Now she can afford some truffles

Majesco announced that since the September release of Cooking Mama, they've shipped 500,000 units. Quite a surprise for a budget DS game about cooking!

It's exactly what Majesco needed after almost being sunk by Advent Rising and Psychonauts. They decided to focus more on budget games for handheld systems, and they got lucky right out of the gate. Given their success with the last game, it's no shock that Majesco has chosen Cooking Mama 2: Dinner with Friends. We've liked Majesco ever since they started making Sega Genesis 3 systems and selling them for $20. Which, by the way, is another example of small and cheap working well for the company.

1. That Genesis 3 thing says Majesto. With a t. Not a c. Did they make the mistake or did you?

2. Not it!

3. How can you shift the blame when your name is on the article JC?

4. I didn't write the whole Internet. The guy who wrote it for vidgame.net got it wrong.

5. The company Majesco - with a 'c' - took over manufacturing duties on the Genesis/Mega Drive for a time. They also published the first Cooking Mama title in the United States. I assure you, there is no error in JC's post regarding the name (or spelling) of the company in question, though I take no responsibility for the site to which he links. As he stated, we don't write the entire internet! But oh, if we could edit it....
