First Look: Scribblenauts Unlimited

The Scribblenauts franchise makes its first leap into consoles with the arrival of the Wii U. But this is no port. Scribblenauts Unlimited explodes the entire premise with a wide-open world to explore, the power to create anything you can imagine, and (at last!) Maxwell’s backstory.

Wii U to Support 2 Tablets After All?

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.

Irrational Games’ head honcho Ken Levine is offering some hints and explanations as to why his company is taking its BioShock brand to Sony’s new PlayStation Vita — but not to Nintendo’s Wii U. And whenever Levine speaks, the industry listens.

When Will Sony & Microsoft Release New Consoles?
