With the introduction of the Nintendo 2DS to bolster the Nintendo 3DS line-up, it seems that the days of the Nintendo DS could be drawing to a close. But it turns out Nintendo still makes a couple of models of the hardware. You just might not see them in your neck of the woods.
The long-lived and long-loved Nintendo DS, the thing that's sold more than 150 million devices (in four formats) and damn near a billion games, received no projected sales in financial statements the company filed today. Is this the end of the world's most successful gaming handheld?
For nearly a decade now, Nintendo has made a very focused effort to makeover how Japan views video games. To do that, Nintendo's needed help from the country's most famous females.
One of the best values in gaming gets even better on May 20, when Nintendo drops the price of the DSi to $99.99, with its larger sibling the DSi XL at $129.99.
Remember the DSi XL? Sure you do! Nintendo hasn't forgotten it, either. That's way today, Nintendo announced two new bundles for the jumbo-sized DSi handheld.
Nintendo is no stranger to hardware iterations. Its last portable, the Nintendo DS, saw several major revisions. The 3DS is a different story. It just came out a few months ago but is already seeing half-hearted hardware upgrades. (A snap-on second slide pad? Ugh.) And 3DS owners should be pissed.
Today, Nintendo revealed that it will release a new DSi XL color—Metallic Rose. Nintendo described it as "eye-catching shade of pink with a luminous modern sheen". How fetching.
Walmart stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and South Carolina will be offering up to $100 trade credit towards the 3DS for your old Nintendo DS systems March 27 through April 30.
For years now, Nintendo has put its DS in test-runs in Kyoto classrooms on the grounds that it was a good tool to study math or foreign languages with. Nintendo's probably right. And now, the game maker is doing the same in the States but with art.
The 3DS is able to render 3D without the need of 3D glasses. Neat trick, but the 3DS has another ace up its sleeve.
The Nintendo DS is the most successful portable gaming machine on the planet. More than 100 million of them are out there. Should you get one, or wait for the Nintendo 3DS? [UPDATED for the pre-3DS shopping season.]
Years ago, Nintendo released the Nintendo DS and the DS Lite. Anyone could import them and play games on them. Those days are long gone, and with the Nintendo 3DS, they don't look like they're returning.
First released in Japan in Fall 2008, the Nintendo DSi brought a new era to Nintendo's handheld gaming with a low-res camera. That era, it seems, is apparently finished.
With more than 47 million Nintendo DS handhelds sold in the United States since the portable's launch in 2004, Nintendo is calling the DS the country's best-selling gaming system of all time. Does it really count?
Fueled by new hardware colors and special holiday bundles, Nintendo had a very happy Black Friday week indeed, with 1.5 million video game systems finding their way into the hands of gaming-hungry shoppers. What systems sold the most?
We aren't done with the shopping holidays before the holidays. Tomorrow's Cyber Monday, a new tradition whereby folks who skipped Black Friday hit online retailers (typically from a work computer). Updated at 12:30 p.m. with more new Steam deals.
Consoles on the cheap! Twofer video games! Accessories galore! It's here, the gauntlet of shopping that is the run-up to the holidays in the U.S. [Updated daily, now includes: Alienware, Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Kmart, MadCatz, Meijer, Old Navy, Target, Toys R Us and Walmart. ]
