Oooh Monster Hunter Tri bundle with Classic Controller Pro

Its funny that they're bundling the Classic Controller Pro since they're not selling it by itself. Its even funnier that they're selling in the first place because it seems like a waste of money but, here is the press release anyways...


Bundle Will Bring the Highly- Anticipated New Controller and Popular Franchise Together for the Ultimate Monster Hunting Experience on the Wii System

SAN MATEO, CA, and REDMOND, WA, - January 25, 2010 - Capcom® Entertainment, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, and Nintendo of America today announced an exciting new bundle featuring one of the most highly anticipated titles for 2010, Monster Hunter® Tri, and combining it with the new Classic Controller Pro™ for the Wii™ system. The Classic Controller Pro's more traditional control configuration will give gamers the ultimate Monster Hunting experience when the bundle becomes available in North America this April at a suggested retail price of $59.99.

"Monster Hunter Tri has made a huge splash in the Japanese market, and we're confident the bundle with the Classic Controller Pro will give fans in North America plenty to get excited about," said Steve Singer, Nintendo of America's vice president of Licensing. "Gamers of all kinds enjoy playing games on Wii. Monster Hunter Tri delivers an incredible new experience on Wii, while the Classic Controller Pro gives players even more control options for their favorite Wii games."

The new Classic Controller Pro includes a second row of shoulder buttons and ergonomically friendly grips. The Classic Controller Pro plugs directly into the Wii Remote™ controller, and until now, has been available only in the Japanese market.

The Classic Controller Pro will be compatible with more than 450 Wii, WiiWare™ and Virtual Console™ games. The Classic Controller Pro bundled with Monster Hunter Tri will be black, while both black and white versions of the controller will also be available separately at a suggested retail price of $19.99. The game will also be available without a controller at a suggested retail price of $49.99.

Making its North American debut on Wii this spring, Monster Hunter Tri is one of the most strikingly beautiful titles developed for Nintendo's Wii system. Pushing the hardware to the limit, Monster Hunter Tri depicts a living, breathing ecosystem where humans co-exist with majestic monsters that roam both dry land and brand new sub-aqua environments – a first for the series. Offering the player varied control configurations to suit their style of play, players can choose between the Classic Controller Pro, Wii Remote™ and Nunchuck™, or Classic Controller™ to slay the monsters that inhabit the world.

The Monster Hunter series has sold over 11 million units worldwide and has become a social phenomenon in Japan giving rise to training camps, dedicated festivals and numerous licensed products. According to Media Create, Monster Hunter Tri sold 520,000 units in its first week of release in Japan and became the leading title sold across all platforms for the week of its release.

Work scedule = fail

I hate my work schedule because when I do work I get home so late most nights I don't feel like doing squat. I also hate my work schedule because from day to day I never know when I'm working. My Dad might say "You'll be working tomorrow" but, that doesn't mean that I'll be working tomorrow. I need a license, car, and a new job.

Why Sega will never make hardware again

Remember back in the 90's when Sega and Nintendo were like a sibling rivalry? Yeah, well that has all changed today and that is part of the reason Sega will never make hardware again. In the business there are always rivalry's. Coke and Pepsi, Pizza hut and Dominoes...etc. When you break your rivalry to start working with the company you had the rivalry with (especially in this case) you can't go back. I say especially in this case because no one had a rivalry like Nintendo and Sega (back in the day). Sega mocked Nintendo and Nintendo mocked Sega right back. NOW Sega actually is part of the company Nintendo that they had the rivalry with. Case in point, Mario and Sonic at the olympic games. Sega couldn't wipe the image of Sonic and Mario together in the game from our heads if they went back to making games. Sonic is part of Sega just as Mario is with Nintendo. So to those who actually think there is a Dreamcast 2 think again.
