Someone In Nintendo Thought The Wii U Would Sell 100 Million Units

It was only announced earlier this year that the PlayStation 4, which is comfortably beating the snot out of Microsoft and Nintendo in the current generation of consoles, had sold more than 40 million.

Minecraft's Battle Mini Game Is Worth A Shot

The newly-launched Minecraft Battle mini game (free on consoles) is Mojang’s latest attempt to recapture some of the massive market that plays on independent servers on third-party maps. The Battle mini game is pretty simple — it’s a big free-for-all with up to eight players, where you try to kill, hide, and survive, hoping to be the last player standing.


Tokyo Mirage Sessions Impressions: So Far, So Good

Another giant JRPG is out for the Wii U today. Is Atlus and Nintendo’s mash-up of Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem any good? We’ve got positive impressions of the Japanese version of the game and video of the first hour of the Western version to help you decide.


The Makers Of Zelda On Why Their Games Are Usually Late

“First of all, it would be great if I didn’t have to put a release date out at all,” Nintendo’s longtime chief game designer Shigeru Miyamoto recently told me when I asked him about the tendency for Zelda games to be late. “But I have to.” We both laughed.
