In terms of strictly business literature and lingo, Nintendo is on life support. For the first time in company history, Nintendo is losing money due to it's piss-poor decisions of tricking the market into believing that next generation had arrived.

The Nintendo Wii is one of the biggest commercial laughingstocks of gaming history as there are very few, if any gamers who actually do any serious gaming on that console. It is unfortunate for Nintendo as they are clearly holdi...

After twelve years of market domination, PlayStation®2 continues to pulverize the market as it achieves an insurmountable lead over every single gaming console released. With over 200 million sold and counting, PS2 has no signs of stopping, even surpassing the Nintendo Wii in head to head sales on a monthly basis.

The numbers dont lie. There are more PlayStation units in every household across the globe than any other console. Even after 12 years and 8 years respectiv...

Forbes magazine is one of the most reputable magazines in North America. Forbes will always remain affiliated with the wealthier and finer things in life.

Dark Sniper is glad to see that PlayStation Vita is receiving universal praise from all major critics. 2012 spells the first time for everything. This will be the first time that Nintendo will receive a defeat in the handheld market as PlayStation®Vita gives the Nintendo 3DS the curbstomping it deserves for saturatin...

This news is very welcoming for all the new adopters in the PlayStation® Vita family. Sales numbers show that PS Vita has made over 120% increase in sales growth in one month.

This further solidifies Dark Sniper's claim that no other gaming company has the staying power and influence that PlayStation has. With it's unrivaled features and undoubtedly the greatest software lineup known to man, PlayStation® Vita is in prime position to give all gamers the fir...

Michael Pachter has been around the gaming industry long enough to accurately depict any future trends of the industry. Dark Sniper definitely agrees with his statement about Nintendo being in disarray because they are.

Nintendo made the mistake of not making the Wii future proof for long term security. Now it seems as if they are hitting the reset button and finally giving gamers something that the other consoles have had since the mid 2000's, which is high definition ...

Dark Sniper knows greatness when he sees it. Naughty Dog's newest adventure looks to be knocking on that door. The Last of Us is an example of Naughty Dog using the PS3 to it's full power. Whereas Uncharted 3 only used about 70%. Given how great this game looks, there is no need to jump into next gen because The Last Of Us is a next-gen title.

Dark Sniper fully expects this game to be mentioned along with Metal Gear Solid 4, Heavy Rain and Uncharted as one of the grea...

Netflix would be wise to add this feature to their already great portfolio of titles. As an early adopter of 3D, Dark Sniper will be delighted to use this feature exclusively on his PlayStation®3 Home Entertainment Processor.

As it stands right now, only PlayStation®3 provides consumers the ability to jump into the third dimension with a complete library of blu-ray movies, Netflix and the greatest exclusives known to man. He will enjoy this fine addition as Netfli...

This was a great week for the PlayStation division and Sega, as Binary Domain is the highest selling console title this week. Dominating all other platforms including Nintendo Wii, 3DS and definitely Xbox 360.

Binary Domain shows off the technological muscle that PlayStation®3 provides, as facts show that everyone in the eastern shores tore down the streets of Japan as they rushed to their nearest game store to get their copy of Binary Domain.

The signi...

Once again, Sony Computer Entertainment makes a brilliant business decision by giving all PlayStation®3 owners the choice to enjoy one of the finest exclusives of 2011 at an affordable price.

Killzone 3 is just the start of a new revolution that will change the structure of how future business models incorporate their plans into the next generation. Games such as SOCOM will benefit from this, opening the opportunity for each and every owner to re-capture the moments that...

This will be one of the most short lived handheld wars in the history of gaming. Nintendo has followed their own tradition of releasing new products with little to no innovation.

The Nintendo 3DS performs exactly like it's predecessor with their only new feature being 3-dimensional graphics, something Dark Sniper already enjoys on his PlayStation®3 Home Entertainment Database.

PlayStation® Vita comes completely armed as the first and only gamin...

The Legend Of Zelda is a great series that has left great memories for gamers. Dark Sniper remembers A Link To The Past being one of the greatest RPG's released around that time.

Unfortunately, the series has stagnated for quite a while. Nintendo has not been able to recapture the same magic they achieved with Ocarina of Time, another great game in the series.

This is likely due to the fall of Japanese game development. Nintendo has taken a huge blo...

PlayStation®Vita is like the second coming of Christ, everyone will listen as Sony takes command of the next generation handheld war between Sony, Nintendo and all other competitors.

2012 spells another year for Sony dominance as their robust and flawless design of the PS Vita will win over consumers on a rapid scale. This is a great year for gaming, especially on the Sony front. Dark Sniper looks forward to all of what PlayStation has to offer in the next coming months. ...

Nintendo's Wii-U will be released with plenty of skepticism and rightfully so.

Dark Sniper has been around long enough to know that Nintendo always tells the same story over and over again. One of the main reasons why Dark Sniper is so skeptical of the Wii-U is because it's just playing catch up to what we have today.

This is the year 2012, Nintendo should have released this system in 2006. Instead, we were treated with last-gen tech with a gimmic...

As a fighting game aficionado and PlayStation enthusiast, Dark Sniper is enthusiastic about watching the best in the fighting genre mix it up in battle.

When Street Fighter X Tekken is released, there will be a lot of bodies on the floor as Dark Sniper will launch a full assault on anyone who crosses his path. Getting caught in the crossfire of the Dark Sniper experience will be similar to how Daigo Umehara got his ass kicked at EVO 2011.

Dark Sniper respects Michael Pachter's opinion. He is a longtime veteran of the gaming industry and he provides an unique insight to the business itself.

Nintendo will definitely be fighting an uphill battle with the Wii-U. On paper it looks to have decent potential. But beneath the surface, Nintendo is just recycling ideas from the Sega Dreamcast. It will be interesting to see if Nintendo can find a way to convince casual owners to buy their system after the Wii stagn...

The return of Jet Set Radio almost makes Dark Sniper forgive Sega for giving Shenmue the shaft for 10 years. JSR is one of the most unique and quirky titles ever created. Its cel-shaded art style will hold up very well in todays high definition era.

Its been about 2 years since Sega announced that Dreamcast classics would be coming to all platforms. Yet Shenmue is still inexplicably missing from the lineup. Anyone who owned a Dreamcast in the beginning of the last decade...

When it comes to the originators in interactive innovation and quality, Dark Sniper gives his full respect and props to Sega. Despite their questionable decisions, they always took risks to bring the consumers the most thrilling and innovative games of all time.

Before there was Kinect, Sega released the Activator. A quick search on Youtube will show you that the Sega Activator and Microsoft's Kinect are essentially the same device. The only difference is that the form...

Dark Sniper definitely remembers the "good ol' days" of gaming. Before there was online passes, digital distribution, DLC, and online gaming, there was a different realm of video games which in retrospect required us as gamers to use more of our imagination.

There used to be a time when Crash Bandicoot dominated the console market when the surge of the PlayStation's popularity propelled Crash to a higher mascot status than Mario. NFL Gameday was the best f...

Back in it's day, Sega was a driving force amongst digital gaming. Before there was Sony Computer Entertainment, there was Sega. Sega's sole intention was to disrupt Nintendo's momentum by providing a superior 16 bit console, a mascot who was easy identifiable by the fans, and a mature image that older gamers in the 90's could relate to.

During the time period, Sega released the Game Gear. Providing gamers with a handheld that was ahead of it's time. I...
