Yesterday, My Voucher Codes had some negative survey results concerning the 3DS. It seems that the consumer researchers aren't done with the bad Nintendo news, however, as they bring word that UK gamers are also letting their Wiis go unplayed for significant periods of time. 

Of 1,672 gamers, 64% owned a Wii, but 48% of them hadn't switched the thing on in over six months. A variety of reasons for the ignorance were given, ranging from a lack of time to the console having lost its novelty value. 

Perhaps even more damning, 39% of polled Wii owners only turned the system on so that they could play Wii Fit, a game released back in 2008. 

1,672 isn't a lot of people, even if it seems to coincide with the average Wii hater's opinion. What do you reckon? Do you still regularly play your Wii? Personally, I love the system and its surprisingly robust games, but I must confess it's been a few months since I used mine.

While Nintendo delays titles and refuses to localize others, I don't see that changing soon, either.

Tiiiimberrrr! Falling trees will be the death of you in Smash Bros.

At this weekend's Shockwave 11 Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament, player Lord Cat God found out the hard way that the Villager's tree isn't necessarily loyal to whoever created it. The result was a room full of suddenly boisterous people, and one of the more memorable and unexpected victories for opponent, Awestin.more

Toys"R"Us reaches out to those affected by the Lucario amiibo situation

[Update: The Amiibo Enquirer has seemingly figured out why people ended up in either group. If you got the latter email, it's because you payed with PayPal or a gift card, which basically means you're screwed. Everyone e...more
