PS4 Concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on July 17th, 2011

The PlayStation 3 isn’t on it’s way out yet, but we all know that Sony is working on a PS4. We just don’t know when it will arrive. Whenever it does, we hope that it has some of the style found in this concept PS4.

This PS4 concept would be made from 60% recyclable materials, magnesium alloy and carbon, and use zero watts of power on standby. This is achieved with a switch that will turn the power off from the outlet every half hour, drawing power from its rechargeable battery for about five minutes to keep it going.

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on July 10th, 2011

Here’s something that Star wars fans will love. It looks like Microsoft is prepping a limited edition R2-D2 Xbox 360 console with Kinect sensor that will launch with the forthcoming Kinect Star Wars.

The machine will likely not be droid shaped, but it will be in a blue and white paint job as well as the Kinect sensor itself. You are going to want to trade in your old XBox for this one for sure.

Posted in Wii U by Reuben Drake on July 5th, 2011

Reggie Fils-Aime, the president of Nintendo of America, says that the original Wii won’t be disappearing immediately. The two consoles will be sold together in stores for a short time. We already knew that games will be playable on the controller, but now we have learned that it is possible for the console to stream other media to the portable screen as well.

That’s good news for your Netflix account. Reggie says that the Wii U will arrive after April 1st 2012.

Posted in PS3 by Reuben Drake on June 20th, 2011

Word of the new “CECH-3000″ model PlayStation 3 surfaced earlier in the month and now a retailer is claiming to have received a briefing on the new model. The CECH-3000B is an updated 320 gigabyte system. Power consumption goes from 230W to 200W, and the weight from 3.0kg to 2.6kg.

The power and eject buttons are changed and the LED lights removed, but we don’t have specifics on that. Pricing will be the same as the current model. You can expect the new version to ship to retailers when the current stock runs out.

Hyperkin SupaBoy portable SNES console

Posted in gaming accessories by Conner Flynn on June 7th, 2011

The Wii U is making the headlines today, but what about the old SNES? That was making waves at E3 too. The classic SNES has been reborn as the SupaBoy, from Hyperkin.

It’s a handheld version of the old console that will let you get your portable old school game on. The image is an early prototype, but we wouldn’t mind having it in this form at all. The plan is to ship by the end of the year for $79.99. Sign us up.

Nintendo’s next console is the Wii U

Posted in Wii U by Conner Flynn on June 7th, 2011

Coming in 2012, Nintendo’s next home console will be called the Wii U! A variety of new controls will be available thanks to that new controller with a 6.2-inch touchscreen in it. And you’ll no longer be tied to a TV to enjoy your gaming action. The Wii U controller can handle your gaming session when the television is needed for other purposes. That’s a great feature by itself. A built-in front-facing cam will let you video chat as well.

You won’t have to use that large 6.2-inch controller if you don’t want to, the Wii U will be compatible with all current-gen accessories and software. Your Wii collection will also play on the U version of the console as well.

Is this an early look at the Wii 2?

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on May 19th, 2011


Alright Nintendo fans. Sit down. Relax. Grab a Mario stuffed animal or something. This is bound to excite you. We have some potential news for you about the upcoming Wii 2. This is supposedly a video shot by a sneaky developer that gives us a rough look at what we can expect from the console.

We will know for sure what the Wii 2 is all about in a few weeks at E3, but for now hit the video. The controller looks like they slapped a screen on a GameCube controller. The console looks pretty typical of what you would expect. Something that looks like a docking station for the controller can be seen at the end. It all seems pretty legit. What do you think?

Sony Not Expecting PS4 “Anytime Soon”

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on April 11th, 2011

This generation’s console cycle is already longer than usual. However even though we are getting a successor to the PSP, it looks like we are going to have to wait for the PS4. Sony has stated that a PS4 isn’t in the works for launch “anytime soon.” They remain confident in the ten year life-cycle. Apparently very confident.

One analyst says that this could leave the door open for others to enter the console market. Maybe even Apple. Apple TV for instance could use an SDK and App Store to deliver games to television sets. The next generation Apple TV might just have the same hardware and software improvements that accompanied the iPad 2. That could be very interesting.

Nintendo 3DS is the most pre-ordered console of all time on Amazon UK

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2011

After selling 500,000 units of the Nintendo 3DS handheld on day 1 in Japan, Nintendo has hit another milestone. Amazon UK has announced that they have received more pre-orders for the 3DS than any other gaming console they’ve previously sold.

The Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii all come in second to Nintendo’s portable glasses-free 3D gaming sensation. They didn’t reveal the exact numbers, but 3DS pre-orders were 20% higher than the PS3, 56% higher than the Wii and 255% higher than the DSi. Looks like the big N has a huge hit on it’s hands.

Nintendo to introduce Wii successor at E3?

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2011

The Nintendo 3DS launches next week and now there are rumors that the company may focus on a replacement for the Wii. Frank Gibeau, label head at EA Games, said in a chat with IndustryGamers that he was aware of a follow-up coming. The device is unknown and wasn’t confirmed, but it is a fair bet that it will have have HD support, rivaling competitors from Microsoft and Sony.

Nintendo has been one of the most conservative console makers especially during this generation of console. The Wii was mostly built using faster but nearly identical processors as the GameCube. The company has often refused to discuss the possibility of a next-gen console as long as sales continued to dominate, but sales are not what they once were and it would seem that the time is right.

Is Microsoft working on the Xbox 720?

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2011

Microsoft may be working on the next generation Xbox, which we might as well call the Xbox 720. This speculation comes from some recently posted some job listings on Linkedin for what seems to be Microsoft’s next generation console.

There are listings for an Audio/Video Hardware Architect, an Audio Architect and a Graphics Architect and the listings reference ‘next generation’ consoles, so this isn’t wild speculation. We have no idea when we might see a new console, but at least they are working on it.

NES Cartridge Flash Drive with Console USB Port

Posted in DIY by Reuben Drake on March 9th, 2011

We’ve seen the NES modded into many different things and we’ve seen even seen NES cartridges used as cases for external hard drives, but this mod is ridiculous and awesome at the same time. Ed Lewis created this NES cartridge flash drive with a NES console USB port. That’s right, there’s only one USB connector inside that console.

To make one yourself, all you need to do is open up the cartridge, take out the board and make a gap for a flash drive, then glue it inside. Then open up the console, cut a hole in the middle of the cartridge connector for the flash drive to slide in, and another hole at the back of the console for a USB cable.

CircBoard is a great way to type on an Xbox

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 7th, 2011

Entering text on say the PS3 or Xbox is a pain. Especially in game. The Circboard can improve typing on a game console. The system splits the letters into segments that can be selected with the left analog stick on an Xbox 360 controller with the right analog stick selecting the specific letter.

Shoulder bumpers are the space and backspace keys, while the left trigger handles caps. It’s just a demo still, but they hope to get the system implemented in a variety of games and apps, so they are looking for investors.

Mattel Intellivision Game Console Cake

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 6th, 2011

This Intellivision cake looks delicious. It looks just like the classic game console. Okay, maybe it looks like a console that has been slightly melted by intense heat, but it still looks yummy. This one comes from Debbie Goard, who makes all kinds of awesome video game cakes and other themed cakes.

This Intellivision cake is a work of art to anyone who grew up playing the actual console. I’d love to dig into it with a nice glass of milk.
