(And if it had been posted to Facebook during that span in 2012, perhaps some of your friends wouldn&rsquo;t have seen it. Or maybe they would have!)</p> <p>Adam Kramer, one of Facebook&rsquo;s data scientists, apologised Sunday in a public post to his own account, saying that the study was done to measure the emotional impact of the social networking site. He also noted that they&rsquo;ve &ldquo;come a long way&rdquo; since their research practices in early 2012.</p> <p>&ldquo;Having written and designed this experiment myself, I can tell you that our goal was never to upset anyone.

Still pretty poorly, as Nintendo&rsquo;s latest earnings report demonstrates.</p> <p class="p1">Nintendo posted an annual operating loss of &pound;268.9 million (46.4 billion yen) for the fiscal year ending on March 31, 2014, the third consecutive year the company has been in the red. Nintendo previously expected a loss of &pound;202.8 million (35 billion yen) as of January, which is a far cry from its original projection of operating income of &pound;579.6 million (100 billion yen).</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/andrew-hayward" title="View user profile.">Andrew Hayward</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">Both hardware and software sales just missed their latest projections, although games like New Super Luigi U and the brilliant <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/wii-u/super-mario-3d-world/review" target="_blank">Super Mario 3D World</a> sold more than a million units apiece. Despite its unique second-screen GamePad controller, the underpowered Wii U hardware has failed to catch on with players and has spurned many major game publishers&mdash;notably Electronic Arts.</p> <p class="p2">&ldquo;Nintendo will seek to enrich the value of the Wii U GamePad, the most important differentiator of Wii U, and as a result expand the sales of the Wii U platform,&rdquo; reads the company&rsquo;s report to investors. It&#39;ll be interesting to see how.</p> <p class="p1">Sales for Nintendo&rsquo;s 3DS handheld also missed their target, with 12.24 million units sold against a projection of 13.5 million. But it&#39;s not all doom and gloom - 3DS software sales (67.89 million) beat their expectations (66 million) on the back of strong titles like Pokémon X &amp; Y, which together sold 12.26 million copies. Given that these games sell for proper money&mdash;the polar opposite of smartphone offerings&mdash;these numbers aren&#39;t to be sniffed at.</p> <p class="p1">[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2014/140507e.pdf" target="_blank">Nintendo</a>&nbsp;via&nbsp;<a href="http://www.polygon.com/2014/5/7/5690124/nintendo-posts-456-million-annual-operating-loss" target="_blank">Polygon</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/wii-u/nintendo-wii-u-5-best-games-2013/feature" target="_blank">The 5 best Nintendo Wii U games so far</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Analysis: Don&#039;t count Nintendo out </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">Some have speculated that Nintendo will follow the path of Sega and focus on making software for competitors&rsquo; consoles, but that seems unlikely. Despite its recent woes, Nintendo has a large supply of cash on hand and seems intent on doing its own thing for as long as it can.</p> <p class="p1">Considering the lack of software support, it seems unlikely that the Wii U will be able to compete against the latest Sony and Microsoft hardware. When the Nintendo 3DS started slow, Nintendo quickly cut its price and started bouncing back. With no such move for the Wii U, it&rsquo;s languished for months and major non-Nintendo games are mostly M.I.A.</p> <p class="p1">But Nintendo&rsquo;s been here before. Despite some beloved games, the GameCube was a misfire, but Nintendo rebounded by taking a huge risk on the original Wii. Attempting that move again with the Wii U hasn&rsquo;t exactly worked out thus far, but if any company can find a new and exciting way to change home gaming for the better, it&rsquo;s likely Nintendo. Don&rsquo;t count them out over the long haul.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-box-out-byline"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/andrew-hayward" title="View user profile.">Andrew Hayward</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="180" src="http://pages.haymarket.com/stuff_signup/enews_embed" width="300"></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/nintendo-s-financial-report-shows-wii-u-problem-isn-t-getting-better/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/nintendo-s-financial-report-shows-wii-u-problem-isn-t-getting-better/news#comments 3DS Console games Nintendo Wii U Wed, 07 May 2014 19:30:48 +0000 Andrew Hayward 1436714 at http://www.stuff.tv Fully Charged: Pono takes the money, Angry Birds takes an Epic turn, and a new contender takes on YouTube http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/fully-charged-pono-takes-money-angry-birds-takes-epic-turn-and-new-contender-takes-youtube/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> All the day’s premier news stories packed onto a single tech-tastic page </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="604" height="453" title="Fully Charged: Pono takes the money, Angry Birds takes an Epic turn, and a new contender takes on YouTube" alt="Fully Charged: Pono takes the money, Angry Birds takes an Epic turn, and a new c" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/ponoplayer_0.jpg?1394706143" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Pono smashes Kickstarter goal in a matter of hours </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Neil Young&rsquo;s Pono Hi-Res music player is set to become a reality.

