GamerNode Weekly Recap 3/18 – 3/24 : Bono the New MacGyver?

February’s NPD numbers were released this past week, much to the delight of GN Editorial Director Chris Pereira. Somehow, people have managed to find Wiis in stores (we sure can’t) and snatched them right up, making it the second most bought system in the month. The DS blew everything away, while the PSP outsold the PS3 by a margin of almost 50,000 units.

Devil May Cry 4, a series long associated with the PlayStation brand, will be making a move to both the Xbox 360 and PC, in addition to its release on PS3. We also found out that Ace Combat 6 would be released on the Xbox 360 — and that it might be exclusive. Final Fantasy XIII was also mentioned in passing as a title that might not remain a PS3 exclusive title.

Sony UK’s Ray Maguire called the US a land of "cheap people" due to the major markup that Europeans have to deal with when purchasing a PS3. That doesn’t make $500 or $600 any easier to swallow, Mr. Maguire.

Game Informer confirmed the existence of a new Xbox 360 model, along with some specs and details. There still has been no official word from Microsoft, but that is most likely a move to ensure that Xbox 360s that are on store shelves now continue to sell — if word were to get out that an improved 360 were coming, sales might dip in the meantime.

Duke Nukem Forever‘s development was "screwed up." There’s some breaking news for you.

In an attempt to prevent the upcoming Mercenaries 2 from being produced, a Venezuelan group has called upon none other than Bono to make this a reality. Bono is a co-owner of Elevation Partners, the group that owns Mercenaries 2 developer Pandemic Studios.
