I’m in a hurry now so I will give further details in 11 hours (the time I’m usually here). For a while, I have a good news and two other ones that may be good or bad according to your tastes.
The good one: Half-Life 2 is going to be released this summer, as announced by Valve. It’ll be shown in E3 2004.
The two other ones: Take 2 is the next company that seems like will go down, for there is a large discussion now on irregular transactions in the stock market and a lot of confusion in their financial numbers. An analist from Bank of America Securities, Gary Cooper, asked Take 2 to fire their director, Bryan Rant.
Last and also least, Tamagotchi is making a comeback this year. The big inovation is that now tamagotchies can communicate among themselves through wireless connection. That means they can make friends, give each other gifts, marry and have babies (though kids won’t see the mating scenes). Kids may also go to stores and buy items for their virtual pet. I can already see the terror, for kids with tamagotchies tend to spread faster than catgirls.
edit: another one: n-gage ended up being a Fiasco. Just for comparison: in its first week in England, Nokia sold 500 consoles - wheres GBA sold 540 thousands.
