2296  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Sales are one thing, but how much do consoles get played? on: January 03, 2009, 07:33:45 PM
My wife's kept the TV so busy lately with Wii games that I haven't been able to play much of anything on any console.  The good news is that means she likes games, though.  I wonder what the "other" category is.  With my new setup, I just plugged in my Dreamcast again.  Maybe I'm not the only one. :D

Interesting new info from Nielsen, who does TV ratings.  Apparently, even if people have a PS3, they don't play games on it much...

http://www.nielsen.com/media/toptens_games.html

And here are the numbers in case that link dies:
Rank     Console     Usage Minutes %
1    PlayStation 2    30.2
2    Xbox 360    18.3
3    Wii    13.5
4    Xbox    9.1
5    PlayStation 3    7.7
6    GameCube    4.4
7    Other    16.9

So even the old Xbox gets a higher percentage of playtime than the PS3, and the PS2 is on top by a hefty chunk.  Wild.  Of course, these are just from the US.

I have officially moved into gaming overload.  Crisis Core on the PSP, Untold Legends on the PS3, both Burnout Paradise and Last Remnant (although LR is the back-burner game) on the 360, No More Heroes on the Wii, and I just found and picked up a copy of Dragon Quest VIII, which I've been meaning to play forEVER.  Before I got all of that, I was working on a new game plus playthrough of Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters... but I don't think I'm ever going to finish that.

...I can always stick forks into my eye and read the Wheel of Time again.

I've been thinking very hard about doing that too.  Er... reading the Wheel of Time books again, not the fork thing. :D  I know I'm going to need to before I read the final book, and it will supposedly be released late in 2009, so I'd probably better get started.

I recently read the last book in the City of Ember series, and it was really good.  In case you haven't read that series, I must say it's a quick, easy read (it's technically for teens), and books 1, 2, and 4 are great.  Book 3 is a crappy prequel that has nothing to do with the rest of the series, so feel free to skip it.

Started Crisis Core on the PSP last night, and am playing Untold Legends on the PS3.  It's fun being the cleanup crew. :D

My wife bought me a PS3, which was cool, because we planned to use any money we got as presents to buy one... so now I have Christmas money to spend on a game and such.

My in-laws (who I like) come over to our house every year, and most of the Christmas present action goes to my nephew, who's 5.  It's more fun to watch him open and play with stuff anyway. :D

Saw part of It's a Wonderful Life on TV and part of National Treasure 2 on Blu-Ray.  Otherwise, been watching TV shows on DVD: Simpsons, Fraggle Rock, and Dead Like Me.

This is weak.  Releasing old games with updated graphics is OK when it's been a few generations of consoles, like in the re-releases of old FF stuff.  The new FFT on PSP was outstanding, for example.  Stuff from that recent, though... it says "we don't have any ideas!"

You know, I've heard a lot of people say that about Hancock.  I totally didn't feel that way.  I understand why other people did, but I felt like the "twist" wasn't any crazier than having Jason Bateman's character being a totally forthright, honest, and nice PR guy.  No offense to anyone who is in PR (and I know there's at least one person here who is), but in my experience, that is not a job for nice, honest guys.

Then again, I have admittedly crappy taste in movies. :D

And they like to see how messed up they can make the swaps, like sending an atheist mom to a super-christian family and vice-versa.  It's always seemed like a horrible, horrible show to me.

Truly - I would recommend his books to anyone who likes sci-fi.  Most folks probably have no idea how many movies have been made from his writings.

Indeed it will, and it won't be pretty when it does.
