In the News #29 – 2/19/1008

Daily News for February 19th, 2008.

  • Toshiba announced today that it will stop manufacturing HD-DVD players. Which means that the HD-DVD has pretty much lost the High-Definition war. Who could have known that Sony was making a good decision with making the PS3 a Blu-Ray player? Weird.
  • Capcom has announced its demo for the upcoming Lost Planet: Extreme Condition on PS3 will be available on the UK PlayStation Network on Thursday, February 21st.
  •  According to The Famitsu Marketing Data Service 1,729,034 Playstation 3s, PSPs, and Playstation 2s were sold across Japan in just the month of January. The PSP was the most popular piece of Sony hardware sold during the month, with almost 400,000 units. The Playstation 3 sold 166,000 units in January in Japan. And somehow, after seven years on the market, the Playstation 2 still managed to sell 74,000 units in January in Japan.
