US media warns parents of sexual predators in Animal Crossing


Watch out! If your child is playing Animal Crossing: City Folk online, they may be chatting with sexual predators!

That’s the conclusion of an article on the Mid-Missouri Internet Crimes Task Force (catchy!), and reported by ABC 17 News. What’s more, according to the article, to reach the next level of the game you need to write letters, send gifts and – most ominously of all – “exchange favors”. In fact, according to Andy Anderson from said Task Force, “there is no reason an adult should have this game.”

Wii Speak gets detailed pricing info


If you’ve been craving the release of Animal Crossing Wii, then you’ll know that it comes bundled with the rather-exciting Wii Speak voice chat system that works as a smart speaker and microphone, so that not everyone needs their own headset. We’ve got the release date (December 5th), but until today, we didn’t know how much the whole bundle was going to cost.

Now, however, I can tell you. The full bundle – Animal Crossing and Wii Speak – will cost £60. Just the Wii Speak bundle will cost £25. Just the game will cost £40. That’s pretty much average for an accessoried game, I suppose. One for my Christmas list, I think.
