  • News Nintendo's NES Predecessor, Unveiled at CES 31 Years Ago, Was Rather Different From the Iconic Home Console

    The Advance Video System was a more literal family computer

    This week has brought us the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, which has been particularly light on gaming goods. It's an opportunity for companies big and small to show off their technology, ranging from expensive high-end gear to slightly quirky or silly 'innovations'. For...

  • News Wii U Panorama View Demo is Awesome

    How do they do that?

    We all saw the Shield Pose, Chase Mii, Battle Mii and Zelda HD Experience Wii U demos from E3, but one we didn't get to see was Panorama View, recently shown off at CES. The 360º video experience shown below is unlike anything Nintendo showed off before. Using the Wii U controller you can look around the space as you like, even...

  • News Reggie: Wii U Information Could Hit Before E3

    Keep 'em peeled

    Wii U will boast a full range of entertainment says Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, but must we really wait until Nintendo's E3 press conference on 5th June at 9am Pacific time to hear more? Perhaps not. Fils-Aime told Spike TV that there'll be new details spread over the course of 2012: We will be sharing...

  • News Reggie: Wii U to Boast a "Full Range of Entertainment"

    The big man speaks

    Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime's CES "interview" with Spike TV didn't give anything major away — games and dates remain a mystery — but he did speak in very broad terms about Nintendo's vision for its upcoming console. Talking about the plan to continue broadening the Wii install base, Fils-Aime...

  • News Wii U Hands-On for Media Only at CES 2012

    Bubble burst

    Yesterday's rumour that Nintendo would show off Wii U at CES in January has turned exactly as expected: it just ain't so. 1UP has a statement from Nintendo that confirms the publisher's showing is behind closed doors, with nothing new to reveal over and above what we learnt at E3: Nintendo of America, working with the 2012...

  • Rumour Nintendo to Show Off Wii U at CES in January

    Getting out there early

    The Wii U hasn't been seen since E3 in June, but according to CNET it's about to get a run-out at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. CNET claims Nintendo is taking the Wii U to CES in January, though the CES website doesn't list Nintendo as an exhibitor. Last year Nintendo held meetings at CES but didn't have any public presence, and we'd be surprised if Nintendo..

  • News Don't Expect Announcements From Nintendo at CES 2011

    What exactly is the purpose of attending, then?

    First, there was the exciting news that Nintendo would be attending the Consumer Electronics Show for the first time in 16 years. Then, there was the disappointing mix-up that mistakenly listed Nintendo as an exhibitor with a public display. Now, hopes of announcements ― even behind closed doors ―...

  • News Nintendo's CES Presence is All Behind Closed Doors

    Sorry, general public!

    The recent news that Nintendo would return to CES after a 16-year hiatus caused many to jump for joy, but sadly the truth isn't quite so exciting, with the Consumer Electronics Association announcing the company will not have a public booth at the show. It seems Nintendo will be utilising meeting rooms at the Las Vegas conference but won't have any public presence, putting a..

  • News After 16 Years, Nintendo Returns to CES

    Might it bring 3DS release info?

    The annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is the place to be if you're looking to see the bleeding edge of gadgets and gizmos. From what would become Kinect to a plethora of hyper-thin televisions, if you've got it you flaunt it. With the upcoming 3DS handheld, Nintendo's got it, and for the first time in 16...

  • News First Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Details

    An elegant videogame from a more civilized age

    The first gameplay details of Lucasarts’ forthcoming Star Wars title The Force Unleashed have started to trickle in after the 2008 CES, and we have to admit it’s sounding pretty bloomin’ special. Opposable Thumbs had this to report: "Every time you hit that face button, we want you to feel that power," I'm told as I watch one of the..

  • News Nyko Wireless Nunchuck

    The stuff dreams are made of, surely it won't be long before Nintendo 'copy' this idea and get them to us officially?

    The device, which attaches to the Wii Remote via a small wireless dongle for complete cordless freedom, will be available in the first quarter of 2008 for a suggested price of $29.99. Schweet, nice one Nyko. The Wireless Nunchuck has actually been voted "Best of CES 2008"..
