We just can’t help but be excited about the newly released demo for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and it looks as if most people agree with us. LucasArts bragged today that the demo was able to break all of the previous download records for Xbox Live.
They stated that during the first eight days that it was released the demo received over a million downloads. Those numbers combined with the number of people from the PlayStation Network version it is a total of 2.3 million people. With this large amount of people we can only imagine how the sales will be when the full version of the game is finally released September 16th on the Xbox 360, PS2 and 3, and Nintendo Wii.
Cameron Suey the producer of the new Star Wars: The Force Unleashed stated that, “Between the Xbox 360 and the PS3, if we’ve done our job right, they’ll be indistinguishable. We really wanted to make the same sort of polished, high-end next-gen experience on both those versions.”
He went on to explain that both versions will be void of the multiplayer feature because it would have distracted them from putting everything into the story line and all of the features needed for the single player mode.
Christmas shopping has officially begun and the Playstation is starting off with a bang. After the hectic rush of Black Friday Sony was able to take a step back and evaluate exactly how much they had sold.
Sales showed that the PlayStation 3 shot up to 298 percent since Sony introduced the cheaper $399 40GB and most of the sales occurred on Black Friday. The news follows a similar positive week in Japan, where the PS3 outsold Nintendo’s Wii for the very first time.
The holidays are the best time to get great deals on games and gaming consoles. Sure you may not always get the brand new one that has been released – but there is always something out there for you to get that could be almost as good. Japan at least is showing us how to do this by re-designing the PS2 for those who want one – but don’t want to pay the $500 it takes to get the PS3.
Guitar Hero marked the beginning of a new wave of gamers. No one expected it to be as popular as it now is and many are shocked that it has made it to game number three. Even though Guitar Hero II was a bit of a disappointment – fans are hoping that Guitar Hero III will bring back everything that we love with a few new things that will spice things up.
Guitar Hero III brings back the serious fun from the first one plus adds new features. It has rock classics such as Metallica’s One, Living Colour’s Cult of Personality, Iron Maiden’s Number of the Beast and even Sonic Youth’s cult hit Kool Thing.
