Toys

As you might have heard, established toy retailer Toys "R" Us has recently filed for bankruptcy, but it seems that despite the company filing for bankruptcy, operations will continue as per normal. In fact according to a report from Polygon, the company has confirmed to the publication that they will actually be selling the SNES Classic on launch day itself.

The rep was quoted as saying, "Stores will open at normal time and have limited inventory of the console, so we encourage customers to get in line before doors open on Friday morning for the chance to scoop up this hot item." This is in line with what Toys "R" Us had previously stated, in which they expect that operations will continue to proceed as per normal for the time being.

Netflix For The Nintendo Switch Reportedly Ready, Awaiting For Approval

When the Nintendo Switch was announced, the way the console was designed made it look like a pretty obvious candidate for various entertainment apps since the console could be brought with gamers on the go.

Final Fantasy Ix Announced For The Ps4

Final Fantasy IX Announced For The PS4

According to earlier reports, it was suggested that Square Enix could be getting ready to bring Final Fantasy IX onto the PS4. This was thanks to a sighting by Gematsu in which it appeared that the game received a rating from The Pan European Gaming Information board, and sure enough it looks like the reports were right.

Square Enix has since officially announced that Final Fantasy IX will be making its way onto the PS4. Its release on the PS4 shouldn't really be all too surprising especially when you consider that the game was initially released on the first PlayStation console way back in 2000.

Nikon's Next Mirrorless Will Be A Full - Frame Camera

Nikon's Next Mirrorless Will Be A Full-Frame Camera

It's safe to say that Nikon's mirrorless efforts haven't really paid off much for the company, unlike Sony or Fujifilm, but it seems that Nikon isn't quite done yet. In a recent interview with Chinese publication Xitek (via Nikon Rumors), it seems that Nikon's next mirrorless could make a huge splash as it will be of the full-frame variety.

As it stands it seems that only Sony has full-frame mirrorless cameras, but Nikon will apparently not be resting on their laurels. During the interview, they spoke to Nikon's R&D manager Tetsuro Goto who said that any future Nikon mirrorless camera will be of the full-frame variety.

Nintendo Switch Consoles Are Hiding A Copy Of Nes 'golf' Game

Nintendo Switch Consoles Are Hiding A Copy Of NES 'Golf' Game

 

The Nintendo Switch is Nintendo’s latest console, but yet for some reason, it seems that every copy of the console that has been released to date is hiding a copy of the NES game, "Golf", or at least that seems to be what the folks over at SwitchBrew.org (via ArsTechnica) have recently discovered.

It doesn’t seem like the title can be easily accessed by just about anyone, so its existence on the Switch is unclear. It also appears that this isn’t just a coincidence as further investigation has revealed that the NES game was designed specifically to be compatible with the Switch, and that it will even support motion controls using the Joy-Con.

Limited Edition Pokemon - Themed Nintendo 2ds Xl Consoles Revealed

Limited Edition Pokemon-Themed Nintendo 2DS XL Consoles Revealed

If you're a fan of Pokemon or if you've yet to hop onto one of Nintendo's handheld consoles, the company has recently taken the wraps off two new limited edition Pokemon-themed Nintendo 2DS XL handheld consoles. As you can see in the image above, one has been themed to look like a Pokeball, while the other sports Pikachu's face on the front.

Apart from the new design, the consoles are essentially the same 2DS XL consoles that gamers have come to know, so if you already own a 2DS XL and you're not really a huge Pokemon fan, then maybe these consoles aren't worth purchasing. Unfortunately for gamers who wouldn't mind spending money to get another 2DS XL for the sake of collecting, it seems that for now these limited edition consoles will be limited to the Japanese market.

This Cute Little Robotic Puppy Can Tell If You Have Stinky Feet

In Asian culture, taking off your shoes when you enter someone's home appears to be a rather common practice. In some cultures like Japan, it goes even further as there are instances where you will have to take off your shoes when entering into a restaurant. This means that if you don't practice good hygiene, there's a good chance your feet will stink.

However as expected in Japan, they have an answer for that and it comes in the form of a cute robotic puppy. Created by Next Technology, this is a robotic puppy that could pass off as a soft toy, but it comes equipped with odor sensors that will be able to sniff the feet of people and when it detects what it determines to be a bad smell, it will bark.
