Hey everyone, DarkWish here. I know I vanished from WiiNintendo for a long time, but I’ve been very busy. I’ll be back in full force once the Summer ends, but every now and then I can’t resist writing about something and will make some time to do so. Wii MotionPlus is one such topic. At Nintendo’s E3 conference last year, they unveiled Wii MotionPlus and the stage was set for a whole new level of immersion in video games.
Wii brought motion controls to the table and created a whole new way to play games. The problem is though that the motion control in most Wii games can easily be mapped to buttons or the control stick. It’s essentially [...]
Despite there sales going down in japan and now in the states Mr.Iwata still says a price cut won’t happen.
Wii sales have been falling sharply over the last several months, though, leading the CEO of Gamestop [GME 24.95 -0.05 (-0.2%) ] and other industry insiders to express interest in a price cut by Nintendo.
Iwata, though, says that’s not likely to happen soon.
“Right now, we have no plans at all about a price cut,” he says. “We are going to start launching the stronger software in the later half of the year — and we are confident [we will] regain the momentum.
While the camera-based motion-sensing tech shown by Sony and Microsoft during E3 definitely impressed a lot of gamers, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata had more of a “been there, done that” attitude.
Speaking to the Financial Times, Iwata said that they’ve actually already made experimental games controlled by camera-based sensors. That tech was eventually rejected, however, since they got better results out of the accelerometer-based tech now used in the Wiimote.
Iwata also seemed to welcome the competition, saying that he was happy that motion controls are starting to become an industry standard. “Companies whose people said that [...]
The Beatles: Rock Band will jump right into some of their fans favorite tracks without having to go through the story mode, and the game lets you do just that. From the start of the game, each of the 45 songs can be played instantly from the quickplay menu without having to unlock anything. Though this is pretty cool, fans would be missing out on “reliving” the career of The Beatles, which in the game will showcase some of their most memorable performances, such as their debut in the states on the Ed Sullivan Show and their fanatical crowd-filled concert at Shea Stadium in 1965.
Harmonix also put a great deal of effort into the video sequences that play [...]
Famitsu has an ad for what appears to be a new Tingle game for the DS. It’s assumed that this is a sequel to his 2007 RPG, Freshly-Picked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland, which was only released in Japan and Europe.
Anyone care to speculate?
More Tingle info, (a lot more):
Tingle, known as Tincle in Japan, is a fictional video game character of The Legend of Zelda series, first appearing in Majora’s Mask in 2000. Since then, he has appeared in each installment of the series up through The Minish Cap, except for Oracle of Seasons and Four Swords. Since then, he has not made in-person appearances in the main The Legend of Zelda series, due [...]
91 1UP With the addition of MotionPlus, Woods 10 on the Wii is a fantastic golfing videogame, besting its console counterparts because of its control options, extra courses, party game modes, and Frolf. Not to mention, it’s casual friendly for anyone to play, but with enough difficulty options for the hardcore to stay interested. It’s almost hard to imagine it getting better than this for the foreseeable future.
90 Nintendo Power Last year’s version was phenomenal, but the option to use the Wii MotionPlus accessory makes Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 the most authentic sports video game I’ve every played. [July 2009, p.90]
