Wi-Fi coverage gets super-sized in the United States
Remember when Nintendo said that thanks to its collaboration with communications firm AT&T, there would be 10,000 Wi-Fi hotspots available throughout the United States? Well, that number just got even higher. Through an extended agreement with AT&T, 3DS users will have access to nearly...
Tom ventures to Sega’s London HQ to play the game that is on the tip of everyone’s tongue.
To say that The Conduit is eagerly anticipated would be a serious understatement – this is potentially the title that could be the next best thing since sliced Goldeneye.
