  3. Review: Mario Kart 8 Turns the Kart-Racing World Upside Down

    Review

    Mario Kart is the king of the kart racer. My problem is, it’s held that throne for a long, long time, and kings can get lazy. Between generations, the series does little to distinguish one entry from another. The gimmicks may change, but you’re still hugging the turns and avoiding the nefarious, homing blue shells and dozens of banana peels littering the Bowser’s Castles and Rainbow Roads as Mario, Luigi, and the gang. The pressure is never on to innovate because when other kart-racing games do emerge, they usually try to mimic Mario Kart and fail (with one modern exception: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed—trust me).

  4. Nintendo Pulling the Plug on Wii and DS Online Multiplayer, Here’s What That Means for You

    Your poor Wii is going to be so lonely.

    Nintendo is moving forward into the future, everyone, and that means systematically killing off the Wii and DS to get players to move from the older systems to the newer ones.

    On their Japanese Site, Nintendo has announced that they've officially stopped production of new Wiis.

  7. Nintendo Shutters Some Wii Online Services, Would Really Like You to Buy a Wii U

    Nintendo sure would love it if you went out and bought a Wii U, their shiny console which is still warm from the factory. Particularly because it's a product they're still supporting. It's actually best if you don't even look at the older ones. They don't really count anymore.

  8. Nintendo Cuts Wii U Sales Projections by 1.5 Million Units

    The Wii U sold 3.06 million units between its November launch and the end of the 2012. Those numbers are stronger than we would have guessed considering how underwhelmed we were with the system, but it looks like Nintendo is even more disappointed by the Wii U than we were. Because of the slower-than-expected performance, Nintendo is cutting their sales projections through March by 1.5 million units. Bummer.

  9. China Could Lift Its 13-Year Game Console Ban

    Good news for Chinese gamers! China is thinking about lifting its ban on game consoles. The news is just speculation right now, and it's based on the Playstation 3 receiving a quality certification from the Chinese government, but even that speculation has been enough to bump up stock prices for Sony and Nintendo, both of which are champing at the bit to enter the Chinese market. Obviously, a lifting of the ban would help those companies greatly. It might also destroy the mental and physical development of Chinese children, since that's what the ban was trying to protect.

There are reports of an internal release schedule of an undisclosed "major retail source" that says a Wii Mini console is coming December 7th. With the release of their new system, why would Nintendo look back on the original Wii for a redesign?
