Consolidation

PS2 price cut coming soon on Eurogamer.net reports "Ł129.99 is set to be the new PlayStation 2 price within the next three to four weeks" in Europe, quoting some of those blabbermouth "sources." The sources also tell them Halo 2 has slipped to April 2004, but this is backed up by a Microsoft release schedule. Also, here's the entirety of one of the shortest press releases we can recall: "Mesquite, TX - Sept. 3, 2003 - id Software(tm) and Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) have confirmed that Vicarious Visions is developing DOOM 3(tm) for Xbox®, the console version of id Software's highly-anticipated blockbuster title headed to the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft." Also, Gloomy outlook for game console sales (thanks Mike Martinez) reports: "Sales of video game consoles are expected to slump until a new crop of machines is introduced in a few years, according to an industry analyst." Also, Ubi Soft sends along the following about XIII: "PlayStation®2 and Xbox(tm) fans can get an exclusive sneak peak at exciting single-player and multi-players levels along with a full length soundtrack produced by San Francisco-based label Future Primitive Sound. The purchase of this two-disc will be applied to the full product when it becomes available. Nintendo GameCube and PC fans can receive the enhanced CD soundtrack by pre-ordering." Finally: Nokia's N-Gage Gets Second Look (thanks Mike Martinez) on the launch of the N-Gage portable game machine.

3. For the first time.. Sep 4, 2003, 16:16 ethic
 
For the first time in, who knows how long, the GCN outsold the PS2 in Japan last week. Thanks to FF:CC and Tales of Symphonia, of course. Granted, it was only by about 300 units (35,600 for GCN, and 35,300 for PS2), but it's still great. Meanwhile, the Xbox sold 650 -- which is just sad.

You see, this is the beginning of the end for Sony. I'm serious, yo. And Microsoft, they should just give up completely in Japan; they've lost the country. Stick to the U.S. and Europe.
