Nintendo unveiled its SNES-styled 3DS XL in August this year. It came after the company launched a Super Famicon-themed New 3DS XL in Japan. This version swapped out the Famicom logo for the SNES. However, there was a caveat. Nintendo only released this device in Europe at that time. That changes today. Nintendo is now bringing its SNES-styled 3DS XL to the United States.
Nintendo really hit it out of the park with the NES Classic Edition. The mini-console takes fans on a trip down memory lane, and what a trip it’s going to be, no wonder the company has sold more than 200,000 units of the NES Classic Edition in the United States alone and it still remains sold out. While Nintendo hasn’t said anything about this as yet, there’s speculation that perhaps […]

Headphones come in all shapes and sizes, some more flashy for the more fashion conscious, to more conservative and otherwise boring-looking models which are either priced really cheap, or cater to the audiophile who don’t really care how their headphones look like, but are more concerned about the sound. In any case for those looking for more flashy type of headphones, perhaps this modded pair of headphones might be of […]
As much fun as I’ve been having playing Tomb Raider this week, I still like to dabble in some old-school gaming from time to time. The only issue is I tend to gravitate towards emulators since I no longer own my classic video game systems, but Hyperkin’s RetroN 4 console seems to be something I, and I’m sure many of you, would want in your old-school gaming lives.The RetroN 4 will […]
Portable gaming has become quite big recently with the release of Nintendo’s 3DS, Sony’s PS Vita and of course, with the rise in popularity of iOS and Android phones and tablets. What hasn’t exactly taken off is making full-sized consoles of yesteryear portable, but after seeing this portable SNES, it might spark a trend of making old consoles new again with the addition of portability.A modded known as robotairz on […]
You know that a particular video game console has penciled itself into immortality when there is an emulator for it for just about every operating system out there. In fact, the SNES console has been one of Nintendo’s top sellers in the past, where it duked it out with the Sega Megadrive for a long, long time, and now we hear of the SNES emulator known as Snes8x that will […]
You know what they say – if you want to do something, do it right. Hence, the same can be said for collecting stuff (I’m not referring to hoarders here as they are an entirely different creature altogether).

Remember the Wii U controller? Yes, the same video game controller that had a display embedded within, coupled with motion sensors and what-not.

Pictures of the project have already been shared online and he’s is in the midst of putting the […]
The PS3 jailbreak code that was recently released looks like it’s going to bring a frown to a Sony executive’s face today. You can be sure that running an emulator console from its competitors isn’t something they wanted the PS3 to be able to do when they designed it. Take a gander at the picture above, and you’ll notice that the snes9x and NullDC emulators have been successfully ported to […]
