Medal of Honor: Warfighter is coming to the Wii U

Austrian publication derStandard.at learned at GDC that Medal of Honor: Warfighter is coming to the Wii U. I don’t think this should come as too great a surprise, knowing that the Wii U is specifically designed to make ports from the Xbox 360 very easy, but it’s great to have confirmation.

Rumour: Overstrike, Dead Space, and Timesplitters coming to the Wii U

I’m quite sceptical of this piece of news, as I am with all rumours, and I would advise you to take this one with a pinch of salt. But it is still worth mentioning.

Nintendo just confirmed in a press release that they will be dropping the Wii’s price in North America to $150 on May 15, so there’s one rumour that turned out to be true. Not just that, but Nintendo’s also switching things up a bit by swapping out the bundled Wii Sports with Mario Kart Wii. […]

Has EA been developing for Project Café since August 2010?

A listing on LinkedIn (dug up by PixlBit) seems to confirm some very interesting information. Timothy Randall, a programmer at EA, apparently worked on audio support for an “unannounced Nintendo platform” as far back as August 2010. The 3DS had definitely been announced by that point, so that leaves Project Café as the only possibility. […]
