After releasing the 3DS handhelds in the market , Nintendo had sold more than one million units to native japan alone.

In native Japan, more than 1 million Nintendo 3DS handheld has finally been sold, but more surprising than that is Nintendo’s expected sales for 3DS was not reached. Some critics said on a report that the high price of the 3DS and the limited number of great games that can be played in Nintendo’s 3DS are some of the factors why it doesn’t seem to be in high demands around the market.

Man’s Arm Becomes Permanent Augmented Reality Platform for 3DS

Written on May 03, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

When a card is just not enough for augmented reality, use an arm instead.

When Cranberryzero posted something on I Heart Chaos about tattooing Nintendo 3DS’s augmented reality card on his arm, he wasn’t kidding. And now he uses his arm as a platform for the console’s AR feature, which seems like a swell idea at first. But once you see the video, it’s quite a jittering disaster. What else can we expect from a guy who pulls out his wrist while standing and taking a video for a demonstration? Still cool, nonetheless.

Check out the video after the break!

After Nintendo 3DS and Pokemon Black and White, What Happens to the Nintendo Wii?

Written on March 12, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

The Nintendo Wii is not going down without a fight, but Nintendo admits it's a little occupied with the nintendo 3DS and Pokemon Black and White.

Currently not satisfied about the game releases on the Nintendo Wii? Well you’re not alone. Perhaps the entire Wii-population is already wondering if the console still got some juice left in its lifespan as Nintendo shifts their focus to “two big balls” they’re juggling, the Nintendo 3DS and Pokemon Black and White. For the past couple of months, we’ve seen titles from the “mmm.. okay..” to the “screw this I don’t need another party titled game,” which makes us wonder if Nintendo still cares about their revolutionary console.

“There’s content coming, and we’ll be sharing more, certainly, in the weeks ahead,” said Nintendo President, Reggie Fils-Aime. Well, there’s your answer. The console’s still got some tricks under its sleeve before E3 and “more news” will be revealed during the expo this June. And with the Legend of Zelda celebrating its 25th anniversary, we’re quite comfortable saying that they won’t leave the Nintendo Wii out of the loop. Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, anyone?

Hit the break to see the IGN interview with Nintendo President, Reggie Fils-Aime.

Nintendo 3DS Dominate Hardware Sales, 3DS Games…Not So Much

Written on March 03, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

And Japan goes wild with the Nintendo 3DS but 3DS games miss the mark in the sales chart.

No surprise here. With a year worth of hype, speculation, excitement and hysteria, Japan didn’t fail to please the Nintendo executives as the Nintendo 3DS console dominated the sales chart; and it only needed two days to do so. The Nintendo 3DS has sold 374,764 units throughout the week which is expected for a highly marketed and ground-breaking item.

3DS games on the other hand did well too. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to bank the 1st or even the 2nd spot as the 3DS game Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask only mustered a 3rd place finish below PSP entries Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity and SD Gundam G Generation World. The Professor Layton game banked an impressive 119,591 sales, while other 3DS titles also managed to enter the Top 10 chart.

Hit the break and see the complete console and games chart.

Super Mario Bros. Soon on a Nintendo 3DS Near You

"In the interests of adopting new technology for the Super Mario Bros. tradition, I am now making a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Nintendo 3DS system." ---Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo

Did you miss Super Mario? Then, you must jump for joy because your favorite Italian plumber is back and he’s got some 3D surprise for you.

The new Super Mario Bros. game for the 3DS is now on the go. The news was confirmed by Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto.

“In the interests of adopting new technology for the Super Mario Bros. tradition, I am now making a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Nintendo 3DS system.”

However, some details about the game remains unknown yet. But Miyamoto added that players are up for superb features.

“I think Tezuka-san is exactly right about making something that families can enjoy together,” he explained, “but I also think it’s important to always use the most advanced technology for Mario in order to create something no one has ever seen before.

“Of course, it’s important to make sure people still say things like “Falling down the holes is the most fun!” but something new is necessary for other aspects of the games, and it’s those new elements that make a Super Mario Bros. game what it is. ”

We last saw Marion on a 2D output for Wii in 2009. Miyamoto didn’t give out much information on when will it launch. He finished off the conversation with this statement:

“I want to show everyone as soon as possible what the new Super Mario Bros. will be like on the Nintendo 3DS.”

Nvidia to Reveal Tegra 2 3D Chip at Mobile World Congress?

Written on January 24, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

Things are starting to heat up as Nvidia might catapult the mobile and tablet device market into the third dimension.

Reports have leaked a snapshot from Nvidia’s presentation for the Mobile World Congress or MWC. And if the rumors and the picture is for real, then it seems Nvidia will be launching Tegra 2 3D processor later this year for future mobile gadgets that will be having, you guessed it, a 3D screen. Based on a Dual Cortex A9 that’s generously clocked to 1.2 GHz, the Tegra 2 3D processor seems to be up to the challenge of setting the trend for future mobile and tablet devices, which may spell trouble to the Nintendo 3DS, Intel and perhaps even the juggernaut we call Apple.
