@Tiel Not just portability for the Switch - if it could incorporate the gesture drawing with the touch screen that would really elevate it.

I had the US version.....I really got fed up of that save system. Hadn't realised it was different from the Europe version.

Google refunding $19m to those whose kids bought in-app purchases

I'm really quite happy with the Windows Phone kids mode (an easy to switch to mode with a defined subset of games, music and videos with store purchases disabled) that stops this happening. It was certainly not on Andoid/iPhone a few years ago but there is a less simple to use version now on Samsung Androids at least, and I imagine now on others.

I'm interested to know how Wii Fit Woman Trainer and Samus would end up being integrated into Mario Kart 8 (which will support these figures it is claimed)

Microsoft reveals the Surface Pro 3

geminifly

4 years ago

I watched the whole presentation and found the following points that haven't been mentioned in summary articles quite interesting. For context I have a Surface Pro 2.

1. My main gripe with the current one is the uselessness of the trackpad on the Type 2 keyboard - it sounds like this has been sorted out.

2. There was a quite bulky looking docking station that allowed the Surface Pro 3 to be plugged into a 4k screen (so it's got some oomph in display capabilities) plus keyboard/mouse. This would make it quite a good work device for me.

3. Another gripe I have is writing on it with the stylus feels unnatural. They explained this as being an issue with the thickness of the glass and in the demo they showed they've addressed this by making the glass thin.

4. One of the early points they made in the presentation is that 96% of Ipad owners also have a laptop - this is meant to be a device that stops people needing both.

5. They didn't say if they'd fixed their crappy power socket connector. The Surface Pro 2 has one of the most annoyingly fiddly connectors ever.

It feels like with this they've got the design right for the product. Whether it will sell is another matter entirely. And before MS fanboi accusations fly - I have a Playstation 3 and a Wii U - no XBox in my house!

Satisfy existing Wii U owners? Surely this must be a prelude to a Metroid Prime announcement!

Any issue I have with this game announcement stems from the fact when the announcement was prefaced by 'And now for a game we haven't mentioned before' my mind was thinking "METROID!!!!" and I was thus left weeping.

@redcrayon That's the baby! Thanks very much for that - would never have got it. Despite my lack of puzzle solving ability have plumped for Professor Layton!

@arremelle Thanks for that - but the issue is the Step 2 - I've already registered my system and don't get any banner coming up about this when I'm just browsing the site. I guess it would be good if someone who gets the banner can post the link up!

So the page says 'Any Nintendo 3DS XL system (European version) purchased since the release in July 2012 is eligible. In case you have already registered your Nintendo 3DS XL system in Club Nintendo, you will still be able to receive the free download if you log in to your Club Nintendo account and follow the instructions on the banner about the promotion by January 15th, 2013.'

However I don't get any banner coming up about the promotion - has anyone got a link to the actual registration page please?
