There are plenty of exciting games coming this fall, and one of the titles that gamers are looking forward to is the Rockstar-produced, western-themed game Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2). Last month a brand-new gameplay trailer turned up for Red Dead getting the masses excited for its launch.

This is most definitely the era of the retro console with Nintendo, Atari (the Atari VCS is up for pre-order now) and others in on the retro console action. Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) is considering stepping into that retro console realm as well with a revival of the PlayStation One console. Word of the possibility of a retro console from Sony comes from a source that should have a very good idea of what's in the pipeline. That source is SIE president Takeshi Kodera. His translated tweet reads, "Our company is always digging up past assets, and I think there are various ways to do it.... Read more...
Retro gaming has been a very big deal for the past few years with Nintendo really kicking things into high gear with the NES Classic Edition console. Nintendo followed that up with the SNES Classic Edition and the success of the consoles spurred other companies to make tiny versions of consoles from back in the day. We ended up with things like the Commodore 64 Mini and the Mega Drive Mini from Sega. Another small retro console is set to launch and this one is based on something that arcade gamers from the '90s might remember -- the NEOGEO. KOF World has announced on Facebook that the NEOGEO mini... Read more...
Retro gaming is huge right now and the resurgence in tiny versions of classic consoles is mostly thanks to Nintendo starting it all with its NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition consoles that were huge successes last year. Sega now wants to get into the retro gaming action with a smaller version of its classic console the Mega Drive. Gamers in the U.S. who were lucky enough to have one of these back in the day will remember it as the Sega Genesis. During the SEGA FES 2018 stream Sega announced the Mega Drive Mini console to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the launch of... Read more...
We have previously talked about the Nintendo Switch 5.0.0 software update, and it seemed to be a rather standard release adding parental controls and more social media hooks. What we didn’t know is that added code in the update appears to be bricking consoles that are using third-party accessories. Reports are coming in that after updating to the 5.0 update, some consoles are unable to charge and boot. It appears that the consoles unable to boot or charge are using unlicensed third-party accessories such as the Nyko Portable Docking Kit or the YockTek USB-C converter. The only comment...

The gaming industry has been doing quite well in recent months, with much of that strong performance coming thanks to the Nintendo Switch which is still dominating sales. The NPD Group keeps track of the industry and according to its numbers, hardware sales doubled year-over-year for January. While Nintendo might have the hottest console out there right now, NPD says that Sony and Microsoft also benefitted from the boom in hardware spending. "Hardware spending in January 2018 grew 119 percent when compared to a year ago, to $278 million," NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said. "Spending gains were driven... Read more...

What's that sound? Oh, it's just the collective sound of Fallout fans who'd rather not game on mobile platforms letting out a collective "Finally!". That's right: Bethesda's super-hot mobile game based on the Fallout universe, called Fallout Shelter, is coming to Xbox One, as well as Windows 10 PCs. Sorry, PlayStation fans. This is one of those times where you can hear about an announcement and not have to wait forever and a day for it to come to fruition.

Retro gaming made a major resurgence this past holiday season, with the release of Nintendo’s ultra-hyped NES Classic, a scaled down clone of the original Nintendo Entertainment System. Out of the box, the NES Classic has thirty preloaded game titles, though some recent hacks exposed a method for uploading more if you're willing to mess with it. That's all well and good, but if you weren’t able to get your hands on one this past holiday season -- like the majority of people -- getting your retro-gaming fix isn't happening any time soon, unless you fork out an unreasonable sum, paying hundreds to...

Gamers will have a new console to choose from in a couple of months. It is the Nintendo Switch, a hybrid gaming system that is built both for playing games on a big screen TV and for portable gameplay. Nintendo has not yet announced a price for its forthcoming system (along with a lot of other details), though according to Japanese-language news report, consumers should expect to pay around 25,000 yen (around $215 in U.S. currency). That is a roundabout estimation by Nikkei, the same Japanese-language paper that revealed key details about several of Nintendo's previous game consoles ahead of their... Read more...
