@orangpelupa Go to search. Filter Nintendo 3DS Card and Music, then the game will be the first one to appear. Tap the game and then the demo is to the left of the 'more details' option.

No Rhythm Thief for me. Went to HMV to collect my pre-order, but they haven't received stock from the supplier. No other stores are selling it either. Gutted because it's my day off today :(

It seems to be worse than what happened with Okamiden. HMV stocked a couple of copies of Okamiden in store, while no retailers seem to be stocking Rhythm Thief in store at all apart from Grainger Games ...if you live near their stores. My nearest Grainger Games is about 58 miles away >_< After HMV, I tried Currys, Argos, ASDA and Toys R Us, but no luck. Only other place I could have tried in my shopping centre was Sainsbury's, but I doubt they're stocking it if those other stores aren't. GAME and Gamestation obviously aren't stocking it, because they won't have new game stock for another week or 2 anyway.

Online it's a lot worse than Okamiden's launch. Most retailers stocked Okamiden, while not many are stocking Rhythm Thief.

Halo: CE Anniversary to cost 34.99

Shadzter

7 years ago

Many people here are misunderstanding. It means 34.99 RRP, like how brand new games are released at 49.99 RRP, but sell for 39.99 or less. Basically, this game's RRP is 34.99, but will likely sell for 24.99 or less.

Iwata outlines Wii U online direction

Shadzter

7 years ago

"Nintendo told Eurogamer at E3 that Wii U will offer a significantly improved online experience to that of its predecessor.

"The friend code system has also been refined. It still exists but in the same way that you'd need to pair up with friends on PSN or Xbox live. Now it's much closer to that kind of online gaming experience than what it was before," marketing manager Rob Lowe outlined."

They were referring to the friend code system of the 3DS in that other article, not the Wii U. The way you've included it at the end of this article will make people think the Wii U is confirmed to have a friend code system. Nothing's been announced about that yet.

@shrinkwrapped: Online price. I've pre-ordered instore and I'm sure it's still 219.99 with a bonus 20 HMV voucher. There are 2 bundles. One gets you one of a few select third party games for 229.99 and the other gets you one of the 3 first party offerings (including Street Fighter IV, since Nintendo's publishing it in Europe) for 239.99.

That report is regarding quotes from Sony Japan, while this one is regarding quotes from Sony Europe. I'm guessing that Japan may be getting 3G only models and we're getting a choice between a 3G SKU and a wi-fi only SKU.

Since the games are running off of game cards instead of UMD discs, then hopefully that will keep battery life to at least 3DS levels.
