The Nintendo Play Station that never came to be is going up for auction

The early years of the gaming industry are filled with myths and legends. Some remain hearsay, existing only as stories for the annals of history. Others do take on physical form even if extremely short-lived. The console that was supposed to be born from what would become two of the bitterest rivals in the industry is one of the latter but now the Nintendo Play Station will finally be up for grabs. At least for someone who has the millions to afford it.

It's a rather curious day for the Sony PlayStation and its fans.

And as if that weren't enough, it seems that Sony is also promising that one of the longest-running PlayStation exclusives will finally be making its way to other consoles starting 2021.

PlayStation Controller patents are both innovative and ridiculous

The PlayStation 5 is coming really soon and yet there's still some uncertainty as to what it would look like. The "V" shaped console that was revealed in a patent and a subsequent photo may be interesting but there's also a slim chance that this PS5 was only meant to be seen and used by developers. It isn't just the console itself that is shrouded in mystery but the DUALSHOCK5 controllers as well. While rumors claim that the PS5 controller won't differ that much from its predecessor, at least two patents from Sony show how the company had ideas that could make the input device a lot more interesting.

New ‘latest’ Hulu ‘won’t work on this device’ list drop

In late 2019, Hulu decided to split their app into two versions. They called these versions "Classic Hulu app" and "the latest Hulu app" in support documentation. Every device Hulu supports for the "latest" Hulu app will have access for years to come, more than likely. This includes Apple TV (4th gen and later), Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 (not including live programming), Nintendo Switch, Windows 10 devices, Echo Show, Chromecast, and a variety of others. What we're interested in here is the latest guidance from Hulu on devices on which "New" Hulu will and will not work.

PlayStation 5 dev kits are more interesting than the final design

PlayStation 5 dev kits are more interesting than the final design

Back in the early days of gaming consoles, each box, if you could really call them a box, exuded some personality with a unique and almost eccentric design. Perhaps due to the changing aesthetic tastes of the gaming market, that design trend stopped after the first Xbox and PlayStation consoles.

Sadly, the photo is reportedly that of a dev kit, which doesn't bode well for what the PS5 will actual actually look like.
