You Can’t Use The Word ‘Nintendo’ In A Nintendo Network ID

Kind of obvious but when registering for a Nintendo Network ID, there are specific words that you cannot use; some of which include vulgarities and the word ‘Nintendo.’ Remember, once you make a Nintendo Network ID, you are bound to it for life – so choose wisely!

No Online Pass Needed For FIFA, Mass Effect Or Assassin’s Creed On Wii U

It has been revealed that you won’t have to register an online pass from either EA or Ubisoft to play their games online. The online pass is needed on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 to activate online play. If you purchase a game second-hand on either of those consoles then you have to purchase an online pass to play the games online. Thankfully this doesn’t seem to be the case with Wii U.

No se requiere de un pase en linea para jugar juegos de EA o Ubisoft tal y como se les requiere a los usuarios de Xbox 360 y PS3 para activar su juego en linea.
Si compraste el juego usado en esas consolas no podras jugar en linea. Afortunadamente en el Wii U no sera asi el caso y puedes comprar usado cuando quieras xD

Nintendo Land Missing From Some European Wii U Deluxe Consoles

It appears as though a number of people are reporting that their Wii U 32GB Deluxe consoles don’t have Nintendo Land in the box. All Wii U Deluxe consoles are meant to have a copy of Nintendo Land tucked inside. This seems to be the case for people who have ordered the system from Amazon, but I suspect the same will happen to others that have ordered elsewhere. Did your European Deluxe system have Nintendo Land in the box?

Good day people!

Nuevo Zelda y Mario 3D para Wii U confirmados por Satoru Iwata

En una reciente entrevista con IGN el Sr Iwata menciono que en un futuro estaran anunciando nuevos juegos de las franquicias principales de Nintendo, aunque no revelo fechas. Citamos lo siguiente:
 "Anunciaremos las fechas de lanzamiento para nuevos juegos 3D de Zelda y Mario en el futuro, pero esta no es la oportunidad indicada para dar dichos anuncios."
Es difícil saber que tanto tiempo es ese futuro puesto que no es común que se den anuncios en el mes de Noviembre, las compañías se enfocan mas en darle prioridad a sus catálogos de fin de año. Quiza veremos mas de esto en el próximo E3 del 2013 y eso sera hasta Junio. Sin embargo el Sr. Iwata dio unas palabras de aliento para los que quieren ver nuevos juegos lo mas pronto posible:
"...mientras desarrollamos una nueva plataforma en hardware, nos preguntamos la pregunta, que tipo de nuevo Zelda o juego de Mario quisieran hacer los desarrolladores de software en esta?"

Nintendo seguramente ha estado pensando en mane…

Satoru Iwata Feels ‘Very Sorry’ For Wii U Owners Who Have To Experience A Network Update

Nintendo global president Satoru Iwata says he feels ‘very sorry’ for consumers who experience a lengthy network update right after setting up their Wii U consoles. Some Wii U users claim to have waited for five hours to complete the new console’s necessary day one update.

“Personally I think that users should be able to use all the functions of a console video game machine as soon as they open the box. So I feel very sorry for the fact that purchasers of Wii U have to experience a network update which takes such a long time, and that there are the services which were not available at the hardware’s launch.”
He better fix this and every other Wii U Issue some users have been experiencing, or cut his salary again!!

Nintendo Can Transfer Your Nintendo Network Account To Another Wii U Console

Although you cannot sign into your Nintendo Network account on someone else’s Wii U, Nintendo, of course, has the ability to transfer your account and Nintendo Network ID to another console. A North American consumer had to send in a bricked Wii U system to Nintendo, and Nintendo then sent back a brand-new console that allowed the owner to sign into his or her previously made Nintendo Network account.

Microsoft Sold More Xbox 360s During Black Friday Week Than Wii U Consoles

Microsoft has announced that it managed to sell more Xbox 360 consoles than Wii U consoles during the week of Black Friday. Microsoft sold over 750,000 Xbox 360s and Nintendo sold 400,000 Wii U consoles. However, it should be noted that there were supply issues with the Wii U with a few stores completely selling out of the console. Nintendo has been busy replenishing stock.

Nintendo Provides More Details for Wii Mini

Nintendo has announced that Wii Mini will be available to Canadians on December 7th. The console lacks an internet connection and doesn’t play Gamecube games. Also, unlike the original Wii, the Wii Mini has a manually operated top-loading disc drive. Nintendo of America has yet to confirm whether the console will be available in the US. The system will retail for $99.99.

