Weekend Confirmed Episode 15

By Garnett Lee, Jul 02, 2010 12:00pm PDT It's a holiday weekend in the US and Weekend Confirmed celebrates with a massive show that includes the debut appearance of Shane Bettenhausen. He slips right back into form with Garnett, Brian, and Jeff and they launch into Whatcha Been Playin with a quick catch up on Final Fantasy 13 and few other releases from earlier this year before moving on to current games like Singularity, Crackdown 2, and Puzzle Quest 2. The group tackles the PlayStation Network Plus offering and getting the right pace to creating sequels in the Warning, along with some of your responses to last week's show. And has a full Front Page to close things out with everything from the opening of the WoW: Cataclysm beta to what may be up with Lionhead's Milo project, and a quick Starcraft 2 features round-up. Remember to hit the official show story comments to join the conversation.

  • Does the price have too be really high on the 3DS? I am not sure. We know that most consoles start out losing money for each one sold, and over time as tech becomes cheaper begin to make money sometimes years down the road. This model has worked for both Microsoft and Sony in the past. Given the extended life the DS has seen, and the amazing sales of the Wii, it's not to difficult to imagine Nintendo would have the war chest in place to finance a launch at a loss just to get the tech in peoples hands. That being said I think $299 is the price point. By the time we see this console launch the ipad will be set for it's next iteration and what is now considered the base model ipad will probably be available for $399 or $349. After all Nintendo did say Apple was their closest competition at this point.
