Nightly News Roundup

Monster Tale Not Hitting Stores Until Early Next Year

The world is going to have to wait a little bit longer to go on an adventure with Ellie and Chomp in Monster Tale. During an e-mail exchange with PR for the DreamRift-developed title, we were informed that the game was delayed by a few months.

As such, the title will miss its original release target of December, instead launching in early 2011. Monster Tale, published by Majesco, is an exclusive title for Nintendo DS.

Trials Developer Announces WiiWare Title — MotoHeroz

While many lament the lack of Virtual Console releases, others enjoy the plethora of offerings for WiiWare. Developer RedLynx is contributing to the Wii’s downloadable service by bringing MotoHeroz to the platform late this year or early next year.

The title is a “fresh new kind of side-scrolling, platform racing game,” according to Red Lynx. The developer boasts the game will have three main modes, including an online competition with leaderboards. MotoHeroz will also feature 100-plus tracks, widescreen support and 4 players locally.

Apple Takes A Jab at Nintendo, Sony

During an Apple event today, Steve Jobs made some rather serious claims in regard to the company’s iPod Touch. According to engadget, Jobs boasted that 1.5 billion “games and entertainment” apps have been downloaded on the Touch. Jobs mentioned that this number easily outsells DS and PlayStation Portable games combined, even without including iPhone figures.

    I won’t lament the Monster Tale delay because I want it to be good, but I do sort of lament Jobs’ judgment — though it’s certainly good PR. How many of those apps were, dare I say, free? :)

    1.5 billion entertainment apps? That includes all the crappy free demos and party bleepers. Saying the iPod outsells the DS and PSP is like saying the Mac outsells the Wii and and PS3. It’s a completely different market and the people downloading don’t know what they’re getting.

    More people eat apples than oranges and tangerines combined!

    I guess if it makes a good sound byte, who cares if it makes any sort of sense or has any sort of meaning.