Nintendo ha anunciado que el Wii Mini estara disponible el 7 de Diciembre en Canada. La consola no incluye conectividad al internet y no es compatible con juegos del Gamecube. Tambien a diferencia del Wii original, el Wii Mini tiene un lector de discos que se opera manualmente por la parte superior de la consola.

Canada’s Best Buy website has revealed that the rumoured Wii Mini is in fact real and will be available to purchase on December 7th. The console sports a square form factor, a black and red colour scheme and comes bundled with a Wii Remote.

Nintendo TVii Available for Wii U Launch In Japan

When the Wii U launches in Japan, on December 8th, Nintendo TVii will be made available for Japanese consumers from the get-go. Nintendo confirmed earlier this week that Nintendo TVii is coming next year to select regions in Europe. The built-in, convenient application will be activated next month for Wii U owners in North America.

The Wii U Is Somewhat Portable

Although the new Wii U is primarily a home video game console, who’s to say you can’t take it with you and play it on the go? You don’t always need the TV screen to see what is being displayed by the Wii U, because of its unique touchscreen controller, the Wii U GamePad.

This means that, for example, if you have your Wii U powered on via a car power adapter, you can play full games, including Scribblenauts Unlimited and New Super Mario Bros. U, on road trips without dragging along a cumbersome TV.

Reggie Says Microsoft And Sony Need To React To Wii U

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has told CNET that he believes both Sony and Microsoft need to react to Wii U. Fils-Aime went on to say that pretty visuals and raw power alone won’t be enough to entice consumers, so they will need to come up with their own innovations.

“In the end, our competitors need to react to what we’re doing in the marketplace and need to figure out what their innovation will be.”

“It’s likely that faster processors and pretty pictures won’t be enough to motivate consumers. They need to react to what we’ve done and we need to continue innovating with the Wii U – and we will.”

Cloudberry Kingdom Delayed on eShop

Developer Pwnee Studios has confirmed that its first Wii U game, Cloudberry Kingdom, will not launch this month as previously scheduled. The game will eventually be released on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. When the game is complete, the developer said it plans to launch the game on various platforms at the same time.

”Unfortunately it is not. Looks like we’re going to delay for a bit and go for a simultaneous launch across multiple platforms.”

LEGO City: Undercover Wii U TV Commercial

Nintendo has released the first commercial Lego City Undercover which is an upcoming sandbox-style action-adventure video game, currently in development by TT Fusion, a division of TT Games. The last time we heard about the game it was scheduled to be released within the Wii U launch window. Let’s hope that is still the case.

Nintendo TVii Coming To Europe In 2013

Nintendo UK has confirmed that the free video application Nintendo TVii will be launching in selected regions throughout Europe during next year. Nintendo of America announced that the service will be arriving in North America sometime next month. The video service was originally meant to debut along with Wii U on November 18th.

Black Ops 2 On Wii U Is Sub-HD And Has Worst Frame-Rate

Digital Foundry has found that the Wii U version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is sub-HD and features a number of problems with the frame-rate. The report states that the frame-rate makes the PlayStation 3 version feel smoother, while the Xbox 360 version feels like a completely different game. Have you noticed problems with your version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for Wii U?

While Wii U matches PS3 performance in a range of gameplay scenes, the more ambitious levels bring performance down to unacceptably low levels.

The Wii U version matches the look of the Xbox 360 game and thus gives it an edge visually over the PlayStation 3 release, but unfortunately it comes up well short in terms of performance – an aspect that is all-important to the playability of a COD title. The frame-rate variance is such that the PS3 game feels generally smoother, while the 360 release feels like an entirely different game in the more demanding levels. Bearing in mind the commonalities in hardware design…

Wii U Freezing Patch Coming Next Week?

A member of online community Reddit contacted Nintendo of America customer support about the freezing issue which seems to be affecting quite a few Wii U owners. The customer service representative told the individual that they were aware of the issue and that there should be a patch coming sometime next week.

“I called about my Wii U locking up at random and the lady surprised me when she said that I should wait until next week to apply the new system update that should fix the issue and if it does not then I should call back and do further troubleshooting. So I asked her “are you telling me that there will be a update for the Wii U next week that will fix these freezing issues?” and she again said that there would be an update and it would likely fix my problem. The only other info she asked of my was what color the system was (so they can keep track of basic vs deluxe console issues I assume) and what game I was playing when it was freezing.”

