I have fallen in love with Dead Space. I decided, today, that I wanted to be sure I got my hands on it as quickly as possible. I have even become so involved with the story that I wanted to buy the “Dead Space Downfall” movie – in Hi Definition BluRay, of course. I looked in to Best Bu to preorder both, so I would have a copies reserved at my closest Best Buy Store come launch day. At this time, only the movie was available for preorder, no the game, and the BluRay version was $30. I kept hunting.
Again lacking the preorder for the game, Wal-Mart is taking preorders for the movie as low as 19.98 for the BluRay version.
The game and movie are both available for preorder at Amazon. The BluRay movie is $2 more than Wal-Mart’s price, but you can currently save 5% ($3) and preorder either the PS3 or Xbox 360 version for $56.99.
Still want more? Alright then, how about this: Pay the full $59.99 directly from The EA Store or from GameStop and get a limited edition artbook, entitled “The Art Of Dead Space: Designing a Nightmare.”
One more: eStarland is selling the Xbox 360 version for $55.95, and the PS3 version for $56.95.
To be entirely honest, I haven’t even decided what I’m going to do, quite yet! But if you find any more deals (particularly better ones!), then by all means, pelase let us know! And remember, if you see the game as low as $50, it’s probably the PC Version.
Club Nintendo had an article, and the fans over at GoNintendo.com just had to get it picked apart and translated. The article was an interview with Shigeru Miyamoto ad Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo’s top dogs. Based on the efforts of the community, one of the more interesting questions asked had to do with re-designing the console to include a hard drive. Miyamoto responded that something was in the works, but not to expect it any time soon. Clarification in why not to expect it came with Fils-Aime’s response, when he noted that console redesigns often happen when sales are in a slump.
A notable question also came when they were asked about Xbox 360’s upcoming Avatars. The Nintendo rep’s happily replied that imitation was the highest form of flattery!
The official list was just released: look out for bushido brawlers in “Samurai Shodown II.” Experience a chess-like game with a few twists in “Shotest Shogi.” And get your fix of extra-terrestrial sports with “Rocket Bowl,” – an old Flash game that people just can’t get enough of.
I’m looking forward to “Shotest Shogi.” I played the demo of this a few weeks ago and have been trying to get a handle on it ever since. I’m bad at chess, but this game is simply very fun! I can’t wait to give it another go.
Found this fascinating piece of news today, at The New Zealand Herald. This kiwi paper is reporting that more and more games are becoming family friendly, and Xbox 360 is helping to lead that charge with increased sales in the region. From the article: “More than 70 per cent of all software titles sold now fall into non-restricted age categories and genres.”
