Capcom’s stance on Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition

By Spencer . March 29, 2007 . 4:42pm

One of the more juicy, surprising and completely unconfirmed rumors comes from a Gamestop listing of “Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition”. A reader over at GoNintendo pointed it out, but the original listing vanished from the face of the internet. Instead of just reposting the rumor I shot an e-mail over to Capcom to see […]

  EB Games / Gamestop is dropping the price of Red Steel and Splinter Cell: Double Agent $20 to $29.99 this week. Neither Wii game got outstanding reviews, but for $30 you can try out some FPS / sword fighting action on the Wii. That’s a fair deal right? If you’re not into the whole […]

EB Games has box art up for Super Paper Mario, which looks fairly real even though it has not been officially confirmed by Nintendo. The game also has a scheduled release date of April 23, 2007. Dates on EB Games aren’t necessarily confirmation, but it’s safe to say we’re going to see Super Paper Mario […]

GameStop may rip you a new one!

By Rolando . February 7, 2007 . 9:07pm

I’ve heard plenty of cases where GameStop employees will steal reservation money you put down towards a given game or console and will make up the excuse "Sorry sir but we can’t find a copy of your reservation within our system" or something akin to that. It’s convenient, too, since GameStop now uses a new […]

Riviera PSP remake coming the USA?

By Spencer . February 2, 2007 . 11:43am

  All of the Atlus news has been focused on either Izuna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja of Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner. Both games come out this month and maybe Atlus has been too busy to announce they picked up Riviera: Yakusoku no Chi for a North American release. Gamestop / EB Games has a […]

Final Fantasy PSP for preorder already?

By Rolando . February 2, 2007 . 7:23am

PSP Fanboy recently posted an article about Gamestop listing Final Fantasy PSP for preorder on its website. At first, I was a bit shocked to see the game for preorder; then I was instantly reminded of how SCEA has this ridiculous policy where ports/remakes/whatever you want to call them won’t be guaranteed a release here […]

Chulip only at GameStop, but they have plenty of copies

By Spencer . January 24, 2007 . 8:37am

GameStop is going to be the exclusive seller of Natsume’s "kissing game" Chulip. Just because they are the only ones carrying the game doesn’t mean Chulip is going to be an instant rarity. Natsume sent over some reassuring information, “We don’t feel copies will be hard to get, GameStop has shown a great deal of […]

  I’ve seen copies of Jump Superstars at Fry’s and a Best Buy with warnings that the game is an import title, but now there might be a chance that Jump Superstars is going to be distributed in North America on a larger scale. D-Fuse, one of our readers, sent us an e-mail with a […]

Mobilize! More PS3s and Wiis on Black Friday

By Spencer . November 21, 2006 . 9:31pm

This afternoon I got a phone call from a friend telling me that there were more Wiis coming to Gamestop. I sort of shrugged it off since the consoles were supposedly “sold out”. To my surprise Gamestop is going to have both Wiis and PS3s to get you in the door on Black Friday. Now […]

Video: Where the Wiis are (inside Nintendo’s factory)

By Spencer . November 9, 2006 . 7:48pm

You saw the pictures of the boxed Wiis, now see the video. Assembly workers are busy stacking Nintendo Wiis inside trucks for distribution and people are manually packing extra Wii remotes. At the beginning of the video Perrin Kaplin says, “we think the demand is way bigger than the supply.” Do you think that four […]

If you missed your chance on reserving a Wii, hop on to Gamestop’s site tomorrow evening (based on CST) and purchase a bundle online. The price of a bundle is $699 plus tax and shipping. Sure it’s pricey, but it sure beats jacked up eBay prices. There is a limit of one Wii bundle per […]
