Forums - Gaming Discussion - Panasonic and Nintendo teaming up

Nikkei says PUX specilize in face and voice recognition tech.


Nintendo purchased a 28% batch of shares from Panasonic, who owned 78% of PUX. So, I think, Panasonic now owns 50% and Nintendo owns 28% of the company. Price was 35 million yen. Nintendo will deploy some of its own staff to PUX for development assistance. Will be used to develop tech that increases the usability of user interfaces for future game systems. There's 26 employees at the company. PUX started in April last year as a venture by Panasonic.

It could very well be for current gen. What with firmware updates and the ability to use movement recognition devices (like Kinect), this may be merged onto the U mid-gen.

they have always say, as soon as they finish one they move to the next one. There is a reason why Nintendo consoles are very durable. They are tested extensively.

A DVD add-on for the Wii U?

Hey, it happened for the GameCube!

I made a bet with JoeTheBro on February 19, 2014. I say the 3DS will outsell the PS4 at least one month in 2014, he says the 3DS won't. Whoever is right gets to control the other person's sig for a month.

Love and tolerate.
