  • E3: 10 Games to Watch Friday, 5 Jun 2009 | 11:44 AM ET
    There were hundreds of games on display at this year’s E3. Some will be hits, some will be flops and some may never even make it into consumer’s hands. Declaring a “winner” among all of these options is something of a misnomer. By definition, the vast majority of titles shown at E3 are still months, sometimes years, from completion. What looks incredible in a polished, tightly controlled demonstration often turns out to be arduous (or worse, dull) when played in the comforts of your living room.

    What we’ve compiled here are the titles that seem most likely to be hits this holiday season. They may not be the best games at the show, but they’re the ones that will likely engage the general public.

    Nintendo President Satoru Iwata

    In its two-month history, the Nintendo DSi has already sold more than 1 million units. It is, by any definition, a runaway hit in the video game industry. But it wasn’t the company’s first effort at extending its lead in the handheld marketplace.

    E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo

    Make no mistake, business gets done at the Electronic Entertainment Expo – lots of it – but since it serves as the industry’s rallying point for fans and the general public, the fun factor is given a massive dose of steroids. This year’s extravaganza runs June 2 through 4.

  • 'Arkham Asylum' Explores Batman's Angry Side Thursday, 28 May 2009 | 4:05 PM ET

    Superhero games on the whole have a pretty sorry history in the video game world. Batman, in particular, has had to endure some really crappy titles bearing his name. That inauspicious streak could end with "Arkham Asylum," though.

    Blending action and racing, the game pits you against a collection of stunt drivers and racers in a reality TV competition. The plot of the game, though, is fairly irrelevant. The fun lies in driving at insane speeds and wreaking havoc.

  • 2009’s Top Selling Video Games Wednesday, 27 May 2009 | 11:21 AM ET
    We’re nearly at the halfway point of 2009, so it seems a good time to take a look at what’s driving sales in the video game industry.On the whole, this year hasn’t been overly kind so far. Software sales are down 6 percent compared to this point in 2008 – a $200 million shortfall. And while there have been a few solid hits, several of the year’s best selling games are over a year old.
