Amazon launches Nintendo Digital Downloads page

Nintendo Wii U and 3DS gamers in the US now have a new option when it comes to paying for digital game downloads: Amazon.com The internet shopping giant has just launched a digital download store dedicated to Nintendo's platforms, but it's much better than paying for a game, getting a redeemable code via email, and then entering it on a console's eShop.

Wii U demise might come sooner, 5 mobile games scheduled

Perhaps there is very little doubt in anyone's mind that the Wii U is on its way out, especially after Nintendo confirmed the existence of its NX successor. But the ball might actually be rolling sooner than most of us have presumed. Considering Nintendo's notoriety as a slow moving dinosaur, it is almost unfathomable that Nintendo would be putting the axe to its somewhat failed attempt at a current gen console. According to WIRED, however, the signs are quite strong. And perhaps more importantly, rapid change might exactly be what the doctor prescribed.

New Nintendo 3DS tipped for release in North America

This week Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime spoke up this week on the future of handheld gaming machines for the USA.
