Microsoft's Xbox 360 console is six years old. The Nintendo Wii is five years old, and so is the Sony PlayStation 3. All three are due for an overhaul (can you imagine gaming on a PC that's half a decade old, or more?), and while they're still popular gaming platforms, consoles are really starting to shine as streaming media centers. According... Read more...

50 million. Regardless of who you are, or what you're selling, that's a lot of product.

You already know that Nintendo is slashing the price of its struggling 3DS handheld console from $250 down to $170, that's old news. And you probably also know Nintendo is throwing an apologetic bone to existing owners in the form of 20 free game downloads. That's old news too. But is there a way to get the discounted price AND cash in on... Read more...
The Nintendo 3DS was, at least in part, an experiment. The company had never launched a 3D-enabled console or handheld of any kind prior to it, so there was no baseline for how it would do in a market still curious about the true, tangible benefits of 3D. In fact, Nintendo has made reference in the past to avoid a 3D... Read more...

That's right, the two biggest smartphone platforms in the U.S. will soon host the cartoon character... Read more...
Nintendo may see companies like HTC, Google, Sony Ericsson and Apple as the real rivals in the mobile gaming space, but the whole 'can't beat 'em, join 'em' phrase doesn't apply universally. Yasuhiro Minagawa, a spokesman for the company, recently told Bloomberg that their strategy to develop software only for their own hardware "hasn't changed... Read more...
As with any new product that's as major as a new home gaming console, there's rarely a time where it's launched with all of the details filled in. That was definitely the case with the Nintendo Wii U. The console launched at E3, but only a handful of details were known. We knew that it would ship with a controller that could have video streamed... Read more...
Here's one you should definitely take with a grain of salt, but then again, a grain of "well, duh" wouldn't hurt either. Sony has built three PlayStation consoles to date. History would tell us that a fourth is on the way, the only question being "When?" Now, leaks and rumors are starting build surrounding the next generation PS console, with... Read more...
Nintendo just announced a next generation console -- the Wii U -- at the E3 Expo, Microsoft is rumored to be unveiling an Xbox 720 (or whatever the Xbox 360's successor will be called) at next year's E3 Expo, and Sony? Well, Sony is again rehashing its PlayStation 3 system, this time with a version that's lighter and a little easier on Mother... Read more...
If you either hoped or assumed that since Nintendo's Wii U is going to finally match, or perhaps (hopefully) even surpass the specs of the Xbox 360 and PS3, it would also support Blu-ray or DVD optical discs, don't hold your breath.  Buried in the 2011 E3 Analyst Q&A Session, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said the next-generation...

Remember when game consoles were for playing games and nothing else? Actually, don't answer that, lest you date yourself as an old fogey. The consoles of today are used for much more than just gaming, sitting in our living rooms streaming music, movies, and photos, tapping into Netflix, and even allowing us to burn a few hundred calories jumping...

The stock slump that followed Nintendo's Wii U announcement shows no signs of abating; the company's share price is down more than ten percent as of this writing. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has expressed surprise over the reaction. "Honestly speaking, the reaction to (Tuesday's) presentation and what I heard from people I met and the... Read more...
E3's going on this week in California, and gaming's on the menu. But it's not just Nintendo making news, AMD's taking their opportunity as well. The chip maker has this week revealed that every single Wii U sold will also be a sale for AMD. The new Nintendo home console will rely on AMD for HD graphics, with a custom-made Radeon GPU to power... Read more...
Games, games, and a few more games. It's E3! While Nintendo has stolen the show thus far being the first of the Big 3 to introduce a new at-home game console, Microsoft's continuing the push the Xbox 360 to new heights. They're announcing a ton of new games, most of which are laced with Kinect support, in order to drum up interest in a console... Read more...
Nintendo unveiled its second-generation Wii console today, dubbed the Wii U, but said very little about the console's specifications. The company confirmed that the new system will support HD video, but devoted its press conference to discussing the Wii U's controller. Rumors that Nintendo would incorporate a touchscreen proved accurate, but... Read more...
We understand why LulzSec chose to target PBS, Sony, and the FBI. But why they chose to attack Nintendo escapes us. Perhaps the hacker group, which has become very high profile of late (and always emphasizes they are not affiliated with Anonymous, another highly publicized group) simply wanted to stay in the news. Nintendo acknowledged the... Read more...
The greatest part about software updates? It allows the device you purchased to get even better.

When the update starts flowing to devices, it'll bring along a new Web browser as well as something... Read more...
Augmented reality has a long way to go before it's widely used in mainstream homes, but it's already progressing to a point where technology lovers are taking notice. The Nintendo 3DS makes great use of AR, and clearly Sony doesn't want to be left behind in the race. The company has recently revealed a new kind of AR, called SmartAR. In typical... Read more...
Nintendo has taken a page from Sony's playbook, even as the video game giant struggles to recover from the impact of its decision to remove Other OS support. The Free Software Foundation recently examined* the EULA and privacy policy Nintendo attaches to the 3DS; both are far more draconian than corresponding... Read more...
