November Sales Numbers – DS Wins

November NPD Number DS Dominates

The NPD group has released their sales numbers for November…so, I guess we should start with the bad news first. The PS2 is still outselling the PS3…embarrassing! To make matters worse, the PSP, PS2, and PS3 sales combined are less then the DS. The good news, the DS sold 1.53 million units and the Wii and 360 didn’t do bad, either. The totally monthly sales were $2.63 billion dollars, which is insane (and up %50 from last year).

The numbers are after the link.

Nielson Company Issues It’s Top 10 List For 2007

Nielson Company Top 10 2007

Well, this list isn’t too shocking. World of Warcraft tops the PC list, probably because it’s totally awesome (maybe even too awesome). The Sims is still holding on though, with the number two spot. I don’t think I’ll ever forget playing that game for the first time…long story.

The PS2 is still dominating the console list (42%), I think at this point everyone should own two PS2, or you’re just not cool. I guess the only interesting part is that both the Gamecube and Xbox outperform their next-gen counterparts. How does that work with the Wii? I thought for sure the Wii would be beating the Gamecube at this point…seems strange. Click here to see the complete list…

No LittleBigPlanet Demo in 2007

No LittleBigPlanet in 07

Sure, I don’t own a PS3 yet, but it still hurts just the same. LittleBigPlanet seems like it will be a really fun game and I was interested to see and hear more about it. Unfortunately, the demo won’t be a available before sometime next year…oh well. Here’s the official quote:

“I can officially confirm that there won’t be a demo this year,” Ron Eagle, senior manager of PR for Sony Computer Entertainment America told me. But he did say he’s played 30 of the games 50 planned developer-made levels and that it’s a lot of fun. He seemed genuinely pleased about his time with the game, but his company won’t be showing more “LBP” at least until next month. Eagle could only add that the full game is set for a 2008 release.

Hopefully the demo will hit in early 2008.

TIME Picks Their Top Ten Games of 2007

TIME Picks Top Ten 2007

TIME has picked their top ten video games of 2007. I don’t know if I would really regard them as the authority on gaming, but whatever. It’s pretty much the list you’d expect, all the biggies are there, I think. I love this comment about Halo 3: “The epic storyline and the stirring score don’t hurt either.” I liked Halo 3 and all, but I missed the whole “epic storyline” part. I forgot God of War 2 came out this year, it seems so long ago. Here’s the whole list:
