Hey Nerd Nation, have you guys been thinking about upgrading your game console to either an Xbox One S or a PlayStation 4 Slim? If you have been then now is actually a really good time to do it because, you can get one of these new consoles from GameStop for only $175 US. If you currently own a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One then you can take it to a GameStop near you and trade it in for a $125 credit towards the purchase of a new console. I don’t know about you guys but that sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me.
It’s crazy to think that technology has come so far that we can now build gaming consoles at home for a fraction of the price they once were, and a fraction of the size. The Super Nintendo Entertainment System was a must have for every kid that grew up in the early 90s and allowed us to play some of the most iconic games to date. Well one guy found a way to make a tiny version of this awesome gaming console and he makes it look so easy. Now I want one.
What the hell are you doing Sony? For the last 3 years you have been on top of the gaming world with the success of the PlayStation 4 and just plain being about the gamers. Now it seems like the relationship you’ve created with your customers over the past few years is being flushed down the toilet in just a few short days. The PS4 slim and Pro look like nothing more than a blatant cash grab with most people being drastically underwhelmed, and now we find out that you are not allowing those user mods that we were all excited about for the remastered Skyrim game.
One of the most iconic game systems if not the most iconic game systems in history is making a come back. People like myself who grew up in the 80s and 90s rejoice because a huge piece of our childhood is coming back to store shelves. Nintendo announced today that they plan to release a mini version of the classic Nintendo Entertainment System. For some reason this wasn’t something that Nintendo felt was worthy of showing at their E3 conference but I’m still glad that they are giving it to us.
At this point my daughter is sort of out of the whole Barbie stage but I’m still tempted to get this for her. To be honest she never really was that big in to Barbies since she was more of a “tom boy”. However she might have been a bit more interested in them if this Game Developer Barbie had come out a little sooner. Still this is pretty cool and I’m very impressed that Mattel wants to encourage girls to not only play more games but possibly pursue a career in creating them.
This is my review for The UtechSmart Saturn Marquee Gaming Keyboard. Recently my Aula Gaming Keyboard stopped working so I was forced to purchase a new one. I did however do a review on that as well so if you are thinking about getting one or want to compare the two Click Here to see my review for that. I’ve had this new keyboard for about a week and my initial impressions are that I really like this product. However, I am not a PC gamer so my need and use of this keyboard may be different than your own. I run Windows 7 on my PC and it works no problem.
Microsoft came out swinging at their E3 2016 conference. Two of their biggest announcements were the release of the Xbox One Slim and another mystery mega console code named Scorpio. Both are said to be part of the “Xbox One Family” and sound very impressive. These two new consoles (in theory) would definitely put Microsoft at the top of the console wars in terms of performance. However, I wonder is Microsoft getting a little too over zealous and once again shooting themselves in the foot like they did with the initial announcement of the Xbox One?
