        1. You guys are an awful community, I love this website and i’m tired of people starting ridiculous fights. This used to be a great website until trolls and other people started trashing the site. Some people just come to this site to talk trash for no reason, it’s really annoying. If you like Microsoft, go to their blog and talk, if you like Sony, go on their blogs and talk, guys it really getting annoying when all you see is people arguing for no reason. Respect all video game companies and don’t fight about ridiculous things. I am not biased but I never see any Nintendo fan-boys trashing your sites ! Just please stop with the arguing and keep the posts relative to what Sickr posts about or at least don’t bash each other.

          1. ok DID YOU EVEN READ BEFORE COMMENTING. no one on this thread that you’re commenting on said anything about microsoft or sony. and who cares if someone does? debate is good. this site would not be as good if there were no conflicting opinions. in fact any site where everyone just agrees on everything would just suck anyway. it would be like “oh this thing is cool…” and then thats it. eat shit and die.

            1. Debate is good, but people do it to such an extreme the make the site look bad, 90% of the pepole are saying ” youre gay, or fuck you, or calling people faggots or eat shit and die” They don’t respect eachothers opinions and think that they only have the best opinion. And i also dont see the point of other people coming to this site if they are just going to bash eachother

              1. I completely agree with you Jesse. I’m almost tempted to stop visiting this site because of all the stupid people on here. It’s a shame too because sickr is so up to date with his posts.

    1. Yeah, Nintendo sucks!!!….. the profit out of lowquality gamecompanies like Sony who try to divide us gamers apart, for the sake of there personal gain.

        1. Drinkink beer was awesome when i was 16, when i turned 21 it lost its luster. When i was 13, violence and ludity was kweel. But now im older and my senses require something deeper to move me…. which is what ur girl said!

        2. the difference of games on nintendo and sony is that some of nintendo games are original of them and cannot be on other console. but sony games and xbox games are on nintendo too! aaah and sony is a copy cat company, microsoft too! P.S: Fuck You

        3. That’s funny because Sony is taking much bigger hits than Nintendo ever did. I feel pretty sure they, if anyone, will drop the console race.


            Except the fact that Nintendo revolutionizes games while Sony is just a pretender and a poser. You should also know that Nintendo has franchise of games like the Super Mario Bros. series, The Legend of Zelda, Super Smash Bros., Metroid, Kid Icarus, etc.

          2. hey you know what the 3ds sold more than the psp and the ps3 confined on black friday so if think nintendo is a bad company get of this site

            PS can you reed this place is called my nintendo news

  1. Well isn’t this the company that does the FMV sequences for games like Professor Layton? So maybe it was their way of thinking since they don’t own Level 5, maybe they can own part of the games success/profits. :-)

    Also Mobiclip’s website are now looking for a console software engineer.

  2. This makes complete sense, get the company who’s worked the best on getting FMVs to work on their handhelds to work with them FOREVER!!! MUAHAHAHA!!!

  3. Finally, maybe now Nintendo can start obtaining all its manufacturing processes, from the very beginning (hardware concepts, software) to the end (manufacturing). There’s a reason Sony can sell a ton of hardware at such a cheap price, and Nintendo is going that route as well; vertical integration here we come!

      1. Since the PS1 and the PS2? And the PS3 is selling as a quad core system at $250! You know how much an i5 (quad core) processor costs? $209!

        (Not the same architecture but it’s still incredibly cheap)

        1. Does “599 U.S Dollars” mean something to you? PS3 is this cheap now because it’s 6 year old hardware. PS1 and 2 also had quite high launch prices.

          1. then there’s the vita, which costs $250/300 …. +~$50 if you want to play a game…. +$20 (minimum) if you want to be able to save your progress…. +$15/month (minimum) if you want the 3G data plan

          2. That was still god damn cheap back then. $600? Back then the best computers ($1000+) had Intel Core 2 Duo and (for around $400) Intel Core Quad (which is a quad-core processor).

            Both the PS1 and the PS2 launched at $299. That’s incredibly cheap. That sort of technology over a decade ago? You’re talking about amazing tech for dirt cheap prices!

      1. He doesn’t respect other peoples’ opinions, and has got to be the most biased person I have ever met. The only time I condone this is when it’s a troll, but most of the time they aren’t, they’re just people who like Nintendo, then they say they also like Microsoft and he goes like “OMG NINTENDO IS TEH BEST 4EVAR AND WIPE MICRODICKS ASSSSS111”.

