Nintendo Sells 1.5 Million Consoles Over Black Friday Week

While Black Friday is over and done with, and we're knee-deep in the savings that come with Cyber Monday, it looks like Nintendo made a killing off the Black Friday week. They sold plenty of consoles, which include members of the DS family, as well as the Wii home console. They sold enough, in fact, that the company feels like a formal press release is the right thing to do. Some may call this bragging, but then again, when you've sold as many consoles as Nintendo did, there might be a little room to do that.

Nintendo Seeks Patent to Use DS for Shopping Lists in Wireless Shopping Network

Nintendo Seeks Patent to Use DS for Shopping Lists in Wireless Shopping Network

Nintendo's plans for the DS were grand. They didn't just want another mobile video game console, where only gamers were attracted to it. They wanted their device, and all of the subsequent hardware releases since then, to be carried around everywhere, no matter what the person was doing. This new patent that Nintendo is aiming for would help that case, by allowing users to build a shopping list that would connect to a wireless shopping network, and ultimately bring a new and interactive way for shoppers to find their goods.

Nintendo Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary DSi LL Edition System Unveiled

If you hadn't heard, the Nintendo 3DS got an official release date of February 26th in Japan, and it's going to cost quite a bit. As soon as the announcement broke, revealing the price, gamers in Japan immediately began saving, even if they weren't consciously aware of it. But now, it looks like there may be something else to buy between then and now: the Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary DSi LL edition. Which means the Wii isn't getting all the anniversary love.

With the release of the TRON sequel just about on us (it's going to be the perfect Christmas gift, after all), there's no reason you should be surprised to see that the video game version's Collector's Edition has just broken cover.

R4 Cards Banned in the UK, Nintendo Rejoices

If you're not a fan of homebrew applications, or getting paid software for free, then an R4 card may not be something you're familiar with. Nintendo, though, is very familiar with them, as they've been a nuisance to their way of business for a few years now. Getting your hands on some pirated Nintendo DS titles is actually remarkably easy, and using an R4 card to play it on your mobile video game console used to be just as easy. But, not anymore, thanks to the high courts in the UK, who have just decided to ban them from the country.

NTT DoCoMo Working With Various Players to Bring 3G to Handheld Game Manufacturers

When it comes to video games in the hand, having a WiFi connection isn't necessarily a newfangled feature. In fact, some handheld consoles out there require a WiFi connection to actually be viable. And while the Nintendo 3DS has WiFi, yes, and Nintendo wants the console to have an "always-connected" presence to those WiFi networks, what about when you're not near a hotspot of any sorts? If a new report from The Wall Street Journal says what it's clearly saying, then it looks ilke NTT DoCoMo over in Japan is hard at work with various unnamed folks to bring 3G connectivity to handheld gaming consoles.

The Daily Slash: June 28th 2010

With at least one more announcement to go until June can officially end, tonight's edition of The Daily Slash may seem like it's a bit weighted. But, we assure you that, just like any other edition, it'll be worth it. First up, as usual, is the Best of R3 Media.
