 Nintendo Wii Falling Behind PS3 in Japanese Console War

The Nintendo Wii has been the front runner in the console war since it was launched a few years ago, but it looks like the Wii’s luck may be running out now. The PS3 has taken control, and the Wii continues to fall behind in hardware sales.

The Nintendo Wii’s sales have been lower than the PS3’s in the last few weeks, and it now seems that it may be in trouble. Satoru Iwata even said that the Nintendo Wii is in an “unhealthy condition.”

On the other side, it seems fans want a price cut, but Nintendo is shutting that down quick. It seems Nintendo will continue to rely on their software to help the system, as the company has officially announced the release date for Wii Sports Resort.

Wii Sports Resort Release Date Announced

Nintendo has announced that the popular Wii Sports “sequel” , Wii Sports Resort, will be released in Japan in June, and the Americas in July.

Wii MotionPlus was supposed to release around the same date as Wii Sports Resort, but Nintendo is only promising the game at that time. It won’t be too much longer before we are obsessing over a Wii Sports game again.

LittleBigPlanet: More DLC On it’s Way

LittleBigPlanet is one of the biggest games to hit the PS3, and with any big game, it must have DLC. LittleBigPlanet has been really good about bringing a substantial amount of good DLC to the game, and the newest DLC is no exception.

Media Molecule is bringing all kinds of amazing content to LittleBigPlanet this time with new costumes including some new Heavenly Sword costumes, a Monkey King costume, and more this month. Media Molecule will also be releasing some gameplay patches as well for the game.
