Coleco Chameleon “retro” console Kickstarter launch delayed

Coleco Chameleon “retro” console Kickstarter launch delayed

We've usually heard of Kickstarter projects getting delayed or even canceled after getting funded. We've even seen a few that got their plugs pulled right in the middle of the campaing. But a delay even before Kickstarter starts? Not that common. And yet that is the strange situation that Retro Video Game Systems, the group behind the equally strange Coleco Chameleon gaming console, has found themselves in. They are delaying the "pre-sell" campaign supposedly to finalize the already existing prototype and to "make it even better."

Nintendo NX tip: beefy handheld with wireless TV connection

Nintendo NX tip: beefy handheld with wireless TV connection

Given how Nintendo's performance in the hardware area has been rather disappointing these past years, it is understandable that a lot of attention, which includes speculation and anonymous insider tips, is being lavished on the promised Nintendo NX. Sometimes, however, those also turn more into wish lists rather than plausible features. This latest tidbit almost seems like an example. According to the supposedly reliable source, the Nintendo NX will veritably be a handheld device with the processing might of an Xbox One and connects to at TV wirelessly with an HDMI dongle.

Nintendo NX leaked to support 900p/60fps native, 4K streaming

It's going to take a while before Nintendo finally reveals its new NX gaming console, which could make or break its place in the gaming industry once and for all. That means, of course, that there is plenty of time to hear about both good things and disappointing speculation. For the former, a leaked survey seems to hint that the NX would be at least comparable with its current gen rivals from Sony and Microsoft. But like any platform, it will be the content that takes advantage of the hardware that will be the key to the Nintendo NX's success.

PlayStation 4 Christmas gift is a block of wood

PlayStation 4 Christmas gift is a block of wood

A Christmas gift from no less than Santa Clause himself was opened this past week with a less-than-fantastic bit of content. Inside the box was a block of wood instead of the console itself. Cut to a similar size and placed in the box, apparently without signs of damage to the box itself. Amazing that Santa would have such a strange mishap, yes? As it turned out, Santa purchased this particular PS4 from a local Target store, where they were more than willing to take the box back and, in addition, give the parents of the gift-getter a $100 gift card for their trouble.

PS4 gets new Call of Duty: Black Ops III standard edition bundle

PS4 gets new Call of Duty: Black Ops III standard edition bundle

With Call of Duty: Black Ops III having already been released on consoles and PC for over a month now, it might seem like an odd time for Sony to include the game in a new PlayStation 4 system bundle. However, with PlayStation now being the official home of the Call of Duty series, basically meaning they get DLC packs and other content earlier than other platforms, Sony is betting on the bundle being a big seller this holiday season, especially for those who haven't picked up the game yet.
