You can't play it on TV.

Nintendo Switch has its first game you can only play while the console is undocked and held like a portable.
We all have known for a while the Switch has 'touch-screen', but all Nintendo's Video Promotions in form of teaser trailers of games and commercials of people happy playing on their Switch, never 'touch' the screen, but its now been discovered that if a developer decides the game should be 'touch-only', it is allowed, they don't have to include support for the Console TV DOCKING Station Mode, or support for detachable side-mounted Joy-Con split controllers.

Sadly, originally Sony wanted to sell 2 Million, but they lowered down their forecasts, but are still pleased with the results!

Although VR as a field isn't lighting the world on fire the way everyone expected, that doesn't mean it's been a colossal failure for everyone involved. Take Sony, which seems pleasantly surprised by the success of its peripheral.
Is Virtual Reality Gaming on the PlayStation an 'failure' or is an 'success', it depends on whom you ask, but Sony is VR happy so far! :)

Just like MacOS, but for now Microsoft allows you to override the Windows Store only setting!

Microsoft is adding a last-minute feature to its Windows 10 Creators Update that is designed to block desktop apps from installing. MSPoweruser reports that the latest Windows Insider preview build of Windows 10 includes options to only allow apps from the Windows Store.
It is being called an amazing new 'security feature' to allow the user to limited their PC to Windows Store only, but there is fear that Microsoft will soon make this the new 'default' blocking outside 'Stores like Steam' and good old-fashion way of installing an SETUP.EXE

It took Piotr Delgado “The Mexican Runner” Kusielczuk 91 hours to beat Miracle Piano Teaching System, an NES game created to teach kids how to play the piano. (To pull it off, he had to teach himself how to play piano.)

That was the longest. He’s also spent 39 hours with the billiards game Championship Pool, 37 and a half hours with the shoot’em-up Ikari Warriors, and more than 16 hours playing Q*Bert.
We all have heard the stories of loyal video gamers collecting every single NES game ever made, produced, boxed, or sold, but really what is the fun in that, anyone can spend a ton of money buying old 30 year old games and storing them in boxes on their shelves, but the real fun is playing them all. I mean what the fuck are video games for, they are to be enjoyed, so rip open that $10,000 package of an unsealed never played before NES cartridge, slam it into your 30 year old console, pick up...
