New Resident Evil: Degeneration TGS 08 trailer for the CG movie


Wii Edition for WiiA new trailer has been unleashed on the unsuspecting masses for Resident Evil: Degeneration, the upcoming new computer generated Resident Evil feature film that reunites both Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield!

As you can see from the trailer below, the movie looks very similar to Resident Evil 2, except it reportedly takes place (at least partially) in a zombie-infected airport. But it even has the token little girl, how much you want to bet that it’s Sherry Birkin?

Code Veronica X on GameCube (playable on Wii)What’s even greater about this CG film is that Paul Mercier and Alyson Court return to reprise their voice acting roles as Leon and Claire in the movie. Paul voiced Leon in both Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 4, while Alyson voiced Claire in both Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica. This will definitely lend credibility to the movie and make it that much closer to the feel of the games.

Resident Evil: Degeneration is set for release in America later this year on blu-ray and DVD disc (too bad it won’t be released in theaters here like in Japan, I’d definitely go see it!).

Prison Break: The Video Game confirmed on DVD box. Release in February 2009


Prison Break - Season 3 DVDAlong with the Prison Break - Season 3 DVD / Blu-Ray release comes an ad for Prison Break: The Video Game. Based on the TV show, the Brash Entertainment-developed game will be released in February 2009 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Previously actor Robert Knepper, who plays T-Bag on the show, said: “I don’t think it’s quite done, but I heard that on the wind last year that they were trying to do it. You know the whole thing with an escape, they were working on a videogame where you plot your own escape from prison.” — Via Kotaku

Final Fantasy XIII Demo coming to PS3 in Japan due March 2009 via Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete on Blu-ray

Square Enix’s DKS3713 event was held this weekend in Japan. The company announced the PlayStation 3 will be receiving the first Final Fantasy XIII Demo in the form of a bonus on the Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete Blu-ray disc, which is set for release in Japan in March 2009.

1UP reports that it’s possible a downloadable version of the Final Fantasy XIII Demo could come to Xbox 360 around the same time, but Square hasn’t said anything at this time — let alone outside of Japan — and that seems unlikely given comments that Square will be finishing the PS3 version completely before they even begin porting the RPG to the Xbox 360.

Sony says PS3 is gaining ground on the Xbox 360 and that the Wii is “an expensive niche game device”


$400 40GB PS3Sony’s PlayStation 3, the 2007 loser in the fight for second place in videogame console sales, is said to be gaining ground on Microsoft’s Xbox 360. The PlayStation 3 outsold the Xbox 360 in the U.S. in the first five months of 2008 after trailing Microsoft’s console in 2007. New exclusive games, such as Metal Gear Solid 4, and the rise of Sony’s Blu-ray as the dominant high-definition DVD player may enable PlayStation 3 to hold onto its lead, report Bloomberg-interviewed analysts.

Sony CEO Howard StringerMeanwhile, the Nintendo Wii is outselling both those consoles put together. Sony Chief Executive Officer Howard Stringer said in an interview last week at the Allen & Co. media conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, that: “Wii isn’t a rival to the PlayStation 3 because it doesn’t offer the broader features of the Sony console, including the ability to watch movies and access the internet. I’ve played a Nintendo Wii. I don’t see it as a competitor [of the PS3]. It’s more of an expensive niche game device. We’re selling a lot of PlayStation 3s now and it’s still the best way to buy a Blu-ray player.”

Looks like the E3 rivalry started early. Although it’s more misinformation than anything else since the Wii does have internet functionality and is the cheapest of the next-gen consoles (because it’s not a media center). The PS3 has some great exclusives, but the Xbox 360 definitely has a lot more. So it all sounds like PR-speak to me, what do you think?
