10/13/2011, We do know that those of us living Stateside will be getting a redesigned Nintendo Wii in the form of the black Wii Holiday bundle, but what about our friends living across the pond? Not to fret – they too, will be on the receiving end of this bundle of joy, where the new Wii will be out when November 4th rolls around. That is just a fortnight after we […]
10/11/2011, I remember back in the days where Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Ghostbusters were all the rage – and this new fangled toy known as video games ruled living rooms, never mind that their graphics were positively awful in comparison to today’s realistic renderings. Well, Nintendo and Sega duked it out pretty hard, with Sega having the upper hand in terms of advertisements many a time, but Nintendo’s mainstay […]

08/30/2011, Are you a huge Zelda fan? If you are, you’re probably eagerly awaiting the release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which is expected to see a release this 20th of November.
08/19/2011, A couple of days back we reported that Nintendo had announced a new look for their Wii gaming console. At the time of writing it was unclear as to whether Nintendo would keep the price similar to the current version of the Wii, or if it would see a price drop.
08/17/2011, Don’t you find it rather strange for Nintendo to roll out a new Legend of Zelda game at the end of a console’s lifecycle instead of doing it right at the beginning and somewhere in the middle, when the momentum is still there? No idea on whether the Legend of Zelda franchise name alone has enough power left these days to result in stupendous game sales. What we do know […]
08/17/2011, A couple of days ago we reported that the Xbox would be getting a matte finish as opposed to the glossy finish that it usually comes with. Well it looks like Nintendo will be following suit by releasing a new look for their Wii in time for the Christmas season.
06/09/2011, Check out the video in the extended post to see the Jazari in action, where the creator relied on a Wiimote as well as a custom Arduino controller that was specially built from arcade buttons, relying on a bunch of gestural sensors and springbok horns that will direct the percussion machines and vocal processing. It seems that gadget fans will definitely fall in love with the horn claw controller if […]
06/06/2011, While Apple’s WWDC 2011 keynote will most probably take up most of the attention of journalists everywhere, that does not mean the whole world would stop for Cupertino – no sir, other companies, too, have their own agenda that they would like to push their products out to the market. Nintendo is not going to let something called WWDC be a wet blanket, as they promised that their next generation […]
06/03/2011, THQ executives must have taken a good look at how the Nintendo Wii actually revolutionized gaming in the living room – through the use of motion sensitive controls that eventually paved the way to additional innovations such as the Kinect and to a lesser extent, the PSMove. Well, what do you think is the next logical step when it comes to video game evolution? THQ leans more towards the tablet […]
04/26/2011, First unveiled over three years ago at E3 2009, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said that the next big leap for the Wii Remote would be the Wii Vitality Sensor. It was basically a finger sensor that could read heart beats and then translate those pulses into statistical information fed to a game. Everybody assumed that Nintendo would release some kind of extended version of Wii Fit with the dongle, but […]
04/17/2011, This is what we call the calm before the storm. The calm, being the Wii‘s new MSRP of $169.99. The storm, being the highly-anticipated Wii HD/2 console that will debut at E3 in June. Nintendo hasn’t officially acknowledged an official price cut (rumored to be slashed to $150), but retails across the U.S. have already made the move, dropping the Wii from $199.99 by $30. The last price cut was […]
04/15/2011, The news never stops when it comes to the Nintendo Wii’s successor. At Ubergizmo, we’re all drooling over what Nintendo has in store, but for now we’ll just have to settle for the bits of scrap news that’s trickling in. French site 01net is reporting that the controller on Nintendo’s next console will have a 6-inch touchscreen, with the standard L/R triggers and D-pad, and “other buttons” flanking it on […]
