@NauticalCrimes You know they could map the Gamepad controls to be like the Classic Controller. Then every CC supported game could be playable offscreen.
@Pahvi The IR could be replaced with the touchscreen.

Nintendo can do it, but obviously prefers if you buy the WiiU titles to have this interaction. (VC for example)

There should be part of the website dedicated to keeping this information in a nice table. Especially for us European's to know which VC games are in 50Hz and which are 60Hz.
Is there even an equivalent list like this kept anywhere up-to-date somewhere around the web?

NL... In the source he states that the main problem isn't the age ratings bureaucracy as your article suggests.

We'll see. I do want players in EU/NZ/AU to play our games, the ratings issues are less of a stopping block for me than inconsistent policies through distributors.

"inconsistent policies through distributors", whatever that means it must involve NoE and only hinders Nicalis for some reason.

Funny thing is that Pelikan13 is Greek. He wont be able to release his own game in his own country thanks to Nicalis.
And this kids is why regions sucks. Europe's ratings system should unify, but I guess it's a low issue and people in Brussels have other more important things to worry about.

How does Apple get away with rating all those apps?



PALgamer commented on TiVo And Google Maps Functionality For Wii U H...:

At least NA has TVii, can't say the same about the rest.

These services, like the News or Weather Wii ones, add functionality cheaply and gets people to turn on their consoles more often. The more they use it, there is bigger exposure to games through WaraWara, etc.



PALgamer commented on European 3DS Price to Drop by a Third, says Ni...:

Only 180 euros? The system is already available at 190-200 euros right now. A 1/3 reduction from 250 euros would mean 165 euros. A 1/3 from the prices available now to the lowest would be even lower, from 130-150 euros. So this is not a 1/3 reduction like in the States ($170 - 120 euros).

@James: You said this in the American counterpart of this news that, "UK getting a price drop to around £130/£150 so I've heard." Are you sure about that?



PALgamer commented on Just Why Is La-Mulana Taking So Long?:

It's USK that only lets Tivola release all those learning German titles on WW and DSiW. When the world has no other games to play, we are all forced to learn German. Danke!



PALgamer commented on Wii U is Technically 3D-Ready:

Nintendo's Wii U is about giving options. Give 3D an option. Give third parties option of adopting 3D. Give the users the option to buy 3D TVs.
