“Wii Prove our Promise”

As we all know, Nintendo will be on hand at Leipzig and is expected to give a keynote speech next month in Germany.

The keynote, called “Wii prove our promise”, is planned to take place August 23 and last from 10:15-11:15 AM (4:15-5:15 AM EST or 1:15-2:15 AM PST). Unfortionetly No other information has so far been provided, but I think that some of Nintendo’s biggest figures will be on hand. Whether or not Wii will be playable at the show is also unknown at this time.

According to some industry rumors, GC is expected to serve as the platform for new Nintendo Wii game announcements, and although any number of discussion points regarding Wii could be touched upon – company President Satoru Iwata did note in June that a launch date and price announcement would likely surface in or before September – it seems Nintendo’s next console will be the primary topic.

Stay tuned with Gameonrevolution for more details! Game ON!

Game Off for E3?!?!

The following was taken directly from Next-Gen:

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) shindig has been a staple of game industry life since the mid-1990s. However, we understand the larger exhibitors have jointly decided that the costs of the event do not justify the returns, generally measured in media exposure.

Publishers believe the multi-million dollar budgets would be better spent on more company-focused events that bring attention to their own product lines rather than the industry as a whole.

Well placed sources say the news that larger exhibitors were pulling out had prompted urgent meetings among publishing executives. They decided that, without the support of the larger software publishers and hardware manufacturers, there would be no point in continuing.

ESA president Doug Lowenstein will likely announce the news some time within the next 48 hours, possibly on Monday. It’s likely that the ESA will seek to limit the damage by organizing some form of lesser event in May, possibly even with the E3 brand, but this will be no more than a fig-leaf. The days of an industry event attended by all the major publishers, spending big money, are gone.

Calls to ESA staff are not being returned at present.

Should Wii have “Achievements?

I posted the follwing over on Nintendo’s official forums and it seemes to generate some interest so I have decided to also post it here:

I personally love the whole achievement idea that XBOX 360 offers and I think that it would be a great idea if Nintendo would implement something similar in their upcoming Wii system. There is also a rumor now that PS3 will be doing something similar to XBOX’s achievements. Think about it, wouldn’t it be cool if Nintendo would reward you “shines” or “stars” for beating certain games, then you could take those points and buy VC games. What do you guys think?

Metroid Prime 3 Download Goodies?!

The Ngamer Magazine released these details about Metroid Prime 3: Corruption:

Corruption’s Coders at Retro Studio’s are determined to take adventage of the Wii’s “always-on” broadband concept, but they havent worked out how yet. If Xbox Live 360’s downloadable updates are anything to go by, you can count on getting at least one bonus level out of it, and Retro is hinting that multiplayer mode might be a downloadable extra for later.

Interesting to say the least. It looks as though Wiiconnect24 is starting to take shape. We will be here to keep you updated as always. Thanks for stopping by.

More Wii Launch Rumors

Another day, and another rumor that points to a possible October release for Nintendo Wii. Apparently Activision, the company behind Tony Hawk Downhill Jam, listed the title to come out in October. Call of Duty 3 was also on their schedule but for a November release. Since then, Activision has mysteriously taken down the “October release” for Tony Hawk and replaced it with “upon Wii release”.

Has Activision slipped? Will Wii really ship in October, a full month before Sony’s PS3? I am going to leave it up to you guys to decide that one. All I know is that I am getting more and more pumped about this release. Leave one in the comment section. Game ON!
