    Amazon Launches Instant Video For Nintendo Wii

    If you own a Wii, you were probably a little bummed out to hear that Amazon would be serving up Instant Video to the Wii U and not to your older console. But fret no longer, as Amazon has just announced that its library of streaming video content is now available to Wii owners. Amazon’s Instant Video library is home to over 145,000 titles, and if you’re a Prime member you… Read More

    Nintendo’s Wii Mini Tipped By Best Buy Canada For December 7 Release

    Sony’s PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft Xbox 360 have both seen physical hardware design changes in their many years on the market, but the Wii has remained mostly the same Wii since its launch, with a minor update last year that made it slightly smaller. Now that Nintendo has released the Wii U, however, it looks like a bigger change is on the way for its older console, called the Wii Mini. Read More

  • Nintendo: 34 Million Wii Consoles Sold In The U.S. To Date

    Nintendo this morning announced that its DS family of portable video game systems has sold more than 47 million in the United States since the original model launched in November 2004. The company also said that, according to its internal sales figures, the Wii system has gone over the counter more than 34 million times in the United States alone.

  • Looks like Call of Duty 4 will be on the Nintendo Wii this year

    Help me parse the following sentence: “The record-setting and award-winning Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is coming to Nintendo. Activision Publishing, Inc. will release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on Wii on November 10 in conjunction with the launch of Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2.” Does that mean Call of Duty 4 is coming to the Wii, or some other Call of Duty game?

  • WTF: GameStop selling Nintendo Wii bundles with rubber ducks, water guns

    This has to be a viral campaign of some sort, but seeing as though we’re on the cusp of a three-day weekend I’ll bite. GameStop is selling three unusual Nintendo Wii bundles that, I don’t know, belie all logic. There’s the “Take a Bath With a Buddy” bundle, the “Pirate Tattoo” bundle, and the “Summer Fun” bundle. Yeah. Read More

  • Hands-on: Energizer Induction Charging System for the Wii

    Induction charging equals magic. OK, not really, but if you were to show such a thing to a caveman he’d probably keel over and die. Actually, he/she/it would probably freak out and club someone, which is the exact opposite of what Brendan Fraser did in Encino Man. Sorry, I’m delirious from malnourishment. Anyway, I’ve had a week with Energizer’s Induction Charging… Read More

  • What could have been: Nintendo Wii Remote

    To be quite honest, I’m surprised that it’s taken so long for someone to dig up the old patents for the Nintendo Wii Remote. Not that I’m the type to have gone digging for it, but the Wii has been out since ’06. Well, kudos to Siliconera for doing all the hard work on this one. Other patent images were found for the Classic Controller and Nunchuck, but the Wiimote seemed… Read More

  • Tiger Woods 10 will be bundled with Wii MotionPlus

    What’s the best way to encourage the adoption of strange video game accessory? Right, bundle it with a popular video game, like Nintendo did with the Rumble Pak and Star Fox 64 nearly 12 years ago. (God, 12 years!) Now EA is helping to ensure that the Wii MotionPlus isn’t a huge bust by shipping it with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10. The game comes out this summer, but no North… Read More
