Windows 7 Phones to Play Nice with Big Brother Xbox

  For the many good things that Xbox LIVE does, its closed nature makes one thing practically impossible. Cross-platform play. It's unlikely that Xbox owners will be playing online with PC or PS3 owners any time soon. But it's significantly more likely that they will be playing online with owners of fancy-pants new Windows 7 phones. Get the details after the break. Read More


Windows Phone 7 Xbox Live Launch Games, Details Revealed

Today's new details about the Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system's Xbox Live integration may have some iPhone owners re-reading their contracts with AT&T. After months of rumors and speculation, Engadget finally got to sit down with a WP7 phone and test out some of the new features and games. Hit the jump to find out what they thought. Read More


Xbox LIVE Arcade Enjoying Growth Spurt

Forecasting and Analyzing Digital Entertainment LLC, whose acronym "FADE" is far cooler than their actual name, have been forecasting and analyzing Xbox LIVE Arcade's takings. On the whole, things are looking good for the service, despite last month being a weak one. Hit the jump for some number-crunching. Read More


Nintendo Download - 1/25/10: Look Out for Numero UNO with New Game Downloads from Nintendo

On the outset, today's offerings don't really look like anything special, and that may lead some to feel that Nintendo couldn't keep up the string of good updates forever, but things aren't as bad as they seem. I doubt any of WiiWare's offerings-- UNO, bittos+, or the transparently-titled "Aha! I Found It!" Hidden Object Game will have anyone jumping out of their seats, though DSiWare's AiRace: Tunnel, Escapee GO!, and NUMBER BATTLE may pique some curiosity. But perhaps the hidden standout amongst today's offerings? Ghoul Patrol. It may not sound familiar, but this LucasArts title just so happens to be the sequel to Zombies Ate My Neighbors, and so may be worth a look for those who enjoyed the cult classic. But while that may be all well and good, I know some people are getting impatient and wondering the same thing as I: where is Cave Story already? Read More


Nintendo Download - 12/21/09 - 500th Downloadable Wii Game Makes for a Smashing Holiday Season

As time ticks down for 2009, one could only wonder which game would reach the Virtual Console first: Super Smash Bros., or Pilotwings. And with today marking the 500th release on Virtual Console, the choice seems obvious as the original Super Smash Bros. finally arrives in North America for a whopping 1,000 Wii Points. While relatively primitive compared to the likes of Melee and Brawl, this is one I still look forward to trying out, mostly for some of the unique stages that for whatever reason were never brought back in later installments. Smash Bros. isn't alone, however; the arcade version of Ninja Gaiden also arrives on Virtual Console... er, at last? It's 600 Wii Points, but Nintendo has an interesting way of selling it: "Each stage is based around popular Western misconceptions about ninja and Japan, making the game world a fantastic mix of ninja and American pop culture." On the upside, at least you can toggle settings, such as number of lives and difficulty, so perhaps it will be a more tolerable experience now. There are plenty of other releases this week, too, just in time for Christmas. That includes the game we looked at just last week, 530 Eco Shooter, now known here as "Eco Shooter: Plant 530," and Dragon's Lair for DSi. See what's what in the press release after the cut.

Nintendo Reveals First- and Third-Party Holiday Lineup

Nintendo has released the planned publishing schedule as it stands for the Wii and Nintendo DS/DSi, from both themselves and their third-parties. A lot of definite dates are not set in, instead referenced as "Fall," "Holiday," or "November," for example, but nonetheless serves to give us an idea of what the coming months will bring. "This extensive lineup will keep players busy throughout the fall and into 2010," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Shoppers know that Nintendo offers fun for everyone in the household." Nintendo also mentions the upcoming black Wii Remote, Nunchuk, and MotionPlus as being available "this holiday season," though they don't get any more specific than that. Hit the jump for the full press release and list of games that will become available. Read More
