Square Enix has released a brand spanking new trailer for Dragon Quest X Version 2. And for some reason they won’t announce a Western release date…..watch the trailer below. The game’s fidelity looks great.
That’s why he wants Nintendo to go third party. He can get a PS4 and Xbox One for himself but a video game console for his kid? No Way! Seriously, how do you rob your daughter of an experience you enjoyed as a kid when you can more than afford to provide that for her!?!?!? Make sure to subscribe to TheRealAtomicToaster on YouTube.

Toys R Us will be having a special on Pokemon Y for the Nintendo 3DS on December 6th and 7th. 3DS owners can pick up Nintendo’s masterpiece for $19.99. A rare occasion, as Nintendo games almost never go directly on sale.
I don’t want to toot my own horn……but I’m going to. The popular gaming site, ‘The Escapist,’ used my Xenoblade Chronicles sales article in one of their stories today. This is the same website popular game journalist Jim Sterling works for. I’m honored and happy that they would use my piece as reference. I want to thank all of you, the PE faithful, that spread the word of the Playeressence.
Even with the launch of the Xbox One and the PS4, the 3DS is still the system to own worldwide. VGChartz is reporting the 3DS shifted nearly 1.3 million units last week. Selling more than 795,981 units in North America alone. Wow, just wow. Why does Iwata still have his job? Nintendo should be putting their old games on smartphones, so people don’t HAVE to buy their consoles to play their games. The Wii U isn’t doing to shabby either.
This isn’t 100%, but I think it goes in line with all the reports i’ve been posting on Playeressence. VGChartz is reporting the Wii U sold 197,597 units in North America last week, outselling the PS4 in North America. Add in Europe and Japan, and the Wii U sold over 270,000K for the week. Nintendo still has a lot of work to do. But it seems like their marketing and big games like Super Mario 3D World and New Super Mario Bros are carrying the system.

The Mario & Luigi Wii U bundle seems to be one of the most popular bundles from Nintendo, as the set is sold out on Best Buy.com and is one of the top sellers on ShopTo.
