Stream some more current games soon

PlayStation Now, Sony’s game-streaming service for PlayStation 4 and Windows PC, will finally receive some more current games later this year. A private beta for PS4 game support will launch in the coming weeks, Sony announced today on the PlayStation Blog.
Well NOW we might know the reasons behind Sony in killing off their PlayStation NOW service on most devices including PS3 and Vita, because they are planning on expanding it soon to include streaming PlayStation 4 games, so I guess they didn't want PS4 on PS3! :)

Split-Screen Local Play, caused Mario Kart 8 to lower down the 'framerate' when more players jump into their Karts!

Its been confirmed at the recent PAX East event, where Mario Kart 8 was finally playable on the Switch, that the framerate varies between 60fps and 30fps depending on the amount of Karts with human players racing around the track's courses.
But the good news is the pixels are 1080p when DOCKed, unlike the Wii U version when was only 720p with similar 'framerate' limits.

But you can't preorder yet!

It's a big year for Xbox. The company's new console, Project Scorpio, goes on sale this holiday, promising to be the most powerful system ever made.
TrustedReviews points out the other day that Microsoft has added an 'placeholder' on their store for the next version of their Xbox One console, which means they might be getting ready to unveil more info on it sooner than later, like what is rumored that it might occur at separate event outside of E3'17 and before it occurs in middle of June, but for now all we can do is sit back and wait to see!
Not much else is...

UPDATE: Premade test website added!

Now that we have PoC Jailbreak code to play with that contains some simple read/write commands, the need is even greater for an nice proxy hijack to take over the hidden WiFi hotspot authorize web browser in the Switch and direct it to your own testing website!
ItsDeidara has updated his 'DNSwitch' utility for the Nintendo Switch to add a premade test website, and you can easy replace that with the Jailbreak PoC code released earlier, so now is the time to really setup your Switch and start playing around and to see what you can figure out!

VIDEO explanation of WebKit Bug: CVE-2016-4657 and its walk-through and intro to Switch browser exploitation!

Just a few days ago, Qwerty, the infamous iOS hacker, tweeted a picture of his newly bought Nintendo Switch displaying 'DONE', but not much in way of hints except he took his old JailbreakME Pegasus 64-bit iOS v9.3 WebKit Exploit, and remove the iOS only parts of it!
After that simple tweet, the world was on fire, was the Switch hacked and Jailbroken already? -- Well not totally yet, that was just a simple 'DONE FOR' display on the screen, nothing more no public release, but now LiveOverflow has stepped up to the bat and has knocked out a homerun on the newly launched Switch, by releasing an stable PoC code on GITHub for all to enjoy trying, along with a nice full video for hacking noobies!...

Without the 32gb eMMC NAND Module plugged in, the Switch goes into NVidia DFU Mode!

@Maximus_64 noticed right away that when dumping the removable 32gb eMMC NAND Module on the Switch, the motherboard part without it installed, boots up into Nvidia DFU mode, and now @pgarba has modified the 'tegrarcm' utility to support Switch usage!
Hacking into the Nintendo Switch is moving along at an rapid speed, its only been out just over a week, and another major step has been undertaken, trying to access the 'Secure Boot' area, but what is missing still is the AES key that the Nvidia chipset wants, but one byte at a time, it will surely be discovered at some point in the near future, and then its basically child's play from there on it as we move deeper inside the Switch and discover its secrets to unlock!

The first Sinclair ZX return was an success, but the second one, the portable idea, is not working out so well for backers!

Over the past year, a company named Retro Computers Limited promised to ship its Indiegogo backers a portable gaming device modeled off the original ZX Spectrum.
Yet another crowd-funding project quickly going down the drain fast, leaving the backers with no product in their hands to enjoy, but the money is long gone into, the risk that many crowd'ers are now figuring out sadly, but their previous funding story was massive success, so why didn't their second round at producing another great retro console work out, TheVerge below looks into the reasons.

Simple Web Proxy Switcher for Nintendo Switch

A Simple .NET Framework utility to allow you to use the hidden web browser on your Switch for your own unique purposes!
So far the focus on 'hacking' the new Nintendo Switch has been in the fact their webview browser has old exploitable holes in it that have been recently demo'ed, so in that end there going to be need to have your Switch point to what website you want, once it comes to that, and this little utility just released by 'Ac_K' called 'ProxSwitch' helps in that regard in the meantime you can use it to help browse what ever site you want on your Nintendo Switch, until at what time some nice 'exploits' get released for all to play with and enjoy using!

Zelda Fanboys have Switch'ed their thumbs to an different form of 'Joystick' to play with over the last week!

Porn sites say they suffered a drop in visitors shortly after the Nintendo Switch was launched last week. YouPorn said it entertained 17 percent less gamers last weekend, after the console’s launch on March 3.
Nintendo has named their new console/handheld right, because their loyal fanboys 'Switch' from their normal daily job of 4chan fapping, to running around with Link trying to find Zelda, so much so that porn sites noticed a major drop in overall traffic since the Switch launch.

Steam-Review-Scores-Wont-Include-Unpaid-Games.jpg
Developers will no longer be able to mess with their 'overall game score' by giving away 'keys' to get positive reviews!

How much do you rely on the Steam review system when you are considering purchasing a game from the service? I know I use it. Last September, Valve began tweaking the system to combat what it saw as inflated scores. Now, it has changed it even more to eliminate the inclusion of unpaid games when the time comes to calculate its score.
When it comes to 'review copies', alot of developers were misusing their privilege and making the 'review score' more positive by giving away keys to people they trusted would leave them an nice positive review, but now no longer, as those reviews will no longer be counted.

Zer0Con.jpg
5lipper from @ChaitinTech will discuss his PS4 hacking experience at Zer0Con on April 13/14 in South Korea.

The Chinese Team Chaitin Tech, which became world famous after demo'ing their pwning of PlayStation 4 firmware v4.01 running Linux and playing Mario in an emulator at GeekPwn'16 are now talking at another upcoming exploit conference called Zer0Con.
Rumor is they are going to discuss and possibly release their PS4 Exploit at this conference, now of course will it be the same v4.01 one that is now blocked by Sony as per their agreement for winning the contest at GeekPwn'16, or will it be an updated v4.50 one, no one knows, and we may never know as Zer0Con is an 'CLOSED CONFERENCE' with only 120 private invited guests and some speakers, and like before if its anything new, they most likely have already informed Sony about it, as they an 'security research team' only out for e-Fame!...

JBME_Switch.jpg
@qwertyoruiopz - that's just how it goes - Uses a modified Pegasus 64-bit iOS v9.3 Webkit Exploit to get into the Switch!

Even tho Apple blocked the JBME web browser exploit used, it seems Nintendo has not, and with little bit of quick work, @qwertyoruiopz was able to use the old La Pangu webkit hijacking trick to quickly get into the Nintendo Switch userland area.
That's just how it goes! - Is all basically @qwertyoruiopz stated after it Tweeted the above picture, and now he has caused a whirlwind of posters on his Twitter, asking him questions, and trying to figure out more, but basically Nintendo has left a 'huge hole' in their hidden web browser used to authorize your access onto WiFi HotSpots and to link your Twitter/Facebook accounts to your Switch profile, and @qwertyoriopz figured out with a few simple changes to the address offsets of the Pegasus 64-bit iOS v9.3 Webkit Exploit used...
