Sony makes Korean gamers’ dreams come true by finally giving them Metal Gear and Dragon Quest

RocketNews 24:

Korean gamers and netizens are crying tears of joy now that Sony has announced it will be translating some of the most popular Playstation titles into Korean for the first time. This might come as a surprise for many considering the popularity of video games in Japan’s close neighbor, but for years fans of these series were deprived of the ultimate gaming experience in their native tongue. However, that will finally change this summer.

Described by many netizens as a “dream come true,” Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) announced recently on their official website and blog that two of the most popular series available on the PlayStation, Dragon Quest and Metal Gear Solid, will be localized into Hangul, slated for release in summer this year. This strategic move is accompanied by the release of the PlayStation 4, also localized, and was announced by SCE Korea CEO Shiro Kawauchi. Korean fans can definitely look forward to an epic summer of endless gaming.

This move by SCE Korea generated much buzz on social media, and netizens have expressed nothing but immense joy at this news:

“Currently, the most likable Japanese person in Korea is the CEO that announced the news.”

“I can’t believe this is happening in my lifetime!”

“Kawauchi actually shed tears and told the Korean users, ‘Thank you so much for waiting.’ What a great guy.”

“I am cancelling all my summer vacation plans to buy the PS4.”

Looks like Sony played their cards right this time. Not only are Korean fans super-hyped for the PS4, their CEO also shot to fame as one of the most popular Japanese people in a country where netizens are often hostile to the Japanese.

Every time we see a classic controller, the nostalgia feelings kick in.

The only thing better than recreating those memories would be doing so in cake form. Queue controller molds.

The silicone mold features three different controllers based off the classic Nintendo, Sony and Sega systems. It allows for two of each controller to be made at a single time.

Nintendo bundling Wii U with two games and an extra controller for $330 on May 30th

 

Engadget:

 

You don’t have a Wii U yet, right? You’re forgiven, and far from unique (in that respect, anyway — you’re a unique snowflake otherwise). Should the eighth entry in the Mario Kart series pique your interest, Nintendo‘s got a pretty fantastic bundle arriving at the end of May with a copy of the game, an extra Wii Remote Plus gamepad, and a free download of one of four games. All that stuff comes together in one box for $329.99 — a pretty great deal considering the Wii U system in the box costs $300 by itself!

The price isn’t a measure of Nintendo trying to save you dough, but one of a company struggling to make its game console relevant against growing competition from Sony and Microsoft. The PlayStation 4‘s sales are already outpacing the Wii U, at 7 million consoles compared to Nintendo’s 5.86 million (as of Dec. 31 2013); Xbox One isn’t far behind at 5 million.

With major third-party publishers like EA and Ubisoft largely abandoning the Wii U, Nintendo’s leaning on first-party software to sell the system. And that’s where this Spring’s Mario Kart 8 comes in, the latest entry in a series going back to the Super Nintendo era. Like Microsoft offering Titanfall bundled in with Xbox One, Nintendo is bundling a major, exclusive release with its console, and taking a hit on profits from game sales in favor of putting more Wii Us in more living rooms. The hope is, in the long run, more consoles in homes means more game / accessory sales (which is where the real money is for Nintendo).

The company also announced this week that it’s going to skip holding a press conference at E3, instead opting to host a Nintendo Direct video stream.
