Nintendo at Sundance



On Nintendo´s press server there is an article summing up Nintendo´s presence at the Sundance film festival. It reads:
DID YOU KNOW? NINTENDO DRAWS AN A-LIST CROWD AT SUNDANCE

Jan. 25, 2006

Celebrities from the worlds of music, film and television lined up to check out the coolest Nintendo products on display at the Sundance Film Festival. Luminaries like Paris Hilton, Good Charlotte, Rob Lowe, Jessica Biel and the Beastie Boys visited Nintendo this week in Motorola’s Moto on Main celebrity lounge in the heart of Park City, Utah.

Visitors to the lounge got to check out all the hottest new Nintendo games for the top-selling Nintendo DS™, Game Boy® Micro and Nintendo GameCube™. Celebs like Lance Bass, Shannon Elizabeth, John Malkovich, Kristen Bell, Lucy Liu, William H. Macy and Tommy Lee received hands-on demos of the Nintendogs™ puppy training program and the hot Mario Kart® DS racing game, which features wireless online play via Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection. They also got sneak previews of the upcoming Metroid® Prime Hunters, Super Princess Peach™ and Tetris® DS games for Nintendo DS. The music-making program Electroplankton™ piqued the interest of the Beastie Boys, who will receive copies for themselves.

Other Nintendo visitors included Minnie Driver, Dennis Quaid, Chris Masterson, Joe Pantoliano, Adrian Grenier, Michael Rapaport, Nick Nolte, Daryl Hannah and Giancarlo Esposito.
Nintendo´s James Sakshaug was lucky enough to show their games and hardware to the celebrities, including Mixmaster Mike and the Beastie Boys, which suddenly combines my two main passions in life, for the first time. I just knew they´d love ´Electroplankton´.

Want to see for yourself? Head on over to WireImage, search for ´Nintendo´ within the ´Caption´ heading and you´ll see almost three pages of various celebrities playing Micro and DS. Don´t pay too much attention to the taglines, though. They believe Reggie Fils-Aime to be ´CEO Nintendo´ and list Beastie Adam Yauch´s nickname as ´MAC´. Good turnout for Nintendo, though.

LIGHTSHEDDER this is the 3rd time youve posted that same shit please give it up its quiet pathetic really

It's interesting how I rarely see articles about Sony or Microsoft in relation to celebrities trying their products, but about every three or four months I see one about Nintendo.

It must be their preferred method of advertising and building image. It doesn't work with me though. I hate to admit it, but I had never heard of most of the people in the pictures on WireImage.

On the same note, the captions are pretty funny to read through. They should of stuck with "Nintendo Products" on all of them. Instead we get:

Wavebird controllers - "Nintendo Game Boy Cube"

GB Micro - "Nintendo DS"

GB Micro - "Nintendo Portable Player"

I think the inconsistency is what makes it funny. They get it right in some pictures and wrong in the next.

googleplexer i'm surprised you havent seen this much with the other companies not that long ago they showed paris hilton (the girl in top pic) with a xbox 360 while they are still having supply issues at that. and if you dont know who paris hiltin is when you see her then you must live under rock

I agree on most of it, well said.

But dont play a video game - take a walk, read a book, practice religion, anything where you dont stare into a screen, meet some people and have a discussion about something not technically related. Enjoy your life while you can.

@ Blizz419

I said I didn't reconize most of the people. Not all of them. I go mostly by names anyway.

With the 360, I knwo there was the revealing on MTV with a bunch of celebreties, but that seems like a one time deal.

It just seems like there are way more "Famous Person + Nintendo" events than "Famous Person + Microsoft/Sony" events.

Seriousgamer007.com / On Nintendo.com have updated their homepage. It promises breaking news for February 3rd. I guess it´s just the launch date of the site. I´m interested to see who´s behind it.

An interesting OT from RevolutionReport

"According to a job listing at Creative Heads, an associate sponsor for the D.I.C.E Summit 2006 held next month in Nevada, Midway Studios of Austin is looking for a Level Layout Designer for a first-person shooter slated all three next-generation consoles.

From the Web site:
"Midway-Studios Austin has exciting opportunities for Level Layout Designers to apply their specialized skills on a high profile, next-generation first-person shooter using the Unreal 3 engine. You will be instrumental in visualizing game levels, and working under the direction of the Lead Level Designer. You will work within a level strike team, with a scripter, an audio implementer, and environment artists, to turn your dream into a reality."

Up until this point, it could not be determined whether or not the Nintendo Revolution would have the technical capacity to handle Epic Games' Unreal 3 Engine. However, given that Midway is planning development of this game on all three next-generation platforms utilizing the middleware, it would seem Nintendo's next console does have the ability to handle Unreal 3. Of course, this comes without official confirmation from Nintendo."

If it is true seems a great news for those worried about the supposed lack of next-gen graphic on Revo(not me however).

P.S. What a snowy day!
