It's not a franchise. They're separate IPs.

And Sony JP does own the Demon's Souls IP.

That's a disingenuous way to look at it IMO.

Dark Souls, although not canonically a sequel, IS the successor of Demon's Souls. From Software took it multiplatform the only way they could, and the chances you'll see an actual exclusive entry from that developer seem slim.

The Wii is getting at least one more great game from Japan, Xenoblade Chronicles, on 4/3/12.

I haven't even been able to update XBL. Been trying for close to an hour, said **** it I've got to be up at 5:30 so off to bed for me. Hopefully this is an issue on my end and I'll be able to do it tomorrow.

I was able to get it last night too somehow but I like it. I could never find things but the way it's laid out now is really really simple and good. Cloud saving looks interesting too.

NPD stats for November were released last week but exact numbers aren't known yet: http://www.industrygamers.com/news/g...-at-3-billion/

Quote:
In terms of hardware, Xbox dominated again, although exact figures aren't available yet. “This is the fourth consecutive month in which the Xbox 360 has been the top selling hardware system," said Frazier. "The gap between 360 sales and sales of the next best selling platform was the largest we’ve seen since December 2008 when the Nintendo DS was the top selling system.”

North America:

WII: 37.75M
360: 30.98M
PS3: 19.05M

Someone at Neogaf calculated that if sales continue at this trend, 360 will surpass Wii before the end of the 2013 holiday season ends.

Anyone know if the original PS3s that are backwards compatible still hold good value? I'm thinking of selling my 20GB model (HD has been upgraded to 80GB)

+ 7 games - COD MW2, NHL 11, FIFA 11, Little Big Planet, Metal Gear Solid 4, Killzone 2, UFC 2009
+ 3 Blu-ray movies - Batman Begins, 300, Talladega Nights

200ish? Possibly 250? or is that reaching

Well, Nintendo will be two years into their next gen console by that point, so I doubt they'd care anymore.

Live gives them a "ready" online service, where they just have to make sure their code works fluently.
I agree. I pay the fee with no question asked. There has rarely been xbox live problems and the times there have been it has been resolved outstandingly fast. Plus the menu system and all the crap you can browse through and watch on live is great. I play ps3 at my cousins place and the difference is night and day between xbox live and whatever the ps3 service is called. I enjoy what I am paying for

The last time I saw figures (month or two ago), Wii was well ahead, the gap between 360 and PS3 was around 1,8 million.

Had no clue that Xbox 360 was dominating in hardware sales so much during the past few months. Pretty nice to see as an Xbox owner when everyone I know is starting to switch to my console. They made the better choice

As a 360 owner, I'd rather have a PS3 at this point, better exclusives and you don't have to pay for silly things like Netflix connectivity. (I don't care about multiplayer, but I'm not going gold, just to use my Netflix account).
