Just one simple tweet from big 'N' this morning, has caused the internet to be on fire, and millions already leaving work at lunch hour to figure out how they will be able to get their hands on one before the preorders are sold out. It's official! SNES Classic Edition is coming!

The Nintendo Switch is clearly having one helluva run in Japan!

Kotaku has been studying the weekly sales from Japan for the Nintendo Switch since its release in March, and comparing them to the similar early launch weeks for the PlayStation 4, and it is showing that the Switch is clearly going to be the main console in Japan soon. Here are both consoles’ first sixteen weeks on sale in Japan. (In Japanese, this list also points out game releases, like Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for the PS4, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Switch, and Final Fantasy XIV for the PS4.)

The Switch has yet to settle in the six to eight thousand range.​
eSOL have confirmed that the Nintendo Switch hardware uses their μITRON 4.0 compliant real-time OS and exFAT file system.

eSOL was selected back in 2013 for the Nintendo Wii U console and before that for the original Wii, and it seems they been used again to support the operation of file storage Micro-SD Cards again for the Nintendo's latest console the 'Switch', as confirmed recently by news site 'Japanese Nintendo'.

Nintendo Won E3 2017 on Social Media!

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is always a battle for attention, and it looks like Nintendo won it, according to a couple of reports that analyzed social media during the biggest U.S. gaming show.
Personally, I think Sony had the best showing it was all games, no talk, all tho it was missing 'release dates' for most, and Microsoft I think was second best with their line-up of 22 exclusive games, and of course EA as usual was the worse, but analysts are painting a totally different picture saying that Nintendo infact stole the show and won E3 this year, with more positive reactions than Xbox. :)

Rather than a traditional Mario title, this one co-stars the Rabbids, the characters from Ubisoft's long-running game franchise.
