The PlayStation Classic is a miniaturised version of the original PlayStation machine from the mid 90s, and will come pre-loaded with a wealth of old school games to give retro fans their fix. I was actually surprised by how excited everybody […]

Okay I’m a little late to the party on this one, but as I reported last week, Nintendo’s share prices haven’t been in the happiest of places – presumably in the aftermath of the E3 presentation that left some people underwhelmed. Is Nintendo’s 2018 Switch line-up strong enough to reassure shareholders? Overall, I think there’s a lot to be excited […]

Is Google developing its own video game console?

A video game console from Google? Would it want to know my location? Would it be seamlessly integrated with my sofa? Would it hurt?? It’s tempting to let the imagination work overtime but the word on the street (and by “the street” I mean the internet) is that Google is developing some sort of video game hardware that could take […]
