Home Free: Why 360 and Wii Owners Should Root for PS3’s Home 50°
February 26, 2008 // 8:34 pm - Although all three consoles of this generation offer online play, originally Microsoft stood alone in it's decision to charge Xbox gamers for the ability to join their friends in online multi-player matches.

Recently this trend has continued with the announcement of Wii Pay & Playthat will similarly charge gamers an as-of-yet-undisclosed fee to take particular Wii titles online. The PlayStation 3 stands alone as the only console that gamers are not asked to pony up any dough whatsoever for online multi-player support.

At present, Microsoft feels confident that the market...

Wii System Update: Wii Menu 3.2 Now Available 50°
February 26, 2008 // 12:54 am - Notice your Wii's blue beacon calling out for you?

A minor update hit the Wii console tonight. The downloadable system update will bring the Wii Menu to version 3.2.

A letter delivered by Nintendo says: "Once installed, if a Game Disc is inserted into the Wii console and an update is required, a notification message will be displayed across the Disc Channel alerting you to update your system. If no update is needed, the title of the Game Disc inserted will be displayed."

Nothing major appears to have been updated. According to Nintendo, this update does...


Twilight Princess exploit leads to explosion of Wii hacks 50°
February 25, 2008 // 8:28 pm - Hacking your Wii to play Pong is one thing, but the recently-revealed Twilight Princess exploit allows all sorts of unsigned code to run natively on the Wii.

Homebrew developers are already starting to take advantage, releasing a bunch of interesting and/or useful unauthorized programs for Nintendo's little white box. Among them:

- Linux for Wii - Coming next: Linux on your toaster
- MP3 player - Just in case you don't like the crappy one included in the Photo Channel.
- SNES emulator - Who needs the Virtual Console when you can just steal ROMs of your fave...


Activision offering refunds for Wii version of Guitar Hero III 200°
February 25, 2008 // 12:14 am - As our bat-eared readers discovered when the game was first released, the Wii edition of Guitar Hero III, though advertised as possessing Dolby Surround Sound capabilities, could only duplicate one channel of audio through multiple speakers (a.k.a. mono sound).

Incensed, Nintendo's virtual troubadours demanded action -- Activision responded with a somewhat less-than-timely disc replacement program. Now, four months after the game was released, Activision has announced another method of atonement for their single-channel sins.

Instead of replacing your half-mute disc with...


New Era for Gaming: less graphics-intensive casual games 200°
February 23, 2008 // 5:31 pm - Those attending the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco this week may have noticed that a not-so-subtle revolution is going on in the world of computer games.

A "movement" is afoot–call it the casual game effect. This movement is being sparked by the Nintendo Wii and the fact that a plethora of low-cost games with minimal graphics are hitting the market.

In addition, cell phones are emerging as an important casual-game platform in the U.S. Put this all together and it's easy to see that the high-end 3D graphics-intensive game market is not necessarily...


GDC 2008: The Technology of Final Fantasy XIII 50°
February 23, 2008 // 5:18 pm - Like most Japanese developers, Square Enix has traditionally built the technology for each new game from scratch. While middleware solutions like the Unreal Engine have long been a favored solution for Western developers, the Square approach has been to tackle every new project from the ground up.

But this is changing as development costs skyrocket; the upcoming The Last Remnant will be built on Unreal 3, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King for WiiWare was deliberately conceived to test the feasibility of building a game almost entirely with middleware tools and...


GDC 2008: White Engine renamed to Crystal 50°
February 23, 2008 // 5:09 pm - Taku Murata's session at the GDC had some very interesting information: The White Engine, which is being used in Square Enix's next generation PlayStation 3 title Final Fantasy XIII, has been renamed and is now called Crystal Tools.

The engine is designed to work with the PlayStation 3, Xbox360 and the PC. The interesting part was when Taku Murata said some of the engine's features will work on the Wii, although, "it's a secret".

Is Square Enix planning to release more titles on the Wii?
