According to Cammie Dunaway, of Nintendo of America, Wii gamers are hardcore. At the Electronic Gaming Summit, Dunaway noted:

– Wii male gamers = 79% (most are over 18, have an income of $50,000)
– More than half game five hours or more per week

– 45% of other members in the house who play Wii are female (38% of which are older than 25)
– 65% play more than 2 hours a week
– 32% play more than 5 hours a week

So, who said that only children play Nintendo products?

21 May 2008 – Get ready for a double treat this summer as the season is set to be full of tasty food and colourful new Nintendo DS Lites!

Preparing breakfast, lunch and dinner with Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What To Eat? on one of three exciting new Nintendo DS Lite colours of Red, Turquoise or Green – a European first for that colour – is set to be a whole new mouth-watering experience!

Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What to Eat? Goes beyond the capabilities of printed cookbooks and literally talks budding chefs step-by-step through all the processes involved in cooking a tasty dish. With its numerous international recipe choices, dish search options, videos and simple step-by-step guides to choosing, preparing and cooking a dish, Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What to Eat? can turn even the most hesitant of cooks into confident chefs. Cooks control the software through the Nintendo DS’s Touch Screen and by the user’s voice via the handheld’s microphone. It is simple for everyone to use, no matter what their previous experience – either with a Nintendo DS or in the kitchen!

“Basically, we decide. There is a certain number of titles that we have in the pipe, which are available, and then we select the ones we want to use. Then we have to proceed to localisation, which is always an important issue for Europe. I could tell you tons of stories about how difficult it is to bring back some games to the Virtual Console. The first issues are always legal-related issues: first we need to get the IP, and then you realise that you have one studio which owns one part of the game, then another studio has another part, which reduces the chances further. Then you have to get legal clearance, so it’s a long journey for us to pull together all those things. And sometimes the IP owner will just say ‘oh no thank you, I don’t want this on Virtual Console’. So it’s a case-by-case basis.” – Laurent Fischer, Senior marketing director of NoE

I’m not too sure as to why an IP owner would not allow a game to appear on the Virtual Console. It’s pretty much a win-win situation for the owner and gamers. On the other hand, I can understand the legal issues involved with the Virtual Console selection process. Are the problems mentioned by Mr. Fischer really the reasons as to why we have not seen Earthbound on the Wii Shop Channel yet?
