256w ago - In addition to the recent new protection being implemented on Nintendo DS games, now both eBay and Amazon have officially banned the sales of DS R4 flash carts.

As expected, Nintendo is pleased about this and has issued a brief comment as follows:

Nintendo is pleased with the co-operation it has received from both eBay and Amazon to prevent the sales of game copying devices," Nintendo of America's global head of anti-piracy Jodie Daughtery told MCV this week.

"Nintendo has been aggressive in curtailing the sales of these devices on a global scale, from manufacturers in Asia to Internet webshops and retail operations across Europe and the UK.

"Since January 2008, Nintendo has coordinated over 560 actions and confiscated approximately 411,000 game copiers. In the UK, Nintendo collaborates with ELSPA and takes independent actions. Over 225,000 devices have been seized by authorities in 170 actions since 2008."

THQ Ships Gold-plated Nintendo Wii to the Queen of England

400°
256w ago - The Nintendo Wii has positioned itself as the gaming console for everybody. As it turns out, that includes the Queen of England.

Well, sort of. It's not like Her Royal Highness went down to Wal-Mart and bought one with her summer job savings. Rather, she was given a special version by gaming company THQ.

To quote: Buckingham Palace will be getting a special delivery today as THQ plans to deliver a golden Wii earmarked for the Queen.

The pack will also include a copy of the newly released BIG Family Games, as Philip, Charles and the rest of the royal gang compete for the living room crown.

The publisher hopes the PR stunt will amuse Queen Elizabeth, though we hope the 83-year old monarch doesn't throw her arm out swinging the console's presumably heavier gold-plated remote.
