On a home console, Dante’s Inferno offers players a view of hell never before witnessed in gaming, much less any other form of digital media. Only literature has managed to captivate our minds so brilliantly, even though the console version of Visceral Games’ reinterpretation of the first segment of Dante Aligheri’s Divine Comedy failed in bringing audiences to hell. So too does its portable sibling so blatantly miss success, this time by Artificial Mind and Movement, known more recently for such titles as WET and, well, many a PS2, Wii and portable console ports.

Nintendo has officially announced its handheld successor to the DS line, the Nintendo 3DS. The 3DS will take advantage of "3D effects without the need for any special glasses."

The new hardware will support backwards compatability with Nintendo DS and DSi software and is expected to go on sale in Japan by March 2011. To ensure full support for its predecessor expect the 3DS to have two screens,  touch functionality, a camera, and support for downloadable software.

More details about Nintendo 3DS are to be revealed at this year's E3 which starts June 15.

Street Fight IV on iPhone Now Available

The announcement has come to fruition and the iPhone version of Street Fight IV is now available for your portable fighting pleasure.

Gameplay is your typical on screen buttons-in-the-corner setup. The fighting action tries to stay centered on the screen, but fat fingered individuals may want to be wary as the buttons do take up quite a bit of space. Another thing to note is that there are only eight fighters available: Ryu, Ken, Blanka, Guile, Chun-Li, Dhalsim, M. Bison and Abel.

Street Fighter IV on iPhone can be had for $10.

Pachter: DSi XL Won’t be a Success at Launch

The release date and price point of Nintendo's DSi XL was revealed earlier this week at the Nintendo Summit. Hitting North America on March 28 and retailing for $190, the XL will feature a larger screen and stylus. Industry analyst Michael Pachter has weighed in on the discussion surrounding the over-sized DS, saying the device "won't be a success."

"I think that the price point of all DS products are too high, and think that a price increase for the DSi XL is not going to sit well with consumers," Pachter explained to IndustryGamers. The difference in price between the DS Lite and the XL is $60, and I'm not sure that bigger screens provide the value that Nintendo thinks.  The difference between the DSi and the XL makes sense, but all three models are due for a cut, the DS to around $99, the DSi to $129, and the XL would then make more sense at $149. I don't think it will be a success at launch, since it costs only $10 less than a Wii."

Aside from the larger screen and stylus, the DSi XL does not feature any real improvements. It still has the same screen resolution and processor. Taking that into account, I think Michael is right on this one. The XL doesn't provide enough value for the increase in price.

Plants vs. Zombies iPhone Reaches $1 Million in Sales

PopCap Games has a track record of making awesome games. Their latest creation, Plants vs. Zombies on the iPhone, has been on the App Store for not even a month, yet it's already reached $1 million in sales. PopCap reports 300,000 units sold within the game's first nine days of availability.

I'm not surprised by the news though, considering how great the PC version is. Many iPhone owners have likely played it and decided to pick it up for some mobile zombie action. I know I would.

Do you like your DSi's camera but hate how no games use it? Do you like augmented reality?

Check out the new trailer to get the general idea.

Now Available: Final Fantasy I & II For iPhone

If you’ve been hankering for yet another handheld port of the original two titles in the Final Fantasy series, your wish has been fulfilled. Square has finally released Final Fantasy I & II on the Apple application store, making them available for purchase on both the iPhone and iPod Touch after a month or so of teasing their performance on the platform. Where cost is concerned, they’re priced individually at $8.99.

I’m only just downloading the first of the two as I write this, so I haven’t yet had a chance to actually sit down and have a go at the game, but I’ll be sure and report back with my findings. Until then, download your copy if you dare, and see for yourself whether or not the iPhone’s touch screen controls are at all complimentary to the Japanese RPG genre.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was Metal Gear Solid 5

Although creator Hideo Kojima has said numerous times that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is, in a way, Metal Gear Solid 5, it appears that it once was Metal Gear Solid 5 before it got a name change.

Kojima Productions public relations lead Jiro Oishi revealed that, early in the game's development cycle, it was called Metal Gear Solid 5: Peace Walker. For whatever reason, the "5" was dropped after E3, despite being flashed in many campaign promotions.

Peace Walker releases May 25 in the US.
