Miyamoto May Never Put His 3DS Down Again

Back in April, I had reported that Miyamoto was a tiny bit jealous that he did not create Angry Birds.  Unfortunately, we have not seen a true successor to the addicting game of Fowl VS Pork, but we will see Angry Birds on a Nintendo console soon. Rovio has announced that an Angry Birds Trilogy will be available on the Xbox 360, PS3, and The Nintendo 3DS.  The trilogy will include the original tit...

Is Your Wii/Kinect/PlayStation®Move Really Helping You stay Fit?

I have to admit, I bought my Wii for two reasons.  The first being for me and my kids to play the games and enjoy our time together.  The second was to experience the interactive gaming experience and possibly lose a little weight and become a bit more healthy. When I first hooked it up and turned it on I tried out Wii Sports.  It was amazing!  I tried all of the events and found that after boxing...

Microsoft at e3, how did they fare?

The Microsoft conference has come and gone and you know what? Their presser seemed very….Nintendo. The majority of titles at the Microsoft presser seemed to be geared toward the market Nintendo has worked so hard to capture the last couple of years. Also, there seemed to be a lack of any new IPs from Microsoft aside from some Kinect stuff. ?If I was a kid, a lot of the Kinect titles would be...

Angry Birds creator becoming kind of a dick

First off, I love Angry Birds! I check it for updates more actively than any of my other iOS apps, and I have both the original version and the candy-coated “holiday” versions—including V-Day, St. Pat’s Day, Xmas and Halloween. I have played them all to completion and think they represent some of the best the mobile platform has to offer (this is true even if we also acknow...

Yeah, that controls real well, buddy

Still pretty cool, though. (Thanks, Josh)

Microsoft tries to make Kinect look affordable

The “hardcore” casual motion control guys at Microsoft are getting cute with price charts.  In a damage control effort to deflate popular opinion that Kinect is a bit pricey, Microsoft has released a few interesting charts painting the accessory as the most affordable gateway to motion control.  How do they battle the reasonably priced motion control Wii? By assuming the balance boar...

Meanwhile, in Kyoto…

You know who’s not sweating bullets or worried about much of anything today? Everyone at Nintendo.

And You thought Playing the Wii made you look silly…

This is how you look playing the Kinect. Video credit @Rocco Botte

Kinection Error: Don’t Move! Sony and Microsoft fall flat at E3

Despite impressive tech demos at last year’s E3, Microsoft’s recently re-branded “Kinect” and Sony’s Playstation Move controller felt more dated than the “underpowered” Nintendo console they are trying to out-motion. What do we mean by dated? Obviously this has nothing to do with graphical capability or processing power – something on which both the Xbox 360 and Playsta...

Miyamoto checks out the Kinect

He doesn’t seem very impressed. Neither does translator Bill Trinen. A picture is worth a thousand hateful words. via Gizmodo

Natal renamed “Kinect,” to launch with “Kinect Sports”

Various sources from around the internet are reporting that Xbox’s much hyped project Natal has been officially renamed to Xbox Kinect.  Although this in itself is not specifically Nintendo news, it’s worth mentioning that Microsoft’s controller free revolution will be launching with a game currently known only as “Kinect Sports.” Classy Microsoft. More on Xbox Kinec...
