 million copies in just one financial year - exactly as Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata predicted in August 2009.

As of 31st December, Wii Sports Resort (released summer 2009) had sold 13.58m units, New Super Mario Bros. Wii (released November 2009) had sold 10.55m units and Wii Fit Plus (released October 2009) had sold 10.16m units.

Those magnificent numbers, coupled with a Wii price cut - sadly not evident in the UK - helped Nintendo shift over 17m consoles during the nine months beginning 1st April 2009.

Total software sales for Wii reached 156.65m units.

Nintendo's DS series - DSi, DS Lite, DSi LL - also fared well, shifting 23.35m units worldwide.

In Japan, new DS games dominated the charts. Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver sold 3.74m units, Pokemon Platinum sold 3.1m units and Tomodachi Collection sold 2.74m during those nine months.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (released December 2009) raced to an impressive 2.45m units worldwide.

So far, 121.38m games have been sold on DS during the financial 2009 year. That ends March 2010, remember.

Net income for Nintendo was ¥192.6bn (£1.3bn), down 10 per cent on the same period in fiscal 2008.

Europe made up a diminished 33.9 per cent of Nintendo's business during those nine months, while the US commanded 44.4 per cent.

Final Fantasy XIII (PS3)
Final Fantasy XIII
Final Fantasy XIII
Preview by David Jenkins - This is not a review, we want to make that absolutely clear before we start.

We have now played the Japanese version of the game but naturally it's all in Japanese, so we still have no idea what the English dialogue or voice-acting is going to be like.

This factor is important because it could spell the difference between a good game and a truly great one.

Although it's easy enough to piece together the basics of the story by reading up on the Internet you can get the gist of things simply by watching the visuals and listening to the Japanese voice actors.

The facial animation is great and you gain a strong sense of the characters without understanding a word.

What we can't judge is whether there's any subtlety to their characterisation.

The art certainly couldn't be accused of being under-designed but it does often err on the side of cliche, with lots of stock industrial areas and oversized ancient ruins.

The overall impression though is often stunning and we've no doubt the game will quite rightly be proclaimed as one of the best-looking ever.

The combat too will likely go down as some of the best in the series.

Although combat once again uses something called an Active Battle System (unlike the controversial Final Fantasy XII) it's much more action-orientated than it ever used to be.

That said, although technically there are no random battles a fight always begins with a cutaway to a screen filled with complicated looking menus.

You only have control of one of the three on-screen characters though.

Depending on their experience levels characters can set-up long chains of combos rather than just picking a single move from a small list.

Naturally there are dozens of complications, the most interesting being the Optima Change (aka Paradigm Shift) which lets you swap to the character class of an ally mid-battle.

Summons also return under a different name, as do many of the usual monsters.

The combat is much faster paced than usual, almost coming off as a kind of remote control Devil May Cry/Bayonetta.

Accessibility is increased by the fact that every fight, even boss battles, are automatically checkpointed and you recover health automatically.

Veterans of the series may howl in protest but this has enabled Square Enix to keep the difficultly level high and ensure "menu-mashing" never works.

The levelling system is the least altered aspect and very similar to Final Fantasy X - but it's a fan favourite so that's no complaint.

Where the grumbles do occur is that outside of combat and levelling up there really isn't much else.

There is no traditional world map, towns or even many side quests, although elements of each are still retained in watered-down form.

For the most part the game sees you running through exquisitely-detailed but often rather inert and lifeless looking environments, looking for your next experience-boosting fighting.

In a sense that's no different to any previous Final Fantasy, but the disconnect in complexity between the imagery and the interaction is wide.

Final judgement though will have to wait until March, on both 360 and PS3.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has today announced the iPad at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. The iPad will be able to browse the web, read email, books and play games as well as work with Apple's iTunes store. Prices for the iPad will start at $499 and Wi-Fi models will ship in March followed by 3G models in April.

You can view official pictures of the iPad over at CVG. Here’s a full rundown of features from Apple:

The large Multi-Touch screen on iPad lets you see web pages as they were meant to be seen — one whole page at a time. With vibrant color and sharp text. So whether you’re looking at a page in portrait or landscape, you can see everything at a size that’s actually readable. And with iPad, navigating through the web has never been easier, or more intuitive. Because you use the most natural pointing device there is: your finger. You can scroll through a page just by flicking your finger up or down on the screen. Or pinch to zoom in or out on a photo. There’s also a thumbnail view that shows all your open pages in a grid, to let you quickly move from one page to the next.

See and touch your email in ways you never could before. In landscape, you get a split-screen view, showing both an opened email and the messages in your Inbox. To see the opened email by itself, you just turn iPad to portrait, and the email automatically rotates and fills the screen. No matter which orientation you use, you can scroll through your mail, compose a new email using the large, on-screen keyboard, or delete messages, with nothing more than a tap and a flick. If someone emails you a photo, you can see it right in the message. You can also save the photos in an email directly to the built-in Photos app. And iPad will work with all the popular email providers, including MobileMe, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, Hotmail, and AOL.

With its crisp, vibrant display, and its unique software features, iPad is an extraordinary way to enjoy and share your photos. For example, the new Photos app displays the photos in an album as though they were in a stack. Just tap or pinch to open the stack, and the whole album opens up. Then you can flip through your pictures, zoom in or out, or watch a slideshow. You can even use your iPad as a beautiful digital photo frame while your iPad is docked or charging. And there are lots of ways to import photos: you can sync them from your computer, download them from an email, or import them directly from your camera using the Apple Camera Connection Kit.

