Sony jumps into the new gaming craze of 'Retro Mini' console, the only gaming company not with one is Microsoft now!

Everyone been wondering when Sony would jump into the 'Mini Craze', after the huge success of the NES and SNES Mini's from Nintendo, and even tho Sony has produced a tiny PlayStation before, the failed 'PSTV' console, this new Mini looks like the original PSX and comes with 20 pre-loaded games, but sadly it retails at $99.99 and infact does not include the AC Adapter, but it will be one to watch closely once its on market, as the NES/SNES units were quickly hacked by the 'underground scene' to open them up to piracy (backup roms) and playing 'other consoles' by expanding on the installed emulator cores, so it will be interesting to see if the same can be done with latest entry in the 'classic mini' craze, all is missing now is Microsoft to announce a Classic Mini Original Xbox...

Today, the Pokémon Essentials wikia and all downloads for it have been taken down due to a copyright claim by Nintendo of America.

Nintendo has been on a 'warpath' recently, first going after ROM sites, and now they back to going after 'fan-made' games, finally setting their sights on 'Pokemon Essentials' after it being free from any 'strikes' by Nintendo for over a decade, but that is no longer the case, as of today all downloads have been removed, but existing mods which don't feature 'Essentials' itself will still be allowed.

Nintendo has filed a lawsuit against the alleged operator of the popular console ROM sites LoveROMS.com and LoveRETRO.co.

The sites are among the most notorious online hubs for pirated games, according to Nintendo, and face millions of dollars in potential damages. With the launch of NES Classic Games on their Nintendo Switch coming up soon in September, it means we are in for another wave of crackdowns by big 'N' over any site that offers Emulators or Retro ROMs for playing Nintendo games on other platforms.

This news update is long overdue, but there are reasons for that.

Back in 2015, @marvin96 posted a story over on my website EurAsia titled PsNee, an open source Arduino based stealth modchip for PSX (Sony Playstation 1). The project development progressed over at assemblergames.com until the website was shut down for several months in 2017, during that downtime I forgot about the project.

But fortunately the developers didn't and moved the project to psxdev.net, and now there is also a PsNee Project at GitHub. There has been a lot of progress and this impressive open source modchip is now working stable according to...

In a 67GB Folder of ROMs on a Private Forum! / They were found in a folder called "DO NOT UPLOAD."!

Whomever thought a good hiding spot for long-lost 'warez' was right, upload them in the place you were not allowed to upload, and it worked, but someone figured it out, leaked a game from it and now the whole folder might be deleted making the games lost again.