  4. I is dah gay comments on tings me not try corrects gramma wen 5 yr olds write betterer than goings back to puts move controls up my bum now an wanks ova Xboxes.any1 wanna fuck mee up the asshole gyes.

  5. hurr durr durr guys look at me im saying something stupid and retarded

    that makes me much cooler

    srsly wtf’s going on, the level of retardation is over 9000

  6. Basically, Mobiclip’s technology is used to create cut scenes in DS games. And now Nintendo owns them, they own the Mobiclip technology, which means Nintendo doesn’t need to create their own solution! I think.

    1. They don’t need to create a video and movie creating things. Nintendo can just buy a company that does camera and computers they will be fine. Instead of using all their resources in every area like Sony does.

      This right here is called Vertical Manager.

  7. This made me think, are the Vita’s games cartridge based or are they more inline with memory cards? Like wonder if this was a move to stop them using Mobiclip, if Sony planned to use them, that is

  8. rides_a_ten_speed_everywere_guy

    ok since no one else is gana say this im gana say it. who and what the fuck is FMV and MOBICHLIP dose nintendo own this company or something YES OR NO!

    1. They own them now. FMV is Full Motion Video and it’s a way of putting video into games. Such as the animated sequences of the Professor Layton games

  9. You guys don’t really know anything, huh?

    It means Nintendo is now the parent company of Mobiclip, much like how they’re the parent company of certain other subsidiaries.

    And anyone who’s played 999 or Hotel Dusk will easily recognize Mobiclip.

  11. This is very good news. Now Nintendo has someone under their umbrella who can handle the the FMV sequences for the 3DS and maybe even the Wii U.

  12. Pingback: Nintendo adquiere la compañía Mobiclip | Juegos Ecuador

  13. This is good news, and means (mostly) that Nintendo won’t have to pay Mobiclip to license FMV and other services from them, since they now own them.

    I hope Nintendo branches out and purchases development studios as well. My top 4 studios that I wish Nintendo would purchase are Level-5, Vanillaware, WayForward, and Treasure.

  14. Once again, I’ve I and some of the early commenters have said before, this site is continually ruined by trolls. I sincerely hope you are listening Sickr. I understand that you just want to post news and leave the comments to whoever for the sake of freedom of speech and you’re policy is one of “if you don’t like it you don’t have to come to my site” but I have actually come to the point now where it’s become far too annoying for me, as I’m sure several other mature viewers of your site feel. Therefore this will be my last post 8/

    1. Sorry to hear that but if you go on another sites with a large number of commentators you’re always going to get trolls. Unfortunately, as I run the site myself, I have no means of moderating each and every comment.

      1. Yeah I hate all the trolls and immature people on this site but I don’t blame you sickr for keeping them around. Just do what you do best: giving us all the up to date information on all things Nintendo before anyone else.

      2. Everybody who comes to this site for news and not to feed trolls, should make a vow to themselves to ignore every stupid comment obviously made to start flame wars. That means no replying to people who post “first”. No responding to to people who post in all caps. No responding to to guys who only talk about anal sex. As funny as that is, if that’s all you do you’re a troll.

        Please show restraint if someone write something incredibly stupid and just don’t reply. Sickr does an excellent job here, but we, his readers, are responsible for the content of the comments section. Together we can bring some sense of decorum to the comments section.

  15. To those of you who don’t understand what it means, Mobiclip basically helps create prerendered clip scenes and such for mobile phones, PC and handhelds (only Nintendo though, from GBA to 3DS) games.
    They now belong to Nintendo.
    That is good.

  16. Yay more cintendo!!! (made that term up myself). I really do enjoy the pre-rendered cut scenes that Mobi provides so I am pumped to see what Nintendo does with this venture.

  17. Theree are few reasons you would need life insurance. If the ddividend
    is at least equal to the premium payment, then the policy is
    considered “self-completing. If your business’s value is so high that estate tax will require selling the business to pay the tax, then your children won’t be able to take over the business for their livelihood.

  18. Yes, didn’t the experts say – you get what you pay for.

    If after doing a complete, thorough fact-find, the prospect
    decides that all they can afford is term insurance, then term insurance is
    what we will help them buy. When you first call an agent, you’ll probably speak to the agent’s office staff.