The large, high-resolution screen makes iPad perfect for watching any kind of video: from HD movies and TV shows, to podcasts and music videos. You can also easily move between wide-screen and full-screen with a double-tap. And because it’s essentially one big screen, with no buttons or anything to distract you, the picture fills your line of sight. So you feel completely immersed in what you’re watching.

The YouTube app organizes videos so they’re really easy to see and navigate. To watch one, you just tap it. When you’re watching in landscape, the video will automatically play in full screen. And with its high-resolution display, the latest YouTube HD videos will look amazing on iPad.

With the iPod app, all your music is literally at your fingertips. You can browse by album, song, artist, or genre, with a simple flick. To play a song, just tap it, and the now playing screen will show the album art at full size. Then you can listen to your music with either the powerful built-in speaker, or with wired or Bluetooth wireless headphones.

Just tap on the iTunes Store icon, and you can browse and buy music, TV shows, podcasts — or buy and rent movies — wirelessly, right from your iPad. There are thousands of movies and TV shows (in both standard and high definition), along with thousands of podcasts, and millions of songs to choose from. You can even preview songs before you buy them. And you can sync iPad with the content you already have in your iTunes library on your Mac or PC.

App Store
iPad will run almost 140,000 apps from the App Store. Everything from games to business apps, and more. And new apps that have been designed just for iPad are highlighted, so you can easily find the ones that take full advantage of its features. Just tap the App Store icon on the screen and you’ll be able to browse, buy, and download apps wirelessly, right to the iPad.

The iBooks app is a great, new way to read and buy books.1 Just download the app for free from the App Store, and you’ll be able to buy everything from classics to bestsellers from the built-in iBookstore. Once you’ve bought a book, it’s displayed on your Bookshelf. To read it, all you have to do is tap on it and it opens up. The high-resolution, LED-backlit screen displays everything in sharp, rich, color, so it’s very easy to read, even in low light.

See more of the world with high-resolution Satellite and Street View images. You can even see topography with the new Terrain view. You can also search for a nearby business type (for example, “Restaurant”) and then tap on that business to see the route and directions from your current location.

With its expansive display and large, on-screen keyboard, iPad makes jotting down notes easy. In landscape mode, you get not only a note-taking page but a list of all your notes. It even circles the current note in red. So you can see where you are at a glance.

iPad makes it easy to keep on schedule by displaying Day, Week, Month or List views of your calendar. That way, you can see an overview of a whole month, or the details of a single day. iPad will even show multiple calendars at once, so you can manage work and family calendars at the same time.

The Contacts app on iPad makes finding names, numbers and other important information quicker and easier than ever before. A new view lets you see both your complete contact list, and a single contact, simultaneously. Need directions? Just tap on an address inside a contact and it’ll open Maps.

Home Screen
The Home Screen gives you one-tap access to everything on iPad. You can also customize your Home Screen by adding your favorite apps and websites, or using your own photos for the background. And you can move apps around to arrange them in any order you want.

Spotlight Search
Spotlight Search allows you to search across iPad, and all of its built-in apps. Including Mail, Contacts, Calendar, iPod, and Notes. It’ll even search apps you’ve downloaded from the App Store. So no matter what you’re looking for, it’s never more than a few taps away.

Updates done.

Trauma Team is really enticing now:

Maria Torres -- the 37th reason I want this game.

"After we completed the emergency response section, we moved right along to one of the slower-paced, thought-provoking modes in the game: forensics. In this mode of play, players take control of Naomi Kimishima, who must study the deceased in order to determine the cause of death. This mode is more akin to games like Phoenix Wright, as it plays like a traditional point-and-click adventure. When this segment started up, we began by reassembling the victim's skull, which has been cracked and broken into different pieces. Once complete, players can view the entire skeleton and look for abnormal areas. For example, both femurs in the victim's legs were broken. There was also some strange discoloration along the shoulder bones and the ribs.

This mode of play also features a section where players must listen to testimonies from witnesses and help Naomi piece together the case. For example, Naomi had to study a recording from a homeless man who claims to have seen a part of the victim's body.

The forensics sections are similar to the pacing and tone of the diagnosis sections, which follow one Gabriel Cunningham. This handsome doctor must interview and analyze the patient's symptoms in order to settle on a diagnosis for the ailment at hand. A highlight of the demonstration for me was when I was told that Gabriel Cunningham has an AI assistant by the name of RONI. Only in the world of Trauma Team do the doctors have AI assistants with sensual voices! "

Destructoid No More Heroes 2 review

It's extremely well crafted from beginning to end, and rarely (if ever) sacrifices fun for delivering a message. No More Heroes 2 still makes me laugh, scream, think, and violently wank, even more so after the first play-through. That's more than I can say for almost any game this generation.

Score: 9.5 -- Superb (9s are a hallmark of excellence. There may be flaws, but they are negligible and won't cause massive damage to what is a supreme title.)

I don't see the point of the iPad. It seems like it doesn't know whether it wants to be a handheld, a PC, or a console...and probably won't be the best at either of those.

I'd think the iPhone would be a better choice.

iPad seems pointless to me. I guess in gaming terms it wants to be a giant DS.

Only it can play movies and shit.

Small powerful netbooks can do most of what this thing does.

Resort, NSMB Wii, Wii Fit Plus sell over 10m each

Sad. Nintendo clearly doesn't know what they are doing.

They should really be focusing their attention on core games for the hardcore market that will sell around 300,000 each.  That's better business.

Is it so wrong that I enjoy rubbing my face all over vagina?

No, but you must have an extremely small face.

Dude, all you gotta do is have the girl spread her legs up in the air, plop your face on the vag, and rub vigorously from side to side, up and down, like your washing your face after a good night's drinkin'!!!

Gotta get sloppy with it!!
