02/04/2014, The Nintendo Wii U is definitely not the hottest selling console at the moment. In fact Nintendo had recently slashed sales estimates of the Wii U by 70% and if you thought that it was prime for a price cut in order to generate sales, like what Nintendo did with the 3DS handheld console, you might recall that Nintendo’s President Satoru Iwata stated that they would not be doing that.

10/25/2013, All good things must come to an end, that is one of the cardinal rules of life. The Nintendo WIi, which was originally scoffed at by certain quarters for its “waggle controls”, managed to have quite a fair run in its lifetime to date. The thing is, the console has more or less reached the end of its lifespan, with the Land of the Rising Sun being the first region […]
10/23/2013, Now that Nintendo’s next-generation video game console, the Wii U, is available around the world, it’s understandable the company would be halting the production of its predecessor, the Wii. We learned just a few days ago NIntendo had discontinued the production of the Wii over in Japan, which probably had many fans of the console rushing to their consumer electronics retailer of choice to buy as many of the last-gen console […]
10/20/2013, Boy, how fast time flies. Just a few weeks after Nintendo announced that they would cease the manufacturing of the Nintendo Wii for Japan, the gaming company has listed the console as “discontinued” (after some translation work, of course) on its Japanese website. I guess this means that if you happen to be in Japan and would love to pick up a Nintendo Wii, either as a replacement for your […]
10/01/2013, It was reported earlier today that Nintendo had updated its Japan website to add a note revealing that the company is going to cease production of the Wii console in Japan soon. A spokesperson for Nintendo Europe has confirmed this, saying that the website was indeed updated back on August 29th to include a “small notice to state that Wii hardware production will stop in the near future.” The spokesperson further said […]
10/01/2013, Nintendo promised earlier this year they would roll out updates to its Wii U in the spring and summer to help improve the video game console in a number of important areas. The company released the Wii U’s spring update this past April, although many were wondering where the promised summer update was, considering we’ve entered the fall season in the northern hemisphere a few weeks ago. Nintendo might have been […]
09/19/2013, One of the most popular titles for the Nintendo Wii has got to be its Wii Sports titles as they allowed players to make full use of the system as they wave around their Wii remote to play a number of sports-related mini-games. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been a Wii Sports title for the Wii U console yet, but Nintendo is announcing they’re bringing all five Wii Sports activities through the […]
09/11/2013, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD will be setting sail onto the Wii U on October 4, leaving many longtime Nintendo and The Legend of Zelda fans counting down the days until the game is finally available for purchase.

09/06/2013, Nintendo announced a price cut for its Wii U Deluxe just a few weeks ago, and it looks like the company isn’t done slashing pricing as they’re now dropping the price for a number of its more popular Wii games just in time for the holiday season. Three Wii games in total will be receiving a price cut as Super Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros Wii. and Wii […]
08/28/2013, Nintendo Wii U owners were most likely aware The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD was set to be released this October, but an official release date was never announced by Nintendo. That all changes today as the publisher has just announced the title will be made available in North America on October 4.
08/27/2013, The Nintendo Wii U may not be getting much love from third-party developers these days, but they’re certainly trying their best to persuade their long-time fans to believe in their latest video game console. That’s why they put together a little video that highlights all of the Wii U exclusives that are both currently available and are planned to be released within 2013 and 2014.
