07/08/2013, Back in 2009, Nintendo announced the Vitality Sensor which would be one of the accessories for the Wii. However in 2011 the sensor was still nowhere to be seen and now thanks to a Nintendo’s president, Satoru Iwata, it looks like the sensor could be in limbo for the foreseeable future. During Nintendo’s investor Q&A session, Iwata was asked about the device and his response was that the product was […]

05/15/2013, While Nintendo is certainly banking their future on the Wii U console, especially with the announcement of other next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 4 and presumably Microsoft’s next-gen Xbox, the console has not exactly been a commercial success and has been met with mixed reviews. However with it being newer with brand new features and all, would it be a better console than the Nintendo Wii, its predecessor? While we […]

We now have more information as to what Nintendo is planning exactly according to an E3 invitation received by Ubergizmo. The invitation sent from Nintendo says it will give media […]
05/06/2013, Nintendo may soon be offering quite the strong lineup of games for its Nintendo 3DS in the coming months, but is doing quite the opposite with its Wii U as there are really no note-worthy titles coming out until closer to the holiday season. A new rumor may suggest the company is currently working on enticing smartphone app developers to create versions of their popular games for the Wii U, which […]
05/02/2013, If you are an avid gamer, you certainly do not need anyone to walk up to you to tell you the fundamental difference between the Nintendo Wii as well as the Nintendo Wii U, as following press releases, reviews and news would certainly leave you with more than enough information that the Nintendo Wii U is nothing like the older Nintendo Wii. Unfortunately, it seems that this is not the […]
04/25/2013, The last we heard of the Nintendo Wii U’s Miiverse was when the company announced its mobile features would be made available to smartphone and PC users “in a few weeks.” It looks like those few weeks are now behind us as Nintendo has officially launched Miiverse onto smartphones and PCs. This version of Miiverse isn’t a dedicated application, so smartphone users shouldn’t go looking in their respective app stores for an […]
04/25/2013, We think it’s safe to say considering how Nintendo’s Wii U has been performing lately, the world will be tuning into their E3 press conference this year in anticipation to hear what exactly they have planned to turn things around for the company. That was probably the plan for many gamers around the world, but it looks like they’ll have to look for their Nintendo information elsewhere as the company has […]
04/24/2013, The Nintendo Wii U may not have had the best quarter, but that hasn’t stopped Japan from making this already expensive video game console into an even more expensive karaoke machine.

The Festa has a monitor that […]
04/24/2013, Nintendo may have announced its launch lineup of the Wii U’s Virtual Console, (http://www.ubergizmo.com/2013/04/wii-u-virtual-console-launch-lineup-revealed/) but on the other side of the spectrum, they also announced how their console has been selling, and as you could expect, it isn’t good news. Nintendo announced its quarterly sales for the Wii U reached only 390,000 units since December, well after its holiday boost. In total, the Wii U has sold a total of […]
04/23/2013, As unfortunate as it was to hear Splinter Cell: Blacklist was delayed until August 20, we can certainly forgive Ubisoft for pushing back the game’s release date considering how awesome it’s turning out to be so far. Ubisoft confirmed earlier this month a Wii U version would also be made available, and this week, they released a new game trailer that highlights all of the unique gameplay mechanics you can expect in this […]
04/12/2013, Nintendo’s Wii U has was released this past November, although you wouldn’t know considering how bad its sales have been in recent months.
