Marginalia: 9.8.09 – Feeling a Little Goofy Edition

He's.  So.  GOOFY. JoystiqFinal Fantasy XIII is coming to Japan on December 17, 2009, sliding just under the door of 2009 and reaching back to grab its Indiana Jones hat.

Gamasutra: Ever purchased a theme for your game console? Yeah, me neither. That would explain why they have to be developed at a loss.

Kotaku: Age of Empires III is getting bundled and jumping back up to $50. Ensemble Studios will probably be the Tupac Shakur of video game developers. Get it? Because he has released as many albums since he died as he released in life? It's a joke.

1UP:  Looks like gamers in Japan are eating up the PS3 Slim.  Now they can play FFXIII on the system for which it was intended.

GameDaily:  Disney hired Alex Seropian, founder of Bungie Software and one of the folks behind Halo.  They’re also worked on an under-wraps 2010 title.  Crossing my fingers for a Goofy FPS.
