I hacked my Vita last night and heard today that Sony Japan will no longer be manufacturing the Vita starting in 2019. Shortly after the announcement the deathblow came from Limited Run games announcing they’d stop releasing Vita games in 2019. Stick a fork in her, she’s done.
Jeremy Parrish shows us Monster Truck for the latest installment of Gameboy Works.
This looks like a pretty decent console… It retails for 99.99 and it’s HD and handheld. The button placement is kind of iffy which gamester81 goes over. Overall it looks real nice and is very appealing. What do you guys think?
CES has been going down all week and one of the head turners was the Ultra Gameboy by Hyperkin. Hyperkin is hoping to resurrect the Gameboy in 2018 with a price tage of 100 dollars or less. While the design looks pretty nice and it boasts some interesting features such as backlight lit black and white screen a 6 hour lithium battery that charges with a USB-C cable, stereo speakers which is odd because Gameboy games only output mono sound but this is apparently for the audiophiles that make chiptunes with their Gameboy. I’m not too impressed by this considering I can buy an SP or DS for 20 bucks any day of the week and those are in color! EIther way an interesting device that has us interested.
ETA Prime gives us the breakdown of the RetroGame Handheld (is this the most generic name ever). It uses the Revo k101 body and allows good emulation for a number of retro consoles could be a good alternative to the psp if the price is right.
