Would A Nintendo Tablet Be A Good Idea?


It’s no surprise that has already begun work on their next generation console. It always happens; as soon as a company releases their new gaming machine, they immediately begin work on its successor. With the Wii, Nintendo introduced motion gaming to the masses and had outstanding success. With the Wii U, Nintendo wanted to bring a 2 screen experience to the home console and was greeted with so-so results. Some praise its dual screen experience while others have called the system underpowered and confusing to the normal consumer. Nintendo has found themselves in an interesting predicament as of late. That’s why we here at MVGN think that a Nintendo tablet device would not only be a good idea, it would be welcomed by us with open arms.

What we believe here at MVGN is that Nintendo should explore a tablet like device that would be both their next portable device and their home console. The “Nintendo-Tab” would be similar to Apple’s own iPad and could feature Amiibo support as well as a thumb drive that allows gamers to stream their gameplay on their HDTV’s.

If I Ran Microsoft, This is How E3 2012 Would Go Down

E3 2012 is right around the corner and the pressure seems to be on Microsoft this year as they have had a fantastic 2012 thus far and last year’s conference seemed a bit too focused on “Kinectivity”. The Kinect has no doubt found its way into millions of homes and has helped the XBOX 360 have longevity in this console race, I am just very interested to see what will happen this year at E3….

So, following our other story “If I ran Nintendo, this is how E3 2012 would go down“, If yours truly was in charge of Microsoft, this is how E3 2012 would go down.
