Japan’s Best-Selling Video Games of 2011

Mario Kart 7 is number one in more ways than one.

Media Create the video games retail sales tracker has published the best-selling video games in Japan for 2011. I would say that Nintendo software and hardware won 2011 overall.

Its interesting that the Sony PSP Go sold 15,563 units in 2011 while its only managed to sell 175,986 units overall. Compared to the Sony PSP which has sold 2,063,609 units in 2011 and sold 8,553,397 units overall.

Why they even bother making a PSP without a UMD slot? what where they thinking? Did they think there customers wont mind buying the same game twice?

The UK Best Selling Video Games of 2011

Why is Call of Duty always top?

The following show the sales for the various platforms and overall top-selling video games. Unsurprising Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and two EA games are the top three overall selling video games of 2011 with EA’s and Activision Blizzard domination of the industry and the popularity of Call of Duty. However that’s not a good thing.

Digital sales are not counted, although they will be soon.

The Best Video Games of 2011 and Other Awards

The golden face of video games.

With it being the last day of the year I though I would put together a list of the best PC, PSP, Xbox 360 and DS games from 2011.

To qualify for an award I must have played the game in the last 12 months but the game doesn’t have to been released in 2011. Also if I haven’t played a game yet it can’t be up for an award as I wont know whether its good or not.

Cave Story 3D Coming to Nintendo 3DS

Its 2D but in 3D!

The classic Cave Story will be coming to the Nintendo 3Ds as Cave Story 3D (the title originality is mind blowing). It will arrive on the 9th August in America and sometime in September in Europe. The only problem I can find with releasing this game is that you can already play better versions of the game for free on PC, PSP and DS and you can also get it on WiiWare. Making a so called 3D version seems more of a cash in to take advantage of the Nintendo 3DS, 3D gimmick than anything else. Anyway judge for yourself when the game finally gets released.

Have A Happy Super Scribblenauts Easter

God riding he's Big Yellow Striped Winged Bunny which he uses to steal eggs.

I hope everyone has a happy and enjoyable Easter whatever you believe in. I messed around in Super Scribblenauts to come up with something Easter related. As you can see God doesn’t seem to approve of Easter turning into a celebration of eggs. He uses a genetically modified winged rabbit to facilitate he’s diabolical plan to steal Easter eggs from children. I’m an atheist so whatever God.
