Years ago, I mastered the art of playing Nintendo 3DS—finding and holding my head in the perfect position to peer through the console's 3D parallax barrier display and drink in its stereoscopic worlds. I'm so proud of this skill that I even use it to inflate my ego: yes, I am the best at looking at screens.…
Remember trying to find that perfect 3D sweet-spot on your original Nintendo 3DS handheld? You won't have to do that anymore. The "New" Nintendo 3DS XL (yes, that's really the official name) goes on sale next month.
Last night was the night that Nintendo told investors—and the world—how they're going to meet the challenges they're facing.
In America, we're 12 days into our government shutdown, and apparently everyone is cool doing without frilly things like benefits to military survivors or food inspections, because assigning blame for this stupid temper tantrum is terribly uncivil. But we draw the line when it affects our right to bear Pokémon, right?!
Sony announced their dual-screened S2 tablet today. It's not the only twin-screen tablet, but considering recent ill-conceived efforts from the likes of Acer, Toshiba and Kyocera, we're a little skeptical. With the S2, Sony's basically cut a 10-inch screen in half and stuck a hinge in between. How much of a benefit…
Let's face it. The onboard battery for the 3DS stinks. It gets around 3 to 5 hours on a single charge, depending on the settings. Those numbers aren't anywhere near the DSi XL or DS Lite. Too bad there isn't… [Kotaku]
By simply pressing "Start" and "Select" while booting up a DS game, players can get the title running at a clearer resolution. Better resolution comes at a price, however: shrinkage. [Kotaku]
Following up the most successful game handheld in history is no easy task. That's exactly what Nintendo is doing starting today. The future begins now. [Kotaku] Kotaku at 02/26/2011 03:03:10
I mean, really, this Nintendo DS bluetooth keyboard accessory sort of undermines the entire concept of a portable console. Who's gonna lug this thing around with them? Like Kotaku says, just put the damn game out on the Wii.
Thanks to nose-diving DS sales, which fell from 11.7 million a year ago to 6.69 million this year, slowing Wii sales, down from 5.75 to 4.97 million over the last six months, and a strong yen, Nintendo's posted its first half-year loss in seven years. That's pretty crazy. [Kotaku]
Nintendo has announced they're preparing for a little price cutting in advance of the 3DS launch. Starting September 12th, you'll be able to pick up a DSi for $129 (down from $149), and an XL for $169 (formerly $189). [CrunchGear]
E3's biggest loser? It's Sony. They've been lagging behind for years overall, but to lose at hardware, their strongest suit? What a pity.
Odds are Nintendo is going to go THREE DEE for their DS today, allowing you to get all three of the dees in a portable package. You can watch their unveil live.
If you don't want to bang down ten notes for the full-fat Chinatown Wars iPhone app, this free "Lite" version is worth checking out. It provides a good taste of the Nintendo DS game, with the first three missions playable.
Very soon, that little flip-screened gaming console hidden in your draw or under your bed is going to break all kinds of crazy records. Currently, the PlayStation 2 is king of the best-selling console hill, but come October...
