Ubisoft talks about the Wii 2′s power

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2011

Well we already suspected as much, but Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot mentioned that his teams will be able to use a lot of the work done on titles for the current HD consoles when developing for Nintendo’s new platform. Guillemot says, “So we will not have to redo completely the games that we create. We’ll be able to use all the capacity the console is giving but also use all the work we do for the other platforms.”

Good news for them and it’s not a surprise, but it does confirm that Nintendo’s next console will be as powerful or more powerful than the current generation of HD consoles. Yes, it should be a great console. Then again these are the same people who released the Wii with only 480p, so who knows.

Ubisoft Survey hints at NGP pricing

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2011

Sony hasn’t offered any pricing yet on the upcoming NGP portable gaming console, but we do know that it won’t be cheap. There will be two versions, one with 3G and the other with WiFi only. A new survey is being circulated by a research firm called Toluna, which is sponsored by Ubisoft and was called Ubisoft – NGP concept – EU Adults.

The survey asked if buyers would buy the NGP portable and then listed prices for the 3G and for the WiFi only versions. We have no idea if the prices listed are accurate or not. According to the survey the 3G NGP would retail for $350 and the WiFi only would be $250.

Wii gets camera motion gaming tooWii can haz Project Natal tu? Yep. But it isn’t coming from Nintendo. The Wii will soon get camera-based, Project Natal-like motion sensing for at least one fitness game. From Ubisoft. It’s called “Your Shape”.

Ubisoft’s version is like a Project Natal Lite. That’s because it’s a game accessory, not a system accessory. It tracks some motion, but not all. In fact, not much. Your body is used more for feedback than game control. Video below.

Get fit with Ubisoft’s DS Pedometer

Ubisoft’s DS Pedometer
We told you about Ubisoft’s My Weight Loss Coach for the DS in February. Now more info is becoming available on the pedometer that goes with it. Unlike Wii-Fit, this will allow you to get some exercise outdoors.

Just carry it around with you all day, whether jogging or walking, then plug it in to your DS’s GBA slot to download data. Motivation is up to you. After all, quitting is as easy as shoving your DS in a deep dark corner somewhere and forgetting about your goal. Plus it’s easy to get distracted by Mario Kart or Metroid. Just an FYI, the guy in the pic doesn’t need this, he’s not fat. But he could use some Just For Men hair coloring. He does look happy about his little toy though.

Ubisoft announces My Weight Loss Coach for DS

Ubisoft announces My Weight Loss Coach
It’s nice to see video game companies getting more into fitness, since they are responsible for much of the lard on couches across America. Ubisoft just announced a new title that should be available this summer called My Weight Loss Coach. The game is targeted at both casual and overweight players. The idea is to use customizable coaching sessions and a pedometer accessory to track physical activity.

The pedometer can be synced to the DS, and will help you keep track of daily physical effort, but it also goes a step further, helping you balance your food intake.
