[Note: This is a re-post from Ploked from 3/15/10] Prior to 2006, video games were for the hardcore. Xboxes, PlayStations, and Gamecubes separated the boys from the men.

Late one night, five kids from Politecnico di Milano in Italy were sitting around a camp fire and decided to hash out the top five trends they thought were most visible around the world. Instead of writing a fat dissertation on it all, they spared us the reading and […]


After shacking up the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Nintendo’s Wii console is at last getting streaming video via Netflix. The content will apparently not be HD, but according to Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, it doesn’t matter because it’s not important to Wii owners.

The Nintendo DSi XL hasn’t even launched in the U.S. and Europe yet, and already there is talk about what hardware the successor to the world’s best selling handheld video game system will have.
