The Nintendo 3DS's $250 price tag will be slashed to $170 on August 12 in the U.S., after only being on the market for a little over four and a half months. This is either a really smart move by Nintendo or a really desperate one. We'd wager it's the latter.
Netflix has been getting a lot of flak for raising its pricing, but today, together with Nintendo it has a new proposition: streaming video to the 3DS. This makes the 3DS the first dedicated handheld gaming device to get Netflix.
Nintendo's Wii U stole the show at E3, but Nintendo downplayed its technical prowess, opting to place focus on the console's tablet-like controller instead. We know the Wii U can do HD graphics at 1080p resolution, but now we know it can support 3D games too.
Nintendo's next-gen console, the Wii U, has a big old screen on its controller. It's already known that it'll be used for playing games, but it could also be used to play video, such as streaming movies from Netflix.
While Nintendo is being careful not to rule out the possibility down the line, comments made by company president Satoru Iwata are making it clear that Wii U is less about the "we," and more about "you." As in only you getting to play with your fancy new Wii U controller.
More proof that Nintendo still does not "get it" — Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has confirmed everybody's worst fear: the Wii U will once again be a gimped box. It will not be able to play DVD or Blu-ray discs. What a huge shame.
There's no doubt that Nintendo stole the show at last week's E3 with its new 6.2-inch touchscreen Wii U controller. Without providing much on the actual Wii U console itself, gamers have been left in the dark as to how powerful it is. A new report says the Wii U is 50 percent more powerful than a PS3/Xbox 360.
Nintendo doesn't like to talk specs. Instead, they like to talk experiences and feelings. Those are all fine and good, but come on, we wanna see some numbers! Well, here they are:
Nintendo just unveiled it's new console, dubbed the Wii U. As rumored, it will deliver 1080p HD graphics with a new tablet-like controller that features a 6-inch touchscreen smack dab in the middle of it.
A sneaky developer was getting an early look at Nintendo's next console, which is set to be unveiled in couple of weeks at E3, and he managed to take a video showing a rough idea of what we've got in store.
