Written on September 13, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

During its pre-Tokyo Game Show presser this afternoon, Nintendo unveiled the arrival of its newest bizarre circle pad attachment for 3DS.

Aside from its upcoming Misty Pink 3DS, Nintendo also unveiled another interesting announcement during its pre-Tokyo Game Show conference this afternoon in Japan. The Big N’s very own Satoru Iwata discloses their plans of releasing the new 3DS’ bizarre circle pad attachment (also known as 3DS slide pad expansion), which is expected to hit the store shelves of Japan starting December 10 with a price tag of ¥1500 or $19.50.

Nintendo as well revealed some of the titles that will be added on the said attachment, including the Monster Hunter Tri G — which will also be available on Dec. 10. Aside from Monster Hunter, the Biohazard Revelations (Resident Evil: Revelations) will also be present, along with Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, Ace Combat 3D: Cross Rumble, Dynasty Warriors VS, and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.

Unfortunately, the 3DS slide pad expansion will require one AAA battery for use, which means that the pad won’t be carrying the battery power of the 3DS device it’s attached to.

Nintendo 3DS Gets Second Highest Sales Record

Written on September 06, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Japanese 3DS sales strike 384,000 units last month; doubles the device's July total.

The 3DS price drop last month has indeed worked out favorably for the Nintendo company. As revealed by Enterbrain, there are over 384,000 handheld units that were sold in Japan last August — which is 2.6 times the amount of devices being sold in July.

This is considered to be the second best-performing month for the Nintendo 3DS. Last March, when the handheld was first launched, the company was able to market more than 430,000 units.

In August 11, the 3DS faced a price cut-off of ¥10,000 to ¥15,000. The price drop was reported several weeks earlier, which results to an expected sales decrease. After the drop, the units were then reported to have the second highest sales record since its launching (February 26 launch not included).

Stay tuned to AllWeLike for news regarding 3DS sales in North America.

Runescape on Game Consoles, in the Horizon?

Written on August 30, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Jagex CEO, Mark Gerhard, believes that free-to-play games like Runescape will make its appearance on gaming consoles in the future.

Jagex CEO, Mark Gerhard, recently talked about the possibility of their famous free-to-play RPG – Runescape – to appear on video game consoles. Looking optimistic, the CEO hopes that the “Big 3″ console manufacturers – Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo – will open their systems to accommodate games that rely on large community and free-to-play payment schemes.

According to Mark Gerhard, there is a reason such free-to-play games like Runescape has not yet been accommodated by console manufacturers. That is because the companies are unwilling to enable their gamers to play with another user on a different hardware. Nevertheless, Nintendo confirmed in the past that their new console – the Wii U – will feature a more robust and developer-friendly online system.

With Runescape still growing and becoming popular, and cross-hardware interactions are being seen on number of PC and PS3 games, a free-to-play game in a console might come to reality in just a matter of time.

Wii U Controller Patent Application Unveils New Details

Written on August 15, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Nintendo's patent registration for its Wii U controller reveals many features that gamers should keep an eye for.

Nintendo’s patent application for the Wii U controller is said to feature a magnetic field sensor, flash memory and a dedicated CPU. In addition to this, the shuriken, baseball, golf demos, Shield Pose demo, and an airplane shooting game are described. The patent application also mentioned several possible specific technology implementations, but it can be subject to change.

The Wii U controller’s magnetometer, usually used as a compass when embedded in smartphones, is used as a reference orientation — a combination of accelerometer and gyrosensor motion data. Meanwhile, the dedicated CPU is embedded in a device referred as Codec LSI. This suggests that its primary purpose is to decode videos sent to the unit. In terms of video, it is generated in the Wii U console and sent over wireless connection. While the patent application specifically mentions H.264 as the system’s video codec, it indicates that a compression is required to stream videos. The MIMO capabilities of IEEE 802.11n WiFi is also mentioned as a data transmission method. The flash memory, on the other hand, might be used to store Mii character or more substantial data. Moreover, the Wii U controller contains an expansion port for unspecified accessories, though the application stated that this could be left off.
