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.

NES Classic hack adds 30 games with USB cable

Despite launching in the last few months of the year, Nintendo's NES Classic Edition turned out to be one of the hottest devices of 2016.
