A new batch of Nintendo downloads are fresh out of the oven, but the pickings this week are pretty slim.

Dino Patti, head of Limbo developer Playdead, has delivered his verdict on the industry’s retail model and stated, “There will be discs for a long time from now, but the world has adopted download. When your mum and dad start to download things, that’s when it’s everybody who does it.”

This week’s spat of Nintendo downloads has something for everyone, even Star Wars-loving, Brain Age-devouring, rock-climbing aficionados. Finally, Nintendo’s reached out to that notoriously vocal demographic.
On the Virtual Console, you’ll find 2D beat-you-up Super Star Wars, while a plentiful WiiWare harvest has brought forth both Rock ‘n’ Roll Climber and Nyx Quest: Kindred Spirits. You may remember Nyx Quest as that Kid Icarus-ish title that was forced to change its name.
There’s also an artsy take on Brain Age, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Full details on each game are after the break.

It’s the beginning of a new week, and you know what that means– wait! Come back! Cardgame collections and family friendly fare aren’t all you’re getting this week.
Oh sure, for you bloodless, fully clothed families of cardsharks, this week’s update brings an E-rated Three Musketeers swashbuckler, HB Arcade Cards, and Sudoku Student on the DSi. But there’s also Monkey Island!
Full info on each game is after the break.

Oh sure, you’ll sneak a DSi into your stringent, economy-friendly budget because your DS Lite’s obsolete insides can’t handle a spicy slice of DLC, but you’re probably some form of “hardcore” gamer. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, though – he believes that every member of your family pines for two full screens of their own. The greedy, disgusting pigs.
The DSi, Iwata explained in an interview with Yomiuri Shimbun (via Wired), by virtue of its ability to download games, can be “customized for the individual.” Thus, he hopes to “create a trend in which each family member will have his or her own DSi with their favorite software installed.”
Certainly, downloads are the way of the future, but isn’t Nintendo’s holy writ able to be stored on an SD card after being downloaded to the DSi? Couldn’t family members simply supply their own SD cards while gathered around a communal DSi?
We fear we’ve said too much.

In a statement made following the release of NPD sales data yesterday, Sony has claimed that 7.9 million downloads were made from PlayStation Network in January, up from 6.6 million in December.
There are now 2.9 million registered PSN users in North America, the company said, and more than 52 million downloads have been made from the service in total.
Jack Tretton, CEO of SCEA, commented of the results: “Coming off a great holiday sales season we see strong momentum behind PS3 in 2008, and feel confident about the year ahead… we have Blu-ray emerging as the de facto high def standard, the developer community is hitting their stride, consumers are recognizing the tremendous value and innovative services such as PlayStation Home are all in the works, so this is definitely shaping up to be a breakthrough year for us.”
