Miyamoto Says Nintendo’s Game Ownership Policy Should Operate “Like A Toy Company”
mynintendonews.com/2013/06/13/miyamoto-says-nintendos-game-ownership-policy-should-operate-like-a-toy-company

“What’s really important is viewing Nintendo almost like a toy company where we’re making these things for people to play with,” he said. “As a consumer you want to be able to keep those things for a long time and have those things from your youth that you can go back to and experience again.”

“I really want to retain that product nature of the games that we create so that people can do that and have that experience. To me that’s something that’s very important about entertainment itself. So from the approach of continuing to create things that are entertaining for people, that’s an important direction for me that I want to maintain.”

^^Interesting. Yeah, I'm bad about keeping up with this stuff, but I guess that means he doesn't exclusively work for Microsoft then.

360 was finally knocked off the top selling spot in the US by the 3DS.

Injustice: Gods Among Us was the best selling title selling just 100K combined. Software sales at their lowest since 2000.

Sega has released a new trailer for Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode 2 showing off the new features in store for players of the free-to-play MMO. One of the key additions of this new expansion is the new playable race, Dumans. It’s kind of like a human but spelled with a “d”.

In addition to the new race, Episode 2 features entirely new weapon categories, a new class known as Bravers and a new planet to explore, Vopal. This new episode will be released in Japan on July 17th.

I have no clue if this is a full remake or if it's just a 3D-ifying of the original game, but apparently a 3D version of Shinobi III is coming to the 3DS.

If it's an actual remake, then fuck me, dream come true. Easily the best game in the series, and I'd love to see all of that 90's design work rendered as 3D models.
If it's just a re-release with the sprites layered over each other in 3D... well hell, I might still just throw my money at Sega anyway.

Its a 3d classic, so its just the genesis game in 3d, they did the same with sonic, hang on, twin bee, urban champion and space harrier.

Didn't the bug one go up like this weeK? I think Damrey went up before E3 so it might be alittle while yet.

Sorry it's much more lame than that. Like other SEGA classics on 3DS in 3D it's just the Genesis game but altered to be in 3D like a pop up book.

Oops sorry missed that. In that case you might want to check out some other Genesis classics they have. Also should still check out Shinobi.
