Xbox 360 took the lead in July 2011 even if they have a low game sales.

A new NPD data has given the Xbox 360 the lead in a market that was the worst since October 2006. Microsoft’s console moved 277,000 units in July, a half of what it managed back in June. However, it was still enough to beat the sales of its competitor like Sony’s PS3 and Nintendo’s Wii.

Microsoft said that while NPD didn’t have a hard data for the other consoles, the lead was going to the greatest year in the Xbox’s 10-year history.The Xbox 360 was helped greatly by the Kinect, and the relative freshness of the slim Xbox 360 design that was released a year ago. On the other hand, the sudden drop in the console’s sales just revealed its poorer game sales. The total sales was down to 26% and saw just eight games got more than 100,000. A year ago, 19 games had broken the same milestone.

Nintendo Reveals Project Cafe as Wii U

Written on June 08, 2011 by Adam Eve

Wii's successor is no longer Project Cafe. It's now Wii U!

During the E3 2011 conference, Nintendo revealed that Project Cafe has been renamed as Wii U. The Wii successor is a white console with a six-inch touchscreen, two thumbsticks, camera, motion sensor, face buttons and base unit. Wii U features a roaming mode, wherein games are displayed on the touchscreen; and a fixed mode, where the controller outputs to a TV. In addition to this, Nintendo promises zero latency for this link.

Moreover, both screens can be used at once, although the touchscreen does not output in HD. However, HD is available when the controller is connected to a HD TV. As Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata said in E3 2011:

“As an industry, what we haven’t achieved yet is a game platform that is equally satisfying for all players,’ said Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata. ‘Yet, this is exactly what we intend to create with our new home platform.”

Nintendo has announced that it will roll out the next Wii gaming console at the E3 2011 conference to be held in L.A. this week. The details of the much-rumored Wii’s unique controller also have been confirmed.

Nikkei, a Japanese source which has correctly predicted numerous Nintendo rollouts in the past has confirmed that the Wii’s controller will have a touchscreen with a “size of about 6 inches.” The controller will have a camera on board as well, giving users tablet-like control of games and will be powered by a built-in rechargeable battery.

According to Nikkei, the release date of the next Wii could be in mid-2012. Nintendo is still not saying what it has named its next gaming console, code-naming it “Project Café” and saying nothing more than it will be “the successor to the Wii.” even though it’s being called the Wii 2 across the web and beyond.

These ‘rumours’ seem plausible, but Wii fans won’t get all the official details in anticipation of the Nintendo press conference at E3 at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at Noon EDT, 9 a.m. PDT.
