Saudi Arabia leading Xbox360 growth

I read here that Saudi Arabia is the fastest growing market for the Xbox360. Knowing the Arab world, the Playstation platform is usually the strongest selling game console. I wonder how well the PS3 is doing in Saudi.

Exclusive news from Microsoft officials: Saudi Arabia is now the fastest growing market worldwide for the Xbox360 console, surpassing Russia, who was leading the growth rate last year.

At the end of the 2008/9 financial year, the system achieved a growth rate of 100% in Saudi Arabia, and continue the company’s ongoing successes in the region.

InFomous & Prototype reviews

In May I posted about two upcoming open world games. InFamous & Prototype. A lot of people actually confused the two games because they shared so many of the same features.

InFamous is a PS3 exclusive and Sucker Punch’s first game on the PS3 has gotten overall good reviews. An average score of 85 on Metacritic which is lower than what I expected when I first saw the previews of the game. Anyway, here is the Gametrailers review video:

Prototype is a game developed by Radical Entertainment on the PS3, PC, and Xbox360. Prototype has an average score of 84 on Metacritic which is lower than what I expected too. Here is the IGN review video:

Two great looking open world games coming soon

Prototype is an open world action game developed by Radical Entertainment (an Activision studio). Release Date is 6/9/2009 coming out on the PS3, Xbox360, and PC. Check out this missions video to see what it offers:

InFamous is another open world action game developed by Sucker Punch and published by Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA). I see a lot of similar and dissimilar elements to Prototype. Release Date is 5/26/2009 coming out exclusively on the PS3.

Check out this developer video to see more about InFamous:

Both games offer a range of techniques and more freedom to the player to explore how to accomplish tasks.
