Easygoing Miyamoto suddenly tight-lipped on Wii HD console

Rumours persist that Nintendo is working on a new Wii console.

While rumors persist that Nintendo is working on a new Wii console, complete with HD and some kind of new interface, the notoriously loose-lipped Shigeru Miyamoto has suddenly taken to a more conservative approach when talking about Nintendo's future plans.

Miyamoto, always good for an off-the-cuff remark or two at video games conferences each year, was uncharacteristically mum when asked about a high definition Wii offering.

Speaking to German site 3sat (translated by Nintendo Everything), Miyamoto said he could not confirm what Nintendo was doing today.

"But the fact of the matter is that technology is evolving all the time and in Japan, for example, all the analog broadcasts will be stopped and shifted into the digital broadcasting," he said. "So many things are taking place and we are working in terms of the changes of the technologies all the time."

It was a peculiar answer, to say the least, but somewhat unsurprising given Nintendo's TV-like strategy in Japan at the moment. Next year could prove interesting on the Nintendo front, no?

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
