Skype Behemoth

Posted in Tech by Neil Koster on March 25, 2009

skype-logoSkype is the worlds largest long distance phone call provider!  It is quite clear that VOIP is the future and it is also abundantly clear that Skype is the users weapon of choice. Even though Ebay (Skype’s Parent Company/owner) has not regained any of the massive $2.6 Billion it shelled out for the telephony company a few years back  it is clear that Skype is poised as the forerunner of Internet communication so eventually they will get their return….watch this space.

It’s official, the Wii is the fastest selling Games console of all time (yes even faster than the PS2). According to Sotoru Iwata, Nintendo Chief, the Wii has surpassed all expectations by selling in excess of 50 million units worldwide. Phew that is a lot of Wii Fit! The popularity of the Wii and the 100 million selling DS platform, prompted Iwata to state his company’s surprise at the success: “Almost no one expected them to reach the current level of mainstream acceptance. It’s even beyond what we possibly hoped for,” Anyways its time for the next generation is’nt it?

Resident Evil Outsells….Everything!

Posted in Tech by Neil Koster on March 19, 2009

Now I was going to write a long flowery piece on how Games are outselling other forms of entertainment media but I feel to argue either point of view would be pointless. Let me show you simply why.

1.> Resident Evil was released on March 13, 2009

2.> It has sold more than 40 ooo ooo (thats forty million) copies worldwide

3.> It has sold more than than the worlds biggest band U2’s latest album, No Line On The Horizon.

4.> It has sold more copies than the entire UK Singles Charts, including downloads!

5.>  It has generated more sales revenue than the top 5 cinema blockbusters currently in the UK Movie Charts.

Basically 1 in every 170 people has it and it has only been on sale for 6 days . Nuff said!
