Current EA COO Peter Moore has recounted the Xbox 360’s Red Ring of Death saga, that stuck the company for a tune of $1,150,000,000 in repair costs/warranties.
“We were seeing failure rates and starting to get reports through customer service,” Moore said.
“This was a thing where we couldn’t actually figure out what was going on.
“We knew we had a problem. I remember going to Robbie Bach, my boss, and saying, I think we could have a billion dollar problem here. As we started to do the analysis of what was going on, we were getting the defectors in, it was a challenging problem for our engineers, and we couldn’t quite figure out what it was. We knew it was heat related. There were all kinds of fixes. I remember people putting wet towels around the box.”
I suggest reading the full article over at Eurogamer. It is very interesting.
I always knew Suda 51 was a visionary, but this is taking it a bit far! In a new interview with GameReactor, Suda 51 says joked that No More Heroes probably won’t happen within the next “15 to 25 years”.
“Yeah, No More Heroes 3, I get a lot of requests from fans and I’m very grateful for that, but I’m thinking it may happen within 15 years or so? (laughs). Maybe not through Kickstarter, but GungHo would of course be supportive if that were to happen.
I think I have the vision that Travis forgot something, so I really have to have him to go back and get back what he has forgotten. But yeah, I definitely want to make it possible, but I also want to create something new, so maybe within 15 to 25 years (laughs)!”
“There’s been a lot of discussion on my channel and not a lot of games, but don’t worry, reviews galore are coming!… Until then, maybe a little talk on this whole “angry gamer” thing might be in order!”

Comcept has just released a teaser trailer for a game titled “Red Ash”. Many are speculating that this is a spiritual successor to Mega Man Legends.
A post in the Mighty No. 9 KickStarter page says:
Now what in the world could this be…?
Well…whatever it is, we decided to give our backers a special first look at it!
If you want to know more, you are all just going to have to wait until Independence Day to find out!
We can’t say anything more until then, but we think you get the idea. Please share this video with all your friends, and help spread the word!
We should here more about Red Ash at the anime Expo this weekend. Inafune-san will be holding a panel saying that he has a special announcement that “may interest Mega Man fans.”
Nintendo Recognizes they let down a Number of E3 Viewers this year, will Work to Improve Next Year’s E3
Nintendo has discussed their E3 2015 showing, and acknowledged the disappointment from fans. In the latest meeting with shareholders, Satoru Iwata and Shigeru Miyamoto have elaborated on the topic.
Splatoon been selling like crazy since it launched at the end of May worldwide. Nintendo didn’t expect Splatoon to sell so well there would be stock issues in Japan. Company president and CEO Satoru Iwata discussed Splatoon’s surprise sales below.
As some of you may have seen the TV commercials we have been airing recently, “Splatoon” is a brand-new title and not a title from an established series. It has a very unique and fantasy-like setting. This game, inspired by squid squirting out ink, is played by human-shaped characters with squid-like features shooting, instead of squirting, ink at each other, and the team that paints the widest area in its team color wins. Having received high recognition from our consumers for its novelty, this title’s sell-through sales reached 1 million units in less than a month from its release. We feel very grateful for this, since our view was not so optimistic prior to release, for it being a non-series title.
As a side note, hopefully Nintendo can change their mentally when it comes to new IPs going forward. And I would LOVE to see a Splatoon 2 on NX!
