Jon gives us five ways that Nintendo can improve its online relationship with its fans.

Regardless of the North American fate of Xenoblade, Pandora's Tower, and The Last Story, the furor surrounding Operation Rainfall has exposed what is perhaps Nintendo's greatest weakness: its lack of meaningful online interaction and communication with its consumers.  In this era of social media,...

Nintendo's Tipping Point? WiiWiiU

Jon wonders if Operation Rainfall could mark a turn in Nintendo's fortunes.

Malcolm Gladwell's The Tipping Point is a book that I've had sitting around for a while, and recently I've decided to finish it off (yes, even my Kindle has a backlog). It attempts to answer the question of what contributes to certain products or behaviors going "viral", and breaks down the elements... Read more...

Lindy's Thoughts: E3 2010 Day...Zero?

Discuss in talkback!

The Director gives us his random musings on the non-first day of the show.

So I'm checking my email on Monday morning, waiting for anything important to come across the wire in terms of our L.A. team getting into the EA, Ubisoft, or Activision events that day. Karlie sends me a random missive with the subject, "No time to crop, and no words reqired". I notice that there's an image attached, so I download it and behold...

At GameStop, Freedom Has a Price Wii

Jon visits GameStop in search of a free disc and gets more than he bargained for.

Late last week I stopped in at a GameStop at a local mall to pick up Capcom's free Monster Hunter Tri demo disc. I stopped in on my lunch break, and thanks to several nearby schools the place was, predictably, a zoo. A large crowd is something I can handle, but what I have a harder time stomaching is the chain's borderline dishonest customer service.

We grows up, and we grows up, and we grows up.

Would you let this man run your website?

Is it March 7th again already? My, how the years fly by. Why it seems like only yesterday we were celebrating the 10th anniversary of the site, and here it is the 11th anniversary already. And of course, Nintendo World Report just keeps chugging along.

Choose Your Weapons

by Jon Lindemann - 10:48 pm PST

The launch of the PSP draws ever closer. Jon examines what Nintendo can do with its DS to steal Sony’s thunder in March.

I went to lunch with my friend Jason the other day. He’s a 30-year-old computer programmer, a photography buff, and a gadget fiend. But he's not a gamer; he's done some PC gaming in his time, but consoles have never been his cup of tea. So imagine my surprise when he turned to me and asked if... Read more...

Why Consumers Will Buy the NGC

by Jon Lindemann - 4:58 pm PST

What will compel consumers to buy Nintendo's GameCube? Veteran writer Jon Lindemann offers this analysis as his first contribution to PGC.

This fall, consumers are going to have the opportunity to choose between Sony's Playstation 2, Microsoft's X-Box, and Nintendo's Gamecube. All of these systems are extremely powerful and capable of playing some incredible games, but those among us who aren't rock stars or professional ballplayers... Read more...
