    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

    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. Of those 34 million, roughly 21 million… Read More

  • 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

  • Video: Nintendo Wii System Menu 4.0

  • Rumor: Nintendo working on USB hard drive for the Wii

    Among the many Wii rumors today, QJ was tipped off that Nintendo is working on a “double USB hard drive” for the Wii. Since, you know, storage on the Wii stinks at the moment and only supports 2GB SD cards. Read More

  • What year is this? Nintendo to finally sell 2GB SD cards for the Wii

    The storage gods have smiled upon us, friends! Starting this March, Nintendo will sell a 2GB SD card for the Nintendo Wii. Yes, you could have purchased such a card, or bigger, from, say, every other company on Earth, but this one has the official Nintendo Seal of Quality. (Remember that?) As always, Japan gets first dibs. Read More

  • Everlast's Wii boxing gloves have innovative ‘strap’ for ‘Wii remote’

    Everlast is cashing in on the Wii money train with a pair of $30 boxing gloves. The gloves have straps for the Wii remote. All you do is put your remote in there and punch away. If you already own a pair of boxing gloves—who doesn’t?—you can save yourself some money by whipping out the duct tape because there’s nothing here to make these gloves any different than… Read More

  • Should we expect Wii sales to decrease any time soon?

    This month’s NPD numbers don’t officially come out until Thursday, but a single note written by Lazard Capital’s Colin Sebastian has prompted all sorts of knee-jerk reactions. Lazard says it’s possible that the Wii could see a decline in sales for the month of July. Now, that’s not necessarily because demand has gone down, but could merely be a function of… Read More

  • Games for the blind or visually impaired, designed on Nintendo’s Wii

    Gamers with impaired vision usually had a hard time finding games they could play with their friends, who had no vision problems. The researchers at MIT’s (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Gambit Game Lab have been working with the Wii to create a game that will fill this need. They unveiled the fruits of their labor on Tuesday, a game called AudiOdyssey. The game is all about… Read More

  • Datel's Freeloader now out for Wii: Region-free gaming ahoy

    [photopress:wfl.jpg,full,right] Datel has released Freeloader for the Nintendo Wii (which, incidentally, is a lot more fun when you’ve got a nice buzz going, as I found out last night). The unlicensed disc lets you play Wii games from any region on your console. So, if you’re living in beautiful Leeds and want to play, I don’t know, some U.S. game, now you can. It also… Read More

  • Frequency from Nintendo Wii attracts cockroaches?

    This is a new one. Apparently the Nintendo Wii gives off a frequency that attracts cockroaches. This information comes from Japanese web site Barks and has been reported by The Register. Is it true? I don’t know. I can’t read Japanese and I know nothing about insects, including whether or not cockroaches are actually insects. Can any entomologists out there lend any credence to… Read More

  • With Wii shortage, Nintendo risks alienating potential customers

    How long until the shortage of the Wii starts to negatively affect Nintendo? That’s the idea of this one Times piece, which does the usual interviewing people who want a Wii but just can’t find one. Grown adults, snot-nosed kids, you know the drill—the Wii crosses demographic lines unlike any other video game console (or toy, for that matter) before it. Too bad no one can… Read More
