November NPD’s have launched a Predator Missile at us, and lo and behold! Modern Warfare 2 sells a crap load. Selling 4.20 million on the 360, and 1.87 on the PS3, it’s almost mind-numbing how well this game has sold, even if it was expected.

Other big sellers were New Super Mario Bros. Wii which sold 1.39 million, and Assassin’s Creed 2 which sold 794.7 on the 360, and 448.4 on the PS3. One little thing to note is that Dragon Age: Origins sold 362.1 which is good I suppose, though I’m not liking the game so far.

The hardware side is much more interesting, with the 360 actually beating the PS3! Many people seem surprised over this, saying that the PS3 was going to sell more. But the numbers don’t lie. Also in other uninteresting news the Wii and DS sell a crap load, and the PSP is still a joke.

EA has announced that you’ll be able to go to hell in December with the Dante’s Inferno demo. This is quite an interesting move since Visceral’s last HD game, Dead Space, had no demo until after the game was released. Hopefully this’ll mean that people will get a taste of the game, like it, and buy it.

This is also great for people who seem to have their panties in a twist over how Dante’s Inferno the game is apparently ruining Dante’ Inferno the literary work. They can now intelligently decide if they should get the game or not instead of just flaming it on the interwebs with no knowledge of the game whatsoever.

The demo will be the very first moments of the game where you’ll battle Death (Yep, the Grim Reaper himself) and take his scythe which will be one of your main weapons throughout the game.  Also it should include a couple of cutscenes and a good chuck of gameplay for you to taste.  Sounds like quite the demo to me.

What do you folks think? Are you willing to give Dante’s Inferno a chance? Or dismiss it out of hand?

This week EA and Visceral Games have revealed the sixth circle of Hell “Heresy”. This looks very much like the common fire-and-brimstone representation of Hell. Lots of people burning and screaming, pretty nasty place I must say.

They also discuss the controversy surrounding the game, and make some interesting points. They are indeed taking creative liberties with the property to make it better suited for a game. Hopefully this works out for them, andI get more excited for the game every time I see it.

Check out the trailer below. What do you folks think? Has Visceral really took everything interesting about the book and ruined it? Or have they overstepped their bounds in making this game? Post in the comments!
