Video: Rayman Legends PS3 and Wii U comparison

YouTube poster NiNTENDOMiNATI0N has posted a video comparing the visuals to the PS3 and Wii U versions of Rayman Legends, which is due for multiplatform release in North America on September 3rd. The differences appear to be slim according the video, but the jury is still out of whether the once Wii U-exclusive GamePad features will make the transition to the PS3 or Xbox 360. Rayman Legends was fi...

It’s official: the Nintendo 3DS has surpassed overal PS3 sales in Japan

How far the Nintendo 3DS has come since it’s abysmal launch in early 2011. As of yesterday, the Nintendo 3DS has outsold the lifetime sales of the Playstation 3 in Japan, which released in November 2006. The 3DS total Japanese sales numbers equal to 8,728,515 units compared to the PS3’s total of 8,593,899 units. At this rate, the 3DS would be on pace to outsell the original Nintendo DS...

The potential cost of a trip through Skylanders

Skylanders is one of the most controversial products ever released to the gaming world, linking software and electronic figurines into a unique and potentially costly experience. Its main hook — physical toys that actually “level up” — is instantly appealing, but if the game itself had turned out to be garbage, it would have sunk into oblivion. Much to the surprise of the g...

Sonic 4: Episode II Boasts New, Bonus Content…but Leaves Nintendo Out to Dry?

The newest trailer for Sonic’s latest episodic release revealed this potentially disappointing news to the general public. Sonic 4: Episode I was, in my opinion, one of Sonic’s finest titles to date. Sure the physics were a bit…wonky, to be honest, but the game did everything else right – including holding a spot on the Wii Shop Channel, giving everyone a chance to play the...

Nintentunes: the kind of not really Nintendo edition

I used to be a fanboy, but there are too many games to enjoy that my perspective has since changed. Nintendo will always be my favorite video game company because of their ability to bring a product to market that is above all else a fun experience, but even still, as a gamer I want to experience as many of those fun moments as possible, even if it isn’t on a Nintendo console. With that said...

What if Nintendo Rebranded Themselves as…Nintendo?

Nintendo has always been one of the best systems around, that is a given.  It has stood the test of time and weathered the passing of  great systems such as Sega, Neo Geo, Turbo Graphix 16, Atari, and Watara Supervision. However, over the past few years it seems to have been lost in the shadow of the XBOX 360 and Playstation 3.  It seemed for a while that Nintendo might not be able to keep up with...

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...

Exclusive: In an Xbox Live world, Nintendo defends online Wii service

Nintendo’s online service is better than most hardened gamers give it credit for. At least that’s what company spokesman Kit Ellis told Infendo in an interview last week. When asked how the popularity of Xbox Live and PSN have encouraged Nintendo to rethink their online strategy in planning their next console, Ellis turned the conversation back to the present. “The Wii is here no...

What if… Mega Man Universe was this?

This fan made game based on the Mega Man universe has surfaced on the net. It’s a pretty interesting example of what we believe Mega Man Universe might be so I thought I’d share it with the rest of you. Also, Ryu would be the the hardest boss in Mega Man history if this was real.

Infendo Radio 191 gets International

Netflix is finally heading up to the great white north – Canada.  What does this mean for Wii owners?  Will console streaming be available internationally?

Studio Ghibli is making a DS game

Many are familiar with Studio Ghibli Academy Award-winning Spirted Away, and other inspiring works such as Kiki’s Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Howls Moving Castle, and so forth. The studio has now begun work on a game for the DS and PS3. Ninokuni stars a child character named Oliver, illustrated in the dreamy, quasi-historical style of Ghibli animation films. The ...
