Nintendo's new console has been a blast for the lucky few folks who were able to get their hands on one of them, however the new technology isn't without a few teething problems. The strap that is supposed to secure the controller to your wrist has been having some problems, and of course, someone has decided to try and sue Nintendo over it. The suit claims that Nintendo's inability to provide a controller free of defects is against their own product warranty. "On December 6th, Green Welling LLP, of San Francisco, California along...

People have been breaking Nintendo controllers for years now, though now it isn't always out of anger. The Wii's wireless remote-style controller can be as much of a hazard as it is fun, slipping out of hands and into just about anything in the area. TVs, laptops, and even a few faces have all found themselves victims of flying Wiimotes. Nintendo has recently given some Wii safety advice, such as using small hands movements, instead of flailing your arms around, and always keep your hands dry. "There is even one site, Wiihaveaproblem.com,... Read more...
The New Yorker has in interesting examination of how Nintendo is winning the console wars by ignoring the fight for living room supremacy, and concentrating on making money. How? By simply delivering clever, fun games on an inexpensive, easy to use platform, and not worrying about beating their competitors at any cost: Sony and Microsoft's quest to "control the living room" has locked them in a classic arms race; they have invested billions of dollars in an attempt to surpass each other technologically, building ever-bigger, ever-better, and ever-more-expensive machines. Nintendo has dropped out... Read more...

Disney has announced that it's going to develop its own games for the Nintendo's Wii console gaming platform. Why not just license their characters to other developers?

"You'd do better in a volcano with a nitroglycerine towel." That's a quote from our E3 shuttle bus driver sans non-family friendly commentary. Welcome To E3 Here I am back for my 10th E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) - unfortunately, I missed out on the very first one in 1995. Hopefully, never again. E3 is many things to many people, but at the end of the day, it's about the games that are coming to market in the upcoming year(s). Some folks think E3 is just one monstrous arcade and to some degree it is. After all, attendees can see and usually play the majority of games... Read more...

DigiTimes reports that both AMD and Intel are making moves which are frustrating motherboard vendors. With regards to Intel, vendors are less than thrilled to see the company aggressively pulling in the launch dates for Woodcrest, Conroe, and Merom. With products launching months ahead of schedule, motherboard vendors now need to creatively figure out a way to get rid of existing product as attention will certainly drift towards the new platform once it is launched. In terms of AMD, the AM2 platform is not offering the same performance promises of Intel's new architecture. Regardless,... Read more...
The Revolution is over. Today Nintendo has announced that the console formerly known as "Revolution", shall officially be called "Wii"(pronounced "we"). "While the code-name "Revolution" expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer. Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else. Wii will put people more in touch with their games... and each other. But you're probably asking: What does the name mean?" I liked Revolution. It was a good name, and went well with what the console aimed for in terms of gameplay and diverse consumer... Read more...
Well, not officially, but the latest rumor has the system's CPU clocked at 729MHz, and the GPU at 243MHz(Compared to the Gamecube's 485/162). Nintendo has repeatedly stated that they have no intention of waging any sort of hardware war with Sony or Microsoft. "So, in terms of raw next-gen horsepower Revolution clearly can't compare with the Xbox 360's three symmetrical cores running at 3.2GHz or the PS3's Cell chip. But then again, Nintendo has repeatedly stressed that they aren't looking to compete with the tech heavies at MS and Sony. The result... Read more...
DigiTimes is reporting that motherboard vendors are voicing some concerns regarding ATI's latest Crossfire Xpress 3200 chipset and the availability of the matching ULI southbridge. Now that ULI is owned and operated by rival NVIDIA, vendors are worried that allocation of the ULI southbridge could become a serious issue. Fortunately for ATI, the company will be releasing a new southbridge dubbed SB600 next quarter which should offer a huge improvement over their previous southbridge offferings. However, it sounds as though motherboard vendors are still very much concerned in the interim.Motherboard... Read more...
