Europe to receive Wii redesign as well

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 […]


Nintendo Wii gets blue Sega theme

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 […]

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword special edition will come with gold Wii remote

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.


Redesigned Nintendo Wii will be cheaper but won’t have GameCube support

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.


The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword arrives on Nintendo Wii this November 20th

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 […]


Nintendo Wii successor might just be known as Nintendo

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 […]


Is Wii Vitality Sensor dead or alive?

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 […]


Wii price slashed down to $169.99 everywhere

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 […]


Nintendo Wii rumored to get price cut?

The Nintendo Wii has been around for a fair number of years already, and to date it has experienced just one official price cut. Good news for extremely late adopters who still do not own a WIi – from May 15th onwards, word on the street has it that the Nintendo Wii will experience yet another price cut, seeing the sticker price tag touch a new low of $150. This […]


Dragon Quest X sticking to the aging Wii

With the 3DS is out in three major markets and slowly declining Wii sales, it would seem as if the next-generation (at least for Nintendo) is upon us. So where on Earth is Square Enix’s Dragon Quest X? Since its announcement in December 2008, we’ve barely heard anything about the monster slaying JRPG. If Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii is to be believed, the game is still in development for […]


Water-cooled Nintendo Wii – overkill or necessity?

They say that necessity is the mother of all invention, but we really do question whether that is the case with this Nintendo Wii mod. First of all, everyone knows that among the three consoles (Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3) in this generation, the Wii is the most underpowered graphically, so why is there the need for water cooling in the first plance? Apparently, you don’t really need a reason […]


Hacked SD Card Activity Monitor For Nintendo Wii

It’s nice to know that folks with some hardware skills are capable of modifying their hardware to solve those irritating little problems. A user out there wanted to know when the SD card in his Nintendo Wii was being used and as such he decided to hack in an indicator LED using a PICAXE 08M and added it next to the slot. Sounds like a simple but very useful little […]
