Nintendo Wii U

8 Jun

E3 has certainly been a cracker so far but we already knew that Nintendo would be detailing their new console and here it is.  The Nintendo Wii U has one massive attraction, that controller, see the video below;

So what do we know aside from the video.  The new Wii U controller features a 6.2-inch touchscreen, microphone, accelerometers, gyroscope, thumbpads, D-pad and shoulder buttons.

Details over the console itself are light and the design shown in pictures so far may actually be a prototype.  All the focus today was really on the controller and you can tell why when you watch the above video.

Let us know your thoughts.

Playstation 4?

23 May

Uncovered these pretty cool snaps of a concept for the Playstation 4 which you may like if you have not already seen them.

The anniversaries of the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 are coming up again and they are now getting pretty old in gaming standards despite the ultra successful face lifts of the PS3 Slim and the slicker newer version of the Xbox 360 with upped spec including built in Wi-Fi.  But as Nintendo are now moving forwards with the Wii 2 (Project Cafe) to be unveiled next month, are we soon going to see a new Sony PS4 and Microsoft Xbox.

Well these concept pictures for a PS4 will wet your appetite as we wait to see.

Let me know what you think in the comments section below.

Will the new Nintendo Wii HD (Project Cafe) get Wii sales back on track?

18 May

There are varying views about the Wii at the moment. Sales have declined against Xbox 360 and Playstation but and many people now looking at the Wii see an occasional game system or party game system.

I have a lot of time for the Wii, I never fail to enjoy playing games on the Wii but it is lacking in HD and good sound quality.

So Project Cafe was outed a few weeks ago and word is that the new Wii HD will break cover at Junes E3 event.

But with Kinect and Sony Play now firmly set in peoples living rooms and bedrooms, will the Wii HD bring what it needs to compete.

Time will tell and the video (albeit nobody seems sure if it is genuine) that has broken on You Tube this morning brings some interesting thoughts.

But all I would say at this stage is that if you love the Wii, you probably have pedigree behind you and enjoyed the N64 and the SNES behind that. Nintendo don’t do bad game systems and while the Xbox and Playstation are going to b difficult to beat as an all round entertainment experience (ones which are constantly being developed and expanded), the Wii HD will be great for Gaming. And it’s here that the system will need to keep to it’s roots and where likely it will be a massive hit.
