Second iteration of PSP-only Medal of Honor may be headed to Nintendo's console, along with Alvin & the Chipmunks; Warhawk Bundle also spotted.
GameStop continues its tradition of stealing the thunder from companies' big reveal this week with a pair of product listings for Nintendo's everyman console. While one of those listings is most definitely situated in the kids-to-nostalgia-seeking-adults category, the other resides on the polar end of that spectrum.
Released last year as a PlayStation Portable exclusive, Medal of Honor Heroes brought EA's franchised WWII shooter series to the handheld format for the first time. Apparently, that experience will see an extended second tour, as GameStop has product gamespaces for Medal of Honor Heroes 2 on the PSP and Wii. The Wii listing is of greater interest due to the fact that no Wii version of Medal of Honor: Airborne--which ships for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC later this year--is planned. (The first Wii MOH game, Medal of Honor: Vanguard, was released earlier this year.) According to the retail site, Heroes 2 will ship November 6 at $49.99 for the Wii version and $39.99 for the PSP version. As of press time, EA had not commented on a potential Wii version of the game.
Created in 1958, Alvin & the Chipmunks have had their high-pitched squeals adapted to all manner of media, including cartoons, movies, and live-action plays. However, gamers' ear drums may still be in peril, as the second GameStop reveal of the day is for a Wii rendition of Alvin & the Chipmunks. According to online retailer, the crooning critters are slated to ship December 4 for $49.99, but no official announcement of the game has yet been made.
Also appearing on GameStop's Web site today is a listing for a Warhawk Bundle. Accompanying the online-only game in the bundle is a Jabra BT125 brand Bluetooth headset and bonus content in the form of videos, trailers, and behind-the-scenes footage for Warhawk.
Please note, while retailer listings frequently jump the gun on publishers' product announcements, they should not be taken as final confirmation of a game's existence; nor should the absence of a listing be considered as proof that a game isn't coming to a given platform.
Hmmm The Wii's trend might actually allow for Nintendo to gobble up the whole Sony corporation in a few years if it keeps up this trend. Oohhh Full Online Warhawk fighter game? Forget the bluetooth this sounds like a hella fun shootem up game lol. Even though its a flight sim.
MOH Heroes was a really good game on the PSP, but the storyline was WAY too short. I hope its much better and longer this time...
People need to understand the fact that Wii does not need games with extravagantultrasuperdelicious graphics. It needs games with a sense of uniqueness (in gameplay and in other areas) and with a Nintendo-esque story telling. If a new Medal of Honor can make that (which I find unlikely) it would be great, but I say we should wait for Metroid Prime 3.
I'm sure it will be good, I loved Red Steel and the reviewers were all wrong about it as with is far cry venegence. In my view this new medal of honour will be fantastic.
no no no, the wii doesnt want or need MOH. Call of Duty was bad enough. Alvin and the Chipmunks? oh thats a system seller. Hurrah for metroid and mario so i can forget about these games.
caybeirwouleyfe@ You don't know Alvin and the chimpmonks!!! I must be getting old! HAHA More games on the Wii sounds good to me. Hopefully this one doesn't suck. I'm still waiting on that killer FPS to really convince me. Metroid 3 anyone? WOOT!! Peace
What The Hell IS this, I thougth that after the sucsess of THe Godfather: black hand and Madden on Wii plus the bad sales of MOH Vanguard that EA learned not to make Crappy ports on Wii, but instead make Exclusives or at least really good ports. But no EA just wouldn't be EA without Crappy ports. ANd what he Hell is Alvin And the chipmunks.
"RaiKageRyu: omg... now Wii is getting PSP ports as well. That's just terrible." Well, the Wii already has a game that's also on the PSP: Prince Persia Rival Swords.
Mof honor Vangaurd was terrible on wii as a ps2 port how awful will this game be as a psp port the last game didnt even sell well.
if this MoH heros DOES come out... it WILL suck. if an FPS is to be any good on wii, it will need its own game, not a ported one. Also it shouldn't be rushed (i.e. red steel (underrated, yes. over-hyped, yes. but with what... several more weeks, 2 months tops, it could have been what it was hyped up to be.)) anyways. for sure MoH Heroes, or whatever its called, will suck, maybe it will be slightly better than vanguard, but no more than that.
I cant believe MOH is still franchising with the competition it has with Call of Duty! I dont like much of either (then again people have told me that COD2 is the best one, but I haven't played it). That said, COD4 looks awesome with the new time frame.
Just what the wii needed, another crappy port! And this time it's not even a console game, it's a handheld port, great...! /sarcasm
if they can make decent Wii MOH then it would be nice, but... i am concerned due to bad quality that Wii's WWII FPS out to us so far. But well, lets wait and see.
i had the first heroes on psp, and it was terrible! obviously a wii version would work better, but it's now becoming clear that the wii is just going to be given spinoffs of most major games. why cant they make a scaled down version of airbourne. surely that would be just as easy, if not easier
comthitnuong says (...)shooters tend to not do as well on the Wii...Unless the developers are able to nail the shooter formula for the Wii..But that is highly unlikely. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Actually that's more likely to happen than you think. Red Steel didn't make the cut, but are there any other Wii FPS' that aren't mere ports? Actually, are there many Wii-exclusive "traditional" games (in any genre)? I suppose the main problem with the system is that companies are merely porting games with tacked-in Wii controls. I suppose that when games that were built for the console from zero start to come out, this situation might change. For christ's sake, even two of the most successful games on the platform (TP and Super Paper Mario) are Gamecube ports in some level! Now take Wii Sports. Some of the most accurate controls on the system. A lot of people claim that Wii Sports isn't a game more than it is a tech demo. So even if it is a tech demo, tech demos are supposed to show *some* of a system capabilities. Imagine those elements implemented in a "full-fledged" game! Despite the system current success, developers are still way out on what to do with it. But with a little effort, they will "tame" it and all these doubts surrounding the system will fade. BTW, I'm not saying this WILL happen. I'm saying it is one of the possibilities.
As time goes on I think (hope) companies come to grips with the Wii control for FPS. When I first heard about the Wii I thought it would be a natural fit but I am not sure anymore ? Its still early in the game though so I will not give up hope. I thought Call of Duty 3 worked fairly well so maybe companies can build off what was done and make thier games better.
More crap Wii games from American third party publishers. Ignore this stuff, there's lots of good games coming from Nintendo and Japanese third parties.
Hopefully Heroes won't be bad... I love the MOH series and watching it flounder these days is painful.
comthitnuong Maybe is stupid companies like EA tried a bit harder, rather than just dirty porting. This one doesn't seem to have much hope though, as it'sbasically a sequel to a PSP only shooter, and EA is once again making it....
I wonder if one day the Medal of Honor will pull a Call of Duty and leave it's World War 2 roots and venture off into modern warfare.
The Heroes developers aren't making a smart move by putting Heroes on the Wii. The PSP would still work but not the Wii. Many Wii owners won't care about a game like that and also, shooters tend to not do as well on the Wii...Unless the developers are able to nail the shooter formula for the Wii..But that is highly unlikely.
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
