Who remembers the good old days when you were happy with having the colored version of the Game Boy? I never had that – not even the black and white one – but the joy of playing with my friend’s unit seemed to make my spirits soar sky high at that time. Kids of today [...]
Xbox was the first out of the online network gate with Xbox Live in 2002. Sony got into the swing of things four years later with PSN (though the paid subscription arm of their service, PSN Plus, just launched in 2010). At long last, Nintendo has decided to step up to the plate with the [...]
Has there been a single console generation where Nintendo hasn’t held the “distant third place” title when it comes to horsepower? It’s starting to sound like the Wii U will be no different.
At E3 this year, Nintendo’s gaming guru Shigeru Miyamoto said that the company’s next-gen console, Wii U, would support just one tablet controller. In response, the Internet howled. Perhaps still stinging from public reaction to the 3D feature of the 3DS, it looks like Nintendo has caved on the Wii U.

“I know! Let’s take our thin, super-cool 3DS device and make it bulkier!” That’s my interpretation of the thinking behind the “Expansion Slide Pad,” which was leaked today as a new peripheral for the 3DS. In other news… Wanna win a “Flame Red” Nintendo 3DS? Find out how after the jump.
So what happens when your gadgets die? Do they go to gadget heaven? Do you take them to a recycling center to make sure they are disposed of properly? Or are you one of the “I don’t care” people who simply throw them into the trash bin? Redditor Massenus has found the perfect solution for [...]
Nintendo has announced that the price of the 3DS portable game console is being dropped from $249.99 to $169.99 on August 12th. If you do the math, that’s a 32% price cut for a console that’s less than 5 months old. Nintendo couldn’t have picked a louder way of announcing to the world that sales [...]
