Nintendo to launch Classic Mini NES console this C...

There will be a new Nintendo console out this year, but not the successor to the Wii U. Instead it’s a 30-in-1 palm-sized version of the NES.

Husky Wing Does anyone know if this Mini can play cartridges?

Waluigifan ! You can't and apparently you can't download additional games. Which makes this hardware pointless in my opinion. The price for the controller (9.99) is really good though.

Husky Wing Yep. Pointless.

You better show Metroid and some Zelda in E3. Dont need to see anything else. You should just throw everything else in garbage bin and bring in some Metroid and Zelda footage.

"It shows that the games industry is, in fact, so volatile that even a powerhouse like Nintendo is not impervious to it.

Nintendo's current game plan is likely to provide enough runway to develop a full strategy and rollout that capitalises on the current market changes.

The thing to remember about Nintendo is to never count it out."

Motherfucking cowards.

While Nintendo's official statement on the matter of Alison Rapp's firing strives to distance the company from anything related to the orchestrated online campaign of harassment and defamation that was raging against her, their timing in dealing with the issue is dubious at best," said Edwards, in a statement published by Gamesbeat.

"Unfortunately, the company seems oblivious to the consequences of their actions, not realizing the perceived victory it handed to the online hate groups who are now pursuing the dismissal of other women game developers by derision and defamation to their companies.

"By now, we would expect that all game development and publishing companies would be fully aware of negative social media dynamics and be more discerning of online feedback, as well as more protective of their employees - especially their employees of diverse backgrounds. Many have become proactive and aware but this industry obviously needs to make more progress.”

msg . You have to remember that you represent your place of work at all times. You may well have certain views, but you should keep them off social media. And if you have another job glamour modelling you should have a false identity and not include your workplace products. Her sacking was thoroughly deserved imo.

Not Important Well, when you are a public figure of a company that makes toys for kids, and you moonlight as a glamour model in tiiny tiny outfits, and write bullshit tweets like the ones Sean posted, it's pretty understandable that she got let off. I don't know if it had something to do with the "internet hate mob", but what I do now is that what she did was apparently against company policy, and they had every right to fire her for knowingly breaking it.

Demi Axersia Sorry Gries, but she signed a contract agreeing to not seek out additional employment, and she broke it. Done. Doesn't matter that she made sexy photos (which she apparently posted to her twitter despite using a false identity...), doesn't matter that she's written a thesis on child pornography laws and made numerous tweets that Nintendo clearly did not know about when they hired her. Unofficially, of course, it does matter, but luckily for Nintendo they don't need to acknowledge that. They can just say she broke contract and be done with it. Of course, the whole internet hate mob stuff is unfortunate, especially since someone like her would've clearly loved to have the 13 y/o Xenoblade X character walk around in a bikini and the booby slider stay in (in fact, there's a tweet of her out there stating exactly that), and she had nothing to do with the censorship. I certainly don't agree with targeting her over that, but all in all, she's not a person worth defending. Same with that guy who got fired from Nintendo last year for being a little too frank about their localization policies. Sucks that you lost your job, but all you had to do was not do the thing you did.

Nintendo changed their logo from the gray/white version back to the old red/white version:

Richard Pale It's all a conspiracy I tell you! Gries is probably in on it.

Silent Gamer An end to Gawker media will be a good thing, but unfortunately that means the staff of all the places they've bought over will be the ones to suffer. That's business though I guess.

Retro Wolf Her firing is pretty much deserved. You can have your own thoughts as to what the legal system should and shouldn't do, but don't post it on social media, especially when it's a touchy subject like child porn/sexualization.

You can tell Nintendo what you think about their social media channels and amiibos and stuff. Take the survey here: https://t.co/CZzHCPQgcs

Husky Wing Can you provide a link to an article discussing this?

msg . There's a lot I'd like to tell Nintendo but I'd rather watch them fail then get richer following my advice - Build better shit and stop rehashing games! I'll not take that survey.
