  • Talking Point What's in a Console Colour?

    Hardware colour is crucial in getting your message across. What will Café don?

    In today’s gadget-obsessed world, design is key. How a new piece of tech looks and feels communicates wonders about what type of product it is and the experiences it hopes to bring to the table. Form is important, but colour makes the most immediate impression:...

    Start bookmarking now

    Yesterday we brought you Nintendo's E3 2011 conference details, but the real question on everyone's lips — other than "why are British and American Smarties so different? — was "will Nintendo be streaming the event live?" Well the good news is that you'll be able to get that new console smell beamed right to...

    No second analogue stick, no problem

    While we currently don't have a lot of concrete information on Nintendo's upcoming Super Mario 3D, we are beginning to see bits and pieces of info trickling out as we near this year's E3 show in Los Angeles. In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Miyamoto explained how the game's camera system would be...

    Nintendo Japan has indeed confirmed the existence of its new game console, set for release in 2012 according to a new press release from Nintendo.

  • News E3 Promises Over 30 Nintendo Titles

    Surprises not included

    The run-up to E3 is almost as exciting as the event itself, with half the fun in predicting exactly what Nintendo will show. Not every company is as secretive however, as a recently published list reveals the show will play host to at least fifteen DS games and twenty titles for Wii. That may not seem like a huge amount, but bear in mind this list doesn't include SEGA,..

  • News Reggie: We’ll Be Better at E3 This Year

    Nintendo hoping to make amends for 2008's dire performance

    E3 2008 wasn’t a particularly good one for Nintendo. Sure, the company was riding high in the sales charts but the limp presentation (which was essentially geared towards the casual gamer) did little to appease dedicated fans – and after all, they would have been the ones watching. You...

  • News Dunaway: No E3 Snowboarding This Time

    NOA exec says it will be ‘all about the games’

    Last year’s Nintendo E3 press conference was mildly painful to experience. Cammie Dunaway, NOA’s executive VP of sales and marketing, made a somewhat misguided attempt to ‘sell’ the Balance Board, and ended up looking a bit silly. Dunaway is back for this year’s event, but you’ll be glad to know she will resist the urge to replicate the..

  • E3 2008 More Mega Man 9 Hands-On Impressions

  • E3 2008 Mega Man 9 First Impressions

    Sadly the Corbmiester wasn't able to make it to E3 this year on our behalf. However all is not lost because GoNintendo and Wii Fanboy did make it to E3 and have posted their thoughts on Mega Man 9 before the big boys like IGN give us their verdict soon no doubt.

    Let’s check out what they had to say: GoNintendo I am was very pleased to see that the game is absolutely brutal. I don’t think that..

  • E3 2008 Miyamoto Discusses Limited Storage Space On Wii

    We haven’t exactly been bombarded with WiiWare news at E3 2008 yet. Well in fact, no news to speak of yet! So you can forgive us for raising the sticky wicket of the lack of a storage solution on the Wii yet again.

    Hopefully there will be a breakthrough on the horizon soon. IGN caught up with Miyamoto about this ever increasing problem and here’s what he had to say: There isn't anything that..
