Wireless Adaptor Lets You Use A PS4 Controller On Your Classic 8-Bit NES Console

The original 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System arrived well before wireless standards like Bluetooth or Wi-Fi were established — it wasn’t until the Gamecube that Nintendo even offered wireless controllers. But thanks to this simple adaptor, your original NES can now use them too.


A 24K Gold NES Clone Is The Classiest Way To Celebrate Zelda's 30th Anniversary

First revealed back in 2014, the Analogue Nt remains one of the best ways to play classic NES games on a modern TV. And to celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of the most popular Nintendo franchises of all time, The Legend of Zelda, you can now get a gold-plated Analogue Nt to match your gold cartridges.


An Atari Cartridge Game Boy Lets You Play Retro Games Without A Console

The electronics powering the Atari 2600 were even simpler than those found in the original Game Boy. So why are recreations like the Atari Flashback 2.0 so big? There’s no reason they have to be, as lovablechevy proved by squeezing them into a old Atari video game cartridge.


If It Actually Played Classic 8-Bit Games, This NES Would Be The Perfect Backpack

Remember packing up your original Nintendo Entertainment System when your family visited relatives for a few days? You couldn’t possibly be expected to go a few days without Punch-Out!!, but it would have been a lot easier if you had an NES built into a backpack. It’s just too bad this one doesn’t actually play games.


Alienware Steam Machine Review: PC Gaming With Console Comforts

The Xbox Elite Controller Looks Great, So We Took A Crap Ton Of Pictures

This is Xbox’s $200 Elite controller. $200! Sounds crazy, right? I thought so too when Microsoft alerted the world of its existence. But yeah, I was wrong.


This NES Is Actually A Cake Made By An Australian Bakery

There’s no shortage of wacky wedding cakes on the internet, but this creation is particularly noteworthy because until you get a good close-up look at it, it doesn’t look like a cake at all. You’d swear it was a functional NES console complete with two controllers and a copy of Tetris, but it’s actually completely edible.


Steam Machines Are Back

When I heard Valve wanted to take over the living room, I didn’t believe it. When the rumours came true, I didn’t think it could be done. When Valve failed to deliver Steam Machines last year, I felt vindicated. Now, a year later, it’s happening. I’ve tried them. I’m about to eat my words.


Nvidia Shield Console Hands-On: Yep, That's One Sleek Set Top Box

The first Nvidia Shield was a gaming handheld. The second was a powerful Android tablet. Now, Nvidia’s going full game console. The new Nvidia Shield is a $US200 (no Australian launch date or price just yet, but expect at least AUS $300) set-top-box running Android TV, but it’s more than that. It’s a game console poweful enough to play a port of Crysis 3. And at first blush, it sure feels like a solid piece of kit.


This Wooden All-In-One Neo Geo Arcade System Is An Absolute Work Of Art

The last time we lusted over a cloned video game console it wasn’t some cheap plastic knock-off from Taiwan, it was the Analogue Nt, a perfect NES homage made from a solid block of aluminium.
