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.

China Approves Nintendo 3DS

Written on January 11, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

Nintendo gets a golden pass to China as the local government approves the selling of the Nintendo 3DS there.

In a country where almost all consoles are banned, Nintendo got China’s approval to sell the Nintendo 3DS there. However, the Nintendo 3DS will be taking a different name as it will be called the “iQue 3DS”. iQue is Nintendo’s partner inside China. This move apparently got a couple of advantages as the much anticipated 3D console makes its way into a market where the Xbox 360 and PS3 have never even touched yet.

Ever since 2000, the Chinese government has denied video game consoles entry for this reason: video games might make their children neglect their duties and obligations to their country. However with the ban not covering PC gaming, it didn’t fully supress the video game culture.

Only Four Million Nintendo 3DS Available?

Written on January 10, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

1 person

Only four million Nintendo 3DS units will be available on its first cycle of sale. Time to pack up the tent and camp next to the nearest store that'll sell them.

Nintendo head honcho Satoru Iwata has recently announced that the company will only be selling four million Nintendo 3DS until the end of the fiscal year or March 31. So from the release date, which has yet to be confirmed, players will only have less than two months to grab a Nintendo 3DS from the first batch.

In what seems to be something like a scenery from Charlie and the Chocolate factory, the golden ticket aka Nintendo 3DS units will be distributed throughout the world. 1.5 million will be exclusively sold inside Japan while America, Europe, and the rest of the world will have to share the remaining 2.5 million Nintendo 3DS units. For sure, the numbers won’t enough even for America only!

A number of sites including Amazon.com have already started accepting pre-orders for the much anticipated handheld console, so reserve a unit now before it’s too late (or is it?) or face the wrath of endless lines with cranky, frustrated customers come release date.

The Fall of Nintendo DS and Sony PSP?

Written on January 01, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

In a recent US-based survey, more gamers are shifting to the smartphones as their choice handheld console for video games. With this seemingly inevitable paradigm shift, will the Nintendo DS and Sony PSP still be around when smartphones finally dominate the category?

The Nintendo DS and PSP are on the edge of their seats as they compete head to head not only against each other, but new against a new player as well, the smartphones. With the uprise of games being developed for the iPhone and Android which took the gaming scene by storm as new forms of gaming consoles, will Nintendo DS and PSP still survive a couple more years as the gamer’s choice? In a nutshell, it will all boil down to what a specific gamer wants and needs. Although the future looks a little grim for the current reigning handheld champs.
