Cluster has released a NES/SNES/N64/SMD/DualShock gamepad to NES Mini, SNES Mini or Wii remote adapter.

The design is based around an ATMEGA16A microcontroller with 16MHz crystal oscillator (also supporting ATMEGA8A @ 8MHz without N64 support). The project is still in Beta phase and packs an impressive set of features. You can play NES mini, SNES mini and Wii virtual console games using original NES/SNES/N64/SMD/DualShock gamepad. You can also connect Wiimote to PC via bluetooth and use original NES/SNES/N64/SMD/DualShock controllers with emulators.

After launching the SNES Classic in Europe and North America in September, Nintendo has already sold over two million of the bite-sized retro consoles.

Forgot the 2010's, we are flashing back in time to the '90s, that is the in thing these days, with SNES Classic outselling even PS4 :)

Online Auction Ready Artifact-Kit!

The follow-up companion piece to the previous hot-selling 'E.T. The Excavating-Terrestrial' figures, and it really makes for great gaming history discussion piece for when your gaming buddies come over for some retro gaming experience and beer and pizza and relive the days when we play crappy games together on sofa in the rec room basement on a 14" CRT TV and think it was the bomb of super-cool.

Our money is on the ghosts!

We have reported before on MaxConsole, on how 'Casinos' are losing out to the new generation, and have been looking at ways to bring in new whales to grab their money, and one of the new ways is to bring back the Retro '80s Arcade gaming experience, but to change it up a bit to allow people to win back some money instead of just sucking away their quarters for some entertainment, and first up to plate to help Casinos bring in new fresh gaming blood, is Bandi Namco with their classic Pac-Man game changed up a bit.

Dude was able to dump the Star Fox 2 ROM onto a cart with a Super FX2 chip and apparently it works

Nintendo's latest hottest retro gaming toy for this holiday season is launching tomorrow, but alot of retail big box stores broke the street date earlier for the Nintendo SNES Classic Mini Edition, as such hackers right away got to work in ripping it apart, first they found out that it was 100% the same motherboard as the last year NES Classic Mini Edition, as such it was very easy to use existing tools like 'hakchi2' to dump the NAND contents, and of course find that previously unreleased SNES game called 'Star Fox 2' to see if it was possible to run on SNES Emulators and of course a real SNES hardware console, and it seems that is it totally possible to do so! :)

Atlus: "it isn’t the emulator itself we object to, it is the use of Persona 5... that we took issue with".

We have reported on the amazing progress of the RPCS3 Emulator before on MaxConsole, but sadly the development team posting videos of their PS3 Emulator playing 'Persona 5' has opened up a can of worms, with Altus USA taking the DMCA Takedown legal route to stop them promoting the fact their emulator can play their game, because one reason it is not perfect and still has 'framedrops' and other issues, making the experience worse than on actual PlayStation 3 hardware, but this is not the first time an emulator has come under fire, the most famous case was Sony vs. Bleem, when they developed an emulator to play PS1 games perfectly on the Dreamcast.

Mainstream news sites have been reporting on what the AtariBox will be like, with its crowdfunding starting this Fall, and it launching next Spring 2018 at the same cost of a normal PS4 or XB1, but it will have nice wood-grain, play Classic Atari games, run Linux on an AMD chip.

Play classic CD games and more on your modern TV

Yet another Retro Gaming System has appeared on IndieGoGo, but this one is bit different in that it contains an CD/DVD Player to allow you to play your original Classic gaming discs, and also has optional adapter for 'original cartridges', instead of other Retro systems that purely just run emulators with SD Cards, this one contains extra hardware to allow 'original discs & cartridges' to play directly, and so far at press time they have raised 26% of their $50,000 goal and published an impressive list of features and specs. as listed below:

What 12-year-old, with $1 million, doesn't demand video games be integrated into their epic treehouse?

So your only 12 years old, and you have million bucks to spend on building an Epic Treehouse, but for some reason you don't integrate any video games into it, seems like a total waste of your million bucks if you only 12 years old and getting yourself an Epic Treehouse.