“So there you have it, get ready for a…

Reggie: It Only Takes One Game Sale To Make Wii U Profitable

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has disclosed to the Mercury News that it only takes one Wii U game sale to make the console profitable for Nintendo. We’ve already heard from GameStop that the attach rate for the Wii U is extremely healthy, at 2.4 per console sold. So it seems that Nintendo should be making a profit with its latest home console.

“The business model doesn’t change dramatically, in that as soon as we get the consumer to buy one piece of software, then that entire transaction becomes profit positive.”

“In the end, the business model is still to drive the install base of hardware, and then to drive a strong tie ratio with all of the other software and experiences for the consumer. And if we’re able to do that, then we will create significant profit for the company.”

Hulu Plus Now Available On Wii U

Video streaming service Hulu Plus is now available on Nintendo’s Wii U. Hulu Plus users can watch television shows and movies on either their TV screen or the Wii U GamePad‘s 6.2-inch touchscreen.

ZombiU Review Roundup

Based on 14 critics, Ubisoft’s Wii U-exclusive game, ZombiU, currently holds a 72/100 on Metacritic. Eurogamer praised the game for ‘taking a new path,’ and awarded it with a 9/10. Although Destructoid said ZombiU is awkward, ugly and often nonsensical, it awarded the game with an 8/10.

Greg Miller, the executive editor of IGN PlayStation, said ZombiU‘s controls are ‘clunky, melee combat is annoying, and the game doesn’t look good,’ and gave it a 6.3/10. GameSpot said ZombiU has an ‘uninteresting world and dull combat,’ and gave the game a 4.5/10 – its lowest score yet.

ZombiU can be purchased in North America via the Nintendo eShop for Wii U and/or at retail.

We just need to wait for a more professional review than IGN or Gamespot, with Gametrailers or Kotaku.

Beyond Good And Evil And Wii U ‘Are A Good Fit’

Michel Ancel, the creator behind Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil, says he believes that the Wii U would be a good fit for the long-awaited Beyond Good & Evil 2. Ancel went on to praise the Wii U and said that the system with the unique controller would be perfect for the next Zelda game.

“You’re right when you say that both the Wii U and Beyond Good And Evil fit very well, but for now I am only focused on Rayman Legends.”

“That’s [also] why I believe in an incredible Zelda game, the GamePad and classic control fit very well with such action-adventure games.”

Wii U Users Reporting System Crashes

A number of members from the Neogaf forums are reporting that they have been having issues with the Wii U freezing, and inevitably crashing. One user had to pull the plug on the console to get it to reboot. Hopefully Nintendo will issue a patch to stop these occurrences. Have you experienced any problems with your Wii U console?

Developers Don’t Have To Pay To Patch Their Wii U Games

Frozenbyte marketing manager Mikael Haveri says indie developers have the privilege of choosing the price of their Wii U products. Patching games can get quite expensive on other gaming platforms, but developers do not have pay to fix their games on Nintendo’s Wii U, according to Haveri.

“We have the power to price our products as we please, with just some basic guidelines from the big guys. The step to this is purely from Nintendo’s side and they clearly see that [their] previous installments have not been up to par. We can set our own pricing and actually continuing on that by setting our own sales whenever we want. It is very close to what Apple and Steam are doing at the moment, and very indie friendly.”

“Simply put, they’ve told us that there are no basic payments for each patch (which were pretty high on most platforms) and that we can update our game almost as much as we want. For indie developers this is huge.”

You Can’t Log Into Your Nintendo Network Account On A Different Wii U Console

When you press the Home button on the Wii U GamePad, you gain access to Wii U’s in-game Home Menu, in which you can manage your downloads, access your Friend List, Miiverse, the Nintendo eShop, Internet Browser and Nintendo TVii. Of course, you can also access the Wii U Menu directly from the new controller.

Wii U GamePad Turns Off When You Access Wii Mode

In order to play Wii games on the Wii U, you must perform a system update on the new console. The Wii U GamePad shuts off when you access Wii Mode, as Wii games cannot be played with the Wii U GamePad or Wii U Pro Controller. Also, Wii Mode seemingly excludes some Wii Channels; the only Wii Channels available for download are The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword fix and the System Transfer application.

To access the Wii Shop Channel on Wii U, you need to sign in with your Nintendo Network ID.
