Wii Set to Deliver New IP for 2011

At a Japanese investors meeting yesterday Nintendo released a teaser site for a new original IP currently set for a spring 2011 release date in Japan. The game is called “Pandora’s Tower” and the teaser site features a picture of a girl with a tattoo on her back (which you can see here) she also speaks a few words (all in Japanese) before her picture comes into focus. Hopefully there will be a lot more information released for this game as its Japanese release date draws nearer. Looks like yet another Japanese Nintendo game to add to the list of 2011’s “We want this localized ASAP!!

PSP-3000 gets a price drop to $129.99

The PSP-3000 model is getting a price drop this Sunday to $129.99 to clear up stock to make room for the NGP and also to combat the imminent launch of the 3DS in Japan in a few days and in about a month in North America and Europe. I think this is a good move on Sony’s part since the PSP has done relatively well, but not what you would call stellar when comparing to the lifetime sales of its direct competitor, the DS. There will be a price drop on some games that have been labeled as Favourites or Greatest hits, priced at $9.99 and $19.99 respectively.
