Just I was getting in to my Korg DS-10 for the Nintendo DS in order to support a possible trial in schools I find out that it's to be discontinued. Sheesh! What can a man interested in games based learning do when he see something a little bit special albeit it seems with minimal mass market appeal (look at Electroplankton), and then it gets pulled. There is an issue here in terms of people working to support schools and make recommendations for software to use when there is the distinct chance that what you find of great use may not be available after a certain date. What use is that?
I fear that wonderful titles such as Endless Ocean may also go this way. It seems such a pity when it is clearly a superb teaching and learning resource. What, if anything, can be done to ensure that schools can still access these resources?
Well, for those of you who missed it here's what you could have done with it. Ryuchi Sakamoto eat your heart out!
