More on Nintendogs/Nintendo's First Podcast

We mentioned Nintendogs, a new virtual dog game, on show #18 and just today we received an email from Nintendo about the premier of their very own podcast, which is news in and of itself! We're posting it here because their first podcast is all about Nintendogs! We are still working on a segment about Nintendogs for our show, but if you want to learn more about it then their show, which is produced for Nintendo by podcast pioneer Carl Franklin, would be a great place to start.

You can download it here [mirror] (Nintendo hasn't setup a website for this yet). Best quote from the show: Question: "As a parent do you think this is a good game choice?" Answer: "I think it is [because] we can't have a real dog." It will be very interesting to see whether people who perhaps shouldn't have a dog but would have gotten one otherwise will now use this as an alternative. If so that's a good thing!

UPDATE: Technically this isn't the first. Prior to this Nintendo published the audio from a speech given at a trade show and called it a "podcast", though it was a one time thing.

This is different though. It's an actual show put together by Nintendo, rather then just audio from a speech. Additionally they plan on having more episodes AND an RSS feed!

Until they have an RSS feed it's not a podcast.

Fair enough, it may not be a podcast "to the letter" at this point but there should be some leeway given since the RSS feed is on the way! :)
