Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Last of the Mohicans, Great Expectations, and A Midsummer-Night's Dream. No, this isn't middle school English class. These are titles made for the ever popular Nintendo DS Lite, one of 2008's most popular gifts. They're not games, however. They're books: eBooks. And they'll be available in the UK on December 26.
Implications - Nintendo has always been smart when it comes to marketing to its niche. Realizing that children need more to stimulate their minds, the company is combining gaming and education in a way that allows for learning, engagement and education at the same time. As the gaming industry changes, it's clear that entertainment isn't the only value in video games; interactive learning may become just as important.
