Reggie Speaks: “Games Drive The Install Base”

In an interview with Forbes, Reggie was ready when the tough question about the Wii U’s lack of power, compared to the PS4 and Xbox One, was discussed.  In fact, he pointed out two very successful, yet underpowered, consoles from the past that dominated the marker…the PS2 and the Wii.  Why were they successful?  Simply put, it was the games. “The processing power of the hardware really...

Nintendo won’t discuss next console until they sell 15 million more Wiis

Or so says Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime, in an interview with Kotaku. “Wii has many, many more units to sell,” Fils-Aime said, after revealing that lifetime Wii sales in the U.S. stand at 30 million. “After we’ve reached an installed base of 45 million here in the U.S., we can have a conversation about the next generation.” When asked if Nintendo needs to relea...

3DS vs. PSP, PS2 and GameCube

Most of the chatter we hear about the 3DS is the autostereoscopic 3D screens, but there’s also a huge advancement in it’s graphical capabilities. Although the important part of having good graphics is the talent of the artists that make them, I think this can provide a good idea of what can be achieved on the 3DS from a technical standpoint. It’s also worth noting that the Snake ...

Milestone: Wii two-year sales beat PS2 two-year sales

The Wii’s history-making run continues today, as the plucky white console’s two-year sales numbers purportedly beat the PlayStation 2’s two-year numbers this past December. “Nintendo’s life-to-date sell-through of the Wii is very close to life-to-date sell-through of the PS2 through year-end 2002, and we expect Wii sales to surpass PS2 sales in December,” wrote anal...

Holiday game theft, watch out for store clerks

Recently I went to Walmart with some friends and family to try and tie up any lose ends for the holiday season. Of course being a gamer I give the gift of games to my younger family members. However, when I bought said games and brought them home to wrap and put away until the holidays, I noticed that one of the games was opened and that the game wasn’t there. The seal was cracked in such a ...

Review: Spider-Man: Web of Shadows [Wii][DS]

Like Treyarch’s other webhead games, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is entirely free-roaming. The island of Manhattan is open for your web-slinging, wall-running pleasure, and it looks fantastic. The graphics are a huge step up from Spider-Man 3 for Wii, the city looks bigger, the animation is smoother, and the character models look more realistic. It also represents a change in how developers s...

PS2 title suggests Dead Rising Wii is a cop-out

We’ve heard ad nauseam Wii just isn’t powerful enough to replicate the massive zombie infestations of the original Dead Rising. Above is a video comparison of Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop and Hitman: Blood Money, a two-year-old game running on a PS2. It originally surfaced in August, but it seems many of us missed it. I won’t say a word. You can decide for yourself whether or ...

Fatal Frame IV Characters Revealed

Fatal Frame IV is apparently going to be released for the Nintendo Wii sometime in the near future. The Fatal Frame series is based around Japanese myths surrounding ghosts and tainted spirits. The game also has extensive roots in Japan mythology and settings as the games have always been in Japan, usually placing the main characters in abandoned mansions or town. It’s still a little surpris...

DS set to overtake PS2 in early 2008

The idea has been bandied about, dissected, contested and now it appears as though it will finally come to fruition: the DS, that plucky little multicolored portable, is set to overtake the PS2 in Japan sometime in early 2008. For some, this milestone was a given, especially in light of the portable’s insane sales numbers thoughout late 2006 and all of 2007. According to an article at GameIn...

Open letter: Dear Sierra, don’t screw up Ghostbusters

Infendo writer Derek has a chip on his shoulder this evening in this open letter to Sierra. The subject? Ghostbusters, what else? Dear Sierra:I had to slap myself last week. You think I’m lying, but the swollen red hand-print across my face says otherwise. I’m also having a hard time chewing with that side of my mouth now, so my food is only being half-processed before I swallow, which I’m s...

Rygar update: Argus, graphics and Wii controls

I both loved and hated the original Rygar. I played it on a friends’ NES a lot, and we usually ended up screaming at the TV because, as any gamer knows, cussing out a television actually affects gameplay and allows you to beat final bosses. It was also pretty enjoyable nevertheless. And now there’s a “new” Rygar coming to Wii. I use quotes because it’s actually the 20...

Nintendo and the rising continent

Malstrom is at it again. Today he’s delivered us a series of new (and lengthy!) articles about gaming, Nintendo and the future of the industry as a whole. I think with the outrageous success currently being enjoyed by the Wii and its software (you know, the software that ignoramuses say doesn’t exist yet) this is an especially timely delivery. On a personal note, the reason I enjoy the...
