Autosport have revealed that Codemasters’ F1 2009 game will be released this autumn, but only on the Wii and PSP. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will follow sometime in 2010 after receiving a makeover to enable HD resolutions. All versions of the games will feature the new KERS kinetic energy recovery system, slick tyres and the full 2009 aero rules. All of the current cars and drivers will feature including the new and very successful Brawn GP team with their BGP001.

It looks like the traditionally weak Xbox 360 sales in Japan are on the up. Reuters today reports that in the week ending 22 February the Xbox sold 21,013 units compared with Nintendo selling 16,900 Wii’s and Sony shifting 15,967 PS3’s. A good result for Microsoft which reinforces the PS3’s recent poor sales performance in other markets.

Research group NPD has revealed that sales of Microsoft’s Xbox 360 grew 25.5% from 230,000 consoles sold in January 2008 to 309,000 sold this year. Nintendo made an even bigger gain with sales of its Wii console up 59.5% from 274,000 units shifted last year to 676,000 this year. A report on Sony’s PS3 sales will be up later today.
