China has decided to lift its ban on video game consoles. The ban was temporarily lifted by the government in January, but the only way console manufacturers could sell consoles was with government approval. Now it appears that China has completely lifted its ban and consumers will soon be able to purchase any console they want.

Nintendo TVii Shutting Down Service 

  
Nintendo’s TVii service is set to close up shop come next month. The service was available for the past 3 years and was a nifty little feature for the Wii U system that could’ve been used a bit better if they decided to “flesh out” the app. Here is what they had to say regarding Nintendo TVii:

After almost 3 years of finding, watching and engaging with Nintendo TVii, we will be ending the service on August 11, 2015 at 3:00pm PT. At the same time, we will be closing the Nintendo TVii Miiverse community.

We sincerely thank you for all of your engagement within the community and the Nintendo TVii service. We look forward to your contributions within our many other Miiverse communities.

If you have read the internet at all this past day or so, you will have found out by now that Mr Iwata has sadly passed away. I sincerely cannot believe how chocked I am over this news and pray for his family and friends. Today’s image of the day will be held in his honor. It is of Nintendo Japan’s HQ with a rainbow over the building. It’s a pretty nifty little image and one that will stick with us for some time.
