Everyone waiting for the Revolution's official name can finally come up for air - it's been officially dubbed Wii, as in "we." The planet Earth has expressed its confusion (or bitter hatred) over this new name, though perhaps Nintendo's statement can offer some insight:
"Introducing… Wii. As in 'we.' While the code-name 'Revolution' expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer. Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else. Wii will put people
Does the phrase "United we stand, divided we fall" mean anything to you? It does if you're a fan of action RPGs or video games based on comic book characters. When individual heroes can't sustain their own titles, why not take the X-Men Legends idea and cram it full of every major character a license can buy?
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance promises to do just that. You'll be able to control more than 20 Marvel heroes in an overhead bash-em-up fashion. Just like the Legends games, each hero can be
The Madden series will be making its way to Nintendo's newly named Wii console as a totally unique product. Going under the working title of Madden Revolution, the game will have the same astonishing detail as other next-gen versions, but you'll interact with the motion-sensitive Wii controller.
From the line of scrimmage to the snap, the motion of receiving the ball will have to be mimicked with the controller in hand. Then, to make a pass, you'll have to make the motion of the desired pass

It's been confirmed that Konami's first game for Nintendo's Revolution console will be called Elebits and the project is headed by Shingo Mukaitouge, best known for his work on DrumMania.
Elebits gets its name from the stars of the game - small, cute Pikmin-ish creatures who, when not looking endearing, are the source of power for the magical world they inhabit. In fact the 'Ele' part of the name is a reference to 'electricity', while 'bit' is there just to emphasise

Speculation is mounting that Nintendo has been economic with the details of its Revolution controller and that the nunchaku part contains a sensor that can detect speed of motion and tilt.
It was previously believed that the unit - which will connect to the main controller via a cord - would only feature an analogue stick and two trigger buttons. But rumours are circulating that the unit will also have a built in accelerometer that can sense when the unit is being tilted
Sega has announced that it is currently working on Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz for Nintendo's next-gen console, Revolution, promising primate-in-a-sphere fun designed especially for the machine's wizzy-wand controller.
The usual blend of puzzle-based banana collection and amusing party diversions will return, although the motion-sensing capabilities of Revolution's controller should ensure that Banana Blitz will feel quite unlike previous Monkey Ball games, like the one
The seemingly endless Dragon Ball Z saga grew a little more endless today, as Atari announced two upcoming DBZ games for release later this year.
The first, Super DBZ, will hit PS2s this July. Not much has been revealed about the title as of press time, except that it will feature 18 characters, a new fighting system and "a more hard-core 3D fighting experience," according to Atari. For old-schoolers, though, the thing that makes this one worth watching is that it'll be developed by some of
We've still got a few weeks to go until E3, but an early list of showcased titles has revealed one more Revolution title - currently only known as "Flight Game." Here's the straight word:
"Take to the skies in a way never before experienced on any home console. Using the Revolution's 'Gesture System' built into their innovative controller, Hudson's new 'Flight Game' allows total plane control as players pilot their planes through various acrobatic flight maneuvers ranging from sky artistry to

Japanese developer Hudson Entertainment will be including a flight game for Revolution in its line-up for this year's E3.
The game is currently being referred to as 'Flight Game' and will allow players to control planes using the 'gesture function' of the Revolution controller, then take planes through stunt sequences and bombing runs.
Also in its line-up for E3 is another Bomberman game called Act Zero, which will be released for Xbox 360, and an update of the Dungeon

Word has just reached us that Polish developer Nibris has announced Sadness, a totally black and white, utterly mysterious game for Nintendo's Revolution console. We're failing to make any sense of the press release issued for the announcement, so we've published it here, in full, for your brain-fizzling delight:
"Exclusive Nintendo Revolution title Sadness will be fully... black and white!
"Nibris decided to follow Nintendo's path, which definitely fights the
