Capcom planning to release new games for Wii U rather than ports

Now that the Wii U is here, we need some games to play on it.

Sorry Resident Evil fans, but it looks like you won't be getting Resident Evil 6 on the Wii U.

Why Nintendo Must Launch A New Console In 2014

Why Nintendo Must Launch A New Console In 2014

The gaming industry is ready yet again for a major change. Every five years or so, gamers are asked to toss away their old hardware and buy the new stuff. The cost, of course, is high, and the effort to actually get a new console is somewhat ridiculous in the beginning, but like good, trusting gamers, we oblige.

The so-called “next generation” is starting now. Nintendo has launched its Wii U, and that device delivers HD graphics and a vastly improved experience compared to the company’s previous console, the Wii. For now, the console is sold out and likely will remain so for the next few months.

Microsoft reportedly plotting set-top box alongside next-gen Xbox

It's pretty obvious that Microsoft and Sony have started work on their next generation gaming consoles, but Microsoft might have more than just the next Xbox up its sleeve. According to a new report from The Verge, Microsoft is planning to launch a set-top box of its own at some point next year.

Skyrim: Hearthfire now on PC, no new updates on Dawnguard PS3

Skyrim: Hearthfire now on PC, no new updates on Dawnguard PS3

Skyrim's second serving of DLC, Hearthfire, launched on PC today, meaning that eager homebuilders can get to work constructing their dream house (or at least something resembling their dream house). Hearthfire costs the same on Steam as it does on Xbox 360 - $5 - and for that paltry amount, you get to buy up plots of land, collect raw materials, and then use those materials to build a house, which could potentially include things like a greenhouse or an armory. You can also move your spouse into your freshly-built home and, if you really want your Skyrim experience to mirror real life, adopt children.
