Cheapest Gran Turismo 5, Demon’s Souls & Fifa 11…..in Singapore!
Being a small market, we usually don’t get the goodies that are sold in other parts of the world, especially when it comes to collector’s editions of games and stuff.
But, interestingly enough, the local distributor for Nintendo in Singapore is calling for pre-orders for a very pretty Red Nintendo Wii to commemorate Mario’s 25th Anniversary in games!
What is interesting to note is that the Mario themed Wii would only be available in Japan and if it does really make it to our shores, it would have to be NTSC/UC in order to be compatible with games sold locally. So, in actual fact, we could be the only country, as of writing, to get an “American” Red Wii!
A small difference in the package contents as well. Instead of having a pre-installed 25th Anniversary Super Mario Bros preinstalled into the Wii, Singapore Wii owners can look forward to New Super Mario Bros Wii instead.
More updates to come as I confirm the availability of the console.
Being Asians we are all about getting the cheapest deals and bang for buck. This post draws up how much motion gaming will cost you for all the current generation consoles.
Let’s lay down a few assumptions:
Controllers enough for 4 players to participate
SRP will be used for price comparison
Xbox 360 Kinect
Coming in at a cool $229, the Kinect comes with one free game, Kinect Adventures.
The Kinect can support up to 4 players. Dance Central being the only one at the meantime. Right now, most developers are putting a soft cap on how many active players are supported.
Potentially more can be supported as time goes on but how big is your living room?
A basic bundle that comes with one game typically starts from $139. This nets you a Move controller and a Playstation Eye. Good for one player only.
Each additional player needs at minimum another Move controller which costs $69. As of writing, 4 players appears to be the cap for most games. NBA 2k11 states that it can support up to 7! But for comparison sake we’ll be taking the price for 4 players.
A bundle with 3 additional Move controllers will set you back for $346.
Released late last year, the Wii Motion Plus completes the controller set that had taken the world by storm since 2006.
A controller that needs little introduction, a set of controllers consisting of a Wiimote, Nunchuck and Motion would cost $90 (our store prices).
As a set of controller are found in most Wii consoles these days, all you need are 3 more, which would cost an additional $270.
So, as it stands now, the Microsoft 360′s Kinect actually is the cheapest if you were to consider a 4 player setting. But in a 2 player setting, the reverse is true – The Wii would be the cheapest, follow by the Playstation Move.
Being the 6th Mario title on the Wii, this game actually went under the radar for me for the longest of time.
Slated to be released on the 23rd of May, the initial impressions of Mario Galaxy 2 appears to be one of greatness.
I’ve been reading preview after preview after preview but this one sure makes me want to get a copy of the game, but alas my budget for games is on ModNation this month.
The problem with new games is that even myself and, I dare say, all those game magazines in Singapore do not always get their hands on a review copy of the game.
Will a Mario title ever suck? Definitely no with this one. Our customers seem to enjoy all things Mario, after all, New Super Mario Bros has done very well and we are asked weekly if the first Mario Galaxy is ever coming back on the shelf, now you know.
Small reminder to all, the game will be out come May 23rd, stay tuned for it.
The typical wii owner in Singapore plays and loyally sticks to a few game titles. Anything that has Sport, Fit, Mario or Rabbid I’m pretty sure they have it in their library or have played it at some point in their Wii experience.
This new title has just arrived in the store and having not heard of it at all, I was surprised to find out that it is actually very well received in terms of sale numbers despite being ravaged by the critics.
Games on the Wii typically do not go down very well with professional game journalists who would probably give a better score to a macho FPS as compared to a cutesy casual video game. But, the Wii has changed the landscape of gaming. The dollar is with the casuals. Farmville anyone?
Just Dance earned a Metascore of 48 by 20 critics, however, it earned a glowing 8.5 rating from 40 users. Such a vast difference in opinions, the only way to settle the argument would be to settle it with raw, hard sales figures.
Since launch, Just Dance has sold over 2 million copies, a figure that has been verified with the less dodgy numbers tracking company, NPD. Fastest selling, most unheard of Wii title? Most probably!
It sure helps when you have ad campaigns like this.
My sales pitch for this game? It only requires Wiimotes! No dance mats, no instruments! How’s that for affordable?
In case you didn’t know we sent out a few demo discs to certain lucky individuals to give the game a go.
First up, we have ManLing who gives us a pretty detailed account on what to expect for Monster Hunter TRI which hits the stores in slightly over a week’s time!
By Au ManLing:
Before I had the Monster Hunter Demo for wii, I only played monster hunter on psp. I will mainly compare the differences between wii and psp. And perhaps some great features of wii monster hunter. It’s quite disappointing that there’s no multiplayer feature in the demo. There’s 2 quests in the demo version: a 2 star mission and a 3 star mission. I have only tried the sword so far.
The graphics were definitely better than that of psp screens. The environment of the game is much clearer and more detailed.
With the controls guide given with the demo, I find the controls for the remote and nunchuck are difficult than using a psp. Takes me around 20minutes to get used to the controls. Perhaps this gives an extra edge to the game. While, I think it’s sufficient, it’s better to have a pro controller. Gamecube controller will not work on this game, but the classic controller can though. The game feels much better with the classic controller.
The monsters can run/escape from area to area. This is much better than the psp versions as I remembered that once the monster run to another, it seems to disappear.
The monster gets harder to kill on the 3 star mission
Besides from the usual monsters’ roar and the hunter’s sigh/grunts, the music changes as the difficulty level of monster one is fighting gets higher.
Camera is controlled by the D pad on the remote. I feel it’s very difficult to locate the D pad especially when you’re fighting.
The loading time when the player gets from 1 area to another is too long. As I move from 1 area to another, it gets quite irritating for me.
The monsters aren’t responsive to player’s attacks.
It’s more difficult to run and throw items at the monster at the same time.
No tutorial, one would have been really useful especially for players who have never played the monster hunter series before.
I have a few more demo discs on hand as well. Anyone willing to rush out a demo review can email me for a copy!
