Nintendo blocking PEGI 18+ Wii U content in Europe at certain times

Nintendo of Europe is prohibiting European users from accessing the Wii U’s eShop for games and trailers rated PEGI 18+ between 3:00 and 23:00. Under these circumstances, the four-hour window of 23:00 to 3:00 is the only time users can purchase games like ZombiU or Assassin's Creed III or even view trailers for such games. The story originated from a NeoGAF forum user, which reportedly received an email from Nintendo saying the following: Dear customer, we would like to let you know that Nintendo has always aimed to offer gameplay experiences suited to all age groups, observing carefully all the relevant regulations regarding content access that are present in the various European countries. We have thus decided to restrict the access to content which is unsuitable to minors (PEGI) to the 11 p.m.- 3 a.m. time window. Source: Eurogamer


Origin to power Wii U online

Electronic Arts is helping Nintendo in development of the Wii Uonline service, according to reports, and is bidding to make its Origin service a key part of the upcoming console's online offering. According to an EA intern, speaking to WiiUGo, the console's online service will offer voice and video chat, leaderboards and friends lists. Nintendo has previously said its approach to Wii U online will be "much more flexible," which the source claims is a deliberate attempt to differentiate the service from Xbox Live. "Many publishers are happy with Xbox Live's features, but they aren't happy with how strict Microsoft's guidelines are," said the source. "Nintendo went with an open, flexible approach to online because when it asked developers and publishers what they wanted in an online service, that was the number one thing they asked for." The prospect of EA powering Wii U online apparently appeals to Nintendo, too, with the source claiming the company sees it "as an opportunity to rebuild relationships with western gamers because they feel that only a massive western company such as EA understands what is needed to make an online service attractive to western gamers." Valve is also apparently bidding to make Steam…

Nintendo stands against DLC

Reggie Fils-Aime of Nintendo has just stated why their games don’t provide DLC: “When we sell a game, we want the consumer to feel that they’ve had a complete experience. We’re unwilling to sell a piece of a game upfront and, if you will, force a consumer to buy more later. That’s what [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent="yes" overflow="visible"][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type="1_1" background_position="left top" background_color="" border_size="" border_color="" border_style="solid" spacing="yes" background_image="" background_repeat="no-repeat" padding="" margin_top="0px" margin_bottom="0px" class="" id="" animation_type="" animation_speed="0.3" animation_direction="left" hide_on_mobile="no" center_content="no" min_height="none"][Nintendo representatives] don’t want to do, and I completely agree. I think the consumer wants to get, for their money, a complete experience, and then we have opportunities to provide more on top of that.” Nintendo seems to be one of the very few that understands the most of consumer in this field. On the other hand Nintendo (and other gaming companies) is a primary sponsor of SOPA (H.R. 3261), the internet censorship bill in the USA… Source: GamersXtreme[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]


Nintendo Wii U announced!

I don't know if you guys are watching the E3 right now, I do cause I'm a little ill lately and have nothing else to do, but today there was a Nintendo conference which practically blew everything away with their new Nintendo Wii U. It's going to have this cool new controler (see below) and hardware capable of displaying 1080p graphics featuring games like Battlefiled 3 and many others. I think it's safe to say that Microsoft and Sony just got their asses kicked! And here's a shot of the new console:
