NVIDIA Leak Could Hint At New Nintendo Switch In Development

Nintendo has repeatedly denied that a Nintendo Switch Pro could be in development, but at the same time, we doubt that Nintendo isn’t thinking about a future model of the Switch, maybe one that’s so  drastically different that it might be known as the Switch 2 instead of the Switch Pro.

Now, some of you might have heard that NVIDIA recently fell victim to a cyberattack, and as such, several alleged leaked files were posted online. According to a report from TechPowerUp, they have published a list of the leaked files, one of which contains a folder called NVN2 and a driver called NVNDLSS.

How this works is pretty much the same as how you would normally sync photos in the cloud. Basically, as long as you’re signed into the same account on the app as your console, whenever you take a screenshot or a video, it will sync in the cloud so after a few minutes, it should show up in the app.

Sony's LinkBuds Earbuds Are Some Of The Most Unique We've Seen

When it comes to headphones and earphones, Sony is no stranger to that market. However, the company has since officially launched the LinkBuds which we think is quite a departure in terms of design that we typically expect from the company, but whether or not it’s good or bad will depend on your preference.

As you can see in the photo above, the LinkBuds are a pair of earbuds that features a ring where the earbuds would typically go into your ear. Apparently this creates a more comfortable experience that would let you wear the earbuds all day long, plus the fact that it doesn’t completely plug your ears means that you can also remain aware of your surroundings and when people talk to you.

According to Microsoft, “Windows 11 users in the U.S. can access the Amazon Appstore Preview1 in the Microsoft Store, and popular apps like Audible, Kindle, Subway Surfers, Lords Mobile, Khan Academy Kids and many more.”

It Looks Like Nintendo Is Staying Away From The Metaverse And NFTs For Now

During Nintendo’s financial results briefing last week, a question was posed to the company in which they were asked what they thought about the metaverse and NFTs. Nintendo acknowledges that the concept of the metaverse has piqued their interest, but it seems that they will be staying away from it for now.

“As a company that provides entertainment, our main emphasis is on ways to deliver fresh surprises and fun to our consumers. We might consider something if we can find a way to convey a ‘Nintendo approach’ to the metaverse that many people can readily understand, but we do not think that is the situation at the present time.”
