FLIPS on DS released

Ok this entry was supposed to have gone up back when FLIPS came out on the 4th of December, but I've been a very busy bunny and haven't had enough time to do so.

So I posted about FLIPS back in October when they were announced. The four titles released being: FLIPS Faraway Tree Stories, FLIPS Too Ghoul for School, FLIPS Cathy Cassidy and FLIPS Artemis Fowl.

So the day they came out I had a look about in the shops to see if I could spot them, and here are the following.

HMV

Three in the charts in hmv

In HMV three of the FLIPS titles were in 6, 13 and 16 in the Nintendo DS chart.

GAME

In GAME two of the titles were at 8 and 17 in the Nintendo DS chart.

Waterstones

In Waterstones they were displayed with DS POS.

And finally

Sat proudly on my bookcase at home (is a little messy and needs sorting out however)

I'm quite satisfied with the launch FLIPS had, along with Ruth Langsford from This Morning promoting it at an EA games show.

And Bernard Cribbins (who most people now will know him as Donna Noble's grandfather in Dr Who) has also helped promote them on the Radio.

I'm very happy to have helped in the development of these games at EA, I hope those who have purchased them for family or who are buying the titles themselves enjoy them.

Charts in GAME are defined by their head office, and usually contain games that are on offer, and they get told what to put (I know that as I used to work there) no idea about HMV tho.

Haha it's cool, you're not really our target audience, which is of course a young audience.

It is also a quite different from the 100 classic book collection as well, as far as I'm aware Genius Sonority are the only to have released other books on the DS, which in their case is aimed at a much older target audience and features not much in the way of interaction and is kind of a big text dump.
