Nintendo plans to kill the Wii U by 2018

Last month, Japanese newspaper Nikkei wrote a story about how Nintendo was going to kill off the Wii U by the end of 2016. This was quickly squashed by the company when it said the report was inaccurate. However, with the imminent release of Nintendo’s upcoming system — the code named NX — it’s only a matter of time until the Wii U finally meets its end. According to a new report, we may now know when that will be.

According to Reuters and the BBC (via GameSpot), Nintendo CEO Tatsumi Kimishima said that the company plans to end production of the Wii U by March 2018. This wasn’t something that was announced as part of the officialfinancial earnings report we reported on earlier today, but was instead part of a Q&A session the CEO had with analysts and reporters. If this is true, then it would mean that the Wii U will end production exactly one year after the release of the NX. Read More

Microsoft will reveal a new Xbox One controller and other hardware at E3

We’ve heard a lot of talk about new hardware from the Big Three console manufacturers throughout the year, but have yet to actually see anything concrete from Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. With E3 just around the corner, you’d figure that the event would be the perfect place to officially reveal something to the world. If sources within Microsoft are correct, it’s possible that the Redmond giant will finally reveal some new hardware in June. Although it may not be a brand new console, we could be seeing other hardware announcements that should be interesting.

According to thurrott, we can expect to see a new standard Xbox One controller get announced. This controller won’t be radically different than the one that currently comes with the console, though. At most we’ll see a new color design, if there is even one at all. Reporter Brad Sams believes the controller could be white, but I believe that unless a new white Xbox One is also announced, that the controller will remain black. Read More

Throwing a Kid’s Birthday Party Adults Will Enjoy

Arranging a child’s birthday get-together doesn’t need to mean tossing a party that speaks to the kids – and feels like another dime-a-dozen weekend for dads and moms. Without a doubt, the parents ought to be compensated and celebrated, as well, for the diligent work of child rearing!

Here are her top tips for making a memorable children’s birthday party that grown-ups too will appreciate:

  • Ditch the licensed characters. Many kids go nuts for the characters from their favorite movies or shows.
  • Choose but don’t overuse the details. A theme for a kid’s birthday party doesn’t have to mean one idea repeated in every detail.
  • Broaden the guest list. “Don’t be afraid to celebrate your kids with your kid-free friends,”
  • Serve adult-friendly fare.”What would you serve the adults if they came without their children?” Granger-Twomey encourages hosts to ask themselves. “Think past the pizza, cupcakes, and juice boxes.”
  • Hire entertainment for the kids. If the budget allows, consider an entertainer — GamesOnTruck— to occupy the kids … and allow the parents a bit of hands-free time to enjoy the fete themselves with their friends.
  • Consider an evening affair. Of course, kids have early bedtimes, and that’s why their parties are traditionally around the lunch hour.

How To Throw a Minecraft Birthday Party

Ah, the Minecraft birthday party. What every little boy or girl is wanting this year, mine included. When presented with the idea of a Minecraft birthday party I was a little overwhelmed, truth be told, since I don’t pay attention to the games that Mr K plays, that job falls upon his Dad. Being the brilliant tech-minded guy that he is, Mike vetoes every game or website that the kids play and when I looked at Minecraft I was a little unimpressed, to say the least. I don’t really “get it. Read More

End of the road for Xbox 360

The reign of the Xbox 360 has come to an end. Microsoft Corp said on Wednesday it would stop production of its popular Xbox 360 video game console, which helped the company gain a firm foothold in the market.

They will continue to sell existing inventory, with availability varying.Though production will cease, Microsoft will continue to provide support.And, games will be playable through Xbox One Backward Compatibility.

More than 80 million units of the console have been sold since it was launched in 2005. Sales of older-generation consoles, such as the Xbox 360 and Sony’s PlayStation 3, have been declining as consumers shift to newer versions of the consoles from the companies.
