NES PC

If you’re a hardware nut, Nintendo Fan, and have lots of extra time on your hands, knock yourself out. Here’s the how-to instructions if you’ve got the moxey! (Source: 4 Color Rebellion)

Revolution: No HD

Apparently, Ninny has decided not to include HD with Revolution. While this isn’t a huge shock, I’m left wondering. Do you think it’s a big deal? I don’t think it’s mission critical, but it would have been a nice feature. Nintendo is claiming that adding HD will add to developer and consumers cost. That may be the case but I wonder if that’s more PR spin than ac...

DS Web Browsing?

This would be cool but it’s sounding more and more like a fake. Who knows though, maybe web browsing on the DS could be a reality in the near future… (Source: www.spreadfirefox.com)

DS Outsells Sony PSP and PS2 Combined!

According to N-Gage Gaming of all places, not only is the DS outselling the PSP in Japan, but the PSP and PS2 combined. I guess it did better than both systems over the duration of one week. Impressive stuff, but it will be interesting to find out US figures. As we all know, American and Japanese gaming are different beasts altogether. How do you think it’s doing here in the states?

Micro Skins + Nice New Pic

Behold, the goodness that is… more micro pics. While I think the GameBoy micro was an excellent business move by Nintendo to steal thunder from the PSP at E3, I think I’ll stick with my trusty SP. Are any of you going to buy one come this November? If so, why? (Tiny hardware deserve tiny pics)

The Best Controller…Ever

I believe the GameCube controller to be the most ergonomic controller ever. And because of that, combined with its excellent button placement, I deem it the best! Every time I pick one up, it just feels like I’m better prepared for the upcoming gaming experience. What do you think? Is it the best?

DS Lovin’

Starting June 12, the DS will ship with Mario 64 DS. Might be a good time to pick this badboy up in preparation for Nintendogs. (Source: 4 color rebellion)

Not FREE? Boo.

Gamedaily is reporting that the Nintendo classics will not be FREE. I guess you can strike my post from last Friday as wishful thinking based off hearsay. (Sorry, blogger mistake) Joystiq has been saying though that maybe they will somehow incorporate free promotional downloads. I.E. Buy a game, get 3 FREE classic downloads. Has anyone heard anything else?

Bad Publicity

This can’t be good publicity for the PSP. It just goes to show the love people have for Nintendo games, even for the haters. Wired is reporting in an article released today about easy hacks for the PSP that allow users to play retro Nintendo games. (See images below) With all the good hardware found in the PSP, people still just want great games. Even if they are technologically challenged.

221 downloadable games

Shizzle is reporting via some Japanese magazine on 221 games that will be ready for download on the Revolution. No word as to if these are considered the FREE classics that Nintendo’s VP spoke of last week. See the list!

FREE trials galore!

I’m a big advocate for online rentals of games and DVD’s. I’m an even bigger advocate of FREE trials. Check out EZ comparison for all the online game rental companies that include 5 Free trials. That’s well over 10 free game rentals being that most of them let you rent 2 at a time. Be sure to check out the best Nintendo games that you might have missed.

Apple to use Intel not PowerPC chips

What does that have to do with Nintendo you may ask? A lot. Nintendo’s last and next generation consoles both use the IBM PowerPC processing chip. Granted, this news won’t cause an uproar in the gaming processor industry, but Apple is reporting that a main reason for the switch is the chip’s inability to keep up with Intel and AMD chips. Again, gaming is about gaming not technolo...
