First Nintendo Switch Cartridge ROM Dumps Are Appearing Online

Regardless of whatever medium developers choose to release their games on, there will bound to be piracy. Whether it be a digital or physical release, somehow, someone will find a way. In fact it seems that less than half a year since the Nintendo Switch was released, it looks like cartridge ROM dumps are finding their way online.

This is thanks to a group called BigBlueBox who claims to have successfully dumped Switch game cartridge ROMs. However they are hard to find and a bit inaccessible at the moment, and obviously we won't be linking them here, but we suppose if you try hard enough you should be able to find them.

Rare, Sealed Nes Game 'stadium Events' Sells For $42,000

Rare, Sealed NES Game 'Stadium Events' Sells For $42,000

Old video games might not necessarily look the best, but they represent a piece of gaming history, which is why sometimes older games can fetch a pretty penny. In fact recently it seems that a rare and sealed copy of NES game "Stadium Events" managed to fetch close to $42,000 after being sold to a serious buyer.

According to Kotaku, the seller had originally tried to sell the game on eBay where someone actually won the bid, but apparently the winner of the bid decided not to pay for it. Thankfully the seller was contacted by a "serious buyer" and a deal was struck. What makes Stadium Events so valuable is the fact that the game was only released for a very short period of time before it was pulled and replaced with "World Class Track Meet".

The Nintendo Switch Online App Will Be A Major Battery Drain

The Nintendo Switch Online App Will Be A Major Battery Drain

As you might have heard, Nintendo has recently released the Nintendo Switch Online app for mobile devices. For those unfamiliar, this app is Nintendo's way of offering voice communication for players as well as access to certain online services and features for its games. However it seems that the app will prove to be a massive battery drain for users.

According to a report from Eurogamer, it seems that one of the requirements for users to use its mobile app for voice communication is that their phone's display has to be on all the time. This is versus other apps that offer voice chat, such as WhatsApp, Skype, Viber, and etc., where users are not required to have their displays on.

Previously Unreleased Stormy Ascent Level Out Today for Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy

Canon 6d Mark Ii Dynamic Range Falls Behind Modern Aps-c Cameras

Canon 6D Mark II dynamic range falls behind modern APS-C cameras

We've reported in recent years how Canon's newer sensor designs have started to close the dynamic range gap, compared with chips from the likes of Sony and Toshiba. Dynamic range isn't everything, of course: Canon's Dual Pixel sensors have brought advances in live view and video autofocus that for many people will be every bit as significant as the noticeable shortfall in Raw file malleability. But it was promising to see Canon getting competitive in an area where it had fallen behind.

Sadly though, it seems the benefits that appeared in the sensors used in the EOS 80D and EOS 5D IV have not been applied to the latest EOS 6D II, and the new camera has less dynamic range than we've become used to. Graphs plotted by regular DPR collaborator Bill Claff illustrate this pretty clearly. In this article, we're taking a look at what this might mean for your images.

Nintendo Switch Online App Is Now Available

Nintendo Switch Online App Is Now Available

A couple of weeks ago, Nintendo announced that they would be launching the Nintendo Switch Online app. This is Nintendo's upcoming app that will be used for its online services, where users will be able to interact with other gamers, manage their games, and also more importantly use it for voice chat.

The app was scheduled for a launch on the 21st of July, but it seems that someone might have pulled the trigger a bit earlier than expected because the app is now available for download for both iOS and Android devices. That being said, it seems that there's not much that one can do with the app at the moment since Splatoon 2 is the only game that will fully support it at the moment.

Fujifilm X-t2s Rumored To Feature In-body Image Stabilization

Fujifilm X-T2S Rumored To Feature In-Body Image Stabilization

Last year Fujifilm announced the successor the X-T1 mirrorless camera in the form of the Fujifilm X-T2. Now it seems that thanks to the folks at Fuji Rumors, they have heard some rumblings about a potential successor that could be called the X-T2S, and one possible feature of the camera might have been revealed.

According to the report, it seems that one potential feature of the X-T2S is that it will come with in-body image stabilization. What this means is that regardless of whatever lens you pop onto it, there will be some form of image stabilization offered. At the moment not ever XF lens by Fujifilm comes with stabilization, so no doubt if this feature is true, it will prove to be a boon to users.

Pioneer's Rayz & Rayz Plus Headphones Get 'Hey Siri' Support

With Apple choosing to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7 (and presumably future models), this means that users need to start looking for wireless headphones, or headphones with a Lightning connector, which admittedly are few and far in-between compared to "regular" models.

Now Pioneer is a company that makes headphones with the Lightning connector, such as with the Rayz series of earbuds. Now if you were considering the earbuds, you might be interested to learn that Pioneer has recently issued an update for the headphones in which the Rayz and Rayz Plus headphones will now support the "Hey Siri" command.
