Wii U: People Nintendon’t Want It

As of last week, the original Wii is no longer in production.

Will E3 Bring Cheaper Consoles?

Long time game analyst Michael Pachter believes that console prices will be dropping at next week’s E3.

Donkey Kong Country Returns Headed To The 3DS

One of the announcements at this morning’s Nintendo’s Direct presentation was that Donkey Kong Country Returns would be making the trip from the Wii to Nintendo’s handheld.

Disney Wants A Piece Of The Skylanders Pie, Introduces Infinity

With Activision making money hand over fist ($500 million and counting) with their Skylanders game and figure series, it was only a matter of time before the copycats began.

Iwata Comments On Wii U Sales

Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata, recently gave his impressions on the Wii U’s early sales figures. “At the end of the Christmas season, it wasn’t as though stores in the U.S. had no Wii U left in stock, as it was when Wii was first sold in that popular boom. But sales are not bad, and I […]