The Play Sets let players explore, mess around in mini-games and take on missions set by an abundance of wonderfully recreated Disney characters. The missions are bread-and-butter affairs - climb some platforms, bash these things x number of times, that sort of thing. It’s breezy, accessible, depth-free stuff not far removed from the popular Lego games, but for older Disney fans it can be repetitive. On the plus side there are loads of neat things to find, such as the create-a-monster hut on the Monster University campus.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_bmUploads_2013-07-17_620_ToyBoxIncredibles6.png?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Chess.png?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Toy Box </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>If the Play Sets are a bit shallow for older players, the Toy Box is a much more tempting offer. This mode lets the imagination run riot by allowing players to mix up elements from different Disney franchises and use a wide range of items - from palm trees to character-slapping fly swatters - to mould virtual playgrounds of their own design that can then be shared with friends.</p> <p>What’s more, pulling out the objects you want to use and sticking them into the grid-like structure of the world is easy peasy.

That does feel restrictive early on, especially given that the Play Set missions are less compelling than the chance to mess around in Toy Box mode.

The £50-odd starter pack gives you one Play Set, three figures and one power disc that lets players access a bunch of extra items and features. Want another power disc? That’ll be £3. Want another figurine? That starts at £12 per figure going up to £25 for a pack of three. And another Play Set to play will cost you £30. So while <em>Infinity</em> offers the prospect of having always something new to play with, it’s going to do serious damage to your bank balance – especially if your kids have honed their pester powers to ninja-like levels.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Cars_1b.jpg?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_bmUploads_2013-07-30_677_POC___Base_w_discs.jpg?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Francesco_1.jpg?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-5"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Verdict </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><em>Disney Infinity</em> takes the raw figurine-collecting appeal of <em>Skylanders</em> and enhances it with a wonderfully accessible world-creation tool capable of enchanting young and old(er) alike.

Interestingly, this is actually being developed by Sega, Nintendo’s old arch nemesis turned collaborator, who will also be launching action-adventure platformer Sonic: The Lost World exclusively on Wii U and 3DS.</p> <p>Other games looked at in the video include Game and Wario for the Wii U (a collection of mini games designed around the console’s GamePad), Resident Evil Revelations (already available on 3DS, it’s coming to Wii U with enhanced graphics and new content) and New Super Luigi U. The latter is a major DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U starring (surprise, surprise) Luigi, along with Toad and Nabbit as playable characters. It’ll be released on 20th June.</p> <p>Nintendo says another Nintendo Direct video will be released around the time of E3, and that it’ll detail games due to be released further ahead in the future.</p> <p>You can watch the entire video above.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/apps-and-games/news-nugget/nintendo-reveals-upcoming-games-ahead-of-e3 </div> </div> </div> http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/nintendo-reveals-upcoming-games-ahead-e3/news#comments 3DS Console games Nintendo Wii U Fri, 17 May 2013 20:45:46 +0000 Sam Kieldsen 1423673 at http://www.stuff.tv New Zelda game coming to Nintendo 3DS this year http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/new-zelda-game-coming-nintendo-3ds-year/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Link fans rejoice – and there are new Yoshi’s Island and Mario &amp; Luigi titles on the way too </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-zelda-3ds-game.jpg?1371113854" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/mario-and-luigi-dream-team-bros.jpg?1371113854" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-twitter-banner_5782.jpg?1371113854" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Owners of the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/review/nintendo-3ds">Nintendo 3DS</a> can rejoice today, because the handheld system is getting a new Legend of Zelda game. What’s more it’s set in the same world as 1992’s A Link to the Past, arguably the best-loved Zelda title of all time.</p> <p>The new Zelda title makes use of the 3DS’s 3D skills by letting Link “become a drawing” and move within walls, as well as jump to higher platforms. It will feature an entirely new storyline and new dungeons. The game is scheduled for a release in late 2013.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div
