Can Warner Bros amount to EA

If One True Media didn't just become a bitch then Crash Bandicoot: The Sins of the Father Part 8 would have been up already.

Her'es the thing, EA's stronghold in in TPS game's came from Lord of the Rings video games, they don't have the license anymore, but they have BioWare, you get one, you lose one.

Now Warner Bros has the license, the first thing they released was Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest. It was an average start, a good game, but an average start. EA had a tremendous start and an awesome game. Warner Bros is likely going to be more or less consistent with their license, having given it to Snowblind Studios. It looks as if they are trying to beat EA's Lord of the Rings video game fame with Lord of the Rings: War in the North. If this succeeds, you can expect Snowblind to make a Hobbit video game using the Dark Alliance Engine while working on a sequel to War in the North.

This is how it'll work out if War in the North is successful. Snowblind will be commissioned to making the Hobbit video game, parts 1 and 2, which they'll work on while working on a sequel to War in the North likely. The Hobbit will receive positive reviews, but it wont be as good as War in the North because of the developers desire to work full time on War in the North 2 and because they'll have less freedom when making the game.

Will Warner Bro's Lord of the Rings best EA's? Look at the games:


The Two Towers : 8.3/10
The Return of the King : 8.9/10
The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth : 8.4/10
The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age : 8.5/10
The Lord of the Rings: Tactics : 7.7/10
The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth II : 9.0/10

Warner Bros

The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest : 6/10

You choose.

The Playstation Vita

It started with the launch of the Playstation Portable as a competitor to to the Nintendo DS. When one company came out with a new model for their handheld system, the other did as well. So this put Sony and Nintendo as the primary competitors for the handheld market, always releasing new stuff to compete with each other in every way.

This was until the Nintendo DSiXL was released; Sony did not release any handheld back, at this time people assumed it to be because of the PSPgo's failure. Sony did not even discuss something like the PSP has a long or short life ahead of it. Nintendo had already announced the 3DS.

It was after the Nintendo 3DS' launch that people began to speculate a PSP2, for about two month's these rumors were halted due to the many presumed official revelations of the Sony Experia Play, the Playstation Phone. Then the big announcement came, the NGP.

As the 3DS lagged in both sales and good quality games, with the most anticipated (yes, Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy is not going to come out) being canceled, Sony showcased the NGP, showing its power to the max, without giving any specifics.

At E3, Sony unveiled the NGP's spec's and details, everything about the NGP was revealed from price to hardware. The NGP became known as the Playstation Vita and from its time known as the NGP, it already had a blockbuster lineup in its hand, Call of Duty, Killzone, Uncharted and yes, Badman.

Also at E3, the Wii U was announced, and upon announcement, Nintendo lost a lot of shares. The Playstation Vita was then shown to replicate what the Wii U could do and on a modern generation console, no need to switch to the future. It can do what the Wii U controller can do, but more, such as a back touchpad and co-op.

To show their advantage over the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U, the Playstation Vita and the Playstation 3 showed off something they else they could do that Nintendo's products couldn't do: get good games and work together.

The 3DS' sales then bombed, Nintendo cut its price by $ 100. Nintendo then lost a lot of money and shares.

That my friends is the story of the Playstation Vita.
