The Switch is by far the hottest video game console on the planet right now, and that’s not going to change for the foreseeable future.

The Switch has sold over 21 Million, and the SNES Mini over 10 Million, so portable and retro is in, but Nintendo's Mini even tho its small, is not portable, and the Switch can only play NES games, well no longer do you have to worry, As Hyperkin has you covered!

It's almost like people miss playing classic Nintendo games.

Recently, we reported that the Nintendo Switch has outsold the 'GameCube' and has past the 21 million mark, but what is more amazing is that during the same time period the Classic Mini's from Nintendo have sold over 10 million units and during half that time they were sold-out because they were 'limited edition' runs by big 'N' and now with them re-introducing both models this holiday season and lower the price of NES Classic to $59.99, we are sure going to see alot more units sold to be unwrap over the holidays. :)

Metal Gear Solid, Cool Boarders 2, Twisted Metal, Grand Theft Auto, Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Rayman and more legendary games will come pre-loaded on PS Classic.

Just last month, Sony shocked the retro world, by announcing their entry into the new era of 'Classic Mini's consoles' that Nintendo started with their hugely popular NES and then even more popular follow-up SNES Classic Mini, but with the PlayStation Classic which is launching in the North American markets on December 3rd, we didn't know until today the full classic lineup of the 20 games pre-loaded on it.

SEGA’s Naoki Horii stated that the Nintendo Switch was close to successfully running Dreamcast titles via emulation.

In a recent interview by 'Sega Ages' and published on 'Famitsu', it seems Sega is infact working on an 'emulator' for running Dreamcast games on the Switch console, instead of using the normal re-mastering process for games using existing 'source code', they are going instead for the 'emulator' route for their Dreamcast library.

Boldly claims that it'll have better 2D graphics than the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One!

Intellivision was one of first gaming 'consoles' for your TV's back in the day, and now that Retro and Mini's is all the craze now to relive your childhood gaming memories, Intellivision is the latest to enter the market, but instead they are taking a different direction, they not including 20 or 30 of favorite classics, they are instead building an advanced '2d sprite-based' system which will be launching in 2020, with its own games with what they claim better graphics (2D) of course than even what PlayStation 4 or Xbox One can offer you.

The current offerings of 'Sega Genesis' Retro Mini-consoles are not too good as they are basically 'software emulation' using cheap low-power ARM processors, but now Analogue has stepped to the Sega Retro marketplace after making a name for themselves with the Super NT, they are now working on MEGA SG which is 100% designed in FPGA by none other than the legendary Kevin 'kevtris' Horton.

Within hours after Nintendo rolled out their NES Classic Library, it was found to be easy moddable, and now this app makes it even easier!

Thanks to the hard work of scene developer @bodyXY you can now easy 'inject' whatever NES backup dumps of 'retro games' you want to play using the NES Online Classic Library interface that Nintendo so nicely added with v6.0.0 and make it so simple to mod, and now with v3.5 just released recently by @bodyXY it is even simpler and easier to get all the NES retro games you enjoy playing added.

Select and start.

The marketplace is filled with 'Game Boy Clones' and cases that add a 'Tiny Game Boy Micro' to the pack of your smartphone, but now Nintendo themselves has registered a US patent for a plastic shell which encases your phone in a Game Boy-shaped case, complete with working buttons.
The full patent PDF is attached below for your 'reading/viewing' pleasure, but here is couple more...

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...