  19. In the report, the ONS identifies that younger households (those with residents
    under the age of 30) noow represent almost half (49%) of the entire private
    rental market in England. These help ensure that there are no environmental concerns prior to purchasing the property.
    – Decide on the sector of the market you want to target – The first thing you need to do before anything else is decide what type of tenants you want to target.

  20. Property managers take care of everything for you, from advertising your premises for rental,screening prospective tenants,
    having the tenancy agrrement signed, rental collection, needed repairs and regular
    property inspections. So you need to calculate in the event of a claim that
    you wwould be happy to pay the excess and even more so if you are taking oout a policy for a block of
    apartments. >Loss of rental income – In instances were malicious damage has been caused tto a property, a loss of rental income may result while the propoerty is repaired or cleaned.

  21. This Deed of Guarantee is governed by English Law and is subject
    to the exclusive jurisdicdtion of the courts of England and Wales.
    Some insurers offer things that you can only get with working or professional tenants,
    for example some will offer you Accidental Damage for free
    if you have professional tenants, whereas some others will inlude thingts such
    as malicious damage by the tenant for a working tenbant when they
    will not cover that peril at all for anny
    other type of tenant within the rented out property.
    The aim of tthe different insurance services included undeer the banner of landlord
    insurance is to protect the interests of landlords
    who rent out residential properties to tenants.

  22. The more coverage the ownedr has the less financially devastating a
    claim will be. And the list goes on of worries thuat a landlord
    can have. Custmised and specific landlords insurance UK iis exactly what you have to hzve set up for your full protection.

  23. Mortgage interest is deductible on a loan to purchase, build
    or imprrove your home. Consumers shouuld be certain tat they aren’t overpaying for car insurance coverage’s or getting auto
    insurance coverage’s that they don’t need. Part Management off
    the property includes scheduling with the Landlord when repairs to the propperty can be made.

  24. A renter’s insurance policy is not pet insurance, so this
    is not a policy that covers your pet’s health.
    A buy to leet insurance is also required for
    your protection. But that’s still much less expensive than buying a vacancy policy ‘ and
    maybe you will turn it into a rental property.

  25. Your health insurer wiill pay the procider andd the auto insurer will pay you.
    First of all, that statistic only captured owners specifically citjng the laww as the reason for the surrender; within days of thee
    ruling there were reports of desperate individuals
    turning their dogs out into the streets,and there is
    no way too accurayely account for all the strays thwt animal control officers, shelters,
    and rescues may taqke in because of tthe new law.
    Of course landlords insurance UK woulld need to have some aspect of contents insurance if there were
    furnishings in thhe property.

  26. If you feel that you are being charged wrongly then you will
    probably have to take yoir landlord to small claims court
    to get your security deposit back. For most types of investment
    property, the interest paid whipe improving, building, or constructing tthe real property falls under the Uniform Capitalization Rules, IRS code section
    263A which requires that the interest incurred during construction
    or improvement should be capitalized instead of crrently deducted.
    Some companies, often those with higher credit ratings,
    are very selective about who they select to insure.

  27. Credit history is built from your history of using and paying credit
    on time. If you are in the market for home insurance
    wouldn’t you want to know about the basics, how to save money when buying home owners insurance, and how to get special riders for valuable
    items in your home before you talk to an agent. This may be difficult,
    as it often is costly for landlords to report information to credit agencies.

  28. However, finding a trustworthy and value-for-money provider caan be a
    challenge. As tthe nwme indicates, an ILIT is irrevocable and its terms cannot be amended after it is created.
    Additionally, iit is advisavle for rental owners to ensue their tenantts have adequate renter’s
    insurance policy.

  29. Property damage liability is important to buy with any auto insurance policy.
    A landlord kknows about a crack in the concrete walkway from
    an apartment building tto the pool, but doesn’t
    repair it. Right or wrong, good or bad, the owner always has the
    last word–even when the applicant is near perfect in
    every category.

  30. The mainstream occupations at executive, administrative and
    managerial levels comprise of the following kimd of jobs:
    . One thing to consider with your homeowners policy and our dwelling coverage is that tthe coverage limit iss based on what
    it costs to rebuild the home. The Move In and Move Out
    inspections are exactly what the names imply: an inspection performed either before the tenant takes possession & moves in, or ater the
    tenant mobes out & surrenders possession to the proplerty
