PlayStation announces sales figures in celebration of PS3’s six year anniversary, Halo 4’s campaign completion rate nothing short of stellar, and Skullcandy teams up with Electronic Arts for branded gaming headsets, THIS IS NICK’S GAMING VIEW!
Hello everyone and welcome to Nick’s Gaming View, you are here with your host, Nick McCandless. With Sony’s PlayStation 3 officially six years of age, Sony had announced worldwide sales figures of not only the PlayStation 3, but also its software releases along with the PlayStation Move. With over 70 million PS3 units sold globally, it’s safe to say Sony has surpassed expectations set during its slow start back in 2006. To go along with this sales figure, over 595 million PS3 games have been sold along with over 15 million PlayStation Moves. While many gamers consider the PlayStation 3 generation a downfall for Sony in the gaming realm and technically compared to its previous two outings it does fall short, can you really complain about these numbers?
With many first-person shooters discounting the value of a single-player campaign alongside a poor completion rate, 343 Industries has made Halo 4 an exception to the rule with not only a stellar experience, but incredible completion rate. With over one million Halo 4 players successfully completing the single-player campaign just shortly after Halo 4’s release, its clear the time and effort was put into the campaign and its been reflected by the gamers themselves.
Closing out Nick’s Gaming View, Skullcandy and Electronic Arts have announced a partnership for the upcoming shooter, Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel. Known for their diverse line-up of headphones and hands-free devices, Skullcandy is set to develop custom versions of its popular Skullcandy SLYR gaming headset inspired by the two new lead characters within Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel. Priced at $79.99, hardcore fans of the Army of Two series will now have the opportunity to gear up in branded communication gear further engaging the player.
