Analogue Nt mini won’t limit you to 30 classic NES titles

Analogue Nt mini won’t limit you to 30 classic NES titles

In about three months, Nintendo will be unleashing the NES Classic, a smaller, and more limited, throwback to a console fan favorite. Naturally, NES “remakers” Analogue is following suit. But unlike Nintendo’s official mini, the Analogue Nt mini won’t be as limited, offering all the amenities of modern technology while still promising compatibility with the cartridges and accessories of old. That said, it won’t be as small or as cheap as the NES Classic either. You do, however, really get what you pay for.

PS4 Slim leaked to have a new DualShock 4 controller

PS4 Slim leaked to have a new DualShock 4 controller

We saw leaked photos of what was allegedly a PlayStation 4 “Slim” variant before analysts chimed that, yes, there is such a slightly redesigned console coming along with the PS4 Neo. While details are still as slim as the console itself, that isn’t stopping others from jumping in to show their own unofficial take on the still unconfirmed console. Like this equally slightly redesigned DualShock 4 controller, whose most significant change is a new, or maybe even a second, location for a light bar.

Pokemon GO Update makes Team Leaders useful, promises exciting features

Pokemon GO Update makes Team Leaders useful, promises exciting features

Niantic Labs has just announced what seems to be a very minor update to Pokemon GO, which could still pique people’s curiosities. For one, it finally gives a bit of character to the otherwise practically useless Team Leaders. It also very briefly mentions one of the most debated aspects of the game: bots (and cheating). But most importantly, it tells players to hold on to their seats because new and exciting features are coming. Which isn’t really that surprising, but is now actually more critical than ever before.

PlayStation Plus price increase coming for US and Canada in September

We've got some sour news for you PlayStation Plus subscribers, as Sony has revealed that the cost of the service will be increasing next month. This is the first time Sony has bumped up the price on PlayStation Plus since it first introduced the service as an optional premium subscription way back in 2010, so perhaps something like this was only a matter of time.

How do I get “free” Pokemon GO coins?

How do I get “free” Pokemon GO coins?

Pokemon GO players find an obvious (yet hidden) method for gaining "free" coins in this global phenomenon of a game. It's not meant to be a secret, but there it remains - many new players see the Pokemon GO items store and instantly assume that they'll have to pay actual cash to attain Pokemon Coins, which in turn will then allow them to purchase things like Lures and additional Pokeballs. It's just not true. The real key - or one of the real keys - is in plain sight.

PS4 Slim leak may be Sony’s biggest – with price estimates

PS4 Slim leak may be Sony’s biggest – with price estimates

The smaller version of the PlayStation 4 - the PS4 Slim - appears to have leaked in full. This device appears in a video with full boot sequence and exterior hardware. The owner of this device and video suggests that he or she purchased the device via Gumtree - the Craigslist of the international oddities universe. This device would - unsurprisingly - be smaller and slightly less powerful than its predecessor.

Pokemon GO down? No, I’m just banned

Pokemon GO down? No, I’m just banned

Soft bans and hard bans are popping up early today from Niantic as the company attempts to cut down a new wave of Pokemon GO cheaters. Of course not ALL of the users that the company has deemed less than on-the-level are actual cheaters - but quite a few (or most) of them are. I knew that my account was banned because I'd been keeping up on Pokemon IV levels with an IV checker - whoops!

Pokemon GO player gets banned after attempting to earn 1m XP in a single day

Pokemon GO player gets banned after attempting to earn 1m XP in a single day

When it comes to Pokemon GO, there's no shortage of players who are attempting to do ridiculous feats that would be too much for the game's more casual fans. The person who managed to hit the level cap through the use of a bot comes to mind, but what happens when you try to rake in the experience points through more legitimate means? It would appear that you get labeled a cheater nonetheless.

Tokyo 2020 Olympics vid pokes good fun at Japan’s gaming, anime culture

Tokyo 2020 Olympics vid pokes good fun at Japan’s gaming, anime culture

As the Rio 2016 Olympics comes to a close, it was time for the baton to be passed to Japan, who will be hosting the next big international competition. And what better way to introduce the world to the new host than to show them just how wacky the Japanese can be. In a good way of course. In its pitch video for the 2020 Olympics, Japan made some lighthearted, tongue in cheek jokes about the countries perceived obsession with gaming and anime. They even got the highest political power in the country to jump in, almost literally.

Sony has two new PS4’s coming next month

Sony has two new PS4’s coming next month

Well, that escalated rather quickly. Hot on the heels of leaks of a “PS4 Slim”, sources have come out to confirm that there will indeed be such a console. But more than that, it will actually be a separate console from the already expected PlayStation 4 Neo. While the double punch will undoubtedly confuse some buyers, analysts claim that it is exactly the strategy that Sony needs in order to stem the declining console sales and, at the same time, attract even more new adopters of the gaming device turned entertainment center.

PlayStation 4 “slim” seen at auction site

PlayStation 4 “slim” seen at auction site

Most gamers, particularly PS fans, are expecting the impending arrival of the more or less confirmed PS4 Neo. Little did we know, however, that there was, or is, another PlayStation 4 model, one that would fall under the company’s usual “slim” category. Such a PS4 slim was apparently held for auction online. And while it isn’t really solid evidence, it might inspire hope that a smaller version of the PS4 might still be coming or, better yet, might be the PS4 Neo after all.

PlayStation VR title Rez Infinite gets limited edition physical release with vinyl, artbook

One of the better looking games to support the PlayStation VR headset this fall is Rez Infinite, a high-definition update of the cult-favorite Dreamcast/PS2 game Rez. The re-release of the music-based shooter features remastered visuals and audio, and while PSVR isn't required to play the game, the headset is said to allow players to experience Rez in an entirely new way.
