If you are into war strategy games, this is a must try app. I've been playing it for six months now and with live real time translation, it's way cool to have people from all over the world on my alliance. The interaction is awesome.
It's worth going back and playing the original Wii Sports before you play Wii Sports Resort, in order to give the new game some context. Wii Sports came packed with the hardware in the United States, and did more to sell the system than any commercial ever could. It felt like Nintendo was bringing in a new era of gaming, complete with a brand-new way to interact with our games; the possibilities seemed nearly limitless, and we waited for the flood of games that would take advantage of the Wiimote technology.
Thanks to a chatty developer, we recently heard and relayed rumors that the next-generation PSP will have a sliding screen. Well, a second mystery developer, who's allegedly "working with the new hardware," has upped the ante: he or she claims Sony's next-gen portable gaming console will actually have a sliding touch screen along with the much-requested, dual-analog thumbsticks.
...................... I still dig my psp. It has a lot of great features if you think about it. Besides some awesome gaming time, wifi, pics, movies, music. It's an entertainment center really. 8-)
Nintendo has already sold 100 million DS and DS Lites.
Is there really much of a market out there for more of these handheld wonders? The new DSi, which went on sale Sunday for $170, is about to find out.
I watched videos on my Nintendo Wii today all about the DSi. The amazing thing is, all the videos show adults using the DSi.
With the continued domination of both the Wii and the Nintendo DS in pure sales numbers, Nintendo has more reason than anyone to give thanks this holiday season. But they won't be spending the day after Thanksgiving lazing around in a turkey coma.
Instead, the console manufacturer has announced that they will be releasing two special limited edition Nintendo DS bundles to coincide with Black Friday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
The holiday season is always an exciting time for gamers. This is the time of year when the best games are lining store shelves in mass quantities, the console manufacturers are putting together the best hardware deals of the year, and all the guns are ablaze in the glorious console war. This year in particular is special, though, as both the PlayStation 3 and Wii are two years old this month, and the Xbox 360 is about to undergo a substantial refresh.

All three of the consoles have changed quite a bit since their respective launches. More functionality is crammed into each one of these boxes than ever before—and at lower prices, to boot. So what exactly are you getting beyond the bullet points on the back of the box? Let's take a look at where the three consoles stand feature-wise this holiday.
Rumor had it the Nintendo DSi, a new, slimmer version of the DS Lite, would ship first in Japan in early summer of next year. But in a surprise move, Nintendo has said the recently announced handheld game system is ready to ship.
Going into this holiday season, it's clear that Nintendo will sell as many systems as it can get on store shelves, but the fight for second place is where the real action will be found. The good news for both Microsoft and Sony is that each enjoys a strong position, but each has quite distinct advantages.
Microsoft announced it is redesigning the interface for its Xbox Live service. The update called the "New Xbox Experience" will launch on November 19 in 26 countries and will be localized in 19 languages.
The newest addition to the Nintendo DS family, DSi, has clearer sound
quality and a surprisingly sharp image quality when in photo mode. That
and the fact that users can have much more fun with software on the DSi
may be enough reason for Nintendo to entice consumers to snap up its latest handheld game console.
