Here’s why people go crazy for the NES Classic Edition

Here’s why people go crazy for the NES Classic Edition

Even if you follow gaming news casually, you've probably heard that Nintendo will restock the NES Classic Edition next month and keep it in stock for the rest of 2018. Last year, the NES Classic Edition quickly turned into a hard-to-find sensation, and Nintendo caught a lot of heat for ending its production run well before everyone who wanted one was able to buy one. So, what's the big deal? Why are people so obsessed with getting their hands on this thing?

NES Classic Edition making a comeback next month

NES Classic Edition making a comeback next month

Call it modesty or inaccuracy but Nintendo seems to have a problem properly estimating its chances of success. Then again, after a long period of being left behind by other gaming console giants, Nintendo might have not exactly thought it would be this successful. From the Switch to the NES and SNES Classic Editions, Nintendo has failed to make enough devices to satisfy the demand for them. Fortunately, Nintendo does learn from its lessons and, as promised, the NES Classic Edition will be returning to store shelves next month.

Where Pokemon GO Fest tickets are as server crashes

Where Pokemon GO Fest tickets are as server crashes

This morning the server hosting the ticket sales site for Pokemon GO Fest crashed - in an extreme way. Users found themselves on the wrong end of a warning message that suggested tickets weren't available in certain quantities or in certain "sections" - North or South - which is silly. Users also got messages about the webpage's inability to process requests, and how users should most certainly "TRY AGAIN."

Nintendo Switch is getting a Monster Hunter game of its own

For Monster Hunter fans, it's already been a very big year. Back in January, Monster Hunter: World launched on PS4 and Xbox One to rave reviews and excellent sales, and later this year, the game will be making its way to PC - a first for the series. Unfortunately, a Nintendo Switch version of Monster Hunter: World isn't in the cards, but Capcom isn't going to leave Switch owners entirely empty handed.

Nintendo Switch Adjustable Charging Stand won’t address user gripes

Nintendo Switch Adjustable Charging Stand won’t address user gripes

Nintendo doesn't have much love for third-party accessories, especially charging stands and docks. The recent series of incidents involving the Switch firmware version 5.0 and third-party docks reveals the extents Nintendo could go to in order to discourage that market. However, it itself has been pretty stingy and unmoving when it comes to its own accessories. Since the console launched, it is only now announcing its first new charging accessory, an adjustable charging stand that probably won't satisfy Switch owners that much.

Nintendo Switch Virtual Console seems to be a no-go

Nintendo Switch owners have been expected a Virtual Console for a long time, and all the while, Nintendo has stayed silent on the matter. Even before the Switch launched, we heard plenty of rumors about the Virtual Console and the possibility that it would carry GameCube titles. Today, however, the likelihood of a Virtual Console for the Switch doesn't look very good.

Nintendo Switch Online Service details: pricing, NES games, cloud saves

Considering its wild success and its age in the market, it's almost unbelievable that the Nintendo Switch's accompanying Online Service hasn't launched yet. At least not in full and not with the paid subscription. That's all going to happen four months from now when the Nintendo Switch Online service finally opens its doors to more features. But before that happens, Nintendo is giving Switch owners an idea what they will be signing up for when they pay for a subscription.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was unquestionably one of the biggest games of 2017. Its release helped turn the Switch into an instant success, and a lot of people really seemed to love the way it changed the usual Zelda formula. It shouldn't be much of a surprise, then, that Nintendo is already looking to the future of the franchise.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze hits Switch in this week’s eShop update
