SNES Classic Mini news: Super Nintendo stock update as new rival looms

The SNES Classic Mini has been a top selling console for the past few months, with the Japanese games giant struggling to keep up with demand.

Nintendo Switch games news: Portal FINALLY comes to Nintendo – but there’s a catch

Portal is finally coming to Nintendo Switch, although there’s a major catch.

Forget PS5 release date, new PS4, Xbox One X and Nintendo Switch rival in 2018 release

The PS5 release date is currently not known and isn’t expected to be announced for sometime. Some analysts believe that the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will help extend the current console generation’s lifecycle for another few years. And Ubisoft have come out and said that PlayStation and Xbox’s next big console launches won’t arrive until 2019 by the earliest. So it would seem that there won’t be any new gaming devices arriving in 2018 to take on the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One X and PS4. However, there is…

Nintendo games news: New device clones Switch design, provides big Wii U feature

For a while, Nintendo have been keeping their fans entertained with offerings from their catalogue of classic games. This has come in the shape of the Virtual Console, allowing Wii U and Nintendo 3DS owners to buy classic titles for the current hardware. But so far, the Nintendo Switch games list has not been boosted by the Virtual Console, with the Japanese games giant apparently settling on a different idea this time round. A new Nintendo Switch Online service is being launched in 2018, which will offer classic titles as part…

PS5 release date: TWO new PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and Nintendo Switch rivals CONFIRMED

Before the PS5 release date, the likes of Microsoft’s Xbox One X and Nintendo’s Switch will have to contend with other new console launches. While there are some that believe a new PS4 Pro successor could be announced in 2018, others believe the wait could run into 2020. That’s because some analysts have predicted Sony looking to their new upgraded console as being able to extend the shelf life of the PS4 brand. This will involve the company dropping the price of the PS4 Pro down a lot in the…

2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid review – Roadshow

Glittery, bright red paint in what Toyota calls Ruby Flare Pearl and with more contour lines than WTF moments in “Game of Thrones,” the 2018 Camry Hybrid stunned me with its visual presence. From the belt-line dip at the cab to the odd little C-pillar crease, Toyota’s designers express a lot of feeling in this new Camry. I almost expected a Lexus badge up front, rather than the upended-oval-and-steer-horns Toyota emblem. And beyond style, the new Camry looks big, not terribly surprising as it gains a couple of inches in…

KRACK Wi-Fi bug: Here’s how to protect yourself – CNET

Solid advice for setting up a new wireless router or Wi-Fi network in your home is to password-protect it. Set a secure password using Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) and only share it with those you trust. Since the WPA2 standard became available in 2004, this was the recommended setup for wireless area networks everywhere — and it was thought to be relatively secure. That said, like the deadbolt on your house, password protection is really only a strong deterrent. Like most things, as secure as WPA2 was believed to be,…
