MCV Pacific Weekly Wrap-Up

ANZ Skylanders sales revealed this week, while Harvey Norman co-owner puts his foot in it with unthinking games comments.

  • Harvey Norman's outspoken Gerry Harvey has said he'd get rid of all 'leisure computers', leaving them only for the classroom as a result of the 'tragedy' of inert braindead youth they supposedly cause.
  • Queensland is still dragging its feet on passing the R18+ rating at a state level, causing pre-orders for God of War: Ascension to stop dead until the government can catch up.
  • Australia's Skylanders sales figures were revealed alongside the media launch for Skylanders: Swap Force, demonstrating local strength for the franchise.
  • IGN hosted the Black Beta Select Awards last Friday night, with most of the industry in attendance to receive their awards and enjoy the night.
  • Polygon writer Tracey Lien has been bumped up to the San Francisco office, being replaced by Jenna Pitcher.
  • There were many great titles created by local developers at the Global Game Jam's Sydney event, many of which took honours in the Awards show last weekend.
