Nintendo Famicom Mini hackers find a secret message waiting for them

Though the NES Classic Edition and its Japanese counterpart, the Famicom Mini, shipped with a mere 30 games on them, we all knew it wouldn't be long before they were hacked. Sure enough, that happened over the weekend, with one hacker posting video proof that they had added more games to their NES Classic. Today we're hearing more interesting things from the people who have looked at the code for these new consoles, with one hacker taking to Reddit to share a secret message he found hiding in the Famicom Mini.

These are Elon Musk’s favorite video games

Overwatch fever has taken over, at least in the Musk household. You'd think that between SpaceX and Tesla, Elon Musk doesn't have much spare time on his hands, but he apparently has enough to play some video games here and there. In a new interview, Musk talks about what he's currently playing, and discusses some of his favorite games from the past as well.

The numerous photos come from Twitter user "DroidXAce" and depict the product line up of gaming accessory maker Hori. While some of the accessories are curious in themselves, even more interesting are hints about the Nintendo Switch itself.

New Xbox One controllers released as store exclusives

New Xbox One controllers released as store exclusives

Two new Xbox One Wireless Controllers have been revealed by Microsoft, one in red, the other in green. These controllers roll with color schemes extremely similar to what we chose late last year with the Xbox Design Lab Xbox One Controller - custom one-tone. The Xbox Design Lab still exists - it still allows users to select their own colors for an Xbox One controller of their choice - but not exactly like these two new releases.

Next Pokemon GO update may summon Legendary New Year Event

Next Pokemon GO update may summon Legendary New Year Event

The next update to Pokemon GO may indeed be the one where Legendary Pokemon appear for the first time. Word from the underground (and our anonymous source with knowledge on the subject) suggests that considerations are being made for China's sake. After being blocked in China just this week, Niantic is seeking a way to come back with a bang (once they've got their issues sorted with China’s State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, or "SAPPRFT".)

PS4 games work the same in Glacier White, but I want one anyway

PS4 games work the same in Glacier White, but I want one anyway

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a sucker for alternate colors in electronics hardware. As a tech journalist and as a consumer, I always look forward to new versions of devices - even when a new version is only marked by its new external trappings. Sony's approach with the PlayStation has always been one of total disregard for early adopters when it comes to colorways in consoles, making the only way for a person who has a PS4 to get a new look for their PS4 to buy a new one - like this Glacier White version.

Pokemon GO blocked from China release, missing out on population of 1.3b

Pokemon GO blocked from China release, missing out on population of 1.3b

It looks like Pokemon GO is going to lose a large chunk of potential players, as China has put a hold on the game's release for the time being. That means Pokemon GO won't be able to tap into the country of 1.3 billion people, at least not until it addresses some of China's concerns. Given the sheer number of people in China, Pokemon GO developer Niantic may be moved to do just that.

Final Fantasy XV bug let player into blocked off open world

Final Fantasy XV bug let player into blocked off open world

Given how long it has been delayed, rebooted, and, of course, renamed, the boy band road trip known as Final Fantasy XV is naturally the subject of much appraisal, criticism, and, of course, bug exploits. No game ever shipped without bugs, so it isn’t exactly surprising to see one like this. Fortunately, this out-of-bounds (OOB) glitch in FF XV is harmless and, to be honest, practically useless. Unless you happen to like spending nearly an hour enjoying the sights and dust of the game world. On foot, no less.

Famicom Pocket puts the Famicom Mini inside a Game Boy

Famicom Pocket puts the Famicom Mini inside a Game Boy

There has never been a lack of hacks and DIY projects surrounding Nintendo’s most beloved classic gaming systems, but Nintendo itself kicked off renewed interest when it launched the Famicom Mini in Japan and the NES Classic to the rest of the world. There have been some interesting work trying to replicate those mini consoles using a Raspberry Pi or, more recently, hacking into the box to make it support more than the fixed 30 games inside. This latest one to come straight from Japan is, perhaps, the craziest and best one yet, which practically puts a NES inside a GameBoy. Behold, the “Famicom Pocket”!
