Konami TurboGrafx-16 Mini is the latest entry to the retro console race

Nintendo, Sony, Sega, SNK, and even Atari have all put out their attempts at reviving old, beloved consoles and making them new. While Atari's VCS is a full-sized modern version of its iconic entertainment system, the rest have opted to shrink their revivals down in both size and the games they can play. Konami, who is probably better known for making games than any actual console, is jumping on the latter bandwagon with the TurboGrafx-16 Mini, a console that few might actually remember.

Contra Anniversary Collection detailed: The games list

It was a strange time in video game history when Contra first hit NES.

Konami kills fan remake of Silent Hill: P.T. for PC

Gaming fans may remember back to 2014 when Konami released a demo on the PS4 called P.T., or "playable teaser," for a new Silent Hills game.

Metal Gear Solid V multiplayer DLC detailed, dated

Konami's Metal Gear Solid V debuted last fall, and while it was a big hit among critics and fans, there's been little in the form of new content since then. Players who enjoy the game's multiplayer component, called Metal Gear Online, will be happy to finally hear about an upcoming expansion that will introduce new maps, a new playable character, and even a new game mode.

Konami leaving the AAA games business (save soccer)

Konami leaving the AAA games business (save soccer)

No more Metal Gear Solid from Konami - that's what the publisher is said to be executing this season. Right after the release of Metal Gear Online, that is - that'll take place October 6th.

They'll still be making Pro Evolution Soccer... so don't worry about that.

Metal Gear Solid V custom PS3 shows true depth of obsession

This week we're not the only ones getting pumped up about the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. One fan has gone the extra mile to customize their PlayStation 3 for the release.
