Sony highlights shrinking market for disc media – Could streaming replace physical media?
Sony recently lowered its estimated earnings for the fiscal year ending 31 March, 2014. Having expected to earn ¥80 billion ($782 million / £463 million) during the financial year, it has now revised that figure to ¥26 billion ($254 million / £150 million).

WWE DVD Review: Royal Rumble 2013
First debuting in 1988, thanks to the mind of Pat Patterson, the Royal Rumble is seen as one of the WWE’s big four pay-per-view events of the year.

Wii U Hardware Review
After months of excited waiting, nights spent dreaming about Nintendo’s hardcore focused Project Cafe and time spent watching the realities come into focus, today’s finally the day. Today, the Wii U launches in the UK. As someone who banked all their hopes at the start of the last generation on the Wii and was ultimately left with a device that, while wonderful, lacked many of the games and features my friends had access too, I was unsure...

Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise Hands On Preview
Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise (known in North America as Rhythm Heaven Fever) is a Wii music rhythm game developed by Nintendo and TNX. The third in the Rhythm Heaven series, it comes out in Europe on July 6th. The game uses a clear and crisp 2D art style which makes the most of the Wii‘s graphical abilities. While the game may not have the resolution of games on an HD console, in my time playing the game it didn’t matter. What the...

Nintendo renaming the Wii U?

Nintendo renaming the Wii U?
Since E3 2011, many industry analysts have been criticising Nintendo’s plan to name their next home console the Wii U. The latest rumour moving through the industry is that they’re planning to rebrand the Wii U in the months leading up to this year’s E3 press conference. Much of Nintendo’s fear around sticking with the name Wii U apparently comes from the confusion that arose when the 3DS hit the shelves. Released back in spring 2011, Nintendo‘s...
