Pokemon Company CEO comments on Nintendo NX hybrid rumors

When you consider that Nintendo owns the Pokemon trademark, it probably won't come as much of a shock to hear Pokemon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara say that his company will release Pokemon games for Nintendo's incoming console, currently code-named the Nintendo NX. What may come as a surprise, however, is that Ishihara has commented on what the NX will be when it arrives in what will presumably be March 2017.

The new Xbox One S is now on sale, and while most reviews are in agreement about Microsoft's refreshed console not being much of an upgrade over the original, it does come highly recommended for first-time Xbox One buyers.

NES Classic Edition details: save points, “pixel perfect” mode

NES Classic Edition details: save points, “pixel perfect” mode

When Nintendo confirmed and revealed the teeny weeny NES Classic Edition, some might have seen it as an obvious money grab that appealed to the nostalgia factor alone, desperately trying to mask the company's inability to innovate in the gaming console market. While the nostalgia part may be true, the NES Classic Edition will apparently also have some modern amenities, aside from HDMI output, only seen in emulators. Apparently, the mini console will feature different display modes and, perhaps best of all, save points any time.

“BATMAN – The Telltale Series” launch date announced

“BATMAN – The Telltale Series” launch date announced

There's a new bat in town, and it ain't your older brother's Batman. In development, and teased, for quite some time now, "BATMAN - The Telltale Series" is a video game that takes quite a different stab at the uber popular Dark Night. Because instead of mashing buttons to dish out pain, which you can't do anyway on mobile, you will instead be relying on your wits and decision making abilities to solve crime, beat the bad guys, and maybe catch a kitty by its tail in the process.

Nintendo collector finds ultra-rare US version N64 Disk Drive

Serious Nintendo fans from the N64-era might remember hearing about the N64DD, a disk-drive add-on for the console that promised to bring larger, improved games, as well as introduce rewritable features. While the device was intended for a US release, after several years of delay it came out in Japan in 1999 where it was poorly received, leading to a quick and quiet death and no overseas launch. Imagine the surprise, then, when one collector came across a working US-model 64DD in Seattle.

Sega Saturn cracked to load games from USB, after 20 years

As of last week, the Sega Saturn turned 21 years old, at least if you start counting from its EU release. Although it enjoyed an initial surge of popularity, the Saturn was quickly left by the wayside in the console wars that left only three companies standing. Like any old, obsolete console, the Sega Saturn has its own share of loyal fans. Now those fans can take their consoles out of storage. At long last, the Sega Saturn's DRM has finally been cracked and the console can finally load and play games off a USB stick instead of a CD.
