Phil Spencer realizes that it might not work for every type of game, though.

Microsoft has just tipped its hand for what the company will show off at E3 in June.
Nintendo is into 'hardware sales', Sony is into 'having games', but Microsoft seems to think the best bet is 'addons' for Gamers, like the recently announced Xbox Game Pass for $10 a month, or before that the EA Early Access for $5 per month, and now they are talking about having 'storytelling games' that you pay a subscription to similar to how Netflix is doing 'original content', but will games want it.

We had the Nintendo report yesterday, and now here is Sony's report on how well the PlayStation 4 is doing, it was their best year ever with the launch of the 'Slim' and the 'Pro', but they are lowering their upcoming year by a bit, but they don't see Scorpio as a problem.

Business as usual

Once again, Nintendo will not hold a traditional press briefing onstage during E3, the company announced today.
On one side, Nintendo claims they have learned from their failures, but on the other side they are doing the same again crap, for the first time the big E3 Gaming Convention is open to the public with people lined up by thousands buying tickets for $200 each and they get with that nice front row seats at the big press conferences and will be able to see first hand what Sony and Microsoft have planned, but again if you an Nintendo fan you better run back home to your mom's basement, grab some chips and try to watch a Japanese-voiced-over Nintendo Direct video that is boring as hell, but this is Nintendo so I guess we going to have to get used to it from now on during E3.

"I have a duty to the public who are worried about this," says judge.

Teenage hacker Adam Mudd has been sentenced to two years in prison after creating software used to hack businesses such as Microsoft and Sony.
Instead of the normal 10 to 20 years for DDoS hacker, this one only got 2 years, as lesson for others, because of his young age, his bullying at school, and the fact he was doing it to gain 'friendship status' among others, instead of doing it to really earn money!

Adds 60fps in newest patch! --- It’s a good trade!

The Bomberman series tends to target 60 fps, which is why so many fans were let down with Super Bomberman R’s 30 fps cap on the Nintendo Switch.
Bomberman on the Switch was one of best-selling ever in the game's franchise history, but sadly, it was laggy, and horrible to play, but now the latest patch fixes up those issues, but at an great cost, it lowers the DOCK mode to 720p and the PORTABLE mode to 540p. :)

SigHAX.jpg
Finally some process has been made on SigHAX since the 33C3 event discussion about it back in late December!

Nintendo Scene Developer @derrekr6 teases an #SigHAX installer on Twitter, the tool should allow to Nintendo 3DS owners to execute unsigned code on directly on the BootROM which should be faster than the popular A9LH system which is currently used.
There is no word yet on when or if @derrekr6 will release his SigHAX installer to the public or at least document on how he did it, but for now with his tweet and picture, with hope that something will occur in the near future once he has made it more stable and reliable.
There been alot of speculation that this is also what Gateway 3DS developers have been working on for their next big release, but only time will tell when the big Gateway update finally comes out once the Easter Bunny...
