Wii Sports - Coming to a Cinema Near You

Nintendo has found a new way to amaze fans and then suddenly kick them in the gnads so hard the contents of the aforementioned comes spewing out of their noses and ears.

In its latest bid to bring the Wii to the masses Nintendo will start advertising the Wii in UK cinemas. Now this isn't the regular advertising where you're stuck there being forced to watch all these ads as you eat your popcorn impatiently (and always run out by the time the movie starts!).

The concept is simple, it starts with a Wii advertisement on the big screen and then suddenly the lights in the cinema turn on and two 'random' individuals - a boy and his mother are brought onto the stage to try Wii-Sports for the first time ever. Best of all the game is played on the big screen!

As you would expect the 'random' individuals are actually actors, so no, theres no chance you'll get to play on the big cinema screen even if you bring your mother along.

Fighting the likes of Batman and random anime characters may make this game look less than authentic but it's surprising how the 'I am evil Homer!' routine makes the game as authentic as they come.

Xbox 360 Slowing Down GTA IV Development?

Rockstar's creative VP Dan Houser said in an interview with the official Playstation magazine (UK) that lack of Blu-Ray/HD-DVD and built-in HDD was hindering the development of GTA IV on the Xbox 360.

Well if this holds true then umm... yikes, the 360's life is going to be short indeed. It is interesting though, since the only ever seen playable demo of the game was actually running on an Xbox 360, this could well be a PR move to reassure the Playstation 3 owners that their beloved console still has its advantages.

Then again, could be the beginning of the end for the 360, perhaps 'future proofing' the Playstation 3 was a smart move after all.
